Eriko took us on a fantastic tour to Nikko, a place she knows very well ; she is a very informative guide, and a delightful travel companion. We could have never enjoyed the place as we did without her, and we very warmly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for a great review, Enrica. It was a pleasure to have you and Alex in my Nikko tour, and I was very happy to see that you became interested in Nikko Toshogu Shrine. I also enjoyed the tour with you both, thank you so much for a wonderful memory!! Eriko

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Nikko with Eriko. She is a lovely, warm person and an excellent guide. There were 6 of us traveling together, and Eriko managed to accommodate all our interests and keep us together and on schedule. Our only concern was in not being warned of how difficult and confusing it is to purchase Shinkansen tickets. If it were possible for guides to purchase tickets in advance, that would be a significant improvement. Of course tour prices would need to be adjusted accordingly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for a helpful review! I can include the travelers’ train fares in my tour prices, but the number of travelers differs from group to group. Also, I have to add the commission to the tour price for some reasons. Travelers like reasonable tours, so I haven’t included their train fares in my tour prices. That would be a problem but thank you again for letting me know your idea. Eriko

This was the second tour I took with Eriko as my guide. Once again, she efficiently arranged all travel arrangements to ensure we had the most time for the tour. She is very knowledgeable on history, as well as the customs, which made our time very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour with Eriko!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your time and a great review. We walked a lot around Nikko and enjoyed the gorgeous Toshogu Shrine and the imperial villa in beautiful autumn foliage. Thank you for another wonderful day! Eriko

This was an amazing day out - Nikko is awesome. And Eriko is pretty awesome as well - she is so helpful with suggestions, and has a vast knowledge of the history and legends of this area. Her English communication is excellent, and I couldn't be happier with how things went. She made navigating Tokyo's transport system very easy, and even managed to find time to help me to shop for cold medication, in addition to the more usual tourist shopping sites. Highly recommended guide and tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sally, thank you very much for the great review for Tokyo and Nikko tour. I’m so glad to hear you produced many memories and learned a lot about Japan. You always listened to me, so I myself enjoyed being asked many questions. That was a really interesting guiding, which made me a better tour guide. I did some research on red bibs on foxes and a grave with a globe stone. I will share it with you soon. I would be very happy if I could see you and Martin one day. Best Regards, Eriko

Eriko was great. Very organized, well versed in the history and sites of our tour, and interested in us and our interests. She was fluent in English and explained everything in detail. We recommend her without reservation and would definitely use her if we visit Tokyo again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vickie, Thank you so much for a wonderful review! I remembered the tour with you, which was very fun! I am so glad if the tour becomes a good memory of your trip to Japan, and hope to see you again one day. Please give my best regards to your husband. Take care!
Eriko was perfect in every aspect. She did her best to fulfill all our dreams and did her best to make us extremely happy. She is friendly and knowledgeable and helpful in every aspect. She even bought us something to eat and drink so thanks Eriko for everything, you made us really happy. I do highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Hala and Sherine, Thank you so much for a great day with you and rating my tour. I was really glad I could see you enjoying beautiful autumn colors. Egypt is one of my countries I want to visit, so I hope to see you again some day! Take care and enjoy everything in Japan! Eriko

Eriko is an absolute sweet heart!!! My boys (8 and 9 years old) and I were with her for two days of our stay in Japan, and we just loved her. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and considerate. We could communicate well and she was really, really kind to us. She watched out for us always and I felt completely safe when I was with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ann! Thank you so much for rating. I hope you all have been good. We enjoyed rich nature in Nikko and Hakone, and I miss the great days with you and your good boys. I will be very happy if I can see you again one day, and please give my best regardsto your husband. Eriko

Eriko was very knowledgeable. She explained every details of the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE Toshogu Shrine. We enjoyed the Kegon Falls and Lake Chuzenji. She followed the schedule as stated. The best part about Eriko was she went beyond her duty. When our JR train was canceled, she assisted us and we did not have to worry about anything. She made us feel very comfortable. She was a great host. We highly recommend anyone to join Eriko's private tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi everyone, Thank you very much for a great review and the tour with you all. I was very happy I saw you enjoying everything during the tour. I hope to see you again some day, and message you when I come to New York! Thank you and stay healthy!!
