“ Wonderful Guide! Highly Recommended! ”

Kahoko was great to work with and very thoughtful in organizing our tour. She is a wealth of information and shared great insight, facts, and knowledge about Tokyo and all the landmarks we visited. I was exhausted from jet lag and she was flexible making last minute suggestions on easy places to see. Kahoko was very professional and we enjoyed her tour very much. I would highly recommend!!


Thank you very much for an encouraging review! For myself , lack of sleep is toughest thing to bear. Maybe, you had a great time with your sister and dad after that. For now, you must be having a big and happiest family gathering. Just imagining the scene makes me warm. I wish you a happy holidays. Thank you again and take care!
