It houses the Seaside Plaza which exhibits large tanks of local fish, an observation deck that provides a splendid view of Tateyama Bay, a museum that introduces the maritime folk culture of the area, as well as Sakana-kun Gallery, a cruise ship terminal, a restaurant, a farmer’s market and more.

Observation Deck

From the upper deck, visitors have a panoramic view of Tateyama Bay and the city of Tateyama, including the castle on Shiroyama Hill. Above all, you don’t want to miss the sunset view, which Tateyama Bay is well known for. In mid May and mid July, it’s posibble to see Diamond Fuji, the moment when the sun sets behind the peak of Mt. Fuji.

Tateyama Sunset Pier

Completed in April 2010, this 500 metre long pier is home to cruise ships, high-speed jet boats, and glass-bottom pleasure boats.

Blue Flame

Located in the middle of the pier, the Blue Flame sculpture is a symbol of the “umihotaru”, a tiny sea creature found in Tateyama Bay that emits a blue light when they mate. This is one of the three Lovers’ Spots in Tateyama.

Nanso Satomi Festivel now has become an autumn tradition in Tateyama. It is the event that recreates the world of the civil war lord Satomi clan, with motives from a fantasy novel “Nanso Satomi Hakkenden” written in the Edo Period. Warriors in traditional armors, princesses and maids in costumes are all chosen from public, and total 200 go on parade with 24 portable shrines and floats. At Hojo beach, demonstrations on traditional battle scenes are performed. Wild and energetic gathering of the portable shrines and floats and the fantastic collaboration of lantern lights and fireworks display at night can be seen nowhere else but in Tateyama.

DatesOctober, 2019



Yawata Shrine in Tateyama City has a 1,000 years of history, and its annual festival is the largest in the area. It was designated as Chiba Prefecture Intangible Cultural Asset in 2004. In the middle of September, food stands line up along the street, bustled with visitors from all over the prefecture. Eleven portable shrines pay a once-a-year visit to this main shrine of the area, and the revelers roll and lift their mikoshi with shouts, showing off how sturdy they can be. Five neighboring communities also participate with their gorgeous floats.

DatesSeptember, 2019



Taking place in the calm of Tateyama Bay and within the Tateyama Self Defense Force Base, the race attracts beginners as well as experienced athletes.

fireworks and flamenco

On the evening of the Tateyama Fireworks Display, 10,000 fireworks color the night sky for over 75 minutes.

The highlight is the “Water fireworks”, which explode in the water and create a semicircular flower of fire with a diameter of 250 meters over Tateyama Bay. On the shore, a special stage is set for college students to perform flamenco dances against a backdrop of fireworks. This night truly represents the summer of Tateyama.

DatesAugust 8, 7:30pm - 8:45pm
