With its stunning scenery, observatories, beautiful gardens, and historical religious sites, Kanagawa is a photographer’s dream.
Head up the Yokohama Landmark Tower for a bird’s-eye view of the romantic Yokohama waterfront, and the traditional Sankeien Garden nearby for its seasonal flowers. Catch a sunset with Mt Fuji in the distance by the Pacific coast at Jogashima, or opt for Chigogafuchi Marine Plateau to get up close with marine life. The Hakone Venetian Glass Museum, with Italian buildings and water features set amidst greenery, makes a great photo spot too. For temples, head to Kamakura, home of zen temples Kokokuji “Bamboo Temple” and Meigetsuin Temple “Hydrangea Temple”.
Photography is prohibited in certain areas so please check the signs at each spot.
