From the Kashiwa, Matsudo, and Abiko areas of Chiba, the area has become one of the most accessible areas to Tokyo and has a large number of trains.
Considering the traffic congestion in the surrounding areas, it is the best area to use the train.
The Kashiwa, Matsudo, and Abiko areas of Chiba are directly connected to Ueno Station by the Joban Line.
Therefore, if you are heading from Tokyo, it is relatively easy to access the area by train if you consider Ueno as your base.
There are a number of hotels, mainly business hotels, at the major stations in each area.
However, there are not that many, so it is better to choose an area based on convenience after considering the balance between Tokyo and price.
