Hi, I’m Riko. I’m a national certified tour guide. I have been living in Tokyo more than 30 years, so I could say that I know Tokyo like the palm of my hand.

Riko is obviously a very professional tour guide who keeps her client's safety and wishes as her highest priority of the day. Her warm and caring personality just gives her tours an extra treat for the day. My family used Riko's services as a private guide for a day and she provied a valuable Tokyo experience as well as a good time for our short stay. She certainly would be highly recommended by us. -Neal Werner-
Riko led myself my wife and our 2 sons both in there late 20s around Tokyo. She managed to find something for everyone from Samurais to Sumo to Honda robots. We followed our visit to Tokyo with a 8 day guided ski trip. The ski trip guides could no believe how much we saw in Tokyo in 3 days. Looking back on the photos either can I. The most amazing thing happened when my wife left a bag with post cards on a tram ride around the city. We just figured that they were lost, end of story. The next day Riko came to our hotel with them. She called the lost and found. It followed in Japan that the bags with the cards had been turned in. On her own time Riko retrieved them and returned them to us. You can't get any better care than that. Thank you Riko.
We had an excellent day with Riko. She was very flexible and could accommodate all of our requests to see certain sights in Tokyo. Her English was very good and we had great conversations about the locations we visited. We would highly recommend her as a tour guide.
We had a great day walking our way through some of the highlights in Tokyo with our guide Riko. It was a beautiful day and the 8 hours flew by. We were taken to many of the places Riko suggests on her private tour, but she was also able to change some of the destinations to suit our party of 8. She taught us how to buy tickets and navigate our way through the subways which can be quite daunting. She is very knowledgeable and her English is good and I would highly recommend her to others who may want to see Tokyo is a day. Thank you for showing us around Riko we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Okay, so if you have a husband and two adult children traveling with you that all have very different interests, then Riko is the guide for you. Our four day tour was an unforgettable experience! Riko made navigating hectic Tokyo not only a breeze but tons of fun. We were satisfied with points of interest from Imperial gardens and Shinto shrines to cat cafes and coffee shops. The stress free trip and Riko's attention to detail was immaculate including a day trip to Mt. Fuji with a private driver. Riko is not only a fantastic tour guide, but we are honored to call her our friend! Thank you Riko!!
