“ Kamakura tour exceeded expectations, which were already high ”

Kudos to Eri Yusa, our guide, and TripleLights for making our Kamakura tour the best day of our 11 days in Japan. Friends recommended an excursion from Tokyo to Kamakura and we went with that recommendation. We were fortunate, by sheer luck, to find TripleLights and Eri to make our trip so enjoyable and rewarding. Why was it so successful? --The warmth, sense of humor, friendliness and knowledge of Eri; --communication and follow-up from Eri so we could easily take the train from Tokyo to Kamakura and be met at the station by her without any glitches; --selecting the best temples & shrines and other attractions and timing the walking tour so that everything on our agenda was accomplished without hurrying. Crowds were present, but they were easily navigated. --going overtime to accomodate our plans without forcing speed or overlooking any planned stops. Eri and TripleLights are simply the best. You cannot do better in our opinion, and we went on seven different walking tours while in Japan and Hong Kong.

Eri:
Dear George, In front of me now are the photos of you and Lana taken at places we visited in Kamakura. Every one of them makes me happy and remember the enjoyable moment and time of the day. It was so nice meeting you two and I hope the Kamakura tour will be a good memory of your stay in Japan!! Best wishes, Eri

“ Awesome Time at Kamakura! ”

We had a wonderful time with Eri. Being a local, Eri was very knowledgeable of the history, culture and legends of Kamakura. She speaks English extremely well and she made sure we were comfortable and did not feel rushed at all. My kids (ages 9 & 13) loved Eri. While we waited for our dishes at the table during lunch, she gave each of us a beautiful packet of origami paper and started showing us how to make ninja stars. Even though our tour passed the 5 hr mark, Eri still made sure we saw everything as per our itinerary and at the end of the tour, waited at the train platform with us until the train arrived and still stayed until the train departed. We highly recommend Eri as a guide. She's fantastic, warm, friendly, funny and a great photographer too! Eri, thank you for showing us around Kamakura.

Eri:
Dear Peggy, Thank you for such a warm and kind review!! It was great to get to know all of your family and to show you around Kamakura in the beautiful hydrangea season. All the photos I took show the happy faces of each of your family and I'm so happy to see them. It was great meeting you all, and I hope you'll enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan like we did in Kamakura! Sincerely, Eri

Eri:
Dear Avi, Thank you so much for your review! You were a great driver to visit Kamakura and Enoshima Island all the way from Tokyo with Hanna. It was such a beautiful day, and after visiting Great Buddha we enjoyed the great view of Sagami Bay from Enoshima Island, didin't we? I really hope to see you again on your next visit!

“ 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
