“ Unique and fun experience - highly recommend "Japanese Cultural Experience at Kahoko's home" ”

My husband and daughter had the wonderful opportunity to visit Kahoko's home, where they met her husband and daughter, enjoyed lunch, tried on kimonos, and had a photo shoot! They can't stop talking about it. They found Kahoko and her family to be very warm and friendly. While I was unable to attend, I was SO glad to see the photos of them wearing such beautiful kimonos in the garden. My daughter so appreciated the help of Kahoko's daughter with fixing her hair. After seeing such lovely kimonos in shops and at shrines and temples during the first part of our tour, I was really glad to know that they would have the experience to wear them. Thank you SO much. I hope I can do this tour when I return to Tokyo! Also, Kahoko was very responsive on the Triplelights messaging system, whi... read more


Thank you very much for the kind review! We have a lovely time together. You make such a terrific family ! Even though I was not able to meet you, I could have felt as if we had actually met because they talked about you a lot . You seem to be a beloved mom and wife as well as a successful career woman. Your daughter was just beautiful in kimono thanks to her loveliness and slenderness. Your husband looked like a SAMURAI . Also, it was fun to talk about Alaska , my memorable place, and Ireland. I just enjoyed every minute with them. Next time,I would like to meet YOU! I hope you'll have lectures in Tokyo again. Thank you!

“ Kahoko was a great guide for touring Tokyo ”

I’m so glad we were able to book Kahoko for our visit to Tokyo. We arrived by cruise ship and needed to have a large enough vehicle to hold our luggage as well as a guide to take us around for 5 hours and then transport us to airport hotel. Kahoko organized everything including hiring the driver/ vehicle and scheduling the itinerary, which allowed us to visit all of the sites we requested in the limited time we had. She was very knowledgeable about the sites, and treated us to local food fare. Can’t say enough good things about her. Would definitely recommend Kahoko ‘s services. Thank you again Kahoko for a wonderful day!


Thank you very much for a kind review! It's so encouraging to me. I had such a lovely day with a happy family. You were all cooperative and ready to enjoy every elements of the tour. It was a pity we had only several hours together. I hope you'll come back to Japan someday soon. There are so many other places to visit in Japan. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you so much and take care!

“ Trip to Tokyo ”

kahoko looked after our group extremely well. She was informative & professional and showed us some interesting places around Tokyo. We felt comfortable with her, and she made our visit to Tokyo memorable.


Thank you very much for a kind review. I had such a wonderful time with your friends, cousins and chefs. I have learned many things from them such as how to make caramari fritos . Please give them my best regards. I just wish I could have been with you on the tour. I think you have had such a hard time last several weeks. Please take care and visit Tokyo someday.

“ Morning tour of Tokyo ”

Kahoko was a wonderful host, and guided us on a lovely tour through Tokyo. We enjoyed our destinations so much that we went back to them ourselves, utilising the excellent advise of Kahoko on the public transport network. I highly recommend a tour by Kahoko on your visit to Tokyo - especially the sushi restaurant for lunch !


Thank you for the kind review! I was wondering how your rest of the journey was like. It had to be a marvelous one because you were ready to enjoy in any case. I had such a great time with a terrific couple like you. I learned a lot about Scotland. Maybe my husband and I should visit there some day soon. Thank you again and take care.

“ Wonderful day in Tokyo with Kahoko ”

We had a wonderful day out with Kahoko. She is kind and knowledgeable and shared a lot of information about Tokyo. She knew where to find all the candies and gifts my mom was looking for and stayed with us well beyond our booked time. At the end of the day we felt very confident in our ability to navigate around the city. We would certainly book with her again.


Thank you very much for a kind review! I had such a lovely time with a nice female party. I myself have two little sisters , so seeing you happy made me missing them . I want to travel like you do now some day. Your travel is going on . I just hope you a joyful stay and good weather. Thank you again and take care!
