Very Good

“ 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.

“ 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!
