Living environment

Kawasaki has a mild climate with a low crime rate and it is a comfortable place to live.
In 1996, the Kawasaki City Representative Assembly for Foreign Residents, the first of its kind in Japan, was established by ordinance to reflect the views of foreign residents in City administration. In 2005 the City drafted Kawasaki Multicultural Symbiotic Society Promotion Plan, one of many steps it has taken to create a multicultural society of self-reliant residents living together harmoniously. Furthermore, the City is equipped with social infrastructure such that foreign residents can enjoy civic life with ease. For example, Kawasaki provides disaster prevention information in seven languages, information of health care services that offers foreign language services, and counseling services for foreigners.
