Kawagoe, called Little Edo, was a merchant town that is now home to a wealth of architecture and designs. One of the symbolic structures in Kawagoe is the tall Clock Bell Tower (Toki-no Kane) that dates back over 400 years. We will enjoy strolling around the town steeped in the tradition of Edo, such as fire proof Storehouses that are still beautifully preserved in the town center

Tour Important Information

The Edo period, when samurai governed the country, enjoyed a long time peace over 260 years until late 19th century.

Kawagoe, called Little Edo, was a merchant town that is now home to a wealth of architecture and designs. One of the symbolic structures in Kawagoe is the tall Clock Bell Tower (Toki-no Kane) that dates back over 400 years. You will enjoy strolling around the town steeped in the tradition of Edo, such as fire proof Storehouses that are still beautifully preserved in the town center.

Other attractions are Kawagoe Castle which has remained for a long time since late in the Edo period, and historical temples and shrines including Kita-in Temple that was originated in 830. The third Tokugawa Shogun, Iemitsu was born there. There is also a prestigious Hikawa Shrine.

You can surely enhance deep insights into the old history and culture of Kawagoe.

Great tour with a great guide!

Masaharu was a top notch tour guide for our day together in Tokyo. He knew the best spots and background of each site, including Tsukiji, Asakusa and much more. Our day was extremely hot and humid and he was very accommodating for our group, giving us time to rest and cool off when needed while still getting us to and from our multiple stops. You can't find a better guide. Thank you Masa!

Jonathan H.

Dear Jonathan, Thank you for your nice review and heart-warming words. It was my great pleasure sharing such a lovely time with you and your wonderful family around Tokyo. I also enjoyed learning a lot about your amazing way of life in US. I hope you will further have fun touring around Tokyo for the rest of days and bring good memories back home. Wishing you and your family all the best!

Excellent Guide

Thank you so much Masa-San for 2 wonderful days in Japan! Our family of 7 had great memories to visit Hakone and Tokyo the first time. We even learn and enjoy to navigate Metro and train in Tokyo. Masa-San help us to organize the trip 2 months before our visit. He is very dedicated to make sure all of my 5 children have a good time and enjoy best food in Japan. I highly recommend Masa-San and his tour. His English is excellent. Thank you very much. Tuyet Nguyen.

I had one day in Tokyo, and best thing I did was to hire Masa to take me around. Don't bother to try to do this by yourself.

Visit to Bonsai Village in Saitamacover image

Visit to Bonsai Village in Saitama

Saitama
3 hours 30 min

As I am living in a walk distance from Bonsai Village, I can guide you very effectively. Bonsai Village is located In Saitama City. It takes about one hour from the center of Tokyo by rail. At present day, there are five nurseries of Bonsai and The Omiya Bonsai Art Museum. Each of the nurseries has their own characteristics you may enjoy. Some have lady-favorite Bonsai, and some has large size Bonsai. You may buy vessels and tools specialized in Bonsai nursing. You could even buy Bonsai itself( you need some complicated procedures to export them). Bonsai village is within only 15 minute by foot. You can enjoy walking in quiet town(village) by only one hour trip from the downtown of Tokyo.  The museum has about 150 Bonsai. Some of them are 1000-2000 years old and you can also observe the staff caring them at a short distance. The museum also has three typical TOKONOMA (caves) with best suited Bonsai. There are English brochures which is very simple and volunteer guides with little foreign language efficiency.
