What to Expect
Kawagoe, which had flourished as a castle town of Edo era has become to be called ‘Coedo’ as “A town which had been flourished like Edo.” Ichibangai-area where the most buildings, which are built by Kura-zukuri in Kawagoe, are standing in a row remains a trace of Edo that now you can rarely see as “A street of Kura-zukuri” in genuine Edo (Tokyo). Elaborately designed buildings, ringing bells, side streets or back street with an elegant atmosphere, and rickshaws to go by each other. The look of stores and houses on a street to mix with the feature of 3 eras, Edo, Meiji, and Taisho. Kawagoe has a Japanese culture and history which you cannot see in the other cities. In addition, the access from the center of Tokyo is good (30 minutes). So, it is selected the golf competition place on the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020.
