City Pride: Does Kawasaki Deserve Better? — 8 Comments

    • I have no idea what I just watched, but I think you should make a formal petition to the city. 却下されないように・・・

  1. I worked in kawasaki for a few months. It is actually a very chill and beautiful city. Many older salary men tend to live there.

  2. I work in Kawasaki and live right next to it (in Yokohama). It’s not bad, but it’s nothing special, really. I get why most people don’t pay attention to it, because why would you when you could go to Yokohama (or Tokyo, I guess)? Unless you wanted to visit the penis shrine.

    The area that I work has loads of nice, cheap places to eat though, so that’s good?

  3. This post reminded me that I still needed to check out Yofukashi, so I did and man, is it hilarious. I watched this week’s Yofukashi, though. It was mostly about 高知県 (which seems to be a hot topic this year?) and I have to admit that Murakami was a large part of the reason I wanted to watch this show, but Matsuko is really awesome too. Her entire “If I cared about my weight, do you really think I would have let it get this far?” to Murakami’s “Did you lose weight?” immediately made me respect her so much. I think I will keep watching this show.

    The only place I’ve really ever noticed going from Tokyo to Yokohama and back is Jiyugaoka. It just looks really cute, and the name is cool. (My best friend and I used to make jokes that if we ever moved to Japan we’d want to live in/on Freedom Hill)

    • This show has become one of my new favorites. It’s just filled with so much sarcasm and off beat humor that I can’t help but watch it every week. I’m assuming you’ve seen the series of the bicycle riding, lives off of his stock ownership-free goods, Kiritani-san?

  4. I just moved to Yokosuka, a bit outside of Yokohama. Being here only a month and I already regularly commit the sin of breezing past Kawasaki on my way to the seemingly more exciting wards of Tokyo. After this though my wife and I will have to go check it out.
