Trip to Choshi town and Inobosaki cape, Chiba prefecture

Choshi, Chiba
powered by

Choshi is located on extreme East of Kanto region, Chiba prefecture. It has impressive waves and also first sunrise in Japan on New Years Day.

Movie starts with the glimpse on Choshi railway train, later views of waves and sea from Choshi lighthouse and Byobugaura cliffs, which are called Dover of the East. These are 40-50m cliffs which runs along coastline for 10 km. Now there was small road built, which a bit took away magic and wilderness of the place. At Byobugaura, day turned into night so I returned.
