In the eastern Japan, Kamakura is one of the best (if not THE BEST) places to witness the deapths of Japanese history. While Kyoto is a capital established by aristocrats, Kamakura is a capital built and nurtured by samurai worrior class. Its culture is simple and dynamic. My guiding point is History, Culture, Natural Beauty and Zen spirit, not to mention authentic Japanese food of your preference (or choice in any ways)!! I would like you to see the unique historical sites of over 800 years.

Meeting Point

At your hotel or at JR Kamakura Station

- Please specify your desired meeting point

08:00 AM

Your hotel in Tokyo (The New Otani Hotel, etc.)

I will pick you up at your hotel in Tokyo but if you would like to start the tour at JR Kamakura Station to save your touring time, I would be happy to accomodate. It means you will come to JR Kamakura Station by yourselves (which is easy) and meet me there. That way, you will have 11 full hours in Kamakura. Or if you feel comfortable with me picking you up at your hotel and escort you to get to Kamakura, I can do that also. It will be your choice. Duration of time from any hotel in Tokyol to Kamakura using public transportation is 1.5 - 2 hours and one-way public transportation cost is approximately 1000 Japanese Yen (J. Yen) which is about US$8.

10:00 AM

JR Kamakura Station

Start Kamakura Sight-seeing from JR Kamakura Station

10:30 AM

Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine

Depart JR Kamakura Station and walk to one of Japan's most prestegious Shinto Shrines, Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine. We will see the magnificent facilities of The Shinto Shrine and I will walk you through Shinto rituals. (10:30 - 11:30) . Admission Free.

11:50 AM

Minemoto Restaurant, Kamakura Headquarters

Enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine at this 100 year old restaurant. You could enjoy Tempura of all sorts, Soba (Buck Wheet Noodle) and variety of Donburi (Meats or Seafood or Vegetables cooked on top of seansoned rice in a bowl). Budget J. Yen 2500 (US$20)

01:30 PM

Hokokuji Temple

700 year old Buddhist Temple - famous for its gorgeous bamboo forest (2000 bamboo trees). At this temple, you could enjoy Maccha (Powdered Green Tea) session viewing traditional Japanese Garden. Admission only→J. Yen 300 (US$2.50). Plus J. Yen 600 (US$4.50) if you sit and enjoy the green tea. This green tea session is available subject to seat availability.

03:00 PM

World's famous Great Buddha Statue of Kamakura

Great symbol of Kamakura. Unlike its equivalent, the great Buddha of Nara, this sits in the open air, making it visible from afar as well as up close. I will take your pictures with this handsome great Buddha behind you. Admission J. Yen 300 (US$2.50)

04:00 PM

Hase Temple

This is the only temple in Kamakura that commands a scenic beauty of the ocean (Pacific). The main hall enshrines Japan's largest carved-wooden statue - the 11-headed goddess of mercy. The pathway extends vertically for several levels of sites of interest, including gorgeous hydrangers (more than 2000 blossoms) in late spring to early summer. This temple is like a theme park with a hidden cave in which you could adventure finding secret small Buddhism statues and Japanese gardens. Admission J. Yen 400 (US$3)

05:30 PM

JR Kamakura Station

Depart JR Kamakura Station heading back to your hotel in Tokyo at about 19:00. If you wish to finish the tour in Kamakura at 19:00, not at your hotel in Tokyo, you could do so which will give you the time to visit Enoshima Island with me. My #1 concern is your satisfaction, so we do not need to worry too much about some extra time. If we should visit Enoshima, the admission will be J. Yen 1,100 (US$8).

07:00 PM

Your hotel in Tokyo or desired point

Please specify your desired terminating poing.

Tokyo

Basic concept of this tour is to cover all the key sites of Tokyo. You will see both the old and new faces of Metropolitan Tokyo. Tokyo has a unique and dynamic history after its designation as Japan's capital in 1868. This tour is based on public transportation, so it will involve some walkings but I will accommodate the amount of walking depending on how much you wish to walk. Regardless of the season, I will include the seasonal beauty of Tokyo for your fullest satisfaction.

Kamakura, the birthplace of Zen Buddhism, is a beautiful residential area dotted with zen temples. The Great Buddha is another highlight. The Pacific Ocean’s gentle breeze adds to the tranquil atmosphere. We’ll find the most suitable mix of destinations to match your interests and physical exertion level. (See the ITINERARY) A walking tour is good value for money (H1)! We’ll get to experience 5 temples and shrines! For a more leisurely pace, a bus and a taxi are best. See you in Kamakura!
