Transportation fee and lunch of you and a guide will be paid by the client.
- If you pay extra service charge for 10,000 yen, I can also guide you to Kyoto, Nara, Osaka and/or Shiga.

- If you book me before sending an inquiry, please note you may be requested to pay extra guide fee for hotel meetup (about 2,000 JPY) depending on the location.

Since every road in Kamakura is very crowded throughout a year, a tour using a van or a coach is not so convenient.
