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. Kawagoe is in Saitama Prefecture.

Where to stay in Kawagoe

You can find plenty of budget-friendly accommodation in the vicinity of Kawagoe's train station, Hon-Kawagoe, near the historic district.
