Tateyama

Tateyama ©
Tateyama is a city located in southern Chiba Prefecture, Japan. Merasaki Shrine and Nojimasaki Lighthouse are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Hojo Beach and Oki no Shima. Venture out of the city with trips to Mt. Iyogatake (in Minamiboso), Kyonan-machi (Nokogiri Mountain Nihon Temple, Nokogiriyama Nihonji Tenbodai, & more) and Futtsu (Mother Farm & Takagoyama Nature Zoo). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Minami Chikura Beach, visit a coastal fixture at Sunosaki Lighthouse, explore the historical opulence of Tateyama Castle (City Museum Branch), and don't miss a visit to Cape Nojima.

Plan my Tateyama trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Toronto, Canada to Tateyama is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 14 hours traveling from Toronto to Tateyama. Traveling from Toronto in September, Tateyama is a bit warmer at night with lows of 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Tue) early enough to travel to Katsuura.

Urayasu

Urayasu ©
A city lying on Tokyo Bay, Urayasu used to stand separate from the giant metropolis next door, but now, even though it belongs to another prefecture, it seems part of the capital.
For shopping fun, head to Ikspiari or Mitsui Outlet Park Makuhari. Discover out-of-the-way places like Umihotaru and Bon Voyage. Change things up with these side-trips from Urayasu: Mitsui Outlet Park Kisarazu (in Kisarazu), Country Farm Tokyo German Village (in Sodegaura) and Chiba (Kotehashi Onsui Pool, Chiba Zoological Park, & more). Have a day of magic on the 14th (Sun) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's still lots to do: discover the magic at Tokyo DisneySea, contemplate the waterfront views at Kombukuro Pond Natural History Park, buy something for everyone on your list at Lalaport Tokyo Bay, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Makuhari Beach.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Urayasu day trip planning site .

Getting from Shisui-machi to Urayasu by car takes about an hour. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Shisui-machi in October since evenings lows in Urayasu dip to 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
