埼玉県南部富士見市の国道254号富士見川越バイパス沿いにある大規模ショッピングモールです。最寄駅は東武東上線の鶴瀬駅ですが、2kmくらい離れているので、みんな車で来ています。そのため店舗の建物の周囲に駐車場ビルや平面の駐車場がたくさんあります。今回は店舗から遠い平面駐車場に停めたので、店舗にたどり着くまでに10分以上かかってしまいました。ユニクロやZARAから農協の直売所までいろんな種類のお店が揃っていますし、飲食施設も充実しています。通路も広くゆっくりと買い物できるようになっています。休日に家族でゆっくり買い物に行く場所です。

The Railway Museum

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!

都内近郊のスーパー銭湯の中でお風呂の種類が多くお安いと思う。岩盤カフェも良いですが、利用時に貸出される館内着と下にひく大判バスタオルとが汗臭いのが難点。ちゃんとクリーニングされてるのですが汗臭いです。お食事処はイマイチで注文方法が今時券売機で並んで買い、自分で取りに行き片付けるセルフスタイル。iPaddr座席から直接注文できるスタイルでは無いので非常に利用しにくい。お風呂やサウナ、露店風呂は良い。僻地にあるので車で行って下さい。

Kawagoe Ichibangai Shopping Street

Reviewed By Selsy - New Zealand

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.

Miyoshi PA

Reviewed By harbourchan - Hong kong

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)

Omiya Bonsai Art Museum, Saitama

Reviewed By Prepcook - Fussa, Japan

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.

明治10年に建てられた木造2階建て土蔵造りの漢方薬局で、いろは親水公園内に移築・復元されたものです。午前10時からだったので、親水公園を回ってから、訪ずれました。係りの人がとても詳しく説明してくれました。主な特徴は、この当時としては珍しく吹き抜けだったこと、背面の扉が観音扉と大坂戸であることなどです。
2階は上がれないので、すぐ見終わってしまいますが、いろは親水公園を借景として、趣のある建物に少々佇んでいるのは、気持ちいいものでした。
