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. read more

“ AMAZING day tour in Tokyo!! ”

Masaharu was absolutely WONDERFUL as a tour guide for our first full day in Tokyo! :) He came right to our hotel and spent 7 full hours on the road with us; he helped us navigate the intimidating but very efficient subway system, and got us to many places within our time together! In all of places, he was extremely knowledgeable. Very kind, very knowledgable, and very accommodating; his English was great and he dealt with our decreased energy towards the end of the tour due to jetlag graciously. Don't hesitate to book, and if we are back to Tokyo again we will certainly request him! Arigato Gozaiomas Masaharu-san! :) Irfan, Jeewani, Jehan and Ifza; Newfoundland, Canada

“ Lucky to see the cleareast view of Mt Fuji ”

Masaharu was ok but it could have been better if he would share insights and historical background of the places we visited. We were lucky to see the clearest view of Mt Fuji and it was awesome! Overall we enjoyed our 1 day Hakone tour. Thanks Masaharu!

Masaharu:

Hello Florice, Thank you for your inspiring comments. It was great pleasure sharing wonderful time for viewing Mt Fuji from Hakone. Frankly speaking, if we had more time, we could have visited the museum. But If we did it, shops must have been already closed by the time we went there. As you noticed, shops immediately closed during your shopping. So, it was physically difficult to achieve both historical insights walk on the steep ground and comfortable walk around the lake and shopping with two year old baby with you. And it actually took around 11 hours totally. Anyway, thank you for your valuable advice. Masaharu
