Kamakura Tour Reviews

We Had a Great Tour- A lot of Walking

Our day with Yasuro was great. We saw many great sites and he knew a lot of information. Be prepared because it is a lot of walking. You could take taxi between sites at your cost.

Karen M.

Dear Karen & Family, Thank you very much for generous compliments on me. But, I’m sorry it must be a real tough day for three of you. We visited East n West Shinju first, then moved to Tokyo Station, went around Imperial Palace Garden by taxi, visited cherry blooming Ueno Park then to Asakusa for Sensoji Temple, Sumida Riverside, etc., by subway visited Ginza Streets and walked thru Pedestrian Paradise to Shimbashi Sta., and finally to Tokyo Tower on the steep hill. Please take rest for Hokkaido, your next destination, it should be much cooler and relaxing and the cherry flowers will be waiting for you. Have a good day! Best regards, Yasuro

Not what I was expecting!!

I am so sorry to write these bad review, But my experience was not good at all. 6 hour tour around the east side, but it was not like having a guide, more like wondering around the city, few words about this and that, but nothing really specific or interesting about the tradition , culture, about the place we were visiting. I must say we were a large group so bit of times to move around and it’s okay, but my group didn’t enjoy it at all. I could have done it by my self, honestly. I was hoping that having a Japanese guide would have been an additional Value to our first time in Japan and Tokyo, but eventually it was not. At all. I don’t reccomend him if you are looking for a real guide and more stories about Japan. Sorry

Alice B.

Dear Alice B., Thank you very much for your generous comment on my service. But you forgot one thing important that you are too the licensed tour organizer responsible for 17 young and old non-English speaking people. My responsibility is to take the people to every tour spot safely by the fixed time according to the itinerary and, if the time allowed, explain the history and cultures about every spot. But we delayed to every spot, I’m not blaming but, because our group was walking slow making a long line, and there were so many people almost everywhere on April 1st (Sat) such as Tsukiji, Asakusa and Ueno Shinobazu Pond. Maybe, instead of giving 24-hour subway pass to everyone, you would better to arrange a single tour bus for them, then the tour guide could speak about the history and culture of Tokyo all the way long as you liked. Finally, as my advice, Akihabara is not the right place for big group of young and old to visit after dark; I will forget about the overtime of my guide fee for one hour, but please remember that you have not paid me my lunch expenses and transportation fees during the tour as stipulated in our agreement yet. Regards, Yasuro

Tokyo trip

Yasuro did an excellent job helping us around Tokyo for 2 days. We provided him with a list of things we wanted to see and he was able to put together an itinerary that limited travel time between sights. He was also able to provide background and stories to make each of the stops more interesting. He picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off each day. Yasuro was even able to make suggestions for places to eat in the evening.

Mark M.

Dear Mark Miller and family, Thank you very much for generous compliments. Yes, it was my good experience too in visiting unique museums such as Hokusai Museum, Japanese Sword Museum and Ghibli Museum. Unfortunately, cherry blooming didn’t start while your stay in Tokyo, but I guess all of you enjoyed yourselves with the views of Kyoto. Please visit Japan again for there are many other nice places to see. Thank you again! Best regards, Yasuro
