Why is the title of season 4 episode 10 "Welcome to Kanagawa"? I lived in the Kanagawa prefecture of Japan for several years. I don't get the connection between the title and the episode. I don't think there was ever a tornado in Kanagawa. Is there some Japanese trivia that I missed somehow? Somebody please let me know. I started watching DH in Japan several years ago. I loved it then, and still love it now, but I got lost between seasons when I returned to the USA in 2006. I get lost between reruns of old seasons and new episodes. And why do I need 10 lines to ask one simple question? Is there another way to ask this question and get an answer?
