“ Kahoko - Not Just a Tour Guide ”

Traveling alone can be difficult and, well, lonely. Today, I was blessed with Kahoko for a tour guide because she wasn't just a tour guide, but a companion for the day! We visited two places that I wanted to go: the Sensoji Buddhist Temple and the Meiji Jingu Shrine. We also fit in a wonderful traditional Kiseki meal. I had asked to stop for a meal and asked her to pick something traditional and this lunch was delightful. Kahoko was full of knowledge on this histories of these places and as we talked and she learned about my likes, she suggested little side trips so that I could see different things I didn't know existed. She also explained how to better use the subway system and suggested places for me to go later in my trip. I would recommend any traveler, especially one travelling alone, to hire Kahoko.

“ Wonderful guide and friend ”

My family had a wonderful time touring around Tokyo with Kahoko! She was friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. We were able to get a very good sense of daily life in Japan which is what we wanted to experience. It felt like having a good friend take us around Tokyo. We would definitely use her again if we come back to Japan. Thanks for a fantastic experience!

“ Fun Day in Tokyo! ”

We had a great full-day tour with Kahoko. She was flexible, kind, and easy to work with. We appreciated her knowledge of the area, history of Tokyo, and patience with our toddler. She was very helpful with navigating the public transportation system and even bought our son a treat. We would highly recommend Kahoko as a guide. Thank you for a great experience of Japanese hospitality!

KAHOKO:
Thank you for a nice review ! I was wondering how the rest of your stay was going. i remembered the days of my own child-rearing age during the tour: those happy and tough days. I can tell it is worth challenging and fruitful. Go for that and enjoy !
