But you drive. And I’m pretty sure that plays a big part in how you view Kawasaki/Kanagawa and how you and your family make the most of it.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m very fond of Kanagawa, but my view is that it is easier as somewhere to get to than as a base for anyone dependent on public transport.
