Living in Chiba

Chiba, known as the “city of a thousand leaves” is also the “town of flowers”. Located some 25 miles southeast of Tokyo, the sprawling urban conglomeration around Tokyo Bay was designated a city in 1992. Chiba has a diverse mix of nationalities resident within the city, thanks to information technology, commercial and business developments attracting top executives and professionals to the city. As an expatriate living in Chiba, you may well find individuals with whom to form friendships, but the InterNations website offers the opportunity to network with other expats, not only in Japan but across the world. As a registered member you may find via the InterNations online forums and discussion groups others of a similar professional standing who are willing to organize social gatherings and cultural visits to make the most of your time as an expat in Chiba.

    I am considering getting slingbox as I still pay for TV in my Hong Kong apartment. It allows you to stream your TV to anywhere after logging in.

Working in Chiba

Chiba has several urban centers within the city, including Makuhari, a prime waterfront business district, and Makuhari Shintoshin, or Makuhari New City, in which a number of multinational companies are based. Finding fellow expats working in Chiba with a common language bond for companionship is certainly possible, but being able to connect with others via the InterNations portal makes this much easier. InterNations gives you access to friendly and broad-minded expatriates from around the world who are based in the Tokyo area with easy access to Chiba, or expats in Chiba itself, with whom you can enjoy the social scene in the city. There are several Western-style restaurants and other global cuisines to sample, and a trip together to the observation lounge atop the 113 meter high Port Tower to enjoy the views could be arranged. Chiba has professional baseball and soccer teams to watch, and the artificial beach area is a popular venue in the bay itself to enjoy in the company of fellow InterNations expats in Chiba.
