Hello , my future guests .

I live in Tokyo over 30 years with my family , one husband and two kids .
I used to work in an airline as a cabin attendant .
Naturally , I may have visited your countries myself as you do now .
I chose the job because I like traveling and meeting new people .
Now I'm so glad to be able to work for foreign visitors as a licensed guide .
When I have foreign guests .
I'd like to treat them as if they were my home stay guests , and I were their host mother in Tokyo .
I do hope their stay in Japan enjoyable and unforgettable .

“ Tokyo evening tour ”

Kahoko was a very good host and was very flexible even when plans changed due to weather and flight delays. Our group had a great time and would absolutely recommend Kahoko to anyone looking for a guide in the city! Thanks again Kahoko!


Thank you for a quick and kind review! I had a memorable night with you all. Spending a great time with five young guys was an yearend present for me. I hope you fully enjoy your stay in Japan. Thank you again and take care!

“ Wonderful Guide! Highly Recommended! ”

Kahoko was great to work with and very thoughtful in organizing our tour. She is a wealth of information and shared great insight, facts, and knowledge about Tokyo and all the landmarks we visited. I was exhausted from jet lag and she was flexible making last minute suggestions on easy places to see. Kahoko was very professional and we enjoyed her tour very much. I would highly recommend!!


Thank you very much for an encouraging review! For myself , lack of sleep is toughest thing to bear. Maybe, you had a great time with your sister and dad after that. For now, you must be having a big and happiest family gathering. Just imagining the scene makes me warm. I wish you a happy holidays. Thank you again and take care!

“ Introducing an absolutely splendid guide - ”

Kahoko was our guide for a 7 hour personalized walking tour of Tokyo in late November. We recommend her unconditionally as an outstanding, highly qualified and gracious professional with very strong language and communication skills. If we had more time, we would have welcomed adding 2 or more days. She was available online to help us design the day before we arrived, and was very responsive throughout the day as new ideas arose for visits. She is extremely knowledgeable on many fronts. She can speak thoughtfully and authoritatively about cultural and historical matters, art and architecture, social and demographic matters and probably much more than we could address in a long day (which measured 20,000+ steps on her “fitbit.”) She kindly addressed and assisted us on many practical qu... read more


Thank you very much for the warm and thoughtful review! It was highly encouraging for me. I had a great time with two of you. You are real cosmopolitans with fair and broad perspectives. I was able to learn so many things from you even in casual conversations. That gave me another motivation to keep studying. I wish I could have spent more time with you. Please come back to Tokyo someday soon. I am here and waiting for you! Thank you again and take care!
