“ An excellent and knowledgeable guide ”

I had an amazing day with Kyoko exploring Tokyo. I learned so much about Japan's history, she really knows her stuff! She was very flexible when I was deciding where I wanted to go and is just a very lovely person. Highly recommended

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for your excellent review, Emma-san! I am very happy to have been with you , especially your request of Happy Pancake. I had never heard of it and if you hadn't been here, I would have never waited in line for a pancake. But we were rewarded! I am impressed by you young people's ability of catching new information. I am also happy that you could get a cute lucky charm in Hanazono Shrine. I hope you will come back to Japan again and we can meet again in the near future!

“ Tokyo Gardens and Senso-ji Shrine ”

Wonderful experience. Kyoko was very friendly and well informed about the sights. I highly recommend Kyoko for tours and sightseeing. Superb.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Karan-san for your quick and excellent review! You are the first guests I welcomed in this new era, Reiwa. So, your family is not only nice but unforgettable. I also enjoyed your mother's and aunt's shopping spree. One of the Kokeshi doll you bought is the same type I have. I hope you love it for a long time. Please continue safe and wonderful journey. Hoping to see you again someday in the near future!

“ we had a wonderfull day with Kyoko ”

We had a fascinating day with Kyoko, an amazing guide, was attentive to our requests even though we changed them countless times, we really enjoyed being with her. Warmly recommending her.

Kyoko:

Thank you Alex-san for your excellent review! You and your wife were so kind and cooperative that I could easily attend you in any occasion. Using taxies time to time makes our tour easy and quick to move. Due to this, we could move more efficient and wider despite you were guests from Yokohama cruse port. The coffee we had at the Tokyo Metropolitan government building was unforgettably nice. I hope we could meet you again in someday near future!

“ Kyoko made our visit wonderful! ”

Kyoko made our introduction to Tokyo amazing. She was so thorough & thoughtful throughout our adventures - always one step ahead of us with ideas & suggestions. Our children (& us) adored Kyoko & we so grateful to have made a new friend. I can not recommend her enough - Kyoko is wonderful!

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Tara-san for writing me such a quick and awesome review! I am trying to return it by nicer words, but I haven't found them yet. So, I just tell you my appreciation in a normal way. Your family is kind , nice, punctual , and broad-minded, which makes me feel I might have had something more I could do for you. I hope I could inform you of just a part of attaraction in Tokyo. Looking forward to meeting you again in the near future!!

Kyoko:

Thank you for your strong and kind review, Robert-san! I am also really happy to have spent with you who are so kind and cheerful.
