Chōshi (銚子) is a city in Chiba Prefecture.
Limited express Shiosai (しおさい) trains from Tōkyō on the Sōbu Main Line cost ¥3,510 for an unreserved seat or ¥3,820 for a reserved seat, and take about 1 hr 40 min for the whole trip. The last Shiosai leaving Chōshi at 6:40PM does not stop at Tōkyō Station, but terminates in Shinjuku at 8:42PM. Missing this will require taking several local trains, most likely transferring at Chiba. The entire trip by local train costs ¥2,210, but takes about 2½ hours.
All services mentioned above are fully covered by the Japan Rail Pass and the JR East Pass.
