What you'll do

Kamakura is a traditional town built by Samurai 800 years ago. Let's explore the beautiful town with a friendly guide. Though Kamakura is a popular destination, you can get off the beaten path and visit peaceful sites on this tour. We walk through a local neighborhood and go to temples and shrines worshiped by Japanese. You can take beautiful pictures at each site and on the way. In a Zen Buddhist temple, you will see magnificent buildings, statues, and Japanese gardens. You will feel the meditation mind there. The next is a Shinto Shrine believed as a deity of wealth. They say the magical water increases your money to double or triple. Let's try it as same as locals. The third site is a Shrine with many red gates and fox dolls. It's a beautiful red tunnel way best for taking impressive pictures. You can walk through them. People believe this Shrine brings success to one's life. You will learn the traditional beauty, religious background, and people's customs deeper with this tour. Don’t worry! It’s not only educational but also very fun. I was born and grown-up in Japan. While we are walking, we can talk about many things. About Japan, culture, family, sports, food, society, and anything! You will understand not only traditional but also modern Japan and people. It will make your travel much more interesting. Let's enjoy walking and talking with me!
