“ Professional and organized and VERY helpful ”

Kahoko has great communication skills and wonderful tour guide skills. She not only helped us plan how we would schedule our tour day with her. She gave us wonderful suggestions of what to do on our own, how to navigate the subway, etc. She is a perfect professional and I would highly recommend Kahoko. THANKS Kahoko. You're the BEST.

KAHOKO:

Thank you for the kind review! It is really encouraging for me. Your relationship is wonderful. Having someone to travel with can make your time even more enjoyable. I am glad to know you coming back home safely. I hope you merry Christmas ! Take care.

“ Rain didn’t stop us! ”

Despite rainy weather, Kahoko gave us a great half day tour. She was flexible about start time and meeting location and worked with us to make sure we saw everything we wanted to during our tour. Kahoko provided the perfect amount of cultural/historical information and useful tips, and wasn’t overbearing or too chatty. The tour was wonderful!

KAHOKO:

Thank you for the kind review . I really appreciate your cooperation and spontaneity for my mom-like suggestions under rain. I am sure you had a great time in the rest of trip. If you have a chance to come back to Tokyo with kids , you can count on because I am kind of a good nanny. Thank you again, and take care!

“ The best tour guide ever. ”

Kahoko treated my wife and I like family immediately. There was no shortage of smiling and laughter and so much care. We booked 5 hours with her and took us to places that interested us such as pop culture and unique and hip areas. If it wasn’t for her, we would have spent so much time just figuring out the transportation with the metro instead of seeing so much of Tokyo. We highly recommend Kahoko and we hope to see her again the next time we are in Tokyo.

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review ! I just enjoyed every minute with such a terrific couple like you. My heart was warmed just to see you smile each other. Also better understanding about your culture and situations was meaningful for me. I hope you will enjoy a joyful time in Kyoto. Please come back to Tokyo some day!

“ An Amazing Fall Day In Nikko ”

Kahoko was an amazing guide for our family! She was so well organized and friendly! We were able to see so much in Nikko because she had everything planned out so well! Her English is excellent! If you want to have an amazing time exploring in the Tokyo area and surrounds; I can highly recommend Kahoko!

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the sweet review ! That encouraged me very much. I had such a lovely day with you. The autumn leaves were so beautiful even for a guide's eyes. Also I didn't know there live rare animals near famous Kegon waterfall . I had many interesting experiences thanks to you. I hope you a happy Thanksgiving and marry Christmas. Gerald, I am waiting for you coming back to Tokyo ! Thank you again and take care !

“ Very helpful and kind ”

Kahoko was very accommodating, kind and conscientious about making sure we had a good experience. She even split our day tour into two half days because our first day was pouring with rain and it would have been terrible to spend all day getting wet. But she took the time to help us get our transit passes and familiarize us with the metro and trains on the first day which helped us get more comfortable with our first time in Asia. The next day the weather cleared so we were able to enjoy a variety of sites. She even found a 100% buckwheat Soba noodle restaurant (to accommodate a wheat intolerance) which we later visited and had an amazing dinner. We never would have found it without her since the part that mentioned 100% buckwheat was all in Japanese. She really helped get us comfortable ... read more

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review ! That was really encouraging for me. I really appreciated your tolerance and cooperation under that terrible weather. I am so happy to know you having tried 100 % soba noodles . As you were caring each others very much , I believe your rest of journey was such memorable one. I hope you will have chance to come back to Tokyo someday. Please stay fit, sweet , and happy. Thank you again and take care !
