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.

We only had one full day in Kyoto and decided the best thing for our party of 9 was to arrange a private tour. We had a terrific day with Eric. He met us at our hotel and took us on a day trip covering the highlights of Kyoto. We were able to personalise the tour as one family had been to Kyoto before. Eric was patient, happy and knowledgeable and kept the 5 teenagers entertained . Eric arranged public transport passes which allowed us to travel easily by train and bus to visit the various sites. Our tour lasted 7 hours. I would highly recommend Eric to friends or others considering a private tour. I thought the cost of the day per person was very reasonable.
Ms Jullian Thank you for your comments for my guide tour I am very happy to hear from you that you had a good time in Kyoto I wish if you will enjoy Kanazawa Hakuba and Tokyo Eric Tanaka
Very professional! Thanks for a great Day!
Our first time in Kyoto and we fell in love with the city. Eric was an amazing tour guide, he picked us up and made sure we got the right train back to Tokyo. Excellent customer service, I would highly recommend him...he really knows Kyoto well. A tour we will never forget. Thank you Eric for a great experience in Kyoto.
Eric was a great guide! We did an evening tour, and he took us to several beautiful spots in Kyoto. We got some fantastic pictures, and Eric was happy to take photos of our group. At times we had difficulty understanding (we are native English speakers), but Eric was enthusiastic and answered all our questions. I appreciated that the route he took us on was very well-planned and scenic--it felt like we were among the local population. Thank you, Eric!
Eric showed us Kyoto as his home town. He knows his way around and adds lots of color. Enjoyed our time with him
