An amazing day!! Spiritually and intellectually fulfilling in more ways than I expected, thanks to the perfect guide - Yutaka Otsuki. Terrific guy, extremely knowledgeable. He took me to more places and spent much more time with me then was required. I, of course, bought him dinner to thank him for going above and beyond....especially after he said he knew the best restaurant in town -- (and I am sure he was right! Wow!! Great food!!). And being the foodie that I am, this was the perfect end to the perfect day. I really lucked out on this tour.

Half-day tour to Kotokuin

We booked this tour to see the Great Buddha. We had a private guide and he was wonderful. Two days before the tour he left a message at our hotel confirming the time of departure. He took care of all the tickets on the trains and that was helpful. The 1/2 day tour of Kotokuin was informative and our guide provide a lot of useful information. I highly recommend this tour.

Private Half -Day Tour of Kamakura from Tokyo including the Great Buddha was beyond expectations !!! Taguchi Tetsuyuki was our excellent guide. He met us at our hotel and guided us through the day with return to our hotel. Yuki as he asked to be called was intelligent, personable and shared a vast und of knowledge about Japan and the history of the sites in Kamakura. It was a most interesting and enjoyable day and tour. I highly recommend this tour !!!

We learned a lot on this tour - our guide met us at our hotel and we took the train to Kamakura - the train was busy so be prepared to potentially stand the entire 45-60 minute ride! Our guide gave us the option of renting electric bikes and we chose that option for a price - it turned out to be a fun way albeit dangerous to see the sites! It was a beautiful day to visit. In the end, we encouraged our guide to take the train back without us so we could explore more on our own. It's a 5 hour tour, but probably 2-3 hours depending on hotel location and train schedules are just gettting there and back. The main reason for 4 stars and not 5 was that we really felt rushed - I would've liked more time to explore on such a beautiful day and our guide had to get back to Tokyo for a meeting. If I go back, I would not get a guide, but we had no idea how to do it on our own. It's really fairly easy and I'd rather go at our own pace.
