We booked 5 hours in Kamakura with Eri. We met at the train station and from start to finish enjoyed her guidance. She took us to three temples, an amazing ancient cemetary, a walk on the beach, a lovely place for lunch, a visit to a swordsmith and a walk through a lively shopping district. She provided abundant information about everywhere we went and was extremely attentive to our interests. We learned a lot and definitely saw more than we would have done on our own. It was also clear that she is well-respected as a local guide and we felt that we were privileged to be with her. If we return to this part of Japan we would absolutely try to have her as a guide again. Thank you, Eri!
Dear Laulie, Thank you so much for such a wonderful review and so quickly at that! I'm so happy that we had a great time in Kamakura on such a beautiful day. We were very lucky to get to climb on the temple gate of Komyoji Temple, which was specially open to public at this time of the year. Not only the great ocean views from up on the balcony, but the recently repaired Buddhist statues which were colorfully painted really surprised and entertained us, didn't they? The amazing Naito family's graveyard and the beach walk with bare feet after that were also a lot of fun. You two were strong walkers and enjoying a considerrably long walk, that made me relieved so much. Seafood and a big omelet for lunch at a local restaurant and beautiful spring peonies at Hase Temple were also among many other attractions on the day. It was really great meeting you and thank you so much for visiting Kamakura!! Warmest regards, Eri
