What to Expect

Kamakura was once the capital of Japan where the first "samurai" government was established in the end of the twelfth century. Today the city draws as many as twenty million visitors a year as one of the must visit places in Japan. On this tour we'll visit three most popular spots, Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine which was constructed by the first shogun Minamoto no Yoritomo, Great Buddha which has been sitting under the sun over the centuries and nicknamed " an open-air Buddha", and Hase Temple, the second oldest temple in Kamakura enshrining the tall wooden statue of eleven-headed Hase Kannon in sparkling gold . After that we'll take the Enoden Line to Inamuragasaki station, which is two stops away from Hase station, to enjoy the great views of Sagami Bay, where you can see Enoshima Island, and if you are lucky, together with Mt.Fuji.

Hello! I'm Eri. I'm originally from Iwate prefecture, and now I live in Fujisawa city, a popular seaside resort close to Kamakura. I've been guiding overseas tourists around Kamakura for several years. I really enjoy meeting people from all over the world and introducing the attractions of historical and present-day Kamakura and my neighborhood Enoshima Island. I look forward to meeting you soon!

“ Customized Tour of Kamakura with Kids! ”

We had a lovely day with Eri! My family (including twin 4 year old boys) took the train (which she helped us with finding the correct train/time) from Tokyo to see the Daibutsu, and with the help and knowledge of Eri, we saw the Big Buddha and so much more! Traveling with kids is so different and she helped make it fun for them and interesting and relevant for us. We first went to the main shrine, Tsurugaoko Hachimangu, where our boys could have been bored. But we fed the birds/fish to change the pace. We also took a detour bc my husband wanted to look at a woodblock store on our way to the next stop. She helped him communicate with the shopkeeper and we ended up with a beautiful piece of art. Seeing the Daibustu itself is pretty amazing, but had she not been with us we would have missed the opportunity to actually go inside! The best part was because I wanted a chance to see Mt. Fuji - she took us to the seafront at Inamuragasaki. it was a cloudy day so we didn't get the view we'd hoped for but my boys got to play in the sand and water for a bit! They're still talking about it! Eri also arranged lunch reservations for us so we could taste the very delicate and oishii baby sardines - sounds weird but try it! Overall Eri was helpful, patient, knowledgable, kind and we highly recommend her services!

“ Awesome Time at Kamakura! ”

We had a wonderful time with Eri. Being a local, Eri was very knowledgeable of the history, culture and legends of Kamakura. She speaks English extremely well and she made sure we were comfortable and did not feel rushed at all. My kids (ages 9 & 13) loved Eri. While we waited for our dishes at the table during lunch, she gave each of us a beautiful packet of origami paper and started showing us how to make ninja stars. Even though our tour passed the 5 hr mark, Eri still made sure we saw everything as per our itinerary and at the end of the tour, waited at the train platform with us until the train arrived and still stayed until the train departed. We highly recommend Eri as a guide. She's fantastic, warm, friendly, funny and a great photographer too! Eri, thank you for showing us around Kamakura.
