Our group of four were treated to a wonderful day in Tokyo with Eriko. Eriko has great English skills and her genuine interest in the city really made our day. We will be back next year with a bigger group and we will definitely book Erico. Thank you so much Erico you were awesome.

“ 40th Reunion with ERIKO as our guide ”

ERIKO made our 1 day Tokyo tour THE highlight of our Japan trip. She planned out the day efficiently with the sites we wanted to see, using different modes of transportation, as well as added her own touches to make it a special day. We were meeting 2 Japanese friends, that we haven't seen for 40 years.... She communicated well with all of us, and was an active part of the conversation and activities of the day. She had great visual aids. And selected a perfect lunch venue to eat Japanese pancake. The only way to describe our day was WONDERFUL!! We would definitely recommend ERIKO. AND we would definitely hire her again if we get back to Tokyo. The Morton's from Nebraska, USA

“ Knowledgable and Friendly Guide ”

We booked Eriko for a couple of tours whilst in Tokyo and found it to be one of the best decisions we made. Not only very knowledgeable providing interesting information on the places visited but also a very friendly lady who listens to what the client wishes out of the chosen tour. We highly recommend Eriko to anyone looking for a competent guide who speaks good English. Book ahead to ensure you can acquire Eriko's Tour Guide Services. Thank you Eriko for our time together in Tokyo.
