The Railway Museum was built in Onari, Saitama City as the centerpiece of the JR East 20th Anniversary Memorial Project. This is a railway museum, and it preserves both the physical elements and heritage of Railways in Japan and abroad. It also preserves materials relating to JR East and the JNR privatization reforms. The Railway Museum also conducts research and development. This is a historical museum that tells the industrial history of the development of the railway system while introducing the historical background of each period with displays of actual models. It is also an educational museum. Children can learn about and experience railway principles, systems, and the latest technologies (including future plans) through models, simulations, and play equipment.
Nice train models from different historical periods. Also interesting for a foreigner is to observe the infatuation of Japanese toward railway system and trains. Avoid the crowd and visit only at off peak days. Food tend to be a little expensive. Parking fine but needs to walk a bit.
DON'T MISS OUT the miniature railway show. The best attraction of this museum. It was a new addition just completed in July 2017. Well worth your time!

A large-scale festival that sees the shopping district around Kamifukuoka Station ornately decorated with about 270 bamboo ornaments and visited by about 160,000 people over two days. Various events take place, such as a bamboo decoration competition and Awa dance and Yosakoi contests. Many stalls are opened up, and it has become a summer tradition rooted in the region as a celebration of the citizens' hometown.

This historic street is pretty, but small. It was also busy with traffic rather than being a pedestrian area. I was disappointed that the Kawagoe Kurazukuri Museum was closed, as I would have liked to learn more about these buildings.
Some of the shops have nice things in them, and there are some interesting snack foods. There are also some interesting temples and shrines in the side streets. If you are only visiting Tokyo and want to see a bit of old Japan, then a half day trip to Kawagoe might suit. If you're travelling elsewhere in Japan, there are better opportunities to see preserved streets (eg Takayama, Kurashiki).
I combined my visit to Kawagoe with a visit to the Omiya bonsai village, so all up, it was a reasonably good day out.

It's a great place for different kind of people to go (it is suitable for all age range)
There is a Starbucks there which has many different kind of flavour. My son has tried a chocolate drink and it's really cheap (¥170) and delicious.
There is also an oil station for car.
You should all go to this place when you are desperate for food because there's a food court that is quite large.
In this stop, there's a shop that sell sweet-potato related food only, we would strongly recommend you all to give it a go even sweet potato wasn't your "thing".
There's another cafe shop in the station which prepare coffee on the spot for you. The coffee bean they used are organic, and they'd do distil coffee, which gives a very strong taste (taste best without sugar)
There's also free drinks available in the station for those who are thirsty) cold/hot water, green tea and another kind of tea which I have forgotten the name of which)

This small museum is best reached by train as it is only a five minute walk from the nearest station. Admission is low but you absolutely get a huge return in terms of quality.
There are a combination of indoor/outdoor exhibits so plan to go on a clear day. The venue was crowded on the weekend so perhaps a week day visit would be more relaxing.
There is a small café on the second floor which gives an excellent overview of the outdoor layout. The café is only for drinks and snacks, no meals are served but there is a tea house with a light lunch menu quite nearby.
The trees themselves are gorgeous and range in age from relatively young to ancient.
There are ample notations in English and even a bilingual book available for a very small fee. Photos are allowed ONLY in designated areas, people tend not to notice or pay attention to the signs. It is always best to remember that you are a guest of the museum and respect for the signs is a part of that. Young children may not be the ideal guests without close supervision as they may want to touch the trees or pull off flowers so parents use discretion please. Older kids may really enjoy the periodic workshops held to start their own bonsai. Demonstrations are also given in the care of the trees.
The location is excellent because it is in a neighborhood originally dedicated to Bonsai gardeners and some of these Gardens still exist.
