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

“ 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.

“ Perfect Day in Tokyo ”

Hiroshi outlined a plan for a day in Tokyo along the lines of our suggestions. He managed this perfectly and kept to the plan admirably. He was sensitive to our personal needs as well as answering all our questions in depth and with good humour. His English was excellent to the point that we did not notice he was Japanese. Hiroshi’s knowledge of Japanese history was first class, right through the Shogun era and modern times. We would commend him to you as a great guide with complete confidence. Martin and Robyn Johnson Sydney, Australia

Hiroshi:

Dear Martin and Robyn I am very happy to find you enjoyed a day in Tokyo with me. And thank you very much for very positive review about my guideing. If you have another chance to come to Japan, I am very please to spend time with you. Hope you will have great time in Australia. Best regards Hiroshi
