Discover Kamakura with a knowledgeable local guide


Welcome to Kamakura! During this amazing full-day private walking tour, you will see the most popular sights of Kamakura and experience the best parts of the city with a government licensed local tour guide.

Kamakura located 50Km southwest of Tokyo and enjoyed a period as the Shogun's capital from late 12th century to mid 14th century. It is home to many famous temples and historical sites, and remains very popular with visitors from both inside and outside Japan. Only about an hour's train ride from Tokyo station, it is perfect for a day's outing.

I've lived in near Kamakura and spent for most of my youth days, I know most of the corners and the details of this beautiful City.

I will show you the special things that make Kamakura great.

Itinerary

Meet at your hotel or wherever you are in downtown-Tokyo.

Kotokuin Temple (Great Buddha): Since the hall was swept away by a tidal wave in the 15th century, the "Open-air Buddha" has been watching over us without an umbrella, regardless of the weather.

Hase Temple: The compound of Hase temple is called the Paradise of the Pure Land of Kamakura. This place commands a superb view. You have an unbroken view of Yuigahama and Zaimokuza beaches.

Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine: The extensive grounds contain many buildings but also plenty of natural greenery. A popular choice for the first prayer of the year, the shrine welcomes more than 2. 3 million visitors in the first three days of the New Year.

Kokachi Street: Lined on both sides with stalls, restaurants and souvenir shops, it's a spectacle in itself-busy, cheerful and bustling on weekends with visitors who come to join the action.

Wakamiya Oji Street: The main approach to the famous shrine Hachimangu.

Return to the place of your choice in downtown-Tokyo.
