What to Expect

If you stay in Tokyo, not far from it, there is an ancient capital of Japan, "KAMAKURA" ,which prospered from the end of the 12th century and lasted

150 years. During this period, Buddhism flourished and many temples were

built in KAMAKURA. We'll visit Great Buddha, Hase Kannnon in golden color and Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine which was the gurardian diety of

the 1st Shogun's Family and his men. If time allows and you'll still have the

energy to walk, visit one more place, Kenchou-ji Temple or Engaku-ji Temple,

both are headquarters of Zen sects having architectual beauty.

Tokyo and Nikko

I contacted Reiko for 2 tours in Tokyo and Nikko for a small group of travellers. The services provided were excellent and Reiko is a very knowledgeable and friendly person.She was very caring with the group. I recomend her if you want to learn more about Japan, especially Tokyo and Nikko. Thank you!

Hi Sorina Thank you for a nice review! I'm glad to know you enjoyed the tour very much. How were Takayama, Kyoto and other places? I hope you've had a good memory of Japan. It was my first time to have guests from Romania. You are very cheerful and gentle. I'm expecting more Romanians to come to Japan. Take care! Reiko

Learned and tried many interesting things

I spent with Reiko the whole day. Was very satisfied by her insights and willingness to answer questions not only about the city but about daily life as well.

It was like we were traveling with a knowledgeable family member

We had an incredibly positive experience touring with Reiko. She absolutely showed us everything we could fit in for the two days we spent with her. She was patient with us, our four-year-old daughter who only wanted to hold her hand, and with our many, many questions. She went above and beyond to ensure that not only the two days we spent with her were great but helped us navigate Tokyo and make recommendations for the other days of our trip! Traveling with Reiko felt more like we were traveling with family that was local to Tokyo instead of a brief guide! She helped us create memories we will never forget and really hope we get to see her again some day!

Hi Lesley Thank you very much for giving me an excellent review. And sorry for being late to reply you. I had work and came home late. I'm very glad to hear you've enjoyed my tour very much. I don't have a grandchild of my own yet, so it was a lot of fun holding hands with a little child. I want to see Evelyn when she grows up.I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Pray for the health of everyone in your family. Reiko
