The Best 10 things to do in Edo Kawagoe Japan

 

Story

Kawagoe City is called Little Edo because the cityscape and culture of the Edo period still remains there today. The Toki no Kane marks the passage of time in Kawagoe from the Edo period (1603-1868), the Kitain Temple that is the only thing remaining from the Edo Castle, the Kawagoe Festival that has a history of over 370 years, and the streets, food, and culture are all things that you can only experience in Kawagoe. It is also easy to access from Tokyo since it is only 30 minutes from Ikebukuro Station and 50 minutes from Shinjuku Station.
