Overview

This tour offers you the beautiful and peaceful tourist spots from the western part of Kamakura to Enoshima Island. Needless to mention about the historical temples and shrines such as the Great Buddha and Gokurakuji Temple, you can see the work place of 'Masamune' swordsmith too!! The great view of Mt. Fuji above the ocean, the Enoden Line, food will add more richness to your trip.

What to Expect

Do you want an experienced guide of Kamakura and Enoshima?! I have been a guide for 10 years now!!
This tour offers you Kamakura's must see temples and shrine. What this tour is different from the others is that the guide takes you to the tea master's house where you can see the real Tea Ceremony right in front of you! You are allowed to take pictures and shoot videos. It is a genuin cultural experience, and all of my guests have loved it!! We also stop at the work place of 'Masamune' swordsmith if time available. These are the hidden places where not many tourists know. Then you enjoy the local train nicknamed 'Enoden' which is often used in the movies and Japanese TV dramas! The final destination of the tour is Enoshima Island. The view of Mt. Fuji from Enoshima in the sunset hour is so beautiful.(*when the weather permits) You can enjoy the beautiful nature of Japan too!! Please join this tour with a guide, which is me, who have lived in the Kamakura and Enoshima area for more than 30 years!!

“ Friendly, easy-going & knowledgeable ”

We really enjoyed our day with Eiko. She helped give us a great intro to Tokyo, and by the end of the day felt like a family friend. Speaks excellent English due to several years living in the US. We highly recommend her to you as a guide.

Eiko:

Hi Peter, Thank you very much for this wonderful review. You were such an intelligent family that you always showed your interests while listening to my guiding even in the rain. And again, let me apologize that Kabukiza was over crowded, didn’t allow us to see a single act. That was one of the things on your wish list. I hope you could enjoy Kabukiza gallery instead. I can’t say thank you enough for your understanding and generosity. And I felt exactly the same way about your family at the end of our tour!! I hope to see all of you again soon in the near future!! Have a great rest of your Japan trip! And Take care, Arigato gozaimashita !! Eiko

“ Wonderful Tour Guide for Tokyo ”

Eiko is a wonderful tour guide for Tokyo! Extended the tour couple hours longer to visit more location and she was very accommodating! She is excellent and highly recommended!

Eiko:

Thank you so much for a great review with 5 stars!! It was also a fun tour to me too especially because I could see Trenton and Alicia's big smaile faces when they found their favorite things about Japan; anime related goods such as Naruto T-shrit, Hello Kitty goods, a samurai sword like umbrella, etc. :-) :-) I was also vrey happy because you liked the soba noodle place that I picked for your lunch! And more and more!! I definitly believe you will come back to Japan soon! Take care, all of you!! Eiko

“ We had a wonderful day with Eiko!! ”

Our tour was great and we really enjoyed meeting Eiko and having her take us around Tokyo. All of her suggestions were perfect for our small group of first time visitors to Tokyo. We went to Tsukiji fish market and had delicious sushi. We went to Ginza, Asakusa, the Imperial Palace garden, Meiji Temple, Harajuku and Shibuya. We had a wonderful lunch and coffee break as well. The day was very enjoyable with lots of walking and great information shared along the way. The weather the day of our tour was not great (drizzle and rain most of the day), but we still enjoyed everything we saw and did. Eiko did a great job keeping everyone interested even though we had different ages (26 and 15 year old with mom). I would highly recommend a tour with Eiko!!

Eiko:

Hi Debbi, thank you for such a wonderful review!! I’m so much happy to hear you enjoyed the tour especially because Tokyo was your final destination of your Japan trip and you’ve seen and visited many beautiful places. I myself enjoyed the girls only tour very much!! It was rather a long tour and we walked a lot and talked about many subjects. I felt very comfortable throughout our tour. I’m hoping to see you again soon!! Have a safe and comfortable flight back home, Debbi!! Take care, Eiko

“ Great guide! ”

Very flexible, easygoing and knowledgeable. From start to end was able to give us a very good glimpse of Tokyo. We are a family of 4 with two young preteens. She was able to make the day enjoyable for the four of us and keep everyone engaged. Highly recommend her!

Eiko:

Hi Leo and his lovely family!! Thank you very much for the fantastic review!! I hope you are enjoying Kyoto right now. :-) I was very worried about our tour because of a typhoon it occurred a night before. But the weather improved so quickly and it became rather a nice day. Thank you for bringing the nice weather!! I definitely believe that you’re a blessed family. We talked a lot and found there were a lot in common. Thank you for sharing things with me! Please enjoy the rest of your Japan trip. And I hope to see you again in the near future! Until then, take care. Eiko

Please book Eiko as a guide. She is warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. She comes prepared with a full itinerary and hits all the things you want to do. We highly recommend Eiko, would book her again for our next trip and will miss her. Thank you Eiko!!

Hi Nick, Thank you very much for such a nice review!! :-) It was just yesterday and I feel like joining your Ghbli tour today. :-) I was very happy to know you could enjoy the tour. Honestly, I, myself enjoyed the tour with you and your wonderful children!! Also, thanks to the nice weather with the beautiful blue sky, every place we visited looked more beautiful and every thing we did together brought bigger smile!
