Experience the clash of traditional and modern Japanese culture, entertainment, beauty and cuisine
Kanagawa Prefecture is located just south of Tokyo, and is the home to Yokohama, Kamakura and Hakone, three highly popular tourist destinations in the Kanto region.
Yokohama, the capital of Kanagawa Prefecture, offers plenty of opportunities to experience traditional and modern Japanese culture. It is also a very cosmopolitan port city where you can experience cuisine from throughout the world. Various events and festivals such as Chinese New Year are also held at Chinatown throughout the year.
Minato Mirai is a beautiful seaside area in central Yokohama that has many high-rise buildings, including the Landmark Tower, restaurants, shops, cafes, hotels, a convention center, an amusement park, a relaxation center with hot spring baths, museums and parks. The Sky Garden Observatory at Landmark Tower is located 273 meters above ground, and offers scenic views of Tokyo and Mt. Fuji. For art lovers, the Yokohama Museum of Art is the place to go. With seven galleries to choose from, the museum focuses on contemporary art as well as local artists.
Hakone is one of the most popular destinations among Japanese and international tourists looking to take a break from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. Hakone is arguably best known for its hot spring resorts. Located under two hours by train from Tokyo, visitors can enjoy day-trips or overnight stays at one of the many onsen ryokans (traditional Japanese inn with hot spring bath). Unlike many other Japanese hot springs, Tenzan Toji-kyo welcomes individual guests with tattoos (but not groups), making it a popular hot spring among foreign visitors. With five male baths and six female baths, visitors can hop around the different baths and traditional saunas to relieve the stress of traveling.
Kamakura is a coastal town in Kanagawa Prefecture, less than an hour south of Tokyo. Formerly the political center of Japan, today it is a popular tourist destination among local and foreign visitors. The main attraction in Kamakura is the Great Buddha, a giant bronze statue of Amida Buddha that stands on the grounds of Kotokuin Temple.
