“ Kiyoto tour ”

Kazuhiko was a wonderful guide. His English was easy to understand and he was very knowledgeable. He is a fast walker so be forewarned. We would highly recommend his services.

“ Thank you Mr Kazu :) ”

It was so quick to warm up with Mr Kazu who is warm, friendly and sincere. I don’t think we could cover so much in Kyoto within a day without him. We also appreciated him for the kaiseki lunch which he organised for us. It was a wonderful experience! Thank you. :)


Dear Ms.Winnie Ang I appreciate your feedback. I’m very pleased that your nice family enjoyed the tour. I had great time as well showing your family around Kyoto. I'm glad that you enjoyed lunch. I'm sorry that I have made your family walk a a lot and I made your family tired. I sincerely hope this experience was memorable and you visit Japan again and if so I would be glad to guide you again. Thank you!! Best regards, Kazuhiko Goto

“ Kyoto Vacation ”

We were supposed to be guided for 2 days but because of my husband being brought to Emergency Hodpital we shortened our tour for 1 day. I asked our guide to refund our 2nd day since my husband was sick to avail the travel but triple lights did not refund our money. I know u have cancellation policy but I hope you are more considerate coz my husband is diagnosed with mild heart failure which he needs rests n possible to fly back to Canada. I am still appealing to refund the cost of the 2nd day tour. Thank you.


Dear Ms.Riza I appreciate your feedback. Are your husband all right ? When I received your email in the morning, I was very surprised and I went to your hotel. Moreover, I sent email to Triplelights about refund. Because of cancellation policy, you can not receive refund. There is nothing I can do about that. Sorry!! I pray that your husband get well soon. Thank you! Best regards, Kazuhiko Goto

“ Very nice and informative! ”

Kazuhiko was a very good guide for our group of 14. Even though he had a bit of trouble understanding us and us him, he did a great job trying to explain everything in English as best as he could. His English was definitely better than our Japanese. (smile) Kazu (as he told us to call him), was very knowledgeable and the group enjoyed listening to him explain all things about his family life, culture, economics, politics and more. He was super friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed our day with him and would gladly recommend his services to anyone. We would include a group photo, but this review doesn't have a place to select add photos. Thanks again, April & group


Dear Ms.April I appreciate your feedback. I’m very pleased that your group enjoyed their tour. I had great time as well showing your group around Osaka and Kyoto. I sincerely hope this experience was memorable. I hope the cranes ("Orizuru") which I gave present will remind your group of this tour in Japan. I'm sorry that I skipped some spots, because we did not time to visit the spots. I sincerely hope your group visit Japan again and if so I would be glad to guide your group again. Moreover, I would like to show your group more beautiful spots in japan. Thank you!! Best regards, Kazuhiko Goto
