Parking Area

Umihotaru Parking Area is located at the midpoint of the Tokyo Bay Aqua Line, which connects central Tokyo and Chiba Prefecture’s Boso Peninsula. The parking area is built on a 650-meter-long artificial island. While it’s referred to as a parking area, in actuality it is much more than that – here you can enjoy a beautiful 360-degree panoramic view, delicious gourmet food made with local ingredients, and tons of shopping areas. From early evening until nighttime, the stunning sunset on the horizon and neon lights of the city shining out over the sea create lovely romantic views, making this a popular date spot.

Highlights

  • A parking area floating in the middle of Tokyo Bay.
  • Enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view.
  • Enjoy local gourmet dishes.
  • Plenty of shops.

    在海上萤火虫看到的日出让我终身难忘!在这个好像一艘航空母舰似的人工岛上,不仅可以用餐,购物,休息,更可以在“观海大回廊”,以360度的视野观海!听说这里的夕阳也非常美丽,可惜这次时间不够充足,等不到看夕阳。我想这次看日出,下次再看夕阳吧。

    除了可以停車休息外,還有餐廳、土產店,而且不只可以看到東京灣的夕陽,還可以遠眺飛機降落飛行

    興建與海上的一座人工島,可以在這邊360度欣賞東京灣景觀,也有很多的餐廳美食可以吃

    在螢火蟲休息站一眼望過去,橋樑一半佇立在海面上,另一半是海底隧道,很像是斷橋的樣子
