Very knowledgeable, friendly and a joy to work with!

I count my lucky stars that my paths crossed with Tomoko. If I only had one word to describe working with her - I couldn’t do it. What I enjoyed the most is that she takes the time to listen and ask questions. She personalizes everything to my liking and does not take a “cookie-cutter” approach. Thank you Tomoko! You are the best guide!

Tomoko H.

Thank you for such a great review, David. It’s more than what I did, but I feel so happy that you and your wife enjoyed the time. I just did what I would want to be done for myself as a travel lover like you! The current regulations are complicated and overloading, but I sincerely hope you’ll find the way to get through them and enjoy wonderful time in Japan. - Tomoko

Thank you for your great review, Janice. Glad to hear you enjoyed the walking tour. Yes, we walked a lot visiting lots of beautiful historical spots and experienced seasonal fun and culture.

Walking Tour

We had a large group of people but Tomoko very skillfully managed to keep us all togther as we made our way around to the various sites using the train system. Tomoko was a mountain of knowledge and we all enjoyed our day with Tomoko very much.

Tomoko H.

Hi Paul! Thank you so much for the great review and for all your cooperation and positive views(even running for the museum together) while touring around the busy market and downtowns. I really enjoyed the beautiful day with you all ? Please tell my gratitude to your brother, Mark, about giving me the opportunities to share our culture and history by his asking a lot of spontaneous questions on the way. Best wishes to you, your family, and your friends.

Kamakura is a small, quiet, lovely town, one hour south of Tokyo. It was Japan's political center long time ago. This tour is especially recommended for nature lovers who seek day-escape from busy Tokyo. It covers many hidden spots never attained with a large group tour. You will visit some famous spots like the Great Buddha as well. Kamakura is my hometown when I spent half of my life and I still often visitt to see my family. I'm sure you can enjoy the area just like locals do.
