Synopsis

One could envy Saitamans. Their prefecture has gorgeous mountains, acres of colorful flowers, icicle displays, and a whitewater river. One city is in a national park and has a  Shrine of Wolves, plus maybe a “Mikado” connection. Another city, “Little Edo,” has lovely old buildings and “Candy Street.” However, Saitama is the butt of jokes, especially in a “dissing” manga that’s now a movie!
