Kisarazu

“A great experience to discover a new city in Japan.”

Kisarazu is located in Chiba Prefecture and is 30 minutes away from Haneda Airport. Our team was lucky to explore this beautiful city with the help of Kisarazu Tourism Promotion Section.

First stop is Umihotaru. This attraction is a man-made island that is accessible from the Tokyo Wan Aqua Line tunnel. This landmark was designed like a ship which houses different restaurants, coffee shops, and confectionaries (Takoyaki is a must try!). Visitors can also buy Loquats which is a local specialty. It’s a fruit that tastes like yam bean with a texture of peaches. If you’re up to nothing, you can stay at the top deck and just relax while enjoying the view of the sea.

Jina’s Blog: Finding Happiness in Cambodia

“I traveled. Maybe it is because Cambodia was long at war—and so naturally, the Cambodian people are still healing from its effects. Even our tour guide had a lot to say about his personal experience from the war. Imagine childhood memories filled with violence? Extremely sad indeed. And that’s probably why I didn’t see a lot of smiles as I went around. Sometimes it seemed as though people just existed—and understandably so.”
