“ 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 !

“ Day trip to Nikko ”

We had an amazing day in Nikko with Kahoko . Because of the typhoon a lot of the trains weren’t running . Kahoko organised alternative transport for us which worked perfectly. She is a truly lovely lady whose knowledge and enthusiasm was contagious . I highly recommend her to anyone coming to Nikko or Tokyo .

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kindest review ! I will never forget your cooperation and tolerance under the unexpected condition. Actually, thanks to you, I enjoyed VACANT Toshogu area myself. Probably, you are all Mr and Ms lucky. By the way, I believe England will win the World cup . Go England !

“ We hired 4 guides in our 17 days tour to Tokyo, Takamatsu and Shanghai and Kahoko helped us visiting Tokyo. ”

Kahoko had a unique mission from us in our art tour in Tokyo within 2 days. She was top efficient leading us along the transportation system. Saving lot of time at the very long trips in Tokyo. She was most knowledgeable with the visiting spots information. Our tour was absolutely not a standard visiting tour and Kahoko fulfilled all our expectations. It was a great pleasure for my wife and myself to spend these two days in Tokyo with Kahoko and see the so many places we wished and planed to see.

KAHOKO:

Thank you for the nice review. I had such a great time with two of you even though the weather was not so good. I appreciated your tolerance and cooperation. I believe your visit to Takamatsu and Naoshimd was relaxing and memorable. I really envy you! Please come back to Tokyo some day. There's more to see. Thank you again and take care!

“ Very engaging and knowledgeable guide for full-day Tokyo tour ”

Kahoko was a pleasure to have as a guide on our 8-hour tour of Tokyo. We set the itinerary in advance and met her at our first sight. We visited the Tsukiji Outer Market, Hama-rikyu Onshi-teien Garden, Ginza (department store food hall), Asakusa, Senso-ji Temple, and Yanaka. We especially enjoyed learning about Japanese history and culture from Kahoko.

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review! I had great time with a terrific couple. You were open and ready to enjoy any aspect of Japanese culture. I myself could learn many things from you. It was interesting and helpful. Thank you again and take care!

Accommodated some unexpected changes we had in our itinerary. Was very helpful on the first day in Tokyo to understand the train system and layout of the city. Very knowledgeable about the city and history. Would recommend for first time visitors to Tokyo.

“ Awesome Day In Tokyo With Kahoko ”

We had a terrific day with Kahoko. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to see and learn a lot about Tokyo. She was really good about sending emails and setting up our day before our trip started...what did we want to do and see. She offered suggestions but left the final decisions up to us. She: * Taught us how to use the subway * Taught us a lot about Japanese history and culture * Showed us a million little things in Tokyo we would have NEVER seen or known * Offered lunch suggestions and helped us order a great lunch * Took us on a tour of a Tokyo neighborhood and showed us how they live every day * Showed us how to get around Tokyo so we could spend time out on our own the remainder of the week Again, if you are looking for someone to show you this incredible... read more

KAHOKO:

Thank you for the kindest review ! I really appreciate it. I had a wonderful day with all of you! You are making such a terrific team; all cheerful, tough and tolerant. I was lucky enough to be able to guide you all. It was quite a rare case to visit more places than originally planned thanks to your fitness. Especially, you are a first triathlon finisher for me. I just can't imagine to ride and swim except for a full marathon. I do respect you. By the way, I was wondering how was your cooking class and Team labo like. I hope your rest of time in Japan memorable and enjoyable. Please come back to Tokyo for Tokyo marathon soon. I hope I will be running there far behind, though. Thank you again and take care!

“ Wonderful, Hospitable, Knowledgeable Guide! ”

We spent 2 very full days with Kahoko for my wife's and my first time visiting Tokyo. She is friendly, engaging and cheerful and very customer-focused. From the beginning she was quick to respond as we prepared for our sightseeing. The Triple Lights website was an excellent way to communicate. We sent her a random list of places and things we'd like to do and she organized them into 2 logical days as well as suggesting some other interesting places or activities. As we subsequently learned from her, one of our requests (the Seiko watch museum), was a place she had not been before. However, she researched it by visiting it in advance of our arrival so she knew exactly how to get us there. This is an illustration of how prepared she was throughout our 2 days. My wife has some limitations on ... read more

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review! Probably, it was too good for me. I had such lovely time with you for two days. You are nice, thoughtful, and generous. It was a great pleasure to see you be interested in our history, culture and way of living. I also appreciate your dear wife's cheerfulness and patience. I believe she must have hurt a lot after a long walk even though she never complained. Please take care of her. I am really looking forward to seeing you again !

“ Great day in Tokyo. ”

Great day in Tokyo with Kahoko. She was able to take us to so many sites and move us around the city with ease. She was able to tailor the trip to our interests which were historical sites and gardens in the city. She helped us get a pasmo card and got us used to using the subway system. It was truly an excellent day and we covered a lot of things in the city. Do not hesitate and hire Kahoko!

KAHOKO:

Thank you for the kind review! I had such a lovely time with a nice couple like you.You were always cooperative and helpful even though it was a hot humid day.And we walked a lot! It was really a good exercise for us. Please stay fit and happy. I hope you

“ Outstanding and professional Tour Guide ”

Kahoko-san was amazing! She met us at our hotel and helped us with our JR pass, and gave us a very helpful tutorial of the complex Tokyo Metro system. With her help, we were able to get around ourselves after our two day tour! Kahoko-san was prompt, knowledgeable, thoughtful, kind and pleasant. It was a delight to spend two days with her. We were able to see many highlights of Tokyo and her itinerary was well though-out and planned. Will most definitely contact Kahoko-san the next time we are in Tokyo. We highly recommend her!

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review! It should be me to appreciate all of you because I had such a pleasant time with you. Especially, your princess is too sweet! Nobody can't come to like her. Also, it's a great news that you spent lovely days after the tour in your pace . I hope you will come back to Tokyo some day. Please stay healthy, cool and happy. Thank you again and take care!

“ The best tour guide I’ve ever experienced ”

We were a group of four adults. How fortunate for us to have booked Kahoko! She met us at our hotel and guided us seamlessly through out Tokyo for a full day tour. With her expertise we were able to navigate public transportation easily and see far more than we ever would have seen on our own. And the places we saw! Temples, museums, Old Japan, Modern Japan and so much more. All of her suggestions were spot on and she was a fountain of knowledge. Oh, and did I mention how kind and helpful she was? We all loved our day with her and will recommend her to our family and friends.

KAHOKO:

Thank you very much for the kind review! I had such a pleasant time with a group of good neighbors. I think it's really a rare case to have a great relationships like you do. It was a heartwarming moments to see you take care of each others. I do hope you will have a wonderful and memorable time in China. If there is a chance to see you again in two years, it would be a great pleasure for me. Thank you again and take care you all!

“ Tokyo one day trip ”

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

KAHOKO:

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

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

“ Very nice day in Kamakura! ”

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

“ Excellent tour in Tokyo with Kohoko ”

We booked a 1-day tour and had a fantastic experience with Kahoko. Kahoko is not only very friendly and professional, she also patiently answered all our questions. She gave us all the important information about Tokyo and the surrounding neighborhoods with a lot of humor and charm. Without Kahoko we would never have been able to visit all the sights in this short time. She also gave us a lot of tips, e.g. about a vegetarian restaurant because my husband is a vegetarian and this can be quite a challenge in Tokyo. We highly recommend Kahoko to everybody without any hesitation. Many thanks Kahoko for this great day!

My wife and I spent a day and a half with Kahoko upon our arrival in Tokyo. She is a wonderful tour guide with excellent English skills and our understanding and appreciation of Tokyo is much deeper than it would have been if we had merely explored on our own. She customized our tours based upon our areas of interest and made adjustments as needed due to changing weather. We were privileged to visit Tokyo during Golden Week and the ascension of the new emperor, which made the trip even more special.

“ Excellent Guide Highly recommend ”

Kahoko We would give Kahoko top marks as a Tokyo guide. She is a joyful person, with many interesting stories and much knowledge to share about life in Japan. When we hired Kahoko for one evening and one day, we provided her with a list of the things we wanted to do and see. She proposed a schedule outlining which of the things we could easily do on our own, the ones for which a guide might be useful and she included some things that no visitor to Japan should miss! One – or more – of the things on our list required no small research on her part! The best meals we had in Japan were at the two restaurants Kahoko brought us to, especially the vegetarian one! Kahoko also went through the remainder of our itinerary with us and clearly explained in sufficient detail how to get to where ... read more

If we had more time, we would have welcomed adding 2 or more days. She was available online to help us design the day before we arrived, and was very responsive throughout the day as new ideas arose for visits. She is extremely knowledgeable on many fronts.

Kahoko met us at the train station and led us through the crowds to the shortest line to the mountain mid point. Throughout the day she was careful to ensure we were seeing and understanding all that was before us. Kahoko arranged the most amazing lunch at the Buddhist temple. Note that three months notice is needed for this treat. It is booked well in advance by people in the know. Kahoko showed us the best photo points and explained each point of interest. She then guided us down and onto our best train connection to our hotel once back in Tokyo. Highly recommended.

“ Kahoko was a great guide for touring Tokyo ”

I’m so glad we were able to book Kahoko for our visit to Tokyo. We arrived by cruise ship and needed to have a large enough vehicle to hold our luggage as well as a guide to take us around for 5 hours and then transport us to airport hotel. Kahoko organized everything including hiring the driver/ vehicle and scheduling the itinerary, which allowed us to visit all of the sites we requested in the limited time we had. She was very knowledgeable about the sites, and treated us to local food fare. Can’t say enough good things about her. Would definitely recommend Kahoko ‘s services. Thank you again Kahoko for a wonderful day!

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!

“ A unique and private experience away from the grind of Tokyo. ”

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

“ Kahoko went above and beyond ”

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.

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!

“ A wonderful guide with great English! ”

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!

KAHOKO:

“ Layover Tour ”

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.

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.

“ Great Day with Kahoko ”

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!

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.

“ A fantastic day in Tokyo with Kahoko ”

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.

KAHOKO:

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,

“ Half day tour in Tokyo ”

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

KAHOKO:

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 !

“ Kahoko - great Tokyo tour ”

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.

KAHOKO:

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.

“ Our wonderful time with Kahoko ”

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.

KAHOKO:

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 !

“ Kahoko is great ”

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

KAHOKO:

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!

“ Great Guide: Took us places we'd have never found otherwise ”

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.

KAHOKO:

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.

“ Gracious, Accommodating Host ”

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!!

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!

“ Excellent Tour of Tokyo ”

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.

KAHOKO:

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.

“ Cherry Blossoms revisited with cheerful Kahoko ”

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

KAHOKO:

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.

“ A lovely day in Kamakura ”

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

KAHOKO:

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 !
