Kawagoe

Kawagoe is known as little Edo since its old historical buildings are reminiscent of old Tokyo at the time it was named Edo. It was once a strategic location for trade with Tokyo. Kawagoe makes a perfect day trip from Tokyo and will please those who like to walk in a charming neighbourhood and sample local delicacies sold at the many food stalls and gift shops.

Kawagoe Kumano Shrine

The god of success, good fortune, business and mariage is enshrined at the Kumano shrine in Kawagoe. Visitors to Kumano can purify themselves by washing their coins in a special fountain. The most peculiar feature is perhaps the small passage leading to the shrine whose sides are covered by round stones. Those who venture on this path barefoot are in for a good massage!
