A Recent Review of this tour

Eriko was a superb guide. She was very knowledgeable, pleasant and interesting company. She was also elegant and charming with a sense of humour. Eriko explained the history and traditions of Japan and the places she took us to. We only wish we had booked her for our entire stay. We recommend her 110%. Thank you Eriko.
