Kawasaki is a city of 1.5 million people, and part of the greater Tokyo metro region. It lies on the right bank of the Tama River, and forms a narrow band between Tokyo in the northeast and Yokohama in the southwest. Options for running in Kawasaki are somewhat limited, given that it’s a densely populated, industrial city.
For a long, easy run in Kawasaki, choose a section of the many km of trails that run along the Tama River, forming sort of a linear park. There are two green areas in the city that also make for a nice run: Higashi-Takane Forest Park and the larger Ikuta Greenspace. There are additional running options just south in Yokohama, as well as in Chiba and the southern outskirts of Tokyo.
