What an amazing day. Eriko was the perfect guide. We wanted to leave our options open and make it as flexible as possible. We were on the last day of a 3 week holiday and were concerned that we would be too tired for too much, but Eriko read the situation perfectly and monitored us & adjusted the day for us as she went along no matter what we threw at her. She knew everything everywhere. Her english was amazing as was her local knowledge (and her ability to find an elevator anywhere was second to none lol

Eriko is the best. She will pick you up at your convenience and effortlessly navigate you through the busy streets of Tokyo filling your day with beautiful sites and interesting insight. We customized to combine East Tokyo tour with private tea ceremony. in the tour we learned about and experienced some of Japan's Shinto and Buddhist cultures, including witnessing a fire ceremony. The tea ceremony was beautiful, educational, charming and had surprise guest. I could not rate higher or recommend more.

Eriko is the most delightful private tour guide. She is smart, observant and sensitive to client requirements. I seldom had a more relaxing tour whilst gathering knowledge of the city I am visiting. We really had great fun at sites which she suggested we visit.

Recommended!! Eriko was absolutely wonderful and went way above and beyond to provide us with a great tour of Tokyo. She had excellent knowledge of the sites and answered all our questions! My wife and I were both really impressed with what a great experience we had touring with Eriko. Being that my wife was pregnant and we were traveling with a 3 year old, we never would have expected such a fun tour where we got to see so many sites and still have time left over to do some shopping around Tokyo.

Eriko was amazing! She was super flexible and scheduled a unique tour around our own interests. The tour took us to see parts of Toyko we never would have experienced otherwise. She gave us helpful tips on how to travel around that we never would have realized. She even helped us set up our JR Pass and Suica card. All around, a great tour and a great guide!

Eriko gave a private tour for my son when we visited Tokyo. He absolutely loved it! Eriko has great suggestions and was very responsive. Thank you Eriko for an experience that he will remember for many years to come!

My husband and I travel all over the world -- I must say that Eriko was the most amazing guide we have ever had!. We saw so much in just two days ... and learned a great deal from her about Japan and it's culture. We will definitely be returning to Japan because of Eriko -- and look forward to another adventure with her!

Eriko is a fantastic tour guide. She is exceptionally knowledgeable, creative, and personable. She customized our tour to accommodate our requests, and introduced us to a Tokyo we never would have seen on our own!

Eriko was amazing. Her English is fantastic, having spent time in Australian and Canada. She customized our day and a half based on what we told her we were interested in and took us to out-of-the way places that were extraordinary and explained why they were important to Japanese culture. One of the highlights was a fire ceremony at a Buddhist temple. Hiring Eriko allowed us to see and understand Tokyo much better and get around safely and without stress .

Eriko was pleasant, punctual and had an amazing grasp of the Tokyo subway system, which we used extensively for two days. We could not have had the same experience on our own. She found two great lunch experiences, which we much enjoyed. She was somewhat reserved (polite) and could have been a little more outgoing with the 4 American travelers, but that certainly may have been our cultural differences, or dealing with our sense of humor. Overall, a very nice two days!

Eriko is kind, knowledgeable, and flexible. We had to make changes to our plans because of a typhoon that hit Tokyo and she handled it like a pro. Even the day afterwards, when there was closures and difficulty with public transportation, she made a lovely half day tour that included some wonderful sites that WERE open. Also she was very understanding of our need to minimize walking, which was great. We highly recommend Eriko!

Hello, It was a pleasure to be "guided " around Tokyo by Eriko. Eriko is a wonderfull person,very kind and very funny.We enjoyed the conversation with her. As a guide ,she was perfect. We wanted a guide to help us "get into Tokyo", both historic and contemporary ways, and she did. She walked us through amazing things and places,and answered to all our questions.So much to learn from her. She is really great as a guide,and a wonderful soul! Next year,when we come back to Tokyo,Eriko will be our guide!

We had a 1 day tour of Tokyo with Eriko. It was a delight from start to finish. Here's why. First: we discussed our interests with Eriko before the tour, and she took that information in to account, and proposed an itinerary that really suited us. Then: the tour itself was spot-on: we saw a slice of real Tokyo life, from graveyards, to ceremonies, to temples, shops and restaurants. And all the time - a great discussion that gave us colour and context for the city and its people. Brilliant! Thanks!

Eriko was simply amazing. We had a terrific day seeing so many of the best sights in Tokyo. I would highly recommend you use Eriko if you are looking for a fantastic friendly and knowledgeable guide. She speaks excellent English. We simply loved our day with her. She also took her time at the end of the day to help us plan some special things to do over the coming days. We had a " World Class" Experience!

Eriko is a very knowledgeable and personable tour guide. I cannot recommend her highly enough for anyone visiting Tokyo for the first time and who are interested in visiting some of the the 'must see' attractions and also getting a better appreciation for Japanese language and culture.

Eriko was an amazing guide. She started helping us way before our trip, answering questions and giving us advice. When it came to the actual tour she was incredibly knowledgeable and took us to some amazing sites. I think our favorite part of the tour was the fire ceremony we attended which was very insightful. We liked it so much we are booking her again!
