Tateyama – beautiful castle city in southern Chiba

Stripes Japan

Tateyama is a beautiful castle city located in southern Chiba Peninsula. From Tateyama Castle, get a vantage point of the entire Tokyo Gulf with Mt. Fuji and Miura Peninsula off in the distance. Visit the castle near sunset as it faces west and offers a breathtaking photo opportunity. The city runs a free-charge shuttle van with drivers in ninja costumes that carry you up the castle mountain.
