Eiichi was a fantastic person to be with. My family and I spent 5 days with him touring Tokyo and the neighboring city of Hakone. He was very patient, caring and informative. He would explain all the sights in great detail and would answer all our questions very patiently. He is a good planner and taught us origami, basic greetings and a lot about the Japanese culture in the times when we were commuting or having meals. He went out of the way to help us, especially with our dietary needs. As an example, he gave us detailed instructions on how to get from the Tokyo train station to our hotel which was very easy to follow. He was very methodical and detailed in the itinerary and cost and was flexible when I wanted to make adjustments a day before. My kids aged 14 and 12 thought he was grea... read more
Dear Keshav and family, Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging review! I was very happy to guide a lovely and ideal family around Tokyo and Hakone. It was such a pleasant experience for me, too. Although it was very hot every day, all of you followed me to see various places with curiosity. Thank you for your cooperation. I was happy to hear that you made many pleasant memories. Please come back to Tokyo someday soon. I am waiting for you. Thank you again and take care! Eddy(Eiichi)
It was an enjoyable experienced and he is very patient with us.
Dear Michelle, Thank you very much for the good review and your cooperation during the tour. I am pleased that you and your family enjoyed the Kamakura tour. It was fun for me to learn about your family and Philippines during the tour. I hope that you will enjoy the rest of your tour in Japan and you will go back to your home safely. Best regards, Eddy
If you are lucky enough to find Eddy available, then please do not hesitate to book him for his tour guide services. Eddy is a very kindly gentleman, with excellent communication skills, and clearly takes pride in giving his clients the best service. Before the tour he answered our questions brilliantly and helped with other non tour related questions we had. During our tour of Tokyo Eddy was keen that we learnt some useful Japanese words, a little of the history of the sights, and entertained us with some Origami during lunch! Excellent tour guide . Thanks again Eddy!
Dear Binit, Thank you very much for the good review. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the Tokyo tour with me, although we had rain. It was my pleasure to communicate with you about various things including Japanese architecture. I felt that you are a perfect couple enjoying life together. I hope that you will make many happy memories during your remaining journey. I am looking forward seeing you again. Best regards, Eddy
Eddy was an excellent guide who went to a lot of detail in his planning and preparation of our tour. He was punctual. He was considerate in giving us several periods to take a break, as there was a lot of walking involved. He gave us much information on the history and local customs, language, foods, and even gave us a lesson in Origami folding. He showed us the best places to view and photograph the Cherry Blossoms. His English was very good. He communicated very well with us from the time of booking to the date of the tour. We would highly recommend Eddy as a tour guide to any other tourists considering Tokyo day tours.
Thank you so much for posting such a great review, Brian. I am very pleased that you enjoyed cherry blossoms in Tokyo. You and your wife and friends were very friendly to me. I appreciate it very much. It was my pleasure to hear about Australia. See you again. Eddy
We took a Hakone tour with Eddy and it was better than excellent. What a lovely and knowledgeable person. The tour was exactly what we wanted to do, he was extremely helpful and even had little things for us to do during lunch and downtimes (language lessons and games, origami). We would never of found our way through all of the experiences without a guide. I highly recommend a tour and you have to book Eddy!
Dear Kelly, Thank you very much for your excellent review. All your family members are so kind and helpful that it was fun for me to be with you. I am glad that you were interested in Kanji and Origami which I introduced. You are lucky to have beautiful days and to see cherry blossoms in various places in Japan. I hope that you will enjoy the rest of your tour and make more happy memories. Finally, I would like to tell you some tips to enjoy efficiently in Tokyo Disney which is your last destination: Make reservation of restaurants, Use the FASTPASS for attractions, and Souvenir shops are crowded after 15:00. Looking forward to seeing you again. Best regards, Eddy
Eddy was such a friendly, pleasant person. We had a great tour based on everything he suggested for us. His English is excellent, he included a lot of interesting history of Japan, he used his iPad to show us pictures from the past. We had a very fun Sushi lesson, the fish market was great, he picked some spots for us to try delicacy dishes. He was sweet and at end of tour helped me to get reserved seats at the train station for the travel for rest of my trip, telling me which side of train to sit on to see Mt Fuji. He was WONDERFULLY and I highly recommend him.
Dear Anna, Thank you very much for such a great review. I really appreciate you! I was really impressed by Anna's elegance and planning and Tony's humor and dignified presence. You are a perfect couple. I am pleased that you enjoyed Sushi making experience, the fish market, and so on. You are very lucky to have beautiful days and to see cherry blossoms in Asakusa and other places in Tokyo. I hope that you will enjoy the rest of your tour and make many happy memories. Looking forward to seeing you again. Best regards, 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!
Dear Marcy, Thank you for a kind review. It was my great pleasure guiding a nice couple around Tokyo and hearing about your hobbies and experiences in a previous tour. I am also glad that you liked my mini lesson on Japanese culture. I hope that you will come to Japan again soon. Best regards, Eddy
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.
Thank you for your message. I am glad that I could guide a nice couple and that you enjoyed the walking tour around Tokyo. It was fine on the day, so we walked around many places. You might be tired a little. It was interesting for me that you talked about your family and successful business. I hope that you will enjoy your travel to US and will go back to your country safely. See you again. Eddy
