While staying in the area, be sure to spend a little time taking in surrounding neighborhoods like Omiya, Saitama and Kawagoe.
There are plenty of unique cultural highlights in and around Ageo. Take a guided tour, admire the interior of the building or simply enjoy the fascinating displays at the John Lennon Museum.
Nearby Saitama Stadium 2002 is the perfect place to catch a game of soccer, and to see local legends, the Urawa Red Diamonds, in action. On match days follow the procession of red and black, to the stadium, then after the final siren sounds, join fellow sports lovers at a nearby pub, bar or cafe and relive the action over a friendly drink or two.
For a real taste of this fascinating part of the world, think about staying close by in one of the area’s many accommodation options. The Kawagoe Prince Hotel, the Palace Hotel Omiya and the Hotel Route-Inn Ageo are just three of the best places to find a warm welcome and a good night’s rest.
