About Saitama

Saitama Prefecture is located just north of Tokyo Prefecture, and has a well developed transportation network including railways and highways, making for excellent access from neighboring prefectures and international airports.
The prefecture is blessed with a variety of sightseeing resources represented by "Little Edo" Kawagoe which retains its appearance from the Edo Era and the greenery of Chichibu and Nagatoro, as well as other food, drinks, anime, nature, industry, history, traditional culture, sports, and various experiences. In addition, international events are planned to be held all around the prefecture, including the World Bonsai Convention, Saitama City in 2017, the Rugby World Cup in 2019, and the Tokyo Olympics & Paralympics in 2020 (which will have soccer, basketball, golf, and shooting events staged in the prefecture).
