What to Expect
I will guide you around Kawagoe, Saitama. It's old traditional city full of history and culture. Mr. Dokan Ota built Kawagoe castle in 1457 in Kawagoe, and the city developed as merchants' city. There are many things to see in Kawagoe --- bell tower, kura-zukuri houses, castle, portable shrines for Kawagoe festival, Kita-in temple, 500 stone statues (Rakan, buddha apostles), Hikawa- shrine, and so on.
