“ Fantastic day in Tokyo! ”

Kahoko was wonderful! Thank you so much for giving us a tour of Tokyo. Very knowledgeable and we covered a lot of ground. Great English and great knowledge of Japanese culture and history. Thank you!


Thank you for the kind review ! I had never experienced such a terribly crowded Tsukiji market. I really appreciated your tolerance. You're making a terrific family ! I had a lovely time with all of you. Please stay fit and healthy, and come back to Tokyo someday.

“ Tokyo tour ”

Kahoko was very informative and fun to be with. Her choices for attraction were very good and authentic. She made our stay memorable.


Thank you very much for the kind review ! I wonder how your cruise trip it going. Probably good. Even though it was very early in the morning, we were able to make a tour efficiently thanks to your cooperation. Please come back to Tokyo with longer stay next time. Thank you again, and take care !

“ A Fantastic Day with a Lovely Guide ”

Wow! This was one of the best tour guide experiences to date. Japan is an amazing country to visit, and was made all the better with the knowledgeable and energetic Kahoko. She was well organised and catered the tour to our interests so our site visits were great tasters to plan out the rest of our vacation. Thanks to Kahoko we were introduced to the Metro and we were then able to use this new skill for the rest of our stay! We would highly recommend her service and if we were to visit again would certainly book! Thank you so much Kahoko!


Thank you very much for the kind review ! I was wondering how your adventures were going. Could you get Pokemon golds ? I had such a lovely time with a happy family like you. You are all nice and walk well ! Few of my clients walk more quickly than me. You are the rare case. Please stay fit and healthy and come back to Tokyo again. Thank you again and see you some day!

“ 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.


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.
