Have you ever heard of ” Inashiki-city “? Do you know where it is?

Inashiki-city is in the southern part of Ibaraki prefecture in Japan.

As you can see, above this area there is Lake-Kasumigaura which is the second largest lake in Japan.

This place is also very close to the NARITA airport. It takes just 40 minutes by car without using a high way.

How to access

Actually, there is no near train station in Inashiki and although it’s close to Tokyo, because there is no local train station this area is still unexplored and unknown.

The best way is to rent a car at the NRT airport or somewhere and come here!

There is the bus station in Chiba and the station is close to this area. BUT it takes 15 minutes by car.

By the way, you might be wondering why “Chiba”, not “Ibaraki”?

Some parts of this area are very close to Sawara in Chiba. So locals called this area “Chibaraki“. It means Chiba + Ibaraki.

The bus stationat “Hakkou no sato Kozaki” (in Japanese “発酵の里神崎”)

What is “Hakko”?

Hakko means “fermentation”. This is the fermentation market.
