It is a nice area to escape from Tokyo high rise buildings and take a breath of fresh air while taking in the beautiful sight of historic buildings. The tour was 2h long, but took a very nice pace and lovely chat with a guide discussing the history and cultural elements of Japan. It has been enjoyable tour and would definitely recommend it to others, especially first time to Japan visitors who have time to only explore Tokyo and it's nearby places.

I had a really great time! I had been to Saitama before several times, but never took the time to checkout Kawago, so naturally I had no idea what the place had to offer. I was pleasantly surprised. Our small group of individuals from around the world was an enlightening experience. Our guide was excellent! Her English was very good and she even had a booklet with her of pictures and English to help you to follow along. I got to see some rare and unique Sake which was honestly some of the best Sake I have ever had. I got to learn about the rich history and traditions at a local shrine. I have been to several shrines, but never have I washed my money as offering to double my money. The old buildings that have survived for hundreds of years and are still being used on Ichibangai Street are a site to see, especially when you get to see the Toki no kane Bell Tower! It is a perfect backdrop to the old town city streets. I got some great pictures of it! They even have a Starbucks that has been made to fit the old aesthetics of the town. I got to see many back streets and got a feel for how they laid out the city back in the day. I was treated at the end with a treat of some traditional handmade candy on the Kashiya Yokocho or "Penny Candy Alley". My only complaint is that the day we had the tour it was extremely hot and I mean hot. But that's not really the tour's fault. It just happened to be the weather on that particular day. All in all, I would say it was a great experience! If I had not come across this tour I never would have known how much this town had to offer!

I had a great time visiting Kawagoe with those very nice, funny and kind guides ! It was the opportunity to learn more about architecture, history and traditions in Japan. Kawagoe is a beautiful place and I learn a lot of fun and interesting facts during the tour. We even had the opportunity of tasting both food and alcohol !
Thank you for everything !

Kawagoe is a magical place... the tour was really nice... we got a better understanding of Japanese culture... luckily we were 2 curious foreigners with 4 guides, so we got to ask a lot of questions, and they were truly patient in answering all of our inquiries... we were also lucky in that there were many people dressed in Kimonos and the streets were beautifully decorated... since Kawagoe is a small city I would recommend visiting it during a festival or during Hanami where the city is truly picturesque =)

I have never visited Kawagoe before. There has so many interesting things and histories. Our tour guides are very patient and friendly. They explain professionally about the history, culture as well as even souvenir and foods. Even though there is only 2-hour trip, I am very enjoying about this tour plan. Thank you! Thank you!
