kyoto highlights

It was a wonderful experience in Kyoto with Eric. He gave us abundant info. and little gems everywhere we went. He took care of our group, always looking behind to see if we were within an eye distance. He helped us with ins/outs of metro system there. I would highly recommend Eric if you ever visit Kyoto.

The Best Tour Ever!!

I visited Kyoto with my family on 19th December for 3 days and on the first day we had a full tour with Tanaka San. He was very informative with his detailed documents of Japanese history in Kyoto. Tanaka san is very kind and you can pretty much have a conversation with him about anything. Next time when I visit Kyoto I hope to meet him in person again. If you are coming to Kyoto and needed a tour guide then Tanaka san is your go to guide. I will share a personal story, during the tour my foot was hurting because of my shoe was squeezing my toes. Tanaka took me shopping at a local store and still we managed to have time to see the all the itinerary spots. Highly recommended!! Okada Khorn

A day with Eric Tanaka

Eric is a very friendly, nice and knowledgeable guide who speaks simple English! He shared a lot of history abt Kyoto. He even printed out and shared handouts containing information about Kyoto. He brought us to a popular omu rice eatery for lunch. Eric constantly looked for seats for us on the bus and train. He brought us to the famous Arashiyama bamboo grove, Kinkaku-ji, Fushimi Inari Shrine and Tofukuji Temple. Overall it was an amazing experience with guide Eric!

This tour is the one and only for you. Kyoto was an ancient capital of Japan for over 1200 years. Embedded in centuries of history and culture, it offers too much to see in one visit. Here the ancient world is integrated with the modern. The phenomenal concentration of history and legend coexists with an equally phenomenal concentration of people busily going about their everyday life. Please tell me your interest, and I will make an itinerary exclusively for you!
