I’m so excited to have a chance to show you around my favorite spots in Kanagawa prefecture. I was born in Kanagawa. I spent my whole school life, including university, here in Kanagawa. I worked as a high school English teacher here for 40 years. I love Kanagawa so much. We have many interesting tourist spots, like Hakone, Kamakura, Enoshima and Yokohama. I got my tour guide license in English in 2009. I am still an English teacher. To give an interesting and impressive lesson to young high school students, I’ve learnt and gathered many kinds of information. I also have a license to teach social studies, so I have a wide range of knowledge about Japanese culture and history. I’m sure to provide you an interesting tour.                                                                                                                                 

Yokohama Tour Guide - Haruo T.

(10 reviews)

I live in Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture. I have a license to teach in high schools and was admitted to the degree of Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language in the University of Birmingham. Until 2015 I had been teaching English at public high schools in Kanagawa for 37 years. During that time, I had some experience of guiding students from overseas through sister-school relationship around Tokyo and Kanagawa. Therefore, I had good command of English with the TOEIC score of 935. As for a tour guide experience I earned the certificate of National Government Licensed Guide-Interpreter in English and since then I have guided tourists to the popular sites around Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura and Yokosuka. My guiding focuses on introducing not only Japanese historical and cultural backgrounds but also giving tourists some tips to travel Japan only by themselves, such as how to use trains and subways, find good restaurants, reserve tickets, buy survenier, and speak basic Japanese. In addition, my tour includes opportunities to experience Japanese culture like Zen meditation, ninja performance, visiting anime's location sites based on tourists' request. Besides, by means of my hobbies of writing English Haiku and Waka (traditional Japanese poems) and performing Rakugo (traditional Japanese funny story telling) in English, I can surely entertain tourists during the tour. My moto as a tour guide is let the tourists have a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Japan with my profound, intelligible and interestiog guiding.

Day Trips from Kamakura

Kamakura Tour Reviews

Kamakura day tour

I was communicating with Yao before purchasing a nine hour luxury van no guide tour with English speaking driver. He answered all questions, assured me that there was flexibility in the schedule and suggested another stop in addition to our requested stops. The train and public transportation option is attractive price wise but I believe that only with a dedicated vehicle it was possible to visit Houkokuji, Tsurugaoka Hachimanju, Komachi St (with time for browsing and street food), Hase-dera and Kotaku-in efficiently and in comfort. We were ahead of schedule so Tou asked if we wanted to make another stop, but it had been a full day and we were ready to head back to Tokyo. We were very satisfied with Tao. Where his English was unable to fully explain, google translate did the job. We were able to call Tou when we were ready to leave a stop so there was great flexibility in the schedule which you really appreciate when you see other groups loading onto their tour bus or drive by tourists waiting at the bus stop. I would recommend Fuji to anyone needing or wanting a private transportation. On a side note, toll and parking fees was estimated at about ¥5,000, but the actual cost was closer to ¥8,000.

Guy F.

Thank you for your review, we are very glad that you had a really good time. And we are looking forward to meeting you next time.

Great locations, great guide

We really enjoyed traveling to Kamakura and Yokosuka with Horuo. It was generally overcast (with a bit of rain) so we were often alone at some of the most popular tourist destinations in the area, and we were able to generally avoid the crowds with Haruo. Travel was very easy for us, and we learned a lot about Japan's history while on our adventures with him. Haruo is very knowledgeable about about the locations he took us to, and was able to bring each bridge and path to life with background we would have otherwise been oblivious to - stories of royalty, faith, assassination plot, wars, peace, and daily life for residents throughout history. There is so much we would have otherwise missed without Haruo, and we are deeply appreciative that we were able to share our travels with him.

Travis V.

Dear Trevis Thank you very much for your heartwarming review. This encourages me to improve my guiding. I was also very happy to have a tour with you. Please take care of yourselves. Best Regards Haruo

Knowledgeable Tour guide

I hired Itsumi to pick us up and drop us off at our hotel in Tokyo for a trip to Kamakura / Itsumi knows the area pretty well and showed us the main attractions- She try to include all our wishes and doesn’t mind to spend extra time - It was a pleasant trip- I will hire Itsumi again when I visit Japan again Nicole

Nicole L.
