Eiko and I spent one wonderful day in Kamakura, visiting temples and a shrine, eating local food and taking part in a tea ceremony. It was such a great experience, my only regret is not having had more time. If you are looking for an experienced and knowledgeable guide who speaks English perfectly, I recommend booking Eiko.
Hi Melanie, Thank you very much for your precious time to write a review! And I am glad to know you enjoyd the Kamakura tour. It was more like a trip with my long time friend because of your thoughtful attitude. We talked many things. You always listened to my explanation with interests but also shared many things including the Hindu Buddhism. And yes, if we had had more time, we could have visited at least one or two more temples. But let's save it for later! Please keep studying Japanese and come back to Kamakura with your husband! I'm looking forward to seeing you again in the near future!! Wishing you continue your pleasant journey in Japan !! Eiko
Very cheerful personality. Delightful conversations about history, politics, cuisine, religion...The traditional tea ceremony and conversation with the samurai sword-maker enabled us to make wonderful personal connections while learning about time-honored traditions. Also, as a long-term resident of Kamakura, she knows the people, the shops, the restaurants and the right places for photos. Finally, her English was impeccable. We would strongly recommend Eiko to lead you through the sites at Kamakura!
Hi Edward and Tonia! I've just got your review from TripleLights. Thank you so much!! I now know that you flew back to the US safely which is good but at the same time I'm missing you two knowing that you are not in Japan any more. It was a very pleasant tour from the beginning we said 'Hi!' in front of JR Kamakura station to the endding we said 'Good-bye'. Thank you very much for taking the early train! Every thing went so smoothly! Through your questions to the sward smith and the tea master, I was able to learnt many new things with you too. Each of your comment encouradged me a lot. Again, thank you so much for having me as your Kamakura guide! Please come back to Japan again soon!! Take care! Eiko
We had a great couple of days with Eiko. She's well organised, fun, speaks great English and was fantastic with the kids. She even brought a little pack of things to keep them occupied when needed. She pulled together a great itinerary and took us to places that the whole family could enjoy. Highly recommend Eiko - thank you Eiko!
Thank you for having me as your Tokyo and Kamakura guide this time. I was very much pleased to know you could enjoy the tours. And thank you very much for sparing your precious time to write a review, which is wonderful!! How's everybody? I can still picture your lovely children talking to me. :-) We've visited many places and seen many things. We ate delicious food and talked a lot too! I hope these good memories of Japan will be something pleasant to look back on. And Rugby World Cup! Let's keep our fingers crossed!! Thank you again and I'm looking forward to seeing you in the near future! Take care, Eiko
She was personable, kind and very knowledgeable about Tokyo and the sites we visited. She was also very flexible and accommodating. I will recommend her without any hesitation and I will hire her again when I come back to Tokyo
Hi Cynthia, Thank you very much for taking your precious time to write this review! I was really happy to know that you enjoyed the tour yesterday. Thank you for treating me as your friend from the beginning of the tour. I had lived in LA before and I felt very close to you too! It was an 8-hour tour and we walked a lot. After a long walk, Ramen tasted really good, didn't it!! And Shibuya scramble crossing was so excited with full of people in the evening of Saturday. It was the busiest crossing that I've ever seen with my guests! Just one thing, let me appologize that I couldn't complete all the spots I prepared for you yesterday. We enjoyed and stayed a little bit too long at each spot. But I believe that it was the proof that you've enjoyed and had a good time at each spot!! Once a... read more
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time in Hakone thanks to having Eiko-san as our guide. Since the popular Owakudani Valley and ropeway were off limits to tourists during our stay, Eiko emailed us ahead of time to plan an alternate itinerary that would still allow us to experience all of the great things Hakone had to offer. It was a very tight schedule, but she remained flexible throughout the day and always checked with us before making decisions about what to do next, which we appreciated very much. We even asked her if we could include a specific restaurant in our itinerary; not only did she accommodate our request, but she even called the restaurant and made a reservation for us ahead of time. Eiko also knew that we wanted to catch a glimpse of Mt. Fuji, so even though we weren’t ab... read more
Hi Sovan! How are you and your girlfriend?! Thank you so much for such a WONDERFUL review!! It brought me a BIG smile. :-) I think I've told you but let me tell you again that you made me very happy on the day of the tour, saying you liked Hakone better than Kyoto. That was a great great compliment !! It was actually a very nice and enjoyable tour to me too because of you. I appreciated you because you always listened to my explanation very well with interests. And your smile faces you showed me at each spot encouraged me a lot. And the weather; It was not nice with little rain at the beginning but the sky became more blue as time went by. And finally we could see Mt. Fuji! The view of Mt. Fuji from the park building was just like a picture in a frame! I believed you brought that mirac... read more
