Warabi Hata Matsuri

The "Warabi Hata Festival" has been held since 1951 in Warabi City, where the cotton industry thrived from the late Edo period. Originally it was an event to pray for the prosperity of the textile industry, and it has since come to be referred to as one of the three major festivals of Warabi. The festival is centered round August 7th, the date that the man who developed the cotton industry, Takahashi Shingoro, began his textile business, and takes place over a period of four days. In addition to Tanabata decorations in the shopping arcade at the west exit of Warabi Station, there is great activity with a variety of events such as shows, teodori dance, and mystery tours...

蕨の機織り業の始まりの日が旧暦の7月7日にちなんで、機織りと七夕を祝うようになった祭りです。日本画の七夕飾りが特に魅力的で、外国人にも受けるように思われます。積極的に訪日外国人観光客にもアピールすべきだと思いました。

Warabi City Museum of History and Folklore

Reviewed By KenOzKen - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Warabi is the small city in Saitama which joins in some part of history of Edo era few hundred years ago, because the oldest street to Kyoto i.e. Nakasendo goes through the city.
The museum presents not only the history of the old town but also the current history of the WW2 and post war era.
It would be an interesting place to know the Japanese soceity in Micro level.

Oarata Kotsu Park

Reviewed By shirojiro - Saitama Prefecture, Japan

蕨(わらび)駅と西川口駅の線路伝いのちょうど中間にある自転車の練習をするための公園です。自動車の駐車場はありません。路上駐車もすぐ通報されます。自動車教習所のコースを小さくした様なもので、信号のある交差点、坂道、カーブ、悪路、踏切などがあり、交通標識もついていますので、自転車の練習に最適です。自転車も補助輪のついたものや、大人がささえるバーが後ろに伸びたものなど、いろいろな種類の自転車を月曜日以外の10時~16時まで1回40分貸してくれます。小さなお子さんの自転車の練習と、交通標識、交通ルールを覚えるのにとても役に立つと思います。
公園のまんなかにC11形の蒸気機関車がありますが、年に1回SLまつりも開催されます。

Sangakuin Temple

Reviewed By KenOzKen - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

It may be difficult to find this place for the first time.
This place is recently mainly used for funeral nowadays.
The big temple is astonishing and makes you really feel you are in Japan.
If you are a imaginative person, it will be easy for you to make up many story from this place by the atmosphere.

Warabi Honjin Ruins

Reviewed By BEN123西宮 - 西宮

蕨宿は旧中山道六十九次の内、江戸(日本橋)から数えて2番目の宿場町です。JR京浜東北線「蕨駅西口」から徒歩約15分のところにあります。4月に埼玉に行った時に久しぶりに散策してみました。本陣とは、大名、公家等の休宿泊所で庶民は利用できなかったとのことです。蕨宿には2つの本陣(加兵衛家、五郎兵衛家)があり、現在、加兵衛家の跡地に「蕨本陣」のモニュメントが建設されています。本陣が残っているわけではありません。蕨観光のメインスポットである蕨市立歴史民俗資料館の隣ですので共に見学されては如何でしょうか?

Warabieki Opening Monument

Reviewed By MMMMOK - Hyogo Prefecture, Japan

蕨駅西口側の階段を下りた場所に大きな石碑が立っていました。階段にも歩道にも邪魔をしない場所に目立たずひっそりと立っている印象でした。わざわざ足を止める人も無く、読み辛い碑文と相俟って忘れられてしまいそうな碑でした。
