Kamakura & Enoshima: It's Shownan Time!

Kamakura

Felt at ease in Japan

We were a group of four with Haruo for 3 days of tours. He was an excellent guide who planned tours according to our interests. Haruro was indispensable in teaching us how to navigate the train, subway, and bus system. He was very flexible as we were attracted to sites and shops along the way. Haruro was consistently patient answering our questions. We would highly recommend him to first time visitors to Japan.

Robert E.

Thank you, Robert, Rose, Dan, and Lorry. It is me that have to thank you. I have enjoyed the tour with you. This message encourages me to improve my guide business. I pray Great Buddha for your safe and wonderful trip in Japan.

Tokyo: First Day on Your Trip to Japan

Tokyo
9 hours

First day in Tokyo

Sadly it was rainy and very windy so our trip itinerary changed significantly. However the highlight of our day was the ability to use the public transit system which allowed the remainder of our time in Tokyo the freedom to move around the city with confidence. Hauro was excellent at helping us book things before we arrived and offered good suggestions. However if it is a rainy day perhaps research some alternate ideas. Lunch at 1030 wasn’t ideal! However, we are easy going. Thanks for the intro to the transit Hauro! .

Kamakura "Zen Culture" Finding Tour

Kamakura
8 hours

Do you know a Japanese word, "Bushido" or samurai spirit? About 800 years ago, Kamakura became the center of the first samurai military government. Samurai warriors had austere lives. They were brave and didn't cling to life. They willingly devoted their lives to their jobs. How come they could get that extreme mindset? The secret was Zen Buddhism. Let's find Zen culture through visiting iconic Zen temples, Zen gardens, and experiencing Japanese distinctive beauty in this ancient capital city.
