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.

Junko is great in explaining the details of Japan and its culture. Very flexible during tours. We were able to see a lot of Tokyo in one day. We will definitely come back for more.

“ Exceptional walking tour with Junko ”

Walking with Junko was such a rewarding experience. In our walking tour she introduced us to the Tokyo metro system, pointed out local shops, info centres, future sites to see and took us to hidden gems at Nezu, Yanaka and Asakusa. We really appreciated the effort Junko put in - she was very prepared, generous with her time and friendly. Thankyou so much for such a fabulous introduction on our first day in Tokyo.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a great review. I am very happy to have introduced you to various things about Tokyo. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your staying in Japan to make unforgettable experiences. Thank you again and take care. Junko

“ A wonderful tour guide ”

Junko was our tour guide on our first day in Tokyo. She was wonderful! Exactly on time, very accommodating (the weather was bad today and we had to make some quick itinerary changes). She was extremely knowledgeable about the city, its history, how best to navigate and travel, among countless other things. We had a great time with her and would happily request her services on future trips to the city.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, Alan. I am very happy to have helped you know Tokyo, its culture and history. I also had a great time with you. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your staying in Tokyo. Thank you again, Junko.

“ Very accommodating guide ”

Our family of 4 met Junko to guide us on a one day tour of Tokyo. She arrived on time and was prepared with handouts, maps etc. we had emailed back and forth before our trip discussing the itinerary. Junko replied promptly and happily revised as needed. We would not have been able to see as many sites on our own, she also taught us how to navigate the subway system which can be intimidating for a first timer who does not speak Japanese. Her English is good, we were able to understand most everything. Junko also took us to a traditional Japanese restaurant for lunch. It was affordable and one of the best meals we had. I would use her again if we are lucky enough to return to Tokyo.

Junko:

Thank you for a wonderful review, Ingrid. I am very glad to have helped you and your family know Tokyo. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Thanks again. Junko
