About
The staff, with a rich knowledge of the city, will help make a special memory for your trip. We will take you to see interesting things you would not find in guidebooks or on websites. The rickshaw's speed is faster than walking but slower than cycling, which makes it a comfortable, wonderful ride. Enjoy Japanese history, traditions, and the seasonal beauties from a rickshaw with our staff's omotenashi (hospitality).

rickshaw like a pro
Going around Kamakura with Joichiro is one of the highlights of our trip to Japan! We wanted to see the bamboo gardens and we didn’t have much time to get there. Joichiro saved the day! He got us there quickly and we made it before they closed. +Funny, interesting and took great photos. #recomended!

Best Kamakura experience
Dec 2019 • Family
Thank you to Tokuro-san, Joichiro-san, Kaiyo-san, Uta-san and the whole team who made our day in Kamakura so pleasant!! From the minute they greeted us everyone was very friendly and kind. Although we had visited Kamakura previously it was our first time to experience the Kamakura Rickshaw Tour and we highly recommend this tour to new visitors as well as those familiar with the area. We were introduced to small quiet streets and beautiful temples which we would not have discovered by ourselves. Our drivers were also so knowledgeable about the history of Kamakura and the Japanese tradition and it truly made our experience special!!
We would definitely love to come back again.
Note: small children ok! They made sure our child was covered and warm!

I have tried the 1st ride at Asakusa and because of the great experience, I choose to ride with them again in Kamakura and it is the same great service provided. My driver was Joichiro and enjoyed his energy and positivity. To all the tourist coming to Japan, do ride the jinriksa rickshaw it is a great traditional experience

Great experience
Jun 2018 • Family
A couple weeks ago, I had the chance to go to Japan and as part of the tour I was on, we rode in a rickshaw. All of the drivers were really friendly and knowledgeable, and they all spoke some degree of English. They take you around to some scenic sites of interest in Kamakura and help you take pictures. My driver, Ryo (aka Potato) was the best!! He made me and my sister feel super comfortable.

Wonderful experience and wonderful drivers
May 2018 • Friends
A couple weeks ago I had the chance to experience a rickshaw tour. I have travelled in Japan and saw them but never had enough interest to go, but I wish I had done this sooner! the drivers of are extremely friendly and knowledgable about the area. Our driver Satoshi did a great job of keeping us entertained the entire ride. I definitely recommend people try it out to gain a new perspective and appreciation for the history of the area they are visiting in Kamakura!

Fun rickshaw ride!
Dec 2017 • Family
One of the planned activities on our 10 Day Classic Japan Tour with Super Values Tour Company was this rickshaw ride. It was perfect. Not too long or short. It was about 15 minutes long. Our rickshaw driver, Noel, was great. He stopped at various points and took great photos of us along his route. He was knowledgeable, friendly and gave us great service.

If you get a chance to get a rickshaw ride I'd highly suggest it!

an informative and nice way to explore kamakura
Aug 2017 • Family
Me and my friend had a great time during our rickshaw tour through Kamakura. Kenjiro, our guide was a really friendly and nice guy and told us many interesting things about each sightseeing spot, such as "the gate of 2 gods" or the red bridge. I'd highly recommend taking a rickshaw tour at Ebisuya Kamakura

See the side streets via Rickshaw
Apr 2017 • Friends
What a ride! It's worth the trip to see the side streets and slightly out of the way beauty that exists in Kamakura. The guides are very charming and will take photos for you to remember your tour by. It was damp and chilly the day we took the ride, and they had blankets and made sure to keep us comfortable and happy!
