I took two paid holidays and went to Minami-Bousou - located 100 km South-east from Tokyo and Yokohama. Minami-Bousou is in the southern portion of Chiba Prefecture, near the southern tip of the Bousou Peninsula. It is surrounded by water on three sides facing the Pacific Ocean to the east and south, and the entrance to Tokyo Bay on the west. This place is famous with early spring beautiful flowers such as poppy, rape flower, and snapdragon. Driving along the sea coast was also attractive.
