Koedo Loop Bus

If you would like to take a shorter but efficient tour of the tourist spots, the loop bus is convenient.

The town is called "Koedo" but it is actually Kawagoe. It is large and full of famous sightseeing spots. To try to walk around and see all of them would be quite an arduous venture.
That is why we have the "Koedo Loop Bus" and "Koedo Famous Spots Loop Bus" for showing tourists around all the famous places effectively.
The "Koedo Loop Bus"is a retro-style bus which matches the streets of Kura. Just riding the bus once around the town will fill you with nostalgia. On the other hand, there is the "Koedo Famous Spots Loop Bus", which looks the same, but which is "cheaper", with a one-day free pass. It definitely makes value sightseeing possible. For details, please see the pages below (links pasted).
