“ Caring Professional Friendly Guide ?? ”

We spent the day with Kaori going off the beaten track in Nikkō. From the start, Kaori has been very responsive and clear in her communications. We knew exactly what to expect. We had a lovely day learning more about Japanese history and culture which was made fun because Kaori has a great sense of humour. She is very perceptive and caring as well. Thank you very much Kaori-San for a memorable day and many lovely photos - we only realised when we got back that we didn’t have one with you. Hopefully, we can spend some time together again on another off the beaten path trip and maybe we can take one then. Wishing you all the best.

Kaori:

Thank you for giving me an excellent review on me and my tour, Sasibha-san. We had a really beautiful relaxing day in Nikko's great nature. Your requested spot in Nikko was a hidden gem of Nikko even for Japanese people. We (our driver and I ) also enjoyed this tranquil onsen village wth you. Your family is so warm, beautiful family to be with. I enjoyed talking with each of you. And I was amazed how experienced you are as traveler in Japan. I'm so happy you love Japan so deeply. I should have taken a photo all together! I'm looking forward to hearing you from again for another adventure! Take care. Hugs and kisses, Kaori

“ Tokyo One-day as You Like ”

We really like our tour with Kaori. She was very accommodating. An excellent photographer. She brought us to a great place for lunch. That was an unexpected but surprisingly good choice. Kaori knows the history of the places we went really well. She taught us how to use the subway. We appreciate her for taking an extra hour in order for us to complete the tour.

Kaori:

Thank you for giving me an excellent review, Rowena-san. I'm so happy you liked photos I took for you. And I'm also happy that you all liked okonomiyaki lunch. I hope your sister makes okonomiyaki and yakisoba well at home! I was impressed that you all are into Mori museum exhibition. I'm glad we could have enough time for you to enjoy the exhibition at your own pace. I'm really looking forward to your coming back to Japan and seeing you again. Of course, your families, relatives and friends are welcome anytime! Hugs and kisses, Kaori

“ Senso-Ji Temple Harajuku Meiji shrine Shibuya ”

Kaori was fantastic. We are a family of 6 travelling to Japan for the first time. Kaori made our first day in Tokyo so easy. We learnt how to navigate the rail system & experienced so many things & places just like the locals. Kaori set us up for the next few days with maps & train information. She was a blessing. We would recommend her to anyone travelling to Japan.

Kaori:

Thank you for the kindest review, Liz san. And thank you for taking time for writing review while you’re still on holiday here. I’m glad to hear you feel easy to get around Tokyo after my tour. Your family are all bright and so friendly to me. I really enjoyed talking with each of you. I hope you have a lot of fun in skiing in Hakuba! Looking forward to meeting you again some day. Hugs and kisses, Kaori

“ Kaori 1st day ”

First day with Kaori was super good even though we just met, it was like we were best friends. We talked anything and she brought me to a shopping haven which was not in the itinerary for the first day and i was very grateful that she brought me there the "Nintendo shop" that was recently opened last Nov. 2019.

Kaori:

Thank you for the warmest review even while we’re still having tours, Sulina san! For me, it felt like same. I’m so grateful you have been friendly and enjoying time with me since first time I met you at the airport. I’m happy you loved Nintendo shop. It was lucky for me to know your favorites as you happened to tell me you like Nintendo games. I’m sure we’re having a wonderful time today, too. Thank you for your friendliness. Hugs and kisses, Kaori
