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!

I opted for the Harajuku, Meiji Shrine and Shibuya tour. A six hour tour. From the moment I booked with Yoko, she was in constant communication with me. Being it the first time out in Tokyo, I was looking for someone who was well versed and knowledgable with the area. I found that in Yoko. Her speaking English was also a plus. Made it easier to communicate and understand each other. The Shrine and history behind it was a marvel. She took me thru Takeshita Street which was a treat for me. I ended up at Out of this World shoe store. Btw..if you love unique shoes swing by there! Shibuya crossing was a spectacle. I would recommend and hire Yoko again when needed. She's knowledgable, sincere and patient. I took a bit of my tour time in shoe store. ;)Managed to finish and enjoy the rest of my tour! Thank you Yoko.
I loved spending the day with Yoko in Kamakura. Before meeting, she had looked up a special train/bus pass for us to use when in Kamakura. At the different temples , Yoko knew about each one. We went to a really neat tea ceremony in the bamboo gardens. I have many food allergies and Yoko , looked up restaurants that I could eat at. She took me to a traditional Japanese Buddhist monk style restaurant where they would have food that I could eat as a gluten free vegetarian eater. It was the best meal I had in Japan.
My family enjoyed our tour of Tokyo with Yoko. She is friendly, accomodating, flexible and efficient. Even though we had alot to see throughout the tour she never rushed and somehow just fitted everything in. She catered to our needs and adapted as we went along including last minute changes on the day itself. What I appreciate most was her openess and warmth. She was always smiling and cheerful. We felt so comfortable with her. It was like a friend bringing us around. Thank you so much Yoko!
Yoko is a wonderful guide. She is very pleasant, cheerful, professional, and knowledgeable about the history and culture of the places we visited. We could not possibly have covered so many of the famous sights on our own as efficiently as Yoko guided us. She is very accommodating and we appreciate all her recommendations. Though we covered many places, we never felt rushed. Yoko took us to a famous Sushi place at Tsukiji Fish Market where we had a fabulous lunch. After the full day tour, she followed up to recommend a couple of shops near the hotel to shop for a few specific items we wanted to check out on our own. Yoko speaks excellent English and we had no problems communicating before and during the tour. We had a really fun and enjoyable day! Thank you for the memorable experience.
Very friendly and sensitive guide, perfect organization of the trip from beginning to end. It was very pleasant to communicate and spend time together on the trip.
