    More aimed at kids really, which is why I took my son there, and fairly similar really to the Tobu Museum in Tokyo.

    Takes around 20 minutes to get to from Shibuya.

    Entry is only 100 yen for adults and 50 yen for children of primary school age and above.

    Worth a look.

    Kawasaki is international city.
    So you can find various kind of restaurants.
    Especially you can enjoy Korean food.
    It is a bit far from Kawasaki st.
    You can eat real Korean food and feel the korean mood in this district.

    The One & Only Okamoto Taro

    by tigerjapan Written Dec 5, 2008

    TARO OKAMOTO MUSEUM OF ART, KAWASAKI

    This museum celebrates the art of Taro Okamoto.
    The museum is surrounded by a wonderful natural environment. It is also nearby the Japan Open-Air Folk House Outdoor Museum, Youth Nature Museum & the remains of Masukata Castle. The park that houses this unique cultural zone is very nice, so you can take a picnic or enjoy food from one of the restaurants or food stalls.
    This is a fantastic museum for Okamoto fans and a great place o be introduced to his work if you don't already know him.

  • Reflections while reading..

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While waiting have a book..

    Inside of the twin good looking building is this one..There's a big pound in the center of the lobby. There are nice chairs circling the pound. You can fancy stopping by in there and have a good book to read if you can't do anything..Well, this is what I did;-) You don't have to bring along some snacks if you're not into a tight budget as you can find caffe's and convenient stores around. At the back of the building there's a post office.

    To JR Kawasaki Station

    As I've said, spring seasons has very pretty trees if it's like this one. Unlike during Fall/autumn season, you can view the much pretty colorful leaves but this one is rather different as the trees is skeleton and in black color..It's a realy nice!

    Daddy's ofc

    The twin good looking Building is where hubby used to go to,everyday. When we see each other after his work we met usually in the train station from where this pic is taken. It's obviously not much to see in here but the Train station has alot of shopping botiques and a department store. There's restaurants,and any kind of shops that you can stroll around. In this area it has more offices and apartments..

    Spring Trees as pretty at it is

    All streets in Japan or most of it are very clean and has trees along by. During the fall/spring seasons, you can view these trees along when you're walking which is pretty to look at. As Kawasaki is a small city in Kanagawa-Ken there isn't much to see in this place or maybe I didn't know. Don't worry, when I come back I will see to it that I can fully view this cute city.

    The photo is near in Kawasaki Station going to hubbys office. And you will notice a JR train passes by.

    1 more image

    Do you know 'Daruma' in Japan?
    You can see many darumas around the Kawasaki Daishi as well as Asakusa district.
    In the remote past... AD 600. One of the Buddhism God whose name was Daruma(Bodhidharuma) borned in India. He bringed ZEN. He had continued to practice zazen for 9 years!
    Zazen means to concentrate spirit and meditate by sitting silently.
    The Daruma dolls stand for not to fall.
    If you push the doll, it 'll tumble but never fall.
    So the 'Daruma' is a symbol of lucky!
    Usually it is sold in blind at first. If you get your wish, you draw eyes on the daruma.

    Kawasaki Daishi Temple in Background
    1 more image

    Kawasaki Daishi Temple is to Kawasaki, as Asakusa is to East Tokyo.

    During New Year's Day, massive crowds of people gather to celebrate.

    Shopping stalls line the walkway, selling lots of souvenier items, such as locally made Japanese sweets, or "Daruma" dolls, upon which to obtain a blessing to reach a goal.
