Enjoy major spots, a bamboo garden and a dry landscape garden on powdered green tea


Kamakura located 30 miles southwest of Tokyo was a base of the first Samurai class government called Shogunate for about 140 years from the end of the 12th century.

Kamakura is especially characterized by a large number of Zen temples, and attracts about 20 million visitors a year both from home and abroad as one of the most popular tourist spots in Japan.

In addition to spots you would visit on an ordinary tour, I will give you a chance to enjoy walking through an elegant bamboo garden and to feel a peaceful atmosphere by appreciating a dry landscape garden on powdered green tea.

As your private tour guide, I will try to adjust the schedule, duration and activities to meet your needs. Please let me know of any special requests.

It couldn't have been better! My husband has back problems and he was very helpful finding places for him to rest. HIdeaki was very professional and very instructive and very friendly. He took us to a great lunch place too! Really enjoyed our day with HIdeaki!
