“ Culture and human experience in Tokyo ”

As a woman single traveler, in Japan for the first time, I was looking for more than a local guide to visit places of interest. I wanted to make this an enriching human experience. Eiko was the right person. She is open-minded, kind and generous. She is also very knowledgeable. She tailor-made the day including the Hokusaï temporary exhibition as per my request. We shared a very enjoyable day, able to connect at many levels. She made it a unique experience. It went exactly as I was hoping for. Thank you Eiko-san. お疲つかれ様さました.

“ Excellent immersion in such short time! ”

Eiko-san is awesome. We learned so much about Japan, Japanese culture, customs and the people in our two days with her. This will sound like a cliche after reading her other reviews, but at the end of the second day it was truly like being shown around by a family member. She’s thoughtful about your objectives, needs and requirements as a touring party. We highly recommend her. Eiko-san, arigatogozaimashita!

Eiko:

Hi Mayank and his lovely family! :-) Thank you for taking your preciouce time to post the review which is so great!! Those two days with all of you in Tokyo and Kamakura+Enoshima were gift to me. The weather was so nice that we could see beautiful Mt. Fuji above the see from Enoshima! We experienced many things together, such as scooping goldfish, eating veg. ramen and green tea ice cream, fishmarket, front car of the Enoden Line, Tea Ceremony etc!! Of course the tour was so much fun with your pretty girls, but at the same time, your attentive attitude toward learning other culture moved me a lot and rased me as a guide at the same time. Let me tell you my appreciation!! I hope you'll have another chance to visit Japan again soon. So see you then, hopefully!! :-) Arigatogozaimashita! ... read more

“ A fantastic day out with Eiko ”

Through my emails with Eiko, i thought of her as a warm and thoughtful person. True enough, when we met her this morning , she was friendly and warm. She was professional and thoughtful and was able to tell us about the history of Kamakura and answer the questions that we had. Our journeys on the trains and buses were not boring maybe because we are all women and we had lots to talk about. We enjoyed the sights that Eiko brought us to see and the shopping street that we walked through to try some of the sweets and delicacies. We highly recommend Eiko if you are looking for a guide cos i will certainly look for her again when i come to japan !

Eiko:

Hi Phing! Thank you very much for such a nice review! It was so much fun to be your Kamakura guide this time. We talked a lot of subjects from Japanese history, religion including the Shinto rituals of 7-5-3 and Yabusame to the cost of the Japanese style wedding ceremony. :-) We also visited the tea master’s house, enjoying seeing all the process of the tea ceremony. Thank you for showing your interests each time! I hope you have a safe flight back home. I definitely would like to see you and your mom again in the near future!! Until then, Take care!! Eiko

“ Excellent service by Eiko. ”

Eiko has the personality of a good tourguide. She is amiable, patient and works hard to please her clients. She’s prompt in her replies and always thinking what would benefit her clients the most. We had a wonderful experience of Tokyo and Hakone with all the help provided by Eiko considering that my husband has a health issue. We thank TripleLights specially Eiko for the excellent service.

Eiko:

Hi Luna!! Thank you very much for such a wonderful review!! You and your family were all very nice and it was my pleasure to have been with you for two days in Tokyo and Hakone!! Thank you for treating me as a part of your family all the time. We had exchanged a lot of messages about our tour to Hakone before your actual visit to Japan. Although Mt. Fuji was a little too shy that day, I was so happy when we arrived safely at Tokyo station by Shinkansen, bullet train which was your husband’s number 1 wish about the Hakone tour. :-) I’m looking forward to your next trip to Japan!! Take care!! Eiko
