Hi, I'm Rika.
Welcome to Tokyo, the vibrant and enchanting capital of Japan!
I've lived in Australia for about 3 years, and I'm a NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) accredited Professional Level English to Japanese Translator.
My passion for exploring the world, indulging in retail therapy, and savoring culinary delights has led me to countless corners of the globe, and I'm excited to share my love for these experiences with you, here in Tokyo.
I'm available only during the daytime on weekdays.
It was my first trip ever to Tokyo, even to Japan, and I thought I’d book a personal tour with Rika to introduce me to some of the highlights of this amazing city. Rika is a wonderful person and very accommodating to your specific requests. She was super quick to answer to my inquiry and then suggested an itinerary that was a great balance between what I wanted to see and some of her own suggestions. On the day of the tour, she met me at the agreed time in the lobby of my hotel and we took off from there. She introduced me to great food, wonderful sights and great shopping. She was always flexible and we made changes to the itinerary as new ideas came up. Most of all, she perfectly helped me to navigate the sometimes quite complex system of Tokyo public transport. All in all, I had a great 5 hours with Rika roaming around Tokyo and I learned a lot. If you are looking for a personalised introduction to Tokyo, I can only highly recommend Rika!
I am absolutely delighted to read your glowing review of the tour! Thank you for choosing to spend your time with me and for taking the time to share your experience. I had a fantastic afternoon showing you around this exciting city, and our spontaneous stop at a dog cafe was a highlight for me! If you ever decide to return to Tokyo, I would be thrilled to welcome you back for another private tour.
