One day trip to Koedo Kawagoe!



Hi, I'm Yuuka from the student group mof.
I'm Yuka from mof.
Why don't you spend a different holiday in Kawagoe, which is not so far from central Tokyo?

The Bell of Time and the Streets of Kura-Zukuri
A short walk from Honkawagoe Station on the Seibu Shinjuku Line will take you back to the Edo
There are many historic buildings in Kawagoe, and this is one of the most representative. It has been
selected as an "Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings" by the Japanese


This is the "Toki no Kane", the symbol of Kawagoe.
I couldn't hear the bell at the right time, but it actually rings at 6am, 12pm, 3pm and 6pm.

This is an area where you can feel like you're in a Showa-era sweet shop.
Nostalgic sweets and candy are sold by weight.

It was "Surrealism in Japan" exhibition.

When I looked around, I saw many couples and friends taking photos of the shrine, which seemed to
be an Instagram spot.

Kawagoe Christ Church
You can go in and out of the chapel freely.

It's small and beautiful.
The structure of the church is based on the image of Noah's Ark.
It was a very relaxing space.

Taisho Roman Dream Street
The last stop is Taisho Roman Dream Street.

This is a street lined with coffee shops and kimono shops reminiscent of the Taisho era.
I couldn't resist eating a mitarashi dango.

Kawagoe has many buildings of high historical value.

There are also many tourists from overseas, and I have a feeling that Kawagoe will become even
more popular in the future.
A trip back in time from the present to Koedo Kawagoe is highly recommended.
