About Kumagaya

Surrounded by mountains, bordered by rivers and blessed with space, Kumagaya (熊谷市, Kumagaya-shi) is a hidden jewel of Japan. Located just north of Tokyo in Saitama, the city continues its historical role as a transport hub, plays host to the largest summer festival in the Kanto region and features one of Japan's top three Buddhist temples. Free from the hustle and bustle of the capital, Kumagaya offers the perfect taste of local Japan.
