Overview

Kamakura is one of the most beautiful ancient cities in Japan, surrounded by the hills and a long beach.
With old zen temples and shrines Kamakura reminds us the old days of the samurai. This is a 1-day tour from Tokyo to visit Kamakura’s highlights including the Great Buddha of Kotokuin Temple. And the Bamboo grove and the mattcha tea of Hokokuji Temple upon your request.

What to Expect

This tour is basically a 8-hour private custom tour at your requests. It is very flexible and we can discuss variations to visit places in advance, so you will not miss the places you want to see in Kamakura.
As you needed, I will also arrange lunch.

“ Excellent guide for Tokyo ”

Junko was very friendly, patient and knowledgeable, with excellent English. She gave us an excellent tour of the main attractions and explained history and culture. Junko also arranged a tea ceremony and booked a great restaurant for lunch. She also taught us how to navigate the subway! Altogether a fun first day in Tokyo with our excellent guide Junko.

Junko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review, Gary and Eleanor!! I also had a great time with you. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Thank you again, Junko

“ Thank you, Junko ”

We were very happy with our wonderful guide Junko. She was extremely kind and attentive. Even before we met, she already helped us not only plan our day with her, but also answered our questions and made useful suggestions for other days, including very detailed help with planning our trip to Nikko. In Tokyo Junko met us at Tsukiji Market after we had a delicious sushi breakfast in one of the restaurants Junko recommended. Junk showed us around outer market and introduced us to many interesting foods and snacks unique to Japan. Then we spent the full day with Junko looking at the new (Harajuku, Shibuya) and old (Yanaka, Meiji Temple, Ueno, Asakusa). At the end of our long day we felt as if we spent several days in Tokyo (and not 8 hours). During our lunch, Junko selected excellent place ... read more

Junko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review, Lawrence and Ella! I also had a great time with you...We walked a lot :Tsukiji, Harajuku, Yanaka, etc. After the tour I checked my pedometer that showed 26000 steps!!!! Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. I would be very happy to see you again in spring. Junko

“ Walking Tour Of Tokyo ”

Junko was incredibly accommodating on a hot and blistering day in Tokyo. She showed us around the Tsukiji Fish market, Sensoji Temple and Tokyo Skytree. We even had the chance to experience a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony. We had our 10 year old son with us and she made sure that none of our walking activities were too strenuous for him. We had never been to Japan before and made the most of our day thanks to Junko and her very knowledgeable tour. We became familiar with the Tokyo mass transit system and were able to travel around thanks to her advice. I would very much recommend her for anyone wishing to explore the Japanese capital for the first time.

Junko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review, Ron. I am very happy to have helped you enjoy staying in Tokyo. Hope you and your family will come to Tokyo again. Take care! Junko

“ Wonderful Guide ”

Highly recommend Junko as a tour guide. Very knowledgeable, caring and well prepared guide. Had an amazing tour at fish market where we loved the different samples to taste. Had our 8yo grandson with us who she also looked out for in the crowds and always had our needs in mind. Due to the heat had to cut our tour short which upset us but Junko was very caring making sure I was ok doing all she could to make me comfortable. Thank you for the part of the tour we got to do with you, and will use you again on our next visit to amazing Tokyo.

Junko:

Thank your so much for a wonderful review, Gina. I am really happy that you enjoyed the Tsukiji Market. Hope you have a good time in the rest of your stay in Tokyo and that I will meet you, Mitchel and your family again! Take care!! Junko
