Samurai Phototours - A Fun Day Out Discovering Kamakura

Hi, I’m Peter. I was born in England, but I’ve lived most of life in Japan. It would give me great pleasure to show you around Kamakura, where I presently live, and share with you my knowledge and love of its fascinating history. Kamakura served as Japan’s de facto capital from 1185 – 1333. It's where the first shogunate was born, giving rise to both Zen Buddhism and the samurai culture. I'll explain the history as we visit different temples and shrines, some of them dating back hundreds of years. In the course of our tour, I'll also talk about everyday aspects of the Japanese way of life, including food, and I could arrange a delicious lunch for you at a restaurant specializing in soba, sushi, or any other type of Japanese cuisine. As a bonus, I’ll take souvenir photos of you – or help you take quality pictures of your own. If you’re planning a trip to Japan, I strongly recommend you include Kamakura in your itinerary. There’s a lot to discover in this beautiful city!
