Hi, I'm Takao Mizushima. I like walking with my friends in the mountains, along rivers and beaches, and visiting historical places and museums. Usually, after enjoying these places, we take a dip in hot springs and drink beer.
As a guide, however, I'll take up places easy to walk around. I assume not many people from abroad are prepared for sweating activities.
If you like, though, I can modify my plan, connecting with a short hiking, hot bath and a drinking place.
The prices below are for a private tour for you and your partner, family or friends.

Takao is one of the most dedicated and detail-oriented people I have ever met. He went to great extremes to provide detailed instructions for transportation to/from our tour over several emails, he provided color copies of additional information for all of the sites we visited and he spent extra hours with us since our timeline went slightly askew. Takao was truly a pleasure to be around and his knowledge of history was invaluable. He is a humble and very kind man - he made our visit to Hase and Kamakura unforgettable!
Thank you Mike, Carrie, Sophie, and Harry for your good review! I’m very happy to have been able to guide such a nice family like you around the beautiful city of Kamakura. It looks like it is a gorgeous day in Kyoto. Have a nice trip!
