Kawagoe

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Kanto  /  Saitama Prefecture  /  Kawagoe

Little Edo

Situated just outside of Tokyo, Kawagoe entices visitors with its historic, Edo period architecture, reminiscent of a Japan of the past. On a tour of Kawagoe, you can wander its narrow streets, lined with quaint wooden buildings, temples, and shops, and enjoy the old-world atmosphere. A variety of affordable, typical Japanese snacks, drinks, and souvenirs can be found in the many storehouses in Kawagoe, a town famous for its sweet potato dishes and desserts. A charming, antique bus line will take you on a loop from the train station, by all the historic attractions in town, and back again.
