510 characters will not do justice to the wonderful, caring guide Kaoru turned out to be. I have a mobility issue and she took that into consideration in every event and destination. Fish Market and best sushi I have ever had, touring the city by taxi was a breeze. Her knowledge and history insights were an additional bonus. But most importantly, her caring nature made my short visit to Toyko memorable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sally, thank you for your kind comment. I hope you come back again and see more of Tokyo and eat that good sushi once more! Kaoru

A great start to our first day in Tokyo, Kaoru helped us buy our train cards, explained the subway system, toured us through the Fish Market, sushi restaurant, Hama-riku Gardens, waterbus and to the entrance to Sensoji Temple. She is a kind, softly spoken local with a lot of knowledge and a friendly manner making for a very enjoyable morning.

Kaoru was excellent, punctual, knowledable and easy to understand. Kaoru took us to places we actually wanted to see. We saw a lot within 4 hours, Kaoru even helped us find a Halal Indian Restaurant for us to be able to eat in line with our Halal dietary requirements. Many thanks Kaoru. Shof & Rabeya

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Shof & Rabeya, for your kind comment and high rating. I hope you had a nice time in Tokyo and enjoyed shopping.

Karou was extremely flexible, knowledgeable and pleasant. She agreed to postpone from AM to PM due to rain. She took us to the old town of Yanaka, and did a wonderful job of explaining the history of the area. She led us around the temple, ancient cemetery and along the beautiful sakura filled lane which led us into the shopping street. Karou guided us on which yummy street snacks to eat! Then we were off to the Imperial Palace gate for beautiful photo ops. Kaoru's English is excellent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comment and high rating. It was a short time tour but I really enjoyed being with you all. I'm glad that you enjoyed Yanaka.

Kaoru proved to be an excellent guide. She made sure we decided upon an itinerary for the sights we were interested in and was flexible in showing us around.We enjoyed her patience in allowing us time to view things and explained sights clearly. We paricularly appreciated her taking extra time with us in shopping at several Department stores to advise on where we might find items and she made sure we were guided back to our hotel.

Kaoru was an excellent guide. She arrived at our hotel on time. We had just arrived after a long flight & wanted to do some walking. She was very polite & showed us some of the local customs. Sadly she was already reserved for the following day Cynthia

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comment and rating, Cynthia. I really had a nice time with you. I wanted to have more time with you but I'm really sorry that I had already been booked on the next day. I hope that your whole trip in Japan was a great one.

Absolute delight to work with. Kaoru was prompt, professional, and provided a lot of good information about our city. She also worked with me to make sure we were taken care of as we needed to be back at the airport at a certain time. She kept track of time for us and basically managed our day in the city with her! She also provided options for us to consider when coming back! Kaoru is a gem and I highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment and high rating. I'm glad that you enjoyed the day. Hoping you'll come back soon to enjoy longer trip of Tokyo and Japan. ps. Did the electric fun make you feel cool? :)

Kaoru was an awesome tour guide. She explained the historical & cultural info for the temples & shrines we visited. Very helpful in finding the extra stuff I needed to accomplish. No down time, as every second was informative. She was quick & precise with the whole tour process, but did not miss the important sights. Would definitely book her again in our future Japan trips.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comment, Winston. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I look forward to seeing you again to show you more places. Kaoru.

Kaoru is an unassuming guide who accomodates readily to our requests. On the first day, she brought us to the International Origami Centre which seems like a most unlikely spot for Tokyo but our entire family enjoyed it tremendously. Looking at paper is made to meeting the master himself and watching him fold and chat and turn paper into beautiful shapes made my kids day. Ending the tour to Asakusa temple and popping into a local udon shop was a lovely end to a day. Till today, my daughter remembers her

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review, Joann. I also enjoyed the Master's performance too. It was great. And I was impressed that your childeren behaved very well during the whole tour. I look forward to your next visit to Japan!

Kaoru is a lovely helpful and knowledgeable guide. She went out of her way to make things simple and easy for me and to tailor the tour to maximize my limited time in Tokyo and to cater to my interests as far as was possible. It was a wonderful introduction to Japan and to the Japanese people. Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review, Chacko. I'm glad that you had a good time in Tokyo. I'm hoping that you will come back again to enjoy Tokyo much more! Kaoru O.
