Kawagoe City's homepage is in both English and Japanese.
There are some interesting Kawagoe information sites available:
Two of Kawagoe's best hotels are online:
NTT has general information in English about Japan at this
The Japan Travel Bureau Company has a Travel Japan Site Homepage which includes information in English and Japanese about Saitama.
Kids Web Japan is an excellent link to Japan for the younger set.
These weather forecast links are available only in Japanese. Look at the Saitama Prefecture link for Kawagoe weather.
This is the Tochigi Prefecture link.
These weather links give, in addition to the current day's weather, a six-day forecast. Four items are given for each day.
Also, for the current day an indication is given of how quickly laundry will dry.
Tokyo-area weather forecasts are available in English. The sites below give advance forecasts in English, but the forecasts do not necessarily agree with each other. It is also unnerving to see weather forecasts giving projected reports for the previous day in Tokyo, even though these sites claim to be giving the latest information:
Map of Kanto area of Japan
The yen/dollar and other exchange rates change daily. Visit this site for foreign exchange information.
Please let me know of corrections to be made or additional Kawagoe sites to be added. Thanks!
