What we will do

A perfect half-day trip from Tokyo!

Kawagoe is a town in Saitama prefecture, 40 min away from central Tokyo. It is called 'Little Edo', because the town has the ambience of 17th-19th century Tokyo.

I will show you the charm of Kawagoe town - old and new.

We will stroll around the streets where you can feel atmosphere of Edo period, stopping at several instagram-perfect local spots.

Then I will show you the modern side of Kawagoe, where local people hang around.

We will also stop in one of my favorite Izakaya at the end of the tour.

I love Kawagoe because it's compact, yet has lots of attractions. If you are a bit tired of the high energy of bustling Tokyo, I recommend you a visit :)

Hi! I am Kewpie :)

I have lived all my life in Saitama, the prefecture next to Tokyo. Some people may say that there is nothing exciting about it, but it is not true! I would love to show the attraction of a suburban town. It is also your chance to see everyday real life.

I am a graphic artist by profession, and I love drawing and painting.

Hi!我是Kewpie :)

我住在埼玉县,是东京旁边的一个小县城。很多日本人常常嘲笑埼玉县毫无亮点,但他们说得并不是事实!我想给来自世界的游客展示我们郊区的风采。你可以随着我看到日本人平凡的日常生活。

我是一名专业的插画师。我热爱艺术,美食和Funk音乐。

Where we will meet

Honkawagoe Station on Seibu Shinjuku Line

What I will provide

・A guide in Kawagoe

・One drink at Izakaya

What to bring

Nothing special, but I recommend to bring some cash if you want to buy something, as not all shops accept credit cards.

Bring a camera (or your smartphone :))

Notes

・We will walk a lot, so please come in comfortable shoes.

・Children are welcome. If they are over 13, please count in for number of people to book. Under 13 is free :) Please do let me know if you are bringing children.

It was really nice to explore the small town, away from the hustle and bustle of central Tokyo, yet it was pretty close to the city (only 1 hour away!). Loved the streets with little shops, and felt more local.

For my first time booking this kind of activity, this actually sets a benchmark. Yuko was amazing! We had a great conversation and she made every effort to make my tour unforgettable and gave many tips and knowledge as a local. Since its my second time around in Tokyo, I wanted to have more local experience. I will definitely do it again the second time around. Thank you very much Yuko.
