Hi! I'm Eiko Sato .

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

Hase temple is one of the oldest temples in Kamakura, which is popular as ‘Flowrer temple’.
Many kinds of flowers are seen throughout a year here.
Its magnificent statue of Hase Kannon which is 9.18 meters tall is one of the largest wooden
Buddhist statues in Japan. There are many other Buddhist statues and halls to see.
The beautiful view of Sagami Bay and the beaches is seen from the observation platform on the
upper level. They also have a restaurant whose menu is ranging from curry to vegetarian dishes
which are prepared in the Buddhist monk meal manner.

I'm a National Government Licenced Guide. I was born in Nagano and have lived in Kamakura/Fujisawa for 30 years. I had lived in Los Angeles for 5 years too!
Kamakura was the ancient capital of Samurai warriors thrived between 12th and 15th century. It has not only many historical temples and shrines but also beautiful nature, especially ocean! Mt. Fuji can be seen from the beach on sunny days! Living in this beautiful historical place just motivated me to become a guide.

I am also enjoying guiding Tokyo which is often said the amazing place where traditional and contemporary coexists! I like Japanese history, culture, nature and food! I'd like to talk these things with people from all over the world!

I like traveling myself too. Japan has four seasons. In each season, we have different ways to enjoy it; view seasonal flowers, colored leaves, festivals, food etc. Let me show you around this beautiful country!!

I have been an English teacher for more than 20 years. I am responsible, hard working and cheerful!
I'm very much looking forward to seeing you soon!
