    Kanagawa Pref. Kamakurashi Komachi 2-13-4
    Located along the approach to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Dankazura Kosuzu is a charming soba and warabi mochi shop with a swaying willow and looks like it could appear in a historic drama. The shop’s soba is springy and smooth. The warabi mochi starch dumplings are made with rare domestically grown bracken starch, and their chewy yet melt-in-your-mouth texture has delighted many tourists. The shop’s warabi mochi can also be brought home as a souvenir.

    I love the Warabi-mochi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warabimochi) at this place. Its great to eat in, take out, or have the sweet goodies sent to your home by Kuroneko Yamato delivery service...

Kanagawa Areas

around-area-map

Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
