“ Excellent tour in Tokyo with Kohoko ”

We booked a 1-day tour and had a fantastic experience with Kahoko. Kahoko is not only very friendly and professional, she also patiently answered all our questions. She gave us all the important information about Tokyo and the surrounding neighborhoods with a lot of humor and charm. Without Kahoko we would never have been able to visit all the sights in this short time. She also gave us a lot of tips, e.g. about a vegetarian restaurant because my husband is a vegetarian and this can be quite a challenge in Tokyo. We highly recommend Kahoko to everybody without any hesitation. Many thanks Kahoko for this great day!


Thank you for the sweet review! I had such a great time with a young and terrific couple. Also I was able to learn so many things from you ; you live in the US now but have an objective viewpoint because your home country is Germany. It was very interesting. If you have chance to come to Tokyo, please let me know. I do hope you stay fit and happy. Thank you again and take care!

“ Great day. Kahoko was a lovely lady lots of knowledge of traditional Japan ”

Kahoko showed us the real Tokyo. The traditions and way of life of old and new Tokyo. She was a lovely lady and guided us at the pace that suited us. We enjoyed the day very much and saw much more than we would have on our own.


Thank you for the kind review! I had a good time with you during the tour. I wonder how your time in Disneyland was like today. The weather was better than expected, good for you! I hope you will enjoy the cruise trip in Japan as well. Thank you again,and take care!

“ A wonderful introduction to Tokyo ”

My wife and I spent a day and a half with Kahoko upon our arrival in Tokyo. She is a wonderful tour guide with excellent English skills and our understanding and appreciation of Tokyo is much deeper than it would have been if we had merely explored on our own. She customized our tours based upon our areas of interest and made adjustments as needed due to changing weather. We were privileged to visit Tokyo during Golden Week and the ascension of the new emperor, which made the trip even more special. She also gave us valuable tips on how to spend our remaining days in Tokyo to best advantage. One example of what makes Kahoko a top notch guide - when she learned we were looking for a very specific Pokemon souvenir for our son she took us into a huge electronics and game store in the A... read more


Thank you for the sweet review! I had such a wonderful time with two of you! I just enjoyed every conversation we made during 2 days. As new grandparents or parents of three children, we had lots of things to talk about. I hope you spent relaxing and pleasant time after the busy and tough tours with me. We really walked a lot, good 6~7 miles consecutively. Sorry! Still, we should stay fit to enjoy our prime time of lives for the sake of our families and of course, for ourselves. If you feel need of some exercise, please come back to Tokyo! Thank you again and take care!

“ Best experience ever ”

My wife and I decided to go to Japan for our honeymoon and we found Kahoko on the triple lights website. She was the 1st person to respond to our inquiry about touring Tokyo and was extremely professional and helpful the entire trip. We had some last minute adjustments to our itinerary and Kahoko planned around these accordingly. She is bright and charming, she helped make our trip the best of our lives.


Thank you very much for a quick and kind review. You're making such a terrific couple! It was a very pleasant evening last night. I just enjoyed taking with you having a nice dinner. For today,to make your precious time better, I will do my best .

She is a very considerate lady. She was very punctual and furnished me with all the information I needed for the rest of my stay in Japan.


Thank you for the kind review! You are the most gentlemanlike gentleman I have ever met. I believe your politeness and kindness will charm every Japanese you will meet. I just hope you a safe and wonderful stay in Japan! Take care.
