Kawagoe Walk by our hotel staff S
Let us introduce Kawagoe Walk from Kurazukuri Zone(Old storehouse zone) to Kita-in and Hie Shrine by our hotel staff S san (Not living in Kawagoe City).
The streetscape is still not crowded from the effect of the novel corona virus.
Anyway, let’s start from Hon Kawagoe station.
This is the information board on the side of intersection at Hon Kawagoe station.
The board explains Kurazukuri Zone(Old storehouse zone), Toki no kane (Time Bell Tower) and others in both Japanese and English.
Let’s start from Hon Kawagoe station to Kurazukuri Zone.
This is Kumano shrine. You can try “Health Stepping Road” to check your health.
If you drop by, please challenge it. Unfortunately, only looking from in front of the shrine was available due to construction work.
After walking to side street for Matue machi intersection, Eel ‘Ichinoya’ is there.
We recommend this eel restaurant, every time our guest asks us where a good eel restrant is＾＾At the moment, ‘Ichinoya’ has temporarily closed by the novel corona virus effects.
