Guide to Choshi

最終更新日: 20110401

For sight-seeing visitors to Choshi, the greatest charm of this port town lies, no doubt, in the natural beauty of its coast lines. Cool in summer and warm in winter, Choshi abounds in a large variety of delicious seafoods fresh from the neighboring waters. Choshi still abundantly preserves a naive atmosphere in itself, which is by no means easy to be found in other holiday resorts today.
