We enjoyed the day trip very much. Our tour guide Higara was very caring & explained Japanese customs to us patiently. She took us to authentic places to try local foods. It was a very wonderful day & would recommend highly for anyone who is interested in going to Kamakura & Enoshima

On the day of tour, Sandy gave us an overview of the places we will be visiting and even though we told her we may skip some, she seems worried that we may be missing out and reiterated the places of interest till we reassured her that it was fine. Super warm weather but she was cheery throughout and tried to explain as much of the history of every spot. She even brought her own camera to help us take pictures which turned out perfect [plus point for the thought].

Hi Corinne T, Thank you so much for the comment. You had pretty much great time with your otomo tour guide Sandy. We are pleased to hear that you had such a good time with her. As you mentioned that usually, summertime in Japan is extremely hot. I hope you were fine with your health condition on the tour date. Again, thank you so much for choosing us.
