“ Sawara and Narita ”

What a wonderful experience ! Kahoko was delightful and informative. We had a special time we will never forget.


Thank you for the kind review. I really appreciate your tolerance and cooperation under that cold and rainy day. I had such a great time with you! I would like to guide on a warm sunny day some day. Thank you again and take care!

“ A great guide for my city tour in Tokyo ”

Hakoho showed me the main neighborhoods in Tokyo, including shopping areas, she is very knowledgable, we had a great time strolling around Tokyo, I loved that she knew exactly where to take the best pictures in the main hallmarks in Tokyo!


Thank you very much for the kind review! I enjoyed every moment with a beautiful lady from Peru. As you are the first Peruan for me and so global person, I was able to learn so many things from you! Thank you again and stay beautiful!

“ Visiting the Snow Monkeys ”

Having Kahoko as a guide when visiting Toyko was the best decision that we made. She made our time in Toyko fun and made it very easy to get around. Kahoko was full of knowledge and visiting the Snow Monkeys was one of our highlights. Thank you Kahoko for making out trip enjoyable and stress-free. Jamie and Deb Ruf


Thank you for a kind review! I was very relieved to find some snow and monkeys on the day there. I was also impressed with your picture taking technique. That snow throwing one was really lively and interesting. Please come back to Japan again some day soon, Thank you again and take care!

“ Don’t look further- just book Kahoko if you can!!!???????? ”

Kahoko is absolutely lovely to be with, and an incredibly comfortable companion for all ages. She works so hard to accommodate and really knows her stuff. We have had guides worldwide and I can honestly say she’s tops. A delight!!! She will move fast or be incredibly patient, is very attune to her clients’ desires. Get her if you can. Thank you Kahoko!


Thank you for the quickest and sweetest review! I am speechless. As you're such a lively and charming family,I just enjoyed every moment with you even though the places were so crowded and troublesome, sometimes. I appreciate your cooperation and tolerance. I hope we see you sooner.

“ Tokyo HIghlights in a Day ”

Kahoko truly represented the best of Japanese hospitality. She welcomed us warmly in our hotel lobby and we were instantly put at ease when we met her. She speaks eloquently and is very knowledgeable. We enjoyed our day with her and we are very thankful to her for introducing us to Tokyo on our first full day there. We 100% recommend Kahoko over and over. You can book Kahoko with complete confidence that she will not only meet but will exceed your expectations!!! Thanks Kahoko.


Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! Your kind words really encouraged me and gave great motivation for the job. I had such a great day with three of you . Just seeing you caring each other made me warm . There lots of more to see in JAPAN, so please come back someday soon. Until then, please stay happy and fit. Thank you!
