Welcome to the heart of Gunma! Chubu is the second most populated district of Gunma (next to Seibu) and is home to both the capital city of Maebashi and the “Belly Button of Japan”, Shibukawa. Chubu has a little bit of something for everyone, whether ye be a hungry traveler, hiker, or history buff. Wherever you find yourself in Chubu, Akagi-yama is never far. Beware the kara-kaze!
