What people are saying about Kanagawa Prefecture

A worthwhile day trip

A worthwhile day trip with a very personable, competent guide, who moved safely through the entire jungle of trains and stations. Apart from the well-known temples and the big Buddha, she led us to a typical Japanese restaurant with excellent food and explained many details to us, but was still talking non-stop. The nice weather made the trip a highlight.

Was good way to spend an day, see the old capital of Japan .

The guide was fluent in English and had excellent knowledge of the city. We travelled by metro and bus. She joined us for lunch, guiding us through the meal.

Interesting history, beautiful temples, cute town - I wish I could have spent more time there ambling among the shops, but that wasn't part of the tour.
