Description of this tour
Hokokuji temple is known as ‘Bamboo temple’ for its beautiful bamboo garden.
The image of the whole temple is ‘Green and the glimmer of the sun’ .
Once entering this quiet Zen temple, you will be totally refreshed with a feeling of calmness, and it was maybe what ancient samurai warriors had sought 700 years ago.
It is also nice to sit and look at a dry garden and a pond with Koi fish in it.
The back of the dry garden, there are Yagura, caves to house tombs of samurai leaders in the 14th century, which is unique to Kamakura.
Then the tour visit Sugimoto Temple which is Kamakura's oldest buddhist temple. It was originally built in the 7th century. Its mossy staircases are beautiful. Not many tourists visit here and quiet. Lastly the tour will visit Tsurugaoka Hachiman shrine. If you have some more time, please combine my other Kamakura tour that makes your trip really enjoyable one!!
The tour uses bus services.
I'm a National Government Licenced Guide. I was born in Nagano and have lived in Kamakura/Fujisawa for 30 years. I had lived in Los Angeles for 5 years too!
Kamakura was the ancient capital of Samurai warriors thrived between 12th and 15th century. It has not only many historical temples and shrines but also beautiful nature, especially ocean! Mt. Fuji can be seen from the beach on sunny days! Living in this beautiful historical place just motivated me to become a guide.
I am also enjoying guiding Tokyo which is often said the amazing place where traditional and contemporary coexists! I like Japanese history, culture, nature and food! I'd like to talk these things with people from all over the world!
I like traveling myself too. Japan has four seasons. In each season, we have different ways to enjoy it; view seasonal flowers, colored leaves, festivals, food etc. Let me show you around this beautiful country!!
I have been an English teacher for more than 20 years. I am responsible, hard working and cheerful!
I'm very much looking forward to seeing you soon!
