(1) PaLuLu Plaza Chiba: Cultural Complex in Chiba city
The Palulu Plaza Chiba is a facility for supporting local cultural activities. It is just three or four minutes' walk from the east exit of Chiba station. Based on a questionnaire distributed to citizens (700 citizens of Chiba aged 18 or older, sampled at random) and a hearing with the local government, it was decided that the facility should have an exclusive hall for music (719 seats), health improvement facilities (including a pool and machine-equipped gym), an information corner about the City of Chiba, and a number of conference rooms.
