We've booked 2 half-day with Kahoko. As this was our 2nd trip to Tokyo, we were not looking for major tourist sights (which we already saw during our first trip) but for some special places or tours which we found with Kahoko. Kahoko is great companion, providing timely & comprehensive explanations. She has fairly good English so we didn't have any issue communicating with her. First, we've hiked Mt. Takao which was relatively short, moderate hike up small mountain (~600 meter and apprx. 1/3 of the way is served by cable car/lift). Mt. Takao tour is well organized and includes Cable car ride, strolling through monastery/shrine on the way up, going through forest/mountain bridge/lift on the way down and nice lunch in Soba restaurant. Would recommend it to anyone looking to do some exercising in the nice place. Especially though, we've enjoyed tour at Kahoko's own home ("Cultural Experience at Kahoko's home") - this was on another day of course. The day was our anniversary so we had high expectations and it didn't disappoint! The tour includes trying out kimono (we've chosen to upgrade to formal Kimono), going to lovely garden nearby wearing kimono, tea ceremony plus homemade lunch. All aspects of the experience is well thought and prepared. Kahoko proved to be wonderful host and overall experience was great.
Wow, she's great. I love here, my family loves her. She is a good guide..she speaks english fluently..thank you ms kahoko for the experience especially the authentic japanese restaurant..
We had a fantastic time with Kahoko. Well paced days,great knowledge of the areas visited and easy to converse with. It was like visiting with an old friend. Highly recommended.
Kahoko san was very nice and professional guide with whom I spent six hours viewing Tokyo. She planned our route well knowing my wishes but also taking into an account the city constraints like traffic and rush hour. We discussed many aspects of Japan during the tour and she shared me interesting things of Japanise way of living and the society overall. I was very satisfied of the tour and can highly recommend Kahoko as a guide to share highlights of the wonderful city of Tokyo and Japan in general.
Our Tokyo trip was well worth it thanks to Kahoko. We were able to visit and see everything we planned. It was kind of hectic but everything fell into place (even the weather) :) Kahoko was kind enough to accomodate all our requests. Will definitely book Kahoko again on our next family trip to Japan.
We had a wonderful first day in Tokyo with Kahoko. She was friendly, organized and flexible when we made some adjustments to our very ambitious plan for the day. She was great with our children and even helped us by making a reservation for my husband's birthday dinner. I'm not sure what we would have done for his birthday without her help. She made what could have been a stressful first day in town easy and fun.
