This is a day tour to enjoy the best of Kamakura, a medieval city of samurai warriors, surrounded by hills facing the ocean. During the late 12th to early 14th centuries zen and other popular schools of buddhism flourished there, and therefore, Kamakura has many beautiful temples in a lush green setting. It is possible to arrange your tour to suit your needs and interests, such as zen vegetarian meals or a short hiking.

Kamakura Tour Reviews

Amazing experience

Five stars to Fumie. She is very kind and very knowledgeable about the area. We were a big group and she happily helped all of us with a smile on her face.

Jorge M.

Thank you Jorge san, for using me yesterday. Your group was fantastic. It was my great pleasure to be a part of your special vacation.

Fumie was great!

Wonderful tour and Fumie was able to change everything when we realized that the day of the tour would be rainy. She moved everything up a day earlier and did a great job of planning a fun day and allowing us to see all the highlights. Highly recommend Fumie!
