    Ukishima area
    4 more images

    It is not at all a real tour destination, but for an introspective appreciation of where creature comforts such as Conditioning Shampoos, Hydrogenated Margarines, and Commercial Vehicles are created and shipped, this is the place.

    There is a nice cool breeze from being so near the ocean, and Haneda Airport Runways are just a stone's throw across the river (but can't be accessed directly from here.)

    Get there from East Side Kawasaki Station Bus Station #9, the Ukishima Bus Terminal-bound bus #3 and get off at "Ukishima Bus Terminal" Bus Stop.

    Ikegami Honmonji Temple Gardens

    by RoseAmano Updated May 24, 2006

    The picture is not actually of the temples, but of a beautiful private garden attached to the temples, not available for public walking, only viewing from within a resting house.

    There are two nice restaurants (Japanese and French) to eat or to arrange a private party (salon concerts are also held regularly), and there is a professional photo studio within the premises; for the special occasion you can arrange beforehand to have outdoor photos taken with the private garden all to yourself. It's a lovely quiet respite from the bustling city life which surrounds this area.

    Great photos, virtual tours and event info. in Japanese, (and one page of religious history in English): http://www.honmonji.or.jp/

    Fondest Memory:
    Get there from East Side Kawasaki Station Bus Station #10, the Gotanda-bound bus and get off at "Honmonji-ura" Bus Stop, 10 min. walk.

    Alternatively, 10 min. walk from either Toei Asakuka Line "Nishi Magome" Station, or Tokyu Ikegami Line "Ikegami" Station.

    ...Most newcomers don't know Kawasaki city, located between Tokyo and Yokohama in Japan. In Kawasaki and near Kawasaki, there are a lot of beautiful Ume "japanese apricot" flower view you can see. This picture was taken in mid-February at "Ikegami Baien".

    Get there from East Side Kawasaki Station Bus Station #10 on the Gotanda-bound bus. Located 3-min. walk from "Honmonji-ura" Bus Stop.

    Of course, you may also ride the same bus route in reverse, i.e. Kawasaki-bound located in front of JR Yamanote Line Gotanda Station.

    Nearest Train Station is a 20-min walk from Tokyu Ikegami Line Ikegami Station

    This place is closed on Mondays (except in Feb. and Mar.). There are not many other visitors during non-flowering seasons and still nice to visit.
