This is our last post of Kawagoe introduction series, then, we introduce you that the last and (maybe) the largest shopping spot to discover local products for souvenir for Kawagoe town.
Koedo Kurari (小江戸 蔵里) is a large shopping and dining house focusing on local products of Kawagoe.
It is on the way between the old town district and two train stations.
It will be useful even when you forget purchasing some products in the old town or when you would like to take a break before leaving Kawagoe by train.
The building both exterior and interior looks like Kura (traditional style storage), even though the inside is modern space with a big gift shop, restaurant, cafe etc.
Espcially we recommend Kura Cafe existing in a corner of the shopping area.
The space looks good with wooden furniture in the mixture style of modern and traditional element.
As for menu, if you look for sweets, please try sweet potato pudding, made from the town's local specialty ingredient.
Alternatively, the cafe also provides lunch set meal or local brand beer (Koedo), green tea etc.
Please find our other posts about Kawagoe, if you have not visited them.
