Overview

Kawagoe will give you wonderful experience of the traditional Japan which you can't see in Tokyo. Only about one-hour ride from Shinjuku ! The old storehouse merchant houses are lined up, and the Toki-no-Kane (Bell Tower), a symbol of Kawagoe, welcomes you to ring four times a day. Let’s take a stroll around the town and you'll feel as if you travelled through time to ancient Edo.

What to Expect

Why not visit the temples and learn about historical heritage, fill up on Japanese food and snacks, especially barbecued eel bowl, sweet potato cuisine and sweets, Dango at authentic Japanese shops and restaurants, and enjoy the tastes of Little Edo?

I have lived in Tokyo for a long time, and I like Tokyo and really enjoy the life of Tokyo.

I love eating, shopping and cooking, so Tokyo is one of most exciting places in Japan for me!! I think, not only for me and Japanese people, but also foreign tourists.
I want to give you unforgettable memories in Japan. My top priority is to help you discover, enjoy, experience and feel Japanese culture, gourmet and life with the heart of Japanese hospitality.

I’m interested in cross-cultural exchange. Let’s talk a lot about anything you want to know and try to do in Japan.

I’m looking forward to seeing you the tour. read more
