One Day Private Tours in Kamakura

Whether you are a local or coming to one of Japan’s most picturesque historical towns for an overnight trip, doing a private guided tour in Kamakura is always great fun and very educational. Supplying great guides is one of our fortes, so we recommend spending a day with one of our guides to those who book a hotel stay through us, but of course, booking a private tour is also an option for locals. Tours are always flexible, and itineraries can be adjusted at your request in consultation with the guide.

We offer two different day tours in Kamakura; a 6-hour highlight walking tour, and a 5-hour bicycle tour. Traveling during these special times also means that the best guides are available and you will get the full, unhurried experience. Please note that the discount price is only valid for those who also book a hotel stay with us.
