Living in Kanagawa

Kanagawa Prefecture is located to the south of Tokyo, in the Kanto region of Honshu. It connects almost seamlessly with the Tokyo Metropolitan Area with many of its public transportation services feeding to and from central Tokyo. Its capital, Yokohama City, is the 2nd largest city in Japan, and has a long history of being a famous port city of Japan. Yokohama's Chinatown is not only the largest Chinatown in Japan and Asia, but it is one of the largest in the world, with nearly 3,000 Chinese immigrants residing within. A US Naval Base is located near Yokosuka, further increasing the foreign population of the prefecture. Many popular tourist attractions are located in Kanagawa, including beautiful Kamakura City, and Hakone's resorts and outlet malls.
