Overview

On this tour, we will visit some popular spots in Kamakura: Kotokuin Temple (Great Buddha), Tsurugaokahachimangu Shrine, Hokokuji Temple (Bamboo garden), Engakuji Temple, Zeniaraibenzaiten Shrine, etc. We will also enjoy shopping and museums.

What to Expect

Kamakura is located in the south of Tokyo. After traveling in less than one hour away from busy Tokyo, you will get to another world. On this tour, we will walk and see impressive temples, shrines and beautiful gardens while breathing in fresh air of green hills and sea breeze. You can expect a relaxing atmosphere in Kamakura.
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.
In modern times, Kamakura got very popular as a resort because it has a beautiful nature and mild climate. Kamakura is a compact city, but has a great variety of contents in it, such as many historic spots, beautiful nature, arts and crafts, and delicious food. They will surely fascinate you!
Please choose two or three main areas as follows : (1) Hase Area, (2) Central Area, (3) East Area, (4) Kita-Kamakura Area, (5) Mountain side Area. It takes about 2 or 3 hours for sightseeing on each area. In some areas, we use a bus or train in a short time. If you have some request for a visit to any other spots, do not hesitate to ask me about that. I'll arrange for you.

“ Nice Day In Kamakura ”

We were a little late arriving at the train station, however, Yu was a trooper and stuck around for our arrival. It was very easy to find her as she had a sign with my name raised high above her head. Yu had hand drawn a cute map outlining our day trip. We visited a couple of temples, the bamboo garden and the Great Buddha. Yu was very knowledgeable of the history of each site visited. Yu was very patient as we slowed down the tour as we stopped many times to take pictures. I would definitely take another tour with Yu.

“ Great guide ”

Had a great time traveling with Yu for two days. Walked a lot, saw a lot. She focused on customizing my tour for the things I like the most—stationery and kitchenware stores. She was very attentive to my needs and concerned about my comfort. Would recommend her to anyone interested in a very thoughtful and kind guide.

“ Fantastic evening tour ”

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.
