“ Easy and wonderful Kamakura ”

We had a very good time. Our guide Hiroshi was very polite, conversant and knew Kamakura very well. Knowing which temples were the ones we will love to see. He also made good suggestions on what to have for lunch after reserving the place. We had an easy time moving around.

Hi Annabelle san, It was a pleasure to guide you and Ben san and once again I do hope you have enjoyed the tour I enjoyed myself listening to your stories too and that is one of the reasons why I love this job I hope you will have a safe trip back home Sincerely, Hiroshi Yamasaki

“ Wonderful tour ”

We loved the tour. Hiroshi picked up in our hotel and then we traveled to Kamaura. First we enjoyed a delicious japanese food in a very typical restaurant and then we visited the Temple of Buddah and a beauttiful shintoist shrine. He was very kind and explained us a lot of japanese culture and traditions. We are thinking tu return with our daughters and of course call Hiroshi again!

Dear Socorro san, Thank you for your comment. You and Serafin san were so friendly, making it easier for me to guide you through the city. I did enjoy listening to the culture in your country, especially the story about Mariachi. I hope to see your lovely daughters someday and next time i will bring my family too. Please take care and enjoy the cruise. Keep entertaining me via ******* posts! Sincerely, Hiroshi Yamasaki
