Overview

The town is often called 'Ko-edo', or little Edo. Amazing! It's not little Tokyo but Edo. There are a commercial district and a feudal load's palace from the 19th century. There is a noble temple called 'Kitain' from the 9th century. Lots of old cherry trees are still remained that we've lost in Tokyo. It's less than one hour train ride from Tokyo. Please enjoy the atmosphere from Edo era.

What to Expect

Cherry blossoms in Kawagoe starts little earlier than Tokyo because the species belonging is different. Blanches of cherry trees hang down and full broom cherry blossoms look like water fall. Although spring is the best season to enjoy Kawagoe, there are many enjoyable places to see in other seasons. Kashiya-yokocho is crowded by the people getting candy. Commercial district has good old atmosphere. It takes less than one hour from Shibuya, Shinjuku or Ikebukuro.
