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 decision to go with Sachimi in Tokyo! ”

As a family of four with two younger teenagers, we had the benefit of having Sachimi as our guide in Tokyo for two days. It was the kids’ first trip to Japan, and we were pleased that Sachimi was able to custom tailor the itineraries to include everyone’s interests; samurai history/demonstration, traditional tea ceremony, Tsujuki fish market, Meiji shrine, Harakuju, delicious udon lunch, and much more. Sachimi was very well-versed in the subway and train system and helped us learn how to manage it. Prior to our arrival her communication with us was excellent and responsive and she planned our days efficiently, so we were able to maximize the short two days. It rained the first day and fortunately Sachimi planned accordingly changing things around, overall was very considerste of our needs. Sachimi has a very pleasant and sweer manner with very good English. She was easygoing with our children, even creating a quiz game with origami paper prizes that they were delighted with even as young teenagers. We enjoyed getting to know Tokyo and Sachimi. Very highly recommend Sachimi!

“ Best tour guide ever ”

Sachimi is the best tour guide we ever had. She planned a 1/2 tour of Tokyo for my wife and myself meticulously. Spot on time she picked us up at our hotel and not only was a very knowledgeable Tokyo tourguide, but also helped us to rent bikes (bike sharing) as well as making JR reservations. Unfortunately we only had 1/2 a day to spend with Sachimi and would have loved to have more time with her. Her English is immaculate and everyone who has the pleasure of having a tour with Sachimi will for sure be as pleased as we are. Thanks a lot Sachimi for your outstanding tour!
