In my tour, Kamakura History & neighboring area excursion, after a visit to Tsurugaoka Hachiman shrine, you walk on a moutain trail a short distance. At the beginning of the trail, there is Sasuke Inari Shrine associated with the founder of Kamakura Shogunate, Minamoto Yoritomo. Through this shrine to the next destination, the great statue of Buddha, you start to understand why Kamakura was chosen as the seat of Kamakura Shogunate. If you are interested in the first shogun, please join my tour.

As I am a 60 year old man, born in Tokyo, graduated from a university in Tokyo and worked for a leading paper wholesale company at its headquarters for 35 years, I am an Edokko or a native Tokyoite. I am familiar with various interesting places in Tokyo and the Kanto area such as historic spots, scenic beauty, entertainment, restaurants and so on. Although I basically provide several regular walking tours for visitors from abroad, I am willing to arrange your tour plan in a customized way according to your interest. If I receive your inquiry, I am ready to hear your interest and what you want to experience, and discuss your plan with you in advance.
