So, please call me Eddy because Eiichi is difficult for visitors to pronounce.
I am a "National government licensed guide interpreter" certified by Japanese government. I offer private tours around Tokyo and I am flexible and open to customizing your tours.
I was born and live in Chiba prefecture, which is next to Tokyo and I have worked in Tokyo for more than 20 years. 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 guide interpreter.
I'm looking forward to meeting visitors who are interested in Japanese beautiful nature, unique culture, variety of foods or history.
A Recent Review of this guide
From the moment we contacted him, Eiichi was most responsive with his suggestions as we toured Tokyo in an unknown environment, language and food. He was extremely responsive to our several requirements on the itinerary, received us at airport, made us comfortable and provided an excellent tour, with insight on the Japanese habits, culture, language etal, without being intrusive. We wouls STRONGLY RECOMMEND Eiichi for anyone visiting Tokyo and nearabouts.
