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.
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 !
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.
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 !
My granddaughter and I have now returned to the US after a wonderful trip to Tokyo! We saw so much, learned so much, and had a totally wonderful adventure, and Kahoko was a major contributor to this wonderful experience for the two of us. Her willingness to share information about everyday life and Japanese culture as well as recommendations for activities and the best local logistics were incredibly helpful. And the sushi experience and tea ceremony at her home were highlights of our trip. Kahoko was a pleasure to be with in every way!
Thank you very much for your time and trouble again. I had such a great time with you ! You were totally open to our culture, food ,and people. I remember you were enjoying conversation with a Japanese man in a Metro station . I believe your open-minded attitude gives your relatives or friends a lot of good influence . Even to me ! I'd like to follow you myself when I become someone's grandmother , who is positive, tough and tolerant. I hope you come back to Tokyo again with other grandchildren as you have plenty. Thank you again and take care.
Kahoko is a lovely woman whose care for our well being was obvious. We were a group of 6 and she did a great job guiding us through the streets, the attractions and telling us about the history and culture which we came to Japan to learn. Communication with Kahoko prior to the trip was easy. She suggested daily itineraries and was happy to accommodate our suggestions. Kahoko's English is excellent and we communication was easy and pleasant.
Thank you for a kind review ! I had such a pleasant time with terrific couples. I was impressed with your relationship : caring and understanding each other. Also I could learn a lot about your culture . As they were all new for me, it was very interesting to listen to various aspects of them from different people. I just hope your rest of days in Japan safe, happy, and memorable. Thank you again, and take care !
Thank you for a unique review ! I remember you said you seldom write reviews. So I even more appreciate it. Also please say hello to your amazing wife for me . I like her very much ! Please come back to Tokyo some day soon. Thank you again and take care ！
We had seen the highlights of Tokyo on a prior tour so we asked Kahoko to provide us a more authentic, off the beaten track experience and that is exactly what she did! Wonderful little restaurants, peaceful parks, an amazing graveyard, an incredible museum, a great open market and the shimbbashi crossing experience we had such an amazing day. She also helped us plan out itineraries for two days on our own. It was a pleasure planning the tour in advance by email, Kahoko had great ideas and did an amazing amount of research for us, she is a wonderful communicator. We feel so lucky that Kahoko was our guide, you will too!
Thank you very much for a sweet and encouraging review ! It was such a pleasant tour because you were all getting along and caring for each others . The tour was full of laughter. I was happy enough just seeing you. Happy people have a power to make others. So I simply enjoyed every moment with you ! Please come back to Tokyo some day soon. i hope you stay happy and healthy. Thank you again and take care !
Kahoko was an excellent tour guide. She had everything planned out She accommodated our changes to the plan Her English was. Excellent
Thank you for a kind review, doc. Even though I couldn't do anything much for you, I had a great time with terrific father and daughters . I was amazed with your patience and understanding for their interests. I wonder how you can manage several official and private roles . Definitely you inspired me a lot. Thank you and take care !
Our experience was just that, an amazing Experience. We customized our time together by having her pick us up and helps us with train travel since we have never been to Tokyo before. She gave us lessons on the the train and made us very comfortable. The train ride was a fun time itself for us and our kids. She was so nice and accommodating to our requests. We just loved visiting her town and home and she made us feel so welcome. From the Kimono wearing and picture taking in the park, to an authentic tea ceremony and home style sushi lunch. She went out of her way to make sure our little girl had fun and was a part of the experience. When we are in town again, we will be using her for our guide needs. We'd recommend her and her tours to anyone, whether first time or many times t... read more
Thank you for a sweetest review ! It was really encouraging for me. I had a great time with a happy family like you. Your daughter is one of the most adorable and well-behaved six-year-old I have ever met. And her partners are making such a terrific couple. I simply enjoyed every moment seeing your warm relationship.Please come back to Tokyo some day soon .There are more to see . I am looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you again and take care.
We arranged a private tour with Kahoko for two adults and two kids (ages 4 years and 3 months). Given the age of our kids, we knew we would need to bring our stroller with us. In advance of our tour, Kahoko located all the elevators in the subway stations so that we could travel with our stroller. She even pushed the stroller with one hand while she held an umbrella in her other hand as we explored some of the sites. And she helped hold our baby during lunch time so we could all get something to eat. Our whole group had a very positive experience thanks to Kahoko.
Thank you for a kind review ! I had a good time with you even though the weather was not so good unfortunately. Your way of talking to your children was always calm and gentle . I was so impressed . They were both amazingly well‐behaved. I will never forget your daughter´s happy face when she was told to go to Tokyo Disney sea next day. You must have had such a great time there. Please come back to Tokyo some day soon. Also,you will work from August again, right? Please take care.of yourself. Thank you!
I would highly recommend Kahoko as she was so lovely, helpful and knowledgeable! We really enjoyed our day with her as she made it a great experience! I will also mention that she is an English teacher, so is a very good communicator. Overall, I thought she was one of the better guides I have had on my travels and definitely deserves all of the great reviews she has received!
Thank you for the sweetest review ! It encouraged and motivated me a lot . I enjoyed every moment with you . You were making a perfect team : a polite and promising young man, his thoughtful and tough grandmother, and gentle and gorgeous aunt ! You really remind me of the importance of family. please do come back to Tokyo someday. Until then, stay cool and beautiful. Thank you again and take care !
Kahoko was a wonderful tour guide. My husband and I had a 11 hour layover in Tokyo on our way home. Prior to meeting up she gave us all the tips on how to navigate the airport and what train to take into the city. Once we got there she gave us a fantastic tour of the city, we hit up spots all over town! We could not believe how well organized she was, it was incredible. If you have the chance do your self a favor and book with Kahoko.
Thank you very much for a wonderful review ! I was so encouraged. I had a really lovely day with such a terrific couple like you even though we had such a hectic schedule . You were so helpful and acceptable. Please come back to Tokyo some day. Thank you again and take care.
Kahoko was excellent. We had a fabulous day seeing all the best sights in Tokyo. She made getting around a huge city manageable. There is no way we could have seen all the great sights on our own, let alone in one day. Kahoko knows Tokyo really well and got us around the city through the Metro system very efficiently. Kahoko speaks English well (teaches English part-time). She is very personable and we had a lot of fun spending the day with her. Thank you Kahoko!
Thank you very much for a kind review ! After an unexpected accident, you must have been down on the day. Still you were very open to my any suggestions and ready to enjoy the tour. It was very helpful. I simply enjoyed the time with you. I learned a lot from you at the same time. You are making such a terrific couple ! Please come back to Tokyo some day soon. Next time longer stay , maybe. Thank you again and take care.
We had a fantastic full day in Tokyo with Kahoko. Her English is excellent, but most importantly she is such a lovely person to be with and very knowledgeable on many different topics. We managed to cover quite a few places during our time with Kahoko, as she took us not only to some of the touristic sites but also away from the beaten tracks. The suggestions she gave at the end of the day helped us to visit other nice places in the days thereafter. We had a fun time, saw a lot and would certainly go out with her on a next trip to Tokyo. A really great day with a very nice person. A warm thanks, Frank and Hermke.
Thank you very much for a wonderful review ! I was so encouraged with ii. I just enjoyed every moment with you because you were such a terrific couple. Actually, I felt like being a little more gentle to my husband myself after the tour with you. He must have been very happy, thanks to you. I was wondering how your rest of the tour was like. I believe you had a great time. I do hope you stay happy and sweet. Please come back to Tokyo for me and my husband (！). Thank you again and take care,
We had a wonderful day with Kahoko. She understood our needs and was very flexible throughout the day. We would never have been able to navigate the subway system without her guidance. She was very kind and knowledgeable and made our first day in Tokyo most memorable . Thankyou. Esther
Thank you for a kind review ! I wonder how your rest of Tokyo stay is going . As your schedule is kind of lenient , maybe you are enjoying on your own pace. I hope your good luck for weather. Even under a bad weather, I am sure you know how to find something fun. Please enjoy !
Our Tokyo Day Tour with Kahoko was wonderful. We had a fun time touring the Tsujiki Market and Asakusa. Kahoko speaks fluent English. She was courteous and accommodation. Every item we requested were answered and happened. She was very capable and went out of her way to help us. If we come back to visit Tokyo again, we would not hesitate to have Kahoko as our Guide.
Thank you very much for your time and trouble ! You have already given me a warm and kind emails ! I was so encouraged with them. I had a really good time with you on the day. Please come back to Tokyo some day soon. I am looking forward to seeing you again.
We had two half days with Kahoolawe. As well as showing us around Tokyo she was wonderfully helpful with all our queries. She assisted us to buy Shinkansen tickets and to validate JR passes. Nothing was too much trouble for her. We enjoyed her company and highly recommend her.
Thank you very much for a kind review ! I had a great time with such a energetic ladies. Especially, off the beaten Yanaka was interesting even though I visit there so often. As you are very open to try something new from custom to food, I believe you will enjoy the rest of the tour very much. Thank you again and take care ！
We will always look back to this wonderful experience. We would recommend her to our friends and colleagues who wish to experience Japanese culture and hospitality. Upon finding out that I have a physical disability, she and her husband even went the extra mile to assist me.
Thank you very much for a kind review ! It was a great pleasure to have welcomed guests like you to our place. We were highly impressed with your intelligence and challenging spirit . I wonder how your rest of stay in Tokyo like. i hope you fully enjoyd every moment. Please come back to Tokyo some day soon as Philippine is not so far from Japan, Thank you again and Take care,
Hohoko was very knowledgeable, flexible. And pleasant to be with. We spent 8 hours with her out first day in Tokyo, and we're able to go out our own the next day in comfort..
Thank you very much for a kind review ! I had a really good time with energetic and knowledgeable ladies. I was really impressed with your challenging spirit and perfect teamwork. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your journey. Thank you again and take care !
Kahoko met us at our hotel and introduced us to the huge and complex Tokyo subway system . This was vitally important for our 6 day stay and we were quickly travelling to all the sights we wanted to see. Kahoko took us to the large park at Ueneo where saw children competing in a dance competion and people enjoying a day off in the sunshine and eating street food, the more human face of Tokyo
Thank you very much for a nice review! How was your rest of the adventure like? As you are Londoners, I believe you would have got used to it. I had a very good time with you and learned a lot from you. Thank you again aad take care!
We spent 4 well-paced and interesting hours with Kahoko, visiting shrines, temples and gardens. She is experienced, linguistically and culturally fluent in American English, warm, engaging, and very knowledgeable. We visited some well-known shrines and temples, plus an extraordinary garden we'd have never found on our own.
Thank you very much for a kind review ! I had such a pleasant time with an terrific and intelligent couple. I was able to learn a lot from two of you during the tour. I really enjoyed every moment. There are more to see in Tokyo , please come back again to visit off the beaten track with me. Thank you again and take care, professor.
Kahoko was a marvelous guide. She showed us the highlights of Tokyo taking special care to point out transportation details and the best ways to get around. She was knowledgable, kind, and patient. I would recommend her guide serve to anyone. THANKS KAHOKO!!
Thank you very much for a kind review How is your rest of the tour going ? You could try some fresh sushi in Tsukiji fish market ? I hope you could. I had such a good time with you. My only concern is you might hit some low places with your head because you are the tallest guest I have ever had. Please have a wonderful time in Japan!
I was shocked to hear we had walked almost nine miles on our day tour of Tokyo. So much to see and do. Kahoko started our tour at the fish market, which was fascinating. We visited temples and shrines and had lunch in a wonderful local restaurant. We saw views and street scenes it would have been impossible to see on our own without Kahoko. She was fantastic, and we only wished we could have stayed longer to discover more of this great city.
Thank you for a kind review！ Sorry to have you walked so long ! Still, it might have been a good combination , a comfortable relaxing cruise and a little hectic walking tour. I myself had a great time with you who had different nationality and culture. I think you are making a terrific couple. I wish I had a husband of a good cook as I just have one of a good eater. Please come back to Japan some day. Until them, I hope you stay pretty and healthy. Take care.
We had two days of personal tour and our guide Kahoko brought made it memorable by cheerfully packing in everything feasible. We saw the blooming cherry blossoms both during the day and lit up in the evening lights, walked through Tokyo and travelled extensively on the subway. The temples, quaint eating joints, local sweet delicacies, gardens, river cruise, transversing through shopping areas on a budget with those with no budgets!! The weather played along with sunny clear days allowing us to make most of the two days. Kahoko had devised an itinerary to suit our varied choices, history, old town area v/s new centers, culture, food habits, interesting new eating places- even managing to interchange plans within those two days to suit our weary feet. Her cheerful disposition, ex... read more
Thank you very much for the kindest review ! It was too much for me because I just spend a lovely time with a terrific couple under a perfect sunny day. Your charming wife´s bright smile attracted me at the first moment we met, She is cheerful , warm, and ready to enjoy everything. Seeing you careing each other made me happy. Maybe I will be a little more sweet to my husband. You seem to be such a hard‐working business man. If you get tired and feel like travelling, please come back to Tokyo again. This time we could make more relaxing and off the beaten track. I am looking forward to it . Thank you again and Take care.
We had a wonderful day in Kamakura. Kahoko met us at our hotel and escorted us, by train and tram to see the Great Buddha, the bamboo forest and several temples in Kamakura - as well as choosing a great place for lunch. Kahoko spoke very good English, and had a sense of humour. She was very flexible with our plans for the day - and together with great weather - gave us the perfect day trip from Tokyo
Thank you very much for a kind review ! It´s a great honour to get one from a successful playwrite. I simply enjoyed every moment with you all on a lovely day. I learned lots of things from you on the day. Now I can tell my future guest , "Look at those beautiful dapples on the moss."( is it OK?) I do hope your play will entertain so many people on the planet. Please come back to Tokyo some day soon !
I highly recommend Kahoko san she was energetic, polite, knowledgeable and was able to provide a great service to my family. In our group of seven we were travelling with my elderly parents and two young adults. My moms has some mobility issues while the two younger adults moved at a faster pace. Given our diverse group Kahoko san was able to keep everyone engaged and was extremely thoughtful towards my parents and even gave them a small gift. We did have an agenda but she quickly adapted to our requests and also was quick to find us a Very good place to have lunch. I would highly recommend Kahoko san and would use her services again.
Thank you very much for the kindest review! I am happy to hear from you. I was wondering how the rest of your trip like . You ate good Ramen ? I was impressed with your family´s relationship : so close, so warm, so much laughter. You are making such a terrific family. I felt warm just see you laughing each other. If you have a chance, please come back to Tokyo. I will take you to some off the beaten track. Thank you again and take care!
Kahoko was an amazing guide. Very patient and knowledgeable of the history. She is always trying to find the best spots for taking the most amazing pictures. We definitely love our tour with her and she made us fall in love with Tokyo. 100% recommend it!
Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! Just seeing two of you, I became warm and happy for two days. You are making such a terrific couple and of course a family as well.I hope you will have a relaxing time in Niseko. Please come back to Tokyo as there are more places to visit. Take care and stay sweet !
Loved my half day tour with Kahoko. She met me at my hotel and we were off on our adventure. I loved how she geared our pace towards me. I like to move fast and see as much as possible. I saw so many highlights in just 3 hours - she teally takes pride in guiding her guests.
Thank you very much for a kind review! I was wondering how your walking tour on the next day was like. As it was a beautiful day , you must have a terrific time. Also you enjoyed tasty food in Hongkong and Singapore, didn't you? Good for you! Please come back to Tokyo some day soon . Thank you again and take care.
We wanted to start our visit to Tokyo with a knowledgable guide to show us the highlights of the city. Kahoko provided a highlight-filled day and more. Before the trip started, she reached out to learn more about what we wanted to see. We had a full day planned but, after we started, Kahoko was able to make modifications to our itinerary based on what we found more interesting - this was wonderful and allowed us to see some of the regular life in Tokyo. It was a long day, but so worth the tired feet!
Thank you very much for a kind review！I was wondering how your rest of the tour was like. Your aunt enjoyed Suiseki exhibition? I had a great time and a long walk(sorry!). I hope you will come back to Japan not on business but for fun again. Thank you again and take care.
Being new to this dynamic modern city, to us Kahoko has opened a varied Tokyo within one day: tsukiji fishmarket, kabukika theatre,asakusa temple,ginza, meji jingu shrine, harajuku, omote sando, museums,good speed, interesting info, nice noodlerestaurant, scramble crossing, foodcourts, modern architecture, complex transportation etc. etc.
Thank you for a kind‐hearted review! I didnt suppose to have one from you because I led you a 10k walk under a terrible snowy weather! I just hope it didnt leave some bad effect in your bodies.Maybe Hawaii´s nice breeze will soothe you. Thank you again and take care!
Kahoko was most informative and very accommodating and flexible for our needs and requests- we enjoyed our time together immensly and we had a full day enjoying Tokyo...many thanks Kahoko for your advise and guidance!
Thank you for a kind review ! I had a really pleasant time with such a terrific couple of same generation with me. As you are frequent travellers, you soon got hung of thing about Tokyo's complex transportation systems.I believe you moved around freely on your own. I hope you come back to Tokyo someday soon. Thank you again and take care.
We are incredibly happy and lucky that we booked our tour with Kahoko. She knows Tokyo like the back of her hand! We trusted her to put together a one-day itinerary, and the entire day exceeded our expectations. She is organized, generous, smart, and fun to talk to. It felt like we were visiting the city with a friend, not just a tour guide. She was sensitive to our needs, making sure we had enough bathroom and food breaks whenever we needed it. We honestly could not have done a one-day tour of Tokyo on our own - but with Kahoko, we were navigating the trains, tourist spots like a pro! As she got to know us better throughout the day, she adjusted our transit a little bit in order to add in neighborhoods that she knew we would like based on our interests. We are major foodies, and she delig... read more
Thank you for the sweetest review ! You are definitely one of my unforgettable guests. Our tour was the longest, toughest, but happiest one that I have ever had. Just seeing you smiling each other, you shared me your happiness. You were always open to anything about our culture and ready to enjoy every elements. I think you should come back to Japan some day soon to please me. Actually , thanks to you,I have decided to visit Sea Ranch on my trip next year.Thank you again, and take care！
Kahoko was a very informative guide who was happy to accommodate the interests of our family within the tour options we had selected. Thank you, Kahoko, for an excellent introduction to one of the world's great cities!
Thank you for a kind review ! I know you are so busy with your job so all the more grateful for me. How is your studious boy doing ? I was so impressed with him. I hope you will come back to Tokyo again some day soon to show me his growth. Thank you again and take care.
Kahoko was awesome! We had a 10 hour layover with 7 hours to spend checking out Tokyo. She met us at the airport and arranged everything! Train ride to town, metro to old town, taxi’s & even a boat ride. Took us to a cool sushi bar, a Ramen house, temples & lots of street markets. It was our time in Tokyo & im sure we got to see & do so much more with her guidance than if we tried to figure it out ourselves. I highly recommend this and Kahoko!
Thank you for a kind review ！ I had a hectic but very exciting day with you . It was good to be able to show you a variety of elements of Tokyo. Also I could learn so much from you about your culture, especially horses and interesting stories of your trip , Probably,two of you are so busy to catch up. Please take care and come back to Japan some day soon. Thank you ！
Kahoko is a very personable and considerate guide, our tour with her was a fantastic introduction to Tokyo. She goes above and beyond to tailor the tour to exactly what you want to see, and is very knowledgable about the history and culture of Japan. We highly recommend her tour, especially if you are new to Tokyo!
Thank you for a kind review ! You were so acceptable and ready to enjoy every element of our country. I am sure you were walking around places easily on your own for the rest of your time in Japan. I was lucky enough to end my last tour of the year with a nice couple like you. Please come back to Japan in different season next time. Thank you again and Take care.
What more could you ask for in a tour guide? We strongly recommend booking Kahoko's "as you like" tour; she was able to accommodate our requests as well as add in suggestions of her own. Whenever our group of 6 had a question, she was able to answer. Thanks again, Kahoko!
Thank you for a sweet review ! I was wondering how your rest of your tour was like. You must have enjoyed a relaxing time in Hakone . You have such a terrific family ! You ate a lot, shopped a lot , and laughed a lot. I enjoyed every moment with you , myself . Please come back to Tokyo some day soon. Thank you again, and Merry Christmas to you all.
We had a great day in Tokyo with Kahoko. It is not easy traveling with two young kids. Kahoko took care of us down to the very little details like bringing tissue and candy to keep the boys going. She took the extra mile of walking us out to the station and making sure we know how to find the dinner spots we wanted to go to before she left. Definitely worth booking especially on your first day in the city so you can get some tips on things to do and getting around for the rest of your stay.
Thank you for a sweet review ! I am glad it is another beautiful day, you might be able to see magnificent Mt. Fuji . I hope you will enjoy the rest of your time in Japan. I wish you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year！
Kahoko has been an amazing tour guide. My family changed our meeting place the last minute but it was not a problem for Kahoko. She also let us enjoy the food and places that we see and adjusted the itinerary as we go along. The next time the you come to Tokyo, I highly recommend Kahoko. Thank you Kahoko!
Thank you for a kind review! I was wondering how was your rest of the stay like. Maybe exciting ? In Tokyo , there are even more places to visit. As Philippine is pretty close to Japan, please come back to Tokyo some day soon. Thank you again and take care ！
When we met Kahoko at the hotel lobby, we were impressed with her Japanese outfit. She was simply looking elegant with the way she carried herself. She spoke English quite well with a smile and confidence. She assisted us in wearing our Kimono which took several minutes with all the trimmings we have to wear one over the other. After the walk in the beautiful garden with our outfit, she demonstrated a tea ceremony explaining every detail. Interesting in fact. She served a very good lunch after. We enjoyed every moment with her from the start to the end. We got to meet her husband too who was equally amiable. She and husband made our day!!! We are happy we booked this tour!
Thank you for a nice review ! It was a great day with such a terrific couple. I was lucky enough to be able to learn about not only Philippines but also France. It was really interesting ! Moreover, seeing your sweet relationship, caring each other, made me comfortable and happy. As Philippines is only several-hour-flight from Tokyo, I hope you will come back to Tokyo some day soon. Thank you again and take care.
We had an amazing time with Kahoko!! We had a group of 4 friends visiting Tokyo for a few days and there were a few specific areas we really wanted to see. Even though the areas are further apart, Kahoko was very accommodating and helped us plan a terrific itinerary. We enjoyed every minute we had with her. She also made great suggestions on where to take a rest and all the nice bathrooms along the tour route. ;) THANK YOU Kahoko for making our Tokyo tour so memorable. We hope to use your service again the next time we visit Tokyo! Patti
Thank you for a sweet review ! I have been wondering how was your rest of the tour like . Maybe full of fun, laughter and excitement . While I was with you , I came to go travelling with my own friends. You are all intelligent and energetic still charming . I believe you are always full throttle in your daily lives. If you get too tired, please come back to Tokyo . Tokyo has many more places to go to . I hope you a best wishes for holidays.
After 5 unforgettable days in Tokyo, my husband and I have not stopped talking about Kahoko and how much we miss her!Tokyo is an amazing beautiful city, but with the company of Kahoko every place became even more special!! She is an outstanding very knowledgeable guide and, at the same time, an exceptional human being. An hour after meeting her, we felt like we had known her all our lives!! She takes care of every single detail and puts lots of love into her job!! We like to travel a lot and we have hired guides in many places. There are guides and there is Kahoko!!! With her we knew that we had made a friend to keep! Thanks to her we will always keep Tokyo in a very special place in our heart!! We recommend Kahoko 100%!!!!!!!
Thank you for the sweetest review . Two of you are definitely the most memorable guests I have ever had. I will never forget every moment we were together. Thanks to you, Costa Rica became a very close country for me . I could learn so many things from you , and on the other hand, I wanted to show you any aspects of Tokyo as much as I could. Now you are in Kyoto, my favorite city. I just hope your rest of the journey will be filled with joy and excitement. You must come back to Tokyo someday soon. Next time I would like to assist whole of your trip ; in case of spring it will be possible because of spring vacation. Please say hello to beautiful Kyoto for me . Enjoy！ Thank you again and take care !
My wife and I arrived for our honeymoon and we had setup to meet Kahoko the following morning for a few hours around the city. She met us at our hotel and our adventure began! Great time and extremely nice guide. She helped us get a Sucia card and explained all the places we visited. Highly recommend Kahoko if you want a guide in Tokyo!
Thank you for a kind review! It was an honor for me to be with you on your memorable honeymoon. I believe you had such a great time in the rest of your trip. I hope you come back to Tokyo someday , maybe with children? Thank you again, and take care.
Cannot have asked for a better guide. Well prepared and went that extra mile when asked. Would recommend Kah to anyone. She took us to traditional places which gave us a much better an interedting look at tokyo . Well done and thanks. John
Thank you for a kind review ! As you were the first guests from New Zealand , I was able to learn a lot about your country and culture. Also I appreciate your patience under your painful right knee. I just hope you will get well soon , and best luck for your precious Nivo. Please come back to Tokyo in the best condition . Thank you again and take care !
Kahoko is a very friendly and professional guide. Excellent pre-trip communication and itinerary. She is very organized but flexible as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Kahoko and would do it again.
Thank you so much for a nice review ! I appreciate you to share your precious time for me. I had such a pleasant day with you even though the weather on the day was not so sweet for us, You are staying in Hakone or next destination ? I just hope the rest of your trip will be safe and enjoyable. Please take care and come back to Tokyo some day soon. いろいろ有り難うございました。 またお会いできるのを願っております。どうぞお元気で！
Though it rained non stop Kahoko guided us by subway, J R train effortlessly around Tokyo. Always with smile. She teaches English and thus speaks and understands well. I highly recommend. All four of us will miss her as we leaves Tokyo.
Thank you for prompt and kind review ! I really appreciate your positiveness and tolerance. I never forget those Californians laughing each others under the stormy rain being totally soaked. I will mention about you to my future guests when it rains. By the way, if you need green seats on tomorrow´s Shinkansen, you need to make a reservation in advance. If you don't care about sitting in regular opened car, you don't have to do anything. I do hope you a safe and pleasant journey. If there is anything I can do for you, anytime. Thank you again , and take care !
Our experience with Kahoko is very good. She has a good command of English and knowledge of the history of the places we visited. There were six of us in our group, and we highly recommend her to my friends who plan to visit Japan specially Kamakura and the neighboring places went to. Thank you Kahoko and thank you Triplelights. Mrs. Concepcion Regino
Thank you for a sweet review . I had such a good time with a happy big family with a longevity gene ! I appreciate your cooperation and kindness even though the place was a little crowded . I hope we could see in next spring again. Thank you again and please take care.
Kahoko was quite gracious & accommodating. Her command of English was very good. We got to see the sights we were interested in, plus some of the local scene that tourists don’t often see. Kahoko was full of energy & a delightful person!
Thank you very much for a sweet review ! I had a great time with two of you even though it was a little challenging tour. I wonder how you enjoy Ginza by yourselves yesterday . I believe you had a great time with lots of pictures ! I hope you a safe and memorable journey. Please come back to Tokyo someday.
Kahoko was an outstanding tour guide for our first trip to Tokyo and Japan. She was so pleasant, easy to be with and always had a smile. We let her know ahead of our arrival what we would like to see and do while in Tokyo. She not only planned those activities but introduced us to the incredible Tokyo subway system. Kahoko brought us to interesting restaurants and introduced us to new foods. She was interesting and knowledgeable and wanted to share her country, it's history, culture and customs with us. We believe she went above and beyond our expectations. We highly recommend Kahoko on your next trip to Tokyo.
Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! You must be relaxing in Hakone now. I still miss two of you because I had such a precious time for good three days with you. I have learned so many hints to live well . Two of you became my goal ; I want be like you do like you in your age myself . You must be sound and happy for me . I know you have full of plannings . Still,if you have any chance , please come back to Tokyo. Thank you again and take care !
Kahoko-san was a great guide. She was very knowledgeable and considerate. It was an interesting tour. She taught me a lot of Japanese culture. In Hamarikyu Garden, she showed the way to drink macha tea in Japanese tradition. She even brought a handkerchief for me knowing paper towel is not widely available in public places in Japan and foreigners from US usually do not bring handkerchiefs. I highly recommend Kahoko-san for any visitor Tokyo.
Thank you so much for a kind review under your busy schedule . I had a very good time with you. I rarely have any opportunities to talk with a person of your generation personally . So it was really interesting for me . I could learn a lot from you and that helped me have a better understanding about your and your country´s circumstances .As you often come to Tokyo , if you need my assistance , anytime. I am looking foreward to seeing you again.
My husband and I were very impressed by our guide, Kahoko. She speaks English beautifully, was very sensitive to our particular interests,and was able to adapt our itinerary to make sure we took advantage of special opportunities then on view such as an exhibit at the National Museum.
Thank you very much for a kind review ！I appreciate you sharing your precious time . I really have a good time with two of you even though it was a limited time . I wonder how your stay in Kyoto is like. You are hiking in Fushimi inari ,maybe? I hope your rest of journey will be safe and pleasant. Thank you again and take care.
We had the pleasure of Kahoko's company for a four hour and three hour tour on consecutive days. Both tours were customised and Kahoko was happy to change plans when we stayed a bit longer at some destinations. Her English was fantastic, and she knowledgeable and very friendly. In addition, on both days she provided additional assistance for us to get to our next destination after the tour. The first day she waited at the station for 20 minutes while we went back to our hotel to change, before accompanying us to another station where we had to catch our connecting train, all in her own time. One of the nicest people I've ever met. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you for a sweet review ! I was wondering how your rest of the trip is like . I had a very good time with two terrific couples. You are all acceptable and ready to enjoy every aspect of different culture even a public bath ! Did the ladies make it there? There are lots of other places to visit in Japan. If you have another chance to visit Japan , please contact me. Regards,
We enjoyed our tour with Kahoko very much. She met us by our train station. We planned our day together. Kahoko explained the Japanese culture, what to do at the temples and shrines. Taught us how to use the metro/train system in Tokyo. She had so much energy and we did a lot of walking! She was very patience with us, since we had to stop several times for my husband to rest and my kids wanting to try different kind of food. Kahoko's english was perfect. We had no problem with our communication. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tour guide.
Thank you for a sweet review ! I had a great time with you all . it was really a foody day, delicious and fun. You are making a terrific family : mama an organizer and other happy and easygoing members. I hope you come back to Japan in some different seasons. Thank you again and take care.
Kahoko was great! Terrific English skills, planned a perfect day with van and driver and lunch, wonderful with kids. I enjoyed our day and conversation. I recommend her highly!
Thank you for a sweet review, professor! I had a great day myself . I really enjoyed that girl´s union. Still , I wish I could have had more time to talk with you about literature , linguistics, and history. I do hope you to come back to Japan someday soon. Thank you again and take care with your knees.
Our plane arrived into Tokyo an hour early...we were already scheduled to begin earlier than usual...at 7AM. When I messaged Kahoko...she met us something the airport at 6...and took us over the bridge and across the moats to the imperial palace...a perfect beginning to a very early morning! Throughout the day, Kahoko added adventures to our trip, and she showed us, in our 12 hour layover in Tokoyo, more of the city, the history, and the culture than we could have ever done on our own. If you only have a day, but want to get two or three days worth of sites, there is no better way than to go with Kahoko. My family of seven are all so grateful, and we couldn't recommend her any more highly!
Thank you very much for a kind review ! You gave me a worth challenging opportunity. Actually I am sure I could learn a lot on that day . I simply appreciated it . Also you were all polite and cooperative . I had nothing in trouble. Still there is one thing I regret : I should have recorded your lecture at Imperial Palace. It would be definitely helpful for me! To give me more lectures, please come back to Japan someday. I am looking foreward to it . Thank you against and take care.
Our family had 4 different tour guides on our trip and Kahoko was by far our favourite. She was lovely, kind, informative, and felt like a part of the family. We truly missed her when we had to say goodbye. You are sure not to miss by selecting Kahoko as your guide!!
Thank you very much for a sweet review ! I really had a terrific time with you all. Your daughters were cheerful and always ready to enjoy the time even heavy rain. I think they are privileged because you are such a supportive and thoughtful mother. And yes , a cool career woman. There are so many other places to visit in Japan. I hope you come back to Japan someday. Thank you again and take care !
Traveling alone can be difficult and, well, lonely. Today, I was blessed with Kahoko for a tour guide because she wasn't just a tour guide, but a companion for the day! We visited two places that I wanted to go: the Sensoji Buddhist Temple and the Meiji Jingu Shrine. We also fit in a wonderful traditional Kiseki meal. I had asked to stop for a meal and asked her to pick something traditional and this lunch was delightful. Kahoko was full of knowledge on this histories of these places and as we talked and she learned about my likes, she suggested little side trips so that I could see different things I didn't know existed. She also explained how to better use the subway system and suggested places for me to go later in my trip. I would recommend any traveler, especially one travelling... read more
Thank you for the sweetest review ! It was too much for me because I simply enjoyed the time with you . All through the tour , you were ready to appreciate every aspect of Japanese history ,culture , and custom. I also learned a lot about the country you live in now. It was helpful because I didn't know well. Maybe you are spending terrific time with your camera now. I hope you will have a great time for the rest of your tour. Please come back to Japan some time soon. Take care .
Kahoko came to the hotel on time, even a little early. Even though we were late, she was patient and calm. She was professional and courteous and tailored the tour to our needs.
Thank you very much for a kind review！ I appreciated it because I know how busy you are. You were the first Egyptian- American for me . So I have learned a lot from you . Thank you again and come back to Tokyo some day ！
Kahoko is a great tour guide. She took us on a tour of Tokyo showed us many different aspects of Japanese lives. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend her.
Thank you for a kind review , captain . It was nice to spend a day with you. I think you are making such a terrific family . I hope Evie will do a good job as a band leader in an upcoming event. Please come back to Tokyo in the near future . Thank you again and Take care.
My family had a wonderful time touring around Tokyo with Kahoko! She was friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. We were able to get a very good sense of daily life in Japan which is what we wanted to experience. It felt like having a good friend take us around Tokyo. We would definitely use her again if we come back to Japan. Thanks for a fantastic experience!
Thank you for a kind review ！ You are making such a terrific family :a tough and reliable dad, nice and elegant mom , and adorable happy children . I really felt happy myself to see you all. Thank you for a great time. Please come back to Tokyo with your family some day. I am looking foreward to seeing you again.
We had a great full-day tour with Kahoko. She was flexible, kind, and easy to work with. We appreciated her knowledge of the area, history of Tokyo, and patience with our toddler. She was very helpful with navigating the public transportation system and even bought our son a treat. We would highly recommend Kahoko as a guide. Thank you for a great experience of Japanese hospitality!
Thank you for a nice review ！ I was wondering how the rest of your stay was going. i remembered the days of my own child-rearing age during the tour: those happy and tough days. I can tell it is worth challenging and fruitful. Go for that and enjoy !
Kahoko took the time to answer all of our questions and customized the tour around what we wanted to see. She was the nicest guide and made sure my wife and I were comfortable at every step. Would use Kahoko again when I come back to Tokyo!
Thank you very much for a nice and quick review ! It was such a pleasure to have shared time on your precious trip .
Kahoko expertly guided me through the labyrinth of Tokyo’s metro system for our day’s excursion to Mt. Takao. First by subway, then train, then cable car and finally we used our own two feet walking on a very civilized paved path to reach our destination. Even though our weather was picture perfect with blue skies and puffy white clouds, Mt. Fuji eluded us from the summit of Mt. Takao. That said, the sheer serenity of this location and the exquisite views make this a very worthwhile tour. Kahoko is a fantastic guide with knowledge of Tokyo and all things Japanese from food to art to architecture to history and culture. So in addition to a great hike, I learned much about Japanese culture – past and present. Thanks Kahoko for a fantastic and fulfilling day!
Thank you very much for a great review ! It was such a grateful and comfortable day for me . That was my first Mt. Takao tour that I didn't have to worry about my guest´s condition . You are really energetic and intellectual person. I really enjoyed every conversation we had . I hope you will have another chance to come to Japan. If you ever have chance to meet Paula , please give her my best regard for me. Thank you agent and take care.
Kahoko greeted us with a warm welcome and had a wonderful day planned out for us beginning to end with walking to the Kabuki theater and fish market, and seeing temples and shrines along the way and boat ride to another city, sharing history past and current concerns, sampling new meals, giving guidance to gift buying ideas and ending with coffee together. This is the best way to see a city especially with a different language. Definitely would invite Kahoko to lead us again.
Thank you for the warmest review ! I had a great day with two of you , from the beginning to the end of relaxing coffee time. I´ve learned so many things from knowledgeable ladies with different culture. It was simply interesting ! I hope you will have another chance to come to Japan in different season. Thank you again and take care.
Kahoko was terrific. Her English is very good. Her informative commentary really added to or enjoyment of all of the sights. She easily adapted to our preferences and went well beyond her commitment in order to accompany us to the location we wanted to visit after our half day tour to make sure that we found it. I would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo.
Thank you for a kind review ! I was wondering how your stay in Oedo Onsen was like. I hope you could have some relaxing and enjoyable time in the end of the journey. Please come back to Japan in cherry blossom season and take good pictures. Thank you again and take care.
I love how patient, gracious and knowledgeable Kahoko is when it pertains to Japan culture, food, and family. We traveled with 4 boys aged 12, 9, 7, 2 and she was very helpful in managing the tour with them. My wife likes Kahoko and we wish we have more time to spend with her. She speaks English very well and very approachable. Highly recommended!
Thank you very much for a sweet review ！Spending a day with your family reminded me of my own days. It was tough but also full of fun and laughter. The period of child rearing is limited , so please take care of yourselves and enjoy! I hope you will come back to Japan some day soon.
Kahoko was delightful. She was very knowledgeable and interesting. We had spent two days in Tokyo prior to meeting Kahoko and had seen many of the major sites. She offered a different perspective on the city and introduced us to places we would not have seen without her. She was flexible. Her English is excellent. Clearly her goal was to ensure we had a beautiful day and she did that very successfully. We cannot say enough good things about her. We would recommend her unhesitatingly. You will be fortunate to have her as your guide.
Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! it was just delightful to have spent a day with a terrific couple like you . You gave me a certain motivation to study more about our history . culture, and politics in a better English . And one thing more to research, good Italian restaurants which offer bolonage spaghetti . Please tell your doc my biggest apologies. I hope you to come back to Japan someday soon . Thank you again and take care.
Kahoko is an excellent tour guide. She has in-depth knowledge of local history so it was a treat to tour with her. She is very friendly, accommodating, and took us to her favorite lunch spot in Yanaka Ginza (soba noddles). We highly recommend Kahoko and would tour with her again.
Thank you very much for the kind review ！ I had such a great day with two of you. I missed San Francisco a lot at the same time. Also I was impressed with your perfect planning ! I was wondering how the Mario cart ride was like. Maybe exciting . Thank you for everything and come back again.
Kahoko San was a great tour guide. She was very timely and knowledgeable of all locations we visited. She spoke very good English and was very confident in her guidance. She actually went above and beyond what was expected of a tourist guide. She had no obligation for helping us carry our shopping bags, but she did. That was very much appreciated. There is no way my husband and I would have enjoyed our visit in Tokyo had it not been for her guidance and the services we received from triple lights. Thank you very much for everything.
Thank you so much for the review ! The same age union was just fun . I had very good time with you for two days. Also, I´ve learned a lot about puggy , American culture and plants from you , and positive thinking or importance of setting goals from Jose. I hope him (and perhaps you , ha ha ) coming back to Japan soon to study real and natural Japanese. I want to talk with him in Japanese next time. Thank you again and take care.
My husband and I had an exceptional day visiting which I believe was the eastside of Tokyo with Kahoko. I had mentioned to Kahoko when first arranging the tour of places we might be interested in seeing, but never having been to Tokyo and so many places on our list I told her the 1 must place to go, Tsukiji Market, and let her take it from there. We had a very well versed tour of the market, got to tour the bustling secondary wholesale area with all the carts zipping around, the outer markets and had lunch at an absolutely wonderful standup sushi bar near the market. She took us through Asakusa, Ginza, and Akiharabara. Ginza was not high on my list but having Kahoko guide us through the Kabuki theater, which lead to conversation about Takarazuka, the basement food area of Mitsukoshi Depart... read more
Thank you for the nice review! I remember all the places and time we shared . We talked a lot, walk a lot, and eat a lot together. You remind me of Hawaiian gentle breeze and people's warmth. Somehow I was able to relax and enjoy the guiding from the beginning with you . Thanks to you , I had a great day myself , and even the familiar tiredness after the tour gave me a sense of satisfaction on that day. I hope you come back to Japan some day soon and share those pleasant time again. Thank you very much.
A++ Kahoko is one of the best tour guides we have encountered. She guided us for one and a half days in Tokyo and one day in Kamakura on either side of a Riviera Travel tour of central Honshu. Her English is excellent and she went out of her way to make sure we had an enjoyable visit. Each morning she met us in our hotel lobby and returned us to the same spot at the end of the day. She taught us how to use the Tokyo subway ticket machines and then how to navigate the subway system. When entering a train she always hurried ahead to find us seats. Without her help we would have wasted at least half of our time getting from place to place. We were able to fit in all of the items on our bucket list not covered by our commercial tour, and then some of her suggestions. We went to some o... read more
Thank you for the sweetest review. You are one of the best guests I've ever had ! I really enjoyed every moment with two of you . I even miss your darling's a little sharp tongue, ha ha. You were always ready to enjoy every aspects of our tree- day tour . That was a great help for me . Also , as you are such a terrific couple of English and American, I was able to learn slight ( ? )difference of two countries' culture ,mindset, way of living and so on. It was so interesting, definitely. Please stay fit and enjoy your trip. Please come back to Japan again, let's go to Miyajima together.
Wow, she's great. I love here, my family loves her. She is a good guide..she speaks english fluently..thank you ms kahoko for the experience especially the authentic japanese restaurant..
Thank you very much for the review ! How was your rest of the tour like ? A lot of screaming , maybe ? You're making such a terrific family , warm and cheerful. I enjoyed every minutes with you. Please come back to Tokyo with different target next time. Thank you again and take care.
We had a fantastic time with Kahoko. Well paced days,great knowledge of the areas visited and easy to converse with. It was like visiting with an old friend. Highly recommended.
Thank you for a sweet and prompt review! Have you already enjoyed Chinese seafood yet ? I really enjoyed every minute with two of you. Please come back to Tokyo again. From your sushi wife. Kahoko.
Kahoko san was very nice and professional guide with whom I spent six hours viewing Tokyo. She planned our route well knowing my wishes but also taking into an account the city constraints like traffic and rush hour. We discussed many aspects of Japan during the tour and she shared me interesting things of Japanise way of living and the society overall. I was very satisfied of the tour and can highly recommend Kahoko as a guide to share highlights of the wonderful city of Tokyo and Japan in general.
Thank you very much for the review. It was a great pleasure to spend a beautiful day with you. I have learned a lot about your country, people and culture. I believe you enjoyed the rest of your stay, a bike tour or any surprise from your husband. You seem to make such a terrific couple. Please come back to Tokyo someday. Thank you again and take care.
Our Tokyo trip was well worth it thanks to Kahoko. We were able to visit and see everything we planned. It was kind of hectic but everything fell into place (even the weather) :) Kahoko was kind enough to accomodate all our requests. Will definitely book Kahoko again on our next family trip to Japan.
Thank you very much for the review！It was great to spend good two days with a big and happy family. A tough and reliable father, a gentle and graceful mother, and adorable children,you are making a beautiful family. I hope to see you soon . Thank you again and take care.
We had a wonderful first day in Tokyo with Kahoko. She was friendly, organized and flexible when we made some adjustments to our very ambitious plan for the day. She was great with our children and even helped us by making a reservation for my husband's birthday dinner. I'm not sure what we would have done for his birthday without her help. She made what could have been a stressful first day in town easy and fun.
Thank you so much for a nice review. Spending a day with you , I remember how tough and worthy parents' business are. You are doing excellently, really. I just hoped the rest of your trip was enjoyable. Please come back to Tokyo someday because you're staying in China for a while , maybe in different season next time. Thank you again and take care, mom and dad .
Kahoko was very prompt setting up arrangements for our tour and was there on time to meet us at the beginning of the day. We had a stroller for our 1 year old so she found elevators to use in the subway wherever we could. She was patient, informative, kind, flexible and helpful with our toddler all day long. We highly recommend her for your tour (especially families!)
Thank you very much for a sweet review ! I had such a great time with three of you. I missed your little prince's adorable smiles and giggles soon after we departed. Maybe you enjoyed dinner with your brother that night . Good for you. Rearing children is a tough but fruitful business, please take care and go for it ! A cheering from Tokyo nanny.
Kahoko is a very gracious guide who speaks excellent english and showed great stamina taking us on an intense day tour in Tokyo that she catered to our specific wishes. She taught us a great deal about local customs, recent history and has great insider tips of special places to see in Tokyo that are not on the usual tourist route (which we greatly appreciated). Arigato gozaimasu Kahoko!
Thank you for a swee review ! To tell the truth , I was a little worried because our tour was kind of tougher than my usual tours. Still , I had a great time with two of you. I was so impressed you being interested in our culture , language, or else. Please come back to Tokyo some day . I will be a better guide so that I can give you a better explanation on your every question. Thank you again and take care. Kahoko
Kahoko was excellent! - organized efficient and so good with my kids (aged 15,14,11) We were visiting for the first time from Chicago. She made sure to touchbase via email and make a plan while understanding my families needs. The night before I emailed her late to ask for her help with JR Pass bookings and she was happy to take time out help us. She even took my kids around Tokyo station while my husband and I stood in line and made our reservations. She was extremely knowledgeable about Tokyo and very easy to talk to. She took family pictures all along the tour for us. Lunch was planned at a restaurant that worked out perfectly for our vegetarian and kid needs! She even took time out to let my kids shop at their favorite store Uniqlo during the tour and still show us all that we w... read more
Thank you so much for a nice review! Also I'm so sorry to answer sol late. Since then, I was wondering if you could find some good guide in Kyoto. In Tokyo, you must have been tired because you had so many thing to do. I just hoped the rest of your trip would go smoothly . I believe your life comes back to normal now , a hectic mother of three children. Please ,please take care of yourself because I know how tough it is. I hope you will come back to Tokyo someday , maybe two of you next time on your anniversary or anything. I'll be ready to guide a matured and relaxing tour for two of you !
Kahoko was very professional. Planned the day very well - specially customized to the mixed ages in our group - two children and one senior. She took us to linch places that accommodates vegetarians and was a pleasure to spend a day with.
Thank you for the nice review , doc. I was wondering how your rest of the tour was. Maybe it was a pleasant one because your family had good relations. I hope you to come back to Japan some day . Could be two of you alone ? Please take care because doctors often neglect their own health. Kahoko
We absolutely LOVED Kahoko!!!! She was awesome!!!! She met us at the airport as we were not confident we could manage on our own. HA! She showed us everything. Well as much as you can see in 10 hours! :-) We would not have had as much fun if we didn't meet her. We will definitely request her again when we return with our children. A++++++++++
Dear Lady Catherine in Chicago. Thank you so much for the sweetest review. Yes ! I had fabulous time with you , myself. You were always ready to challenge , wonder and enjoy during the limited time. I think you are a genius to enjoy a journey. Still , from the moment you landed , you must have been so busy as a mother and wife , I believe. Please take care. I hope you come back to Japan with your family again,and stay pretty !
We arranged for a 1/2 day tour with Kahoko. I had emailed her that we wanted to visit Tsukiji Fish Market, Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings and Shinjuku Gyoen. I let her know that we would be jet-lagged seniors and that we didn't want to have too hectic of a pace. She responded promptly that it this itinerary was very possible. We had a wonderful time with her as she was so personable, professional, and a wealth of information. In a short time, we felt like she had been a long time friend. We not only learned about the sights that we visited, but she pointed out interesting things in our transit. We even learned how to maneuver the transportation system that we felt comfortable traveling around Tokyo on our own. Even though it was early in the season for the cherry blossoms, Kahoko ... read more
Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! It was a great time to spend with you even though it was such a limited time. I wonder how your stay in Okinawa is like. Maybe relaxing and delightful one because there are full of attractions,such as local cooking course , or Cyurauni aquarium. As I am such a San Francisco lover, talking about the place with you was just terrific. I'm sure I'll visit there again. You're planning to come to Japan with your family ! I hope I could meet with you and sweet Naurie then. Take care and do enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan.
Very friendly person. Very knowlegable person about tokyo . Explain me in detail. I very hPpy. I will recommande to my friends. Thanks alot (どうもありがとうございました)
Thank you very much for the review. Even though our start of the tour was kind of thrilling , I am so glad to know you enjoyed the tour. I believe you had a great time in Akihabara or Shibuya on the next day because I remember your happy face in Akihabara. Please come back to Tokyo someday. Your Akihabara is waiting for you !
Kahoko was a splendid tour guide and gave us a really thorough introduction to Tokyo! Depending on your itinerary (our's was ambitious), definitely wear your walking shoes, I think we hit 12 miles! Kahoko's English is excellent and she herself is very sweet and likable. We were also very appreciative and impressed by the fact that she visited a vegetarian restaurant we had suggested the day before we arrived, just to make sure there were no issues in finding it (T's TanTan, vegetarian ramen, which we really enjoyed). It was very helpful to have a tour guide our first day in the city to help us understand how to navigate the subway, and Kahoko was great about making sure we saw the sites we wanted to see. Thank you Kahoko for your hospitality and a wonderful day in Tokyo! ありがとうございました! read more
Happy New Year. Thank you very much for the review. It was a great pleasure for me to share your precious time in Japan. Thanks to you , I could learn a lot about vegetarian meal and restaurants offering it. I was able to taste it myself for the first time. It was much better than my expectation. I was wondering how was your rest of your trip like. Please forgive my having you walk for a long distance. You must have got so tired. I admire your cooperation and patience. Please come back to Japan some day. Let´s make it easier next time. Thank you again and take care. Kahoko
Best decision to have a tour on our first day in Tokyo. Kahoko was a wonderful guide and we felt very blessed to have her with us. We were a large group of seven including three teenagers who had just hoped off an overnight flight so all a bit tired. She really responded to the groups needs and interests as we toured around Akihabara, Akasaka and Nippori/Yanaka. We did more in those 4hrs with Kahoko's guidance and directions than we have done in days since on our own. She took us down backstreet shortcuts and through suburban areas as well as to more well known tourist destinations. She advised us all what was what at the street food markets and helped with purchases on our journey. As a parent herself, she had a great understanding of the kids needs/wants. We can't thank her enough and w... read more
Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! Having a tour with happy families like you was a wonderful start of the new year for me. I was so glad to see you try some challenging Japanese food or traditions. Then I was sure you could definitely have great time and enjoy every minute for the rest of your stay in Japan. You are very acceptable and spontaneous. I just hope your time in Japan exciting and happy. You are staying pretty long, if there is anything I can do for you. Anything, anytime. Kahoko
We were fortunate to spend half a day with Kahoko on December 31st to get a taste of Tokyo. We arrived the night before and were a bit nervous about navigating the metro/railway so we wanted someone who could help orient us, and to show us some of the key areas of Tokyo. Kahoko met our request perfectly - she was waiting for us at the designated spot and helped us buy our Pasmo card and explain the train system. We travelled by train to Akihabara first to see the arcades and anime world; then to Asakusa to visit the beautiful Sensoji temple where Kahoko taught us the customs for New Year. She took us to an authentic conveyor belt sushi restaurant where the fish was so fresh - thank goodness she was able to translate for us as the servers didn't speak English. Finally, we went to Shibu... read more
Thank you very much for the sweet review ! It was an unforgettable year end for me. I was so glad to know I could make a help to you even a little, I hope your rest of Tokyo stay interesting and enjoyable. And I'm sure you can make it because you're so acceptable and flexible. You really are such a wonderful and happy family. Please come back to Tokyo some day soon. ありがとうございました。( you even master Japanese ! )
My Family's first trip to Japan became more memorable with the tour guided by Kahoko-san. We learned a lot most especially on how to understand the "seemingly" complicated train system in Japan. But with how Kahoko presented it to us and explained on how to read the map, the rest of our train rides in Tokyo was a breeze. Thank you so much. Would definitely recommend Triplelights with Kahoko as guide to friends and relatives who will visit Japan soon. :-)
Thank you very much for the review . It was really sweet of you! You are such a terrific family with four charming and promising boys. Mom and Dad make a perfect couple. I was very glad to know that you enjoyed your rest of trip. I hope Mom and Dad come back to Japan on their anniversary trip so that I can take you some special and adultlike place. Thank you again and a Happy New Year!
We had two wonderful days in Tokyo with the dedicated and resourceful help from Kahoko. Kahoko is super nice, very knowledgeable and accommodating. The tea ceremony in the Hamarikyu, my daughter's spontaneously visiting the Cat cafe and my son's best eel lunch are just the few of many fond memories we had for our two days and three nights in Tokyo. Kahoko,thank you very much! Tokyo, we will be back!
It was so nice of you to give me such a sweet review! I was so happy to spend 2 days with a terrific family like you. It's good to to see you care each other. Maybe you're staying in Kanazawa now. I hope you enjoy the scenic beauty of the city and delicious food. Take care and please do come back to Tokyo ! Kahoko
We booked a half day and a full day tour with Kahoko , We had a awesome time kahoko was very prompt , well spoken in English Very knowledgable on all the places we visited . Kahoko even went out of her way to accomodate a special requested place we wanted to visit for my wife . Sorry for making you late for your next appointment . We had a lovely time and would defiantly do not again
Hello VW lovers! Thank you very much for a nice review. I was wondering if you were able to see Mt Fuji on the next day. Maybe yes? I had a great time with you for two days myself. Especially ,the last three hours was just fun because I seldom take my guest to the place I've never been. It was like an adventure! I wish I could have had more time with you. Please forgive me to make you hurry. I hope you will come back to Japan with your children someday. I wish you a merry Christmas. Kahoko Kawada
We arrived in Japan at 5am for the first time and wanted to experience Tokyo with a local who could show us around. Kahoko met us at our hotel and from that moment on, we felt that Kahoko was more than a guide but also someone we could trust, more like a friend. She showed us how to navigate the Tokyo Metro, the sacred places, the new and exciting places, as well as the traditional parts of Tokyo. Kahoko took us to a traditional Japanese lunch and my wife enjoyed sashimi (raw fish) for the very first time, and with Kahoko's expert guidance and knowledge made for the most enjoyable Japanese meal. Overall we thoroughly loved her and so will you! Kahoko is a 5-star guide!
It's just speechless. Thank you so much for the review. I had a great day myself with all of you on every kilo of 18k!! Your family's warm and gentle vibes really made me happy. I just hope your rest of trip safe,pleasant, and unforgettable. Aiden , Mr Prince, if you ever come to Japan as a teacher, please keep in mind that you have a friend in Tokyo. Thank you again and be a nice family forever !
I was on a business trip to Japan and had a day spare to explore Tokyo. What better way than with a helping hand? Tour was as described and I very much had an enjoyable day and learnt a great deal with Kahoko. If you want to make the most of a short stay I highly recommend booking.
Thank you very much for the review ! I know you are such a busy business person . It's kind of you to have given me time for this. I had a great time with you practicing and learning authentic British English. I was also able to know up-to-date British news. You're going to Berlin with your husband ( or already ? ) ,right ? I hope you such a terrific trip and wish a little early merry Christmas!
Kahoko speaks really good English and it's a bliss communicating with her. She is very prompt with her response and takes the trouble to plan the travel itinerary according to our intended sights to visit. My family and I had a wonderful time visiting Asakusa, taking the water boat to Hama Rikyu Garden, experiencing the Tea ceremony and sweet mochi and stopping Odaiba as our last visting site. I would definitely contact her again when I'm next visiting Tokyo again. Arigatou gozaimashita!
Thank you so much for the sweetest review ! I really had a great time with you all. I was wondering how the rest of your tour was like. You had a lot of fun, maybe ? There are still so many places to visit in Japan. I hope you come back to Japan soon. I am ready to give you some up-to-date information of Japan for your next trip. Please ask me anything , anytime. The cookies were sooo good ! Was sweet like you. Warmly, Kahoko
Our guide was friendly, intelligent and dynamic whichallowed us to see the maximum in 5 hours tlme.
Thank you very much for the review ! I really hoped you having a peaceful and graceful dinner after crowded and hectic night tour. Also I am sorry to have you worried about my goof. Thanks to my luck , I got my card back ; someone took it to the police. Thank you again and wish you a little early Merry Christmas.
My wife and I had such a wonderful time with Miss Kahoko. She's punctual in meeting us in our hotel elegantly dressed in nice kimono which set the tone for the cultural activity. Her house is very quaint and immaculately clean and tidy. She taught / help us into our respective kimonos before heading to a nice stroll in a nearby lovely Japanese garden. The tea ceremony was very solemn and relaxing to the senses. The kaiseki lunch which she cooked is really delicious, not to mention that the arrangement is very pleasing to the eyes. She even served us the most delicious grapes that we have ever tasted - the Tanenashi variety. Overall this tour is highly recommended for those who like to experience the real Japanese culture in a 4 hour span. By the way she e... read more
Thank you for the warmest review ! I had such a great time with two of you myself . It was as if I had welcomed some close and important friends to my place. You are kind, polite ,and so easy to be happy with. Your beloved wife is too charming ! Also your respectful attitude to other culture is what we need to follow. AS you come to Japan so often , please contact me anytime. I'll make further research about interesting places to visit or must-have food. Thank you again and take care. Kahoko
We had a wonderful time travelling around visiting sites with Kahoko. She is knowledgeable and kind and speaks good English. I would definitely contact her again next time we are in Tokyo.
Thank you very much for the review , Eran. You are definitely one of the most impressive guests I've ever had. There was no such a person having eaten a box of uni in front of me ! It was really tasty, though. I believe your family had a great time in Kurobe and Osaka eating local specialty. Thank you again for asking me . Please come back to Japan some day. Kahoko
What a memorable and wonderful travel experience I enjoyed with Kahoko as my tour guide in Tokyo, Japan. Kahoku is educated, fluent in English, well informed, elegant and most definitely, a "people person!" Wherever we went, Kahoku was engagng with the people we met. Her demeanor made every experience, whether touring, shopping, dining or travelling on the metro a friendly experience. Together we toured some noteworthy sites in and around Tokyo, namely: The Imperial Palace, Tsukiji Market, Tokyo Tower, New Art Center, Meiji Shrine, Senso-ji Shrine. We visited the neighborhoods of Roppongi, Shibayu, Asakusa and Akihabara, as well as, the nostalgic towns of Ueno & Yanaka. We attended a Tea Ceremony and rode in a Rickshaw: Kohoku even... read more
Thank you for the sweetest review ! It was a memorable and wonderful four days for me as well . I've learn so many things from you , from New Yorker's everyday life to up- to- date US news. It's quite rare for me to guide the same guest over four days. Naturally ,we have come to know more about each other . That allowed us to talk quite a lot. You are really open to new challenging things and easily get used to them. When you ever come to Tokyo, let's go excursion to Nikko or Kamakura . By the way ,my Halloween party finished successfully There were over 20 people and three actual size skeletons in our small yard. Ha ha ! Please take a good rest and be ready for the long festive season . I'm looking forward to your husband's next business trip to Tokyo . I hope you will c... read more
We had a a very full and fantastic day with our guide Kahoko. She was ready and filled with all sorts of information, maps and transportation schedules and procedures for us. She was answering so many of our questions that we had without even asking. She readily made changes to our itinerary due to the rain and to my physical limitations. She aptly and efficiently took us through the Tsujiki Fish Market. We were very fortunate to be immediately seated at a favored/popular sushi restaurant and had the omakase (chef's choice) which was delectably fresh, generous in portion ad beautifully presented (no photographs allowed!). While at the fish market, Kahoko directed me to a knife vendor since I had wanted to buy a high quality carbon steel sashimi knife. Through her interpretat... read more
Thank you for the nicest review ! It was an unforgettable birthday for me because we shared such a great time and tasteful sushi. I was wondering how you spent your time in Hiroshima and Kyushu. Did you have a chance to try blow fish again ? I believe you enjoyed every moment and taste of the every place . In the US , festive season is coming soon. I hope you will have a great time with your family ! Take care and come back to Tokyo someday. I'm here and waiting for you. Your guide and friend , Kahoko
Kahoko is a wonderful guide who shared her extensive knowledge of Japan with us that included Tokyo and Nikko in particular. She communicated with us quite well. She has a subtle sense of humor and a quiet confidence in her demeanor. We whole hardily recommend her to anyone with an interest in Japan
Thank you for the nice review! How was your stay in Kyoto? I believe you had a great time and took lots of pictures. I was also wondering about your sword thing . I hope you could get one for your son . My husband was soooo happy with your kindness. It was a great pleasure spending two whole days with such a terrific couple. Thanks again , and "Whiskey ! ".
Kahoko was a wonderful guide - we visited places of interest and nothing was too much trouble. Kahoko also explained in detail how the metro worked as we navigated Tokyo. She also arranged lunch for us at a Japanese restaurant which we very much enjoyed. I would recommend Kahoko to anyone wanting to visit Japan.
Thank you very much for the sweet review ！ That was too much for me. I have been wondering how your adventure was like. Maybe you enjoyed every occasions even getting lost. You did ？ I was able to learn a lot abou recent things of the UK. Thanks again and von voyage. Kahoko
Kahoko was an excellent guide. She had great depth of knowledge and also lovely sense of humour. She was very generous with her time and considerate of our needs. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Thank you very much for the prompt review! How is your first night in graceful Kyoto ? A good news for you. According to my research , your timing is the best for colored leaves in NIseko. I really envy you ! I hope you'll enjoy the rest of your journey. Take care. Kahoko
