Overview

Kamakura is one of the most popular places for tourist because of its long history and many scenic spots . I will take you to 4 most popular places among foreigners which are Hohkoku-ji, Tsurugaoka-Hachiman-gu, Koh-Toku-In(Big Budda), and Hase-dera. But if you have any specific place wish to visit, please let me know. I will make a plan for you. We will take bus, train and walking in this tour.

What to Expect

Kamakura was political center of Japan about 800years ago. Due to this fact, Kamakura has mixed atmosphere of old and current .Visitors can enjoy this town from his/her own interest. If you like history, yes you will find some new things and deepen your knowledge. If you like shopping, you can find unique items. If you like eating, yes you can find fantastic food. If you like to enjoy flowers, Kamakura is one of the best places to enjoy. You can see different flowers in every season.
4 places I chose have different taste and tourists can enjoy different atmosphere and essence of Japanese culture. Hohkoku-ji is a small temple but it is famous for bamboo grave and no other places can give quiet and fantastic feeling. Tsurugaoka-Hachiman-gu is the symbol of Kamakura. Everybody visit here to pray for good fortune. Also it has historical buildings and garden. Then we will take lunch. After Lunch the first place to visit is Koh-Toku-In which is a temple with Big Buddha . Everybody takes pictures with Big Buddha for good memory. And the last place is Hase-Dera which is famous for flowers and you can enjoy different flowers in all seasons. Also, this temple has a observation deck to see coast of Kamakura. You can see nice view and breeze good air.
It takes about 1 hour from central Tokyo. And visitors can enjoy totally different world.

Important

Kamakura is very popular town for Japanese and foreigners. People find new things whenever they visit this town. It means you will never tired of Kamakura.
Also, because of popularity, sometimes we will see crowds in some popular places. Therefore, time management is not easy in high season and weekend.
Also, location of some temples and shrines are in mountain area. It means there are a lot of slopes and stairs Hohkoku-ji and Koh-Toku-In is flat. So anybody can visit and enjoy. But Tsurugaoka-Hachiman-gu and Hase-dera have a lot of stairs. Especially Hase-Dera is not good for guests with difficulty in walking. read more

“ Excellent guide ”

Hiroshi was an excellent guide. We took tours of the history museum of Edo/Tokyo and we were very impressed with his depth of knowledge and his insight. We also visited some local temples and the famous fish market. He continued his high level of teaching and have very useful insights into the culture as well. His English was also exemplary.

Hiroshi:

Dear Brannon Thank you very much for writing an excellent review of my tour. It was very enjoyable tour with your family. Unfortunately Sumo practice was not able to see but taking pictures with Sumo wrestler will be unforgettable memory for James. I would like to express my gratitude for listening my talk very sincerely during the tour. I hope memory of this tour will be shared with your family and friends and more people may come to Japan to become fan of Japan. Thank you very much to choose me as your guide and have a good flight back to your home. Best regards Hiroshi

“ A tour well worth the money ”

Although I had an initial problem meeting Hiroshi, he was worth the problem. Hiroshi was extremely knowledgeable about Yokohama in general and Japanese society and culture in particular. He was most willing to adapt the schedule to accommodate my requests about places to visit. I really enjoyed our lunch in Chinatown

Hiroshi:

Dear Judith Thank you very much for your comment. I enjoyed a tour with you in Yokohama. I am very happy to find you satisfied my service. I hope I can be your guide again. Thank you and Best regards

“ A day of sightseeing in Tokyo ”

What an incredible day we had with Hiroshi. From the moment we met him at our hotel we felt very relaxed and comfortable with him. He took us to all the places we wanted to go and he also took us to some special shops that we would never have known to visit. His knowledge of everything is amazing and it was such a wonderful day. Wish we could hire him everyday to walk around with us 😀. Hiroshi is the best tour guide if you have small children as he’s very patient and very friendly. He has been so helpful in planning our whole trip to Japan and I will be telling all my family and friends to book a tour with him!!! 5 star experience with Hiroshi. Thankyou so much.

Hiroshi:

Dear Daniela Thank you very much for your excellent review. I enjoyed a lot with your family. Everyone was so nice and friedly to me. I tried to give you information to make your trip smoother and I hope you will have wonderful time in Japan. If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am more than happy to give you any help. Best regards

“ Three excellent tours with a very well informed guide ”

We spent three fantastic days with Hiroshi exploring contemporary and traditional Japanese culture and visiting Hakone. He was a well informed, interesting and engaging guide who was happy to answer all our random questions about life in Japan. Hiroshi was very organised and made sure that we saw lots of different places in the days we spent with him. He was also invaluable in the run up to the trip, giving us advice on money, travel arrangements and places to visit. I would wholeheartedly recommend Hiroshi as a guide.

Hiroshi:

Dear Sarah Thank you very much for your great review. I am very happy to find you spent good time with me. It was my first time to have a kid as my customer. The happiest thing for me was to see Pat's smile in any places. I hope my guiding supported him to know about Japan as well as you. Please make another chance to visit Japan and to meet again.
