Kawagoe Ichibangai Shopping Street, Kawagoe

4.0
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.

  • You struck by the antiquity of the houses, typical of Edo time time the name of Tokyo, many handicrafts, temples and small restaurants or food stalls, I recommend a puestito where we did 20 minutes of tail to eat some crunchy and striking sweet potatoes in travel is long, more than one hour, combining train and underground.

  • Confectionery Alley is good, but still here! I like sweet potatoes! (^^)! Potato jelly and potato crackers on top... IMO taro! Are ball-shaped and baked. Tasting, so try to eat. Will probably buy. It is highly recommended.
