Saitama Prefecture

Kawagoe

Saitama Prefecture is Tokyo's neighbor to the north. Much of southeastern Saitama, including the prefectural capital of Saitama City, are considered suburbs of Tokyo, while its western parts are mostly rural and mountainous and include parts of the Chichibu-Tama-Kai National Park.

The former castle town of Kawagoe and the mountainous Chichibu region, known for its night festival held in December, are some of the prefecture's major tourist attractions.
