Travel Tips & Information

Here is the basic information about Saitama as a reference for planning your trip.

1. "Getting there & Around" Kumagaya, Fukaya, Honjo

This is the northern area of Saitama Prefecture.
For access by train, the "Kagohara Station" on the Takasaki Line is a key point. This Kagohara becomes the first station of the Takasaki Line to Tokyo or an additional station of the train.
Therefore, it makes Kagohara a border and the convenience to Tokyo changes extremely.
In the Fukaya station and the Honjo station from Gunma than Kagohara, the number of the Takasaki Line is few, and the waiting time becomes long by the separation work.

Kumagaya is a station where the Shinkansen stops, and there is also a connection to the JR conventional line, but be aware that Honjo-Waseda station is about 2 km away from Honjo station, and there are no other options other than the Shinkansen.

Basically, in the northern part of the prefecture, you need a car.
Therefore, it is better to take the train to Kumagaya and rent a car to get around the area.

2. "Where to Stay" in Kumagaya, Fukaya, Honjo

It's not an area where you can stay and do things.
There are a few business hotels in front of the station.
In the case of Fukaya Station, there is the Grand Hotel near the station, which is a little higher in rank than a business hotel, but basically the last train to Tokyo goes until about 11pm, so please consider the merits of staying there before making a reservation.

3. "What to Do & See" in Kumagaya, Fukaya, Honjo

The memorial hall of Shibusawa Eiichi, the man whose name was printed on the 10,000 yen bill, is located in Fukaya City.
However, it is about 10 kilometers away from Fukaya Station, which is a bit far.
The indoor pool, Patio, is one of the largest indoor pools in the northern Kanto area.
In Kumagaya, there is a famous temple in Menuma, Menuma Shotenzan.
However, Menuma is in Saitama, which is more like Gunma, so getting there from the station can be a challenge.
The nationally famous Gali Gali Kun(ice cream)used to have a factory in Fukaya, but now they have built a new factory in Honjo City, which seems to be the main factory.
For factory tours, etc., visit the Honjo Senbon Sakura "5S" Factory in Honjo City.

4. "What / Where to Eat" in Kumagaya, Fukaya, Honjo

Fukaya is famous for its niboto.
Of course, there are stores that serve niboutou in the city, but most Fukaya residents eat niboutou at home by simmering udon noodles and vegetables, and probably do not go out to eat it. For this reason, even if you were to ask for a famous restaurant that serves nibbou, most citizens would probably not be able to find it right away.
You can buy a pack of Shinkichi at a supermarket (Belk, Yaoko, Ario) and try making it at home, or you can refer to the Fukaya City website for restaurants where you can eat it.
Kumagaya is "fry", I guess.
Fry is a kind of grilled food like okonomiyaki.
It is different from the jelly fries of Gyoda.
