About Kawagoe

Kawagoe is a city in the western part of Saitama prefecture. Having a vast fields and mountains to its west, Kawagoe is actually in the heart of Saitama prefecture.
Kawagoe was one of the most important cities of Musashi-no-kuni (modern Tokyo, Saitama, and part of Kanagawa) from a long time ago, and it flourished in commerce due to the development of river transport during the Edo period.
Kawagoe survived repeated great fires. Through the experience and using the town of Edo (today’s Tokyo) as a model, it became a fire-resistant town. As a result, Kawagoe enjoys the combination of the historic warehouse district called Koedo (small Edo), beautiful buildings from Taisho period (1912~1925), and new places.
Kawagoe’s local tutelary “Hikawa Shrine” offers various events including a wind chime festival (known for love knots).
The Kawagoe Festival is held on the third weekend of October. This festival is full of excitement. Many decorated floats parade down the streets. It is definitely worth seeing.
Kawagoe is such a lively town with so many visitors during the day, but it is quiet and calm in the mornings and evenings. Staying at Chabudai will give you a chance to see and feel another side of Kawagoe.
