“ Awesome Day In Tokyo With Kahoko ”

We had a terrific day with Kahoko. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to see and learn a lot about Tokyo. She was really good about sending emails and setting up our day before our trip started...what did we want to do and see. She offered suggestions but left the final decisions up to us. She: * Taught us how to use the subway * Taught us a lot about Japanese history and culture * Showed us a million little things in Tokyo we would have NEVER seen or known * Offered lunch suggestions and helped us order a great lunch * Took us on a tour of a Tokyo neighborhood and showed us how they live every day * Showed us how to get around Tokyo so we could spend time out on our own the remainder of the week Again, if you are looking for someone to show you this incredible... read more

KAHOKO:

Thank you for the kindest review ! I really appreciate it. I had a wonderful day with all of you! You are making such a terrific team; all cheerful, tough and tolerant. I was lucky enough to be able to guide you all. It was quite a rare case to visit more places than originally planned thanks to your fitness. Especially, you are a first triathlon finisher for me. I just can't imagine to ride and swim except for a full marathon. I do respect you. By the way, I was wondering how was your cooking class and Team labo like. I hope your rest of time in Japan memorable and enjoyable. Please come back to Tokyo for Tokyo marathon soon. I hope I will be running there far behind, though. Thank you again and take care!

“ Wonderful, Hospitable, Knowledgeable Guide! ”

We spent 2 very full days with Kahoko for my wife's and my first time visiting Tokyo. She is friendly, engaging and cheerful and very customer-focused. From the beginning she was quick to respond as we prepared for our sightseeing. The Triple Lights website was an excellent way to communicate. We sent her a random list of places and things we'd like to do and she organized them into 2 logical days as well as suggesting some other interesting places or activities. As we subsequently learned from her, one of our requests (the Seiko watch museum), was a place she had not been before. However, she researched it by visiting it in advance of our arrival so she knew exactly how to get us there. This is an illustration of how prepared she was throughout our 2 days. My wife has some limitations on ... read more

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review! Probably, it was too good for me. I had such lovely time with you for two days. You are nice, thoughtful, and generous. It was a great pleasure to see you be interested in our history, culture and way of living. I also appreciate your dear wife's cheerfulness and patience. I believe she must have hurt a lot after a long walk even though she never complained. Please take care of her. I am really looking forward to seeing you again !

“ Great day in Tokyo. ”

Great day in Tokyo with Kahoko. She was able to take us to so many sites and move us around the city with ease. She was able to tailor the trip to our interests which were historical sites and gardens in the city. She helped us get a pasmo card and got us used to using the subway system. It was truly an excellent day and we covered a lot of things in the city. Do not hesitate and hire Kahoko!

KAHOKO:

Thank you for the kind review! I had such a lovely time with a nice couple like you.You were always cooperative and helpful even though it was a hot humid day.And we walked a lot! It was really a good exercise for us. Please stay fit and happy. I hope you

“ Outstanding and professional Tour Guide ”

Kahoko-san was amazing! She met us at our hotel and helped us with our JR pass, and gave us a very helpful tutorial of the complex Tokyo Metro system. With her help, we were able to get around ourselves after our two day tour! Kahoko-san was prompt, knowledgeable, thoughtful, kind and pleasant. It was a delight to spend two days with her. We were able to see many highlights of Tokyo and her itinerary was well though-out and planned. Will most definitely contact Kahoko-san the next time we are in Tokyo. We highly recommend her!

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review! It should be me to appreciate all of you because I had such a pleasant time with you. Especially, your princess is too sweet! Nobody can't come to like her. Also, it's a great news that you spent lovely days after the tour in your pace . I hope you will come back to Tokyo some day. Please stay healthy, cool and happy. Thank you again and take care!

“ The best tour guide I’ve ever experienced ”

We were a group of four adults. How fortunate for us to have booked Kahoko! She met us at our hotel and guided us seamlessly through out Tokyo for a full day tour. With her expertise we were able to navigate public transportation easily and see far more than we ever would have seen on our own. And the places we saw! Temples, museums, Old Japan, Modern Japan and so much more. All of her suggestions were spot on and she was a fountain of knowledge. Oh, and did I mention how kind and helpful she was? We all loved our day with her and will recommend her to our family and friends.

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review! I had such a pleasant time with a group of good neighbors. I think it's really a rare case to have a great relationships like you do. It was a heartwarming moments to see you take care of each others. I do hope you will have a wonderful and memorable time in China. If there is a chance to see you again in two years, it would be a great pleasure for me. Thank you again and take care you all!
