Kawagoe Ichibangai Shopping Street, Kawagoe
(3.9/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Take a walk down Kawagoe Ichibangai Shopping Street, a commercial and touristic street lined with traditional Japanese storehouse architecture. After destruction by a fire in 1893, the city's wealthy merchants rebuilt the street using the fireproof design of storehouses, with tiled roofs and a separation between living areas and storage rooms. Stop by the many quaint shops selling locally made treats, souvenirs, and trinkets, and take a break at one of the restaurants for a bowl of ramen and some tempura.

  • Had a holiday for school children, so Monday went to the tourist, but it was crowded with many people. Because it was the first time, saw little to homework. Oh please! and free parking next to the shugo Chara River Yue became a rental bike sharing location there, so opted for transportation with a bike. One day is cheap at 200 yen. Temple located near the warehouse and as a starting point there attentiveness fun. Collection as well as tourists, and people are living normally, tourist buses and living vehicles through there, so were crowded in the afternoon. Even though a lot of people coming and going, but garbage, could walk comfortably in a beautiful town. Broadening the range thanks to the bike was made tourism and children rode bicycles, fun said. Waiting for someone, or just not put the bike sharing location and walk either, so timing was important.
