Though a fairly large city in its own right, Saitama has become known primarily for its proximity to the capital, Tokyo. Just a half hour away from the giant metropolis by train, a large proportion of the city's population commute to work in the capital each day. Saitama attractions remain fairly minimal, especially when compared to what lies within easy reach. Still, the city possesses a couple of pleasant parks, well-maintained and housing some of the city's main museums, music and theater venues, and academic institutions. Plan your trip to Saitama and other Japan destinations using our handy Japan trip planner.
