“ Quick trip to Tokyo! ”

We absolutely LOVED Kahoko!!!! She was awesome!!!! She met us at the airport as we were not confident we could manage on our own. HA! She showed us everything. Well as much as you can see in 10 hours! :-) We would not have had as much fun if we didn't meet her. We will definitely request her again when we return with our children. A++++++++++

KAHOKO:
Dear Lady Catherine in Chicago. Thank you so much for the sweetest review. Yes ! I had fabulous time with you , myself. You were always ready to challenge , wonder and enjoy during the limited time. I think you are a genius to enjoy a journey. Still , from the moment you landed , you must have been so busy as a mother and wife , I believe. Please take care. I hope you come back to Japan with your family again,and stay pretty !

“ Wonderful Tour with Kahoko ”

We arranged for a 1/2 day tour with Kahoko. I had emailed her that we wanted to visit Tsukiji Fish Market, Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings and Shinjuku Gyoen. I let her know that we would be jet-lagged seniors and that we didn't want to have too hectic of a pace. She responded promptly that it this itinerary was very possible. We had a wonderful time with her as she was so personable, professional, and a wealth of information. In a short time, we felt like she had been a long time friend. We not only learned about the sights that we visited, but she pointed out interesting things in our transit. We even learned how to maneuver the transportation system that we felt comfortable traveling around Tokyo on our own. Even though it was early in the season for the cherry blossoms, Kahoko took us to a beautiful tree in bloom in Shinjuku Gyoen that she had discovered the day before. We plan to return to Tokyo next year with other family members, and we hope to have Kahoko guide us around again.

KAHOKO:
Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! It was a great time to spend with you even though it was such a limited time. I wonder how your stay in Okinawa is like. Maybe relaxing and delightful one because there are full of attractions,such as local cooking course , or Cyurauni aquarium. As I am such a San Francisco lover, talking about the place with you was just terrific. I'm sure I'll visit there again. You're planning to come to Japan with your family ! I hope I could meet with you and sweet Naurie then. Take care and do enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan.

“ A truly wonderful introduction to Tokyo! ”

Kahoko was a splendid tour guide and gave us a really thorough introduction to Tokyo! Depending on your itinerary (our's was ambitious), definitely wear your walking shoes, I think we hit 12 miles! Kahoko's English is excellent and she herself is very sweet and likable. We were also very appreciative and impressed by the fact that she visited a vegetarian restaurant we had suggested the day before we arrived, just to make sure there were no issues in finding it (T's TanTan, vegetarian ramen, which we really enjoyed). It was very helpful to have a tour guide our first day in the city to help us understand how to navigate the subway, and Kahoko was great about making sure we saw the sites we wanted to see. Thank you Kahoko for your hospitality and a wonderful day in Tokyo! ありがとうございました!

KAHOKO:
Happy New Year. Thank you very much for the review. It was a great pleasure for me to share your precious time in Japan. Thanks to you , I could learn a lot about vegetarian meal and restaurants offering it. I was able to taste it myself for the first time. It was much better than my expectation. I was wondering how was your rest of your trip like. Please forgive my having you walk for a long distance. You must have got so tired. I admire your cooperation and patience. Please come back to Japan some day. Let´s make it easier next time. Thank you again and take care. Kahoko

“ Wonderful 4hr tour with Kohoko on our first day in Tokyo ”

Best decision to have a tour on our first day in Tokyo. Kahoko was a wonderful guide and we felt very blessed to have her with us. We were a large group of seven including three teenagers who had just hoped off an overnight flight so all a bit tired. She really responded to the groups needs and interests as we toured around Akihabara, Akasaka and Nippori/Yanaka. We did more in those 4hrs with Kahoko's guidance and directions than we have done in days since on our own. She took us down backstreet shortcuts and through suburban areas as well as to more well known tourist destinations. She advised us all what was what at the street food markets and helped with purchases on our journey. As a parent herself, she had a great understanding of the kids needs/wants. We can't thank her enough and when saying goodbye at the station it was like parting from a good friend. I can highly recommend taking a tour with Kahoko, you would never regret the decision. Best wishes on your travels.

KAHOKO:
Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! Having a tour with happy families like you was a wonderful start of the new year for me. I was so glad to see you try some challenging Japanese food or traditions. Then I was sure you could definitely have great time and enjoy every minute for the rest of your stay in Japan. You are very acceptable and spontaneous. I just hope your time in Japan exciting and happy. You are staying pretty long, if there is anything I can do for you. Anything, anytime. Kahoko
