- quote -
From Edo to today--why not take a trip through the course of time?
Kawagoe, a key location in the north of Edo (former name of Tokyo), developed as a castle town of the Kawagoe clan.
Connected to Edo by the Shingashigawa River and the Kawagoe Kaido Road, people and cargo continuously came and went, and the entire town bustled with a spirit of enthusiasm. Thus Kawagoe had deep financial and cultural connections to Edo, which led to it being called by the endearing name 小江戸Koedo, meaning "a little Edo".
Even into the Meiji Period, it was the premier merchant city of Saitama Prefecture, and it flourished as a logistic hub for grain and was known for the production of fabrics such as Tozan (pinstriped cotton fabric).
It is said, "There are many little Tokyo's in the world but Kawagoe is the only Koedo".
However, the vestiges of Edo are not the only things which remain in Kawagoe. Following the war, the center of the prefecture became Saitama City which meant there was no large-scale development and the streets of the Edo Period (1600~1867), Meiji Period(1868~1912), Taisho Period (1912~1926), and Showa Period (1926~1989) are left behind like the tracks of time.
In Kawagoe you'll see merchant houses, which carry the feeling of Edo, the Western modernization with the romantic aroma of Taisho, the elegance remaining in the downtown Showa alleys, and the new Kawagoe lined with department stores and station buildings. Taking a walk through Kawagoe lets you meet Japan from various time periods.
30 minutes from Tokyo by train. You'll be able to see the traditional and authentic side of Japan in Kawagoe which can't be seen in Tokyo.
