About

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!

“ Perfect Day one Tokyo ”

As a traveler who has seen 36 countries with my daughter I have to day Eiko is one of the best! Eiko understood the type of travelers we were and allowed us to feel at home in Tokyo. Eiko was full of useful information and she was so kind and patient with us. We loved all of her recommendations. By the end of the tour leaving Eiko was like parting with an old friend. Great Day! Thank you Eiko for showing us as much of Japan as possible!

Eiko:

Hi April and Abby! I think you are on the plane for Thailand now. I'm hoping you are having a comfortable flight. Thank you so much for such a wonderful review especially when you had little time!! I'm very happy to know that you enjoyed the places and things on the itinerary I made for you! It was so hot and humid but you and Abby never complained and walked with me. You were so nice to me too!! We had a lot of fun, and I'm guessing Abby's favorite was the animal cafe! Again, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your memories of Tokyo this time. And I really hope to see you again soon!! Eiko

“ Four wonderful days with Eiko ”

Our family (me, my wife, and our 19 year old daughter) spent a delightful four days with Eiko touring Tokyo during our recent trip to Japan. Eiko designed a great, customized itinerary which incorporated both our suggestions for sites we wanted to visit and specific locations of interest to our daughter, who is an artist. Eiko has a wonderful sense of humor, was very helpful, and we enjoyed our time with her immensely.

Eiko:

Dear Ed, Trish and Lily, It's so nice to hear from you!! I hope everybody is fine! Thank you very much for such a wonderful review with five stars!! I'm so happy about it! We walked a lot, didn't we?! And we talke and laught a lot too!! The memory of those four days with you and your family will stay in me as a forever treasure. Thanks for having me as your Tokyo guide!! I really hope to see you again in the future. Until then. Take care!!
