Overview

Yachiyo (八千代市) is a city sandwiched between Sakura, Funabashi, Narashino, and Chiba. It can be accessed by both the Keisei Main Line and Toyo Rapid Subway line. Its convenient location makes it easy to get to Tokyo and Narita, as well as local hotspots like Lalaport and Funabashi. Because of its location, getting to Chiba on the train can be a tad inconvenient, but it's not that far to bike! Its sister cities are Tyler, Texas, USA and Bangkok, Thailand.

Transportation

  • The Keisei Electric Railway (京成電鉄線 keisei-dentetsu-sen) runs from Ueno, stops at Chiba and Yachiyo, and goes to Narita. Not to be confused with the Shin-Keisei line, which goes from Tsudanuma to Kamagaya and Matsudo (Block 3).
  • The Toyo Rapid Railway Line (東葉高速線 toyo-kosoku-sen) runs between Nishi-Funabashi station (change to JR and Tokyo metro) and Toyo-Katsutadai (東葉勝田台駅) in Yachiyo. The name Toyo comes from Tokyo (東京) and Chiba (千葉). (From Wikipedia)

  • Buses: No idea.
