I've been in Kamakura for more than 15 years and I have found a lot of wonderful place in Kamakura through my childhood. In a while local school at Kamakura, I have studied interesting history of Kamakura and developed English language skill to guide you.
During vacation, I have traveled around Japan, Korea and Russia and took a sightseeing, experienced local cultures, stayed in B&B.
Now I'm studying politics at university in Tokyo and I still love Kamakura as my hometown in my heart.
That's the reason why I began this tour.

Ryotarosan was very thoughtful and considerate. Even before the trip, he gave us great directions to Kamakura and took the time to personalize the tour taking into consideration my health issues. It was supposed to be a walking tour but instead he even bought train tickets for us so that I did not have to walk very far. He also made sure that he brought only snacks to which we were not allergic to. He thought of every little detail. That shows how much he truly cared. Furthermore, he was willing to re-arrange his busy schedule to accommodate us. During the tour, you really get a sense that Ryotarosan loves his city and wants to share it with the world. The time flew by so fast and we wish we had more time. Thank you Ryotarosan. We hope to see you again, hopefully on our next visit to Japan.
