“ Tour of Tokyo ”

Despite a typhoon the night before Kahoko still managed to complete the full tour we had expected. She was extremely informative, accommodating and made sure our day was great. Highly recommend for anyone wishing to see the highlights of Tokyo.

“ Awesome Day In Tokyo With Kahoko ”

We had a terrific day with Kahoko. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to see and learn a lot about Tokyo. She was really good about sending emails and setting up our day before our trip started...what did we want to do and see. She offered suggestions but left the final decisions up to us. She: * Taught us how to use the subway * Taught us a lot about Japanese history and culture * Showed us a million little things in Tokyo we would have NEVER seen or known * Offered lunch suggestions and helped us order a great lunch * Took us on a tour of a Tokyo neighborhood and showed us how they live every day * Showed us how to get around Tokyo so we could spend time out on our own the remainder of the week Again, if you are looking for someone to show you this incredible... read more

KAHOKO:

Thank you for the kindest review ! I really appreciate it. I had a wonderful day with all of you! You are making such a terrific team; all cheerful, tough and tolerant. I was lucky enough to be able to guide you all. It was quite a rare case to visit more places than originally planned thanks to your fitness. Especially, you are a first triathlon finisher for me. I just can't imagine to ride and swim except for a full marathon. I do respect you. By the way, I was wondering how was your cooking class and Team labo like. I hope your rest of time in Japan memorable and enjoyable. Please come back to Tokyo for Tokyo marathon soon. I hope I will be running there far behind, though. Thank you again and take care!

“ Wonderful, Hospitable, Knowledgeable Guide! ”

We spent 2 very full days with Kahoko for my wife's and my first time visiting Tokyo. She is friendly, engaging and cheerful and very customer-focused. From the beginning she was quick to respond as we prepared for our sightseeing. The Triple Lights website was an excellent way to communicate. We sent her a random list of places and things we'd like to do and she organized them into 2 logical days as well as suggesting some other interesting places or activities. As we subsequently learned from her, one of our requests (the Seiko watch museum), was a place she had not been before. However, she researched it by visiting it in advance of our arrival so she knew exactly how to get us there. This is an illustration of how prepared she was throughout our 2 days. My wife has some limitations on ... read more

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review! Probably, it was too good for me. I had such lovely time with you for two days. You are nice, thoughtful, and generous. It was a great pleasure to see you be interested in our history, culture and way of living. I also appreciate your dear wife's cheerfulness and patience. I believe she must have hurt a lot after a long walk even though she never complained. Please take care of her. I am really looking forward to seeing you again !

“ Great day in Tokyo. ”

Great day in Tokyo with Kahoko. She was able to take us to so many sites and move us around the city with ease. She was able to tailor the trip to our interests which were historical sites and gardens in the city. She helped us get a pasmo card and got us used to using the subway system. It was truly an excellent day and we covered a lot of things in the city. Do not hesitate and hire Kahoko!

KAHOKO:

Thank you for the kind review! I had such a lovely time with a nice couple like you.You were always cooperative and helpful even though it was a hot humid day.And we walked a lot! It was really a good exercise for us. Please stay fit and happy. I hope you
