“ Tokyo one day trip ”

Kahoko was an excellent guide, very professional and knowledgeable. She went over and beyond and took care of us well and gave up historical details of the sites visited and even spent a couple of extra hours beyond the time we had contracted her services for . Will definitely recommend her as a personal guide in and around Tokyo


Thank you very much for the kind review! I had such fabulous time with cheerful, energetic and intelligent people on the tour. Also, I was really impressed with your mutual families' relationship. I think it's rare and precious, would be a treasure for parents and children in the future. I hope you will come back to Japan someday soon. Thank you again and take care doc.

“ Excelent day in Nikko ”

Kahoko is very organized, knowledgeable, and a great guide. She booked our taxi for the day and made arrangements for our lunch, the driver was ver kind and took us twice to Kegon falls because the first time it was misty. Lunch at a traditional Japanese restaurant was delicious! We really enjoyed our day with Kahoko.


Thank you very much for the sweet review! I really appreciate your tolerance under the bad weather. You all were cheerful and happy. I wonder how your Kamakura tour was like. I wish I could have been together there.. I just hope your rest of the time in Japan will be enjoyable. Thank you again and take care!

“ Fantastic experience ”

What a fantastic way to start our stay in Tokyo ! Kahoko was the perfect guide through the day, taking us from east to north and south, helping us find our way and understand this great city and the Japanese culture a little better. Thank you so much for kickstarting our trip in Japan in such a unforgettable way !


Thank you very much for the kind review! I had such a great time with a sweet family. Now it's time for your adventure. I hope you will fully enjoy your precious time together. Thanks to you, I am missing Paris. I will definitely visit there again. Thank you again and take care!

“ Very nice day in Kamakura! ”

Kahoko picked me up at my hotel and this was extremely helpful because I had limited experience using Tokyo public transit. She is a very knowledgeable person and we were able to communicate well using English. Kahoko shared cultural information with me about the difference between a temple and a shrine; she also shared helpful information about the history of Shintoism and Buddhism and how they eventually merged. We visited several temples and shrines in Kamakura but the highlight of the day for me was the restaurant she took us to for lunch. It was so delightful (best rice i have ever had!) and I really enjoyed our conversation and being able to talk about our different countries and politics. We also had a little time for shopping. I accidentally left my umbrella in the taxi and she h... read more


Thank you for the kind review! I had such a lovely time with you in Kamakura even though the weather was not that good. You were always ready to enjoy every site. Your smiles and wows made me happy for a whole day. Also I learned so many things from you about the USA now : politics, people's feelings, or even trend. As you are getting used to Japan this time, please come back to Japan with your partner next time. Thank you again and take care!
