As this was my family's first trip to Japan I decided at the last minute to hire a tour guide to help acclimate us to the city. The house we were renting was off the beaten path and somewhat hard to find. I was concerned how we were going to hook up her. Riki was great from the beginning when she came and picked us up to start our tour. She was extremely knowledgeable about everything you could possibly want to know, showed us how to use the subway and how to get around, was very flexible and amazingly energetic. The tour we took was for eight hours and she had a list of the sights that she thought we would enjoy. From shrines to the fish market to a department store and so so much more. We could have done only her one day tour and I would have felt we had taken in the flavor of what Tokyo is. Yet even with what she had planned when my boys wanted to go shopping in some one of a kind clothing stores she knew where they were and took them around until they went everywhere they wanted to go. We also stopped and spent probably an hour at a festival that was occurring on the street. She was fun and made the trip very enjoyable. At the end of the tour she took us all the way back home! I cannot recommend her highly enough!! Thank you again Riko!
