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.

“ Two-days in Tokyo with Junko ”

Junko met me at my hotel with itinerary in hand. I had previously listed the types of things I wanted to explore in Tokyo. She was prepared BUT better still, she prepared me for the following 10-days that I would be staying in Japan. The first thing she did was show me how to purchase a SUICA card for the trains, subways and other miscellaneous purchases. It was the best information I could have received and it served me and my husband well during our stay.

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review. I am very happy to have helped you staying in Japan. I also had a great time with you. Hope you would come back to see cherry blossoms. Thank you again and take care! Junko

“ Junko was AWESOME!!! ”

Our family had a wonderful time with Junko. We saw many things we may not have ever gotten to see without her guidance, and saw things we’ve seen in the past in a different way because of her deep understanding of the place and the culture. Tokyo can be to say the least... a little overwhelming. Her love for her city and county and patience with us really made it an enjoyable experience. She’s able to take away some of the mystery that can hold you back from enjoying Tokyo and Japan fully, and make it more manageable. FYI... Bring some comfortable shoes and some stamina. Junko has great energy and can pack in a lot of sites in an 8 hour period. I’d highly recommend her. Aloha, The Millers

Junko:

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, Eric! I had a great time with you and your family, too. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Thank you again and take care. Aloha, Junko.
