About

Hallow ! This is Eric Tanaka.
I was born in Kyoto, and I have been living in Kyoto.
I am sure that Kyoto is one of the best city for sightseeing and living.
I wish if I can introduce some nice places for you by walking around city streets.
Also, in suburbs, there are a lot of nice sightseeing places such as Bamboo forest, Monkey park, Fushimi shrine, Zen practice temples and so on.
Let's enjoy Kyoto town and Kyoto food.with me.

“ Fantastic Specialized Tour ”

We contacted Eric at the very last minute to do a very abbreviated tour. He took us exactly where we wanted to go and helped us meet our timing constraints. We had a fantastic time. We enjoyed the information he shared with us about the places we went to see.

ERIC:

Ms Kristine Thank you for your comments Please enjoy Japan another couple of days Eric Tanaka

“ GION and Kyoto ”

Good guide but was disappointed on the transport pick up and drop off. We asked Eric to pick us up and drop off at hotel. Demanded money for a cab there and back and then asked for additional money to cover. Very unprofessional.

ERIC:

Sorry for causing you to pay extra money I will pay attention about this matter. EricTanaka

“ Fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly - we had a fantastic experience! ”

Eric was fantastic. From the moment we booked he was super friendly, communicated effectively and made our life super easy. On the tour itself he was very flexible to make sure we covered everything we wanted to, but also added his unique perspective on the beautiful sites of Kyoto. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend anyone to approach him!

ERIC:

“ This tour was the high point of our trip to Japan ”

At the last minute we decided we needed a tour of Kyoto to really get a feel of the city. Eric was great at immediately responding to my inquiry, and agreed at our meeting time and place, which was only a few hours out. His personality is very upbeat and cheerful and his enthusiasm for the job and the sights really shines through. He was great answering all of our questions and showing us off the path spots of interest. At the end of our tour, he not only took the taxi to the train station with us, but helped purchase our train tickets and literally put us on the correct train to make sure there were no mistakes since it were a little nervous. He even changed our train to one that would be more efficient than what we had originally planned. I would highly recommend Eric as a fantastic guid... read more
