“ Very informative and personal tour of Gion ”

We arranged to take the Kyoto Night Walking tour with Eric to see Gion at night. Eric was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us insight on Kyoto history and culture (then and now). He pointed out interesting details (in the buildings and streets) which made the tour more personal. Besides strolling through the places listed on the tour, we also saw the Kabuki Theater and learned a bit about kabuki. My wife was very appreciative that we were able to stop and buy gifts from a well-known/established Kyoto cloth shop that Eric pointed out. Eric, thank you very much for a memorable tour of Gion area!


Thank you Mr Gerard Family for your comments I am very happy to hear from you that you enjoyed the night tour with me. You are nice family and I wish if you come to Kyoto again Merry Christmas and wishing you A Happy New Year ! Eric Tanaka

“ Wonderful tour! I would give 6 stars if I could! ”

My wife and I were traveling to the Kyoto area for the first time, and we really wanted a well-informed tour guide given how much there is to do and see in this area. Eric was very well-rated for this region, and we could not have been happier with having had him as our tour guide. In the span of just over 8 hours, Eric took us to multiple historic sites and tourist attractions around Kyoto as well as Nara with great efficiency. Even so, Eric was incredibly friendly and patient with us and we never felt rushed at any point during the day. He was upbeat and enthusiastic the entire time, and he really went above and beyond to make sure that we felt comfortable and that our questions were answered. He was also very well-informed about the relevant history of our tour sites, and he was even ab... read more

“ Day trip from Osaka to Nara ”

I hired Eric to guide my parents from Osaka to Nara and back to Osaka for a day trip. He was very conscientious and looked for elevators and escalators for my aging parents and took a slow pace. He guided them to Nara deer park and a temple, then back to Osaka for Skytree and dontonburi exploring. And gave them a great recommendation for shabu shabu lunch. My father speaks a little japanese so that was helpful as Eric has is a bit of a japanese accent. But that did not impact the tour at all. Great guide that listened and took extra time and was able to book him the night before. Thank you!


Thank you for your happy comments to me. My principal on tour is to enjoy tour with our guests and it is my pleasure that we had a good time with your parents Please come to Japan again. Eric Tanaka

He is very attentive to your preferences and interests, he made an itinerary which suited the most my interests and ensured the most efficient use of time. With interesting insights about Japan, Japanese life style and history, it was a very interesting and enjoyable tour. Many thanks.
