-What You Can Expect-

  • Satute Gongendo Park

There are also large fields of rapeseed flowers under the embankment, which are in full bloom at this time. From late March to April every year, the cherry blossom festival (桜まつり) is also held here. More than 100 local specialty shops will sell snacks and specialties along the road.

  • Kawagoe Koedo

Kawagoe: “Travel” back to the Edo period four hundred years ago, and experience the dreamy feeling of going back in time. Kawagoe was very prosperous in the Edo period, and it was called “Little Edo”. It is not only full of Edo style, but also has Western-style buildings, Taisho romantic atmosphere and Showa-style alleys. 

Kawagoe is also one of the filming locations for the anime “Moonlight Is Beautiful”. It attracts many anime fans to come here for a “pilgrimage tour”.

  • Recommended spots in Kawagoe

– [Kurazo Ichibangai] Kawagoe was a city that flourished as the castle town of the Kawagoe Clan during the Edo period. Many historical streets and temples from the Edo period have been preserved in the urban area, full of nostalgia and especially famous for its black-brick-and-tile-made Zao houses. The whole city has been designated as a “preservation area of traditional Japanese buildings”.

– [The Bell of the Times] The landmark of Kawagoe is said to be the clock tower built by the Kawagoe feudal lord four hundred years ago, but it was destroyed several times afterwards. The current clock tower is the fourth generation clock tower. 

– [Kashiya Yokocho] In Kawagoe, there are many traditional candy shops. Feel the strong traditional style and buy the most traditional candies and snacks in Japan.

– [Most check-in shrine – Glacier Shrine] Glacier Shrine is a famous spot which is the “prime shrine” of more than 200 Hikawa shrines in Japan. According to legend, it has a history of 1,500 years. Since ancient times, it has been a holy place to seek for marriage and love. People often hold Japanese-style weddings here, and there is an endless stream of men and women who come here to make wishes every day. There is also a small tunnel in the shrine made up of wishing horses, which is also one of the must-see spots for netizens. 

  • Mitsui Outlets

Shop at Mitsui Outlet Park (Iruma). Located in the northwest of Tokyo, the outlet mall has about 210 stores and is a large-scale outlet mall owned by Mitsui.
