    Located in a park in front of Yokodai Station, the entire building of this hands-on children’s museum is modeled after a spaceship.

    Kanagawa Pref. Yokohamashi Sakae-ku Tayachou 1501
    The Taya Caves belong to the Josen-ji Temple, a Shingon Buddhist temple which was founded in Japan’s Muromachi period. The caves are said to have first been opened up in the Kamakura period, and the walls are carved with images of the great monk Kukai and the principle objects of worship in pilgrimage sites throughout Shikoku, Saigoku, Bando, and Chichibu. Pay a small fee to receive a traditional “yuraisho” documenting the history of the temple and a votive candle, after which you may follow a 300 meter long path to a worship site. As you engage in quiet and solemn prayer in the caves, you will begin to feel their long history. Closest station: Ofuna Station.

    You can walk the 300 m open to public and that takes about 10 to 15 minutes and costs 400 yen - if no one's there, ring the door bell at the booth next to the small temple, Josenji 定泉寺 - you're not...

Kanagawa Main 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.
