Hi I'm Eiji, an English tour guide in Amami Ōshima.

Born in Tokyo and left the crazy town when I was 22 years old with my little backpack. Spent about 3 years to see and experience the world, more than 25 countries in total, and lived in a couple of different part of Japan, such as Yakushima, Izu, and Kochi. And finally, drifted to the southern subtropic island, Amami Ōshima in 2015.

I have worked as an English tour guide for an Australian company for 3 years and also worked as a sea kayak tour guide for 3 years, love to show people around my favorite places.

My hobbies are outdoor activities such as canoeing, surfing and camping. Traveling, eating and drinking as well!

I'm looking forward to sharing our time and traveling together on this beautiful island.

Wonderful night tour

Had a great night tour with Eiji. I came to Amami hoping to see the rabbits, and he was able to show me them as well as a number of other interesting and unique animals. The weather honestly wasn’t the best for seeing the rabbits, and of course there’s no guarantee, but Eiji searched really hard for them. His English is very good and he was able to explain about the different animals and plants well.

Amami Experience with Eiji

We were a group of 8 passengers from a cruise ship and Eiji was our guide for 5 hours..He had excellent local knowledge and spoke an excellent English.Eiji provided a very interesting tour of Amami.After pickup from Naze Port we drove to Kinksakubaru forest for a short stroll to admire the local flora.Then a break at Ohama Beach and the Tsumugi Museum to see the process involved in making high-quality silk fabric to make tradional kimonos. We highly recommend Eiji should you visit this part of Japan.
