What to Expect

Kamakura is a very popular tourist destination and has a lot of temples, shrines and historical places. Sometimes the city is called the Kyoto of eastern Japan.
We’ll visit some of the most popular spots in Kamakura.

I’ll meet you at your hotel and then we’ll go to Kamakura by train. It takes about 1 hour from central Tokyo.
First we’ll go to Hokoku-ji temple. The temple is also called “Take-dera”, which has a beautiful bamboo garden. Then we’ll have lunch. Kamakura has a lot of nice restaurants, so please feel free to tell me your preference for lunch in advance. After lunch, we’ll go to Hase-dera temple. The temple has a beautiful garden and you can enjoy a lovely view of coastal city of Kamakura from the observation deck.
Then we’ll go to Kotoku-in temple which is famous for the Great Buddha. You must be overwhelmed by the large scale statue.
After that we’ll go back to Tokyo and finish the tour at your hotel or anywhere you’d like to go.

Kamakura is a lovely place to visit and I’m sure you can feel serenity in some temples.
I’m looking forward to seeing you!

“ Superior time with Yoko ”

Yoko was wonderful. Our one day tour was extremely flexible. Yoko English is excellent. Wr changed our plans because of rain and she had some nice ideas. Thanks for spending a memorable day with our family!!!

Yoko:

Thank you so much for posting a great review, Howard! I had a lovely day with all of you. Your daughters were lovely, I was happy to see they truly enjoyed shopping and walking along Takeshita street. Some places and things are new and interesting to me, thank you for giving me such a good opportunity. The tour was also memorable for me. I hope I can see you again in the near future.

“ Excellent Guide ”

Yoko is a friendly and soft spoken person, She has a happy disposition. We are very happy and thankful that she allowed us to changed our Itinerary from Kamakura to Ashikaga 2 days prior our trip. And we did not regret it! Ashikaga is a beautiful place. Very relaxing and peaceful. We love both Ashikaga Gakko and Ashikaga Flower Park. Yoko’s english is also very good. We also learned that it is her first time to have a tour on Ashikaga that is not on a peak season and we are her first client for her Nikko tour! We are overwhelmed! Both tours are well planned and organized. I would highly recommend you to hire Yoko’s services if you have plan to go to Nikko, I can guarantee that you will be in good hands! I will surely recommend you to my friends and relatives! Thank You for taking ca... read more

Yoko:

Thank you so much for posting such a lovely review, Tessa! I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed the tours with me. Ashikaga is my hometown, so actually I was happy to hear that you would like to go to Ashikaga. Though the wisterias were over, we enjoyed a lot of beautiful flowers, especially roses are very beautiful. Taking my clients to Nikko was my first time, so honestly I was wondering if you could enjoy Nikko during our tour, but I was glad that everything went well. Thank you for all of your cooperation. Talking with you and your friends were really interesting and inspiring to me. I'm grateful for your kindness. Thank you again for having me as your guide. I hope I can see you again in the near future.

“ So happy we found Yoko! ”

We booked Yoko for a half day tour our first day in Tokyo and so glad we found her. She picked us up in the lobby of our hotel right on time and took us everywhere we asked her to see. We had a fantastic sushi lunch and really enjoyed her company. Yoko speaks wonderful English and taught us so much about Tokyo and Japan.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for posting a wonderful review, Steven! I'm glad to hear both of you enjoyed the tour with me. I also had a lovely time with both of you. Talking with you was fun and interesting. I'm grateful for your kindness. We've had much colder days than usual, so I hope you haven't caught cold. I hope you have lovely journey in Japan. I hope I can see you again in the near future.

“ Fantastic Day In Tokyo ”

Whatever I say here about our experience with Yoko in Tokyo will not do her justice. She is a wonderful guide and we enjoyed every minute. She was extremely attentive and wasnt even bothered by our 10 year olds attack with questions. She was very knowledgable about the areas, moreso than we expected. Although she is listed here as "licensed" in English - We would have classifiied her as fluent. We had absolutely no trouble communicating. Our only regret is we would have like to have her for the entire trip. She is a pleasure to tour with and will make your trip special. Do not hesitate to lock her in ASAP as she is (and deserves to be) in high demand. Thank you, Yoko, for making our visit extra special.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for such a great review, VIRGIL! I'm glad to hear that the tour might have met your expectations. I also had a lovely time with all of you. Though some of the questions from your son were tough for me to answer, but definitely interesting and fun! Both of your sons are smart and lovely. All of you are very nice and warm, so I felt as if I had spent a time with my good friends. There are a lot of beautiful places in Japan. I hope all of you come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you then.

“ Japanese gardens and kaiseki ryori lunch ”

I would highly recommend Yoko as a guide. Her understanding of English is very good and she is also very considerate. She paid careful attention to my particular interests and needs in planning our day’s tour well in advance, listening thoughtfully and patiently answering questions that made it easy to relax and enjoy time at each location we visited without feeling rushed. As well as information, she offered insight into aspects of Japanese culture, tradition and way of life in context that helped deepen my understanding and appreciation. She is also a charming and delightful companion with a great sense of humour. It felt more like making and talking with a friend, reflecting the true nature of hospitality for a foreign tourist.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for such a warm and fabulous review, Philip-san! I'm glad to hear that the tour met your expectations. The tour was a little unusual for me, so I was wondering if I could do a good tour for you, but I also enjoyed the tour as if I had spent a lovely time with my friend. I'm grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. Talking with you was really interesting and fun to me. Your deep knowledge about Japan impressed me a lot. I had a lovely time strolling the gardens with you. Thank you so much for giving me such a great opportunity. I hope you have a lovely journey in Japan. I hope you come to Tokyo again in the near future and hope to see you then. Watashi mo tanoshikatta desu! Arigatou gozaimashita.
