A Nostalgic Atmosphere

Choshi has developed as a modern city in accordance with the times, but part of its allure is that it has also retained some of the features of the post-war Showa period.
The picturesque charm of the townscape of Tokawa and the retro feel of the Choshi Electric Railway are two such examples, but a leisurely stroll around the city will uncover many more.
Old-fashioned mail boxes, traditional candy stores, family run restaurants and characteristic shopping streets all add to the nostalgic atmosphere of this unique port city.
