Kaihin Makuhari Model Course

The Makuhari New City area is located a convenient 40 minute car ride away from both Narita and Haneda airports. The modern town with its rows of skyscrapers is filled with shops and other places where foreign visitors with families can relax and enjoy themselves. Funabashi has the oldest and biggest Shinto shrine in this area as well as a leisure facility that has been featured on the global travel site “TripAdvisor”. In Urayasu you can see a streetscape that recalls the history of the city’s once flourishing fishing industry. Why not come to this area, where the old mixes together with the new, and discover a different side of Japan?
