“ Fantastic tour! ”

Kahoko did a fantastic job and was very friendly. Could not imagine touring Tokyo without her help! We got to see all the sites we set out to see in one day and she was very knowledgeable in giving us information about each attraction and the area. Had a wonderful Tokyo! Thank you Kahoko!


Thank you for the quick and sweet review! I had such a great time with you all. I was wondering how your today's adventure was like. I suppose full of laughter thanks to your husband. I hope your rest of journey happy and safe. Thank you again and take care!

“ A Wonderful Day with Kahoko ”

We booked an 8 hour tour with Kahoko, and she was the most genuinely kind and knowledgeable guide ever. She was always so helpful with helping my in laws find seats on the trains and was always on the look out for elevator options, instead of stairs, so that they wouldn't have to walk as much. She also took us to our favorite restaurant for lunch, and the food was amazing, and the view was incredible. I highly recommend Kahoko!


Thank you for the sweet review! You've survived in such a record coldness in Hokkaido! I believe it was very tough for Californians. Anyway, I had a memorable and heartwarming time with you all. You're making terrific family! I hope you will fully enjoy your rest our time in Tokyo. Thank you again and take care!
