Why Kawasaki is special ?

Sandwiched between Tokyo and Yokohama, Kawasaki is a large coastal city in Kanagawa Prefecture that stretches along the Tamagawa River. Kawasaki's city center lies near the heavily industrialized waterfront; however, the city becomes more and more suburban as you head further inland.


While not a major tourist destination, there are a few attractions found around the city, and several museums such as the Nihon Minkaen open-air museum and Fujiko F. Fujio Museum further out in the suburbs. This make Kawasaki a unique side trip, including a Buddhist temple that ranks as one of Japan's top three most visited temples during the New Year, a Shinto fertility shrine that hosts one of Japan's wackiest festivals, and an underrated open-air museum.
