The Inba area consists of the cities and towns located in the middle of the Shimousa plateau, including Yotsukaido, Sakura, Yachimata, Tomisato, Shisui, Narita, Sakae, Inzai and Shiroi. Inzai features the “gateway to Japan” Narita Airport along with large-scale residential estates such as Narita New Town in the east and Chiba New Town in the west. Not only residential areas but also inland industrial complexes are being developed year by year. Agricultural products grown in Inba such as rice, peanuts, watermelons, and asian pears are shipped across Japan. Inba also has many historical sites: the “castle town” of Sakura, the “temple town” of Narita and Sakae with several ancient tombs. Once famous nationwide as a military capital, Yotsukaido is an important historical town. With the opening of the Premium Outlet Mall, Shisui has become another up-and-coming town to watch.
