  • Kawagoe went for the first time. It was a walk through close friends got used to the kawagoe. I bought a candy in candy shop in the nostalgic feeling of toys and sweets, overflow, a little kid again. Pretty head-fear would rejoice if sweet son souvenir place-and at home by train, but I thought pretty hard so I gave up. So have fun exploring it is also one of the places you want to visit.
