Kahoko's recommended tour
8:30 At Tokyo Metro Tsukiji station.
Heading for Tsukiji, the biggest fish market in the world. So many fish, so many people,
,so many sushi restaurants. You can enjoy authentic sushi as brunch instead of later Asakusa
10:30 Walking to Ginza, one of the most sophisticated shopping zones in Tokyo. On the way to
Ginza, we can see Kabukiza,the theater for the traditional stage art,Kabuki. After strolling
around Ginza,we move to Asakusa.
11:45 Arriving Asakusa
It's always been a highlight of Tokyo sightseeing for its busy shopping arcade,Nakamise and
Senso-ji ,the oldest temple complex in Tokyo.
12:30 Lunch time. What shall we eat? Nothing is impossible here from a posh sukiyaki restaurant
to a reasonable noodle shop. Street food is another option. After lunch we take the subway
Omote-sando is originally the approach to Meiji-jingu . Now this stylish avenue is filled
with fancy designer shops and restaurants. Interestingly, just around the corner from
Omote-sando, we can find Takesita-dori, the famous teen fashion bazaar.
You'll see quite a few unique people in their eccentric fashion.
14:30 Visiting Meiji -jingu
It's one of the most prestigious shrines in Tokyo with solemn atmosphere.
In the precincts, there is a beautiful inner garden. If time allows, it's worth visiting.
You may be amazed with the tranquillity of the site even though it's in the busy district.
15:30 Now a long day is over. You must be content with full of experience, enjoyment, and
yes,exercise. Good job! Let me see you off at JR Harajuku station .

Very friendly person. Very knowlegable person about tokyo . Explain me in detail. I very hPpy. I will recommande to my friends. Thanks alot (どうもありがとうございました)
Kahoko was a splendid tour guide and gave us a really thorough introduction to Tokyo! Depending on your itinerary (our's was ambitious), definitely wear your walking shoes, I think we hit 12 miles! Kahoko's English is excellent and she herself is very sweet and likable. We were also very appreciative and impressed by the fact that she visited a vegetarian restaurant we had suggested the day before we arrived, just to make sure there were no issues in finding it (T's TanTan, vegetarian ramen, which we really enjoyed). It was very helpful to have a tour guide our first day in the city to help us understand how to navigate the subway, and Kahoko was great about making sure we saw the sites we wanted to see. Thank you Kahoko for your hospitality and a wonderful day in Tokyo! ありがとうございました!
Best decision to have a tour on our first day in Tokyo. Kahoko was a wonderful guide and we felt very blessed to have her with us. We were a large group of seven including three teenagers who had just hoped off an overnight flight so all a bit tired. She really responded to the groups needs and interests as we toured around Akihabara, Akasaka and Nippori/Yanaka. We did more in those 4hrs with Kahoko's guidance and directions than we have done in days since on our own. She took us down backstreet shortcuts and through suburban areas as well as to more well known tourist destinations. She advised us all what was what at the street food markets and helped with purchases on our journey. As a parent herself, she had a great understanding of the kids needs/wants. We can't thank her enough and when saying goodbye at the station it was like parting from a good friend. I can highly recommend taking a tour with Kahoko, you would never regret the decision. Best wishes on your travels.
We were fortunate to spend half a day with Kahoko on December 31st to get a taste of Tokyo. We arrived the night before and were a bit nervous about navigating the metro/railway so we wanted someone who could help orient us, and to show us some of the key areas of Tokyo. Kahoko met our request perfectly - she was waiting for us at the designated spot and helped us buy our Pasmo card and explain the train system. We travelled by train to Akihabara first to see the arcades and anime world; then to Asakusa to visit the beautiful Sensoji temple where Kahoko taught us the customs for New Year. She took us to an authentic conveyor belt sushi restaurant where the fish was so fresh - thank goodness she was able to translate for us as the servers didn't speak English. Finally, we went to Shibuya/Harajuku areas where there were lots of stores and street vendors selling different types of food. Kahoko is a very gracious and refined tour guide who made us feel so comfortable. What a wonderful introduction to Tokyo. ありがとうございました !!
My Family's first trip to Japan became more memorable with the tour guided by Kahoko-san. We learned a lot most especially on how to understand the "seemingly" complicated train system in Japan. But with how Kahoko presented it to us and explained on how to read the map, the rest of our train rides in Tokyo was a breeze. Thank you so much. Would definitely recommend Triplelights with Kahoko as guide to friends and relatives who will visit Japan soon. :-)
