“ Cherry Blossoms revisited with cheerful Kahoko ”

We had two days of personal tour and our guide Kahoko brought made it memorable by cheerfully packing in everything feasible. We saw the blooming cherry blossoms both during the day and lit up in the evening lights, walked through Tokyo and travelled extensively on the subway. The temples, quaint eating joints, local sweet delicacies, gardens, river cruise, transversing through shopping areas on a budget with those with no budgets!! The weather played along with sunny clear days allowing us to make most of the two days. Kahoko had devised an itinerary to suit our varied choices, history, old town area v/s new centers, culture, food habits, interesting new eating places- even managing to interchange plans within those two days to suit our weary feet. Her cheerful disposition, excellent communication skills, extensive knowledge and willingness to accommodate real;y brought Tokyo to life for us. If we ever visit again, our choice would be have Kahoko show us more of rural Tokyo. It was a very happy vacation for us - or shall I use say shiawase - the japanese word for happiness. Thank you Kahoko happy tired Anjali and Deepak Kumar

“ A lovely day in Kamakura ”

We had a wonderful day in Kamakura. Kahoko met us at our hotel and escorted us, by train and tram to see the Great Buddha, the bamboo forest and several temples in Kamakura - as well as choosing a great place for lunch. Kahoko spoke very good English, and had a sense of humour. She was very flexible with our plans for the day - and together with great weather - gave us the perfect day trip from Tokyo

“ Exceptional Service ”

I highly recommend Kahoko san she was energetic, polite, knowledgeable and was able to provide a great service to my family. In our group of seven we were travelling with my elderly parents and two young adults. My moms has some mobility issues while the two younger adults moved at a faster pace. Given our diverse group Kahoko san was able to keep everyone engaged and was extremely thoughtful towards my parents and even gave them a small gift. We did have an agenda but she quickly adapted to our requests and also was quick to find us a Very good place to have lunch. I would highly recommend Kahoko san and would use her services again.
