You’ll catch a train to Kawagoe, a living remnant of Japan’s Edo era, and discover its relics, museums and striking culture with an insightful host. Together, you could explore Kita-in Temple, where you’ll find a room that once formed part of Tokyo’s iconic Edo Castle, or you could witness the power of the annual Kawagoe Festival, when locals take to the streets on extravagant floats to celebrate the arrival of summer. If you’re not lucky enough to see it live, you can get a taste at the unique Festival Museum! Down in Penny Candy Lane, you might discover a world of sweet delights in a rustic setting, or you could wander along Kurazukuri Street, where traditional, charcoal-tiled buildings offer a unique glimpse into the past.
Travel back in time and visit “Little Edo”, a reference to the grand, feudal Tokyo of old. Here, less than an hour north of Tokyo, Japanese history and culture have been preserved in the shape of traditional wooden buildings, fascinating museums, and a festival that celebrates the glory of eras gone by. Remnants of the centuries-old castle town are preserved along the modern streets, and your host will help you navigate colossal stone walls to discover the Toki no Kane bell tower, a local icon, and Hikawa Shrine, where cherry trees shroud a picturesque zoo and museum. Your host will also show you how to eat local delicacies like boiled eel - if you dare - and all kinds of quirky sweet potato-infused treats.
