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 .

Kahoko was delightful. She was very knowledgeable and interesting. We had spent two days in Tokyo prior to meeting Kahoko and had seen many of the major sites. She offered a different perspective on the city and introduced us to places we would not have seen without her. She was flexible. Her English is excellent. Clearly her goal was to ensure we had a beautiful day and she did that very successfully. We cannot say enough good things about her. We would recommend her unhesitatingly. You will be fortunate to have her as your guide.
Kahoko is an excellent tour guide. She has in-depth knowledge of local history so it was a treat to tour with her. She is very friendly, accommodating, and took us to her favorite lunch spot in Yanaka Ginza (soba noddles). We highly recommend Kahoko and would tour with her again.
Kahoko San was a great tour guide. She was very timely and knowledgeable of all locations we visited. She spoke very good English and was very confident in her guidance. She actually went above and beyond what was expected of a tourist guide. She had no obligation for helping us carry our shopping bags, but she did. That was very much appreciated. There is no way my husband and I would have enjoyed our visit in Tokyo had it not been for her guidance and the services we received from triple lights. Thank you very much for everything.
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.
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
