This is a one-day tour* visiting Kawagoe in Saitama, starting from your hotel in Tokyo.
(*If you can meet me at Kawagoe, pls refer to "Half-day Tour.")
It takes about 30 minutes from Ikebukuro by train. You will find out why Kawagoe is called "Little Edo" after exploring this area.
If you have experienced Tokyo sightseeing before, Kawagoe is the next place I would recommend.
What to Expect
Kawagoe is a city in Saitama, and used to be a very important place in Saitama as a trade partner of Edo. You can still see a traditional and unique atmosphere. It takes only 30 minutes from Ikebukuro by train, so if you have experienced a sightseeing in Tokyo and don’t have enough time to visit Nikko, Kamakura, or Hakone, Kawagoe is the second place that I must recommend for a day trip.
We walk a lot, so please wear comfortable shoes.
