city, Saitama ken (prefecture), Honshu, Japan. It lies on the alluvial plain of the Ara River. An early post town, it has long been a centre of cotton fabric manufacture.

The city's woolen textile and electric industries are relatively large. Warabi is now a suburb of the Tokyo-Yokohama metropolitan area, with a rapidly increasing commuter population. Pop.
