Excellent Custom Tour!

My energetic family requested a custom tour to authentic local festivals and flea markets and around the busiest, most intimidating parts of Tokyo, Shibuya and Shinjuku. Kaori was an amazing and fun tour guide! She knew a lot of information about local events and landmarks, showed us how to get around on the train lines nearest our hotel and provided maps, and even lead us to some special landmarks she knew our group would enjoy. She put together a perfect itinerary and helped us make it in time to see everything we wanted to see and eat all the snacks we wanted. She also has great stories about her own travels. I'm very happy to recommend Kaori!

Angela H.

Hi Angela san, thank you so much for giving such a wonderful review! Also thank you for making a special request to enjoy festivals and flea markets! The complete different atmosphere of two different shinto shrines was so interesting to share with laugh. You and your family are such independent experienced travelers. I’m so happy that you found me and chose me as your guide to experience local life together. As you already know, I love guiding, but more than that, love meeting & talking with people like you from all over the world. Such fun to be a guide in Japan! Hope to meet you again for another local adventure! Hugs and kisses, Kaori

Private Hakone - one day trip from Tokyo

Tokyo
10 hours

A wonderful day

We had wanted to try and get a good view of Fuji and ride a bullet train while in Japan. We gave these two wishes to Kaori and she produced a unique itinerary that was a ton of fun. She guided our group of four through 5 different trains, a boat, bus, rope car and cable car. She knew all about the local area and at the end of the day even showed us a good spot for dinner. Kaori is a very happy, easy going, and super knowledgeable guide. There is no way we could have navigated this on our own and we would highly recommend Kaori for any tour in Japan.

Leon S.

What a surprise that you gave me the nicest review so quickly, just after the tour!! Cannot thank you enough. So glad we made it!! Fortunately, today’s Hakone was greatly better than expected with Mt.Fuji view. Also, thank you for your warmest word - I’m a very happy person. YES, I was happy to be with you all. I’ve got some memorable moments today, which will surely make me smile from time to time. Please pass "Arigato gozaimasu" to all of them! Enjoy your cruise trip! Hugs and kisses, Kaori

Great local knowledge

Kaori gave us a guided tour of two famous Japanese gardens. Her knowledge of all the flora and trees was incredible along with the history behind many of the sites. She then suggested a fabulous local restaurant for lunch that was fantastic. We highly recommend Kaori!

Leon S.

Thank you, Leon-san, for an excellent review on my tour! It was such a lovely day to visit nice gardens. Satsuki azaleas were so pretty in pink in Rikugien garden. Roses were so beautiful in Shinjuku gyoen national garden. So glad you both enjoyed local lunch and the day with me together! Hugs and kisses, Kaori
