But you're not ! Kawagoe is able to offer what your legitimate quest for authenticity is longing and waiting for.
It's all there, well, there's definitely way more than one simple single visit to grasp all the subtle singular spots. It's even better to get lost in one of the many tiny and curvy roads which the east side of the Kawagoe region contains and has to offer. We actually recommend you to errand with zero map except the one which takes you to the destination itself, coming from the east side of the station.
Perfect for a a little 40min by train escape from the crowded Tokyo, perfect for those who would want to spend 4 to 5 hours in a very pittoresque and much lesser known historical region of Tokyo.
At Rakutabi, we DO THIS and you will LOVE IT. Simple.
We offer a 4-5h special Kawagoe fully customized tour, please contact us for details.
