Places to see
Near Shukugawara station are the Fujio F. Fujio Museum and the Kawasaki Greenery Center.
The Fujio F. Fijio museum is dedicated to the many manga and anime series created by Hiroshi Fujimoto, writing under the pen name Fujiko F. Fujio, which opened in 2011. The location for the museum was chosen when Fujiko F. Fujio's wife, Masako Fujimoto, donated 50,000 original Doraemon manga drawings to be displayed throughout Kawasaki city. In cooperation between Fujimoto's production company and Kawasaki city, and because Fujiko F. Fujio lived in Kawasaki for 35 years from 1961, the museum was decided to be built in Kawasaki. It attracts many visitors still today.
The Kawasaki Greenery Center opened in 1936, and has many different kinds of trees, plants, and flowers.
