Would you like to experience a genuine tea ceremony but not too formal nor uncomfortable?
Then this tour is highly recommended!!
A host of the teahouse makes your tea right in front of you and it is possible to take pictures and videos while watching it! A host is a licensed tea master, and the teahouse is only 2 minutes away from Tsurugaoka Hachiman shrine, which is convenient to add to your itinerary.
Sharing time, space and conversation over a cup of tea create an amazing bond between the guest and the host. That is what Tea Ceremony is!!

I was born in Nagano but have been lived in the Kamakura and Enoshima area called Shonan for 30 years. I had lived in Los Angeles for 5 years too!
Kamakura is an ancient capital of Samurai warriors and there are many temples and shrines. Living in this beautiful historical area just motivated me to be a tour guide. Enoshima is a popular resort island which is easily accessible from Tokyo. Now it is getting attention from the tourists because the gorgeous views of Mt. Fuji can be seen from Enoshima!! And the island is used as a venue for Sailing Competition for 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. I know Shonan very well since I've been a welcome guide for 10 years.

I have been teaching children English for more than 20 years. I am responsible, hard working and cheerful! I like Japanese history, culture, nature and food! I like to talk these things with people from all over!

I like traveling myself too.Japan is a beautiful mountainous country surrounded by ocean. I'd like to show you around this beautiful country. I'm very much looking forward to seeing you soon!
