What to Expect

Visit Koedo Kawagoe, or little Edo. Kawagoe is small town that you can walk around.
You will find not only traditional Edo style houses, but also remains of Edo period, as well as Meiji, Tisho and Showa periods.
You would feel as if you slip back in time!!

We will walk the town either clockwise or anticlockwise, so that we can cover the main sightseeing spots, including Kitain Temple, Kawagoe Castle, Hikawa Shrine as well as Kurazukuri Zone where you can stroll around by visiting shops for souvenirs, Japanese sweets and Japanese traditional snacks.

So in one day, in addition to visit historical sites such as Kawagoe Castle, and Kitain Temple -where you could actually see the buildings and cultural assets from Edo period, you can also enjoy shopping and snacking while strolling at the Kurazukuri Street.

If it is too much to walk, we can also take city loop bus.

“ Best tour with Sachimi in Tokyo ”

Sachimi contact us several times prior to our arrival in Tokyo. She Incorporated all our feedbacks and customized a wonderful tour of Tokyo. We wanted to tour a few tourist attractions as well as visiting a local neighborhood and dine where locals eat. Sachimi is well versed in English and came prepared with some historical and cultural background of Tokyo before our tour. We went to Ueno Park, Asakusa, ate a delicious tempura lunch and toured old neighborhood of Yanaka. The four of us had a wonderful exposure of Tokyo! Sachimi is like a friend taking us around. Will recommend Sachimi to friends visiting Tokyo.

Sachimi:
Dear Sharon Thank you very much for your lovely review. I am so glad that you enjoyed the tour with me. It was very much enjoyable to talk and walk with you all! I believe you enjoyed whole stay in Japan. I hope to see you again in the future!! Thank you again!

“ A learning experience ”

We had a great time with Ms. Sachimi as our guide. The day prior to our appointment, she dropped off a nice reminder on our doorstep which was a comfort to us because we were assurred that she was going to show up. She showed us how to go around using the subway as well as the high speed train. That was invaluable since that enabled us to go all over Japan. We plan on having her as our guide again on our next visit.

Sachimi:
Dear Nelson-san Thank you very much for your nice review! It was pleasure to meet you. I enjoyed walking around and chatting with you. I am looking foward to meeting you and Grace-san again on your next visit! Thank you very much again.
