Day 13 – Kawagoe

27 06 2008

Decided to visit Kawagoe (Little Edo) to get more of the old Japan vibe. The moment one starts walking down some of Kawagoe’s streets you emediately feel like you returned to the past. The houses, the streets, the food, everything is from the Edo era. (a pity some streets allow cars to come in ruining the vibe however, it was still amazing). While pictures say a thousand words, this is a place were pictures could never express the vibe nor beauty of the town.

Walking to Kawagoe

For fans of traditional Japanese sweets/candy Kawagoe is like heaven.

If only cars couldn’t enter.

Had to take a picture! This house looks pretty American.

Thats more like it, back to normal.
