Kamakura is a very healing city, which became the capital of Samurai at the end of the 12th century, and has a lot of temples where we can see lovely flowers.
We will ride a train for approximately an hour or so from Tokyo/Yokohama/Kawasaki area to visit there.
Appreciating the flowers, some temples and shrines, we can also enjoy the beautiful twilight seaview.
At the lobby of your hotel in Tokyo/Yokohama/Kawasaki or Yokohama Station/Sakuragicho Station/Kamakura Station
At your hotel or the places you prefer to during the tour
We will visit the typical temples and shrines in Kamakura. Even you're not a Buddhist nor a Shintoist, I guess you can feel the soothing power of the ancient capital. You can have a relaxing time there. About the Bamboo temple, we will go to the less crowded but nice one.
About the shopping options, it is possible to visit the places after visiting the temples/shrines in the evening, because some stores of Komachi Street are opened till 19:00.

I could also guide KYOTO, HIMEJI etc. if you will cover my transportation fare round trip from Tokyo.

Tokyo is not a compact city, but a huge one.
If you have difficulties with stairs, please tell me in your message. Thank you.
The hydrangeas are beautiful during the rainy season, so I'm giving a SPECIAL DISCOUNT now.
We will walk a lot, so please wear walking shoes like sneakers.
(If you don't want to, please tell me the places you'd like to visit and I will arrange it that way.)
In some temples, you're supposed to take off your shoes when getting in the buildings to keep the places clean, so please be ready for that.
It is optional, but I wish you would have Matcha, Japanese tea, at Joumyoji where we can appreciate it while looking at a Zen garden or at Tsuruoka Hachimangu.
There is also a place that you can make your own Matcha if you would like.
Kamakura is extremely crowded, so sometimes you might not be able to have a seat on the buses or trains.
If you would like all the options, it might take an extra hour. I love you to see the most of Kamakura, so about the extra hour, I would only ask for the necessary transportation fare.
We had a great first day with Yoko in Tokyo. She was very friendly, on time, very helpfull. We learned how to use the metro system and Yoko showed us so many places in one day. She answered all of our questions , we learned a lot. She is the best !!!
I appreciate your great review, Mr. Vo. We enjoyed the highlights of Tokyo together. Meiji JIngu Shrine was much nicer with the Shigosan season and Chrysanthemums. It was really nice talking to both you and your amazing wife. I hope you could enjoy your cruise around Japan, too. I wish you will come to Japan soon again. Thank you again!!
highly recommendable perfect guide, reliable, picked us up at our hotel which she checked out before our arrival, very energetic two days program, took us to great places, good mixture of shrines/temples, parks and gardens, excellent restaurants for lunch, local shopping streets with few tourists, we used trains and subway, we had a great time with here
I appreciate your great review, Silvia san. I enjoy the two days with you and Bruno san. We enjoyed great sushi lunch at an extremely popular restaurant the first day and eel and yakitori lunch on the second day. We covered a lot during the two days because both of you were so fit and didn't complain about walking a lot. I hope your dogsitter liked the souvenirs we found together. Please come again to see the Cherry blossoms soon. Please enjoy the Kinmokusei aroma till then. Thank you again, Yoko
Yoko is a great tour guide. She was flexible, listen to what we wanted to see and did the tour efficiently, Her English is excellent because she spent many years in USA. We did Kamakura and Yokohama in one day from Tokyo. Started at 9 am and we were home by 5. She went out of her way to reserve a Chinese restaurant for us. And gave us advice about shopping in Ginza. Can’t go wrong with Yoko.
I appreciate your review so much, Jacqueline san. We got back to your hotel a little pass 5 but we could cover a lot in a day because both of you could walk and do stairs without troubles. We visited the Great Buddha, Hasedera Temple, soba lunch, Cup Noodle Museum, Park overlooking Yokohama Harbor and Chinatown. It was nice seeing you having different ice creams. Actually the booking was done by the Concierge but there are many Chinese restaurants in Tokyo too so please check them the next time you come in the future. It was nice talking and meeting both of you. Thank you again, Yoko
I went on a tour with my wife and our 8 year old daughter. Yoko was great and showed us more than we could have seen on our own. It was a very full 8 hours and we were happy and exhausted by the end. Thanks Yoko!!
Thank you so much for a nice review, Christopher san. It was a pleasant day to enjoy the tea ceremony, Okonomiyaki lunch, view from Marunouchi Building, East Gardens of Imperial Palace and Asakusa. I hope you, your wife and Chloe will enjoy Kyoto too. Maybe the gates that you asked about is the Torii Gates of Fushimi Inari Shrine. You can enjoy some street foods near Kiyomizu Temple. Please have fun!!
