“ Kyoto and Osaka ”

After extensive research into private guides, we are so happy and lucky we found Eric! He is amazing! He is very knowledgeable about Kyoto, Osaka, Japan history, and he navigated the train/subway system with ease. We were traveling in a party of 7 with a wheelchair (grandpa can only walk short distances) and an 8 month old baby, so we had to take a lot of elevators. He was very patient and even in the bustle of people at the train stations, he kept everything calm and we did not feel rushed. We were able to see everything he had planned out on our itinerary - which for two days was impressive! Day 1 Kyoto: We saw the Fushimi Inari Shrine with 1000 Tori, Kyoto Imperial Palace, ate lunch at a popular Japanese “fast food” (Nakai - although fast it was so yummy!), Ginkakuji (the golden tem... read more

“ Hiroshima, Nara, Osaka, and Kobe ”

I had asked Eric to create an itinerary for two days for my family of six. My request was to visit Hiroshima, Nara, Osaka, and Kobe from Kyoto from where we were staying. We ended up visiting Hiroshima and Miyajima on day 1. We used taxis and trains to get to our destinations thru Eric's guidance. We also used a ferrry to get to Miyajima from Hiroshima. We came across some deer along the way to the itsukushima shrine and Torii Gate. Torii Gate was under repair so it wasn't the best time to get some great photos. The scenery there was still worth visiting. We ferried back to Hiroshima and took a train and taxi to see Peace Memorial Park. It was a real moving experience especially when we were going thru the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. Next day we decided to visi... read more

“ Excellent Kyoto Tour . ”

Our family of 5 people was only scheduled to be in Kyoto for 2 days when we booked our tour with Eric. Eric took us to 4 areas in one full day. He was accommodating, patient, and thorough, customizing an entire tour of the city based on our interests, requests, and preferences. He even went to eat dinner with us at the end of the tour. Thanks to him we were able to experience the hidden and authentic spots of the city--places we could have never enjoyed if we didn't have a native Japanese local with us. Eric can explain cultural quirks and differences to foreign visitors. Not only that, his personality is wonderful, and he is sincere, funny, patient, and kind.

ERIC:

Ms Kim I am very happy to have your comments for the tour June 11 See you next time ! Eric Tanaka
