About the Course – Kawagoe Old Town

Kawagoe city is located in Saitama prefecture, north of Tokyo. You can get there from central Tokyo in less than 1 hour by train. It’s a very popular sightseeing place among Tokyo locals.

The city is often called “Little Edo” after the old name of Tokyo because there are many historical buildings remained.
Old buildings for warehouses lined up in the main street “Kurazukuri Street” of the old town. You can enjoy the view of the street and shopping there.

This course suits for tourists who’d like to visit most main sightseeing spots in Kawagoe in a day. The course goes to many places, so you should start in the early morning.
