Walking tour along Takatori-yama mountain

Kanagawa
5 hours

Eiichi was a pleasure.

Eiichi was very friendly and came well prepared for everything I had communicated to him that I wanted to see and do. His English is excellent and I never felt embarrassed to ask him to repeat or to repeat my questions. I HIGHLY recommend Eiichi to anyone, especially those English speakers, that want a private guide and are interested in Japanese culture.

Scott W.

Scott, thank you for your review. I really enjoyed the tour with you since you helped me a lot. The weather was not so cooperative but I hope you could touch a little bit different aspect of Japan.

Easy day trip from Tokyo and Yokohama area. If love hiking, it is must-try tour. The name "Takatori-yama" means "Hawk caught mountain" and dates to the Edo period (17th to 19th centuries). Everybody from kids to adults can enjoy fresh air and breath-taking views. The elevation is not so high--about about 330 feet (100 meters) above sea level. Walking in the forest can relaxing. On a clear day, you can see Mt.Fuji and downtown Tokyo and Yokohama.

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.
