Eiichi was very friendly and came well prepared for everything I had communicated to him that I wanted to see and do. His English is excellent and I never felt embarrassed to ask him to repeat or to repeat my questions. I HIGHLY recommend Eiichi to anyone, especially those English speakers, that want a private guide and are interested in Japanese culture.
Scott, thank you for your review. I really enjoyed the tour with you since you helped me a lot. The weather was not so cooperative but I hope you could touch a little bit different aspect of Japan.
