詳細

"Kawagoe", an old castle town, nicknamed "Little Edo (the former name of Tokyo)". Why don't you visit historic sites dotting the city and enjoy the beautiful townscape, with a well-informed tour guide in this area? The city of Kawagoe is a 30-minute train ride from Tokyo. It has a lot of cultural properties and historic sites which represent the culture of the Edo era (17th – 19th century). So you can enjoy an old fashioned atmosphere in Kawagoe and it is comparable to Nikko and Kamakura. Kawagoe had a close relation with Edo as a military base for the defense of Edo and a commercial base for transportation of goods and other materials to Edo. Since the Edo castle and its surrounding area lost almost all historical properties in the devastating earthquake in 1923 and the bombing in World War Ⅱ, the cultural properties of Kawagoe have become extremely valuable to recall the culture of old Edo. Japan has many towns and cities which call themselves "Little Kyoto", but Kawagoe is one of the three cities called "Little Edo!". As transportation is convenient, a day trip from Tokyo to Kawagoe is highly recommended. Without distinction of age or sex, everyone can enjoy a wide variety of tourist attractions of Kawagoe as follows: Hikawa Shrine Kitain Temple Bell Tower (Tokino Kane) The historic street lined by storehouse merchant house (Kurazukuri) The ruins of Kawagoe Castle (Honmarugoten) Small lane of tiny candy shops (Kashiyayokocho) Kawagoe Festival Museum (Kawagoe Matsuri Kaikan) Kawagoe City Museum Kawagoe Festival (held on the third Saturday and Sunday in October) Photo Credit: http://flic.kr/p/9KGHud http://flic.kr/p/JLsTV http://flic.kr/p/9KGHFj
