Anything to do at Ichihara?

Hi all,

I will be staying at social hotel anegasaki. So I have a day off, is there anywhere that I can go? What about the kominato train service? How Long is the train ride?

Anegasaki to Tokyo is only one hour, so you can go anywhere you want really. Disneyland is only ~45 minutes away.

How long is Kominato train ride? That all depends on where you're going. But the Kominato Line train doesn't run frequently and it's slow going. Better to take the JR lines unless you're going to the middle of Boso Peninsula.

The first thing that comes on my mind after hearing "Ichihara" is "Elephant Kingdom (Zou no Kui)":

Which I hear isn't very interesting- although I like (no, love) elephants. And a person coming from Singapore might not be into elephants (as I imagine that quite probably their zoos have Asian elephants).

The Boso Peninsula has nice laid back countryside feel and it gets nicer the further south you go to around Chikura, Kamogawa, and Katsuura. Good seafood.

Kanaya's Nokogiriyama Nihonji Temple is not bad although it will mean a real trek on the mountain. You may otherwise get across Tokyo Bay to Kurihama and go to Kamakura and/or Yokohama.
