“ Simply perfect guide for a first time visit! ”

Kahoko took the time to answer all of our questions and customized the tour around what we wanted to see. She was the nicest guide and made sure my wife and I were comfortable at every step. Would use Kahoko again when I come back to Tokyo!

KAHOKO:
Thank you very much for a nice and quick review ! It was such a pleasure to have shared time on your precious trip .

“ Paradise on the outer edge of Tokyo ”

Kahoko expertly guided me through the labyrinth of Tokyo’s metro system for our day’s excursion to Mt. Takao. First by subway, then train, then cable car and finally we used our own two feet walking on a very civilized paved path to reach our destination. Even though our weather was picture perfect with blue skies and puffy white clouds, Mt. Fuji eluded us from the summit of Mt. Takao. That said, the sheer serenity of this location and the exquisite views make this a very worthwhile tour. Kahoko is a fantastic guide with knowledge of Tokyo and all things Japanese from food to art to architecture to history and culture. So in addition to a great hike, I learned much about Japanese culture – past and present. Thanks Kahoko for a fantastic and fulfilling day!

KAHOKO:
Thank you very much for a great review ! It was such a grateful and comfortable day for me . That was my first Mt. Takao tour that I didn't have to worry about my guest´s condition . You are really energetic and intellectual person. I really enjoyed every conversation we had . I hope you will have another chance to come to Japan. If you ever have chance to meet Paula , please give her my best regard for me. Thank you agent and take care.

“ It was a joyful, exciting, relaxing way to see the Tokyo with and through the of women living there. ”

Kahoko greeted us with a warm welcome and had a wonderful day planned out for us beginning to end with walking to the Kabuki theater and fish market, and seeing temples and shrines along the way and boat ride to another city, sharing history past and current concerns, sampling new meals, giving guidance to gift buying ideas and ending with coffee together. This is the best way to see a city especially with a different language. Definitely would invite Kahoko to lead us again.

KAHOKO:
Thank you for the warmest review ! I had a great day with two of you , from the beginning to the end of relaxing coffee time. I´ve learned so many things from knowledgeable ladies with different culture. It was simply interesting ! I hope you will have another chance to come to Japan in different season. Thank you again and take care.

“ A wonderful day in Tokyo ”

Kahoko was terrific. Her English is very good. Her informative commentary really added to or enjoyment of all of the sights. She easily adapted to our preferences and went well beyond her commitment in order to accompany us to the location we wanted to visit after our half day tour to make sure that we found it. I would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo.

KAHOKO:
Thank you for a kind review ! I was wondering how your stay in Oedo Onsen was like. I hope you could have some relaxing and enjoyable time in the end of the journey. Please come back to Japan in cherry blossom season and take good pictures. Thank you again and take care.

“ Awesome Guide for Families and Foodies around Tokyo! ”

I love how patient, gracious and knowledgeable Kahoko is when it pertains to Japan culture, food, and family. We traveled with 4 boys aged 12, 9, 7, 2 and she was very helpful in managing the tour with them. My wife likes Kahoko and we wish we have more time to spend with her. She speaks English very well and very approachable. Highly recommended!

KAHOKO:
Thank you very much for a sweet review !Spending a day with your family reminded me of my own days. It was tough but also full of fun and laughter. The period of child rearing is limited , so please take care of yourselves and enjoy! I hope you will come back to Japan some day soon.
