About

I was born and raised in Kamakura. I have spent most of my life in Japan except 2 years in the U.S.
I am a certified national tour guide living in Kamakura.

There are many temples and shrines in Kamakura. Asakusa has a world-famous Senso-ji temple with Thunder Gate. They are not only the holly places where people come to worship but the historic sites where visitors can touch and feel the Japanese cultures and traditions.

I am very happy to share my knowledge with the foreign visitors who want to know about Japan.
Visiting the old historic places is the gateway to understand Japan.
Asakusa is in the downtown Tokyo. Kamakura is one hour from Tokyo station by JR train.

So why not come and join my tour. I am waiting for your reservation.

“ Day tour of kamakara ”

Takayasu was an excellent guide! His explanations were clear we, enjoyed the historical information he presented. He adjusted the day at our request, because of rain and our need to be at the airport for our return home. He made sure our bags were taken care of appropriately, walking us in to the counter . I would recommend him wholeheartedly !

Takayasu:

Hi Lorraine, Thank you very much for your great words appreciating my guiding. It is a geat honor for me to have such warm review on my Kamakura tour. It was raining hard in the morning but it became sprinkling by the time we arrived at a shrine and temples. Therefore,we could visit more spots than I ecpected. I am glad to know you liked my explanation. Both of you were so eager to listen to my historical presentation. There are lots more spots in this ancient city. So please come again and I am happy to guide you.

“ Highlight was seeing the wedding at the temple ”

Takayasu was full of information about the area. He knew exactly where to go in the quickest time and fitted in a tea ceremony for us. We ran out of time to complete the tour. We would recommend Takayasu and his tour to anyone

Takayasu:

Rosalie, thank you so much for your deep gratitude to me and my tour. I am happy to know that you enjoyed the wedding, tea ceremony and my talk, which is my utmost pleasure. I remember having Bento lunch to save our limited time. Please get in touch with me and set up another visit plan to Japan. Takayasu

“ Una muy buena elecci?n! ”

Solo tengo palabras de agradecimiento para el Sr, Takayama. Nos ayudo en nuestro primer dia en Tokio enseñándonos como viajar en los medios de transporte. Hicimos todo el recorrido contratado con muy buenas explicaciones y ajustándose a nuestro ritmo. Lo recomiendo si es q desean disfrutar del tour con una persona agradable, amable y divertida. Gracias Taka.

Takayasu:

Haydee y Bob, Mucho Gracious! Thank you very much for electing me as your guide. I am very happy that both of you were satisfied with my showing around the typical Tokyo and stories and legends. I want to guide a nice couple like you, Haydee and Bob again next time you visit Japan. Takayasu
