“ 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:

Hi Gary and Leith, Thank you so much for a great review. We enjoyed some off the beaten tracks in Tokyo and Hakone, I really enjoyed the tours with you, which are unforgettable memories and valuable guiding experiences. I hope to see you and have Katsudon again some day! Please take a good care!! 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

“ 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 ... read more

ERIKO:

Hello Vidya, Thank you very much for a great review. I am very happy to read your kind review. Your family really like the cherry blossoms and I hope you enjoyed them a lot. You were using chopsticks very well, so I believe you can enjoy sushi more in your state. I hope this trip becomes a good memory of Japan. Thanks again for joining my tour. Eriko

“ The highlight was Ueno park which was really very beautiful. ”

Eriko is a friendly person with poor knowledge about Tokyo. We did not get many explanations. In the afternoon she seemed to be already quite tired so she left us shortly after 4 pm. She was very helpfull when we wanted to change money.

ERIKO:

Thank you for taking time for a review, and I apologize if my explantions about Japan didn't satisfy you. In the beggining of the tour, we visited two banks and two ATMs to excahnge a large amount of your Euro into Japanese yen, which took nearly one hour in total. Therefore, I had to rush a little to conduct your tour, which resulted in my simplified explanations. Now I try to keep in mind that I have to be ready such unscheduled occurences. Thank you. Eriko

“ Friendly and flexible ”

This is our first trip to Japan starting in Tokyo. Eriko showed us the hightlights of Tokyo in 3,5 days. She was well prepared and learned us how to use the metro and train system. Due to the weather conditions we like to change the program and she adapted quickly. We like to thank Eriko for the first wonderful days in Japan.

ERIKO:

Hi Joop and Irma, Thank you very much for a good review. I think you enjoyed Tokyo to the fullest from traditional to modern. In a long journey, travelers can’t conduct their plans as scheduled, but even it could become a good memory. Hope you experience many fantastic things, please take a good care of yourself! I love the Netherland, I hope to see you one day!! Eriko

“ Fabulous way to see Tokyo! ”

We can't thank Eriko enough for spending the day with us and touring all over Tokyo. It was incredible. She really tailors the tour to your interests and is wonderful about explaining the culture and traditions. It was such a great way to see Tokyo and experience its many treasures. She even went over her time to show us to the Tokyo museum so that we could enjoy it after our tour. I highly recommend booking a tour with Eriko! Thanks again!

ERIKO:

Thank you very much, Leslie, for a great review. I myself enjoyed the tour with you yesterday, and it was a great please that I could share my knowledge about Japan. I wanted to explain more closely as to what Buddhist statues are so that you could enjoy them in Kyoto, but our tour time was limited. You are visiting the Golden Route of Japan, please enjoy the locations to your heart's content. Hope you make a good memory of Japan, and to see you one day again! Thank you so much, everyone :)

“ Lovely and patient guide to Nikko ”

I would highly recommend Eriko as a guide. She was very patient in answering endless questions prior to our trip, listened and planned accordingly to the sites we wanted to see, gave insightful information on things we saw, was always on hand to interpret for us, arranged and made sure we had plenty of time in between transportation links and breaks, and made our trip seamless. It is obvious she loves her country and wants to ensure that we left with a very favourable impression of Japan. Thank you Eriko!

ERIKO:

Hello Sophia, Thank you very much for a great review. It was enjoyable that I had guided you around Nikko and helped you meet your son there. You seemed to enjoy not only Nikko but a train ride as well. You are exactly one of my unforgettable clients. There are a lot places you haven’t visited yet. I hope you come to and explore Japan again. Thanks again for joining my Nikko tour. Take care! Eriko

“ Happy holiday in Japan . ERIKO GUIDE. ”

Thank you Eriko for a great 3 days it was a pleasure to have you as our guide in Toyko and Nikko hope to see you again of return to Japn . Cheers Graham Fuller.

ERIKO:

Hi Graham, Thank you very much for joining my tours for three consecutive days. I hope you could enjoy Japan in a relaxing way. Although it couldn’t be helped, the only one regretful thing was the fatal accident that happened on my way to your hotel. But I was very glad you enjoyed the snow in Nikko. Hope to see you again one day. Eriko Nomoto

“ 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.

ERIKO:

Hi Danny, Stanton and Dylan, Thank you very much for a great review. It was a great day for me! Guiding you was of course enjoyable, but comfortable conversations during the tour were also fun! You are a wonderful family. After guiding you, I started to want to travel with my sons again! Kyoto, Nara, and Himeji Castle are incredibly great locations to explore. Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan, and to see you some day! Take care! Eriko

Hi Ariane, Thank you very much for a review. I’m glad I spent a good time with your wonderful family, but I was sorry to take you to neither the Tokyo Tower nor the Governent Office. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Disney Land. Please give my best regards to your family. 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.

ERIKO:

Hi Carrie and your family, Thank you very much for a great review. I really enjoyed guiding you around the places you wanted to visit. At the same time, I heard a lot of things about Houston, which was very interesting and comfortable conversations. I’m sure that the experience will broad my knowledge and train my guiding skills. I appreciate it. I’m very excited to see you again. Thank you, Best, Eriko

“ Wonderful and thoughtful guide ”

We spent a wonderful day in Tokyo with Eriko. She contacted us prior to our departure from Australia to ask about the places we wanted to visit and suggested some more. Her itinerary was perfect, she helped us understand the Tokyo railway system and suggested a great sushi place for lunch. I highly recommend Eriko. She is a fabulous guide and a genuinely lovely and caring lady.

ERIKO:

Hi Tony and Danielle, Thank you very much for a great review! I really enjoyed guiding you around the places you wanted to visit. At the same time, I could learn about your culture from you, which surely improves my guiding skills and opens my eye to things I've never known. I appreciate everything from the bottom of my heart. I hope to see you again one day. Take care! Warm Regards, Eriko Nomoto

“ Tokyo Half Day Tour ”

We were very happy with Eriko in all respects. She arrived on time and was courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. We changed our itinerary at the last minute and she was able to accommodate our request without hesitation. we covered various sights in a short time. Eriko was also very helpful before the tour and after the tour with regards to some information and guidance.

“ Tokyo 4 hour tour with Eriko ”

My wife and I had an excellent tour with Eriko. We visited the Meiji Shrine and Akasura shopping and temple during the 4 hour tour. Eriko was the perfect guide, providing practical and historical information and getting us to the sites efficiently. She responded to all of our requests, and we had pleasant conversations on our subway trips. Her email communication with us to confirm details of the tour was immediate every time. We would highly recommend Eriko and this tour.

ERIKO:

Hi Jerry, thank you very much for a great review. I'm very glad that I received it. You and Lois are very much interested in Japanese history, so I was really exciteded to show you around Tokyo's two major locations, Meiji Jingu Shrine and Sensoji Temple. After the tour I felt more motivated to learn the images of Buddhist statues, and are reading a book now. I really spent an enjoyable time with you. I hope my guiding helped you to understand Japan. Thanks again! Please give my best regards to Lois.

“ Great full day tour with Eriko ”

Many thanks to our guide Eriko who took us on a full day tour in Tokyo - 1 adult, 1 x 15 year old, 1 x 12 year old and 1 x 11 year old. We were staying in an Air BnB house which was tucked away down tiny streets and Eriko kindly came to our house to pick us up to start the tour. This alone was very kind and appreciated. We visited Meiji Shrine and learned so much about the history & culture of Japan! We also saw the Imperial Palace, Asakusa and the Skytree. Loved the delicious lunch too! We took the learnings from Eriko and applied them to the rest of our tour - not only practically, catching buses & trains, but the information she gave us informed us culturally for the rest of our stay. She was so thrilled that the kids could speak a little Japanese & made them feel very special whe... read more

“ Friendly and informative ”

Eriko did a great job is showing my wife and I around Tokyo on our first day. It was our first day in Japan so it was comforting to have a local show us the transport system and cultural aspects. Eriko was considerate and patiently as my wife is pregnant and our pace was not too fast. :)

ERIKO:

Thank you very much, John, for a great review! I am very glad I guided you in Tokyo although it was a short time. I realize my customers have made me a good guide and, of course, you are one of them. I would be glad if you could come over Tokyo again with your two kids in the future. Please give my best regards to your wife, and I hope you will have a fine and healthy baby!! Take care!

Contacted Eriko for my sister, who just arrived in Nagoya, to help her find her way in the Japanese public transport, and visit cultural heritages, Eriko was very flexible in time, location and program and helpful. Felt very much at ease, and enjoyed the day ! will definitively recommend her !

“ Amazing 2 days with Eriko ”

Eriko was an incredible tour guide. We covered a lot of ground and Eriko was able to explain every place we visited along the way. She was thoughtful and was very patient and flexible even though our group kept getting separated from one another. She even booked us a traditional tea ceremony which was my favorite part. I was overall very impressed with her professionalism and knowledge about the country. I would 1000% book Eriko again if I'm ever back in Tokyo.

Dharshini!! Thank you very much for a great review. I also enjoyed the tour with your family and learned a lot of interesting traditions, which have broaden my world. You are also a backpacker.
