KCP Student Colette Kinder Takes Us Around Kasai

One of KCP’s dormitories is in Kasai City, and KCP student Colette Kinder stayed there during her time in Japan. Here are just a few of her many photos of the dorm and the Kasai area. Check these out!

2desk

My Kasai dorm room desk. There is lots of storage for books and supplies. However, that didn’t stop me from keeping my desk a mess.

View from the dorm’s staircase. These roads are usually busy, but nowhere near as noisy as any city in America. Directly across the street is Mos Burger, a super delicious hamburger chain.

7washer

The washers are at the bottom, and the dryers are on top. Even if you don’t know Japanese, they are very easy to figure out. The washers are free, and the dryers are only 100 yen ($1) per 45 minutes.

A park near Kasai Station. A nice detour if you don’t feel like going home right away.

View from inside Kasai Station. It’s on the Tokyo Metro Tozai Line, so you can easily get just about anywhere in the prefecture from here without too many transfers. You are also close to Chiba prefecture, home of Tokyo Disneyland!

View from outside the station. Kasai is a great balance between rural small-town Japan, and busy Tokyo city.
