“ Very helpful and informative guide for a visit to Tokyo, Japan ”

We engaged Kyoko-San for 2 days to show us around Tokyo. It was very easy to connect with her, understand what we could do, work out the logistics and so on. As our trip approached, she got in touch regularly to confirm final detail on logistics from our side. On both days, she was very prompt - arrived early so we didn’t have to wait, took good care to make sure that we felt totally comfortable as we navigated through Tokyo subway and streets, have us a lot of information about the sights, Tokyo, Japan and so on. She made it possible for us to get the most out of our first trip to Tokyo with limited time (as we were just breaking journey on our way to Australia).

Kyoko:

Thank you very much, Ravikumar-san ,for writing me so nice a review! I am also very happy to have been able to walk with you and your beautiful family!! You quickly enjoyed Shinjuku, Asakusa, and Odaiba in those two days (half days each). But you are very accustomed to traveling , so I didn't care so much about your plan most of which had been already reserved by you. I especially liked your daughters' calligraphy class. They not only wrote Japanese Kanji characters beautifully but also behaved very well whole through the tours. I easily understand how much love their parents poured to them! I also loved the ramen restaurant which you found. It was my first experience to eat vegitalian ramen which tastes unbelievably good. This was your very short and hasty visit ,but I believe y... read more

“ An excellent and knowledgeable guide ”

I had an amazing day with Kyoko exploring Tokyo. I learned so much about Japan's history, she really knows her stuff! She was very flexible when I was deciding where I wanted to go and is just a very lovely person. Highly recommended

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for your excellent review, Emma-san! I am very happy to have been with you , especially your request of Happy Pancake. I had never heard of it and if you hadn't been here, I would have never waited in line for a pancake. But we were rewarded! I am impressed by you young people's ability of catching new information. I am also happy that you could get a cute lucky charm in Hanazono Shrine. I hope you will come back to Japan again and we can meet again in the near future!

“ Tokyo Gardens and Senso-ji Shrine ”

Wonderful experience. Kyoko was very friendly and well informed about the sights. I highly recommend Kyoko for tours and sightseeing. Superb.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Karan-san for your quick and excellent review! You are the first guests I welcomed in this new era, Reiwa. So, your family is not only nice but unforgettable. I also enjoyed your mother's and aunt's shopping spree. One of the Kokeshi doll you bought is the same type I have. I hope you love it for a long time. Please continue safe and wonderful journey. Hoping to see you again someday in the near future!

“ we had a wonderfull day with Kyoko ”

We had a fascinating day with Kyoko, an amazing guide, was attentive to our requests even though we changed them countless times, we really enjoyed being with her. Warmly recommending her.

Kyoko:

Thank you Alex-san for your excellent review! You and your wife were so kind and cooperative that I could easily attend you in any occasion. Using taxies time to time makes our tour easy and quick to move. Due to this, we could move more efficient and wider despite you were guests from Yokohama cruse port. The coffee we had at the Tokyo Metropolitan government building was unforgettably nice. I hope we could meet you again in someday near future!

“ Kyoko made our visit wonderful! ”

Kyoko made our introduction to Tokyo amazing. She was so thorough & thoughtful throughout our adventures - always one step ahead of us with ideas & suggestions. Our children (& us) adored Kyoko & we so grateful to have made a new friend. I can not recommend her enough - Kyoko is wonderful!

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Tara-san for writing me such a quick and awesome review! I am trying to return it by nicer words, but I haven't found them yet. So, I just tell you my appreciation in a normal way. Your family is kind , nice, punctual , and broad-minded, which makes me feel I might have had something more I could do for you. I hope I could inform you of just a part of attaraction in Tokyo. Looking forward to meeting you again in the near future!!

Kyoko is great!! She was knowledgeable, friendly and eager to help us explore!! We couldn’t be happier and recommend her for anyone looking to explore Tokyo!!! Thank you Kyoko!!!!

Kyoko:

Thank you for your strong and kind review, Robert-san! I am also really happy to have spent with you who are so kind and cheerful. I was especially moved by your couple's deep connection which has been grown through long time since you were still high school students. Every person has his or her own story and yours are one of the most beautiful ones. I wish we can meet again someday in the near future maybe with your future family!!

“ Fantastic Experience working with Kyoko ”

I booked a two 8 hour private tours with Kyoko for my manager’s 14 year old daughter. From the very first email interaction I was completely impressed with Kyoko. She was professional, personable, extremely knowledgeable and she went above and beyond planning a very detailed tour that would be super fun and interesting for a teenager girl. Day One tour included a visit to Shibuya, Meiji Shrine, Harajuku, Takeshita Street & Omotesando. Day two included a visit to Hamarikyu Garden, a Sumida River Cruise, Lunch at Asakusa, Sensouji Temple and the Tokyo Skytree. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Kyoko and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Kyoko:

I don't know how much thankfulness I can tell you writing me a wonderful and perfect review even though this was not your journeys but your boss's daughter's ones, Michelle! Since we were exchanging our messages, I can easilly understand your high-spirited dedication and loyalty. As you said she is nice , brave and disciplined. I didn't have hard time to be with her. I believe she could totally enjoyed her time in Japan while her father was busy working for his job. There are three other sisters and I am waiting for their turns and yours. Young people are our hope that they will be bridges for you and our countries. Thank you again and again and I wish we can meet in the near future!!

“ A wonderful Cherry Blossom Experience in Tokyo! ”

Kyoko was a very accomodating tour guide to us. Since we requested for a Cherry Blossom tour, Kyoko made sure we had the best Cherry Blossom experience to put a check on our bucket list! She also instantly bonded with my 82-year old mother as she was kind, considerate and very accomodating with my mother's requests for Kyoko to take pictures of her with Cherry Blossoms! Overall, a truly wonderful experience!

Kyoko:

Thank you Lillibeth for writing me an excellent and kind review! I was moved by your dedication to your mother. All you cared about were your mother's interest. Also, your sister who all the way tried to feed me was really funny and nice. Walking with you while biting a huge Melon Pan (bread) under the cherry blossoms was also my unforgettable memory. Please tell my thanks to all of your family. I am waiting for your next visit maybe in the cherry blossoms season again!

“ Kyoko is very knowledgeable about Japan and its history. ”

Kyoko is very knowledgeable about Japan and its history. She’s also an excellent teacher. She’s very approachable and personable. She made my 1st day in Tokyo memorable and highly recommend her

Kyoko:

Thank you very much, Rita-san, for writing me so nice and wonderful review even though you must be very busy. I also learnt from you a lot that the world of attorney is not just like "SUITS". But I still believe it is right in a certain meaning that smart and nice people like you are working so hard in order to keep the order of the law. Rita-san, take care of yourself and please come back to Japan again maybe in autumn next time. Hoping to see you again at that time!

“ First time in Tokyo with Kyoko ”

We had two wonderful days in Tokyo. It was our first acquaintance with this impressive city and Kyoko has proved to be an excellent guide to our family with 3 teenagers, being very attentive and considerate to everyone. On our first day, we discovered the surroundings of Tokyo station and Imperial Palace, where we had a beautiful hanami experience while walking under the cherry blossoms. She took us to Omotesando and Harajuku with their particular atmosphere and we ended the day in Shibuya. On the next day, we went to Tokyo Skytree, Asakusa, Ueno park and Akihabari. On both days she made very good recommendations for lunch and dinner and even had some shopping advice varying from typical Japanese souvenirs over clothing advice to books and dvd's for our son, who has been learning Japa... read more

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Claudia for writing me such a quick and wonderful review! I am a little bit overwhelmed by your son's awesome Japanese and your daughters' smartness and disciplines, which must be cultivated by their parents' deep affection. Your family has never hurried but at the end, everything went well and in time. You could enjoy twice cherry blossoms which usually only bear at most 10 days but lasted 20 days this year maybe they wanted to meet you. I am testifying that your son will be a bridge of your country and Japan in the near future and you will continue to visit Japan again and again maybe in the cherry blossoms' season. (Autumn is also fine!) See you then!

“ A wonderful first day in Tokyo guided by Kyoko ”

We started our weeks tour of japan in Tokyo with a lovely day exploring the fish market,asakura old town and harajuki..Kyoko gave us plenty of useful information to help us understand life in this fabulous city. We balanced the day by visiting both key temples and shrines, aswell as some of the best shopping areas to keep our kids occupied and interested too.Kyoko also found a great spot for lunch that was both reasonably priced and had a good selection of dishes for both us and our two children who are 10 and 11.It was a traditional Japanese eatery where you sit on the floor to eat...underfloor heating was an added bonus as it was a pretty cold day for a walking tour! Although it was a long day,it’s given us a good platform to explore further.

Kyoko:

Thank you Rob-san for writing me a very wonderful review as quick as you can though you must be still busy for your journey! I am very happy to have attend you and your family despite the unexpected coldness of March. But I am sure that you can enjoy full bloom of cherry blossoms while your staying in Japan.You must be really proud of your two beautiful daughters. Two of them have very different characters , but it is really pleasant to see that each of them cares each other. I easily understand how much you parents pour your love to them. I hope you and your wife will come back to Tokyo again with bigger version of them. I believe we can meet again at that time!!

“ Knowledgeable, Professional and nice human being ”

Kyoko San is very much down to earth, Flexible and nice human being. She has a in-depth knowledge of all places and wr had very informative tour with her

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for your warm comment, Pradeepkumar-san. I was impressed you are making very good relationship among your father- and brothers-in-law. I was also surprised that only you are a vegitarian due to religious rules. At that time , I felt sorry for you but I was wrong. Later, I realized you have high pride about that , which made me feel very happy now. Thank you very much again and again. I believe we can meet again someday in the near future!

Kyoko was not just a guide, she have lots of knowledge, local culture, took us to special places and cared very well of us. We already miss her company.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for writing me a wonderful review, Daniel-san! I am very happy to have attended you two for these three days. I could comfortably spend times with you due to your kindness and generosity. I really loved your funny jokes which hurt nobody. You bought tons of lucky charms in shrines and temples, so I am sure that they will work well and bring you a further success. I hope you will come back again in the near future and let's try another adventure!

“ A wonderful evening! ”

Kyoko is a fantastic guide. She is knowledgeable, warm, friendly and thoughtful. Kyoko liaised with us to plan a wonderful walking tour of Shinjuku. I would highly recommend doing this to help orient yourself with this very busy area. We saw Tokyo from above, had a lovely meal in a tiny restaurant in Memory Lane, was scared by Godzilla, made and offering at a Shinto shrine and had drinks in an authentic small bar with the locals in and so much more. A wonderful experience with many things we would not have done or found without Kyokos guidance. She is such a lovely lady and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a guide.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Trish for your wonderful comment and review! I am very happy to know that two of you enjoyed the night so much!! I especially remember you were really relaxed in a very small Showa-taste (Japan's former era) snack which can house only 7 or 8 people. Local people there seemed very happy to have been able to talk with you in broken English. You two were naturally submerged in the atmosphere. It was such a nice scene that I won't forget it for good. Thank you very much for everything you and your husband did to me. I hope you two will come back to Japan in the near future maybe third or fourth time and see me again !!

“ Hakone Tour with Kyoko ”

Tour was good and Kyoko was very accomodating and polite. Highly recommended tour guide.

Kyoko:

Thank you Catherine for writing me a review! Recently, Hakone is very crowded and we had only very short time, so , the tour itself got very busy. If we had had a little more longer time, we could have had a much perfect day. But your awesome family was very kind and well-mannered enough to enjoy such a short stay. I hope you will come back again in the near future and let's try Hakone again with one night stay together!!

Kyoko is a delight! The moment we met her, she welcomed us to Japan with a smile and a big hug. She is exceptionally knowledgeable about the history of cities in and around Tokyo. She was very patient and we made multiple unscheduled stops. Even though, she got us back on schedule and we were able to visit all the sights as planned, On the second day of our scheduled tour, she arrived with a bag full of Japanese treats. My daughter and I were so comfortable and impressed with Kyoko, my daughter spent half a day touring the city with Kyoko while I was back at the hotel resting. My daughter returned from the tour with more excitement then before she left. Fantastic tour guide! if she is available during your visit to Japan, book her now!

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Tasha for your quick and wonderful comment. You generously had me full 8hours tours for two days , but due to your tiredness and cold, we could not use up whole hours. So, my small treat is only the token of my sorry. Please enjoy them soon. Your daughter is well-diciplined and acted greatly while you were not there. I was impressed by her braveness. Some people happily took us pictures and asked her where she is from. I am really happy to be with so nice mother and daughter. Please continue a safe and comfortable journey!

“ Kyoko was a great tour guide ”

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

Kyoko:

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.

“ Oh! What a night!! Kyoko is a wise choice! ”

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

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!!

“ Tokyo Tour ”

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!

Kyoko:

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.

“ Worth every bit! ”

Kyoko took my family of 8 for a day in hakone and it was worth every yen/penny. She took the stress of public transportation away from us for the day and accommodated my family of 2 sets of elderly parents with one using cane/wheelchair and 2 toddlers. Personable and just lovely of a person. Would love to have Kyoko take us out on more adventures the next time we come back. Thank you so much Kyoko!!!

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for writing such a quick and wonderful review, Khoalinh. I hope this didn't make you tired so much. It was also great pleasure for me to be with your family who warmly welcomed me just like your family member. I was also very impressed you and your husband's kindness and guts. Both of you greatly worked so hard for pushing 2 baby cars and 1 wheelchair. Of course, I know there were a lot of help from your parents but you sitll had your future child. You and your husband are so affectionate parents that your children will be adults just like you. I hope I can meet bigger version of such wonderful children in the near future. I wish all of you your safe and joyful journey ! Please have fun!!

“ Tokyo With Kyoko ”

Kyoko was an absolute delight. She was knowledgeable and very kind. We appreciated her patience as we had an infant with us. It was a very hot day in Tokyo when we visited and Kyoko showed us all the sites we requested using the most convient and efficient modes of transportation available. I especially appreciated her limiting the amount of walking we would have otherwise had to do. When we visit Japan again, I will ask for Kyoko again as a tour guide.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for writing me a wonderful review despite your very busy days, Sondra! I was very happy to have been able to meet you at Tokyo Station because it is the Tokyo's biggest station and to find you seemed miracle for me in such crowded people of Bon vacation! But you and your son is very kind and his wife is also very smart. Your granddaughter is the youngest in my record of three months! Despite the hot weather of sweltering Japan's August , she traveled very smoothly. How strong she is! I hope you will come back to Japan with your husband again in the near future.

Thank you very much for writing me a excellent review, Heidi! I was very happy to be with your family whole one day in Tokyo. I was very impressed by your first son who serves in Okinawa for our peace and stability. How much proud people are of your son! I was also impressed by your second son who are very pure and let me know many things about him. It was pleasant time for me to talk with him while imagining how much he will grow up if I could meet him next time. Tell thank you from me to your kind husband, cute niece, and her cheerful mother.

Unfortunately, the day didn't have Imperial Palace Eastern Garden or Sumo Practice, but you gave me a lot of inspiration which cultivated my tour range. So, it was also an impressive day for me.

“ A Wonderful Day Strolling Tokyo ”

My wife and I read many of the prior reviews (spoiler: they are all good and they are all accurate) before booking Kyoko so we were expecting a nice, qualified person to show us around for our first day, and first time, in Tokyo. But this woman is truly one of the sweetest people we've met and my family just fell in love with her. We did ourselves an injustice booking only one day with her, but we were only in Japan for a short time before heading to our main destination, Taiwan. Even so, our second day was peppered with suggestions from Kyoko. My son and I went to one particular Samurai experience on her suggestion. I was a little concerned it might turn out to be a silly tourist thing.....it wasn't and there is no room here to detail what a gem of an experience this was. The poi... read more

Thank you very much for giving me such a great review, Edward! I am very happy to have met you and your beautiful family. It was a typical day in Japan's rainy season but you could see a lot of flowers like irisis or hydrangeas. I am especially happy that you believed me and tried the experience with your son. I knew you are the people who can understand such a heartfelt experience because I realized how bright your face shined when you heard the voices of the kendo practice in Imperial Palace. I am also happy to know your daughter wants to try on kimono. I am sure it will suit not only her but also her mother,too. So, next time!

My family and I booked a one day trip to Hakone with Kyoko, and we had a wonderful time. We couldn't stop talking about her for days! I have booked a total of 4 tour guides with Triplelights, and Kyoko is my favorite!

Kyoko communicated well with us before our arrival and professionally guided us on a half day tour. She was helpful in teaching us to use the trains and found a very nice sushi restaurant near the fish market to have lunch. We would highly recommend her to future tourists.

Thank you for giving me a wonderful review so quickly because I know you are still in the middle of travel. Thanks to the moderate temperature and appropriate choice of transportation , we could conduct the whole tour as planned. I especially feel happy about your trial of tea ceremony.

We enjoyed not only visiting cute places but also eating traditional Japanese food such as sushi, takoyaki, and taiyaki. I am also happy to have known your kind BF also enjoyed a lot in Nissan Motor Show. I wish you your success and look forward to meeting you again!

“ Kyoko took us to Korakuen Garden, the Imperial Palace, Hibiya Park and we ended at Ginza. ”

She was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information about the history of the area. She was energetic, pleasant, and engaging.

Kyoko:

Dear Carol, I am sorry I might have walked a little faster pace because you reserved me in only 6 hours and you expected me to take you to the all places you requested. You kindly offered me to guide you to Kamakura the next day, but I am also sorry that I couldn't . But I was very happy to hear your words, "We enjoyed so much in Tokyo and you were VERY GOOD." I wish all of you good luck!

“ Great 1st time experience ”

We wouldn't have seen much of Tokyo if it wasn't for Kyoko. She was also able to show us how to go around via the train system. Would get her again when I return to Tokyo :)

Kyoko:

Thank you ,Vinee for writing my review so quickly, even though you must be very tired of having taken care of your babies while walked a lot in Tokyo. I also enjoyed spending two days with your awesome family in beautiful autumnal atmosphere. I believe your family especially enjoyed colored leaves, owl cafe, and Roppongi Hills' observatory. Yes! Please come back again and show me a bigger version of Sam and Enzo. Please tell thank you from me to all of your family members!

“ Great day in Tokyo because of Kyoko, our tour guide ”

Kyoko is such a wonderful tour guide my group of 12 adults were blessed with in our one free day in Tokyo. She picked us up at the hotel and patiently took us to different sights by train. Such an experience for us to be taking train in our kimonos, which Kyoko had arranged for us to rent. She is very patient ensuring everyone is attended to. She let us experience to be " locals " by walking us thru the markets, busy streets of Ginza, spending time in shopping malls. Always on time. I highly recommend her to be your tour guide, be it for one day or few days, if you want to have a great day in Tokyo. Thank you Kyoko for a fun-filled day with you as our tour guide. GOD bless, and hope to see you again with another group of mine. Josie Reyes - Hayward, CA USA

Kyoko:

Thank you JOSIE for writing me a great review and I am sorry not to write you back soon. I had been in Tohoku (northern part of Japan) to enjoy turning leaves. It was so beautiful, so, I want to let you see them. Maybe next time! What is the most impressive memory with you is you and your friends' cute styles of kimono. A Japanese man in the elevator commended how beautiful you were! I know it's true. He seemed very happy to meet you clad in kimono. Enjoying a tea ceremony in Hamarikyu is also unforgettable memory. Anyway, please tell every of your friends thank you from me ! I am really waiting for your coming back and seeing you again!

“ Great tour even in the rain! ”

We had a great 8 hours tour in Tokyo with Kyoko. Unfortunately we arrived when typhoon Lan was approaching Japan so we didn’t the have the best weather (it was raining the whole day with no break!). Kyoko confirmed the itinerary with us and managed to show us the most beautiful parts of Tokyo even in the rain. We covered many areas which we wouldn’t have done on our own. She even took us to the tourist centre where you can try on kimono and yukata free of charge and we’ve had a lot of great photos. Thank you Kyoko for being our guide we had a great time! I will definitely recommend Kyoko if you are looking for a friendly and dedicated guide tour.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Tong for your wonderful review! I can't forget the day you came to Tokyo for your honeymoon. Thank you for choosing Japan for your best memory days. Despite the bad weather, you and your husband let me make decision where to go. So, I tried to do my best to avoid rains but not so successful. But one thing I could do good was to let you try simple kimono experience even though only in a short time. At that time , you and your husband looked a beautiful couple clad in kimono. I wish you and your husband a happy life for good. And someday please come back to Japan again with your husband and your future children!!

“ Wonderful Tokyo City tour and Hakone One day Tour ”

We had a wonderful experience during our one day Tokyo city free tour. We are a family of 6 with teenagers. Although we were not blessed with a very good weather during our first day, our tour guide Kyoko was very creative to give us alternative places to go to which we really enjoyed. We enjoyed the serenity in Meije shrine, got to see famous shops with branded goods in Harajuku, Roppongi hills and Ginza mall. On our second day, which I loved the most is the Hakone sightseeing tour. The 2 hours travel is really worth spending. The Hakone Gora park is well maintained and lovely. We took Hakone ropeway going to Owakudani and Ashinoko river and took a boatride with perfect view. Most of all, we are lucky and thankful to have Kyoko san as our guide as she is very pleasant, caring and gives ... read more

Kyoko:

Thank you for giving me such a quick and nice review! I am also very happy to have accompanied with your wonderful family. You and you husband always show consideration each other, and your four beautiful daughters are not only cute but very smart. I am very sorry because the romance car delayed due to the accident. But its aftereffect , you could luckily visit Shibuya instead of Shinjuku where you could take a picture with Hachiko (a statue of loyal dog ) which you had told you wanted to do so. Everything seemed to go well for you. I hope you will come back to Japan near the furure and we can see you again !!

“ A very fruitful tour ”

This is our second visit to Tokyo. Kyoko is very experience and be able to plan our trip very well despite of the typhoon, she is trying hard to adjust the timing and be able to cover all visit in the plan. She speak good english and easy to communicate. We will look for her again on our future trip.

Kyoko:

Thank you COR for your wonderful review! I can't forget your kindness you showed to your wife , your daughters, and even me!! I was fairly worried about a typhoon which were to hit Tokyo. But despite rains and winds, you patiently followed me through the Imperial palace. I was impressed by your daughters' knowledge about fashion brands which I didn't know. It enlightened me about what kind of interests in Japan young people have. It was really exciting! I wish you your further success and look forward to seeing you again!

“ Stroll in Japan ”

She is very enthusiastic, lots of patience and tried to cover the places where I wanted to go in a short period of time.

Kyoko:

Dear Carmen, thank you for your nice rating! I first worried that you intended to go to Narita after my night tour , which I thought might make you very busy and tired. But you were full of energy and went through all of my tour perfectly and went back to your hotel in Narita after it. It became an unforgettable memory for me that we sneaked to the precincts of Imperial Palace late at night and took many pictures there. Next time, please be sure to come back again with your family and friends and enjoy a longer tour!

“ One Day in Tokyo ”

I had one day in Tokyo and was lucky to stumble upon TripleLights and their services! I engaged Kyoko as my guide and we spent a wonderful day together. We went from Shibuya to Shinnbashiand Hamarikyu Palace, which was very beautiful. We had a lovely traditional tea ceremony there, then took the water bus to Asakusa. It was a great way to see an overview of the city and get a break from the heat! Then we went to Sensouji Temple which was beautiful and also did some shopping there. We had a delicious lunch in Okonomiyaki cooked right at our table for us then headed back to Shibuya to Harajuku and Meijijinngu Shrine where we also saw the Olympic Stadium from 1950. We then ended up with some shopping in Omotesando. What a day! But it was perfect! I saw so much of Tokyo and learned so much fr... read more

Kyoko:

Thank you for your so nice reiview, Joy. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed a short stay in Tokyo with me. I took you to many places just in one day , but you patiently followed me in a sweltering heat of Tokyo. I think Hamarikyu's greens helped us a lot. On that day, the place seemed especially beautiful with reflecting waters and shinning trees. Cold ice Matcha tea was especially refreshing. It was a memorable day for me to be able to talk with you and learn from you a lot about your job. I hope you will continue to be successful in your job, which will make you come back to Japan again!

“ 3 days tour of Tokyo ”

Our family of 5 people had Kyoko as our tour guide in Tokyo for 3 days. She is a gentle, patient, knowledgeable, and professional tour guide. We were able to cover a wide variety of attractions from temple, shrine, anime, theme cafes, shopping, imperial garden and more. We learned so much about Japan history and culture through Kyoko. Thank you for your wonderful service.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Tuan! I am especially impressed by your family's deep bond and affection to each other, and also your knowledge toward art. So, I felt big necessity to learn more about Japanese art. I easily understand why you are so successful in your country. Please tell thank you to your kind wife and boys, too! I am really waiting for your family's visit to Japan again!!

“ Such a memorable trip thanks to Kyoko! ”

Kyoko was my personal tour guide when i travelled solo to Tokyo. I was prepared mentally for a very urban, concrete jungle with a bagazillion number of boring-looking, work minded people. Kyoko was able to stamp down this expectation with such patience and grace. She showed me a side of Tokyo which was graceful and wise, just like her. She showed me the life of Tokyo which resides in the centuries old temples, dams, palaces, pine trees and many more. Taking extreme consideration of my Muslim needs, she patiently scouted an awesome restaurant for Halal food which also provided a place to pray. She went so far to ensure i felt extremely comfortable, focusing on only giving me a good time. Thank you so much Kyoko. It was an unforgettable first trip to Tokyo and I will definitely come again.

Kyoko:

Dear Layhan, thank you for giving me such a long and wonderful review even though you are a very busy careered woman! Meeting you enlightened me about the purity and sincerity of Muslim people. Even though nobody watches you, you strictly try to comply with the accordance of the teaching. Your single-minded way of living reminded me of the olden times' Japanese people. I am very happy to have seen you enjoying the stay in Tokyo. Maybe, many Japanese people had also enjoyed talking with you especially in the B1 food court of Daimaru Department store near Tokyo Station when you tried to buy Dorayaki and Manju (Japanese rice cake). I wish you your happiness and hope to see your coming back to Japan in the near future!

“ Imperial Palace, Skytree Tower, Tokyo Tower etc..... ”

Hi Triplelights.. sorry for my late reply, but this doesn't mean that my tour guide Kyoko is not good. First I want to thank Kyoko for being such a good guide for us. I have a very comfortable tour in her hands. She is such a nice and very warm guide for us. She is very patient and she took good care of us (my family). She never leaves us. She see to it that were all happy and satisfied with our tour which the exact things that I want to happen. Shel wants us to bring some more of the beautiful places but my mother cannot make it anymore because she's already tired, but Kyoko still considered that. She speaks English well. I mean very clear and fluent so I don't have a hard time communicating with her.

Kyoko:

Dear Lilybell, Thank you very much for giving me such great remarks. I am rather a new guide, so I am very worried if I can satisfy my guests. But whole your family members were very friendly and kind to me, so I could spend the time with you in a very relaxed and comfortable feeling. Also, I was really moved by your family's bond which showed me that how considerately your family members were acting to each other! I really appreciate everything what you did to me and I am really waiting for your visiting to Japan again.
