Kawasaki

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Kanto  /  Kanagawa Prefecture  /  Kawasaki
(3.8/5 based on 2,400+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: museums, shopping, historic sites
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. Make your own Kawasaki vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Japan tourist route planner.
