Genji Pond at Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine in KamakuraGenji Pond at Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine in KamakuraIt was hot but very fine day.  I had a very good time with gests from the US.  I didn’t know there were such greedy carps and snapping turtles in Genji Pond at Tsurugaoka Hachimangu in Kamakura.  Genji Pond was full of lotus at this time of the year.  We also enjoyed tea ceremony at Jyomyoji Temple.

“ An amazing tour guide! ”

2 years ago Traveler: Pinkie -   Tour Guide: Ryu

We had a great tour to Kamakura with Ryu. He was punctual, friendly, knowledgeable, and was great with our kids. We were a family of 8 people that included 3 kids (twin 6-year-olds and a 12-year-old). We went to all the places we were interested in and had time for shopping. We are from the US and understood Ryu perfectly. We never felt lost or rushed. The tour was great!
