Kamakura Tour Reviews

A good tour of Hakone

Kaneo was great and communicated the itinerary with me way before our trip. He answered any questions we might have prior to the trip as well. My family and I got a good tour around Hakone in a 8hr time with explanations of the history. We had one full day in Hakone so it was great that someone was able to take us around and I didn't have to try to navigate this all on my own. Saved us time and headaches of getting lost. Thank you again, Kaneo!

Mary W.

Thank you for warming reply. It was miracle that we could enjoy Hakone tour on a fine day in spite of rainy season of Japan. I am really happy to know you and your family were satisfied with my guide.

Tokyo tours with Kaneo

Our family was so happy to spend 2 days with Kaneo in Tokyo. One day on the east side (Sumida) and second day on the west side (Shinjuku). On the first day, we saw Imperial palace and other temples including Senso-ji temple, samurai museum which we highly recommend to everyone who comes to Japan, Aksakusa, and Akihabara. On our second day with Kaneo in Tokyo, we got to see Gotokuji temple (aka maneki neko or lucky cat temple), Takeshita Street (shopping), and Meiji temple. He is very knowledgeable about the history of all the places we visited. He shared a lot of information that we would not otherwise know. Kaneo also helped us find really good restaurants. He reserved a wonderful vegetarian restaurant called The Farmers to accommodate our daughter who is a vegetarian but we all enjoyed. He helped us get Shinkansen tickets for Kyoto and taught us how to navigate the train system in Tokyo which was very helpful. We highly recommend Kaneo as your tour guide if you would like to learn and see a lot in Tokyo.

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.

Kamakura
7 hours

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!!

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.
