Back to the Edo Period...
Kawagoe City in Saitama Prefecture, north of Tokyo, has made a video clip titled, “Journey through space-time to KOEDO KAWAGOE”. The old storehouse merchant houses are lined up in Kawagoe, leaving the taste of Edo era throughout the town.
The center of political economy at that time was placed in “Edo” (江戸), current Tokyo, and Kawagoe city prospered as a castle town protecting the city of Edo. Since the town was like a miniature Edo, Kawagoe has been called “KOEDO” (小江戸) since then.
The City cherishes their traditional culture and history, keeping the feel of Edo atmosphere.
In this program, our reporter will visit and experience the “Journey through space-time to KOEDO KAWAGOE”, the video made by the city of Kawagoe, willing their town to be known by more people around the world.
