Eri went out of her way to ensure we had a memorable experience. The tour was a highlight of our 2 weeks in Japan. She was also incredibly flexible and allowed us to make several last minute changes in the itinerary to adapt to our interests. Kind, friendly, very knowledgeable and perfectly organized. Can't speak highly enough of Eri or this tour. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Marc-san, thank you for your wonderful review and comment! Yes, I also enjoyed the lovely time with you. I look forward to seeing you again next time!!

Eri is a truly wonderful, professional guide. Her warmth, kindness and patience made the two tours I did with Eri very special indeed. She speaks excellent English and provided so much information about each area we visited. I have no hesitation in recommending Eri for a most enjoyable tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jacqueline-san, thank you for your warm message! And I also enjoyed the lovely days with you, especially strolling gardens. Hope to see you again in the future :)

Eri was an outstanding guide for our party of five adults during two days in Kyoto. She graciously led us through a number of the most iconic World Heritage sites, as well as to some less-touristed hidden gems and interesting residential areas. Charming and vivacious, she is a well-informed Kyoto native. Eri arranged lunch at wonderful places both days and pointed out interesting shops and places to stop for a snack. We could not have been more pleased with this introduction to a beautiful city

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Judith-san, thank you for your message! Yes, I also enjoyed these 2 days with you all. We visited many places together and walked a lot :) Please take care of yourselves and hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Japan!

Eri was an excellent guide. She was well prepared and flexible enough to change sites we wished to see once the tour began. She had handouts and illustrations which made the tour more enjoyable and fun. I would recommend her highly to anyone interested in a full day tour of Kyoto. Pete

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Peter-san, thank you for your wonderful review and comment! I also enjoyed the beautiful day with all of you. Since we visited many places on your last day of Japan, please take care of yourself and hope to see you again!!

Eri spent two full days in Kyoto with us, and gave us a wonderful set of tours. Before we arrived, she spent a significant amount of time and effort on emails with me and the drafting of an itinerary that met all our varied requests, including getting us lottery ticket to a special garden. She then showed us Kyoto in all its glory. We were impressed that there was no question that stumped her, and we learned an enormous amount about Kyoto and Japan. She was completely terrific and we highly recommend her.

My wife and I were delighted with our choice. Eri is charming and informative. We asked her to plan a tour for first-time visitors to Kyoto, and we were very pleased with her itinerary. We enjoyed our time together, and would book her again without hesitation. Eri's command of English is excellent, and she is very easy to understand.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bill, thank you for your wonderful message! I also enjoyed the day with you :) Please take care of yourself after the long trip and hope to see you again!!

Eri is amazing and truly an outstanding tour guide. I had a fantastic day in Kyoto with Eri and I couldn't have done it without her. Eri was very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. She spoke fluent English and really made my trip in Kyoto. Without Eri and this tour, I would have been lost, confused, and unable to communicate with the locals. Thanks again Eri.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard, thank you for your wonderful review! I also enjoyed the lovely day with you all. We were so lucky to see beautiful autumn leaves :) I hope you'll enjoy the rest of the trip in the world!

We had the pleasure to have Eri as guide in Kyoto in two days from 9 to 17 and we had a wonderful time together. Eri is a kind person and she has a wonderful personality, she speaks perfectly english, she knows a lot about the different attractions that we saw during our 2 days. Finally, she told us several interesting things about the typically Japanese way of living and traditions. We can strongly recommend Eri.

Eri is WAY more than a five! She is simply the best tour guide my husband and I have EVER had. Aside from being incredibly knowledgeable about all things Japan AND very fluent in English, she is a lovely human being: kind, thoughtful, and a real pleasure to spend time with. When we return to Japan, we will be spending more time with Eri on Kyoto adventures! Susan & Richard Loveless USA

Eri made my trip to Kyoto truly special. I had been travelling alone through Japan which is fine for sightseeing, but spending the day with Eri taught me so much about the culture. She was endlessly patient with my questions about Japan and Kyoto; knowledgeable about local design, religion, art and traditions; kind and warm and very easy to get along with. I'll be returning to Japan soon, and will not hesitate in booking another tour with Eri!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Samantha, thank you so much for your wonderful review and message! Yes, we did a lot of things together in one day and I also enjoyed the day with you! Hope to see you again in the future!!

This is my second tour with Eri and once again everything was as I wished it to be. Eri knows how to give just the right amount of information that helps you understand what you are seeing but still gives you time to enjoy the site. I travel all over the world and use private guides for my first experience in each place. Eri made my first visit to Kyoto fun and educational. She is a considerate and knowledgeable guide. I plan to send 40 college students next summer and hope Eri is able to guide them.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeff, Thank you for your wonderful review again :) Yes! I'm looking forward to seeing you and your students next summer!!

Eri is an absolute delight. Not only does she have an amazing knowledge of Kyoto, but she also has a casual charm and sense of fun which made our tours with her amongst the most enjoyable and memorable of our trip to Japan. She is well prepared, flexible and clearly loves what she does. Her English is exceptional and she also helped us with bookings and advice for other activities. We were very privileged to have Eri as our guide and we would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for the very best.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bill, Teresa and Adrian, Thank you for these two days! And thank you so much for your wonderful review. I also enjoyed the time with you in the fresh green season! I look forward to seeing you again in your country next time :) ARIGATO!

Eri provided an individualized tour of gardens of various styles and showed me five gardens. She enhanced my understanding of the structure and philosophy behind the gardens. We saw gardens away from crowded tourist sites. It was precisely what I was hoping for.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chuck, thank you so much for your wonderful comment. I also enjoyed the time with you looking and talking about the garden and Japanese things. I look forward to seeing you again in the future:)

We spend a wonderful day with Eri visiting the northern and western areas of Kyoto. We travelled with two teens and Eri made sure that the itinerary was well suited for the entire group. Eri sent me 2 emails ahead of the tour to make sure we like the sites. Eri was so thoughtful throughout the day. She never rushed us and let us explore the areas on our own face. Eti incorporate a tea ceremony ( by our request). Eri gave us persolized information on things to do on other days and followed us with an email

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Limor-san, Thank you for your wonderful message and review! We did a lot of things in a day and I also enjoyed the lovely time with you all. And I decided to buy iphone7,haha. Hope to see you again! OKINI!!

Eri was a perfect tour guide, we were so happy that we had a whole day with her! We booked the 8 hour tour, and let her know that it was going to be our second day in Japan and wanted to see and learn as much as possible. The shrines and temples we visited were breathtaking, and Eri was extremely knowledgable about the sites and history. It ended up being one of our favorite days of our trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Angela and Andrew! Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I hope you could enjoy many sites in Kyoto and other areas in Japan,too :) Look forward to seeing you again!!

Perfect day with the perfect guide! Kyoto under the snow was magical and so was the knowledge and absolute generosity and kindness of Eri. I could not have dreamed of a better day and a better person to share it with. From the temples visits, to the zen buddhist lunch, to the tea ceremony, everything was so well planned. I just had to enjoy the immense and extraordinary beauty of the city. Eri's choice of itinerary was perfect for one day of discovery. Thank you Eri for the most magical time in Kyoto

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Valerie,thank you so much for your wonderful message and review! Thanks to you,the deity of sunshine :), I also enjoyed the magical view dressed with snow!! Wish you be always filled with happiness.

Eri is a wonderful guide. I couldn't have asked for more. She was amazingly thoughtful, adding some key elements to the custom tour I had requested and making some superb suggestions. She also has rich knowledge of Kyoto, it's history and it's people. She also went the extra mile, helping me find some unusual souvenirs I had asked for, and also helping me with a train ticket issue that could have been a real problem if it wasn't for her. I would recommend her to anyone. A+, excellent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: ARIGATO! Adam, Thank you for your wonderful review. I also enjoyed the beautiful day with you visiting many sites! I look forward to meeting you in the future!!
