“Edo” is Tokyo in old days. Kawagoe City located on the north of Tokyo is called as Koedo which means “little Edo” because the town has historic streetscapes of Edo era.
Thirty-minute train ride from Ikebukuro will take you to this historic town. But even when you go out of the station, you cannot find this streetscape. It will take a long walk or a bus ride until you arrive at this place. So it was lucky of me to take a bike with me. It was about 10-minute bike ride.
There is a main street with old houses. If you go to branch streets, you will find another historic streetscapes.
Access to Kawagoe
Take a train or metro to Kawagoe Station or Hon-Kawagoe Station. From there, walk to Main Street.
