“ Money Well Spent ”

My husband, two friends and I had a 12 hour layover at Narita and hired Kaneo as our guide to Tokyo. Kaneo was a great communicator leading up to the tour day and went above and beyond planning for us. He sent a detailed itinerary including pictures that helped us easily locate lockers at the airport to leave bags and to find our decided meeting place. Kaneo had some suggested sites to see and augmented his suggested itinerary with things we requested, such as a trip to the outer Tsukiji market and a visit to a Ramen restaurant I read about and wanted to visit. Kaneo not only made our day in Tokyo a stress free day of fun, but he was also a wonderful companion. We all enjoyed conversing with him throughout the day. We hope to see Kaneo again in the future. Money well spent.

Kaneo:

Dear Michael Thank you for your warm review. I am really happy to hear you enjoyed Tokyo small tour. I also enjoyed talking with you and your companions. I truly hope to see you again in the future. Kaneo

“ Fun Exploration in Yokohama ”

Prior to the trip, Mr. Kaneo was very proactive in creating the itineraries and he even created two: one for sunny day and the other one for rainy. This was done so we would not get wet much. I believe that was very considerate of him. He was also quick to reply to my messages and update me with any information he believes I should know. There were six of us taking the Yokohama tour with Mr. Kaneo. We visited the Landmark Building, Cup Noodle Museum, Red Brick House, Chinatown and the Ramen Museum. Throughout the trip, Mr. Kaneo was very helpful with our inquiries and walking pace. Mind you, there were my parents, my husband, our two young kids and myself. As you can imagine the walking pace could not be fast. It was on my request that Mr. Kaneo did not have to take us back to the ... read more

Kaneo:

Dear Joshie. Thank you for your warm and long review. I was very lucky to have a chance to guide you and your family. It didn’t rain on that day even in the middle of the rainy season. Maybe our weather welcomed you and your nice and warm family. I was happy to hear that your father told me he enjoyed eating a really good ramen at Ramen Museum. The coffee you kindly brought me from your country smells so good. I love it. Thank you. Sincerely, Kaneo

“ imperial palace, shibyua, asakusa shrine, karakuma, the great budda ”

If you are searching for a tour guide, look no further. kaneo is the one. kaneo is not only excellent tour guide, he went above and beyond to customized our tour. He took us to many interesting places within a day, very efficient. Prior to our arrival to japan, he physically went to Narita Airport to snap shoot step by step instructions on what train and subways to take from the airport to my hotel. It is above our expectation. He is such an amazing, detail oriented, kind man. He always ensured everyone was entertained. We have a total of eight people in our group and every single person in our group is happy with Kaneo especially my two teenage daughters. While waiting, he taught my daughters how to do origami. I highly recommend Kaneo to anyone who looks for a tour guide in... read more

Kaneo:

Dear Brianna Thank you for your warm and excellent review. I am happy to know that every person of your group enjoyed our tour, especially your daughters. We could not see Mt. Fuji during our two days tour. I hope you could enjoy a gigantic and beautiful view of Mt. Fuji on the way to Kyoto. Kaneo

“ Amazing afternoon Tokyo tour! ”

Kaneo is a fabulous tour guide that went above and beyond to make our tour of Tokyo wonderful. Using the subway system I was able to create my own tour to see the sights easily with Kaneo’s help. Kaneo was wonderful with the children and spoke English very well. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a tour of Tokyo.

Kaneo:

Dear Jess Thank you very much for your warm review. I’m very happy to hear you enjoyed my tour. Your families are truly good, especially your kids. They are so cute and clever. I wanted to teach them more about Origami. Best regards, Kaneo
