“ Very nice day in Kamakura! ”

Kahoko picked me up at my hotel and this was extremely helpful because I had limited experience using Tokyo public transit. She is a very knowledgeable person and we were able to communicate well using English. Kahoko shared cultural information with me about the difference between a temple and a shrine; she also shared helpful information about the history of Shintoism and Buddhism and how they eventually merged. We visited several temples and shrines in Kamakura but the highlight of the day for me was the restaurant she took us to for lunch. It was so delightful (best rice i have ever had!) and I really enjoyed our conversation and being able to talk about our different countries and politics. We also had a little time for shopping.

Thank you for the kind review! I had such a lovely time with you in Kamakura even though the weather was not that good. You were always ready to enjoy every site. Your smiles and wows made me happy for a whole day. Also I learned so many things from you about the USA now : politics, people's feelings, or even trend. As you are getting used to Japan this time, please come back to Japan with your partner next time. Thank you again and take care!

“ Wonderful guide ”

My 12yo daughter and I had a very full day with Kahoko. She is very knowledgeable, kind, patient and helpful. Kahoko’s English is exceptionally good, she is super fit and very interesting to talk to. I hope I didn’t give her nightmares of our crocodile and snake stories from home. Thank you Kahoko!


Thank you very much for the kind review! We had a good exercise! I hope you made a good recovery and get ready to enjoy KAWAII tour. I did get scared with your snake and alligator story even though I didn't have any nightmares fortunately. Please be careful for dangerous creatures and come back to Tokyo some day soon. Take care!

“ Excellent Tour Guide ”

Kahoko is an Excellent Japan Tour Guide - it’s our first time in Japan and we arranged for a pick up at Narita Airport took the bus to Downtown Tokyo - my wife and I Checked In at our hotel and started our tour that afternoon- brought us the this authentic ramen place for dinner - loved it ! The next day is a full day of our tour and brought us to SkyTree, Asakusa, Shibuya - went shopping for our souvenirs- very knowledgeable tour guide ! We would hire her again !


Thank you very much for the sweetest review! I had such a great time with a nice couple. I felt warm with the scenes of you caring each other. Probably, I should be better to my own husband. I hope your business going better and coming back to Tokyo again. Let's have sashimi together again. Thank you again and take care!
