  • kawagoe is a beautiful town in saitama prefecture

  • where you get to experience the elegant atmosphere of the 20th century japan

  • we also wanted to  explore the beauty of this town

  • and what better way to explore a city and learn about the culture  then through your stomach?

  • let us take you on a food tour in japan's thai show roman cities  kawague

  • kawagoe is very famous for its sweet potato treats

  • around town you can find shops  selling various types of sweet potato desserts

  • one of the most famous ones is called Koeda Osatsu

  • this store is selling potato chips on the tower bell street

  • their long and thin potato chips  rose to fame shortly after its opening

  • and it is no surprise why

  • they are super thin yet crunchy

  • plus very easy to eat

  • they are usually served with a sauce of your choice

  • we decided to go with  the salty butter option

  • this is super super crispy

  • We then moved on to the Kashiya Yokocho,also known as candy alley

  • this place has been around for some time now

  • and has a huge historical significance

  • in 1923 there was a great earthquake in kanto

  • after which tokyo experienced the shortage in supply of japanese candies

  • kasia yokocho with its  70 candy stores became the main candy supplier

  • so this is the sweet potato ice cream

  • sweet potato is super famous here in Kawagoe

  • wow the flavor of the potato is not so  strong

  • but you can definitely taste it

  • I think everyone gets this when they come to Kawagoe, so...

  • Eat while it's hot

  • it's like octopus mayonnaise cracker

  • i've tried  this before so i know what it tastes like

  • it's really nice actually

  • one of my favorite  things to eat at the japanese festival

  • Let's try

  • tastes a bit like okonomiyaki with the sauce

  • there's like soy sauce and mayo combined together

  • but apart from okonomiyaki this also  has a very crispy texture

  • must try in kawague

  • as the times changed the stores  in casa yokocho started to close  

  • and now there are only 20 stores remaining  

  • despite that kashiya yokocho has still been voted as one of the 100 "best smelling" places in japan

  • homemade

  • this is the largest snack  i've ever seen in my life

  • very nice  

  • almost like cotton candy

  • it has the  same texture

  • of course it doesn't really melt

  • it's like cotton candy combined  with bread

  • Itfeels like eating a cloud

  • today all i've been doing is just eating

  • so i'm kind of full but we had to try this

  • Imoko

  • Manju

  • filled with sweet potato of course

  • because this is quite famous here so....

  • amazing

  • there's anko(red beans)

  • and sweet potato  in it

  • and the the dough is super chewy

  • it is a wonderful wonderful  combination seriously

  • i am so surprised

  • this food tour would not be complete without trying cargo's original beer COEDO

  • COEDO was founded by a family

  • which started organic farming  with the concept of peace safe and delicious

  • COEDO's goal is not to create  beers that are overtly unique  

  • but to create balanced craft products by  paying attention to the smallest details

  • i'm gonna try this Matsuri Ale made of rice

  • not strong

  • very very mild flavor

  • fresh

  • last but not least we stopped by shaved ice cream store, KOREKAKI

  • the specialty of this store is its natural ice

  • compared to the ice  made in the refrigerator

  • making of kurekake's eyes starts in mid-winter

  • and takes a very long  time

  • this slow process ensures that the ice is harder to melt

  • and can be shaved into very tiny  pieces

  • which gives it almost a fluffy texture

  • same size

  • it also has cream on top

  • makes it  more creamy and smooth

  • super nice

  • so how did you like this food tour in  kawague saitama

  • i always say that SAITAMA is my favorite prefecture

  • because whenever  i come i get the same wonderful experience

  • the japanese people here

  • so next time you're in tokyo and you have some time off

  • make sure to visit KAWAGOE

  • thank you  very much

  • see you in the next episode

  • bye

kawagoe is a beautiful town in saitama prefecture
