“ Knowledgable and Friendly Guide ”

We booked Eriko for a couple of tours whilst in Tokyo and found it to be one of the best decisions we made. Not only very knowledgeable providing interesting information on the places visited but also a very friendly lady who listens to what the client wishes out of the chosen tour. We highly recommend Eriko to anyone looking for a competent guide who speaks good English. Book ahead to ensure you can acquire Eriko's Tour Guide Services. Thank you Eriko for our time together in Tokyo.

“ Great tour guide to interesting locations ”

My son and I enjoyed a great day with Eriko. We had already spent guided day previously in Tokyo so we had seen some of the sights already. Eriko responded beautifully and developed a schedule on the spot that lead to a very interesting and enjoyable day. Thank you Eriko for your expert guiding from Glenn and Oscar!
