    Umihotaru Parking Rest Area, on Aqualine Tokyo Bay

    by RoseAmano Written Jun 1, 2004

    This is probably Japan's most glorious "Parking Rest Area" as it lies right as Aqualine tunnel under Tokyo Bay ends, and becomes a bridgeway. There are restaurants, shopping centres, observation decks, but unlike most parking rest areas in this country, there is no gasoline/petrol stand.

    Definitely worth to stop and really rest, especially at sunrise or sunset. There is a strong sea breeze from being on the ocean.

    Aqualine, over Tokyo Bay

    by RoseAmano Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The Aqualine expressway, 1/2 of which is submerged under Tokyo Bay and the other 1/2 upon a bridgeway above the sea, opened with much fanfare in 1997. This links the south industrial section of Kawasaki here to Kisarazu.

    Though at first glance appearing to provide "shortcut" through the Tokyo Bay, the fanfare was muted by public criticism of the rather pricey tolls - 3,000 yen per passenger car for single crossing, or for return journey from "Umihotaru" scenic rest area with observation deck, shopping and eating.

    There is also a public bus running once or twice an hour which costs up to 1,400 yen for single complete crossing.

    Favorite thing: The Chiba plain is relatively large peninsular, low-lying with a few hills and no mountains unlike most of Japan. Many rice fields abound in this area, also Chiba-grown peanuts are known throughout Japan.

    Favorite thing: There are local fisheries here facing Tokyo Bay. In the distance can be seen Aqualine Exp. Bridge, and on a really clear day Mt. Fuji can be seen in the distance.
