Chiba, Qian Xie Shi / Chiba Shi, Japanese: [tciba]), is Japan's capital city. It is located approximately 40 km (25 miles) east of Tokyo's centre on Tokyo Bay. [1] The city became a government-designated city in 1992. It had a population of 979,768, and a density of 3,605 per km2. It covers 271.77 km2 (104.93 sq mi).

Chiba City, one of the Kanto's main seaports, is also home to Chiba Port which handles the largest volumes of cargo in Japan. Although the majority of the city is residential there are many warehouses and factories along the coast. The city has several urban centers, including Makuhari, the prime waterfront business district where Makuhari Messe is situated, and Central Chiba in which the prefectural office of government and the city hall are found.

The Chiba Urban Monorail is the longest suspended monorail in existence. Popular destinations include Kasori Shell Midden (134,000m2) (160,000 sq.yd), Inage Beach (the first artificial beach in Japan), and Chiba City Zoological Park. This park is famous for its red panda Futa.

Two kanji characters make up the name Chiba in Japanese. Qian translates to \"thousand\", while Xie translates to \"leaves\". Name first appeared as an ancient kuni no miyatsuko or regional command office as the Chiba Kuni no Miyatsuko Qian Xie Guo Zao. [2] A branch of the Taira family adopted the name and moved to the area today's Chiba City during the late Heian period. The name was adopted by the Taira branch, who became the Chiba clan. This clan remained strong in the prefecture's affairs until the Azuchi–Momoyama period. Chiba Prefecture was named \"Chiba\" at the time it was created in 1873 by Assembly of Prefectural Governors. (Di Fang Guan Hui Yi, Chiho Kankai Kaigi). This early Meiji-period body of prefectural Governors met to determine the structure of Japanese local and regional government. [3]
