What to Expect

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.

“ Kamakura with Riko ”

Last week we took a wonderful all-day excursion with Riko to Kamakura. Riko promptly met us at our hotel and led us to our train to Kamakura. During the train ride, she provided us information on the area and a historical background. She discussed what we would be visiting. Riko was a wealth of information and very professional. I am grateful for her services as I realized that we wouldn't be able to maneuver the local buses and trains so efficiently. I am especially grateful on how considerate she was and paced to tour to our capabilities. I would highly recommend Riko as a top notch guide.

“ Great first impressions ”

There were 3 friends travelling together and Riko found ways to reach out to each of us and our interests individually. It was an exceptional day and I think we mastered the underground system in Tokyo. We had an exceptional time touring the grounds of the Imperial Palace among other beautiful sites.
