Kawasaki Daishi Temple

Sandwiched between Tokyo and Yokohama, Kawasaki is a large coastal city in Kanagawa Prefecture that stretches along the Tamagawa River. Kawasaki's city center lies near the heavily industrialized waterfront; however, the city becomes more and more suburban as you head further inland.

While not a major tourist destination, there are a few attractions found around the city including the Kawasaki Daishi temple in the city center, and several museums such as the Nihon Minkaen open-air museum and Fujiko F. Fujio Museum further out in the suburbs.
