Overview of Kanagawa
“Industry and nature together.”
Kanagawa prefecture is packed with suburban landscapes, natural parks, industrial areas, beaches and historical towns. Yokohama has the most population among all the cities in Japan, which is home to the largest Chinatown in Japan and Minato Mirai 21 complex (seaside urban area that serves as the central business district). Kamakura is a historical town where the capital of Japan existed from 1192 to 1333, and we can see architectures remaining from that period such as Kawasaki Daishi (a large Buddhist temple) and Kamakura Daibutsu (an enormous bronze status of Buddha in the grounds of the Kotokuin temple).
