Chiba City Monorail

by Eddy

The Chiba City Monorail is one of the most remarkable suspended monorails in the world.  The view from the windows make you feel like you're flying over the ground.

■Features of the Monorail

In March 1999, the monorail was registered in the Guinness Book of World Records as having the longest running distance (15.2 km) of any suspended monorail.

It runs at an elevated height of 30 meters above ground level, so you can see a full view of the city from inside the passenger cars.

The Chiba City Monorail has two lines.  Line 1 runs between Chibaminato(Chiba port) and Kenchomae ( In front of Government Office).  Line 2 runs between Chibaminato and Chishirodai. It is convenient transportation for shopping and a short trip.

Example of the fare:  Chibaminato to Chiba : 200 yen(adult),  100 yen (children)

Hello. My name is Eiichi and my nick name is Eddy. So, please call me Eddy because Eiichi is difficult for visitors to pronounce.
I am a licensed guide interpreter certified by Japanese government.

I was born and live in Chiba prefecture, which is next to Tokyo and I have worked in Tokyo for more than 20 years. So, I know Chiba and Tokyo very well. My hobby is ceramic art, golf, and Zen meditation, and I like traveling and reading history books. Based on these experience and knowledge, I will introduce Japanese culture and history.

I used to work as an engineer for one of major electronic manufacturers which exports communication systems and components to overseas. Through the job, I visited many countries including New Zealand where I fortunately stayed for four years with my family. I have found it fun to communicate with people in other countries. So, after my recent retirement, I started to work as a licensed guide interpreter.

I’m looking forward to meeting visitors who are interested in Japanese beautiful nature, unique culture, variety of foods or history.
