Saitama-ken Things to Do

  • Fruit picking in Otsuki Garden, Saitama

    For a little different experience I can really recommend spending a couple of hours picking fruits in this fruit farm. This farm is mainly a mandarin farm, located in Tokigawa. I think you can find many of these fruit farms, mandarin and other fruits, scattered around the area.This is a great activity on a sunny day, especially for families with...

  • Saiboku ham, Koma shrine and Shouden...

    Saiboku ham is an award winning maker of sausages. This place has a fairly big "German style" restaurant and some shops where they sell meat and locally produced vegetables. I believe they also have some animal related activities for families with children.The Koma shrine dates back to when the Koreans who migrated to Japan around 1300 years ago....

  • Little Edo - Kawagoe

    Located just a short walk from Kawagoe station, you can visit this historic Japanese area with lots of old building and old style shops. My favorite place was definitely a narrow little lane called Penny Candy Lane (Kashiya Yokosho). Here you'll find small little snack shops selling various traditional Japanese snacks. A lot of shops sold a snack I...

  • River boating in Nagatoro

    This is probably the main attraction in Nagatoro and a highly recommended one. It's a great way to enjoy the scenic landscape along the river.

  • A walk in Hachigata castle park

    The park is the ruins of the Hachigata Castle, which was built around 1476. I would suggest visiting the museum to get an image of what the site looked like back in the days. At the moment you can see the different levels the castle was built upon to help defend against attackers. This place is really serene and can be enjoyed by anyone. The park...

  • Visit Seiun sake brewery

    This little brewery is said to produce one of the best sakes in the region. We were told that the secret to the delightful taste lies within the sweetness of the water in the region. They had a guided tour in the brewery and they showed us how depending on how much the rice grains are polishes, the better sake you can make. And by the end of the...

  • Tobu Zoo

    Around 35-40 minutes from central Tokyo by train is the Tobu Zoo. As it's not in a built up area at all, there's plenty of space, and there are plenty of grassed areas to have a picnic etc.There's also an amusement park within the grounds if that's your thing, although none of the rides looked especially interesting.The grounds cost 1500 yen for...
