Kamakura is called "Kyoto of Eastern Japan", because it used to be the capital of Japan from 12th to 14th century, and the first government by the Shogun, a top of samurai warriors, was located here.

Kamakura offers numerous temples, shrines and other historical monuments.

In this tour, we will visit three famous temples and one shrine.

Personally, I love Kamakura so much and strongly recommend this tour to you, because there are so many beautiful places here.

Kamakura Tour Reviews

Knowledgeable and thorough

Hideaki is a very knowledgeable, thorough, and attentive guide. His plan for the day was very well thought out and precisely measured. He guided us through every step in the journey and knew where to go, how long it would take, when we'd need to get there, and when we'd have to leave. He even went as far as trying to find my son the ice cream he wanted. Highly recommended!

Leonid san, Thank you very much for your review. I hope you enjoyed the tour even though we couldn't see Mt. Fuji well. Have a good trip in Japan!! Hideaki Murayama

Relaxing Day in Nikko

Hideaki M guided us smoothly along all the steps of our perfect day in Nikko. He arrived at our hotel prepared for the day with our train tickets in hand. He had visuals prepared to help us understand what we would be seeing. He was thorough in pointing out various details about all the shrines, temples, and even the vegetation in the area that we were visiting. We highly recommend Hideaki M as a guide to Nikko.

Robert-san, Thank you very much for your review. As you are so interested in Japanese history and culture, I also enjoyed chatting with you and your wife. Fortunately, it was a fine day and not so crowded. Have a nice trip in Japan. Best Regards, Hideaki Murayama

Kamakura & Tokyo

I had the great pleasure of spending 2 days in the company of Hideaki on 5th & 6th April 2024, when we visited Kamakura and toured Tokyo. Hideaki proved to be a very competent and knowlegeable guide and had no problem at all to fit all my requests into his preplanned itinerary. The visit to Kamakura proved to be of great interest with visits to the 13m high bronze Great Bhudda, Buddhist Zen Temples and Shinto Shrines. To have a guide who was able to give detailed explanations about various aspects of Japan's two major religions, certainly enhanced my experience of this great city which was once the political centre of medieval Japan. We took lunch at a local Japanese restaurant where I prepared my own okonomiyaki...a great way to sample "everyday" Japanese food. After a stroll down "Cherry Blossom Street", we explored the local market....and of course, various street foods bringing the days activities to a very satisfiying end :) Day 2 in Tokyo began with visits to the fish market, Asakusa (with its unique blend of traditional and modern cultures, including the iconic Sensoji Temple) and the Meiji Shrine (where I had the privilige of seeing part of a Japanese wedding ceremony). Along the way, I had ample opportunity to sample more street food and purchase souvenirs. The Shibuya Crossing was a fanatstic experience but nothing prepared me for the sight of the fabulous Cherry Blossom in full bloom at Ueno Park - Absolutely amazing !! My trip to Japan could not have had a better start.... So a huge "Thank You" Hideaki, not only for your company but for being a knowlegeable, conscientious and very competent guide ! With Very Best Wishes, Stephen.

Stephan-san, Thank you very much for your review. I think we really had good two days with full blooming cherry blossoms. I also enjoyed chatting with you. Best Regards, Hideaki Murayama

My favorite part of this tour is when I take you to Arakurayama Sengen Park where we can have the most beautiful view of Mt. Fuji with five-story pagoda. I think this is the best place for Mt. Fuji viewing, but it is located in a little bit complicated place. So, I can take you here in the most efficient way.
