“ 40th Reunion with ERIKO as our guide ”

ERIKO made our 1 day Tokyo tour THE highlight of our Japan trip. She planned out the day efficiently with the sites we wanted to see, using different modes of transportation, as well as added her own touches to make it a special day. We were meeting 2 Japanese friends, that we haven't seen for 40 years.... She communicated well with all of us, and was an active part of the conversation and activities of the day. She had great visual aids. And selected a perfect lunch venue to eat Japanese pancake. The only way to describe our day was WONDERFUL!! We would definitely recommend ERIKO. AND we would definitely hire her again if we get back to Tokyo. The Morton's from Nebraska, USA

“ 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.

ERIKO:

“ 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:

Hi Glenn, Thank you very much for a great review. Before your Tokyo tour, you experienced a lot of adventures in other areas, but you seemed to enjoy other aspects of Japan. I was glad to help you to explore Tokyo. Hope this tour became a good memory of your trip. Thank you again. Eriko

“ 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.

ERIKO:

Hi Jeannie, Thank you very much for a great review. I clearly remember what we enjoyed. You are very interested in Japanese history, which made me more excited to guide you around the places you wanted to visit. I hope my Tokyo tour helps you to learn about Japan. Please enjoy your life! Eriko
