Only a couple of hours drive from any of the U.S. military installations in Kanto Plain, Kawagoe aka “Little Edo” is an attractive city lined with traditional clay-walled warehouses, a three-tiered bell tower, a majestic castle and numerous Shinto shrines. Penny Candy Lane in the town is home to a number of small sweet shops selling cheap candies, rice cakes, various toys and crafts. Visit this castle town and enjoy a taste of the old traditional city must offer.
