Kawasaki

3.8
Easily accessible via a 15-minute train ride from Tokyo, Kawasaki features a modern, industrialized waterfront, as well as a couple of quirky attractions. You can easily tour Kawasaki on foot, and with a little help from the quaint train line that meanders through the narrow residential streets. A park with an open-air museum and a large Buddhist temple rank among the top attractions in Kawasaki, but the city also boasts some eclectic sights, such as a miniscule escalator, or the famous fertility shrine known for its iron phallic statue and erotic art museum. The city comes to life on the first Sunday of April during the lively Iron Penis Festival--a great occasion to people-watch, enjoy the chaotic parade atmosphere, and stock up on fertility amulets or genital-shaped souvenirs. Kawasaki is in Kanagawa Prefecture. Plan your vacation with our Japan trip planner and discover the best things to do in Kawasaki.
