    Special one day walking tour in Kamakura

    7 hours 30 min

    Kamakura is one of three ancient capitals of Japan, filled with historical temples and shrines and traditional culture. But things are different from those in Kyoto because Kamakura thrived under samurai government; simple but solemn and energetic. Also its beautiful nature adds extra tastes. Kamakura is one of my favorite places, and I’m sure you’ll love it too!! This tour also takes you to 'Masamune' swordsmith workshop and green tea experience. Please join me!!
