Kawagoe is located in Saitama Prefecture. It has a nickname of "Ko-edo", which means "Little Edo" in Japanese because it was used to be a very vibrant town under the feudal government during the Edo Period.

Let us take a quick look at the various attractions around the city! Please click the icons on the map below for detailed information.
