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!!

“ tour of Tokyo ”

Eiko is very knowledgeable and is a great guide for Tokyo; highly recommended

Eiko:

Thank you for choosing me as your Tokyo guide this time. I’m glad the review. Our tour started from your flight change. We were able to see and talk many things including the wedding procession at Meiji shrine, the live piano concert at Metropolitan government office observatory. But on the other hand the pearl shop was closed, couldn’t see Mt. Fuji.. Hoping you come back to Japan again in the near future. Have a safe flight back home! Eiko

“ A real Tokyo experience in just eight hours ”

Traveling alone for my first business trip to Japan. The wish of understanding the culture of the country, how people live, who they are, basically having a real experience of Tokyo. How do you accomplish all this if you only have one day free? I was extremely lucky to meet Eiko through the Triple Lights website. We started chatting as she wanted to know my objective of hiring a guide. And she was able to tailor on my desires the perfect Tokyo experience. She is absolutely an experienced guide who, thanks to her professionalism, her deep Knowledge of every angle of Tokyo, her adaptability, her friendly attitude made me feel like walking around the city with a friend . We visited historical palaces, temples, crowded streets. We had a taste of amazing local food. We took the metro, w... read more

Eiko:

Hi Christina, Thank you very much for spending your precious time to write a review especially after a long work day. And it is a great great great review and I feel ecstatic!! Thank you!!:-) It was a very hot day but we walked a lot, didn’t we!! The parasol and Tenugui, a cotton cloth worked well. :-) We talked about many things during the tour. I was very happy to see you enjoying the lotus flowers, scenery, food, culture, nature even Japanese history that I introduced you. We shared delicious local food together! And you also taught me many things that you’ve learnt through your business trips in other countries. Thank you!! I was so much comfortable throughout the.tour. Maybe we were just the two girls of us. Anyway, thank you for having me as your Tokyo guide!! I’m looking forward ... read more

“ Fantastic guide! Highly recommended! ”

My husband, 10 year old son and I booked Eiko twice... First, for our 1st day in Tokyo to help us get acquainted with Suica cards, the transit system, and make train reservations. Our son also requested a visit to the Hokusai museum and some fun character-toy shopping. Eiko is very kind and knowledgeable and knew all the perfect spots to go. We booked her a second day later in our trip to guide us around Hakone and her experience with all the different forms of transportation was much appreciated. From first contact, it was easy to communicate with Eiko and make arrangements. Our son asked me to say “She was really good at being a guide!” Agreed!

Eiko:

Hi Allyson, How is your Japan trip going?! I think it is almost ending, but I’m sure you’ve made a lot of nice memories! Thank you very much for sparing time to write a review especially when you were busy. And it is so nice!! Your son Bodhi was an intelligent young artist!! And It was my pleasure to be with all you for two days. I can easily recall your smile faces, which bring me something warm in my heart. Thank you for having me as your Japan guide! I hope you can come back to Japan soon. And I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon!! Take care, Eiko

“ 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

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
