Hi! I'm Eiko Sato .

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

Would you like to experience a genuine tea ceremony but not too formal nor uncomfortable?
Then this tour is highly recommended!!
A host of the teahouse makes your tea right in front of you and it is possible to take pictures and videos while watching it! A host is a licensed tea master, and the teahouse is only 2 minutes away from Tsurugaoka Hachiman shrine, which is convenient to add to your itinerary.
Sharing time, space and conversation over a cup of tea create an amazing bond between the guest and the host. That is what Tea Ceremony is!!

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!
