Nature itself is a theme park. 
Let's go on a trip with your children!

There is a lot of nature in Chiba prefecture. When you want to go somewhere, as this book's title shows it is hard to decide where to go, either to the seaside or to the mountain because both are located not so far.
You can learn a lot from the unique landform and the historical heritage.
You'll never know how much you can learn until you jump in. 
It is also easy to take a day trip. Even though how busy you are, even if you are a single mother or a parent with regular jobs, a day trip makes your work easy. In addition, each destination is not so far from a station.
Children are brought up in various circumstances but every child must have an opportunity to notice and learn wonder of nature by contacting with it.
There are so many opportunities for children to learn something.
Those grownups who have been active in many fields might have gotten some inspiration from nature.
I hope every parent reads this book "UMI iko YAMA iko" and gets some little information about our local area.
I also want you to talk about what you get with your children during some hiking. Letユs see how they get interested. When they want to look up something in a library or a museum, they'll know the joy and fun at learning. I would like you to go hiking and to have Bento-box lunch with your children. Please deepen the ties of your family.

Let's take a hike in Chiba with your family.
