What to Expect

On this tour, in the morning, we'll visit Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine which was founded by the first shogun of the first military government in Japanese history, and Great Buddha, which was constructed in the 13th century and is a symbol of Kamakura with a tender smile on its face. Then we'll take the Enoden Line, one of the most famous and characterful local railways in Japan, to Enoshima station. A little walk from the station is Enoshima Island, an island of the legend of a dragon and sea goddess, with three tutelary shrines for three goddesses of marine transportation, fishing, and traffic. The island has recently been very popular among many young couples as a power spot as well. On top of the island we can climb up on a lighthouse with a nickname of Sea Candle, the best scenary lookout to view the ocean and the coast line of Sagami Bay, and if you are lucky, Mt. Fuji!!

“ A wonderful day in Kamakura with Eri ”

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!

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 o... read more

“ Beautiful Kamakura ”

On May 29th of 2019 we (the group of 6 people from Russia and USA) booked the trip to Kamakura with Eri. Our meeting pount was at Kamakura Station. There were a lot of people as usual at the station, but we recognized Eri immediately as she was wearing beatiful kimono and desperately looking to find our group. That was so nice, elegant, unusual that we understood from the start that our tour will be great. Eri was extremely interesting narrator, she told us many interesting facts about Kamakura and Japan in general. She was willing to answer all our questions, even the stupid ones. Eri helped us to organise a very fast traditional luch as this was our requiremet in order to come back to Tokyo in time. Everyone from our group have enjoyed time with Eri and we are very thankful for her for t... read more

Eri:

Dear Yulia, Thank you so much for such a great review! It was a little chilly on our tour day, however everyone of your group was so cheerful that I felt warm inside from the moment I met you all. It was a lot of fun to help you get green tea at a shop on Komachi-dori shopping street and to explain how to make greentea in the bus on our way to Great Buddha. You were great listners! And we enjoyed this simple, hot buckwheat noodle with only chopped green onion on top, which we ordered because it was the fastest to be served at busy lunch time. And it turned out quite right to save the time. I remember many more fun moments with you during the tour. It was great meeting you all and I hope you are enjoying a nice cup of greentea! Best wishes, Eri

“ Excellent Day in Kamakura ”

Eri is a fantastic guide! She is kind, knowledgeable, and a great communicator. She was very patient and thoughtful with our 3 year old. The day was like being shown around town by a friend. We really enjoyed taking in Kamakura with Eri and highly recommend her to all!

Eri:

Dear Tom, Thank you so much for your review! I'm very happy to read it. Walking with a three-year-old kid was a lot of fun. She made everyone around her smile and she learned this Japanese word "kawaii". Yes she was "totemo kawaii", very cute and a good girl during the tour. We leisurely enjoyed our lunch time at a noodle restaurant and got to take a photo with the 24th generation sword smith at Masamune Sword and Blade Workshop. Thank you for visiting Kamakura and it was really great meeting you all! Best wishes, Eri

“ Fabulous day in Kamakura with Eri ”

We are a family of 3 who took a day tour with Eri in Kamakura. She was simply lovely and easy to communicate with. Upon arrival at the station, she was easy to find, impeccably dressed in a lovely kimono. We visited several temples as well as walking through some lovely back streets giving us an intimate view of local life. Her English was terrific and she even had handouts with her as she gave us a detailed history of all the sights. We have taken several tours all over the globe and we all agreed she was one of the best guides we have ever had. Be aware that this is a walking tour. Our Fitbit registered 6.8 miles by foot that day.

Eri:

Dear Helene, Thank you so much for your review, which was great, and I'm very happy to know that you all enjoyed the tour. The weather was perfect for a walking tour on the day, wasn't it? Although the buds of cherry trees were still stiff, we enjoyed magnolias, Japanese quince and some other seasonal floweres here and there on our way around. I was surprised and happy at a lunch reatautrant, because all of you loved a bowl of soba, buckwheat noodles so much that you finished them with big smiles. I hope this tour will be remembered as a good memory of Japan for you for long. It was really great meeting you all! Best wishes, Eri

“ Wonderful day with Eri in Kamakura ”

We had a great day with Eri in Kamakura. Not only her knowledge was so good. She share it with such a wonderful way and with so much enthusiasm and love for her country. She also was so patient with us when looking at the different shops around letting us understand what we see and what we eat. I highly recommend to Eri as Kamakura tour guide!!

Eri:

Dear Michael, Thank you so much for your review! Althouth it was only a 3.5-hour tour, we enjoyed a lot of talking while getting around the places, didn't we? You were listening to my explanation very earnestly, even taking a note sometimes, which showed your deep interest in our history and culture. It was such a fruitful time and so great meeting you two! Best wishes, Eri
