Things to do in Kanagawa
Welcome to Kanagawa
To experience the best of Japan from cityscapes to natural scenery, and museums to temples, there’s no better place than Kanagawa. Yokohama, located just 45 minutes from Tokyo, with its iconic Minato Mirai 21 district, bustling Chinatown and beautiful landscaped Sankeien Garden is a great place to check out for city lovers.
For those seeking the touch of nature, head to Hakone for Mt Fuji and the Fuji Five Lakes where you can also soak in a traditional onsen in many of the ryokans there. If you are more of a beach person, Kanagawa has many islands from Enoshima to Jogashima and Sarushima to offer.
As a fan of pop culture, don’t miss out on the ‘Doraemon’ Fujiko F Fujio Museum and the Cup Noodles Museum. Other museums worth checking out include the Little Prince Museum and the Japan Open Air Folk House Museum.
For travelers keen on visiting temples, Kamakura is great with its Great Buddha at Kotokuin, and Hasedera with its 11-headed wooden Kannon statue and sea views among many other historical temples.
