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!!

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 knew how to adopte herself to our small wishes. One of our best guides all over the world Hope to meet her in our next visit.
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!!
we had a most enjoyable day in kamakura with our guide eri. she was the best guide ever! we learned so much from her, she was so warm, sweet and kind and made us feel so special! the pace of the tour was just right and by the end of the day eri was like a dear friend to us already. definitely the highlight of our japan trip!
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.
