A stopover in Chiba (Japan)

In the spring, Chiba has brilliant carpets filled with tulips and narcissus in the Kominato railway area. This is also the season of strawberry picking in the famous city of Sammu. When summer comes, tourists often flock to Tateyama, Isumi railway, and Naritasan Shinshoji temple to admire the cherry blossoms blooming all the corners of streets.
