Kawagoe Ichibangai Shopping Street, Kawagoe

(3.9/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • 這裡離東京非常近~從池袋搭(東武鐵道的東武東上線到川越)不需要換車。到達川越市只需要30分鐘左右的車程。 再搭公車就可以到一番商店街。 商店街兩旁的屋子非常有特色。 而且我們前來的時間剛好是正值日本新年前夕。所以街道非常熱鬧。 除了觀光客以外非常多在地的日本人前來購買年貨商品。 而且商店街內的商品蠻多傳統工藝的店家。 例如販賣各種手工刀刃的店家。商品種類多樣簡直是一個小型博物館。 也有做工精細的Y...  more »
