Hi! I'm Kenji TAMURA.

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

Why not taking a day trip to Kawagoe, wonderful city west of Tokyo, often called “Little Edo” since it still preserves the atmosphere of the ancient Tokyo (Edo is the old name of Tokyo, the capital city)? Local loop bus is available so visit Kita-in temple first, where you find old halls which are the only remaining palace building of the former Edo castle. Another interesting historical spot is the Gohyaku (five hundred) Rakan statues, more than 500 stone statues of the disciples of Buddha, each with its different own facial expression.
Visit next Kashiya Yokocho (Sweets Alley) for some snacks and desert. It is lined by stores selling traditional Japanese sweets and cakes, which gave the alley its name.
Finally take a walk around streets in Warehouse District. In the old days, Kawagoe was an important commercial town supplying resources to Edo (present Tokyo). Due to thriving trade, many merchants grew wealthy enough to build their warehouses and stores in the traditional, resistant Kurazukuri (warehouse) style. Some of the buildings managed to survive till today. You can find those warehouses along the main street, now mostly changed to modern shops and restaurants.
