Chiba Floral Museum

Chiba Floral Museum
Chiba City is also known as the City of Flowers. The city holds flowers festival and gardening contest every year. There are lots of flower related places around Chiba, one of them is the Chiba Floral Museum ( 花の美術館 ). I visited the museum just before I moved to Tokyo from Chiba.


Chiba Floral Museum
A little bit history about this museum. For the 59 days between August 25th, 1995 and October 22nd, 1995, an event to promote city beautification and the preservation of nature, titled “Green Symphony CHIBA ‘95” was held in Inage and Makuhari. The original structure of the Chiba City Floral Museum was built at this time, as a themed exhibit for the Inage location of the fair. Upon the event’s completion, Chiba City decided to rebuild the museum as a permanent city facility. The building officially reopened to the public as the Chiba City Floral Museum on April 2nd, 1996.

If you enter your birthday in one of the computers, it will give you your birthday flower, a description of your personality, and your fortune. You can also print it on a postcard for 100 yen.
