Cycling in Kamakura

by HIDEKI

Kamakura is located   within 1 hour trip from Tokyo by train.

It was in 13th century when Minamoto no Yoritomo set up the first Samurai government here. Today, Kamakura is famous for its Zen temples with quiet gardens, seasonally flowers and colorful autumn leaves.

When you're in Kamakura, I recommend you to rent a bycicle at the rental shop near Kamakura station, which will make your tour in Kamakura  much more flexible.  You don't have to wait for a bus to Great Buddha, or stand in the packed train to Enoshima.  And you can go through the narrow backstreet in residential areas without any hustles. You may have chances to talk with the locals, too.

Hideki is a friendly guide who showed us (a group of 2) around Tokyo. He guided us around to very specific places we wanted to go, and familiarized us with the subway system. He's friendly, proficient in English, and I can't recommend him enough.

“ The Tsukiji Outer Market was a rush! ”

Very Good

My day was one of contrasts. I love to visit local food markets when I travel. Hideki deftly navigated me through the bustling and colorful Tsukiji Market. Compare that to the calm and serenity found in the Hama-rikyu Gardens and the Meiji-jingu Shinto Shrine. Combined, they made for a wonderful introduction to Tokyo, all thanks to Hideki.

“ Perfect guide ”

We had a very nice visit to the Odawara/Hakone area made much better with Mori-san (Hideki) as our guide. Quite simply, he is everything you would want - knowledgeable, totally helpful, friendly, energetic and flexible. We like that he will take you off the beaten path, if desired. And . . . his English is excellent, so that we could ask any type of questions of him.
