Kahoko was everything we hoped for. Punctual, polite, informative, energetic and flexible.


Thank you for a sweet review! I was so encouraged. It was such a great time with you. I hope you'll have a wonderful moment in Kyoto a well. Please come back to Tokyo with your children someday. I will be a good nanny for them. Thank you again and stay beautiful.

“ Unforgetable days with a special guide!!! ”

We were very pleased to have Kahoko as our guide. She managed to balance our day and a half tour in a very agreable way. We strongly recommend her services Rebeca and Albert Lisbona


Thank you very much for a kind review! I really had a great time with two of you. After busy and tough two days, you must have kind of relaxing time. Anyway, you know how to enjoy the time wherever you are, I believe. I hope your anniversary tour be a memorable and exciting one. Please come back to Tokyo again! Take care.

“ Amazing Kahoko ”

We had an amazing time touring Tokyo with Kahoko. My husband, three children and I were at the end of our holiday when we met with Kahoko. The kids were exhausted and tired of sight-seeing. Kahoko was incredibly patient and creative with our itinerary. We visited beautiful Naka Meguru, Yanaka, Shibuya and Shinjuku. These were areas we had left to discover. She helped select fabulous restaurants and searched tirelessly for peach candy for my children. She was patient, professional, punctual, interesting, happy and lovely to be around. I would highly recommend hiring Kahoko if you are going to Tokyo.


Thank you for the sweetest review ! I really appreciate it that you were so cooperative and cheerfull even though you must have been totally exhausted with long travel over Japan. By now, I believe you are relaxing at home. Still, unlike other family members, their mom or wife is getting busy from the moment back home . Though I know you are an incredibly capable and energetic lady, I hope you take a good rest and best care of yourself. By the way,you and Craig are making such a terrific couple! Please stay sweet, cool and fit as you are now . I am looking forward to seeing you again !

“ Excellent Day Out - Amazing Japanese Home Experience ”

Super easy to book and confirm. Kahoko was flexible in terms of the timing of the experience which was much appreciated. She met me wearing a Kimono at the station (!) and I was driven to her house a few minutes away. Such a lovely welcoming family, met both her husband and daughter. Felt right at home, whilst she prepared lunch for all of us! Then we had an amazing Bento-box style lunch, she even prepared without seafood especially for me. So anyone with allergies would be fully catered for. After a delicious lunch, got dressed up in a beautiful summer Kimono/Yukata, I felt like I was getting married or being prepared for a photo shoot - which I was! Once I was fully ready...I was driven off to a local Japanese garden for photos! Afterwards Kahoko prepared an amazing Japanese tea ceremon... read more


Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! We. my husband and daughter, had such a lovely time with a beautiful young lady from the UK. We could know many of up‐to‐date interesting things about your country especially London. Personally , I really enjoyed the stories about your family. Families , in any countries, have similar stories , I thought : new and old, darling but a little annoying. Also you looked beautiful in kimono ! I will put your picture in my front page of the tour as you allowed. I hope you will come back to Tokyo again. I am looking forward to it. Thank you again and Take care.

“ Engaging and Professional Even During Record Heat! ”

Kahoko was wonderful and I highly recommend her services. We will use her again without question. I was traveling with 4 teenagers and she easily modified our tour between the old and new, culture and shopping, all while educating us along the way. She was sweet, funny, forever smiling, and knowledgeable and her English skills were excellent. We learned to use the trains efficiently, not run afoul of Japanese customs, and enjoy very local meals. I have traveled to Japan extensively during my career and was still happy to see Japan through her eyes. An engaging personality that we all thoroughly enjoyed being around. Thank you Kahoko!


Thank you very much for a sweet review ! After an excursion to Hakone, you must have had a little relaxing time by yourselves. Even though our tour was under a sweltering condition , I had such a pleasant time whole through the tour thanks to your walm and cooperative attitude. Also I can tell you are a very fortunate father to have a pair of wonderful children . Seeing your casual interactions made me happy because I could see real mutual affection there. I hope you will enjoy your rest of tour safely and happily. Thank you again and take care !
