Kawagoe is in the western part of Saitama prefecture next to Tokyo. It is a long-established commercial town from Edo Era. Unlike Tokyo, it survived air-raids of World War Two because it was in the suburbs of Metropolitan. Thanks for that, there are lots of traditional buildings and houses of different ages in a good condition. Now then, this place is getting more and more popular not only among foreigh tourist but also Japanese tourists.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Friendly, Just Great!

Kahoko is a Pro! It is easily recognizable from many of her actions and demeanor. She communicates with ease, has a structured but friendly manner, and never falters in meeting expectations! From our original communication, to completion of our two tours with her, it was very clear that she is polished, knows how to interpret your needs and answers that call. Upon meeting us she immediately, just from walking a few steps with us, could tell how to pace our tour. She was patient when we veered from the tour plan, and proficiently got us from point A to B with a keen eye and wonderful care! I had made a special request from her for a purchase for my husband, and not only did she find the ideal location for my request, but she additionally picked up another item (on her own time) and delivered it to us at a different meeting! I am immensely grateful to her for her thoughtfulness. We had great fun with her and enjoyed one of our best meals in Japan at a restaurant of her choosing. There are so many good qualities that can be assigned to Kahoko. Efficent, effortless, organized, knowledgeable, thorough, friendly, warm and just a good person, are a few. She is not a text book Historian but a cultural interpreter always full of surprises, energy and a smile. We were a group of four older adults, and Kahoko went out of her way to please all our realms. During our Japan visit, we utilized 8 different guides for various things. While all of our guides were good, and aimed to please, we all agreed that Kahoko topped the list. Her experience shows and gives her a great edge over other guides. Kahoko is awesome! We really enjoyed her and are so very thankful that we found the best guide imaginable! Book her and you will most certainly be pleased with her personable and professional expertise!

Thank you very much for the wonderful review! I don't know how I can tell you my gratitude. I'm not sure I deserve your kind comments, but they are very motivating and encouraging for me. By keeping your words in mind, I feel like keep working and making full efforts for becoming a better guide. With you all, I had such a lovely time. As your cousin union or relationship with your husband are warm and close, it made me reconsider mine positively. Another thank you for the opportunity. I was wondering how the rest of your tour was going . You were able to see Geisha successfully? I did hope so. Probably, you all had a memorable time with full of laughters in Kyoto or other places as well as in Tokyo. I wish you have another chance to come to Japan. I am here and waiting for you ! Until then please take care and stay fit and healthy. Thank you!!

Full Day Tour to Nikko

Kahoko planned our Nikko day perfectly. She booked taxis and Nikko transportation for us and communicated our itinerary well in advance. She is so pleasant to be around and knows much about area. Our day started with a taxi ride to Tokyo Station followed by two Shinkansen trains and then a private driver around Nikko. This would have been difficult to plan myself. Kahako will do all the logistics for you and meet you at your hotel for pickup. Once we got to Nikko we took some scenic pictures and then headed to lunch at a quaint western cuisine restaurant. Then onto two waterfalls an amazing Shinto shrine and Buddhist Temple. On our return she rode back with us making sure we knew when to get off and on our trains. She offers a great tour with a friendly smile. I definitely recommend using her while visiting the Tokyo area.

Gena J.

Thank you very much for the kindest and amazingly prompt reply ! It's a record-making ! It was such a lovely day with a wonderful family from Tennessee--- first time for me. I became a big fan of Tennessee because of you. As a wife and husband, or a doctor and nurse, you are making a perfect couple. I am so impressed that you are sweet and caring each other even after almost 25 years together. After seeing you, I feel like being nicer to my own husband. Probably, he will appreciate you. Anyway, I hope you will have a marvelous time in Osaka and Kyoto. Also, please say hello to Nara's deer. They are waiting for you ! Thank you again, and take care!
