Kamakura Tour Reviews

Wonderful day

Yuko is a fabulous guide and I highly recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo.

Jodi  G.

Dear Jodi Thank you very much for your good review! You are really wonderful family, and I appreciate the chance of meeting you this time ! If you have another chance to visit our districts again, please count Yokohama, Kamakura, and Hakone as candidates. I'm looking forward to seeing you and your great family in the future again ! Have a nice trip in Japan !, and Good luck for all of you ! Yuko

Love Yuko!!

Four of us spent the day with Yuko and every moment was enlightening and fun. She goes above and beyond to look after her guests. She delivered a personal note to us the day before to our hotel room. She came a long distance out of her way (from Yokohama) to get us in the morning, was here and ready vary early, and had tremendous energy and enthusiasm about the places we visited. She took pictures of us everywhere and promised to send us the link to access them. She gave us a souvenir of the day with her. She had wonderful visual aids prepared to explain this legacy and history of the many spots we visited. We insisted on her return home and return to Tokyo which was way out of her way and she didn’t wanted to leave us alone. We highly recommend Yuko to anyone interested in visiting KAMAKURA. Great guide. Great location selection. Great advance communication ahead of the day so she could be prepared and provide us options. Great person. …and in a side alley we could have never found on our own, she got us to the best Ramen restaurant in the region, which was fantastic. Thanks Yuko!!

Jeff S.

Dear Jeff, Thank you very much for joining me on my tour today. And I really appreciate the great review!

Please continue to enjoy your trip throughout Japan. Next time you have the chance to come to Japan, please include my hometown, Yokohama, as one of the places you will visit! I look forward to seeing you again. I will send you some pictures by e-mail soon! I appreciate the opportunity to meet you all. Thank you so much. Yuko

Yokohama Fambam

This is our 10th visit to Japan and our 1st time to see Yokohama. We are fortunate to have discovered Yuko-san as tour guide for our family trip to Yokohama. Yuko-san made our family trip a truly memorable experience. We loved how knowledgeable and well organized she is. She sent us email messages with useful information weeks prior to the trip. She dropped by our hotel one day before our scheduled tour and left with the hotel concierge a handwritten welcome note with a detailed itinerary. On the day of our tour, Yuko-san and a colleague, Tatsuo-san arrived 30 mins early to welcome the group. The entire tour lasted for almost 8 hours and we enjoyed every minute of it. What endeared Yuko-san and Tatsuo-san to the group was their patience and attentiveness to the needs of the group. They are the most caring tour guides we have encountered in all of our trips to Japan. We highly recommend Yuko-san and Tatsuo-San as tour guides for Yokohama.

Arlene U.

Dear Arlene, Thank you so much for giving me such an excellent rating and a lovely thoughtful review! I'd like to say thank you for being given this chance to show you around in Yokohama. Nothing would make us happier than to see you love Yokohama. Tatsuo and I also enjoyed touring and had a wonderful time with you, wondeful family ! Thanks for coming to Yokohama and choosing me as your guide! I'm looking forward to your 2nd coming to Yokohama ! Sincerely, Yuko

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.
