Informative & Thoughtful

We had a great morning with Junku. She added some extra stops to our itinerary when we were running ahead of schedule, brought us maps / recourses on the city, offered to take photos at the best places, and booked us a sushi lunch to enjoy once the tour was over. Very knowledgeable guide!

Christine R.

Thank you for a wonderful review, Christine! I was very glad to introduce Tokyo to you and your husband. Hope you will come back to Japan with your children for skiing! Thank you. Junko

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!
