When visiting Kanagawa you mustn't forget to see Hakone. Many people love the hot spring here, and a cruise of the Ashinoko or the smoking spot of volcano in Owakudani are included even in the so called "Golden route".

The prefectural capital, Yokohama, has a unique and modern culture with the likes of the Minato Mirai 21 district, China town, and the Shinyokohama Ramen Museum. The newly built Cupnoodle Museum is also gaining popularity with foreign tourists. And, in Kamakura, you can feel the traditional Japan just like if you were in Kyoto or Nara with buildings like Kotoku-in and Tsuruoka Hachimangu.

In Kanagawa, you'll be able to enjoy a good mix of nature, tradition, cultural diversity and technological advancements.
