Overview

Kamakura is my favorite coastal old area located in about 50km south from Tokyo that was used to be the first de facto capital, samurais ever established in end of 12th century. It is a perfect place to escape from the daily bustleness of mega-city like Tokyo. You will find calmness and rustic atmosphere while visiting precious temples and shrines surrounded by verdant forest.

“ Fun way to see tokyo! ”

Was such a interesting and fun tour we had with Mitsuru. We got to see the popular sights of Tokyo with ease due to Mutsurus huge knowledge of the city. Also very formative tour as Mitsuru has heaps of knowlege, so ask a lot of questions as he will be able to answer them!

Mitsuru:

Thank you so much for your kind comment. I'm happy to hear again you have enjoyed my tour. But probably I'm the one who enjoyed the most, especially with charming couple like you. I hope you enjoy Japan the rest of the stays from my heart and I hope I can see you some time in the future again. Best Regards., Mark.
