“ Kahoko truly showed us all areas of Tokyo in the 2 days we were with her. Enjoyed eating Japanese foods and discussing our 2 country's cultures and beliefs. ”

Kahoko made us feel comfortable and really showed us all the different areas of Tokyo city. We came to have a better understanding of Japanese life and customs. We got to experience and shop the different food and retail markets It was a great experience. We never could have done it on our own


Thank you for a kind review. I had such marvelous time with two of you! I was able to learn real and further ideas about your country and customs. It was really a precious time. I hope you come back to Tokyo again. I am here and waiting for you!

“ Amazing day tour ”

We had a wonderful time exploring Tokyo with Kahoko. Despite the rainy weather she was able to show us all the highlights of the city. Her English is impeccable. She is a warm and kind person and a pleasure to be around.


Thank you for kind words! We walked a lot under a wetty weather in a New Yorker's pace. You are such a cheerful and energetic lady that I was impressed and inspired very much. I hope you a von voyage and come back to Tokyo some day soon. Thank you again and take care.

“ A Beautiful Day In Tokyo With Kahoko ”

Kahoko did an awesome job as tour guide. She was very attentive and knowledgeable to every aspect of our trip. She saved us so much time! I can’t imagine seeing Tokyo any other way. The whole trip was seamless. I have never seen 7 hours fly by so quickly! I am glad I have pictures to capture the memory. Kahoko made this experience the best ever. I will definitely hire her as a tour guide.


Thank you very much for a kind review! I really enjoyed the time with you. During the 7 hour tour, I could peek how sweet your family cares each other. That made me warm. Every family is totally different, but somehow Iooks totally the same on the certain point. Please stay happy and fit, then come back to Tokyo again. Thank you again and take care!

“ One day in Tokyo ”

Even though the weather did not cooperate,Kahoko did a GREAT job showing us the places we wanted to see. She was able to guide us thru the confusing subway system, gave us very detailed information about what we were seeing, history of Tokyo, stories about the city and the shogun who ruled long ago. She was very alert to any weariness and made sure to allow us time to rest and eat. She took us to a great local noodle place where there were no tourists - the food was fantastic! Overall, we would recommend Kahoko to anyone who wants a good tour of Tokyo with someone who is knowledgeable and cares.


Thank you for a sweet review! I was so encouraged and motivated. Even though the weather conditions was not so good, I had a great time with you because you were always cooperative and ready to enjoy. Also after the typhoon, you can enjoy relaxing cruise under the blue sky. I hope you will have memorable time for the rest of journey. Thank you again take care!
