Located only 45 minutes northwest of Tokyo, Kawagoe might as well be a modern-day time machine! This little known spot has earned itself the nickname “Little Edo” (Edo being the old name for Tokyo) due to its numerous historical warehouses. Today the area is an enjoyable historic day trip from Tokyo for both travellers and locals alike.

One interesting titbit is that Kawagoe’s Kita-in temple is literally comprised of the only surviving pieces of Edo Castle. After a great fire, the shogunate had portions of the castle carried on foot all the way from central Tokyo up to Kawagoe to reconstruct the temple. Now you can impress your friends with Kawagoe trivia… you’re welcome!
