“ Adventure to Kamakura ”

Ryuta provided an excellent journey to ancient Samurai capital of Kamakura. Meeting us in Tokyo provided a stress free day of travel all the way to escorting us back to Tokyo. One of us is a vegetarian and Ryuta went to extra efforts to find the perfect lunch spot. Overall a terrific day outside of Tokyo.

Ryuta was easy to communicate with prior to the tour, he even went out of his way to try and find out about a possible sumo stable visit before we met. We were due to visit Kamakura and Ryuta made travelling to the area very easy by meeting us at our apartment in Tokyo. The tour itself was very informative and he was happy to accommodate our request to visit the Studio Ghibli shop in Kamakura. At the end of the tour Ryuta kindly took us back to Tokyo, to a different location so we could see a local festival. Ryuta went out of his way to make it an enjoyable day for our family.
