Tourist information along the railway line
~ Yukemuri and Takenoko no Sato, which have prospered as a castle town since the Warring States period ~
Otaki Town is located almost in the center of the Boso Peninsula, and has developed as a castle town while the Sengoku daimyo fighting for hegemony are divided into groups. Although it is the only area in the Minamiboso area that does not face the sea, there are many ways to enjoy Satoyama, such as the Yoro Valley where the autumn leaves are beautiful, the Yoro Onsen where you can enjoy the brown black water, and the bamboo shoot digging. The head office of Isumi Railway is also located in the town block (Dental Support Otaki Station).
Tourist brochures, etc.
-Encounter the rich nature of Satoumi and Satoyama and follow in the footsteps of Boso's master craftsmen-
Isumi City boasts abundant landings such as "Sotobo spiny lobster" and "Taito / Ohara octopus" certified as Chiba brand marine products. If you take the Isumi Railway and head west away from the rich sea, you can see the sculptures of Boso's master craftsman "Nami no Ihachi", which gives dignity to the ancient temples that have gathered the laid-back scenery of satoyama and worship.
-Beautiful rias beach, beaches where you can play, fresh seafood and B-class gourmet are popular-
Katsuura City boasts one of the best bonito landings in Japan. The morning market, which started as a barter for fresh seafood and abundant agricultural products, has been a treasure of the region for more than 400 years. Recently, attention has been focused on the Katsura Big Hina Festival, which is a masterpiece of huge chicks, and Tantanmen, which has been loved by fishermen.
-Why don't you enjoy the exquisite spiny lobster and walk in the desert of the moon?
In Onjuku Town, there is a large and beautiful Onjuku coast that was a model for the nursery rhyme "Tsuki no Saba". In addition, there are few municipal pools in the area, and it is crowded with many leisure travelers in the summer. There are plenty of seafood such as spiny lobster, abalone, turban shell, and splendid alfonsino, and it is recommended to taste the freshly caught seafood. With a tropical mood, it is a comfortable town with a relaxed atmosphere.
