Overview

Kawagoe, which had flourished as a castle town of Edo era has become to be called ‘Coedo’ as “A town which had been flourished like Edo.” Ichibangai-area where the most buildings, which are built by Kura-zukuri in Kawagoe, are standing in a row remains a trace of Edo that now we can rarely see as “A street of Kura-zukuri”in genuine Edo (Tokyo). Elaborately designed buildings, ringing bells, side streets or back street with an elegant atmosphere, and rickshaws to go by each other. The look of stores and houses on a street to mix with the feature of 3 eras, Edo, Meiji, and Taisho. Kawagoe has a Japanese culture and history which we cannot see in the other cities. In addition, the access from the center of Tokyo is good (30 minutes). So, it is selected the golf competition place on the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020.

A refreshing walking tour of Japan

Thank you very much to Omakase Tour and Takeshi-san for a wonderful time at Kawagoe! I had fun walking around and seeing the old warehouses that was well preserved. Takeshi-san introduced me to the local delicacies like the famous long sweet potato bread, traditional Japanese confectionery, delicious long sausages, COEDO craft beer, and seasonal Sakura ice cream at a local cafe. Takeshi-san was also informative with his historical and cultural knowledge of Kawagoe and Japan. I would gladly recommend Omakase Tours for what I experienced. I recommend visiting during Sakura (Cherry Blossom) season. Contact them for a private walking tour of Kawagoe and you will experience the part of Japan you won't see around Tokyo area and you will learn about the deeper cultural background of Japan.
