“ Excellent Highlight One-Day Tour ”

We are incredibly happy and lucky that we booked our tour with Kahoko. She knows Tokyo like the back of her hand! We trusted her to put together a one-day itinerary, and the entire day exceeded our expectations. She is organized, generous, smart, and fun to talk to. It felt like we were visiting the city with a friend, not just a tour guide. She was sensitive to our needs, making sure we had enough bathroom and food breaks whenever we needed it. We honestly could not have done a one-day tour of Tokyo on our own - but with Kahoko, we were navigating the trains, tourist spots like a pro! As she got to know us better throughout the day, she adjusted our transit a little bit in order to add in neighborhoods that she knew we would like based on our interests. We are major foodies, and she delighted us with visits to wonderful markets, food stalls and restaurants! I would *highly* recommend Kahoko as a tour guide. I look forward to seeing her again on our next visit!

“ Tokyo layover ”

Kahoko was awesome! We had a 10 hour layover with 7 hours to spend checking out Tokyo. She met us at the airport and arranged everything! Train ride to town, metro to old town, taxi’s & even a boat ride. Took us to a cool sushi bar, a Ramen house, temples & lots of street markets. It was our time in Tokyo & im sure we got to see & do so much more with her guidance than if we tried to figure it out ourselves. I highly recommend this and Kahoko!

Kahoko is a very personable and considerate guide, our tour with her was a fantastic introduction to Tokyo. She goes above and beyond to tailor the tour to exactly what you want to see, and is very knowledgable about the history and culture of Japan. We highly recommend her tour, especially if you are new to Tokyo!
