What to Expect

Kamakura is surrounded by small mountains, which protected this first Samurai government against enemies. Zeniarai-Benten shrine is in a cave in this mountain area. Among Japanese, it is famous for its washing money ritual. But it is located in some 30 minutes walk from Kamakura station, so it is difficult to reach without help, especially for foreigners. I will guide you to this sacred and nature-rich area through an ancient mountain pass.
Before this small hiking, I can show you Tsurugaoka-Hachiman-gu shrine and Komachi-dori shopping street. After hiking, you will get to famous Great Buddha and Hase-dera temple.

“ Kamakura and enoshima ”

Kanei-san was a phenomenal guide! He communicated with us extensively prior to the tour. He met us at the train station and guided our group of 4 people to Enoshima and Kamakura. He was patient and allowed us to travel leisurely at our pace since we were quite exhausted from our previous day's travel and tours. Kaneo also has a wonderful personality and made the trip enjoyable. He is very knowledgeable and I recommend him for any tour which he guides.

Kaneo:

Dear Carol Thank you for your warm review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed Kamakura tour after your exhausting experience in Kyoto. I also enjoyed the tour with you and your family. Especially I felt something warm when I heard you talking about your memory in fluent Japanese. Best regards Kaneo

“ The Great Kaneo ”

Kaneo was amazing. First, what a kind and sweet man he is! He was so wonderful to our family, and I think he enjoyed the days with us as much as we did with him. He guided us to Disney Tokyo and Disney Sea and was so fun and informative. He will always be a great memory of our trip to Tokyo. His knowledge of the city and it's transit system was unmatched. I would recommend Kaneo to anyone looking to enjoy Tokyo on another level. He was AMAZING!!! Thank you Kaneo!!

Kaneo:

Thank you for your wonderful review. I really enjoyed Disneyland & DisneySea with you. I also enjoyed small talks with you and your family, while we were waiting for attractions. It is a great honor for me to be a good memory of your trip to Tokyo. I hope I can guide you again someday. Best regards, Kaneo

“ Great guide and person ”

We have spend a day in Hakone with Kaneo. Although weather was not good and the rope ways were closed due to volcanic activities it was great to spend this day with him there. We had a kid in our group and Kaneo made all efforts that the kid was not bored (e.g. origami 😀). He provided many important information to prepare for our stay in Hakone prior the tour. We recommend Kaneo as he is a very nice person, his English is very good and he has great knowledge about Japan.

Kaneo:

Thank you for your kind review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed Hakone tour in spite of a bad weather. It is really a pity that we could not see Mt. Fuji. But I myself enjoyed Hakone with a pleasant group like yours.

“ The Best First Day in Tokyo! ”

If you’re looking for a guide in Tokyo, and Kaneo is available, book him ASAP! He is the best of the best! I’ll start out by saying that it would have taken my husband and myself a full week to do all the things we did with Kaneo in just one day. This is not an exaggeration. I based my initial requests to Kaneo on my “Lonely Planet” guidebook’s “must do” list. We were able to do all of them, plus several more sites and activities. By booking this tour with Kaneo on our first full day in Tokyo, we were able to be more relaxed with the rest of our days there. Taking the pressure off the rest of our days in Tokyo was an invaluable result of our tour with Kaneo. I must mention Kaneo’s awesome itinerary PDFs that he sent leading up to our trip. These files included his own personal ph... read more

Kaneo:

Thank you for your kind and long review of my guide. I am very happy to know you enjoyed my guide so much as to evaluate it very high. I also feel happy to know I could show you some of good things of Japan, including our “Omotenashi” mind. I also appreciate your kindness to bring me a precious souvenir and a letter. Best regards, Kaneo
