Kawagoe Walking Tour & Traditional Japanese Experience

Omiya-dori Street, Kyoto

Kawagoe is the perfect escape from Tokyo's bustling modernity: in fact, even though many foreign tourists don't know about it, Kawagoe is so rich in heritage and tradition and it deserves a full day to be visited. First, we will visit Kita Temple, a remarkable complex as it shows a two-storied pagoda, together with some parts of the old Edo Castle. Next, we will walk along Taisho Roman Yume Dori, a short yet interesting street, leading to Kawagoe's main attraction, Kura no Machi: we will walk along the beautiful warehouses before moving on to the symbol of the city, Toki no kane: a tower bell that overlooks the central part of town. From there we will move to Kashiya Yokocho, an alley where traditional candy shops are located. At the end of the tour, if you chose one of the option, you will be introduced to a rickshaw rider or a Kimono rental shop: you will be free to explore more of Kawagoe, go back to Tokyo, visit the close Sayama city or move to Omiya and catch a Shinkansen train.
