-It takes about one hour from the center of Tokyo such as Shinjuku station to Kamakura station.
-I advise that you wear walking shoes as Kamakura Tour is basically walking tour.
-In case of bad weather like heavy rain, snow, wild wind or scorching summer heat, I reorganize the alternative route which may be easier to walk than mountain path.
-Whenever you get too tired to walk, I can easily arrange a taxi to bring us to the nearest points of the spots.
-It costs just over 1000 yen by taxi to Zeniarai Benzaiten Shrine/Sasuke Inari Shrine from Kamakura station just in case of facing difficulty.

“ 2 perfect days with Masa! ”

I don't have enough positive things to say about Masa. He was knowledgeable, speaks perfect English, is very worldly, interesting, gracious and had a great sense of humor! Not only did we learn a lot from him but we had a ton of fun. In addition to taking us to see the amazing sights of Tokyo, he took us to delicious restaurants during lunch so that we could experience the food as well. We highly recommend booking as many days as possible with him!

Very Good

“ Everything was perfect and according to the plan that I have imagine for my family to enjoy our visit and tour in Japan. ”

Masaharu has made our trip am remarkable and a memorable one thay will last in our lifetime! The rich and great insights he shared about Japan was encapsulated in the 2 days trip we shared with him. His passion for sharing the rich culture of Japan has captivated our hearts to even embraced a deep respect of Japanese cultures and traditions. Thus if in the near future that we will be having an opportunity again to come visit and be back in Japan, we'll definitely have Masaharu with us who is already of part of our family. Kudos Masa Job well done! Cheers!
