Let’s visit Little Edo in Kawagoe with the new ”KAWAGOE COEDO MAP for MUSLIMS”!

Historical Town ”Kawagoe Little Edo”

Friends, have you ever visited Kawagoe in Saitama prefecture? Kawagoe city has been prosperous for a very long time. Today the city is still being called “Ko-Edo” or Little Edo (Edo is Tokyo’s predecessor). Kawagoe has many castle ruins, shrines, temples, historic sites and buildings, thus Kawagoe became leading tourist city in Japan.

Kawagoe can be reached from Ikebukuro on Tobu Tojo Line for 30 minutes or from Shibuya on Fukutoshin Line. The point is that Kawagoe is also very accessible from Tokyo, it takes about 45 minutes on Tobu Tojo Line. The city has the great Bell Tower “Toki no Kane” as the symbol of Kawagoe City and the historical “Hikawa Shrine”. Always packed with tourists in the weekend, Kawagoe is gaining more popularity.
