Learn all about Sanbanze that is the sea of abundance!
Sanbanze is a dry beach off Funabashi. We have received abundance from this beach that is well-known as an excellent fishing spot.
The Funabashi Sanbanze Seaside Park overlooking Sanbanze is a resting spot for Funabashi locals. It has vast tidal flats that are home to all sorts of creatures like crabs, hermit crabs, and waterfowl.
The Funabashi Sanbanze Museum of Environment opened on July 1 on the Funabashi Sanbanze Seaside Park grounds!
