Kawagoe was very important city for Tokugawa shogunate to protect northern direction of Edo castle from the 17th to the 19th century. Therefore, it is called Koedo, literally means small Edo. It has developed independently since Meiji restoration in 1868, so this unique city must attract you. You can experience something different from Tokyo.
