“ Visiting the Snow Monkeys ”

Having Kahoko as a guide when visiting Toyko was the best decision that we made. She made our time in Toyko fun and made it very easy to get around. Kahoko was full of knowledge and visiting the Snow Monkeys was one of our highlights. Thank you Kahoko for making out trip enjoyable and stress-free. Jamie and Deb Ruf


Thank you for a kind review! I was very relieved to find some snow and monkeys on the day there. I was also impressed with your picture taking technique. That snow throwing one was really lively and interesting. Please come back to Japan again some day soon, Thank you again and take care!

“ Don’t look further- just book Kahoko if you can!!!???????? ”

Kahoko is absolutely lovely to be with, and an incredibly comfortable companion for all ages. She works so hard to accommodate and really knows her stuff. We have had guides worldwide and I can honestly say she’s tops. A delight!!! She will move fast or be incredibly patient, is very attune to her clients’ desires. Get her if you can. Thank you Kahoko!


Thank you for the quickest and sweetest review! I am speechless. As you're such a lively and charming family,I just enjoyed every moment with you even though the places were so crowded and troublesome, sometimes. I appreciate your cooperation and tolerance. I hope we see you sooner.

“ Tokyo HIghlights in a Day ”

Kahoko truly represented the best of Japanese hospitality. She welcomed us warmly in our hotel lobby and we were instantly put at ease when we met her. She speaks eloquently and is very knowledgeable. We enjoyed our day with her and we are very thankful to her for introducing us to Tokyo on our first full day there. We 100% recommend Kahoko over and over. You can book Kahoko with complete confidence that she will not only meet but will exceed your expectations!!! Thanks Kahoko.


Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! Your kind words really encouraged me and gave great motivation for the job. I had such a great day with three of you . Just seeing you caring each other made me warm . There lots of more to see in JAPAN, so please come back someday soon. Until then, please stay happy and fit. Thank you!

“ Good introduction to Japan and Tokyo ”

Kahoko met us on our first night in Japan, and showed us some key sights in Tokyo (in her "as you like night tour"). She was very helpful getting us oriented with the subway system near our hotel. She clearly loves meeting new people! She was friendly and kind -- she found us a good place to eat and was generous when it came to splitting the bill.


Thank you for the kind review. I was wondering how your adventures in Japan were going. There must have been a lot of fun. I hope you'll stay happy and fit. Thank you again and take care!

“ 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


Thank you very much for the sweetest review! I'm almost crying with your heartful words. I am the one who wants to appreciate it. Jo Anne's pure smile at the Christian shop gave me a sense of achievement and further motivation for my job. Thank you for the tasteful time. I do hope you a long and happy life. Take care!
