He is thoughtful person to be with. Thanks a lot.

Munetaka H.

Dear Steve: I am very pleased to know both of you were satisfied to my guiding. I think you returned home safely with my several pictures. I believe you could touch a part of the Japanese tranditional culture with Imperial Palace of that special day as well as my hand-made NOH mask effectively. And I think you could enjoy an relax time in the most fashonable & energetic atomosphere at Omote Sando & Shinjuku. I think you are very nice , if you have a chance to come to Japan again, I wish to be your guide again. Wish your healthy life and success continously. Sincerely yours . Munetaka

Kamakura is a very popular tourist destination and has a lot of beautiful places such as Buddhist temples with gardens, and Shinto shrines. The city has a lot of Japanese restaurants which offer lovely dishes. We’ll visit some of the most popular spots in Kamakura, such as Hokoku-ji temple (with a bamboo garden), Hase-dera temple (one of the oldest temples in Kamakura), and Kotoku-in temple which is well known for the Great Buddha. I hope you have a lovely day in Kamakura!
