"The old storehouse merchant houses are lined up, and the Tokino-kane (Bell Tower) rings to tell the time. Take a stroll through the town in a kimono and you'll feel as if you've travelled back in time to ancient Edo. In Kawagoe, you can
experience the traditional and pure Japan which you can't see in Tokyo. Why not visit the temples and learn about historical heritage, fill up on Japanese food at an authentic Japanese restaurant, and spend time relaxing and absorbing the feeling of Edo?"
