By 川越きものの日実行委員会事務局 Follow | Public


Let’s visit a Temple & Shrine to make a New Year’s Wish dressed in Kimono!
Many Japanese people visit Shrines and Temples during the first three days of January for New Year’s wishes, praying for health, happiness etc. We call this “Hatsumode”.

You can experience the Japanese cultural event and wear Kimono at the same time at this event.

■About Kawagoe
Kawagoe enjoyed political and military importance during the Edo period as it offered northern protection for Edo Castle. Today, people can enjoy the vestiges of this era still visible in Kawagoe’s elegant streets, old-time sweet shops and the town bell that sounds on the hour. Stroll the streets of Koedo (Little Edo) and enjoy a trip back in time to the Edo Period.
