If you’re going to Chiba across Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line, stop by Umihotaru
One of the largest parking areas in Japan. Since the structure floats on the bay, the views are incredible, and on clear days you can even see all the way to Mt. Fuji. A variety of Tokyo Bay souvenirs are available, as well as the only video game arcade inside a parking area anywhere in Japan, a time capsule postbox to deliver a letter about one year later, a “bell of happiness” to share your feelings with someone important to you, and other facilities you can get a lot of enjoyment out of.
