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.

“ Amazing Kyoto experience ”

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.

“ Beautiful evening tour ”

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!

“ Trip was smooth ”

I was pleased with the day tour to Hiroshima with Eric. I traveled with my 6-year old daughter, and I was a bit anxious about the trip. Eric was kind, considerate, and pretty flexible with re: our pace, interests, and (ice-cream) stops etc. On our way back, my credit cards did not work on the (shinkansen) ticket machines, and Eric paid for our tickets and asked us to pay it back when we reached an ATM (that did take our cards). I would definitely seek him out for future day tours if/when I travel to Japan again.
