Eriko-san was outstanding! She is knowledgeable, warm, thoughtful and very well organized. We had a last minute change in schedule that had us arriving an hour early, and she graciously filled the time with interesting sites in Nagano. I would highly recommend he die any tour that she does.

We spent two wonderful days with Eriko. She was very accommodating and flexible. We loved learning about Nagano with her. We especially loved the cooking class she arranged, and the surprise visit in the town from the snow monkeys. She also brought us delicious apples from her own trees.

We enjoyed our day in Matsumoto with Eriko! We were staying in Matusmoto, so she had organized our day to begin with a tour of Matsumoto castle and a short train ride to Azumino to visit the country and a wasabi farm. We had planned to bike at Azumino, but the weather was very rainy. Nonetheless, Eriko helped us make the best of the day. This was my third day with a local guide on this trip to Japan ... meeting these individuals helped us really make the very most of this trip.

We took a day trip from Tokyo to Nagano and spent a fabulous day with Eriko! We started our tour with the sake tour and tasting and then went to a business that employs Nagano seniors and made our own delicious local dumpling-type dish. Next was the train to the Snow Monkey Park, a definite highlight of our 2 weeks in Japan. There were many babies and young monkeys playing and wrestling. Eriko clearly loves her city and is eager to share it with visitors. We highly recommend Eriko and Nagano!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Becky, what a wonderful family that you have! Thank you for being open and kind!

We utilized Eriko for a two day tour of the Nagano area and thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. She's very passionate about the area, the food, and the sights and we were very pleased with all the places we visited. She was also quick to suggest alternative plans when a train issue arose, and we were very happy with the result. We would absolutely utilize her again upon a visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Arigato, Tom and your family! I am happy that your boys have got opportunities to interact with local school boys, and also Kimono and hot spring. Sending you positive thoughts to your sweet family.

Eriko was very nice and very knowledgeable and took the time to reach out in advance to ensure we were prepared for our trip. She knows so much about the area and the local people and was able to educate us around different aspects of Japanese culture.
Guide was accommodating to us spending more time at places we were more interested in. Quite knowledgeable and no issues with conversing in English. While waiting for our train, also brought us to a free hotspring foot bath for a relaxing soak. No regrets hiring the guide for this one day trip in Nagano.

Eriko was a great guide. Her passion and knowledge of the Nagano region rubbed off on us and our day with her was a highlight of our trip. Highly recommended.
We had a very special day out with Eriko. She met us at the station, on time and helped us to discover a beautiful area, Togakushi, near Nagano out in nature. Eriko is very calm, knowledgeable, helpful and kind. Thank you.
