Surrounding Environment

Facing the ocean, Funabashi`s Seaside Park, called Sanbanze, is home to tideland which is famous for migratory birds. Also, one can collect seashells in the fall, go swimming in the summer and enjoy Funabashi`s great view of Mt. Fuji. Every summer, a firework festival is held in Funabashi`s Harbor Park.
