Travel Tips & Information
Here is the basic information about Kanagawa as a reference for planning your trip.
It has become a famous tourist spot not only in Kanagawa Prefecture but also in Japan, and depending on the season, the area can be very crowded by car. Also, the cost of parking can be very expensive in some places, so it is better to use public transportation such as trains in this area.
In Shonan, there are many lodging facilities like guest houses, but there are also high-class hotels such as Prince Hotel and Park Hotel.
Business hotels can be found around Fujisawa Station, so you can use this area for different purposes.
The Shonan-Kamakura-Fujisawa-Hiratsuka area is one of the best sightseeing areas in Kanagawa Prefecture.
If you take the Enoshima Electric Railway from Fujisawa Station to Kamakura Station, you can see the sea of Shonan, visit Enoshima, and go to Kamakura. In Kamakura, you can walk to Daibutsu (Great Buddha), Hase Temple, Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, etc. from the nearest station.
One of the best things to eat in Kanagawa Prefecture is house ramen, with the Yoshimura family being the original. The meat buns in Chinatown are also a must. Don't forget to try the siumai lunchboxes at Sakiyoken.
Since Shonan and Kamakura are tourist spots, there are more stores, but be prepared for the prices to be a little higher.
Since Fujisawa and Hiratsuka stations are used by many business people and residents, there are many choices of restaurants around these stations, including fast food restaurants where you can easily go alone.
