In my opinion, it wasn't so interesting as all the Edo era buildings were located in a single "preservation zone" that is designed like a tourist trap and everything outside of that zone just looks like your typical Tokyo urban sprawl.
Arrival at Kawagoe station Typical layout of a Tokyo suburban community with the train station and the centre and shopping centres surrounding the station.
As I arrived at 1 pm, I tried to find someplace to eat. Using my iPhone and the Japanese "Tabelog" app, I found this somewhat run-down curry restaurant which had a high rating.
I ordered the "European Style" chicken curry which cost 1100 yen.
Next I went to explore the attractions that made this town "famous".
The non-descript city hall building.
The remaining building of Kawagoe castle. (Not very impressive)
