Kawagoe enjoyed political and military importance during the Edo period
as it offered northern protection for Edo Castle. Today people can enjoy
the vestiges of this era still visible in Kawagoe’s elegant streets, old-time
sweets shops and the town bell that sounds the hour. Stroll the streets
of Koedo (Little Edo) and enjoy a time slip trip back to the Edo period.
