“ Best guide ever!! ”

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.

“ Flexible, Creative, and Super Fun to Be With ”

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!

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!!

“ Kahoko - Not Just a Tour Guide ”

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 alone, to hire Kahoko.
