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.

  • There is not much flow of people. Not many passengers. Can walk half old street. The architecture is beautiful. There are a lot of snacks. It is not near the agile station. About to walk through the store street for half a hour.

  • Old Street in Japan, the most well-known is the ancient clock shop street is not long, shops are not many crowds above is also ordinary to travel, the old journey is a wrong choice!

  • Have been using koedo kawagoe tickets from Ikebukuro. This ticket if route bus passengers to some extent have not come very near the shopping district in the bus, with no thought. In the middle of the street are used to car travel normally. In the pedestrian time of day seems to have. Lined with unique shops and one is fun but that car is suspect. There was a wire is ground and the scenery stand out and nice views.
