“ Wonderful experience with Kahoko! Highly recommend! ”

My granddaughter and I have now returned to the US after a wonderful trip to Tokyo! We saw so much, learned so much, and had a totally wonderful adventure, and Kahoko was a major contributor to this wonderful experience for the two of us. Her willingness to share information about everyday life and Japanese culture as well as recommendations for activities and the best local logistics were incredibly helpful. And the sushi experience and tea ceremony at her home were highlights of our trip. Kahoko was a pleasure to be with in every way!

“ Excellent communication, very helpful and knowledgable ”

Kahoko is a lovely woman whose care for our well being was obvious. We were a group of 6 and she did a great job guiding us through the streets, the attractions and telling us about the history and culture which we came to Japan to learn. Communication with Kahoko prior to the trip was easy. She suggested daily itineraries and was happy to accommodate our suggestions. Kahoko's English is excellent and we communication was easy and pleasant.

“ Wonderful tour ”

We had seen the highlights of Tokyo on a prior tour so we asked Kahoko to provide us a more authentic, off the beaten track experience and that is exactly what she did! Wonderful little restaurants, peaceful parks, an amazing graveyard, an incredible museum, a great open market and the shimbbashi crossing experience we had such an amazing day. She also helped us plan out itineraries for two days on our own. It was a pleasure planning the tour in advance by email, Kahoko had great ideas and did an amazing amount of research for us, she is a wonderful communicator. We feel so lucky that Kahoko was our guide, you will too!
