“ 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!

“ Eriko Nomoto- Review -Tokyo Guide ”

My husband and I enjoyed the time we spent with Eriko. She is very knowledgeable in all the places she took us - the temple, shrine, parks. She even managed to get us to a free Geisha show. Amazing. Wonderful trip. Jim and I are very grateful to have her as a guide.

“ Amazing overview of Tokyo ”

Eriko was very organized, efficient, patient and kind. She picked us up at our hotel, helped us get our Suica cards and navigate the subways, then took us on a whirlwind tour through Tokyo to the sites we had picked ( Meiji shrine, imperial palace gardens, Ueno Park and Sensoji temple ) after 25,000 step she took us back to our hotel. We had a wonderf sushi lunch at the fish market where Eriko showed us the proper way to eat sushi. She also showed us how to wash our hands before entering a shrine and how to pray at the shrine. After the tour she sent us a list of additional places we should go to ( as she knew we would be exploring on our own for the next few days) and how to get there based on my children’s interests (Pokemon Center, video games, the best place to see cherry blossoms and go row boating, museums as well as other cultural sites). Overall worth every penny. It was like having a friend in Tokyo show you around and make sure you were comfortable. THANK YOU ERIKO!!!
