Makuhari (幕張?) is a community in Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture, Japan. It is within Hanamigawa-ku and Mihama-ku.[citation needed]

It was reclaimed from the sea. The district was constructed in a span of 10 years. Steven Poole, author of Trigger Happy, described it as "Japan's own vision of the future now".[1] Poole added that is a "shrine to techno-optimism" that "looks just like a city out of a video game".[1]
