“ Walking tour of the Port of Yokohama ”

From our first contact Kaneo was professional and easy to work with. We were a group of 6 on our tour. One of the things he recommended we do was a stop at a convenience store for a snack. He assisted us in purchasing "rice balls" (really a triangle) and beverage. We walked to a beautiful area overlooking the water and enjoyed the view and our snack. Several in our group were hesitant about eating the rice balls, but all were pleasantly surprised and glad they had gone along with the group. In my research I found that Yokohama is the sister city to San Diego, CA, USA, where we had lived for 17 years. They each have special statue commemorating this. Kaneo located it and made sure we saw it as we returned to our cruise ship thru the beautiful park it was in. He was quick to suggest addition... read more

Kaneo:

Thank you for your long and precise review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed my guide. Yokohama is my home town, but I learned much about it when I prepared for your trip. You are really interested in lots about Yokohama, including historical ones, which stimulated me to explore Yokohama more. Thanks again. Kaneo

“ Wonderful Experience ”

A great experience with Kaneo—He was very proactive up to the trip with many emails and consideration for us for the tour plan (rain and sun plan)—He was extremely flexible and willing to change to last minute location and plan —with two small kids it was not easy walking around. We learned much from Kaneo about history and culture and having a personal touch added a special perspective for Tokyo, something we wouldn’t otherwise have. Thank you Kaneo for a wonderful time.

Kaneo:

Dear Han Thank you for your warm review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed our Tokyo tour in spite of the sudden weather change. Your family are so good and friendly that even rain waited until you enjoyed outside walking tour. Kaneo

“ Money Well Spent ”

My husband, two friends and I had a 12 hour layover at Narita and hired Kaneo as our guide to Tokyo. Kaneo was a great communicator leading up to the tour day and went above and beyond planning for us. He sent a detailed itinerary including pictures that helped us easily locate lockers at the airport to leave bags and to find our decided meeting place. Kaneo had some suggested sites to see and augmented his suggested itinerary with things we requested, such as a trip to the outer Tsukiji market and a visit to a Ramen restaurant I read about and wanted to visit. Kaneo not only made our day in Tokyo a stress free day of fun, but he was also a wonderful companion. We all enjoyed conversing with him throughout the day. We hope to see Kaneo again in the future. Money well spent.

Kaneo:

Dear Michael Thank you for your warm review. I am really happy to hear you enjoyed Tokyo small tour. I also enjoyed talking with you and your companions. I truly hope to see you again in the future. Kaneo

“ Fun Exploration in Yokohama ”

Prior to the trip, Mr. Kaneo was very proactive in creating the itineraries and he even created two: one for sunny day and the other one for rainy. This was done so we would not get wet much. I believe that was very considerate of him. He was also quick to reply to my messages and update me with any information he believes I should know. There were six of us taking the Yokohama tour with Mr. Kaneo. We visited the Landmark Building, Cup Noodle Museum, Red Brick House, Chinatown and the Ramen Museum. Throughout the trip, Mr. Kaneo was very helpful with our inquiries and walking pace. Mind you, there were my parents, my husband, our two young kids and myself. As you can imagine the walking pace could not be fast. It was on my request that Mr. Kaneo did not have to take us back to the ... read more

Kaneo:

Dear Joshie. Thank you for your warm and long review. I was very lucky to have a chance to guide you and your family. It didn’t rain on that day even in the middle of the rainy season. Maybe our weather welcomed you and your nice and warm family. I was happy to hear that your father told me he enjoyed eating a really good ramen at Ramen Museum. The coffee you kindly brought me from your country smells so good. I love it. Thank you. Sincerely, Kaneo

“ imperial palace, shibyua, asakusa shrine, karakuma, the great budda ”

If you are searching for a tour guide, look no further. kaneo is the one. kaneo is not only excellent tour guide, he went above and beyond to customized our tour. He took us to many interesting places within a day, very efficient. Prior to our arrival to japan, he physically went to Narita Airport to snap shoot step by step instructions on what train and subways to take from the airport to my hotel. It is above our expectation. He is such an amazing, detail oriented, kind man. He always ensured everyone was entertained. We have a total of eight people in our group and every single person in our group is happy with Kaneo especially my two teenage daughters. While waiting, he taught my daughters how to do origami. I highly recommend Kaneo to anyone who looks for a tour guide in... read more

Kaneo:

Dear Brianna Thank you for your warm and excellent review. I am happy to know that every person of your group enjoyed our tour, especially your daughters. We could not see Mt. Fuji during our two days tour. I hope you could enjoy a gigantic and beautiful view of Mt. Fuji on the way to Kyoto. Kaneo
