Saitama

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Kanto  /  Saitama Prefecture  /  Saitama
Though a fairly large city in its own right, Saitama has become known primarily for its proximity to the capital, Tokyo. Just a half hour away from the giant metropolis by train, a large proportion of the city's population commute to work in the capital each day. Saitama attractions remain fairly minimal, especially when compared to what lies within easy reach. Still, the city possesses a couple of pleasant parks, well-maintained and housing some of the city's main museums, music and theater venues, and academic institutions. With our world travel planner, Japan vacations can be built around trips to Saitama and other destinations in Japan.

Where to stay in Saitama

Not truly an established tourist destination, the accommodations of Saitama remain rather one-tone. Close to the main train stations that are such a key feature of the city, because of their connections with Tokyo, you'll find the majority of accommodations here, primarily coming in the form of business-style hotels. Modern, fairly ordinary, and with pools and restaurants as standard, they offer a decent place to bed down for the night. The depth and variety of Tokyo's accommodations lie just a half-hour train journey to the south.
