Unlike usual, I found it complicated when the name of the prefecture and the name of the prefectural capital are the same. I had intended to go to the Chiba Prefectural Museum of Art, but as soon as I got distracted, I lost track of whether I was going to the Chiba City Museum of Art or the Chiba Prefectural Museum of Art. The Chiba Prefectural Museum of Art and the Chiba City Museum of Art are within walking distance of each other, but they are not that close to each other. For someone like me who is not familiar with the geography of Chiba City, it was a matter of utmost importance which way to go.
Normally, I think it is inconvenient to have the prefectural government name and the prefecture name different because it makes it difficult to quickly identify the prefectural capital, but in this situation, it would have been more convenient to have the prefectural government name different. In this situation, it would have been more convenient if they were in different prefectures. Or, if the Chiba Prefectural Museum of Art and the Chiba City Museum of Art were located in the same place, people like me who have lost track of which museum it is could feel comfortable visiting them. But it would not be that easy. I got off at Chiba Minato Station, the closest station to the Chiba Prefectural Museum of Art, and while looking for directions to the museum, I thought about it.
