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.
