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.

“ Excellent guide ”

He knows a lot about Kamakura and told us many interesting things such as histories, recent stories and so on. His English is very fluent. Most impressive point about him was his flexibility. He always put us first and tried to meet our requests. Thanks Tak.

“ Had a wonderful experience in Kamakura with this guide. ”

I had a truly wonderful experience in visiting Kamakura by using him as a guide. His knowledge, kindness and humour allows me to enjoy my visit in Kamakura. He brought me to lots of interesting places there (such as Minamoto Yoritomo Tomb, great Buddha and Enoshima) and I really learned a lot from them. He is also very flexible and was able to accommodate his itinerary to include other places which I want to visit. We are becoming a good friends and I would certainly use his service again when visiting Kamakura area.
