3 person group in our 60s. We had a great time with Eriko. She is relaxed, well informed, and speaks English very well. She has a warm personality and is very likable. She taught us a lot about modern Japanese culture. Very highly recommended.

Decided to have a personal guide the first day we were in Tokyo. Best decision we ever made and especially choosing Eriko. Picked her partially as she had spent some time in Australia and be familiar with Australians. She was brilliant, on time at hotel to pick us up then got our train cards organised and guided us through the maize of getting around Tokyo by the various train companies. She tailored our day to suit what we wanted to do so totally flexible. Excellent English, Highly recommend.

Eriko was a superb guide. Nothing was to much to ask, and her knowledge of Tokyo and Japan's history was excellent. Eriko assisted my wife and I through the JR system, showed us out of the way spots that you would normally never see as a tourist, and gave us great ideas for the rest of our stay in Japan. Eriko came recommended to me, and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending her as your Tokyo guide. Thanks for a great day Eriko!

BOOK THIS GUIDE! Fantastically crafted day with Eriko, accommodating two adults and two teens (boy 13 and girl 15) so that we all had a perfect day with sights and experiences, with highlighted landmarks and interesting side spots, with insight and information that interested all of us. Wonderfully knowledgeable, friendly, humorous, patient, and kind, Eriko helped us navigate and thoroughly enjoy Tokyo. SO HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you, Eriko!

We have had a wonderful day with Eriko, who is a truly delightful lady. She listened to our needs, and met them fully. We saw a lot more of Tokyo using Eriko as our guide, and gained confidence in negotiating the Tokyo metro system!! We saw a mix of the old, and the new, which is how we wanted it. We have some great memories and would throughly recommend Eriko as a guide. Her English is excellent, which is always a great benefit when there are things to explain, and questions to answer.

Eriko was a fantastic tour guide. She met us at Haneda airport where we had a long layover and we spent about 7 hours seeing some of the highlights of Tokyo as we had not been there before. You obviously can't see and appreciate Tokyo in a day but she did a great job showing us some of the highlights and was super informative teaching us about Japanese culture and tradition. She's an absolute pleasure to be with and my family of 4 highly recommends her!

A very charming, knowledgeable guide that openly exuded her joy in what she does very well - show visitors Tokyo. Eriko was very accommodating in helping us to determine which parts of this vast city were of interest. Eriko's command of English is A1, as is her inbuilt GPS navigation through the maze of the Tokyo subway system, the only EFFICIENT way of getting around.

Eriko was great! We have used tours by locals in a dozen places and never had a tour guide better. She was so generous in answering our personal questions. She gave us a better understanding of Japanese culture than we could have gotten in any book or TV show. And, she's fun to be with.

We spent a wonderful day touring Tokyo with Eriko. We would not have seen half of what we saw without her expertise and ease in navigating the transportation system. The information that she shared with us about the history and traditions of Japan/Tokyo really enriched our experience. We visited a full complement of temples, shrines, gardens, etc. and she kept the itinerary diverse, flexible and interesting. At the end of the day, we invited her to come to the U.S. and visit us! Eriko is the best!

Eriko was an amazing guide! Once we booked our tour we sent a few emails back and forth in order to come up with the perfect itinerary for our day. Since this was our first day in Tokyo, Eriko did a great job to get us set up with a metro card and explain the train system to us so we could easily navigate it on our own for the rest of the trip. Eriko is very knowledgeable, kind, and a lovely person to be around. She taught us so much about Japan in just one day and I feel like we gained a friend!

We had a great 1.5 days with Eriko in Tokyo - among other things Akihabara (VR games etc), Shinjuku - Shaved Ice on top floor off Tokyp City Hall, Senso-ji temple, Meji shrine and park and a fascinating Buddhist fire ceremony. Eriko was particularly personable and the whole family connected well with her. Her English is excellent after stays abroad in Australia and Canada. She also had a very interesting perspective on Japanese culture after having spent time abroad. I can definitely recommend Eriko.

The places and sites that Eriko escorted us to ,educated us to the culture of the people of Japan and the beauty of Tokyo's gardens , buildings and waterways. This was our first time in Japan. Eriko took us by train and boat,to each place we visited. The imperial gardens with the 300 year old bonzai's, the imperial temple in old town, the "sega" building, the hustle and bustle of the market leading to the temple. All are unforgettable to us, especially the view of the city from high above in a skyscraper

It truly was a perfect day! After fantastic suggestions by Eriko-san, we decided on an itinerary of old and new Tokyo as I have my teenage boys on this trip. Eriko-san is knowledgable, organized, and has a wonderful personality which made for a fun and busy day. Watching her navigate the city, made it so much easier to navigate the trains and subways on our own thereafter. We visited Meiji Shrine, Harajuku, Akihabara, Monzennakacho, Sensoji Temple and Tokyo Skytree. Domo arigato gozaimasu Eriko-san!

In the sweltering heat of mid-July, Eriko maintained an incredibly graceful composure and helped us all feel cooler following her lead. She is very knowledgeable and was able to accommodate all of our interests. Eriko is a true 5-star guide and we are grateful to have spent the day with her.

Eriko guided me around Japan and showed me different cities. her knowledge was interesting about old Japanese story about 2 fishers caught gold statue and took it to their master and build the temple, I think the temple was in Asakusa city if I am correct, and information about lion the protector and wolf the passenger. I enjoyed my time with her learning one of their cultures at fire temple. so and the end I recommend you to choose Ms Eriko. being around her like I know her for years as a friend.

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 :)
