It was a very good trip with a very experienced guide Eri. Even though weather was very hot, she kept on explaining every detail with a great energy. We are a family with two babies and Eri was very understanding and patient about their needs. Since we are Muslims, she arranged us a very nice lunch in a beautiful restaurant. We wish to see some more places soon with Eri, especially “Enoshima Island”. We recommend her to everyone who are looking for a joyful trip. Thank you very much for everything Eri...
Dear Musa, Thank you so much for your review!! That was a great trip inspite of the very hot weather. What I'd been concerned about was almost no problem due to the very good care you and your wife took of your small children. I was very happy to see your son was enjoying running around and watching ants on top of Cape Inamuragasaki, where we had a nice ocean breeze. I'm looking forward to showing you all Enoshima Island next time. It was great meeting you and your family! Best regards, Eri
Eri made our family’s day trip to sublime Kamakura most memorable. She is enthusiastic, charming, flexible, and has excellent English skills. Eri shared with us that she studied history at university, and her command of Japanese history was evident throughout the tour. She explained rituals, filled us in on legends, and pointed out iconic images and design features at the Zen temples and Shinto shrines we visited. Travelling with our teenage son, we were concerned that his attention might wane, but Eri kept us all engaged. Have you ever been inside a giant bronze Buddha? Have you ever seen the 800-year-old workshop of Japan’s greatest sword smith, Masamune? Have you sipped macha in a forest of tall bamboo trees where the silence is broken only by leaves rustling in the breeze? We have Eri to thank for these experiences, as well as many more. We had a fantastic tour. If you’re traveling to Japan, don’t miss Kamakura and when you go, we’d highly recommend you spend the day with Eri.
Dear Ted, Thank you so much for your review with many kind words! I'm very happy to read it. The highlight of the tour was the surprise your son got at Masamune Sword and Blade Workshop, wasn't it? It was so lucky for him to have a chance to hold a real sword, which happens only once in a blue moon. I hope he treasures the memory along with other sceans we enjoyed on the day in Kamakura. It was really great meeting you all! Best wishes, Eri
We would highly recommend Eri for everyone who is looking for quality tour.
Dear Oksana, Thank you so much for your review! I myself had a great time with your family. Your suggestion of starting the tour one hour earlier worked very well, didn't it? We could enjoy the quietness of the bamboo grove with matcha green tea leisurely at Hokokuji Temple and didn't have to wait in line at the very popular restaurant to have great lunch. Hydrangeas were beautiful everywhere and there was a nice breeze blowing all through the tour. Again thank you very much for visiting Kamakura and it was great meeting you all!! Best wishes, Eri
We spent the day with Eri visiting the sights in Kamakura. Eri has a delightful personality and a great sense of humor. She is very knowledgeable of Japanese history and culture. She takes the time to describe what you're seeing and the wealth of history in each place you may visit. Eri is very patient and will answer any questions you may have. We also enjoyed a nice lunch with her during the tour. She kept us on schedule and helped us get back to the train station at the end of our tour. Thank you for a great experience!
Dear Richard, Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! And thank you for the nice photos you sent me. Each of the photos gets me back to the great time we shared in Kamakura. With refreshing breeze around us we could enjoy the fresh green when we strolled through the residential areas dropping by those historical places. And your happy smiles during the lunch time made me happy too. It was so great meeting you and your family!! Sincerely, Eri
Eri’s wonderful guided trip around Kamakura was the highlight of out trip to Japan. She was very knowledgeable and explained everything in great detail. Besides the main sites, she took us through interesting neighborhoods and a delicious restaurant for lunch. Most of all, Eri was extremely flexible and helpful with my elderly parents. She was able to make adjustments at the last minute to our walking tour to accommodate my father’s difficulties with walking. Eri’s tour is a must!
Dear Jacqueline, Thank you so much for your review! I'm very happy that you and your family enjoyed Kamakura's walking tour at the best time of spring in Japan. Although I was sorry about your father's difficult condition, I was impressed that he was so thoughtful and kind to his other family and that he was always trying to let the tour keep goin on for them. I really hope his legs and back get better soon. And I hope you visit Kamakura again sometime in the future. It was great meeting you all! Sincerely, Eri
