“ Awesome Day in Kamakura ”

We had a great day with Eri in Kamakura. She met us at the train station in the morning and away we went. Eri brought a tremendous amount of knowledge about the history, the architecture and the culture of Japan and Kamakura. We even had discussions about local flowers and plants. We walked back roads and paths that allowed us to have a view of daily life that most tourists don't experience. We gained some wonderful information and perspectives that have made our trip much more enriched. We highly recommend Eri. She brings so much energy and enthusiasm to the day that you feel that you have known each other for years. Our day was awesome. If you want to experience that as well, you need to contact Eri.

Eri:
Dear Mike, I t was so nice meeting you and Suzanne and getting to show you around Kamakura! It seems like even the rain helped us enjoy walking and talking on the way. Especially the soba we had for lunch will be an unforgettable memory with you two in Kamakura. Thank you so very much!

“ Kamakura with Extraordinary Eri!! ”

Kamakura is magical made even more so with our wonderful guide, Eri! Eri had a wonderful day planned for us which she altered on the fly when my mom's physical limitations needed it. She took us to wonderful shrines and temples and shared with us about each place in great detail. Eri is so knowledgeable!! It was just the three of us all day and spending the day with Eri was like spending the day with a good friend! I asked about Japanese customs and ate cold soba noodles for the first time- delicious! Eri was tireless, patient, and enthusiastic and I know she had so many more magical and wonderful places to show us! I look forward to going back and exploring Kamakura some more with her! I highly recommend spending the day with Eri in Kamakura!! It will be one of the highlights of your trip like it was for my mom and me!! Thank you, Eri!!

Eri:
Dear Evelyn and Marlu, Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! I was very happy to show you around Kamakura at the best time of cherry blossom season. We took a lot of photos in front of those beautiful cherry blossoms, didn't we? And at the soba restaurant, we enjoyed complimentary cherry pink ice cream by showing our cherry blossom photos to the waitress, which was the condition to get the special service. It was such a surprise, wasn't it? I really hope you will come back to Kamakura some time and explore many more nice places with me as your guide again. It was great meeting you two!! Sincerely, Eri

“ Eri is a fantastic tour guide and host ”

The day we (5 English speaking adults from western Canada) spent with Eri was absolutely fantastic, even though the weather was not very cooperative. Eri speaks excellent English which was essential for our party. Our positive experience with Eri took place over several weeks. Eri accommodated us by changing her calendar, provided travel details to and from our accommodations, made lunch reservations at an amazing restaurant (we had special dietary needs), provided interesting historical and cultural details along the tour, and gave each person a keepsake at the end of the tour. If you are looking for a conscientious, kind, and interesting tour guide, Eri is for you.

Eri:
Dear Karen, It was so kind of you to write such a nice review for my tour! The tour was memorable for me too, because the day was Buddha's birthday, and we could see beautifully decorated alters with baby Buddha in the center in the Buddhist temples we visited, couldn't we? The lunch we had was also great. I was happy you were all enjoying the food talking leisurely. Thank you so much for visiting Kamakura. It was great meeting you all!! Best wishes, Eri

“ Amazing tour of Kamakura! ”

Eri was an amazing guide and so thoughtful. She went above and beyond. Eri was very knowledgeable about local history. She took us to all the great sites (great buddha, shrines, ect.), but also to a few hiking trails. The lunch spot for soba was great. Eri also even wrote down the details of how to take the train to our next destination. Overall, she really stood out as excellent!

Eri:
Dear Vanessa, It was such a wonderful day with you two in Kamakura. I was very happy you were enjoying everything even the rain as the part of it. I will always remember you whenever I climb Hansobo and see the statues of the goblins. You mentioned they looked like the Flying Monkeys from "the Wizard of Oz" and we all laughed. Thank you so much for visiting Kamakura and for such a nice review. It was great meeting you two!! Best wishes, Eri

“ Best Introduction to Kamakura ”

Eri has a warm and bubbly personality with a wealth of knowledge about the culture and history of Kamakura. Her tour was very informative but also a lot of fun. My family group included three young adults who can be difficult to please. They all loved Eri and enjoyed the day immensely. We saw all the major shrines and sites but walked through the backstreets to get a better picture of Kamakura. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at a soba noodle restaurant and Eri explained the etiquette of eating with chopsticks. This will come in very useful as we continue our trip in Japan. Eri established contact with me as soon as the tour was booked and planned an itinerary that suited our family group. She took some wonderful photos throughout the day and emailed them to me after the tour. I cannot recommend Eri highly enough as a guide and feel honoured to have spent the day with her.

Eri:
Dear Lynn, I cannot thank you enough for sending such a nice review for my site! The tour culminated when Leia found a little squirrel in a tree just beside the Great Buddha. And we all witnessed a kite suddenly flew down to aim food in one of the passers-by's hand in the crowd of Komachi shopping street, didn't we? They were such wonderful surprises we had all together. I hope you'll enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan as we did in Kamakura. Again, thank you so much! Eri
