We can’t wait to go back!

As it was our first time visiting Tokyo, we felt we needed a tour guide to help us out. We were so lucky to have found Kyoko, she was so sweet, funny, and knowledgeable. She was always accommodating to our group of five so that we were able to see all the sights that were on our list. Even when we had last minute changes, she didn’t hesitate to adjust our schedule. Kyoko made us feel so comfortable and welcome, we will definitely be booking with her again whenever we can go back. Thank you Kyoko!

Kyoko K.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Alex. I am the very lucky to have been chosen by you. I really appreciate your 6 days' booking here again. You and your husband Luis are very kind to your family members and took great care of them. I didn't need to worry too much about the others because you always checked where they could join later or vice versa. It was so sorry that you couldn't go to Old Capital Kamakura this time , but I believe you will come back again with your parents and children soon. Looking forward to meeting all of you again in the near future!

Very helpful, friendly and resourceful guide

Kyoko san was on a challenge with us as we were only in Tokyo for the night before leaving Japan very early the next morning. In these times of hardcore covid restrictions she has been like a guardian angel for my family and I. She assisted us the best she could to make our short visit a delight despite the fatigue of the trip. Thanks to her we managed to visit a few things and eat a delicious meal and we loved it so much, we promised ourselves to come back to Japan for a real long visit next time. Thank you so much Kyoko san!!!

Kyoko K.

Thank you very much for your very kind and sweet review, Cyril san. During your tour, I made you more tired even though you had already been so tired. I was too hasty on the day and tried to do so many things just in a short time but failed. I wanted to know your family especially your awesome three sons and show you the beauty of the Imperial Palace which was too dark maybe due to the infuluence of power saving . (Not only the Imperial Palace , the night was much darker than usual . Due to Corona ? the russian special operation ?) I am really grateful for you and your family's kindness and patience. Please enjoy your journey in France fully and make a lot of nice memories with Lisa san and your sons. I hope I can see you again soon and make a better tour for you! It's me to say thank you, Cyril san!!

Wonderful Kamakura Tour

Kyoko was an absolute delight! I asked her to provide a customized Kamakura tour with Kimono. While I was comfortable touring Kamakura on my own, I wanted to make it a cultural tour where I didn't feel like a tourist in a kimono. Kyoko was kind enough to arrive in a kimono of her own, so it felt like we were a pair of friends out for some sightseeing. Kyoko met me at the kimono rental shop and helped me make some decisions with my Kimono. Once I was dressed we took some pictures together. Fortunately Kyoko is talented with how to take photos and help her clients pose for shots. She has a great eye and she took pictures of me at each place we went ! We started at a temple where I could pick up a beautiful goshuin-cho (shrine/temple book) and I got my first shrine stamp in it there. We visited some of the greatest temples in kamakura and the timing was fantastic, since there were still amazingly colored fall leaves. I wanted to have my first tea ceremony while in my kimono and I jumped at the first chance. Kyoko stepped in and asked me to wait for the ideal place and she was right to do so. I had a wonderful tea ceremony experience at the next temple and Kyoko guided me through the experience. We did lunch together at a place of her own suggestion and we ate some delicious classic Japanese food. We did some shopping on the main shopping street in Kamakura and made certain to get some tasty Japanese confectionary and famous Kamakura cookies. Kyoko brought me back to the kimono shop at the end of our phenomenal day. I was sorry to see it end, but it was a memorable and worthwhile experience.

Kyoko K.

Thank you very much for your amazingly long and wonderful review! Your review is just like a travel report by a famous writer!! As you mentioned, I decided to wear my kimono to your tour. Because I thought I won't be able to know your comfortable walking pace if I had not been wearing it. Some people seemed surprised because two women clad in Kimono were chatting in English. It was fun! You looked perfect with a colorful red kimono. I am sure we could give a nice impression to people in Kamakura. Kimono and Kamakura is the best combination. I hope I can meet you again in the near future. Please be cautious against the new corona virus or any other!

Great day in Tokyo!

We hired Kyoko for a one day tour of Tokyo’s main attractions. She was on then, very friendly and very accommodating. We had a great time and would definitely hire her again if we came back!

Kyoko K.

Thank you , Shivani san for writing me an wonderful review. You and your husband are very kind and listen to my explanation very well. We moved effectively by using taxies, so we could move very smoothly and visit many places in short time. It was a nice sunny day for stolling in a garden where plum trees and rape blossoms are in full bloom. We had wonderful Thai curry in Akihabara which was rare chance for me thanks to your nice choice. I hope you will come back again in some better time with your whole family. Thank you very much again and again and I wish your journey is safe and joyful!!
