On this tour, in the morning, we'll visit Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine which was founded by the first shogun of the first military government in Japanese history, and Great Buddha, which was constructed in the 13th century and is a symbol of Kamakura with a tender smile on its face. Then we'll take the Enoden Line, one of the most famous and characterful local railways in Japan, to Enoshima station. A little walk from the station is Enoshima Island, an island of the legend of a dragon and sea goddess, with three tutelary shrines for three goddesses of marine transportation, fishing, and traffic. The island has recently been very popular among many young couples as a power spot as well. On top of the island we can climb up on a lighthouse with a nickname of Sea Candle, the best scenary lookout to view the ocean and the coast line of Sagami Bay, and if you are lucky, Mt. Fuji!!

Kamakura Tour Reviews

Supreme experience in Kamakura and Enoshima Island

It was fun to check out Kamakura and Enoshima island in a day. Eri san was an excellent guide and came prepared with all the information and history of the sites. It makes the tour so much more memorable. Eri was especially helpful when my phone ran out of battery and helped me took more pictures. Will definitely recommend anyone who wants a guided tour to ask for Eri.

Dilys L.

Thank you so much for such a nice review! I'm very happy that you are happy with those photos I took for you, which are full of your smile and your favorite flowers. I hope you'll go back home with only good memories of Japan. See you again in Kamakura!! Best wishes, Eri

Excellent tour

Eri is an excellent guide, her tour is well organized. We visited many places in Kamakura and she helped us to avoid crowds.

Svetlana  L.

Dear Svetlana, Thank you so much for your review! The tour day was such a cold day we all were in thick coats. But the weather changed for the better and we could enjoy ume, or Japanese apricot and a mimosa in full bloom, which was lucky. While strolling the places I myself had a great time talking with you two. Thank you so much for visiting Kamakura! Best wishes, Eri

Delight in Kamakura

Eri was a delight to be with in Kamakura. She was friendly and energetic. She gave a very nice tour of the city as we wandered through the city on foot. We discovered a new charming cafe. We would highly recommend her. Rajiv

Rajiv G.

Dear Rajiv, Thank you so much for your review! Yes, Kamakura is really a walkable city and it may be the best way to get around the places especially on such a beautiful day as our tour day. From our start at Kamakura station, we walked all our way without taking a bus or train during the tour. We enjoyed three places, Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine, Zeniarai Benten or Money-washing Benten, and our last stop, Great Buddha together with some shopping on the Komachi-dori shopping streetl. The cafe you wrote about was really nice to take s rest, wasn't it? I myself could experience the joy of leisurely walking to my heart's content. It was such pleasure meeting you all in Kamakura! Best wishes, Eri

Bamboo Temple, Sugimoto Temple, and three other attractive spots in Kamakuracover image

Bamboo Temple, Sugimoto Temple, and three other attractive spots in Kamakura

Kamakura
6 hours

Once the samurai capital of Japan, Kamakura is visited by as many as 20 million people a year. Some of the most popular spots among visitors are Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine, Great Buddha, and Hokokuji Temple nicknamed Bamboo Temple. On this tour, along with the three places, I would like to offer two more attractive spots to visit. We first visit three places in the north-eastern area of Kamakura, Bamboo Temple, popular for its bamboo glove with a teahouse serving powdered green tea, Sugimoto Temple, the oldest Buddhist temple in Kamakura dating back to the 8th century, Egara Tenjin, a shinto shrine enshrining deified Sugawara Michizane, the god of learning and scholarship. We take a bus to visit Bamboo Temple, but after that we enjoy strolling around the local residential areas while visiting two other places and the fourth destination, Tsurugaoka Hachiman Srine which was constructed by the first Shogun of the Kamakura Government. After coming back to Kamakura station, we take the Enoden Line to Hase station to visit the last destination, Great Buddha, an open-air Buddha sitting under the sun for some 750 years. This tour covers history of Kamakura from much before the establishment of the samurai government to just after the end of it, and of course, shopping in Komachi-dori street and at Masamune Sword and Blade Workshop by request.

Kamakura

Would you like to become rich in Kamakura? Zeniarai Benten, or Money-washing Benten is a unique place in Kamakura, where you can wash your coins or bills with sacred water of a fountain in a cave. The legend says, if you spend some of the money washed there, it might be doubled! Want to give it a try? Along with Zeniarai Benten, we will visit Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine, which is historically and geographically in the center of Kamakura and one of the most visited shrines in Japan, and Kotokuin Temple, where Great Buddha, a symbol of Kamakura with its original appearence remaining pretty much intact, is waiting for you. And one more spot, Sasuke Inari Shrine with many red torii gates on its approach will take you deep into Kamakura. On our way visiting those places, we will also enjoy dropping by a variety of souvenir shops on Komachi-dori shopping street and strolling around the quiet residential areas of Kamakura. As this tour is entirely on foot, wearing a pair of comfortable walking shoes would be recommended on your visit. Why don't we take a walk and enjoy the serene atmosphere of an ancient capital of Kamakura together!

Kamakura was once the capital of Japan where the first "samurai" government was established in the end of the twelfth century. Today the city draws as many as twenty million visitors a year as one of the must visit places in Japan. On this tour we'll visit three most popular spots, Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine which was constructed by the first shogun Minamoto no Yoritomo, Great Buddha which has been sitting under the sun over the centuries and nicknamed " an open-air Buddha", and Hase Temple, the second oldest temple in Kamakura enshrining the tall wooden statue of eleven-headed Hase Kannon in sparkling gold . After that we'll take the Enoden Line to Inamuragasaki station, which is two stops away from Hase station, to enjoy the great views of Sagami Bay, where you can see Enoshima Island, and if you are lucky, together with Mt.Fuji.

Walking tour along an old Kamakura samurai road

Kamakura
5 hours

Kamakura was the seat of the Bakufu (feudal government) from the 12th century to the 14th century. Many samurai warriors as well as commoners came and went. Kamakura is surrounded by mountains and they would walk across them. Unfortunately, with urbanization, almost all roads are now paved and widened. But you still can walk on the hill side. You can walk an old road between Yokohama (Mutsura) and Kamakura. This road is actually the same as the one used in the 12th century.
