Kawagoe is a city in Saitama Prefecture. It’s served by Kawagoe Station which connects it to Ikebukuro via the JR Kawagoe Line/JR Saikyo Line and the Tobu Tojo Line.

The city is known as “Little Edo” due to the survival of neighbourhoods of historical warehouses and shops, which give parts of the city a ‘ye olde Edo’ ambience.

The Kawagoe Festival is a festival of national significance that takes place on the third Saturday and Sunday of October.
