“ Kahoko - a 5-Star Guide ”

We arrived in Japan at 5am for the first time and wanted to experience Tokyo with a local who could show us around. Kahoko met us at our hotel and from that moment on, we felt that Kahoko was more than a guide but also someone we could trust, more like a friend. She showed us how to navigate the Tokyo Metro, the sacred places, the new and exciting places, as well as the traditional parts of Tokyo. Kahoko took us to a traditional Japanese lunch and my wife enjoyed sashimi (raw fish) for the very first time, and with Kahoko's expert guidance and knowledge made for the most enjoyable Japanese meal. Overall we thoroughly loved her and so will you! Kahoko is a 5-star guide!

KAHOKO:
It's just speechless. Thank you so much for the review. I had a great day myself with all of you on every kilo of 18k!! Your family's warm and gentle vibes really made me happy. I just hope your rest of trip safe,pleasant, and unforgettable. Aiden , Mr Prince, if you ever come to Japan as a teacher, please keep in mind that you have a friend in Tokyo. Thank you again and be a nice family forever !

“ A fantastic pit stop in Tokyo. ”

I was on a business trip to Japan and had a day spare to explore Tokyo. What better way than with a helping hand? Tour was as described and I very much had an enjoyable day and learnt a great deal with Kahoko. If you want to make the most of a short stay I highly recommend booking.

KAHOKO:
Thank you very much for the review ! I know you are such a busy business person . It's kind of you to have given me time for this. I had a great time with you practicing and learning authentic British English. I was also able to know up-to-date British news. You're going to Berlin with your husband ( or already ? ) ,right ? I hope you such a terrific trip and wish a little early merry Christmas!

“ 1 Day Tokyo Sightseeing ”

Kahoko speaks really good English and it's a bliss communicating with her. She is very prompt with her response and takes the trouble to plan the travel itinerary according to our intended sights to visit. My family and I had a wonderful time visiting Asakusa, taking the water boat to Hama Rikyu Garden, experiencing the Tea ceremony and sweet mochi and stopping Odaiba as our last visting site. I would definitely contact her again when I'm next visiting Tokyo again. Arigatou gozaimashita!

KAHOKO:
Thank you so much for the sweetest review ! I really had a great time with you all. I was wondering how the rest of your tour was like. You had a lot of fun, maybe ? There are still so many places to visit in Japan. I hope you come back to Japan soon. I am ready to give you some up-to-date information of Japan for your next trip. Please ask me anything , anytime. The cookies were sooo good ! Was sweet like you. Warmly, Kahoko

“ Wonderful Japanese cultural experience ”

My wife and I had such a wonderful time with Miss Kahoko. She's punctual in meeting us in our hotel elegantly dressed in nice kimono which set the tone for the cultural activity. Her house is very quaint and immaculately clean and tidy. She taught / help us into our respective kimonos before heading to a nice stroll in a nearby lovely Japanese garden. The tea ceremony was very solemn and relaxing to the senses. The kaiseki lunch which she cooked is really delicious, not to mention that the arrangement is very pleasing to the eyes. She even served us the most delicious grapes that we have ever tasted - the Tanenashi variety. Overall this tour is highly recommended for those who like to experience the real Japanese culture in a 4 hour span. By the way she even went out of her way to bring us to Ginza after our tour is concluded which is a big convenience for us. Overall an excellent experience second to none. Thanks a lot Miss Kahoko.

KAHOKO:
Thank you for the warmest review ! I had such a great time with two of you myself . It was as if I had welcomed some close and important friends to my place. You are kind, polite ,and so easy to be happy with. Your beloved wife is too charming ! Also your respectful attitude to other culture is what we need to follow. AS you come to Japan so often , please contact me anytime. I'll make further research about interesting places to visit or must-have food. Thank you again and take care. Kahoko
