Important

-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.

“ Trains & trains ”

My wife & I were met at the Yokohama cruise terminal by Masaharu and the day began. The journey, via train to Tokyo, was interesting but quite long at about 90 minutes with changes. We were very glad to have Masaharu to navigate the metro system, but we found the trip interesting and it gave us time to talk at length with our guide about life in Japan. The visit to the Imperial Palace area was interesting after which it was it was more trains to cross the city to the oldest area of Tokyo. More and more interesting information from our guide as we checked out the area and visited a famous restaurant for a typical Japanese lunch (it was inexpensive). Masaharu's command of English is very good because he used to live and worked for years in London for a major shipping company. With hindsight, for our next visit via a cruise ship, I would ask Masaharu to show us around Yokohama, which would require far less train trips, but we had to see Tokyo which, for us was a very small taste, that has wet our appetite for further visits. . I recommend Masaharu as a guide who loves his job and showing off his home town. If you are not sure what to see allow Masaharu to help you, depending on your interests and fitness.

“ 4 great days touring Tokyo and Kanakura ”

Had a very nice time with Mass, friendly, very polite, good historian. Met us and delivered us back to our hotel each day, changed up the itenerary when we wanted something different, like museums instead of more temples. Definitely take a day trip to Kamakura.

“ Perfect Trip to Fuji ”

Masa was a wonderful guide. He showed up early, navigated all of the trains and stops with ease and made wonderful recommendations for shopping and food. He even made a point to check out our location a week earlier to make sure it would be safe for us on the day of our trip. He is not only knowledgeable but very polite. I highly recommend Masa as your guide!
