A Recent Review of this tour

What a fantastic tour!! Eriko was so lovely and informative. We were a family of three teenagers and she was very patient and kind and has a great sense of humour. We felt very honoured that she was dressed in traditional kimono. There was something for everyone, Harajuku explorés via shopping, Cat cafes, a beautiful visit to Meji Shrine and a delicious ramen lunch. It was very special day for us all. Thank you Eriko!
