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.

It is only a 1-hour train ride from Tokyo’s Ueno Station on the Takasaki Line (JR East) to Saitama Prefecture’s Gyoda, where ancient lotuses are in full bloom! Besides, there are Saitama Kofun (tumuli, ancient burial mounds) Park and Oshi Castle, which are rarely seen in other cities in Japan. Here is an account of my one-day round trip to Gyoda and I hope it could be helpful to you.

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.
