Hello! I'm Kyoko. I am a National licensed tour guide and a licensed teacher for junior and high schools. I also have a licensed manager of itinerary.
I was born in Kyoto, that's why my name is Kyoto's child (Kyo Ko). And I had chances to live in Kyoto, Nara,Tokyo, and Lima,Peru. Now I live with my husband in Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture which is next to Tokyo. Kanagawa prefecture is as nice as Tokyo, with Kawasaki city, Yokohama city, Kamakura city and so on.
My hobby is wearing kimono, enjoying tea ceremony,exercising through yoga and aerobics. Kimono is a Japanese beautiful national costume, and you can try it on only in Japan. So, if you'd like to try it on , maybe I can help you. Let me know your request.
As I had lived in Peru, I can speak easy Spanish, but still not enough. So if you are Spanish natives, let me teach your language! I want to study Spanish more. " Por favor!"
Japan has a long history in which many good things and sad things happened. I want to walk in our country with you while helping you understand our country and us. Let's enjoy together!!

Kyoko met all of our expectations for are one day in Tokyo. She met us at our hotel on time and ended our day at our ship with time to spare. We had lunch at a wonderful sushi and tempura restaurant that catered to locals with Delicious Japanese food. She was knowledgeable about Tokyo and made the day educational and fun. We recommend her highly and would use her services again. Alan and Patricia
Thank you very much Alan and Patricia for writing me a wonderful review! I am very happy to know all my plans met your requests. The first temple is Tokugawa Shogun's family temple but you especially loved the atmosphere of Asakusa. Traveling with big luggage from Tokyo to Yokohama might be hard for you but you did it very smoothly. Thank you again anad again and I am really looking forward to meeting you again in the near future!!
Kyoko and I had messaged through Triple Lights over a few months before my trip, my plans changing from message to message. She was very patient with me, and more than willing to adjust her night tour to satisfy my wants. Meeting her for our night tour was a genuine treat. She is warm, personable, with a ready smile and a great sense of humor. I loved her right away. As the night turned out, we kind of freestyled Shinjuku, which was the area I wanted to see at night. Believe me, with all the lights and activity, it is a feast for the senses. Right outside my Shinjuku hotel, we stumbled into an arcade, with the machines you manipulate to get a toy. We laughed and struggled, until this kind employee taught us what to do to get that toy to drop! We were ectastic over our success, t... read more
Thank you Linda-san for writing me not only so wonderful review but also whole tour report! How clearly you remember everything! I have nothing to add on it. I am so surprised to see both your capability and consideration. What happened on all that night owes to your talent and generosity. You have a magical power to make people happy. I am reallly lucky to see you even though we live in totally different countries and cultures which didn't hamper us from understanding each other. Thank you Linda-san again and again. Please take great care of yourself. I am really looking forward to meeting you again someday in the near future!!
We had a great day in Tokyo with Kyoko as our guide. It was amazing how the time went by, but we were able to do things we would not have done on our own. Thank you, Kyoko, for a wonderful experience.
Thank you Christopher for writing me an excellent review! It must made you tired to travel by cruse ship for a long period, but I am very happy you remember my trip as one of the wonderful experiences you spent. Kimono suited two of you so much and your smiles seemed shining. I hope you will come back again someday in the near future!
I spent a lovely day with Kyoko and saw more of Tokyo than I would have on my own. Her English is excellent and she’s easy to understand. Kyoko used to be a teacher and that was evident when she easily explained what we were seeing. She was quick to communicate and answer my many questions before my tour. She also followed up after my tour to make sure I arrived back at my hotel. Kyoko is a gem and I highly recommend her. I wish I had booked her for more than one day!
Thank you very much Jill for writing me a great review! I also enjoyed a girls' trip with you a lot. Thanks to your taste, we could walk not only main streets but also back streets to find a nice restaurant for you while chatting. It was a very nice memory and good experience. Thank you for walking a lot . Thank you for treating me to a gluten free food which was totally new to me and developed my new sphere! I hope you will come back to me next time again maybe with your husband!
Kyoto was very nice and helpful guide with an excellent understanding of Japanese custom's and culture.
Thank you very much for writing me a review, Adrian ! I am fully happy to be able to have known you and your wife could enjoy my tour. Please continue a safe and wonderful journey. From Kyoto's child "Kyoko" !
