“ Four wonderful days with Eiko ”

Our family (me, my wife, and our 19 year old daughter) spent a delightful four days with Eiko touring Tokyo during our recent trip to Japan. Eiko designed a great, customized itinerary which incorporated both our suggestions for sites we wanted to visit and specific locations of interest to our daughter, who is an artist. Eiko has a wonderful sense of humor, was very helpful, and we enjoyed our time with her immensely.
