When you visit Kawagoe (川越), Kura no Machi Ichibangai Street (蔵の街一番街) being on your itinerary is a must. The main street in the old warehouse district is where you can find the majority of the Kurazukuri townscape from the Edo period. The street isn’t just about Kawagoe’s landmark, Toki no Kane Clock and those old black-plastered luxurious warehouse-style houses. The historical ambience and the shops and restaurants that line the road have attracted hundreds of thousands of tourists every year!
Kurazukuri (蔵造り) is a type of traditional Japanese architecture used mainly for building warehouses. It evolved from an Edo townhouse style and is particularly fire-resistant. Like the Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter in Okayama, Kawagoe Ichibangai was designated an Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings.
How to Get to Kura no Machi Ichibangai Street
- Kawagoe Ichibangai is around a 10 to 15-minute walk from Honkawagoe Station and a 25-minute walk from Kawagoe Station.
- If you take the CO-EDO Loop Bus (小江戸巡回バス), get off at Kura no Machi (蔵の街).

Kawagoe Art Cafe Elevato (川越アートカフェ エレバート)
Most of the buildings at the entrance of Kura no Machi are still decorated in Taisho Western style. The one that most exemplifies this is the Former Tanaka Residence (田中家住宅), which houses the Kawagoe Art Cafe Elevato. The Former Tanaka Residence was completed in 1915 and is the oldest Western-style building in Kawagoe. The residence is divided into two parts. The front part facing the road was the shopfront for a bicycle and gun shop (桜井商店), whereas the second building at the back is the living quarter. While the building appears to display a Western style, the structure is still built from the same wood as most Kura-zukuri-style houses on the same road!
Allegedly, the plan was initially to build another warehouse-style building in line with other buildings nearby. But the plan changed after the construction started. So the final product became a hybrid. After the gun shop was closed, it became an art museum exhibiting the artworks of the artists from Kawagoe before it was transformed into Kawagoe Art Cafe Elevato.
As you walk into the cafe, the fact that the building was meant to be a Kura-zukuri warehouse becomes more apparent. The high ceiling and the wooden beams are both characteristics of a traditional Japanese warehouse.
Even the wooden beam is dated!
Kawagoe Art Cafe Elevato is also where you can take away the locally brewed COEDO Beer (COEDOビール). If you decide to dine in, get a window seat on the second floor to overlook those walking on the street and the retro-style architecture close by and decide the next shop to visit. The Japanese Confectionary Shop, Kameya, directly opposite the cafe, can be a good choice!
Tip: If you take it away, COEDO Beer is cheaper at 500 yen. Dine-in price starts from 750 yen.
If you are a vegetarian who eats eggs, make sure you try the homemade sweet potato pudding (家製さつまいもプリン). It is made by the chef of the sister restaurant Furin (和創菜と四季のすし 風凛) at the back of the cafe. The rich flavor from eggs and sweet potato matches really well, and it is one of their best-selling dessert dishes!
Also recommended at the Kawagoe Art Cafe Elevato is the slightly sour Homemade Cheese Cake (自家製チーズケーキ).
Kawagoe Art Cafe Elevato’s Business Hours and Access Information
- Kawagoe Art Cafe Elevato is open daily from 11:30 am to 6 pm except for Wednesdays and the 3rd Thursday.
- The last order is taken at 5:30 pm.
- The cafe is a 10-minute walk from Honkawagoe Station and a 20-minute walk from Kawagoe Station.
- If you plan to take a bus, it is just a one-minute walk from the bus stop, Nakachō (仲町).
Kameya Main Store (亀屋)
A must-try traditional Japanese confectionary shop in Kawagoe is Kameya. Kameya was established in 1783 and was chosen as a dedicated sweets maker for the lord of the Kawagoe Domain. As you can imagine, the highly regarded confectionary maker had earned a fortune. So in 1894, the fifth owner of the shop spent around 200 million dollars and constructed the magnificent Kameya that we see today!
Before you enter Kameya, check out the window doors on the second floor. The sides of the doors are designed to match the door next to them. So when the door is opened, they connect with each other and flatten out! If you inspect the roof tile carefully, you can see the shop and the Yamazaki family’s crest, a crossed hawk feather (違い鷹の羽)!
Among many of its delicious sweets, the most famous is Kameya’s Monaka, which is traditionally made by combining two slim mochi wafers with azuki bean paste sandwiched in between. Instead of the usual round shape, the Monaka sold at Kameya is in a turtle shell shape, reinforcing the shop’s name, Kame. In addition to the usual red bean paste, it also offers seasonal Mocaka, such as cherry blossom flavor or matcha.
Another traditional confectionary you can try is Kogane-imo (こがね芋). The sweet potato-shaped traditional dessert has a cake-like but firm outer layer, while the interior is stuffed with dry white bean paste. As you bite into the Kogane-imo, the scent of cinnamon will spread throughout your mouth (*´ω｀).
For those who prefer Western-style desserts, a recommendation is the Koedo Kawagoe Imochou Cream Puff (川越芋シュー). The choux pastry has a moist yet chewy texture. And it doesn’t just have a sweet potato shape. The cream inside is also sweet potato-flavored! The cream puff’s sugar level is lower, thus a snack that won’t make you feel guilty while strolling around the historical township of Kawagoe!
In addition to the cream puff, you can also try the Koedo no Kokoro (小江戸の心), which is traditional style chocolate filled with seasonal fillings.
Kameya Main Store’s Business Hours and Access Information
- Kameya Main Store is open from 9 am to 6 pm.
- The shop is around a 15-minute walk from Honkawagoe Station.
- You can also take a bus and get off at Nakamachi (仲町).
Kawagoe Pudding (川越プリン)
Kawagoe Pudding is the first pudding specialist from Kawagoe. Its logo with Toki no Kane on a plate makes it really clear where the pudding was made. After iterating through many cycles of trial and error with premium-grade ingredients, such as the highest quality Madagascar vanilla beans, the shop finally landed upon a recipe that would amaze numerous pudding lovers, some of whom remarked that the pudding was the best pudding they had ever had!
The pudding specialist has a couple of flavors you can choose from, and the most recommended flavor is, again, sweet potato, Kawagoe Imo (川越いも).
The special thing about this pudding is that the shop not only blended the Kawagoe sweet potato into the pudding mixture but also diced sweet potatoes in the pudding! The resulting product has a smoother and richer taste that will be difficult to find elsewhere!
And if you don’t mind spending a little bit extra on a pudding, instead of the Kawagoe Imo pudding, get the Dondake Imo Pudding (どんだけ～芋プリン). The dessert is somewhat of a sweet potato paradise. A layer of soft pudding serve is squeezed to cover the pudding jar’s opening. Then, the soft serve is wrapped with sweet potato purée before a crispy sweet potato chip is attached above.
This is why the pudding has “Dondake” appended to its name – because Dondake means “how much more”, which is the exact wording used when the Japanese react to hearing about this amazing dessert’s ingredients (´▽｀*).
Tip: They might also have the purple sweet potato version of the Dondake Imo Pudding (どんだけ～紫芋プリン) on the day. Grab it if you see it, as it is a limited-edition pudding!
Another flavor that you should give a go is the Kawagoe Matcha (河越抹茶). With the locally planted matcha and black beans, the normally western dessert suddenly became more Japanese!
And if the day isn’t too cold when you visit Kawagoe, let the Pudding Soft Serve astonish you. Kawagoe Pudidng’s original pudding-flavored ice cream is made from mixing pudding and caramel. To make the dessert more amazing, the shop also has a premium version of the ice cream, Kawagoe Imo no Mont Blanc Soft Cream (川越芋のモンブランソフトクリーム). The cone is first filled with pudding-flavored ice cream before wrapping it in sweet potato purée.
Tip: Exchange the pudding jar with a 10 yen coin at the shop after you finish the pudding.
Kawagoe Pudding’s Business Hours and Access Information
- Kawagoe Pudding is open from 11 am to 5 pm.
- Kawagoe Pudding is around a 10-minute walk from Honkawagoe Station and a 20 to 25-minute walk from Kawagoe Station.
- You can also take a bus from Kawagoe Station’s east exit or Honkawagoe Station and get off at Nakachō (仲町).
Tsubakiya Foot Spa Tea Room (足湯喫茶 椿や)
Tsubakiya would be a great spot on the way back to the station to relax your tired feet. Dipping your feet into the hot spring in the Japanese garden while enjoying those traditional desserts will be the perfect way to end your visit to Kawagoe!
Tsubakiya Foot Spa Tea Room resides in a building called Kawagoe Tsubaki no Kura (川越 椿の蔵). The building, measuring a total length of 30 meters, also houses a Japanese miscellaneous goods and souvenirs shop called Wamonoya Kaya (和雑貨ショップ 倭物や カヤ) on the first floor and a gemstone accessory shop Iwaza (パワーストーンショップ 岩座) on the second floor. The cafe is in the courtyard. So to get to Tsubakiya Foot Spa Tea Room, go straight to the back of the building. The cafe’s entrance is marked with a shop curtain with a “Yu (ゆ)” written in the middle.
You might be wondering if visiting the cafe on a hot summer day would be unpleasant. This shouldn’t be a problem. The cafe adjusts the water temperature according to the season. So in summer, the water will be slightly cooler. In winter, a blanket is provided to keep your thighs warm (=ﾟωﾟ)ﾉ.
Fear not if you don’t have a small towel to dry your feet! Choose a menu option with the cafe’s original camellia-patterned or Toki no Kane Tower towel as a souvenir!
Note that you might want to apply insect repellent to keep the mosquitos away, especially at night.
Tsubakiya Foot Spa Tea Room’s Business Hours and Access Information
- Tsubakiya Foot Spa Tea Room is open from
- 12 pm to 5:30 pm on weekdays

Fina China Store Yamawa (陶舗やまわ) and Cafe Torocco (陶路子)
On Kawagoe Ichiban Machi Street, the original Hara Family Residence (原家住宅) nowadays houses a pottery and china gallery. In contrast to the stately and solemn exterior, the interior is bright and stylish, not to mention the intricate ceramics on exhibit, which you can bring home!
The pottery shop’s building was built in 1893 as a kimono store. Yamawa then later relocated from Tokyo to here in 1920.
A pottery workshop at the back of the gallery offers locals short- and long-term classes. They also have a one-hour trial plan and a pottery coloring plan. But note the final product can only be shipped to you in a month’s time for the pottery experience.
For more information, refer to their website HERE and translate it to English using Google Chrome’s translation function at the right of the address bar.
In addition to the pottery, many customers visit it for its cafe, Torocco. Many celebrities have visited the cafe, including past Japanese emperors and empresses!
Although there is only one lunch option, it is a must-try! The Satsuma-imo Mini Kaiseki (さつまいもミニ懐石) is a sweet potato-based Kaiseki cuisine tastes heavenly. If you weren’t told that the majority of the meal is made of sweet potato, you wouldn’t realize it!
The cafe’s shaved ice is also worth ordering!
Note that most of the ceramics used at Cafe Torocco are also sold at Fina China Store Yamawa. So if anything has caught your attention in the cafe, check with the staff to see if you can bring it home!
You can refer to their full menu HERE on the Japanese official website.
Tip: Make a reservation for Satsuma-imo Mini Kaiseki in advance. This not only ensures you can enjoy the unique Kaiseki cuisine, but the cafe can also exclude meat and seafood for you. Just note that they won’t be able to make a vegetarian croquette. However, you can ask them if they can replace it with something else.
To book, refer to the official website HERE and send them an email by clicking the mail icon at the bottom of the webpage.

Kashou Umon Bell Tower Shop (菓匠右門 時の鐘店)
If we had to designate something as Kawagoe’s famous specialty, it has to be sweet potato. Aside from the baked sweet potatoes which are a must in colder seasons, the spot to enjoy the locally harvested sweet potatoes is Kashou Umon. The traditional sweets maker is just two shops away from Toki no Kane, so how about having their famous sweet potato ice cream while you listen to the neighboring landmark bell tolling? The cute soft serve cone with a heart-shaped Monaka will surely catch a lot of attention on social media (^_-)-☆.
Monaka is a Japanese sweet with azuki bean paste sandwiched between two thin crisp wafers made from mochi.
Kashou Umon’s signatory confectionary is, however, not the sweet potato ice cream. It is a traditional sweet called Imo Koi (いも恋). Inside the white chewy mochi skin is a layer of fluffy sweet potato topped with a layer of red bean. As a tourist, you can enjoy the freshly steamed Imo Koi, the perfect snack to enjoy when you stroll around Kawagoe!
Kashou Umon Bell Tower Shop’s Business Hours and Access Information
- Kashou Umon Bell Tower Shop is open from 10 am to 6 pm daily except for the end of December to the beginning of January.
- It is around a 15-minute walk from Honkawagoe Station and a 25-minute walk from Kawagoe Station.
Starbucks Coffee – Kawagoe Kanetsuki-dōri Shop (スターバックスコーヒー 川越鐘つき通り店)
Because Starbucks Coffee can be found almost everywhere, you probably won’t be interested in visiting one in Japan. But this shouldn’t be the case for the one in Kawagoe. This Starbucks is one of the top 20 Starbucks Stores to Visit in 2020. So even if you aren’t interested in the coffee it sells, you will certainly want to snap a photo with its traditional Japanese look!
As you take a sip, look up to the black wall and admire the Fusuma sliding door painting (襖絵) from the beginning of the 20th century. Also, grab one of the bench seats with back support instead of the one-seater chair. The fabric of the back cushion is made from Kawagoe Tōzan (川越唐桟), a type of cotton fabric that has been popular since the Edo period.
At the back of the cafe is a gorgeous Japanese garden filled with typical elements common to Kawagoe. For example, in addition to the plum and cherry blossom, Osmanthus heterophyllus is planted. The terrace seats sandwiched by the cafe and garden are thus the first class seats in Starbucks Coffee – Kawagoe Kanetsuki-dōri Shop when the weather is good.
Entry to the garden is usually forbidden.
Starbucks Coffee – Kawagoe Kanetsuki-dōri Shop
- Starbucks Coffee – Kawagoe Kanetsuki-dōri Shop is open from 8 am to 8 pm.
- It is around a 20-minute walk from Honkawagoe Station and a 25-minute walk from Kawagoe Station.
- If you plan to take CO-EDO Loop Bus (小江戸巡回バス), get off at Kura no Machi (蔵の街).
Koedo Osatsuan (小江戸おさつ庵)
Another spot to enjoy sweet potato desserts is Koedo Osatsuan, just two shops away from Starbucks Coffee. The shop is famous for its sweet potato chips.
Forget about the tiny chips on your local supermarket’s shelf. The sweet potato chips here are gigantic, which makes you wonder how big the sweet potatoes were before they were sliced up! Depending on how the chips are packed, your bag of chips can look like a bouquet (´▽｀*). Whilst the seasoning is relatively simple, the artistry in these chips is in how well they are salted.
If you love dipping, a bag of chips comes with a dip of your choice, sweet or savory. You can also purchase additional flavors for 50 yen per dip. The most popular flavor is salt butter (塩バター).
Koedo Osatsuan also sells sweet potato soft serve. But the difference is that it comes with a giant sweet potato chip that is a lot bigger than the ice cream!
Koedo Osatsuan (小江戸おさつ庵)
- Koedo Osatsuan is open from
- 10:30 am to 4:30 pm on weekdays
- 10:30 am to 5:30 pm on weekends and public holidays
- The shop is closed from the end of December to the beginning of January.
- The shop is around a 15-minute walk from Honkawagoe station.
- If you plan to take CO-EDO Loop Bus (小江戸巡回バス), get off at Icxhibangai (一番街).
Koedo Yokochō Alley (小江戸横丁)
As its name suggests, Koedo Yokochō is a complex with shops linked by small alleys. The building was originally completed as the base of a seafood wholesaler in 1992, which was later transformed into an arcade-like shopping space filled with cafes, restaurants, and boutique shops.
The good news is that a major renovation was completed on the building in April 2022. So when you visit Koedo Yokochō on your next Japan trip, you will be able to enjoy some delicious traditional desserts in the newly opened cafes. There is even a Kimono rental shop stationed here!
For example, MINAMIMACHI COFFEE (やきいも芋川 MINAMIMACHI COFFEE) facing the Ichibangai sweet is a grilled sweet potato specialist. The must-try here is sweet potato Brûlée. The dessert made from extremely sweet potato is an advanced version of grilled sweet potato. You can choose whether to add sea salt or not. If you do, let the staff know not to sprinkle too much, or the salty taste will ruin the deliciousness of the sweet potato.
In addition, the Komachi salon and KURO cafe (こまち salon and KUROcafe) is where you can complete the special sweet potato Mont Blanc by squeezing the sweet potato purée. At the bottom of the dessert, instead of the normal cake base, it is replaced by ice cream and rusk, both in black color!
To get to the other shops, use the alley on the left of the building.
Vanitoy Bagel Kura Tsukuri Honten (VANITOY BAGEL 蔵づくり本店)
While bagels probably don’t sound appealing to those who want to try out the local food, give Vanitoy Bagel a chance when you visit Kawagoe.
As you get closer to the shop, we are sure you will be drawn to Vanitoy Bagel by the freshly baked scent. Although the bagels may look like the regular ones in New York, they are more fluffy!
The bagel stand usually has more than 30 flavors on the shelf, from sweet to savory. It is where you re-discover how the Japanese can bring an ordinary bagel to a whole new level. Where else can you find a Margherita bagel or a bagel filled with matcha, red bean paste, and cream cheese?
If you have time, head to the dining area on the second floor, where you can observe the busy street of Kawagoe as you bite into the delicious bagels!
Tip: If you have dietary requirements, check with the shop to see if the bagels are still made without butter and eggs. You can utilize the phrases in our Essential Japanese Travel Phrases for Vegetarians and Vegans article.
Vanitoy Bagel Kura Tsukuri’s Business Hours and Access Information
- Vanitoy Bagel Kura Tsukuri is open from
- 10 am to 5 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
- 10 am to 6 pm on the weekends and public holidays
- Note it doesn’t open on Wednesdays

Wahōan Cafe (狭山茶カフェ 和芳庵)
When you visit an area with a traditional Japanese setting, wouldn’t you want to sit down and taste some tea-flavored desserts and a cup of nicely brewed tea?
If your answer is yes, Wahōan is the spot you want to visit. The cafe is operated by a local tea farming company, Nagamine-en (長峰園), specialing in Sayama tea (狭山茶). Sayama tea is one of Japan’s top three green tea, produced in the southwestern Saitama Prefecture. Compared to the tea grown in other parts of the country, Sayama tea has a richer and more distinct flavor from its thicker leaves.
The cafe is located on the second floor. The entrance is at the side of the building. Remember to take off your shoes and put them in the shoe bag provided, as tatami mats cover the cafe’s floor.
If you love traditional crafts, you might want to examine the shoe bag because it is made from Kawagoe Tōzan (川越唐桟), a type of cotton fabric that originates from Kawagoe.
When you go up to the second floor, you can feel the warmth of wood throughout. The dining space is decorated with various Japanese tea ceremony utensils. Although you won’t be able to experience the ceremony here, it is your chance to examine the intricate utensils in detail.
In addition, you might notice a large Kimono shop signboard hanging on one of the walls. This was the signboard before the tea maker took over the shop. The traditional building used to be a Kimono store.
Based on the signboard’s size and design, it seems like the Kimono shop was quite popular in the area and received a lot of customers!
What to Order at Wahōan Cafe
If you aren’t sure what to order, the most popular menu is called Sayama Kissako (さやまきっさこ).
Kisakko means “Welcome, please come in and enjoy some tea”. The set comes with a pot of Sayama tea, and a plate of the cafe’s original sweets, including Nama-Chocolate (Japanese ganache), cookies, marshmallows, and more!
If you don’t eat eggs, the Premium Sayama Matcha Nagomi (プレミアム狭山抹茶 なごみ) can be a good choice for you. Matcha is the best way to enjoy Sayama tea’s rich flavor. The matcha is usually coupled with matcha-flavored Nama-Chocolate!
While they don’t have an official English website, you can scroll through the photos on their menu on the Japanese one HERE.
Most tea and desserts served in the cafe are available at their tea shop on the first floor for you to bring home to share with your families and friends.
Wahōan Cafe’s Business Hours and Access Information
- Wahōan Cafe is open from 11 am to 5 pm.
- The last order is taken at 4:30 pm.
- The shop on the first floor is open from 10 am to 5 pm.
- It is around a 15-minute walk from Honkawagoe Station.
Kashiya Yokochō Alley (菓子屋横丁)
When you visit Kawagoe, try out the Dagashi (駄菓子), cheap Japanese snacks. The best place to source Dagashi is Kashiya Yokochō. The history of the street started with a few confectionary shops at the beginning of the Meiji period to manufacture and supply cheap sweets after the Great Kanto Earthquake severely damaged Tokyo.
Many of the Dagashi makers in the 100-meter-long alley thus opened in the late 19th century. At its peak, the alley also hosted other shops besides its Dagashi shops.
While only around 20 Dagashi shops survived the test of time, the Japanese retro ambiance surrounding Kashiya Yokochō still deems it a popular spot among locals and tourists. Walking on the stone pavements and surrounded by the traditional houses, it would almost feel like you are walking into the Edo period!
The only con about Kashiya Yokochō is that it would be really hard to resist not overbuying and eating because the snacks and sweets sold here are all so cheap and delicious-looking (´▽｀*).
Important: Many shops on Kashiya Yokochō Alley close on Mondays.
- Kashiya Yokochō is around a 15-minute walk from Seibu’s Honkawagoe Station (本川越駅).
- If you are arriving at Tobu or JR’s Kawagoe Station (川越駅), take the Tobu Bus West and get off at Fuda no Tsuji (札ノ辻). The alley is then a 2-minute walk away.
- If you take the CO-EDO Loop Bus (小江戸巡回バス), get off at Kashiya Yokochō (菓子屋横丁).
The Attractions on Taishō Roman Yume-dōri Street
Instead of taking a bus from the nearest train station to Kura no Machi Ichibangai Street, we recommend you take a relaxing walk. This way, you will walk past the 300-meter-long Taishō Roman Yume-dōri Street, filled with Taishō era vibes. If you stop by the street before heading into the traditional warehouse district, your visit to Kawagoe will be a tour back in time in reverse chronological order!
For more information, refer to our article on Taishō Roman Yume-dōri Street!
Other Attractions in Kawagoe
Besides the workshops, Kawagoe also has historical and cultural attractions, shops and restaurants, and museums that might interest you.
