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!

“ Personalised tour of Tokyo ”

We had a fantastic day with Yoko. As well as taking us to all the sites we wanted to see Yoko explained the history and customs of each place She taught us how the underground trains worked so we could get around ourselves and recommended places to go We had a delicious Japanese lunch which was enjoyed by all. Yoko was an excellent guide.

Yoko:
Thank you so much for your fabulous review, Lynette. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the day. It's my pleasure to help you exploring Tokyo. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed "Shabu-shabu" lunch which is popular Japanese dishes especially in winter. It was really a lovely day for me with all of your family. I hope you will enjoy your stay in Hokkaido. Hope to see you again in the near future. Happy holidays! Yoko

“ Yoko is an excellent guide ”

We only had one day to tour Tokyo and Yoko was a perfect choice. She expertly guided us through all the sights we wanted to see. We took public transportation and throughout the day never felt rushed. She picked the best place for lunch. Prior to the tour Yoko answered all of our inquiries promptly. Yoko went out of her way to make our day enjoyable. I recommend Yoko highly for your Tokyo tour.

Yoko:
Thank you so much for your great review, Michael and Steve! I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed the day. Both of you are nice so I had a memorable day indeed. I really appreciate your cooperation about exploring Tokyo by trains, subways, and of course walking. Actually it was fun for me to see the increased steps on your counters at each site! I hope you'll come to Japan and would like to see you again in the near future. Please enjoy your vacation on Thailand and Vietnam! Yoko

“ Gorgeous Tokyo! ”

Yoko is an amazing guide! We had a lovely time with her. She was informative and ensured that we were comfortable throughout our tour. She is such a warm and friendly person! We learned so much about Tokyo from her. Thank you, Yoko for the wonderful memories! We can't wait to visit again!

Yoko:
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Janaki! I also had a lovely time with all of you. You are very nice and friendly, so I thought as if I were one of your family members. Your children are very lovely! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour and staying Tokyo. Though I've been to Singapore before I learned new things about Singapore from you, which is really interesting. Please come to Tokyo someday in the near future and I'd love to see you again! Yoko

“ Great experience and fun ”

Yoko was very pleasant and knowledgeable. She covered a lot of the important sights in Tokyo but didn't make it feel rushed. Tokyo can be overwhelming for the first-timer but Yoko helped us navigate very easily. She also helped us with shopping at the end of the busy day as a lot of the department store employees don't speak English. She helped us with ticket reservations for the rest of the trip too! All in all it was a very good experience and would recommend her for other first-timers!!

Yoko:
Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Raman. I didn't expect that you posted the review such an early timing. I'm grateful to you for taking your time to post the review. I was afraid if you were tired after a long day with a lot of walk, but I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed the day. I also had a lovely time with you and your wife. Hearing about your daughters, your country and your hometown is very interesting. I hope you'll enjoy Kyoto and Hiroshima. Besides the places, Japan has a various lovely tourist destinations. I hope you'll come to Japan in the near future and experience "Onsen" or hot springs and hope to see you then. Have a lovely trip! Yoko

“ First Impressions of Tokyo ”

We spent the afternoon of our first day in Tokyo with Yoko in the lead. She guided us through the use of the subway system and provided us with a less complicated map so that we could easily see where we were going. Our first stop was the amazing Hama-rikyu Gardens. Yoko prompted us to take part in the tea ceremony at the Tea House in the center of the gardens which we enjoyed partaking in the special tea that they offer. This was a wonderful start to the rest of our time with her. We would highly recommend her as a guide. Her English was quite good and her knowledge of the sites was very informative.

Yoko:
Thank you very much for the great review, Annemarie. I didn't expect it - thank you so much for taking your time to post such a wonderful review. It was a lovely day and I really enjoyed the day with you. I'm grateful to you for sharing the photos about your country, Bermuda. I've never been there and had very little knowledge, but thanks to you now I know your country is very lovely place with lots of tourist attractions. I'd like to visit there someday in the near future. I hope you'll enjoy your stay in Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara. I hope you'll come to Japan and hope to see you again. Thank you and have a great trip! Yoko
