Want to avoid crowds at the Makuhari Beach Park in Chiba? Head out to Inage Seaside Park, a couple of kilometers from the previous location with a beautiful beach side pool, a flower museum, a barbeque spot and an awesome beach to do beach-combing activities.
If you are into collecting sea shells and enjoying some do-it-yourself activity with them, Inage Seaside Park is a perfect location close by Tokyo, with beautiful views of the city skyline. I always collect sea shells at every city I have traveled to across the globe (provided it has a coastline), and I use nature's canvas to do some fun activity like shell painting.
Visit early in the mornings if you want to collect sea shells or you come on a visit in the evening for a beautiful sunset view. Abundant and reasonably priced parking spaces are available. With all the needful amenities for a family outing, the park is a great outdoor day-long activity destination.
The park is also a popular point to view the Makuhari fireworks, although it gets quite packed on the day of the fireworks in summer.
