“ A Day in Tokyo ”

My husband and I had an exceptional day visiting which I believe was the eastside of Tokyo with Kahoko. I had mentioned to Kahoko when first arranging the tour of places we might be interested in seeing, but never having been to Tokyo and so many places on our list I told her the 1 must place to go, Tsukiji Market, and let her take it from there. We had a very well versed tour of the market, got to tour the bustling secondary wholesale area with all the carts zipping around, the outer markets and had lunch at an absolutely wonderful standup sushi bar near the market. She took us through Asakusa, Ginza, and Akiharabara. Ginza was not high on my list but having Kahoko guide us through the Kabuki theater, which lead to conversation about Takarazuka, the basement food area of Mitsukoshi Department Store, and a stop at a nice cafe area above the central area of Ginza to have a break and to enjoy the view of the busy Ginza streets from floors above, which we would have never found on our own, provided us with a well-rounded view of Ginza other than just expensive shops. Even more than all the places and insights that Kahoko provided was conversations about life in Tokyo which felt like having a friend take us around for a visit.

Thank you for the nice review! I remember all the places and time we shared . We talked a lot, walk a lot, and eat a lot together. You remind me of Hawaiian gentle breeze and people's warmth. Somehow I was able to relax and enjoy the guiding from the beginning with you . Thanks to you , I had a great day myself , and even the familiar tiredness after the tour gave me a sense of satisfaction on that day. I hope you come back to Japan some day soon and share those pleasant time again. Thank you very much.

“ Best guide we've encountered. ”

A++ Kahoko is one of the best tour guides we have encountered. She guided us for one and a half days in Tokyo and one day in Kamakura on either side of a Riviera Travel tour of central Honshu. Her English is excellent and she went out of her way to make sure we had an enjoyable visit. Each morning she met us in our hotel lobby and returned us to the same spot at the end of the day. She taught us how to use the Tokyo subway ticket machines and then how to navigate the subway system. When entering a train she always hurried ahead to find us seats. Without her help we would have wasted at least half of our time getting from place to place. We were able to fit in all of the items on our bucket list not covered by our commercial tour, and then some of her suggestions. We went to some of her favorite local restaurants for our lunches: a 10 seat sushi restaurant at the Tokyo fish market, a small tempura restaurant in the Yanaka district, and a traditional Japanese restaurant in Kamakura. We would have never found these wonderful little restaurants on our own. Kahoko is very knowledgeable about all things Japanese and is a pleasure to be with. She was more like a personal friend than a tour guide. You will not find a better guide in Tokyo than Kahoko. We highly recommend her. Jon and Susan April 11, 12, 23

“ Pleasant and knowledgeable tour in Tokyo with Kahoko ”

Kahoko san was very nice and professional guide with whom I spent six hours viewing Tokyo. She planned our route well knowing my wishes but also taking into an account the city constraints like traffic and rush hour. We discussed many aspects of Japan during the tour and she shared me interesting things of Japanise way of living and the society overall. I was very satisfied of the tour and can highly recommend Kahoko as a guide to share highlights of the wonderful city of Tokyo and Japan in general.

Thank you very much for the review. It was a great pleasure to spend a beautiful day with you. I have learned a lot about your country, people and culture. I believe you enjoyed the rest of your stay, a bike tour or any surprise from your husband. You seem to make such a terrific couple. Please come back to Tokyo someday. Thank you again and take care.
