To Travel Agency / Hotel

“Feel nature. Have your heart touched by Japanese culture. Immerse yourself in local Japanese communities!”

As a highly experienced National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter, I am accepting requests to be your guests’ tour guide, mainly for day trips from Tokyo.

I would be happy to guide your guests during their stay in Japan.

While properly taking care to prevent infection in the “new normal” of life during the Covid-19 pandemic, what I treasure most in my life is my relationships with people, and I’m sure that’s true also for my guests. I will show you the heartwarming kindness of life in local Japanese communities. For example, I will show guests how Japanese beautiful artworks are connected with peoples’ lives, and how they point the way to living a satisfying life.

Exploring the treasures of Japanese culture under my direction, guests will have a truly memorable cultural experience — one that they will cherish all their life. By appealing to their intellectual curiosity, I can help transform an ordinary “vacation” into an extraordinary memory.

Because of my years of experience as a guide for people from around the world, you can entrust me (Eiko) to give your guests the special treatment they deserve.
