Eriko was very knowledgeable and well organized. She planned an amazing day for us- tailored to our interests (including the Meiji Shrine, Fish Market and lots of sushi!) and helped us figure out the transit. We learned so much about Japan's history, and loved every minute of the tour! She had many helpful suggestions for things we should do, and we highly recommend her!
