“ Amazing! You should definitely choose Kyoko! ”

Kyoko was not just a guide, she have lots of knowledge, local culture, took us to special places and cared very well of us. We already miss her company.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for writing me a wonderful review, Daniel-san! I am very happy to have attended you two for these three days. I could comfortably spend times with you due to your kindness and generosity. I really loved your funny jokes which hurt nobody. You bought tons of lucky charms in shrines and temples, so I am sure that they will work well and bring you a further success. I hope you will come back again in the near future and let's try another adventure!

“ A wonderful evening! ”

Kyoko is a fantastic guide. She is knowledgeable, warm, friendly and thoughtful. Kyoko liaised with us to plan a wonderful walking tour of Shinjuku. I would highly recommend doing this to help orient yourself with this very busy area. We saw Tokyo from above, had a lovely meal in a tiny restaurant in Memory Lane, was scared by Godzilla, made and offering at a Shinto shrine and had drinks in an authentic small bar with the locals in and so much more. A wonderful experience with many things we would not have done or found without Kyokos guidance. She is such a lovely lady and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a guide.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Trish for your wonderful comment and review! I am very happy to know that two of you enjoyed the night so much!! I especially remember you were really relaxed in a very small Showa-taste (Japan's former era) snack which can house only 7 or 8 people. Local people there seemed very happy to have been able to talk with you in broken English. You two were naturally submerged in the atmosphere. It was such a nice scene that I won't forget it for good. Thank you very much for everything you and your husband did to me. I hope you two will come back to Japan in the near future maybe third or fourth time and see me again !!

“ Hakone Tour with Kyoko ”

Tour was good and Kyoko was very accomodating and polite. Highly recommended tour guide.

Kyoko:

Thank you Catherine for writing me a review! Recently, Hakone is very crowded and we had only very short time, so , the tour itself got very busy. If we had had a little more longer time, we could have had a much perfect day. But your awesome family was very kind and well-mannered enough to enjoy such a short stay. I hope you will come back again in the near future and let's try Hakone again with one night stay together!!

“ Fantastic Guide! ”

Kyoko is a delight! The moment we met her, she welcomed us to Japan with a smile and a big hug. She is exceptionally knowledgeable about the history of cities in and around Tokyo. She was very patient and we made multiple unscheduled stops. Even though, she got us back on schedule and we were able to visit all the sights as planned, On the second day of our scheduled tour, she arrived with a bag full of Japanese treats. My daughter and I were so comfortable and impressed with Kyoko, my daughter spent half a day touring the city with Kyoko while I was back at the hotel resting. My daughter returned from the tour with more excitement then before she left. Fantastic tour guide! if she is available during your visit to Japan, book her now! She will provide you with the peace... read more

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Tasha for your quick and wonderful comment. You generously had me full 8hours tours for two days , but due to your tiredness and cold, we could not use up whole hours. So, my small treat is only the token of my sorry. Please enjoy them soon. Your daughter is well-diciplined and acted greatly while you were not there. I was impressed by her braveness. Some people happily took us pictures and asked her where she is from. I am really happy to be with so nice mother and daughter. Please continue a safe and comfortable journey!

“ Kyoko was a great tour guide ”

Kyoko met all of our expectations for are one day in Tokyo. She met us at our hotel on time and ended our day at our ship with time to spare. We had lunch at a wonderful sushi and tempura restaurant that catered to locals with Delicious Japanese food. She was knowledgeable about Tokyo and made the day educational and fun. We recommend her highly and would use her services again. Alan and Patricia

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Alan and Patricia for writing me a wonderful review! I am very happy to know all my plans met your requests. The first temple is Tokugawa Shogun's family temple but you especially loved the atmosphere of Asakusa. Traveling with big luggage from Tokyo to Yokohama might be hard for you but you did it very smoothly. Thank you again anad again and I am really looking forward to meeting you again in the near future!!
