“ An Amazing Fall Day In Nikko ”

Kahoko was an amazing guide for our family! She was so well organized and friendly! We were able to see so much in Nikko because she had everything planned out so well! Her English is excellent! If you want to have an amazing time exploring in the Tokyo area and surrounds; I can highly recommend Kahoko!

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the sweet review ! That encouraged me very much. I had such a lovely day with you. The autumn leaves were so beautiful even for a guide's eyes. Also I didn't know there live rare animals near famous Kegon waterfall . I had many interesting experiences thanks to you. I hope you a happy Thanksgiving and marry Christmas. Gerald, I am waiting for you coming back to Tokyo ! Thank you again and take care !

“ Very helpful and kind ”

Kahoko was very accommodating, kind and conscientious about making sure we had a good experience. She even split our day tour into two half days because our first day was pouring with rain and it would have been terrible to spend all day getting wet. But she took the time to help us get our transit passes and familiarize us with the metro and trains on the first day which helped us get more comfortable with our first time in Asia. The next day the weather cleared so we were able to enjoy a variety of sites. She even found a 100% buckwheat Soba noodle restaurant (to accommodate a wheat intolerance) which we later visited and had an amazing dinner. We never would have found it without her since the part that mentioned 100% buckwheat was all in Japanese. She really helped get us comfortable ... read more

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review ! That was really encouraging for me. I really appreciated your tolerance and cooperation under that terrible weather. I am so happy to know you having tried 100 % soba noodles . As you were caring each others very much , I believe your rest of journey was such memorable one. I hope you will have chance to come back to Tokyo someday. Please stay fit, sweet , and happy. Thank you again and take care !

“ Day trip to Nikko ”

We had an amazing day in Nikko with Kahoko . Because of the typhoon a lot of the trains weren’t running . Kahoko organised alternative transport for us which worked perfectly. She is a truly lovely lady whose knowledge and enthusiasm was contagious . I highly recommend her to anyone coming to Nikko or Tokyo .

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kindest review ! I will never forget your cooperation and tolerance under the unexpected condition. Actually, thanks to you, I enjoyed VACANT Toshogu area myself. Probably, you are all Mr and Ms lucky. By the way, I believe England will win the World cup . Go England !

“ We hired 4 guides in our 17 days tour to Tokyo, Takamatsu and Shanghai and Kahoko helped us visiting Tokyo. ”

Kahoko had a unique mission from us in our art tour in Tokyo within 2 days. She was top efficient leading us along the transportation system. Saving lot of time at the very long trips in Tokyo. She was most knowledgeable with the visiting spots information. Our tour was absolutely not a standard visiting tour and Kahoko fulfilled all our expectations. It was a great pleasure for my wife and myself to spend these two days in Tokyo with Kahoko and see the so many places we wished and planed to see.

KAHOKO:

Thank you for the nice review. I had such a great time with two of you even though the weather was not so good. I appreciated your tolerance and cooperation. I believe your visit to Takamatsu and Naoshimd was relaxing and memorable. I really envy you! Please come back to Tokyo some day. There's more to see. Thank you again and take care!
