Kodai Hasunosato

Reviewed By cinchriste - Dallas, Georgia

Loved seeing the rice art field. I was there too late in the year to see the Lotus in bloom, but was a fun place to go. There is an observation tower you can go up and really see the rice art very well.

Sakitama Kofun Park

Reviewed By JerryBigBee - Berlin, Germany

This is something for people who are interested in Japans early history. The Kofun park has a number of 5th/6th century burial mounds with a small museum and reconstructed burila chamber. The peculiar keyhole shape which is unique to Japan can be observed here.
It makes a great day trip because Gyoda station is easily reached in just below one 1hr from Ueno Station and a free bicycle rental is provided by the local tourist information. Oshi castle, several shrines, and the ancient lotus park are additional sights worth visiting.

Museum of The Sakitama Ancient Burial Mounds

Reviewed By Niki S - London, United Kingdom

It is probably not the biggest attraction Saitama, however if you are in the area and have a bit of interest in (Japanese) history, it's definitely worth to visit. The museum has English brochure, but the explanation texts to each articles are written in Japanese. You can see here the archelogical artifacts from the kofuns. Next to the museum there is an old farm-house of rich peasants, which is a great example of the lifestyle some centuries ago. There are several kofuns nearby, so a visit to the museum easily can be extend to a 3-4 hours or half day program.

Onjo Castle

Reviewed By Tokugawa_Ieyasu - Fujieda, Japan

This ruins of Oshi Castle is one of the famous historical site in the Sengoku era in Japan. The Oshi Castle was the only one which Toyotomi clan could not conquer.
Now, the landmark building of the castle tower is the reproduced one because this castle was scrapped when Edo era ended by the new government. However, we still can see some of the layouts of the old castle. You may find the barrier of the main area.
I bet you can imagine that the battle was held at the site.
The Exhibitions at the museum are also available.

成田氏以後歴代の忍城主によって崇敬された、行田の守り神。癌封じ、ぼけ封じなど「封じ」にご利益があるそうなので、行ってみました。地元の人々の姿も多く、信仰を集めているようでした。のぼうの城の史跡めぐりの途中に足を延ばしてみるのもよいでしょう。

Kanko Johokan Buratto Gyoda

Reviewed By hanedasun - 東京

行田市商工センター1階にある観光案内所で、無料で自転車の貸し出しもしています。ただ常時置いている自転車は、子供を乗せる大きな前かご付きのママチャリなので、かなり重いです。しかし、行田市内は坂道はないので、とくに問題はありませんでした。
広くはありませんが、地元名産品の販売スペースもあるので、お土産を買うのにも便利です。私は利用しませんでしたが、2階には無料の休憩所もあるようです。
