Orientation

Hackerfarm is in the inland part of Chiba’s southern tip, in the Kouzuka neighborhoood of Kamogawa city. There are a many ways to get here from Tokyo: drive directly via the Aqualine; catch a bus or train to Awa-Kamogawa station on the Pacific coast; or take the bus, train, or ferry to one of the points on the west coast of the peninsula.

Be aware that the local bus from Awa-Kamogawa station runs infrequently and ends in early evening. Calculate your route based on its timings or you may end up waiting a long time. There’s a beachside cafe, Nonkeys Cafe, which makes the wait less troublesome.
