“ Private guided tour in Anime, Manga, Pokemon and maids cafe world ”

We had a request (since I was traveling with my 18 year old son) to see the Manga and Anime world, the Pokemon Center and go to a Maids Cafee. Kuniko was all the time whilst planning answering quickly back and doing everything to plan for our wish list. She took us to the best places and was SO kind and knew her way around in Tokyo and the metro. Thank you for a really nice guided tour Kuniko! Christian & Charlotte, Denmark


Dear Christian & Charlotte, Thank you so much for your very kind review, you are so generous! I was so happy accompany you for half day in Tokyo. It’s so nice you like Japan. Please come to Tokyo again and meet me. I’m looking forward to meeting you again! Best regards Kuniko Takemoto

“ A wonderful tour! ”

I booked the tour with Kuniko for my son and his girlfriend on the occasion of his marriage proposal to her. Most importantly, Kuniko understood it was a secret and was enthusiastic about being a part of the proposal. She met them as planned and helped them to get the most out of their Hakone Free Passes. She was very knowledgeable about the area and the kids said they learned a lot. She also helped them sort out an issue with the hotel and purchase return seats on the romancecar. Oh...she said yes!


Dear Paula, Congratulations!! I was more than happy that I was a part of the very special tour. They are so nice couple. Thank you for the excellent review and having me a part of the event. Best wishes to the happy couple!! Kuniko Takemoto

“ Ueno, Yanaka, Asakusa ”

The day spent with Kuniko walking the back alleys and old districts of Tokyo was a wonderful experience, very informative and educative, culturally and historically. We would certainly recommend her walking tours to those who want to explore and discover certain parts of Tokyo where the big bus tours do not go. We definitely will use the efficient services of Triplelights again in the near future.


Dear Soan, Thank you for spending one day with me, and also writing a nice review. I’m very happy that you like the tour. You and your family are so nice and very kind to me. Please enjoy your travel and come again to Tokyo area! Thank you again Soan! Best regards, Kuniko
