“ 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.

“ Cancelled trip due to typhoon" ”

I due to typhoon did not have the chance to meet her,so can't comment on her qualities.


Thank you for the review even though we were not be able to make a tour. I am sorry you suffered from a big accident in the end of the journey. Still, I hope you will have another chance to come to Tokyo some day. Thank you!

“ 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.


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!

“ Great tour very knowledgeable about train system and Tokyo in general ”

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.


Thank you very much for the kind review! I was wondering how your rest of journey was. Probably it must have been a pleasant one because you are making such a wonderful family. Please come back to Tokyo some day soon. Thank you again and take care!
