Hi! I'm Eiko. I'm a National Government Licensed English Guide.
I've lived in Kamakura for 30 years. I had lived in the US for 5 years too! I am also an English teacher with 20+ years of experience.
Tokyo is an exciting city with traditional and contemporary coexists. Let me help you enjoy its amazing things and places, culture, nature, food and so on!! I'm sure you will never be bored. But are you worried about Tokyo's complecated Trains and subways? No worries!! With the professional guide, you can travel around Tokyo by public transportation just like Tokyoite do!! And it is a part of the travel of Tokyo. :-)
I also guide Kamakura, Yokohama and Hakone.
Kamakura is one of Japan’s 3 ancient capitals along with Kyoto and Nara. But it was developed in the 13th century by Samurai warriors not by the court nobles . Living in this historical place just motivated me to become a guide. Please visit this beautiful and peaceful place. You can see beautiful Mt. Fuji above the sea when sunny. I’m sure you’ll love it!!
Japan has four seasons and the rainy season between spring and summer.
I can show you the best tourist spots depending on the time of the year.
Beautiful flowers, colored leaves, moss, and indeed of gorgeous Mt. Fuji!!
Tokyo will host 2020 Summer Olympic Games.
And Enoshima will be the venue for the Sailing Competitions. And I have been a welcome guide of Ehoshima Island for 10 years!
I like Japanese history, culture, nature, animals, food and anime.
I'm cheerful and funny but responsible and a hard worker!
I make an extra effort and do my best to make your trip a great one.
I hope to see you soon in Japan!! Arigatogozaimasu! :-)

We had a lovely time with Eiko, her English is very good and local knowledge was excellent. We wouldn't have been able to navigate our way around without her. Thanks Eiko you are a lovely person.

Hi Terry, Thank you very much for such a nice review!! We changed the itinerary and went to Ueno Park to see cherry blossoms. I hope you enjoyed it!! Japanese fall is also beautiful. Maybe next time!! :-) Eiko
Eiko was delightful, knowledgable and fun! She also spoke excellent English. Highly recommended
Hi Steaven and Laura!! Thank you very much for a too nice review!! Throughout the tour, I felt very comfortable to be with you may be because you were broad-minded persons. And not only the size of your heart, you were tall too! The tempra restaurant table was too small for us all, wasn't it. :-) We needed to walk for a long time at Meiji shrine. Thank you very much for your patience. The cherry blossoms at Ueno park were so beautiful! And that was the place we knew the new Japanese era name 'Reiwa'!! Thank you for sharing this important moment with us, Japanese people! I'm wishing your daughter will be qualified for 2020 Tokyo summer!! Arigatou gozaimashita!
What a wonderful day we had with Eiko. She showed us all we wanted to see and much more in our 6 hour tour. Her English and her knowledge was fantastic. Would highly recommend Eiko for your guide.
Hi Lee and Naree, thank you very much for having me as your Tokyo guide this time. And your review brought me a big smile!! Im glad you enjoyed the tour. But let me tell you that I enjoyed the jokes Lee told time to time during our tour. ;-) I’m hoping you’ll have a great time in the rest of your Japan trip!! Please come back to Japan again soon!! Eiko
We’ve just spent 2 wonderful days with Eiko (pronounced “A-co”). Eiko is super friendly, outgoing and fun, and also patient and flexible. We are a family of 4 with 2 daughters aged 9 and 10. We spent 1 day on the east side of Tokyo and 1 day on the west side. Eiko met us at our hotel each morning and navigated us through the city with ease - allowing my husband and I to relax and have fun, rather than stressing over the subway lines, station exits and where to cross the streets. Eiko was very sweet with our daughters, encouraging our oldest while she tried to find a used kimono to purchase and chasing after our youngest as she fearlessly forged ahead of our group in the busiest stations. Along the way, Eiko shared interested historical tidbits and also details about daily, regular life in ... read more
