“ Half day tour in Tokyo ”

We had a wonderful day with Kahoko. She understood our needs and was very flexible throughout the day. We would never have been able to navigate the subway system without her guidance. She was very kind and knowledgeable and made our first day in Tokyo most memorable . Thankyou. Esther

“ Kahoko - great Tokyo tour ”

Our Tokyo Day Tour with Kahoko was wonderful. We had a fun time touring the Tsujiki Market and Asakusa. Kahoko speaks fluent English. She was courteous and accommodation. Every item we requested were answered and happened. She was very capable and went out of her way to help us. If we come back to visit Tokyo again, we would not hesitate to have Kahoko as our Guide.

“ Our wonderful time with Kahoko ”

We had two half days with Kahoolawe. As well as showing us around Tokyo she was wonderfully helpful with all our queries. She assisted us to buy Shinkansen tickets and to validate JR passes. Nothing was too much trouble for her. We enjoyed her company and highly recommend her.

“ Definitely a memorable experience ”

We will always look back to this wonderful experience. We would recommend her to our friends and colleagues who wish to experience Japanese culture and hospitality. Upon finding out that I have a physical disability, she and her husband even went the extra mile to assist me.
