Japan Day 12: Kawagoe

Japan Day 11: Owakudani And Yunessun, Hakone

Kawagoe is a small town in the northwest of Tokyo.  What so special about this town is that because this town is reminisced us with an old town feeling from the Edo Period and allow us to imagine the streets from past centuries as their government retains the buildings and ambience of the past.  In its main street is lined with its old clay-walled warehouses and merchant homes (called kurazukuri), Candy Alley and Kitain Temple. 

Kawagoe is located only about 30 minutes away from Tokyo by train, therefore made them suitable for a day trip destination.
