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!

“ Yoko showed me the beautiful sights in real Tokyo ”

I requested to see the non-tourist sights. We started with a quick elevator ride to the observatory deck at the government building. Yoko and walked 8.5 miles around such classic cultural areas as Shinjuku, Yanaka area, and Kagurazaka area. Shinjuku - Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (45th floor) to see a beautiful view of Tokyo and Mt.Fuji! Omoide Yokocho alley which has a lot of small restaurants, Kabuki-cho, one of the most popular entertainment areas in Tokyo which has a lot of bars, restaurants and Karaoke shop and Godzilla on a top of a tall building. Food hall at Isetan department store. Tokyo station area - viewing Tokyo Station building and Tokyo station area from Marunouchi Building. Having lunch at Ippudo ramen restaurant. Imperial Palace area to see the double... read more


Thank you so much for taking your time to post such a wonderful review, Jim! I hope you took a lot of beautiful photos during our tour. Some of the sights are not usual destinations, so I was not sure if they might have met your expectations. The weather was good in the morning, so I'm glad that we saw a beautiful view of Tokyo and Mt.Fuji. And I love your beautiful photo of Mt.Fuji! I enjoyed my time with you, thank you so much for having me as your guide. I hope you come to Tokyo again and see you then. Please take care.

“ Half day in Tokyo ”

Half day tour of Tokyo, Nov 10, 2018. Yoko took us to a beautiful park in the heart of the city (Hama-rkyu gardens) then on a tour of the fish market and for a Sushi lunch. We also went up in a tall building for a view of the city. Yoko is a very nice lady and great guide. Price as reasonable for service provided. Highly recommended.


Thank you so much for posting a great review, Jim! It was a really beautiful day and I had a lovely time with you and your wife. I hope you went to the Yokohama cruise port smoothly after we finished the tour. Thank you for having me as your guide. I hope you had a wonderful journey in Japan. Tokyo has a lot of attractive places other than the places we visited. I hope both of you come to Tokyo again in the near future and see you then.

“ Great customized tour ”

We had requested a tour which didn’t hit the big sites but rather focused on some neighbourhoods. Yoko really delivered for us. We had a varied day seeing a variety of areas to give us a better feel for life in Tokyo. We found Yoko to be responsive to our requests both before and during the tour. She was quite informative and we learned a lot about the city and daily life. Her English is fine and she has a great sense of humour. Most importantly, she understood us and our interests. We would definitely want Yoko to guide us again should we return to Tokyo and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any of our friends should they need a guide in Tokyo. Thanks Yoko.


Thank you so much for taking your time to post such a fabulous review, Jonathan! I'm very glad to hear that the tour met your expectations. The tour was a really good opportunity for me, thank you. I had a memorable and enjoyable time with all of you, I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. Talking with you was fun and interesting, We shared a lot of laughter. It was really nice meeting all of you. I hope you enjoy your journey in Japan and Asia. I hope you come to Tokyo again someday in the near future and see you then. Please take care and have a lovely journey.

“ Comprehensive Tokyo tour ”

We spent a day and a half with Yoko and felt like we got to see all the highlights of the city. She took us to shrines, gardens, fascinating neighborhoods, the fish market and even on a boat tour. We could never have accomplished this on our own. Great tour!


Thank you so much for posting a wonderful review, Lori. I'm glad to hear the tour met your expectation. I had a lovely time with both of you. It was nice meeting you. Thank you so much for having me as your guide. I hope you come to Japan again and hope to see you then. Please take care.
