One Day Trip From Tokyo: Kawagoe aka Coedo

I’ve always wanted to visit Kawagoe lately.

So basically Japanese pay ridiculous amount of money to move into an apartment.
There’s some apartment that you don’t have to pay deposit or the gratuity fee. But you are going pay the cleaning fee in the end when you are moving out.
