Chiba is the capital city of Chiba Prefecture, southeast of Tokyo. It is home to Chiba Port and the business district of Makuhari, where Makuhari Messe, a major event space, is located. From the Chiba Urban Monorail, the longest suspended monorail in the world, to Chiba City Zoological Park and its red pandas, explore the many sites that Chiba city has to offer.

Chiba Zoological Park is comprised of five distinct zones that are well organized, large enough to recreate natural habitats, yet small enough to see everything on the same visit. Get up close and observe animals like the red pandas, giraffes, monkeys, sloths, and the exotic Hashibirokou, a Shoe-billed Stork. Access Chiba Zoo by exiting Dobutsukoen Sta from the Chiba Monorail.
