Hi! I'm Eiko. I'm a National Government Licensed English Guide(Cert. No. EN02408)
I was born in Nagano but I have lived in the Kamakura and Enoshima area called Shonan for nearly 30 years. I had lived in Los Angeles for 5 years too.
Kamakura is one of the three ancient capitals of Japan along with Kyoto and Nara. The difference between Kamakura and the other two capitals is that Kamakura was the ancient capital of Samurai warriors and not the court nobles. Living in this historical place simply motivated me to become a guide. I am familiar with Japanese history, culture and nature. Japan has four clear-cut seasons plus the rainy season between spring and summer. I can show you the best parts of Japan depending on the time of the year. I know many picturesque spots of historical temples and shrines with beautiful flowers, colored leaves and moss, and indeed of gorgeous Mt. Fuji like the one in Japanese Ukiyoe woodblock prints.
Tokyo will host 2020 Summer Olympic Games. And Enoshima will be the venue for the Sailing Competitions that time. I have been a welcome guide of Ehoshima island for 10 years.
My families live in Tokyo and I know well about Tokyo too!! Tokyo is a really exciting city with lots of interesting things and places. I would like to share the excitment of the city with the guest!!
I have been teaching young children and adults English for more than 20 years.
I am responsible and cheerful. I make extra efforts to provide memorable experiences of Japan for my guests. I am looking forward to seeing you in Japan soon!! I will do my best to make your trip a good one!
