Konnichiwa I’m Eriko. I'm passionate about showing people around Tokyo that I call home. Tokyo is truly a city of many faces and has something for everyone from ancient temples, high-tech culture, to quirky themed restaurants.
My great grandfather was a kimono maker in the early 1900's, and I am honored to wear the kimonos that he created. Growing up in a tiny wooden house which used to be a great grandfather's studio in an old town of Tokyo, I came to appreciate Japanese culture. And I'm privilege to share that with many visitors today.
I believe there is no one-size-fits-all travel plan and your itinerary should be as unique as you are. It's rewarding to be a small part of someone's journey broadening their horizons and writing their own story. We embrace the differences and find more things in common. I'm looking forward to being your guide and becoming your first Japanese friend!
