Saitama PrefecturePage: 1/3
When thinking of tsukemen in Saitama Prefecture, one that is sure to come up is “Noroshi” in Saitama City. Established as an independent shop after its owner trained at “Ore no Sora” in Takadanobaba, Noroshi is one of the most popular restaurants in Saitama Prefecture.
Just how good is it, since it’s been said to have surpassed its origin shop “Ore no Sora”?!
Why not try visiting winter locations in Tokyo’s neighboring Saitama Prefecture’s Chichibu? This area is 3 hours away from Ikebukuro by bus or the Seibu Line. I’ve come to visit the back-country areas of Chichibu, Saitama Prefecture. First off, I stopped to appreciate the artful ice formations!
Saitama – Kawagoe MatsuriRead Later
The official name of Kawagoe Matsuri is “Kawagoe Hikawa Matsuri,” and it has a long history of over 360 years. It is registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. During the festival, spectacular floats that carry elaborate dolls parade through the streets. The daytime is a great chance to see the ornate detailing on each float up close. At night, enjoy the fantastical atmosphere while watching the floats illuminated with colorful lights.
An exploration day trip to Saitama Prefecture! Ogose Plum Grove and Kuroyama Three WaterfallsRead Later
You can get to Saitama Prefecture's famous Ogose Plum Grove from Ikebukuro, Tokyo in about 70 minutes via the Tobu Tojo Line (with one transfer to the Tobu Ogose Line at Sakado Station). Today I’d like to share my Ogose exploration day trip plan with you, which includes flower viewing at the Ogose Plum Grove and a visit to the Kuroyama Three Waterfalls.
Chichibu, of Saitama Prefecture, is famous for its winter “icicles.” So far, I have introduced two famous icicle locations, and this article will feature a third. With this, the “Three Great Icicles” of Chichibu will be completed!
I visited another icicle formation, other than the “Icicles of Misotsuchi,” on January 11th, 2016. The icicle formation I’ll introduce this time is conveniently accessible on foot from the nearby station.
Railway MuseumRead Later
The Railway Museum was built to commemorate the 20th anniversary of JR East (East Japan Railway Company).
The Railway Museum preserves the heritage and materials of railways from both Japan and overseas. It also houses materials from the National Railway Reform and the inception of JR East. Anyone can enjoy what the Railway Museum has to offer, from people with no particular interest in trains to huge fans!
Although the Chichibu Area hosts a wide variety of festivals throughout the year, the finale of those, the Teppou Matsuri at Iida Hachiman Shrine, is held at the end of the year.
