Roadside Station: Tomiura Biwa Club
HIGHLIGHT: This was one of the first and most prominent Roadside Stations in Chiba, winning Best Roadside Station in Japan in 2000. The Tomiura Area is known for its large biwa or loquat, so be sure to try some biwa ice cream, juice or tea — even biwa curry. Afterwards, take a walk outside in their colorful flower garden or a participate in a fun arts and craft class like making a Japanese fan or preserved flowers.
RECOMMENDED: Visit between January and May and you’ll be just in time for some strawberry picking. Eat their juicy, sweet strawberries when they’re ripest. Makes for a fun family activity too!
