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.
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 :))
・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.
