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.

“ Walking tour of Tokyo ”

Miss Junko is an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable on the history on the location we visited which gave us a better appreciation for those sites. Miss Junko is also very flexible with our schedule and made sure to update our schedule and show us different locations. We were able to see many different sites and try food that would had been missed if we tried ourselves. Thank you very much for a wonderful day Miss Junko and I will most certainly recommend your services to anyone!

Junko:

“ Very lovely day ”

I set up a full 8 hours with Junko in Tokyo in November 2018. She had great communication planning our day as best as possible for the list of things I wanted to see. Unfortunately, I was very tired and jet lagged and by the 4th hour was having a hard time keeping up.

Junko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review, Marta! I am very glad to have helped you know Tokyo. However, the one-day tour was so extensive to make you get tired.
