Thread: Chiba-ken

  1. #1

    Default Chiba-ken

    So far I think there's only two of us, but any current JETs have any advice or info? Looks like I'm pretty far out there in the inaka but close to the sea.

    Ini I know you are/were in Chiba so if you want to tell me how horrible it's going to be feel free, I probably won't listen.

    Tonosho-machi?? It looks like it's in the northeast corner, pretty close to the border of Ibaraki.

    Anywhere outside of Chiba city metro is inaka-ville. Enjoy the dirt! :wink:

    I dunno, I think Chiba is a pretty nice place, my friend who's a huge surfer loved going there since there's a lot of awesome surf towns up and down the coast. The Boso Peninsula is really nice too.

    Sweet! Yeah the only part of Chiba I know is the western end and I've been down south near Tateyama which was pretty nice.

    well you are both up north, lots of fat american and canadian girls up that way. Easy for the airport - fucking terrible for everywhere else. near the top end of the second biggest beach in japan http://www.99beach.com/ so you will find plenty of tokyo minge sunning themselves in the summer.

    I like the idea of "tokyo minge sunning themsleves"

    What's the JET community like? At least the possibility of seeing other gaijin occasionally?

    Split into very seperate groups

    Chiba city people - always happy to have a night out in the city but never venture outside into the filth of the inaka.

    The people around matsudo, kashiwa, funabashi - live so close to tokyo that you will never see them - ever.

    The people up north - a tight group of fat girls who travel to every event because they are in desperate need of friends.

    The people down south - bunch of queers living in the sticks who are bitter about being in chiba but still being 3 hours train ride from tokyo.

    I float above the prefecture in my crystal fortress, raining fire and brimstone down upon those who oppose me.

    oh yeah, i didn't look to see where you were til a sec ago. I hope they are good places lol. Close enough to tokyo I hope, that's all I wanted.

    Yeah, I think where we are the trains are pretty infrequent and probably stop earlier, which means if you aren't staying overnight you probably gotta head home pretty early.

    But we are actually pretty close to ibaraki, I wonder if maybe there are some bigger cities to the north?
