Donít get me wrong, Iím 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.
I pretty much never drive in Tokyo/Kanto. I take trains everywhere (limo bus to/from HND).

I was commenting more about Kanagawa's virtues in general rather than its feasibility as a base for Tokyo visitors. Nonetheless, it's worked well for me as my base over many years... Kawasaki and Yokohama stations are convenient, but the best is Musashi Kosugi which has all the shopping you need and fast trains going in every which direction. It's a cinch to get to Shinjuku, Tokyo, both airports, Tachikawa, even Saitama. Far more convenient for me than Shinbashi/Shiodome which is another area I stay a lot at.
