A famous old town of Kamakura is also known for its beautiful beach. This area is called "Shonan ", which is one of the most popular tour spots in Japan, especially for the young people enjoying marine sports. By using Eno-den Line, which is so cute a train and runs mainly by the beach, you can enjoy both old beautiful Kamakra and beautiful modern beach spots.

What to Expect

Through this tour you can enjoy both historical aspects and beautiful marine scenery of Kamakura.
At the west end of this area lies Enoshima island. More than 200 years ago, people in Edo (now Tokyo) area began to enjoy tour to this island under the pretext of paying a visit to the shrines there. On the way back home they also stopped at Kamakura. This is how Kamakra became the most popular tour spots. Like Mont Saint Michel in France, the island is a land-tied island connected by tombolo. In 2020 Tokyo Olympic, yacht races will be held here. Further more, you can even enjoy Japanese style hot spa viewing Mt. Fuji and the sea.

“ Yokohama and Tokyo made easy ”

While in Yokohama for the rugby World Cup, we enjoyed 2 full day tours of Yokohama and Tokyo with Kaneo. Even before arriving in Japan, Kaneo was very responsive to all of my email and itinerary requests. With the limited time we had to experience both these large cities, having Kaneo show us round the public transport system with ease was such a benefit. Kaneo was very knowledgeable about all of the various historic and modern places we visited. Kaneo's English was very good and we would highly recommend to any other tourists visiting Yokohama or Tokyo.

Kaneo:

Dear Alan Thank you for your warm reply. I myself enjoyed the tour with you. While I was going around with you, I was so impressed at your strong bonds of friendship. Four of you came from quite different places in the world to cheer your Scotland in Japan and came back to your different homes in the world! I envy your strong bonds. I really hope another chance to guide you in Tokyo. Best regards Kaneo

“ Kamakura and enoshima ”

Kanei-san was a phenomenal guide! He communicated with us extensively prior to the tour. He met us at the train station and guided our group of 4 people to Enoshima and Kamakura. He was patient and allowed us to travel leisurely at our pace since we were quite exhausted from our previous day's travel and tours. Kaneo also has a wonderful personality and made the trip enjoyable. He is very knowledgeable and I recommend him for any tour which he guides.

Kaneo:

Dear Carol Thank you for your warm review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed Kamakura tour after your exhausting experience in Kyoto. I also enjoyed the tour with you and your family. Especially I felt something warm when I heard you talking about your memory in fluent Japanese. Best regards Kaneo

“ The Great Kaneo ”

Kaneo was amazing. First, what a kind and sweet man he is! He was so wonderful to our family, and I think he enjoyed the days with us as much as we did with him. He guided us to Disney Tokyo and Disney Sea and was so fun and informative. He will always be a great memory of our trip to Tokyo. His knowledge of the city and it's transit system was unmatched. I would recommend Kaneo to anyone looking to enjoy Tokyo on another level. He was AMAZING!!! Thank you Kaneo!!

Kaneo:

Thank you for your wonderful review. I really enjoyed Disneyland & DisneySea with you. I also enjoyed small talks with you and your family, while we were waiting for attractions. It is a great honor for me to be a good memory of your trip to Tokyo. I hope I can guide you again someday. Best regards, Kaneo

“ Great guide and person ”

We have spend a day in Hakone with Kaneo. Although weather was not good and the rope ways were closed due to volcanic activities it was great to spend this day with him there. We had a kid in our group and Kaneo made all efforts that the kid was not bored (e.g. origami 😀). He provided many important information to prepare for our stay in Hakone prior the tour. We recommend Kaneo as he is a very nice person, his English is very good and he has great knowledge about Japan.

Kaneo:

Thank you for your kind review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed Hakone tour in spite of a bad weather. It is really a pity that we could not see Mt. Fuji. But I myself enjoyed Hakone with a pleasant group like yours.

“ The Best First Day in Tokyo! ”

If you’re looking for a guide in Tokyo, and Kaneo is available, book him ASAP! He is the best of the best! I’ll start out by saying that it would have taken my husband and myself a full week to do all the things we did with Kaneo in just one day. This is not an exaggeration. I based my initial requests to Kaneo on my “Lonely Planet” guidebook’s “must do” list. We were able to do all of them, plus several more sites and activities. By booking this tour with Kaneo on our first full day in Tokyo, we were able to be more relaxed with the rest of our days there. Taking the pressure off the rest of our days in Tokyo was an invaluable result of our tour with Kaneo. I must mention Kaneo’s awesome itinerary PDFs that he sent leading up to our trip. These files included his own personal ph... read more

Kaneo:

Thank you for your kind and long review of my guide. I am very happy to know you enjoyed my guide so much as to evaluate it very high. I also feel happy to know I could show you some of good things of Japan, including our “Omotenashi” mind. I also appreciate your kindness to bring me a precious souvenir and a letter. Best regards, Kaneo
