Chiba Prefecture is a prefecture of Japan located in the Kanto region and the Greater Tokyo Area. The sixth most populous prefecture, and 27th largest by land area, Chiba is on the East coast of Honshu and largely consists of the Bōsō Peninsula, which encloses the eastern side of Tokyo Bay. Its capital is Chiba City.
Chiba Prefecture was settled in prehistoric times, as evidenced by the Jōmon period remains in every part of the region.
The prefecture holds the largest kaizuka sea shell mounds in Japan, evidence of a large population in the prefecture that relied on the rich marine products of the Pacific Ocean and Tokyo Bay. Kofun burial mounds are found across the prefecture, with the largest group being in Futtsu along Tokyo Bay.
Chiba Prefecture has designated and maintains eight prefectural natural parks to protect both natural and cultural areas, namely the Inba Tega, Kasamori Tsurumai, Kujūkuri, Mineokasankei, Ōtone, Takagoyama, Tomisan, and Yōrō Keikoku Okukiyosumi Prefectural Natural Parks. Cities, towns, and villages in the prefecture also have designated and protected parklands. These parks are maintained for environmental protection as well as providing local recreational facilities.

Reverse design: Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line: A 15.1-km toll highway opened in 1997 that crosses the central part of Tokyo Bay, the Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line links Kisarazu in Chiba Prefecture with Kawasaki in
Kanagawa Prefecture on the other side of the bay in just 15 minutes. The 4.4-km bridge on the Kisarazu side is Japan’s longest, and joins a tunnel extending approximately 9.5 km from the Kawasaki side. The bridge and tunnel link up at Umihotaru (the artificial island of Kisarazu), which offers a 360 panoramic view of the sea that is particularly beautiful at sunrise, sunset, and at night. With 7.8 million visitors in 2013, it is one of Chiba Prefecture’s best-known tourist destinations.
