“ 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

“ Excellent guide ”

Eric was a fantastic guide. Being from the city, he was both knowledgeable about the sites in Kyoto and extremely kind as well. He helped us schedule our day and provided us with recommendations for restaurants and other activities for the rest of our time in Kyoto. Additionally, he took our booking one day in advance after our other cancelled. Highly recommend.

ERIC:

Hi Mr James Thank you for your mail and I am happy to hear from you that you enjoyed Kyoto Please come to Kyoto again. Stop I felt all of you are nice guy and very tuff. Eric Tanaka
