Kawagoe the Small Edo is a place you must visit. Its a 2.5hr train ride from Sakura Hotel Nippori.
The traditional building from the Edo Period is being preserved and you will be amazed how the color of the building and the tiles are a very important factor to prevent the spread of fire.
You will also be able to ride the rickshaw to tour the area too and explanation will be made during the ride.
