Hi, I am Rieko, you can call me Ricky. I am a National licensed English speaking tour guide.
I was born in Yokohama, the neighboring city of Tokyo, and have lived there for a long time. So, I know a lot about Tokyo and the surrounding cities, such as Yokohama, Kamakura, Hakone, and Nikko.
My favorite things to do are traveling and talking with people. I have traveled more than 30 countries in the world and talked with a lot of people worldwide. And it is fun to host people from all over the world.
Cooking and eating are also one of my favorite things to do. Japan has a unique and a great food culture, and it is a great pleasure if I can introduce you various kinds of food you have never eaten before, and help you enjoy your stay in Japan.
I have a lot of recommended destinations, yet flexible about them. I can make your own plan according to your requests. Let's enjoy a tour in Japan with me!
I am really looking forward to meeting you!
See you soon.

Saw the best of Kamakura and Yokohama thanks to good planning by Reiko. Invaluable as a transportation escort and most informative about the history of the sights we visited. Quite personable and energetic; you may have to declare "uncle" when you are ready to slow down or stop. Most delightful!
