Hi. My name is Eiichi (Kaba) Kabaya and Iive in Yokosuka, Kanagawa for over 50 years. I've just retired last year but started new job at IT venture company. During my previous job, I had assignment in USA for 9 years. My iterests are photograph and walking as you can see in my photo.
I'd love to introduce all of Japan including my home town.
I can take you to all of famous places like Kamakura, Hakone and Tokyo.
But if you have already visited Japan a couple of times, you must contact with me.
I can introduce more specific tour for you based on your interest.
Looking forward to having you touch deeper Japan.

“ Eiichi was a pleasure. ”

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.
