A Recent Review of this tour

Kaoru offered a tour of Kamakura: Kotokuin Temple, Hasadera Temple, and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine (my spell check keeps 'fixing' the names), and Komachi street shopping. One activity we did was to 'copy' a scroll, and add a prayer for services. Kaoru also built in some time for sightseeing and shopping (beautiful scrolls). This was one of our favorite days in Japan. Kaoru's planning and professional service made it one of our favorites. Excellent guide service!
