Starting from your hotel at 9:00 we will in 1 hour time arrive at Kamakura where there are historical temples, shrines and a great Buddha statue surrounded by evergreen hills and a long crescent sand beach. From Enoshima Island on the shore you may probably see Mt. Fuji. As the seaside town Kamakura is famous for its fresh seafood cuisines.
At your hotel
Temples (Kamakura Five Temples (Zen Buddhism) built in the middle of 13th Century are famous for their ascetic practices even today))
Tsurugaoka Shrine, where the last Minamoto Shogun was killed like a Shakespeare's tragedy, and Zeniarai Benten are famous
Though slightly smaller than Todai-ji's in Nara, Hase Great Buddha is the symbol of Kamakura with adjacent Hase Temple.
Enoshima Island (You can visit it by nostalgic Enoshima Electric Railway running along the sea side. There is a observatory tower. )
At your hotel
By Japan Railway you can go to Kamakura from Tokyo or Shijuku Sta. within one hour without changing trains. Kamakura itself is rather a small seaside town, but it is very popular as the place where the first shogunate (Kamakura Era) was located from 1192 for 1333. During such 150 years, unlike in Kyoto, they created their own cultures especially relating with Zen Buddhism. Every tour spot is within walking distance to the next. And if you are strong enough you can drop by Yokohama on the way back to Tokyo.
guide fee, hotel pick-up in 23 wards area of Tokyo, etc... ,
transportation fee (you and guide), lunch, dinner, entrance fee, etc... ,
Since every road in Kamakura is very crowded throughout a year, a tour using a van or a coach is not so convenient.
Though it rained most of the day we had a good look around Tokyo. Yasuro was a polite patient guide with great knowledge.

We enjoyed the service provided by Mr Yasuro. He is knowledgeable and we learnt quite a good deal about Japan, especially from our small talks while traveling. Recommend his service.
Dear Mr Jonah and family, Thank you very much for your warm and generous review for me. I do hope that your beloved boy will be doing well and become a violinist like Yo-Yo-Ma of cello. Until then take care of your selves. See you one day again! Regards, Yasu
Hi. My family and I recently traveled to Tokyo for a one week stay. While there we arranged, through TripleLights, for several day tours. One of our tours, a day tour from Tokyo to Kyoto, was arranged and chaperoned by Yasuro. He picked us up at our hotel in Diaba at 7 AM sharp and we took the Shinkansen to Kyoto and back. Yasuro had planned an itinerary that included a number of sites we were interested in visiting in Kyoto, including the Fushimi Inari Shrine. The day was carefully planned out to make the best use of our time without causing us to feel rushed. We had ample time to spend at each location. Yasuro was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable about Kyoto. Near the end of our trip he even took us to a shopping street downtown that was filled with numerous, interesting shops and eateries. All in all we had a wonderful day and Yasuro delivered us back to the hotel by 9:30 PM, tired but very pleased.
Dear Mr. Tony, Thank you very much for your warm review on me! However, my regret is Nishiki Shopping Street that was too long for you to walk through. I am really sorry about it. Anyhow I am very pleased that all of you came back home in US without big troubles. Take care of yourself. Thank you again. Best regards, Yasuro
