Kamakura Day Trip

We recently had the pleasure of joining a day trip to Kamakura, guided by the wonderful Yuka. From start to finish, the experience was nothing short of exceptional. Yuka's knowledge, enthusiasm, and genuine passion for Kamakura's rich history and culture made this tour one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. Yuka was incredibly well-organized and punctual. She communicated all the necessary details before the trip, ensuring everyone knew the meeting point, schedule, and what to expect. Her meticulous planning allowed us to make the most of our day without feeling rushed. I recommend Yuka highly enough for a day trip to Kamakura. Her expertise, warmth, and dedication to providing an unforgettable experience made this tour truly special. If you're looking for an enriching and enjoyable way to explore Kamakura, Yuka is the perfect guide. Thank you, Yuka, for an incredible day!!!

Rachel L.

Thank you very much for your wonderful comments about Kamakura tour. I'm happy to hear you really enjoyed the day. I hope you'll have good memories about temples with flower gardens, bamboo garden and maccha.

Beautiful day in Nara!

Yuka made our day in Hakone wonderful, and was very informative about the history. It was a great day and made navigating all around the lake very easy and saw areas of the lake we never would have thought to visit on our own.

Thank you, all of your family members, and thank you for warm comments, Alex. Your ideas and thoughts made it perfect. Your uncle's stories were impressive.

Excellent time seeing some of the best sites.

Yuka was a wonderful guide and made our first full day very worthwhile. Not only was she able to show us the best things. But she showed us how to purchase train tickets. And even where to go. This was helpful today and for the remaining days on our trip. In addition, she showed us a lot of free places to go such as the metropolitan building. Which is a 45 story observation deck and totally free versus paying a lot of money for the sky tree. Also had a nice view of Shabu Crossing. And took us to a lot of shopping, including the Nintendo one. You will likely be going back to many of these places, thank you for showing us around!

James S.

Thank you for nice comments, James. They are helpful for others. I'm happy you enjoyed Tokyo today. It was a quite unique tour. But thanks for your research, we had a good time.
