Overview

Kamogawa City (鴨川市; -shi) is a city in southern Chiba Prefecture near Otaki, Katsuura (Block 7), Kimitsu, Futtsu, Kyonan, and Minamiboso (Block 8). It is located about 80 kilometers from the doorway to Japan, Narita International Airport, and approximately 70 kilometers from the capital of Japan, Tokyo.

Kamogawa is home to Kamogawa Sea World. Among other things, look forward to the talking Beluga (big white whale but known as the 'white dolphin'), the Killer whale show, funny sea lions and synchronized swimming dolphins. Plenty of parking in a number of parking lots nearby. Parking attendants can advise you as to where to park. Fantastic gift shop too. Buy the dolphin spoon, very cute.
