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.

“ 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

“ Trip to Kamakura ”

The trip planning took a lot of time since we had only several hours that we could spend in Kamakura but we really wanted to see all the Temples and get a feel of this one of three great capitals of Japan. Takayasu was very attentive to details. Suggested several options for a trip. On the day of a trip he met us in hotel in Yokohama and we had a great time. Everything went exactly as planned, we accomplished entire itinerary. Takayasu took his time explaining us history of each Temple. I highly recommend Takayasu as a great guide and great human being, responsive to travelers needs and time limitations! Thanks Tak!

Takayasu:

Rosa, thank you very much for the highest appreciation by giving me the full score. You have surveyed our history and Kamakura. I also enjoyed telling you the legends and answering your questions. All of you are wonderful guests. I am extremely happy if you bring many pleasant memories back home and talk about them to your families and friends. Thank you again for your beautiful feedback!
