Tour Important Information

To enjoy Kamakura tour, you had better walk. In this tour you will walk about one hour intermittently. I advise you to wear walking shoes.

This tour is a bit of rapid one. So if you want to spend more time at a certain spot than I expected, we may change the schedule a bit.

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.

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.
