GREETING FROM THE MAYOR

 Sakura is a residential suburb in the metropolitan Tokyo area. In the western parts of the city, urbanization has progressed, starting with single-family homes and apartments, and then impressive commercial development. On the other hand, the southern parts of the city are suburban agricultural areas, while also being home to one of the major inland high-tech industrial zones of Chiba Prefecture. This zone is very near the Sakura interchange for the expressway connecting Tokyo International Airport of Narita and central Tokyo.

  Sakura has been a key traffic location since olden times, and successive lords of Sakura were chosen from among the most trusted and dependable vassals of the Tokugawa government, for the defense of the eastern districts of Edo (present-day Tokyo). The former site of Sakura Castle, the present-day Sakura Castle Park, is now not only the place where the first National Museum of Japanese History was established in our country, but also offers us good spots for enjoying cherry blossom and iris flower viewing. 

   Furthermore, Sakura has produced many of the nation’s most prominent leaders, partly because of its traditional ethos of combining an eagerness for learning with an enterprising spirit.  In recent years, many gold medalist athletes and famous artists have been raised in Sakura.

   Rich history and culture, abundant natural beauty, advanced industry and convenient transportation - I am eager to introduce our town Sakura and all its advantages to people throughout Japan and around the world.

  You are always welcome to come and visit us!

Kazuo WARABI, Mayor of Sakura City

It is situated 40 kilometers from metropolitan Tokyo, 15 kilometers west of Tokyo International Airport of Narita, 20 kilometers northeast of Chiba City, the seat of the prefectural government. The northern part of the city is bounded by the vast Imba Marsh.

Sakura has a total land area of 103.69 square kilometers. Geographically, it is a plateau to the south of Imba Marsh. It has three rivers which flow into the marsh. Located at 30 meters above sea level, its water level increases southwards.

The climate is relatively temperate, with an average annual temperature of approximately 15 degrees Centigrade. Abundant natural beauty still remains around Imba Marsh and in the site of the former Sakura Castle, as well as in the agricultural area of the eastern and southern part of the city.

The Keisei Line and JR Sohbu Line run through Sakura east and west. It takes approximately 60 minutes to Tokyo and 20 minutes to Chiba City or to Tokyo International Airport of Narita. To serve residents of outlying areas, there is a local monorail called Yukari-ga-oka Line and buses plying between train stations and residential areas in the city. The Higashi Kantoh Jidoh’sha-doh (a national expressway) and Route 51 link Sakura to Tokyo and Narita in addition to Route 296 which serves as a vital community road for citizens.
