Amazing Day in Tokyo

From the very beginning to the very end it was amazing. Great way to see the city and so knowledgeable! Wonderful insights into what you are seeing. She even helped me get sorted for my train excursion south showing me how to get around Tokyo station. Excellent English. Will definitely use her again!

Kahoko K.

Thank you very much for the kind review. It was so encouraging and gave me another motivation after a long blank under covid . I really enjoyed your company and learned a lot from European cities to Major league knowledge. I hope you a nice trip to Sasebo and a great time with your son. Happy Father's Day !

A wonderful, top notch guide. AAA++

Kahoko was flexible and adhusted our schedule for our desires. We had an excellent "sampler" Japanese dinner in a "hidden" restaurant and at a reasonable price. She has excellent English, sonething not always true with SE Asia guides. And Kahoko has a very friendly personality. Hire her - you can't go wrong.

Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! I had such a lovely time with two of you. I learned so many new things thanks to you. Still, you must be kind of tired after one month journey. I hope you a nice flight tomorrow, and relaxing cruise in March. Thank you again and take care !

Wonderful Day with Kahoko

Kahoko was a pleasure to be with. My son and I spent just one day touring through Tokyo with her. She was extremely knowledgeable and very patient with us. Given I was with my 10-year-old and that we wanted to stop and shop unexpectedly, she was so accommodating and able to meet our needs with grace. She altered our plans effortlessly as we went and even got us to our next food tour that evening on time. She is very easy to understand with a perfect command of English. It was such a pleasure to have her insight into the culture around us as well as the sights we were seeing. The temple she took us to was lovely and the market around it really fun. I even took the best photo I have ever seen of a koi pond there which is now the screen saver on my phone I liked it so much. She was thoughtful and pointed out many hidden gems as well walked and traveled around. Thanks so much Kahoko. I look forward to seeing you again the next time I come to Tokyo with my family.

Kahoko K.

Thank you for the sweetest review ! It is very encouraging for me. I had such a great time with you. Thanks to you, I have learned many things . I am happy to know that your friend enjoyed the last 100 gram of precious tea. And your adorable boy ! He is not only good looking but has wonderful personality. You are really lucky. Still, I know that is because of you and your husband. I hope your family will come back to Japan someday soon. Thank you again and take care!
