SAMURAI Phototours

Kamakura, Japan
About SAMURAI Phototours
Cultural/historic tours to Kamakura, birthplace of the samurai, in English, with the emphasis on taking professional quality travel photographs of the temples, shrines, and gardens. We visit must-sees Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu, Hasedera, and the Great Buddha, as well as exquisite venues off the beaten track. Informative, fun, and always entertaining, join me on a journey of discovery to a bygone era. I would also be more than happy to take photographs of you and/or your group for you to keep as memories of our day out in Kamakura and your visit to Japan.

Like most tourists, I didn’t know Kamakura had anything much more to offer in terms of tourist sites other than the Great Buddha, the big Shinto shrine in the heart of town, and a couple of shopping streets around the train station. Great was my...More
