Kamakura Tour Reviews

Solid Experience

Good English skills, flexible itinerary, good use of time, nice personality and aimed to please. Added some color, but not a tremendous amount of information beyond surface level commentary. I would definitely use him again. We used 4 guides while we were in Japan and I have the same suggestion as it relates to all 4. They will naturally take you to lunch at places that are in the path of the tour, are very inexpensive and mediocre food - because the fee does no cover the guide's lunch. If the food matters to you you, and if you are going to pay for the guide's lunch, which we did in every case, let them know that in advance and encourage them to take you to a little nicer place.

John W.

I am glad to know you enjoyed my guide. I had been a little uneasy because I guided you as a substitute because of our colleague's sudden illness and there were not much talking before the tour. I appreciate your proposal about lunch. I will talk about lunch with my quests beforehand from now on.

Cherry blossoms tell the start of Japanese spring. During cherry season, I will show you some of the best spots for "Hanami" in Tokyo. But the date of full blooming differs every year depending on the weather, which is hard to predict. Several predicting services compete in their predicting accuracy every year. Cherry blossoms usually start blooming late March and end at the beginning of April. They reach full blooming 7 days after starting and end 7 days later after full blooming.

Popular Tours in Kamakura

Bamboo Temple, Sugimoto Temple, and three other attractive spots in Kamakura

Kamakura
6 hours

Once the samurai capital of Japan, Kamakura is visited by as many as 20 million people a year. Some of the most popular spots among visitors are Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine, Great Buddha, and Hokokuji Temple nicknamed Bamboo Temple. On this tour, along with the three places, I would like to offer two more attractive spots to visit. We first visit three places in the north-eastern area of Kamakura, Bamboo Temple, popular for its bamboo glove with a teahouse serving powdered green tea, Sugimoto Temple, the oldest Buddhist temple in Kamakura dating back to the 8th century, Egara Tenjin, a shinto shrine enshrining deified Sugawara Michizane, the god of learning and scholarship. We take a bus to visit Bamboo Temple, but after that we enjoy strolling around the local residential areas while visiting two other places and the fourth destination, Tsurugaoka Hachiman Srine which was constructed by the first Shogun of the Kamakura Government. After coming back to Kamakura station, we take the Enoden Line to Hase station to visit the last destination, Great Buddha, an open-air Buddha sitting under the sun for some 750 years. This tour covers history of Kamakura from much before the establishment of the samurai government to just after the end of it, and of course, shopping in Komachi-dori street and at Masamune Sword and Blade Workshop by request.
