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!!

“ Kamakura History ”

Eri was easy to communicate with right from the start. Quick to respond to any queries I had too. She met us with a bright smile and was very patient with us. She regaled us with the many stories of Shoguns and battles and tragic love. It was a wonderful way to learn of the past and to marvel at the monuments attesting to those tales. Truly a delight to share it with Eri. Thank you

Eri:

Dear Ai, It's so kind of you to write such a great review! It was a great day for me with you all, too. Especially when we visited Egara Tenjin Shrine, which is a shinto shrine dedicated to the god of learning, your teenage son and daughter were praying sincerely for their progress of school works. I was impressed so much I prayed to the god for them too. Although we sometimes needed an umbrella on the day, it wasn't so bad and the drizzle was rather comfortable, wasn't it? It was great meeting you all and I hope to see you again on your next visit to Japan!! Best regards, Eri

“ Amazing Kamakura Tour ”

It was a very good trip with a very experienced guide Eri. Even though weather was very hot, she kept on explaining every detail with a great energy. We are a family with two babies and Eri was very understanding and patient about their needs. Since we are Muslims, she arranged us a very nice lunch in a beautiful restaurant. We wish to see some more places soon with Eri, especially “Enoshima Island”. We recommend her to everyone who are looking for a joyful trip. Thank you very much for everything Eri...

Eri:

Dear Musa, Thank you so much for your review!! That was a great trip inspite of the very hot weather. What I'd been concerned about was almost no problem due to the very good care you and your wife took of your small children. I was very happy to see your son was enjoying running around and watching ants on top of Cape Inamuragasaki, where we had a nice ocean breeze. I'm looking forward to showing you all Enoshima Island next time. It was great meeting you and your family! Best regards, Eri

“ Sublime Kamakura ”

Eri made our family’s day trip to sublime Kamakura most memorable. She is enthusiastic, charming, flexible, and has excellent English skills. Eri shared with us that she studied history at university, and her command of Japanese history was evident throughout the tour. She explained rituals, filled us in on legends, and pointed out iconic images and design features at the Zen temples and Shinto shrines we visited. Travelling with our teenage son, we were concerned that his attention might wane, but Eri kept us all engaged. Have you ever been inside a giant bronze Buddha? Have you ever seen the 800-year-old workshop of Japan’s greatest sword smith, Masamune? Have you sipped macha in a forest of tall bamboo trees where the silence is broken only by leaves rustling in the breeze? We have Eri... read more

Eri:

Dear Ted, Thank you so much for your review with many kind words! I'm very happy to read it. The highlight of the tour was the surprise your son got at Masamune Sword and Blade Workshop, wasn't it? It was so lucky for him to have a chance to hold a real sword, which happens only once in a blue moon. I hope he treasures the memory along with other sceans we enjoyed on the day in Kamakura. It was really great meeting you all! Best wishes, Eri

“ Thank you Eri for interesting tour. ”

We would highly recommend Eri for everyone who is looking for quality tour.

Eri:

Dear Oksana, Thank you so much for your review! I myself had a great time with your family. Your suggestion of starting the tour one hour earlier worked very well, didn't it? We could enjoy the quietness of the bamboo grove with matcha green tea leisurely at Hokokuji Temple and didn't have to wait in line at the very popular restaurant to have great lunch. Hydrangeas were beautiful everywhere and there was a nice breeze blowing all through the tour. Again thank you very much for visiting Kamakura and it was great meeting you all!! Best wishes, Eri

“ Wonderful Tour Of Kamakura ”

We spent the day with Eri visiting the sights in Kamakura. Eri has a delightful personality and a great sense of humor. She is very knowledgeable of Japanese history and culture. She takes the time to describe what you're seeing and the wealth of history in each place you may visit. Eri is very patient and will answer any questions you may have. We also enjoyed a nice lunch with her during the tour. She kept us on schedule and helped us get back to the train station at the end of our tour. Thank you for a great experience!

Eri:

Dear Richard, Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! And thank you for the nice photos you sent me. Each of the photos gets me back to the great time we shared in Kamakura. With refreshing breeze around us we could enjoy the fresh green when we strolled through the residential areas dropping by those historical places. And your happy smiles during the lunch time made me happy too. It was so great meeting you and your family!! Sincerely, Eri
