Kaori did a fantastic job to satisfy our specific tour request by researching, scheduling, and guiding us to places and neighborhoods and experiences we would never have discovered on our own. Smart, informed, and engaging, Kaori was exceptional and went above and beyond to make our day exploring Tokyo one we will fondly remember.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for joining my tour and giving me a wonderful message. I was so happy to guide you and had a great time. Also I learnt a lot from the tour. I hope you have wonderful days in Japan.

We had a wonderful day with Kaori in Tokyo! We met at the Meiji-jinju shrine where Kaori walked us through the history and cultural significance of the beautiful area. From there we went to the Shibuya scramble shopping area and on to Akihabara. My daughter loved seeing the sites and shopping with Kaori. She was a wonderful friendly guide who was able to provide much information for us. I highly recommend Kaori!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Wesley, thank you very much for joining my tour. I had a great time. I enjoyed talking, shopping and eating gelatos with her. Thank you again for a wonderful moments. Best, Kaori

We booked Kaori at the last minute, right in the middle of cherry blossom season! From the outset, Kaori couldn't have been more accommodating. She organised a van to pick us up from the port; was really flexible in terms of working out an itinerary to suit a group ranging from eight to 70 years of age; really knowledgeable about the sites we visited, super-friendly, with terrific English, and even got our daughter's headphones back to us after she left them in the van! Can't recommend Kaori highly enough

We only had a short time in the Hakone area,so we were pleased to connect with Kaori, who made this a wonderful stop on our journey through Japan. We would definitely recommend the tour and Kaori. She provided us with great insight about the region and Japanese culture in general. She also went above and beyond all expectations to help coordinate transportation to our hotel, which was quite a distance from the tour area and required bus and car transit. You can't go wrong with selecting this tour or Kaori

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for joining my tour and writing a review so quickly. It was nice to spend time with you and your family. Arigatou! Kaori

just finished a wonderful day with my guide Kaori. She exceeded my expectations & I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to see & get to know Tokyo. She was invaluable helping me find clients that were difficult to locate & visit with them. Her delightful personality & fluency with English make her a powerful business translator for any English-speaking person seeking to develop business in Tokyo. I look forward to returning to Tokyo soon & engaging her help in growing my Japanese client base.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael, Thank you very much for joining my tour. I also enjoyed the tour with you and actually learnt a lot from you. It was very interesting for me to join the meetings with your clients. Also talking many things to you during the tour was fun! Arigatou gozaimasu and hope to see you again soon.

Kaori was an excellent guide. She was punctual and accommodating. She took my interests in mind and scheduled things that I wanted to see. She is very knowledgeable and friendly. When I come back with other family members we will be sure to schedule her again. If you schedule her I am sure you will have a great time learning about the history and highlights of Tokyo.

Kaori guided my husband and me for 2 days in what was our first trip to Japan. I had sent Kaori a list of the sites recommend to me and she fit it all in including adding a great walk around a facinating residential area and we loved the 2 lunch places she chose for us. Kaori was very knowledgable, patient and thoughtful. Thank you for wonderful insite into Tokyo and Japan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan, Thank you very much for joining my tours! I enjoyed time with you and your husband a lot. I hope you have a great trip in other areas of Japan and safe trip back to your home. Arigato! Kaori

Kaori brings special talents to her tours that combine to make them very special. She has excellent spoken and written English skills, knows Tokyo very well, and brings her knowledge of art and history into the fold. My wife and I highly recommend her and couldn't be happier with our wonderful tour. Many thanks Kaori. Well done!

Once again, another fun and informative day with Kaori. I can't say enough about this charming young lady. Expertise. Professionalism. Patience. A thorough knowledge of Japanese culture, history, and current events. She far exceeded my expectations. For example, Kaori knew that I am a huge Godzilla fan, and arranged a very special surprise for me that was the unexpected high point of my trip to Japan.

Kaori was such an awesome tour guide for our group of 10, including 3 children. She customized the itinerary based on our family's whimsical request to play video games at Akihabara and to take pictures in photo booths in Harajuku rather than the typical shrines and temples. The children adored her and the adults were pleased with her proficient English, young at heart personality and knowledge of Tokyo. She even wrote out specific routes for the subway to our favorite spots.

We found Kaori very friendly, informative and if a pleasant disposition . The only reason we did not rate 5 stars was the tour finished at 15.20 and we thought it was 16.oo. Kaori was planning to include the Hama-Riki gardens in our tour but we had already visited it. As far as we know she didn't replace it with anything. We felt the trip round the Tsukiji Market was quite long maybe that was where she made up the time from the gardens. We had a nice experience and gained a lot of knowledge about Tokyo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard, thank you for the review and I am sorry I could not satisfy your needs. Based on your booking, the tour was 6 hours from 9:30 to 15:30. I added Nezu and Ueno area instead of Hamarikyu garden but I should have explained more when we discussed it at your hotel lobby. Thank you for joining my tour.

Kaori was fabulous. Very easy going, calm and flexible. She was great with my girls! They enjoyed her company and she planned a day that was full of great sites and appropriate activities for three girls (ages 4, 9, and 11). We saw the Sky Tree, Asakusa and Ginza. She assisted us in renting kimonos for the girls and took us a a fabulous local spot for Japanese pancakes. It was a great day!

Love the tour in Tokyo. Kaori was very flexible in our needs, given it was our 1st time in Japan and wanting to still connect with the world. She took us the things we needed to do/get first before we start the tour. It was raining at that time so she's flexible to re-arrange the tour. Just give her different options so she can make sure that you hit all the places.

Excellent tour -- Kaori took us to the fish market, the main shinto shrine, shopping to locals-only boutiques and then to an amazing ramen shop. We had such a great time, we considered booking Kaori for a night tour as well.

This review is for the Highlights of Tokyo tour provided by Kaori M. This tour went to Tsukiji Fish Market, Meiji Shrine and Harajuku, and ended in Asakusa in June 2016. Kaori listened to our requests to eat at a sushi restaurant in Tsukiji, go to Harajuku's Disney Store and Calbee, and avoid stairs whenever possible. Kari shared with us us great information on the history and cultural importance of each stop. She provided us with an area map and highlighted department stores and places of interest.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Shelley, Thank you very much for joining my tour. It was lovely meeting you. Arigato gozaimasu! Best, Kaori

Great experience and exploring Tokyo on our first trip. Kaori was extremely helpful in explaining us the history of various places. It was very caring of her to have taken advance research and efforts to ensure we got a great vegetarian meal!!!!! As well as her recommendations on shopping et al.

We wanted to be shown the local Japan, where everyday Japanese see, and Kaori, delivered on this and more, taking us to several non touristy locations which were very very interesting. Then when we wanted to see Ueno's pandas she took us there where we got some very cute pictures. We would strongly recommend Kaori to anyone wanting to see the real Japan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tommy, thank you very much for fun time today. It was bit different tour from my usual ones and very fun with you and your wife. I just sent you the photo of my Kanikan, crab can recommendation! I hope you enjoy the rest of your days here. Kaori
