Kamakura is a very healing city, which became the capital of Samurai at the end of the 12th century, and has a lot of temples where we can see lovely flowers.
We will ride a train for approximately an hour or so from Tokyo/Yokohama/Kawasaki area to visit there.
Appreciating the flowers, some temples and shrines, we can also enjoy the beautiful twilight seaview.
Feel free to personalize this offer with Yoko.
We will visit the typical temples and shrines in Kamakura. Even you're not a Buddhist nor a Shintoist, I guess you can feel the soothing power of the ancient capital. You can have a relaxing time there. About the Bamboo temple, we will go to the less crowded but nice one.
About the shopping options, it is possible to visit the places after visiting the temples/shrines in the evening, because some stores of Komachi Street are opened till 19:00.

The hydrangeas are beautiful during the rainy season, so I'm giving a SPECIAL DISCOUNT now.
We will walk a lot, so please wear walking shoes like sneakers.
(If you don't want to, please tell me the places you'd like to visit and I will arrange it that way.)
In some temples, you're supposed to take off your shoes when getting in the buildings to keep the places clean, so please be ready for that.
It is optional, but I wish you would have Matcha, Japanese tea, at Joumyoji where we can appreciate it while looking at a Zen garden or at Tsuruoka Hachimangu.
There is also a place that you can make your own Matcha if you would like.
Kamakura is extremely crowded, so sometimes you might not be able to have a seat on the buses or trains.
If you would like all the options, it might take an extra hour. I love you to see the most of Kamakura, so about the extra hour, I would only ask for the necessary transportation fare. read more

Yoko was an excellent tour guide. She devised a tour with our interests as well as “must sees” as a newbie to Japan. Yoko is extremely organized and knowledgeable. Our time with her was well spent. We learned a lot and would definitely recommend Yoko for an enjoyable tour of Tokyo.
Thank you for a wonderful review. I had a great day with both of you. When I see works of Yayoi Kusama, I will remember you and the wonderful conversations we had that day. Nikko is also an amazing place to visit for an art fan like you, so please come again. Thank you again!!
As stated in earlier review. Perfect guide for perfect trip
Thank you so much for your review, Mr. McGuire. It was a great pleasure for me to guide you, Kelly, Kirsten and Jordan, Tokyo, Nikko and Lake Kawaguchiko. All of you were so intelligent, beautiful and so sweet, so I had a great time during the three days. I'll be looking forward to seeing you coming back with them or your other grandchildren. Please take care till then. Thank you again for the wonderful days!!
We had a good day with Yoko exploring all aspects of our local surroundings as per an itinerary we had designed. The day was cold and eventually wet, but we continued through our itinerary despite the elements. It was a long day but we managed to see everything that we had set out to see and explore. Yoko was very knowledgeable and was able to provide the context details that made the journey more interesting.
Thank you very much for your review. It was too bad it started to rain but we dropped by to get umbrellas even though some of you didn't like to use them. I hope you could find something interesting at Sekaido and enjoyed your stay in Japan. Sakura (Cherry blossoms) are very beautiful in Spring, so please come to see them in the future. Please take care!!
Yoko was very knowledgeable and very patient with my youngest who complained all day about walking. She took us to soo many different sights and taught us about why the Japanese do what they do and showed us how to cleanse ourselves before entering a temple. Sometimes she did walk super fast ahead of us and would be talking so we couldn’t hear but she was overall amazing.
Thank you for your review. It must be tough for your younger daughter when she couldn't sleep well and had jet lag but I was quite amazed that her sister agreed to walk the extra block to enjoy the view . I walked ahead of you when we went to the Disney Store and I told your husband that I would go to the counter ahead of you to ask if they dealt with the tickets but maybe you didn't get that message. Sometimes some of you seemed to be completely indifferent so I started to explain. Well, we did cover a lot in a day. I hope you enjoyed Disney Resort.
Yoko was very nice, on time, flexible to my preferences, and spent extra time to make sure I got to do everything I wanted to do. She's an excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable on the history of the city and tourist attractions.
Thank you so much for a great review, Rebecca san. I was so glad to guide you around because you appreciated each site so much. Not only sites, we had good time having Okonomiyaki and geniune Japanese sweets and Matcha together. Thank you so much for your generiosity, too. There are still so much to see, so I wish I could see you soon again. Till then, please take care!!
