We had the most amazing experience with a private full day tour with Masa. He is kind, engaging and so passionate about sharing his Kamakura knowledge. Communication prior to the tour was quick and he was flexible to allow us to start a bit earlier to fit in with other plans- this was great because it meant that at some places we could experience the temple without crowds. Although a busy day, we never felt rushed and as we used many backstreets got to experience a real sense of the town and its people. Million star rating if we could !! Thank you Masa - hope to see you again one day and explore Kamakura with you.
Hi Narelle and Bruce, Thank you for your positive review. Especially, I'm delighted to hear that you found the authentic Japanese lifestyle. We truly enjoyed our walks and conversations along the way, exchanging many ideas! I assume you're going to explore various destinations across Japan. I hope you'll savor the diverse aspects of my country. Have a fantastic trip! See you next time! Masa
We enjoyed our tour with Kaneo San thoroughly. He was very helpful and courteous on the messages before our trip and during the tour. He let us know beforehand that there are lots of walking involved and to wear comfy shoes and attire. He would wait for us throughout the trip (we walked slowly ; ) and told us the history and interesting story about the places. Thank you Kaneo San for sharing and guiding us. Thumbs up for your tour!
Thank you for your good review. You and your friends did really good in spite of too hot climate. I hope you enjoyed this walking tour and I have another chance to guide you in Japan.
Tomoko was an amazing guide. She catered for my mums energy levels and introduced everything so clearly. My mum had a great time taking in the views of Kamakura. Tomoko went the extra mile to check in with me the day before the tour to make sure everything was sorted. Will definitely need Tomoko's help next time mum is in town. Thank you so so much.
Thank you for your prompt review, Yue-san! It was a very hot day and there were many stairs on Enoshima, but we used the escalator and went up comfortably. We had planned to return by boat, but it was suddenly cancelled due to strong winds. We were relieved to be able to return via a back road with no stairs. Your mum and her friend were so nice telling me 'It's not your fault':) Then, we had a pleasant time in the shade of the trees at the Great Buddha. They were eagerly looking at the map on the train back. I'm looking forward to guiding them next time they come back. Thank you again!
What an incredible day with Taka visiting so many shrines and temples. His knowledge is absolutely amazing. He is such a kind person and it made the day all the better. He is so welcoming that I felt I was touring Japan with an old friend. Thank you Taka for a wonderful day. Please book with Taka when you come to Kamakura!
Thank you very much for your words that surely encourages me to introduce my hometown to visitors from all of the world. I am very happy that you enjoyed the tour in Kamakura. Thank you again for appreciating my tour guide. Taka
