Japanese Meteorological AgencyThe average annual temperature is 15.7℃ (maximum average temperature 19.6℃, minimum average temperature 12.3℃)[35]).

It belongs to the climate on the Pacific side. It is a prefecture with many plains and few undulations, and the average elevation in the mountains is low.

On the other hand, inland areas such as the Shimosa Plateau and the mountains (Boso Hills) are located in the coastal areas of Minamiboso and the northeast, which have a mild ocean climate.Inland climateGet closer to. In recent years, the progress of urbanization has been remarkable, and in urban areas (mainly northwestern prefectures)Heat islandThe phenomenon is occurring.

The points shown in the weather forecast, etc.Weather stationAnd the former weather station (now the special area weather station)Choshi(Northeast), Chiba (Northwest), Katsuura (Southeast),Tateyama City(Southwestern part) is a point with a strong oceanic climate, so there are quite a few points that are far from the temperature in the prefecture.

The inland region from northwest to northeast of the prefecture has a strong inland climate. In ChibaWakaba kuInland areas such as are also included. Especially,佐 倉 市,Narita City,KatoriAroundTsukubaIt is the region with the coldest weather in the prefecture to spray. The average minimum temperature in January is -1 ℃ in Narita, -2.4 ℃ in Sakura, and sometimes -2.0 ℃ to -5 ℃.

Kashiwa,Matsudo-shi,Abiko,Nagareyama,Noda-shi,Kamagaya cityIt is a densely populated area along the coast.Ichikawa City,FunabashiThe inland area of ​​the Kanan area, such as, also falls under this category.Since it is located inland, it is not easily affected by the warm air blown from the coast, so it is sometimes berthing.South coast lowAt the time of passage, it is the only place in the prefecture where snowfall is recorded by staying in the snow without changing to rain.In recent years, due to the influence of the heat island phenomenon, the coldness of winter has eased, especially in urban areas, while summers tend to be tropical nights, which is similar to the climate of central Tokyo, but the temperature is still somewhat lower.

Since the weather forecasts for the northwestern part of Chiba Prefecture are based on the weather at the former Chiba weather station, they often differ from the actual weather and temperature in the Tokatsu area.Therefore, in 2002, "Higashi Katsushika" was designated as a secondary subdivision area in the Japan Meteorological Agency forecast warning category.[Annotation 4]Was born.Amedas in the area are located in Funabashi and Abiko.

Shows the coastal area adjacent to Tokyo Bay from Urayasu City to Ichikawa City, Funabashi City, Chiba City, and Ichihara City.There is little agricultural land, and the prefecture has a high population density along with the northwestern part of the prefecture.Therefore, the climate is similar to that of the central coast of Tokyo, as it is most strongly influenced by the heat island in the prefecture, as it may be a tropical night in summer and rarely below freezing in winter.The lowest average temperature in January in Chiba City is 1 degrees Celsius, which is higher than Kamogawa 1.9 degrees Celsius and Tateyama 1.5 degrees Celsius in Minamiboso, and the third highest after Choshi 1.0 degrees Celsius and Katsuura 2.7 degrees Celsius.

  • Northeastern prefecture (KujukuriRegion, Choshi City, Mobara City, etc.)

The area facing the Pacific Ocean along Kujukurihama has a maritime climate, with mild climate throughout the year in Chiba Prefecture. EspeciallyChoshiIs the coolest in the Kanto plains, and the lowest temperature in winter is the highest in the prefecture. Therefore, summer is a summer resort, and many in winter.touristVisits. Since there is little influence of heat island, winter often becomes winter day when entering a little inland[Annotation 5].. During the winter season, when the low pressure on the south coast is passed, warm air is often involved in this area, so it is very unlikely that there will be snow. In addition, although it is generally cool in summer, the southern inland areas such as Mobara City are prone to heat even in the daytime in Japan.

The southern part is often combined with a mild climate, but in reality, it has a warm coastal area and cold inland mountains (Boso Hills), the climate is different in the outer bout (the Pacific side) and the inner bout (the Tokyo Bay side).

Since the inland mountainous areas are hilly areas with high altitudes, the difference in temperature between the year and year is large, resulting in an inland climate. In winter, at Amedas市 原 市(Ushiku) And Kimitsu City (Sakahata), the average minimum temperature in January and February is below freezing, and it often gets cold, and in high altitude mountains, heavy snow can sometimes occur.Ichihara City (Ushiku) has an inland climate and often records hot days in the prefecture.However, it is cool in the morning and evening, and there are few tropical nights.Kimitsu City (Sakahata)Kameyama LakeIt is one of the cool spots with an altitude of about 120 meters, as it is cool from the location close to.

The Sotobo coastal area is particularly warm, with little frost,MinamibosoThe southernmost part of the Kanto region is the earliest spring in the Kanto region.On the other hand, the inner bunch is not as warm as the outer bunch, and at the Tateyama Special Area Meteorological Observatory, the average minimum temperature in January is 1 ° C, which is lower than that of Chiba City, and winter days may be observed.Although it belongs to the southern part of the weather classification, Kisarazu City has almost the same climate as Chiba City.

In summer, in SotoboOnjuku Town,KatsuuraIt is cool under the influence of ocean currents and winds, and the average maximum temperature in August in Katsuura is only 8°C, and we have never recorded a hot day in the past.真 夏日Few daysSummer resortBut also.

Japanese monkeys and sika deer inhabit the southern part of the Boso Peninsula. On the other hand, bears found in other prefectures do not live[37].

Below are the major flora and fauna that live on land in Boso[38][39].

Flora and fauna of the sea/river

The terrain is surrounded on three sides by the sea, and various ecological systems have been built due to the relationship between terrain and ocean currents.

This is because you can see a red sea bream swimming in the shallow sea that does not swim in the shallow sea near the sea surface.[46].

Alien organisms

Once in KatsuuraGyokawa IslandThere is a tourist resort called, and it is said that it escaped from this facilityKyonAre breeding around Katsuura City, and it is said that there are thousands of them in the prefecture.[47].. In addition, such as Bansu tidal flat and Futtsu tidal flatSakigro tamatsu metaThe shellfish called[48].. Originally, this was a shellfish that lived only in tidal flats near the coast of China and in the Seto Inland Sea, but it is said that it was mixed in when importing clams from China and other countries. This shellfish is a native species because it preys on bivalves such as clams.TsumetagaiIt has become a natural enemy of many clams on the tidal flat[49].


Area classification

There are 37 cities, 6 districts, 16 towns, and 1 village under the prefecture. All towns in the municipality are read as "town" and villages as "mura". Regional divisions by prefectural offices are classified into 4 areas and 6 divisions according to the jurisdiction of the prefectural offices and regional promotion offices. The total population of the prefecture is 6,267,579. Population is as of June 2022, 4Estimated population.

Total fertility rateIs 1.32, which is lower than 1.42 nationwide (2014/)Tokyo metropolitan areaThis is the highest level among (1 metropolitan area and 3 prefectures).The population is rapidly increasing mainly in Funabashi City, Ichikawa City, Matsudo City, Nagareyama City, Urayasu City, Yachiyo City, and Kashiwa City, which are close to Chiba City and the 23 wards of Tokyo, while the outermost part of the Tokyo commuting area such as the eastern part of the prefecture. The number of cities, towns and villages located in is decreasing.As a result, the increase and decrease in the total population has leveled off.Chiba Prefecture has a sense of crisis about the expected population decline and aging, and is focusing on child-rearing support and securing a labor force at an early stage.[50].
