Kamakura used to be the capital of Japan as a seat of the first samurai government around 800 years ago. Samurai culture and Zen Buddhism were developed here, and they had a great influence on Japanese culture afterward.

Spent over four hours covering the highlights o f Tokyo at night. Yu did a great job. She was fun and full of energy, showing us everything she promised. Due to the crowds from Golden Week, we had to hustle to cover everything, but since she knew the areas so well we had little difficulty. What I liked most was her effort to contact us before the trip and make sure we knew what was to be included, we covered what we wanted to see, and we knew how much walking was involved. There were no unwanted surprises. Her English was very good, well above the level of many other English speaking guides used on group tours. Thanks for a great time.
Hayama Town in the Miura Peninsula is located in the south of Tokyo and next to Kamakura. It is famous as a quiet seaside resort with the Imperial Villa. It is blessed with beautiful nature and mild climate. The splendid view of bright ocean, open blue sky and green hills welcome visitors. Hayama has been a very popular resort for more than 100 years. Around the Imperial Villa, well-known business leaders and artists built their cottages. Some of them are now used for museums and restaurants.
