Kanagawa

About Kanagawa

Many westerners might consider it strange to be butt-naked with a bunch of strangers, but Onsen (hot spring bath) plays a key part in Japanese Culture. Just don’t make eye contact.

Kanagawa is a dynamic part of the greater Tokyo area. The capital city, Yokohama, features the famous Chinatown district and endless entertainment options.
