“ Incredible ”

Eriko was incredible. She was thoughtful and prepared. We allowed us to learn more about the Japanese culture. It was like walking around the city with a friend. It was the best way to spend our first day in Tokyo.


Thank you for the kind words LeeAnn. I had a wonderful time with you and Geoffery exploring around Tokyo, learning about your culture, and sharing our travel stories! Hopefully, we'll see each other again in your beautiful country in the near future! All the best, Eriko

“ Short visit to Tokyo ”

Excellent guide. We only had 1 day with teenager boys and she went above and beyond to satisfy all of us showing all the best Tokyo has to offer. We highly recommend her.Thank you Eriko for your time with us. We felt like visiting a family member in Japan.


Thank you, Joanna, for taking the time to write this great review. I will treasure the memory of our time in Tokyo. Wishing you and your lovely family a wonderful year filled with love and deep happiness! Hope to see you again in the US. Happy New Year! Eriko

“ Tokyo possible with a 2 yr old with Eriko ”

Eriko is awesome and would highly recommend her to my friends and family! Very personable, knowledgeable, helpful, and flexible when taking us and our 2yr old son around Tokyo in a stroller! Maneuvering around a busy city is tough, but she was very patient and understanding. With that said, she took us sight seeing around the city, lunch in Ginza (which was excellent!), and ended the tour at a Christmas market. She speaks very good English and has traveled around the world. It’s nice to meet people who love to travel and share stories of people and places they travel too. would recommend her again and waiting to return the favor if she ever comes to our city!


Nick, Thank you very much for the kind words. I had such a memorable day filled with laughter with your lovely family! It was my absolute pleasure to be part of your special trip and share my love of this city with you. Domo Arigato. Have a wonderful New Year! Your friend, Eriko

“ 5 hour tour of Tokyo ”

I had a long layover and Narita and Eriko provided a wonderful tour of Tokyo. She recommended a train from the airport which only took 45 min instead of a 90 min drive to maximize time in the city. She selected some wonderful sites and was so helpful at explaining the culture and the history of the city. I loved my tour and would book with her again if I have the opportunity to return to Japan.
