Discover the neighborhoods of Kawasaki
Located between Tokyo and Yokohama, Kawasaki is often a stopover for visitors going from the exciting capital of Tokyo to the unique and attractive city of Yokohama, but the small city also has its own charms.
Kawasaki Station isn’t located right in the city center, but there are plenty of hotels near the station for travelers arriving by rail. Once in Kawasaki, getting around by car or public transportation is easy to do, and as the city is also home to a lot of industrial companies, it’s a relatively quiet place full of workers and their families.
In this industrial city that sees more factories than cultural centers, there are still some places of worship that draw a lot of tourists. The most unique attraction is of course the Wakamiya Hachiman-gu Shrine, which is dedicated to fertility. The unique architecture and the yearly festival draw many visitors, especially day trippers from Tokyo. The impressive Kawasaki Daishi is also located in Kawasaki. The temple, dedicated to the famous monk Kobo Daishi, features several buildings and pagodas and a beautiful compound in which to walk among nature. The temple is among the largest in the Tokyo area, and a popular place of worship for devotees.
