“ Wonderful tour and lovely guide ”

Kahoko guided us through Mt Takao and arranged a lunch at a Buddhist Temple. The whole day was wonderful. Kahoko met us at the station and guided us through the hike with friendliness, knowledge and enthusiasm. I highly recommend the experience.


Thank you very much for the kind review! I had such a meaningful time with a terrific couple. I enjoyed every conversation with you and learned a lot about your country and culture even English literature . Thank you again and take care!

“ Tokyo in one day ”

Kahoko was our tour guide for Tokyo. She picked us from Yokohama port and we took train to Tokyo. She was very helpful. It was raining but even then she managed to show us the best of Tokyo in one day leaving us back on cruise in time.


Thank you for the kind review! I really appreciate your patience and tolerance even though we had such a bad weather yesterday. Hopefully, you are having a peaceful and comfortable cruise to Shanghai. I hope I will be able to guide you under the blue sky next time. Thank you again and take care!

“ The Perfect Selection! ”

We did a full day walking tour with Kahoko. We were exhausted by the end of the tour but we had an amazing time! We visited everything that we requested and Kahoko managed our itinerary well. She is very knowledgeable about Japanese history and culture and shared with us along the way. Kahoko is also very patient and kind, making it very easy to connect with her. We will certainly reach out to Kahoko the next time we’re in Tokyo!


Thank you very much for the kind review! I am sorry to have made you be exhausted even though you never complained. You are the ones who are kind and patient. I had such a great time with a first guest from Maryland and friends. I hope you were able to be refreshed and ready to come back to your usual days with your princess. Please come back to Tokyo with her some day. Thank you again and take care!

“ Efficient Tour Guide ”

Kahoko went to our hotel 15 minutes before our agreed time. She’s very friendly and comfortable to talked to. Its easy to talked to her and she easily adapt to the changes that we made for the day. She even went out of her way to go to shopping with us for some specific orders. Thank You, Kahoko. We love chatting with you and for your time with us.


Thank you very much for the kind review! I had such a pleasant time with a happy family and friends. It's funny our highlight in Mt Takao was the money park even through the monkey babies were super cute. Please come back to Japan again , maybe next time I will go anywhere with you. Thank you again and take care!

“ Very good experience ”

Kahoko clearly loves what she is doing and she does it very well. We visited many interesting places in one day, she taught us how to navigate the public transit and she choose a very good restaurant for our lunch.


Thank you for the kind review! I had such a pleasant time with you. As my husband and I are big fans of your home country, talking about the place was just interesting and beneficial. My big apology is not carrying any business cards with me then. If there is anything I can do for you, anything, anytime. Thank you again and take care!
