What You Can Expect
Your tour continues to Hasedera Temple, renowned for its ancient wooden statue of a Buddhist figure, one of the largest in Japan. The lovely traditional temple is 1,200 years old and surrounded by hydrangea gardens dotted with statues, with views over the bay. You’ll also visit a Shinto shrine, Tsurugaoka Hachimangu, dating back to 1063, and surrounded by avenues of gateways, monumental stairways, ponds and shrines.
After a short drive by bus to Yokohama, enjoy a delicious Chinese lunch in Yokohama’s Chinatown. Your drive through Asia’s largest Chinatown reveals a mini-city of ornamental gates, Chinese shops and restaurants.
In the afternoon, visit the traditional Japanese-style Sankeien Garden in Yokohama. While walking around the gardens, see a range of historic buildings relocated here from all over Japan, along with ornamental ponds, pagodas, and landscaped gardens of azaleas, maples and ginkgo trees.
Your tour continues with a drive over the Yokohama Bay Bridge across Tokyo Bay, and ends with a choice of drop-off in the commercial districts of Ginza or Shinjuku.
Excellent tour. Picked up on time, comfortable coach, very interesting visits.
The tour was a lot of fun! It had snowed the day before for the second time since 1994, so it was unique seeing everything with a layer of snow. Our tour guide was Satoko-san or "Sunny". She gave us the history behind Kamakura and Yokohama areas. I enjoyed the Giant Buddha and the gardens. I would definitely recommend taking this tour. At the end, Sunny and her assistant were very helpful guiding everyone back to where they needed to be. In fact, even starting at the tour terminal, all the tour employees are very gracious and helpful.
