“ Engaging and Professional Even During Record Heat! ”

Kahoko was wonderful and I highly recommend her services. We will use her again without question. I was traveling with 4 teenagers and she easily modified our tour between the old and new, culture and shopping, all while educating us along the way. She was sweet, funny, forever smiling, and knowledgeable and her English skills were excellent. We learned to use the trains efficiently, not run afoul of Japanese customs, and enjoy very local meals. I have traveled to Japan extensively during my career and was still happy to see Japan through her eyes. An engaging personality that we all thoroughly enjoyed being around. Thank you Kahoko!


Thank you very much for a sweet review ! After an excursion to Hakone, you must have had a little relaxing time by yourselves. Even though our tour was under a sweltering condition , I had such a pleasant time whole through the tour thanks to your walm and cooperative attitude. Also I can tell you are a very fortunate father to have a pair of wonderful children . Seeing your casual interactions made me happy because I could see real mutual affection there. I hope you will enjoy your rest of tour safely and happily. Thank you again and take care !

“ Wonderful experience with Kahoko! Highly recommend! ”

My granddaughter and I have now returned to the US after a wonderful trip to Tokyo! We saw so much, learned so much, and had a totally wonderful adventure, and Kahoko was a major contributor to this wonderful experience for the two of us. Her willingness to share information about everyday life and Japanese culture as well as recommendations for activities and the best local logistics were incredibly helpful. And the sushi experience and tea ceremony at her home were highlights of our trip. Kahoko was a pleasure to be with in every way!


Thank you very much for your time and trouble again. I had such a great time with you ! You were totally open to our culture, food ,and people. I remember you were enjoying conversation with a Japanese man in a Metro station . I believe your open-minded attitude gives your relatives or friends a lot of good influence . Even to me ! I'd like to follow you myself when I become someone's grandmother , who is positive, tough and tolerant. I hope you come back to Tokyo again with other grandchildren as you have plenty. Thank you again and take care.

“ Excellent communication, very helpful and knowledgable ”

Kahoko is a lovely woman whose care for our well being was obvious. We were a group of 6 and she did a great job guiding us through the streets, the attractions and telling us about the history and culture which we came to Japan to learn. Communication with Kahoko prior to the trip was easy. She suggested daily itineraries and was happy to accommodate our suggestions. Kahoko's English is excellent and we communication was easy and pleasant.


Thank you for a kind review ! I had such a pleasant time with terrific couples. I was impressed with your relationship : caring and understanding each other. Also I could learn a lot about your culture . As they were all new for me, it was very interesting to listen to various aspects of them from different people. I just hope your rest of days in Japan safe, happy, and memorable. Thank you again, and take care !

“ Wonderful tour ”

We had seen the highlights of Tokyo on a prior tour so we asked Kahoko to provide us a more authentic, off the beaten track experience and that is exactly what she did! Wonderful little restaurants, peaceful parks, an amazing graveyard, an incredible museum, a great open market and the shimbbashi crossing experience we had such an amazing day. She also helped us plan out itineraries for two days on our own. It was a pleasure planning the tour in advance by email, Kahoko had great ideas and did an amazing amount of research for us, she is a wonderful communicator. We feel so lucky that Kahoko was our guide, you will too!


Thank you very much for a sweet and encouraging review ! It was such a pleasant tour because you were all getting along and caring for each others . The tour was full of laughter. I was happy enough just seeing you. Happy people have a power to make others. So I simply enjoyed every moment with you ! Please come back to Tokyo some day soon. i hope you stay happy and healthy. Thank you again and take care !
