“ One day Tokyo Highlights ”

Eiko was delightful, knowledgable and fun! She also spoke excellent English. Highly recommended

Eiko:

Hi Steaven and Laura!! Thank you very much for a too nice review!! Throughout the tour, I felt very comfortable to be with you may be because you were broad-minded persons. And not only the size of your heart, you were tall too! The tempra restaurant table was too small for us all, wasn't it. :-) We needed to walk for a long time at Meiji shrine. Thank you very much for your patience. The cherry blossoms at Ueno park were so beautiful! And that was the place we knew the new Japanese era name 'Reiwa'!! Thank you for sharing this important moment with us, Japanese people! I'm wishing your daughter will be qualified for 2020 Tokyo summer!! Arigatou gozaimashita!

“ Perfect guide for our family of 4 ”

We’ve just spent 2 wonderful days with Eiko (pronounced “A-co”). Eiko is super friendly, outgoing and fun, and also patient and flexible. We are a family of 4 with 2 daughters aged 9 and 10. We spent 1 day on the east side of Tokyo and 1 day on the west side. Eiko met us at our hotel each morning and navigated us through the city with ease - allowing my husband and I to relax and have fun, rather than stressing over the subway lines, station exits and where to cross the streets. Eiko was very sweet with our daughters, encouraging our oldest while she tried to find a used kimono to purchase and chasing after our youngest as she fearlessly forged ahead of our group in the busiest stations. Along the way, Eiko shared interested historical tidbits and also details about daily, regular life in ... read more

Eiko:

Hi Kate! This is a very nice review!! Thank you so much. :-) I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour! Throughout the tour, I also felt really happy because you always showed your interests to the things I explained and the places I took you. The food sample shop, the goldfish place, Cherry blossoms along the Meguro river, Shibuya scramble, the fortune telling paper of Meiji shrine, animal cafe, kimono place and so on!! And the girls were so lovely!! Once again, thank you so much for having me as your Tokyo guide! I'm hopig that the rest of your trip will be a memorable one to all of you!! Please come back to Tokyo soon!! Aunty Eiko is always waiting for you!! :-) Until then, take care! Eiko
