Hallow ! This is Eric Tanaka.

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.

I had asked Eric to create an itinerary for two days for my family of six. My request was to visit Hiroshima, Nara, Osaka, and Kobe from Kyoto from where we were staying. We ended up visiting Hiroshima and Miyajima on day 1. We used taxis and trains to get to our destinations thru Eric's guidance. We also used a ferrry to get to Miyajima from Hiroshima. We came across some deer along the way to the itsukushima shrine and Torii Gate. Torii Gate was under repair so it wasn't the best time to get some great photos. The scenery there was still worth visiting. We ferried back to Hiroshima and took a train and taxi to see Peace Memorial Park.

Eric was very helpful at exploring options that our kids would like and customizing a day tour just for us. It was an action packed day that was very well organized and all went very smoothly. I would recommend Eric to any family looking for a great day of sightseeing.
Mr Mark and your family Thank you for your comments and I enjoyed the tour with your mice family today Please come to Kyoto or Osaka again Eric Tanaka
Sir Eric was the nicest guide we have encountered. He catered our needs for our tour without any complaints and adjusted to us accordingly. I highly recommend Sir Eric to other tourists. And we are very satisfied with the performance he shared with us. :)
Hi Mr Kevin n your family Thank you for your comments Please come again Kyoto Eric Tanaka
Our family of 5 people was only scheduled to be in Kyoto for 2 days when we booked our tour with Eric. Eric took us to 4 areas in one full day. He was accommodating, patient, and thorough, customizing an entire tour of the city based on our interests, requests, and preferences. He even went to eat dinner with us at the end of the tour. Thanks to him we were able to experience the hidden and authentic spots of the city--places we could have never enjoyed if we didn't have a native Japanese local with us. Eric can explain cultural quirks and differences to foreign visitors. Not only that, his personality is wonderful, and he is sincere, funny, patient, and kind.
Ms Kim I am very happy to have your comments for the tour June 11 See you next time ! Eric Tanaka
Eric was a fantastic guide. Being from the city, he was both knowledgeable about the sites in Kyoto and extremely kind as well. He helped us schedule our day and provided us with recommendations for restaurants and other activities for the rest of our time in Kyoto. Additionally, he took our booking one day in advance after our other cancelled. Highly recommend.
Hi Mr James Thank you for your mail and I am happy to hear from you that you enjoyed Kyoto Please come to Kyoto again. Stop I felt all of you are nice guy and very tuff. Eric Tanaka
