Hello. My name is Eiichi and my nick name is Eddy. So, please call me Eddy because Eiichi is difficult for visitors to pronounce.
I am a licensed guide interpreter certified by Japanese government.

I was born and live in Chiba prefecture, which is next to Tokyo and I have worked in Tokyo for more than 20 years. So, I know Chiba and Tokyo very well. My hobby is ceramic art, golf, and Zen meditation, and I like traveling and reading history books. Based on these experience and knowledge, I will introduce Japanese culture and history.

I used to work as an engineer for one of major electronic manufacturers which exports communication systems and components to overseas. Through the job, I visited many countries including New Zealand where I fortunately stayed for four years with my family. I have found it fun to communicate with people in other countries. So, after my recent retirement, I started to work as a licensed guide interpreter.

I’m looking forward to meeting visitors who are interested in Japanese beautiful nature, unique culture, variety of foods or history.

Very Good

“ Our Day with Eddy ”

Eddy is a polite gentleman and a thorough and thoughtful guide. More restrained than dynamic, he planned our one day visit with care, adapting to our interests. He gave us a great mini lesson on Japanese language and characters, an overview of Japanese food and even taught us some origami. Arigato Eddy!

“ It was the best experience with such a short time around tokyo. Love it ”

I have been taking quite a few tours but i’m sure that Eddy was the hard working tour guide i ever knew. He tried his best to let us know about Tokyo, from history to religion, which is very interesting to know. Thank you for guiding us around Tokyo. It’s such a pleasure to meet him.
