What to Expect

If you get a little bit tired of skyscrapers and subways, why not take a short day trip to Kamakura, where you can enjoy the fresh air and the spirit of Samurai? Kamakura is only an  hour away from Tokyo, very easily accessed. The journey starts from Kamakura station, where we take the Enoden line, the retro looking tram. The view from the windowsill is also fascinating, you would feel like you are watching those animations from Ghibli. We are visiting the Hase-dera temple, and then the Kotoku-in temple famous for the Great Buddha statue. After visiting the Tsurugaoka-Hachimangu shrine, we will walk along the Komachi street where you can try some snacks while shopping for souvenirs.

Highlights

Enoden (Enoshima Electric Railway)

Hasedera Temple was constructed on the mountainside with views of both the ocean and city. The beautiful garden is blooming with hydrangeas and irises all year round and as such, the temple has also become acclaimed as the ‘flower temple’.

Kamakura is a city located in Kanagawa Prefecture, nestled in between the mountains and the ocean and considerably abundant with nature. The Great Buddha of the Kotoku-in Temple has been designated as a National Treasure.

Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu Shrine

Komachi-dori is a popular street attracting everyone from local residents to tourists. Going past the landmark of the red torii gate, you will find the street filled with attractive shops and cafes. You will have no trouble choosing souvenirs from the many famous local products.

“ Customized Tour of Kamakura with Kids! ”

We had a lovely day with Eri! My family (including twin 4 year old boys) took the train (which she helped us with finding the correct train/time) from Tokyo to see the Daibutsu, and with the help and knowledge of Eri, we saw the Big Buddha and so much more! Traveling with kids is so different and she helped make it fun for them and interesting and relevant for us. We first went to the main shrine, Tsurugaoko Hachimangu, where our boys could have been bored. But we fed the birds/fish to change the pace. We also took a detour bc my husband wanted to look at a woodblock store on our way to the next stop. She helped him communicate with the shopkeeper and we ended up with a beautiful piece of art. Seeing the Daibustu itself is pretty amazing, but had she not been with us we would have missed the opportunity to actually go inside! The best part was because I wanted a chance to see Mt. Fuji - she took us to the seafront at Inamuragasaki. it was a cloudy day so we didn't get the view we'd hoped for but my boys got to play in the sand and water for a bit! They're still talking about it! Eri also arranged lunch reservations for us so we could taste the very delicate and oishii baby sardines - sounds weird but try it! Overall Eri was helpful, patient, knowledgable, kind and we highly recommend her services!

“ Kamakura tour October 2017 ”

Our experience with Kahoko is very good. She has a good command of English and knowledge of the history of the places we visited. There were six of us in our group, and we highly recommend her to my friends who plan to visit Japan specially Kamakura and the neighboring places went to. Thank you Kahoko and thank you Triplelights. Mrs. Concepcion Regino

“ Beautiful Kamakura with a Beautiful Guide ”

We did a walking tour of Kamakura with Eri during our recent cruise around Japan. Eri was so helpful in advance of the tour, giving us exact instructions on how to take the train from the port in Yokohama. The tour was wonderful. Eri met us at the train station. She was wearing a traditional kimono, which was very nice. She gave us so much good information about the various sites. Her English is excellent. We stopped for a great lunch in a noodle restaurant. We highly recommend Eri for a great tour of Kamakura.
