Hi! I'm Eiko Sato .

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

Customers can experience Japanese calligraphy at a master, Sensei's own house in Kamakura.
The master, Sensei instructs you how to use the ink brush, and how to write your name in Japanese Kanji. For children, she will prepare other words in Hiragana if needed. I'm sure you will forget the time while concentrating on it. The ink smelles good, inviting you into the totally different world!! In the end, you pick some of the best works from all to take home as one of the suvenires by which you will recall the whole trip to Japan!

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!
