Hello everyone,

I am Eriko, a mother of two adult sons, a former backpacker, and an open-minded tour guide.
I was born and grew up in Aichi Prefecture in central Japan. With a 6-year residence in Hong Kong, I have lived in Tokyo with my family for almost 30 years now.

Before I became a certified tour guide, I had been a Tokyo Metropolitan volunteer tour guide for two years. After I got the tour guide license, I took special guiding training in various places such as TOKYO, HAKONE, NIKKO, NARA, KYOTO and more. Also, I'm very familiar with my hometown areas such as AICHI and GIFU including NAKASENDO OLD ROAD, TAKAYAMA, SHIRAKAWAGO etc.

There are a lot of things I enjoy, such as traveling, meeting with people from the world, photography, appreciating art, doing gardening, learning what I have not known yet. Especially, I like traveling at home and abroad based on the itineraries I make on my own.

I have explored more than 20 countries, and was always helped by local people when I got troubles. Now I think this is my turn to assist you so you can explore Japan in a relaxing way. I am flexible about destinations and can arrange the tours according to your preference. I'd like to make your travel to Japan special by sharing my experiences, knowledge and love of all things Japanese with you.

Let's explore Japan together! I'm here to guide you! read more

“ Excellent Experience ”

Eriko is a well excellant guide and wonderful person. I am a traveler who has been to many locations around the globe and have used multiple personal guiding services. Eriko is the best...if you are considering hiring a English speaking guide, look no further. I visited Tokyo with my 2 adult children. Not only did we see the main Tokyo attractions, but she showed us many “off the beaten path” locations as well. I could go on and on, but really the main thing is she is a great person who knows the city, is educated on Japanese history and speaks excellant English. Thank you Eriko.

“ Wonderful introduction to Tokyo ”

What a wonderful tour Eriko provided for our family of 4 on our first full day in Tokyo. She is an incredibly warm and kind lady and she went to great lengths to make sure that we were all comfortable, especially our 8 year-old son. Having her expertise to navigate the complex train system, avoid pedestrian vs. cart collisions in Tsujiki Fish Market and explain the rich history of Hamaroken Garden was invaluable. She takes a lot of time and care to ensure a positive experience for her guests.
