“Nice Temple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This is a cozy temple with a great place to sit and relax looking out into the garden. They have a lot of rooms to look thorough on your way to the garden. You can take great pictures here. This place is very photogenic. It's famous for being a favorite shooting location for Japanese samurai dramas. They close at 5pm so you should get there before 4.

“it's like going back to the Edo period”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

Kawagoe is famous for its little edo town. What is great about this place is that it does not look fabricated like those theme park which is re-constructed for tourism. Kawagoe feels real with real people living and doing business there!
Kawagoe castle remains is a must go spot because it will just complete your trip back to the Edo period!!!
Go there when the weather is warm enough to wear yukata and immerse with the town!
