A Recent Review of this tour

Eriko was a fantastic guide, fun to be around and full of information about the sights and general life in Japan. We spent two days with Eriko on a custom tour that she helped plan for us covering both old and new Tokyo with many highlights and things you would never get to see without insider knowledge. The two days with Eriko were definitely one of the highlights of the trip and I would recommended 100%. Thank you Eriko for making our trip so memorable :)
