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.

“ Fascinating Nikko with Rieko ”

Rieko san was very responsive when I contacted her. She went out of her way to help me canvas and book a van for our tour. She was punctual and speaks good English. We told her that we are interested to see autumn foliage and she brought us to a beautiful place called Ryuzu Falls. She also brought us to a hotel that served great curry for lunch. Had a fun productive day with Rieko san.


Esther san Thank you for your warm words. We were very lucky seeing Ryugu fall although it rained in other places. I am glad you liked it. We had a good time with a pretty driver, Luna san. I would be very happy if you come back to Japan with your husband soon. Please send Grace san my best regards. Rieko

“ Outstanding Guide ”

We spent a wonderful day with Rieko showing us around Tokyo. She knows the history of important sights as well as has insights into the culture. We needed some help in getting our train tickets. She revised our itinerary and took us right to a train station and helped us get our tickets. Towards the end of the, my wife and daughter wanted to do some shopping. She made helpful suggestions and took us to some interesting shops. I really appreciated her flexibility and attention to our particular needs. I definitely recommend her!


Dear Ben san Thank you so much for your prompt and warm review! I’m so glad that Cynthia and Laurie ( sorry I may make a mistake in spelling) could find their favorite kimonos. It was my pleasure helping you. Tomorrow you will leave for Kyoto and Hiroshima, I remember. Please enjoy the beautiful sceneries and different food and culture. Japan is a small country but we have different culture from place to place. Have a nice trip and please come back soon. I miss you, the warm and happy family. Regards, Rieko

“ A day before typhoon Hagibis. ”

Rieko met us at our hotel in Tokyo on time. The tour started from Rieko helping us to book a different hotel as our cruise was delayed and our hotel did not have availability. Without her we would not know how to find a hotel in the area. When we started planning our visit to Japan we had some ideas of places that we wanted to see in Tokyo. Rieko was very attentive and creative in implementing them into the schedule. We visited all the places we planned with her in advance. Rieko gave us tons of information, answered all questions we had, showed lots of points of interest. We had a wonderful day. As we had to survive the typhoon, she provided us with the local information such as, how to use the metro, where to find food. Afterwards, she called the cruise company for us and told us tha... read more


Dear Irene san Uradimir san Thank you for your great great review. You must have had a hard time during the typhoon. But thank you for staying in Tokyo for my tour. I had an enjoyable time with you talking a lot. I would like to see you again if you come back to Japan to cover your destinations you could not visit this time. Many thanks again and see you soon.

“ Awesome tofu making experience ”

My family really enjoyed the tour. We are grateful Reiko San was able to help with our dietary requirements. We had an awesome time learning to make tofu. The tofu masters were very lovely, kind and humble people. Highly recommended.


Sussan san, Thank you for your warm words. I am really glad you liked my tour. I had a very good time with you and your lovely and very polite children. I will tell the tofu masters that you really liked the program. Please try making tofu at home and if you have some questions about making tofu, do not hesitate to ask us. We are always at your service. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and come back again soon.
