Important

Toshogu Shrine is built in a deep forest and has a lot of steep stairs. Please be aware that it is pretty hard to go up and down those steep staircases with strollers.
The staircases were made of stones and pretty slippery on a rainy day and just after a rain. Please come with walking shoes.
We need to remove shoes in the worship hall and adjacent building so please do not forget to put on socks or stockings. The floor of the shrine is cold.

“ Kamakura Tour with Reiko ”

Was able to experience an epic memorable day in Kamakura Japan from Tokyo with friendly, profesional, well spoken Reiko! I not only gathered so much knowledge, Japanese culture, navigation of the transit system, but also a person who will remain a handprint on my life travel experiences. She was informative, used visuals, responded to any questions and provided me with an incredible day.

RIEKO:

Margery san, Thank you very much for your warm words. I myself had a very good time with you on a very fine day! I love Kamakura and am glad you have a very good memory of Kamakura. It was a happy time for me to have been with you and shared a lot of stories. Have a nice time on the last day in Japan and I am looking forward to seeing you again soon. Take care.
