Just 1 hour train ride from Tokyo, you will touch an essence of Japanese beauty, serene temples, picturesque gardens, impressive statue of Great Buddha. Kamakura is a place where the first Samurai regime was born in Japan in the 12th century. Due to its long history, Kamakura still remains a number of traditional structures and historic interest. You can see different aspects of Japan from what you see in Tokyo. If you like history and traditional things, I highly recommend this tour.
On this tour, we will visit Hokokuji Temple which has a beautiful bamboo grove. If you would like, you can try Matcha tea, or thick green tea used in the tea ceremony in the bamboo grove. And then we will explore a lovely shopping street called Komachi-dori and have lunch there. After lunch, we will visit Kotoku-in Temple which is famous for the gigantic stature of Great Buddha. Our last visit is an attractive flower temple, Hasedera Temple. You can see another statue of 11 headed Kannon Bodhisattva there.

we really enjoyed spending the day with Riko. She was super friendly and knowledgeable. She was flexible and took us to some amazing places! I would recommend using her!
Riko is a very knowledgeable lady with a very friendly demeanor & good sense of humour as well as patience. She ensures that you get to do everything you have asked and offers alternatives if what you want is not available. She explains things in an easy to understand way and ensures that children are included in the tour by involving them. We not only learned about Japanese history and culture but also about what it was like to live in Tokyo (schooling, cars, metro system, shopping etc) and is honest about the "tackier" areas of the city. Riko was that good we were able to make our way across Tokyo ourselves on a different day using the railway as she had explained it so well! I would highly recommend Riko as a tour guide for Tokyo.
Thanks for showing us in-depth detail of tokyo, Riko.. Riko is the best guide you could ever get if you are travelling in Tokyo area.. she speaks good english, always come prepared, and has a deep knowledge of the city.. we were travelling around Tokyo area with 10 people, which i can say that we were pretty demanding, since we travelled with 2 kids (2 y.o & 5 y.o) and 4 seniors.. fortunately we got Riko! She always put your needs first, and my kids even like her very much! Hopefully we can come back to tokyo again in the future and for sure we will meet again... thx Riko
When travelling with a jet-lagged teenager, keeping their interest is difficult. However, Riko did just that throughout her site packed day tour (Tokyo Tower, Owl petting, Akihabara, Shrines, and more)! She has a wealth of historical/local knowledge and quick on tips and tricks to navigating Tokyo and Japan when on your own. Our day with her was one of the best things about Japan, according to my nephew (and me). Thank you,Riko!
Riko was an excellent tour guide and our group of six truly enjoyed the experience. I would highly recommend her as a tour guide.
