Riko was an excellent tour guide who led us on a fantastic adventure throughout Tokyo. For many of us, her tour was actually the highlight of the trip with the many memorable experiences all in a single day. She allowed us to customize the places we wanted to see and we kept a good pace in order to ensure visiting all the locales. She greatly assisted us in familiarizing ourselves with the subway system, as well as provided us with information on places we could see on our own later (as well as instructions on how to return to shopping areas we had already visited). Her sushi restaurant selection was also fantastic with the food being fresh and delicious. I highly recommend taking her tour should you ever decide to visit Tokyo. Thank you Riko!

Riko:
Hi Alexander, thank you so much for taking time to send the review on our tour ! After the tour, you looked quite tired because of the jut lag? or long walk? But I'm glad to know you enjoyed the tour with me. The sushi restaurant we went to is my favorite&secret restaurant which I take only special people. I'm also happy to hear you like it. I hope to see you and your family again sometime in the future. Thank you again!! Riko

“ Energetic & very helpful ! ”

Riko was very helpful on my one day research tour. She did the scheduling perfectly and was open to my last minute changes well. Will sure look her up on my next trip to Japan!!

Riko:
Dear Tiffany, Thank you so much for having me as your guide the other day and posting your review on the the website. The research tour with you was so much fun to me. (I sometimes forgot that I was on duty. ) I hope to see you and help your research again sometime soon! Sincerely, Riko

“ Excellent Guide + Excellent Tour ”

Riko is spectacular. I've been working for a large online travel agency in the world and have taken many organized tours and had many tour guides. Riko was one of the best I've come across. She meant us on-time at the lobby of the hotel. She took us to the designated site seeing locations quickly and efficiently. She taught us how to navigate the subway system in Tokyo. As the tour went, she explained all the details of Japanese culture all the way down to the identifying local fruit and products uniquely Japanese. She took us to a great restaurant for lunch where the locals eat. She took us to all the designated sites in the itinerary on-time with plenty of time to do what we want on each. She mentioned that the tour was flexible given it is private but the way it was laid out was perfect in my opinion. Finally, she led us all the way back a block from our hotel so we can have dinner before ending the tour. Interestingly, while on tour, a couple (a complete stranger but fellow tourist from Canada) who was at the Tsukiji fish market the same time as us (this couple booked a tour bus group) asked me if Riko was a relative or friend because she overheard her explaining all the intricate details of the market (including explaining all the unique Japanese items we saw) and I told this couple that she's a private guide. This fellow traveler told me she would have gladly paid Riko for a private tour than being stuck in a bus tour with dozens of other tourist with hardly any personal service like what Riko provided us. I wholeheartedly agree. This is the way to go. I argue that if you were a couple like us, I would gladly do this private tour guide way over and over again. Riko spoke perfect English and her insights into the city and culture made our first trip to Tokyo just perfect. I do plan to Tokyo again next year and hope to call on Riko again to take me to another part of Tokyo.

Riko:
Dear Mark, Thank you so much for sending such a wonderful review to the website. I’m very happy to know that you were satisfied with my service. (I didn’t know that you have been working for a travel agency and have experienced many tour guides before!) What I always do on my tours is that just doing my best for my clients so that they can make the most of limited time and enjoy a tour as best they can. But needless to say, clients’ interests and needs are always different. To cater their various requirements is not always easy. But I love this job and it’s my great joy to make efforts to provide the best tour for each of them. Since you are both very nice and friendly, I enjoyed myself showing you around on that day. It was nice meeting you and your beautiful wife! I hope to see you again in the near future. If I could have a chance to tour your again, that would be great. Say hi to your wife! Thank you again, Mark!! Riko

“ Look no further! Choose this tour guide! ”

Riko is a lovely Japanese woman who is very easy to understand, relaxed and knows about Japan in great detail. On our personal tour (Riko's Best Spots of Tokyo (8h)), Riko was super flexible and would change the day's agenda based on what we were interested in seeing. She provided great tips on how to survive in Japan; such as how to buy train tickets and the difference between the red and blue labels at vending machines. Her knowledge on the history of Japan is excellent and she shared it with us like a good story. She is also very contemporary, knowing about how the Japanese people and culture exists today; and she also shared this with us as part of the tour (I personally really liked Akihabara and the otaku culture there). Tokyo is a great city and I very much look forward to visiting again. Thanks Riko!

Riko:
Dear Byron, Thank you so much for having me as your guide the other day, in addition, for sending such a wonderful review about me. I really appreciate it. I also had a great time with you and your family. I'm happy to know that you came to like Tokyo. I showed you some high lights of Tokyo, but there are more attractions in this city. Please come again, and discover other aspects of Tokyo. If I could help you to do that, that would be great! Anyway, it was very nice meeting you and your family. Thank you once again!! Riko

“ Great first impressions ”

There were 3 friends travelling together and Riko found ways to reach out to each of us and our interests individually. It was an exceptional day and I think we mastered the underground system in Tokyo. We had an exceptional time touring the grounds of the Imperial Palace among other beautiful sites.

Riko:
Dear Ms. Annemarie, Thank you very much for taking your time to send the review for me. I'm so happy to know that you enjoyed the tours with me. I also enjoyed touring the three of you for two days. I hope to see you again near future, maybe in cherry blossom season!! Thank you again! Riko
