Overview

Kamakura is an ancient Samurai capital. It's just an hour train ride from Tokyo. You can find lots of lovely temples and Shinto shrines there. Japan has been ruled by Samurai from late 12th century for over 600 years. Kamakura is the first samurai capital. Since it wasn't refined yet, you can find how samurai culture was formed after that. Also, you will know how Buddism influence samurai.

What to Expect

We visit Hase temple and the great Buddha first of all. We use Enoden, the very popular train, from Kamakura. After visiting Hase area, we have lunch. There are many lovely restaurants in Kamakura. I introduce you some of them. If you have some special request such as Halal, Vegan, Vegetarian, I can arrange special restautants. Then we visit Tsurugaoka Hachiman shrine. From the shrine to Hokokuji temple, we may walk. If you like, you can try a bowl of Matcha tea at Hokokuji temple, viewing fantastic bamboo grove.
You can enjoy shopping traditional Japanese souvenirs at Komachi street at the end. Also, you can try Japanese street food at the same street.

Hi, my name is Mika. I'm a goverment licenced guide. I have worked in outbound tourism for over twenty years. Then I noticed how wonderful Japanese traditional culture is. I'd like to introduce part of it to you making comparison with Western culture and Japanese culture. Also I'd like to learn more about Japan with you.
Actually I like football very much. I live in a town between Kamakura and Odawada. The area is called Shonan. We have a professioal football team in this area. If you like, I watch Shonan Bellmare football games with you telling which players are in good condition. I'm sure you can have. unforgetable memory.
