We were two couples and booked two days and two half days with Kahoko. We explained to her what were our interests ,exchanging e mails before our trip . Everything went perfectly welll! Hakoko is an agreable person, professional, energetic, efficient and very friendly.Her english is good. Not a minute was lost with her. She is a captivating person and contributed positively for a good impression of Tokyo.
Kahoko took the time to answer all of our questions and customized the tour around what we wanted to see. She was the nicest guide and made sure my wife and I were comfortable at every step. Would use Kahoko again when I come back to Tokyo!
Kahoko expertly guided me through the labyrinth of Tokyo’s metro system for our day’s excursion to Mt. Takao. First by subway, then train, then cable car and finally we used our own two feet walking on a very civilized paved path to reach our destination. Even though our weather was picture perfect with blue skies and puffy white clouds, Mt. Fuji eluded us from the summit of Mt. Takao. That said, the sheer serenity of this location and the exquisite views make this a very worthwhile tour. Kahoko is a fantastic guide with knowledge of Tokyo and all things Japanese from food to art to architecture to history and culture. So in addition to a great hike, I learned much about Japanese culture – past and present. Thanks Kahoko for a fantastic and fulfilling day!
Kahoko greeted us with a warm welcome and had a wonderful day planned out for us beginning to end with walking to the Kabuki theater and fish market, and seeing temples and shrines along the way and boat ride to another city, sharing history past and current concerns, sampling new meals, giving guidance to gift buying ideas and ending with coffee together. This is the best way to see a city especially with a different language. Definitely would invite Kahoko to lead us again.
Kahoko was terrific. Her English is very good. Her informative commentary really added to or enjoyment of all of the sights. She easily adapted to our preferences and went well beyond her commitment in order to accompany us to the location we wanted to visit after our half day tour to make sure that we found it. I would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo.
I love how patient, gracious and knowledgeable Kahoko is when it pertains to Japan culture, food, and family. We traveled with 4 boys aged 12, 9, 7, 2 and she was very helpful in managing the tour with them. My wife likes Kahoko and we wish we have more time to spend with her. She speaks English very well and very approachable. Highly recommended!
