We visited Umi-hotaru (sea-firefly) as a part of a bus tour. It’s a parking service area located on the Tokyo Aqua Line. We enjoyed a great view of Tokyo Bay and the fresh sea breeze.

yes there is a bus to Kisarazu and the time schedule is posted at the bus stop. Just remember if you are going back to Kisarazu the bus stop is on the opposite side.
