  • I stopped by at the break. Nice and clean room. Souvenir variety was mainly local ones. I would take a look at views over the sea, there is also good. Staffs were quite even on weekdays.

  • Stopped in the middle of the drive. There was leisure discount coupon at the information center. Foot bath overlooking the sea is the best. You can buy if you do not bring a towel.

  • This is the parking area of the Aqua-line. Contains many shops and restaurants Chiba souvenirs are also readily available. Some restaurants have parking congestion and closed on Saturday and closed almost empty during the week. Mt Fuji, Tokyo Tower, sky looks on sunny days?

  • What a wonderful place to see sunset. The firsttimeI could see the such sunset like that. The plan went through the sky.
  • This place has spectacular views all around the bay from Tokyo prefecture, to Kanagawa and Chiba. It's absolutely breathtaking and a great midway stop between passing from prefecture to prefecture. We had lunch in the food court here (which could use a few more seats) and the food was great. I recommend the "Chi-ba don" (ちーば丼) which is so worth the ¥1200 for how much fresh ingredients is in it (fish, eel, sweet egg, clams, etc!). This place also will have any information you need for tourist and local destinations, and some in English, too. The only downfall (which could be because it was the weekend) is that once you get off the exit to get a parking spot, it can have LONG lines that take a while...also it's only accessible by car, no trains.
  • Excellent place to stop by and have a great panorama view of the sea. There are many restaurants, offering variety food.
  • An artificial island only reachable via 9km tunnel. Has good views, a food court and several shops. Worth a visit.
  • It is a huge resting area in the middle of Tokyo bay. It has a lot of shop and restaurant there. It almost likes large shopping malls (in a middle of the sea).
