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.

Mel san, Thank you so much for your great review! And I am very glad you liked my tour. I had a very good time with such a good family like you and I hope I can see you again in Tokyo soon. Please give my best regards to Asia san and Corey san.
Was able to experience an epic memorable day in Kamakura Japan from Tokyo with friendly, profesional, well spoken Reiko! I not only gathered so much knowledge, Japanese culture, navigation of the transit system, but also a person who will remain a handprint on my life travel experiences. She was informative, used visuals, responded to any questions and provided me with an incredible day.
Margery san, Thank you very much for your warm words. I myself had a very good time with you on a very fine day! I love Kamakura and am glad you have a very good memory of Kamakura. It was a happy time for me to have been with you and shared a lot of stories. Have a nice time on the last day in Japan and I am looking forward to seeing you again soon. Take care.
