One of the main reasons people go to Kawagoe City is to eat Kawagoe food.
They vary from snack to Japanese sake.
Adults can buy Japanese pickles and local beer.
Children can buy snacks and ice cream.
Anyway everyone can enjoy eating them at a bench or while walking as soon as you buy them.
For example we bought rice crackers which were divided in bite size pieces.
We bought it because they were sold at toward the road and smelled of good soy sauce.
You can also find some kinds of pickled plums.
You can try a food sample and hear about it in detail.
However the most famous ingredient in Kawagoe City seems to be sweet potato.
They are used in ice cream, doughnuts, soba, distilled spirit(shouchu) and other snacks.
We ate rice dumplings that contained purple sweet potato.
This color and taste is natural.All my family was satisfied with this rice dumplings because it doesn’t contain eggs.
We also bought toasted soybean flour candy and burdock pickles .
We could go on forever buying many foods.
We feel these foods are more delicious than they really are because they are displayed beautifully and smell good.
If you buy these souvenirs, you can really feel like a tourist.
