Session availability depends on Buddhist monk's availability. I'm going to do my best to coordinate session but can't guarantee it when I got your request.
Please let me know your preference first. I'll contact with Buddhist monk and check his availability. This is fully private zazen session.
Eiichi was very friendly and came well prepared for everything I had communicated to him that I wanted to see and do. His English is excellent and I never felt embarrassed to ask him to repeat or to repeat my questions. I HIGHLY recommend Eiichi to anyone, especially those English speakers, that want a private guide and are interested in Japanese culture.
Scott, thank you for your review. I really enjoyed the tour with you since you helped me a lot. The weather was not so cooperative but I hope you could touch a little bit different aspect of Japan.
