Kaoru was a phenomenal guide for Sapporo. Our full day tour was extremely organized and we got to see some amazing sites around the city. She brought lots of history about the city and was able to show us places we would have never visited on our own. Bravo, Kaoru!

I am happy that I could meet tourists like you and your husband who appreciated my guiding so much and expressed your satisfaction with my tour.

Tour: Ninja Village (Noboribetsu-Date Jidai-mura) and Hell Valley, Noboribetsu, Japan
Date: Dec 11/17

Kaoru demonstrates professionalism. She was able to make executive decisions in consultation with us on the itinerary due to heavy traffic which affected our schedule. She also personally brought us to the restaurant of our choice at the end of tour even though she did not have to. Though it was not easy to find halal food for us; she tried to accommodate to our needs.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Aishah, Thank you very much for your warm comments about my guiding and tour. Since all of you were very easygoing and flexible regarding some changes in the itinerary, I could easily conduct your tour. I hope you can visit Hokkaido in another season and explore Hokkaido more. Warmest regards, Kaoru K.

Tour: Asahiyama Zoo in Asahikawa, Asahikawa, Japan
Date: Dec 10/17

Kaoru was prompt in attending to our needs and queries even before the tour date. She did her homework to find out about the availability of the penguin walk which was the highlight of the zoo. We were a bit disappointed as there was no penguin walk on that day but we still enjoyed looking at the other animals.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Aishah, Though it was disappointing that you could not see the “penguin walk”, I am glad that you could enjoy visiting the zoo. I want to express my gratitude to all of you for your cooperation during the tour. Best regards, Kaoru K.

Tour: Niseko One-day Drive, Sapporo, Japan
Date: Oct 18/17

Communication not so good.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Patil, I’m extremely sorry that you felt the communication was not so good. I myself thought I could understand your requests, guide you at the tourist spots and introduce an appropriate restaurant in Niseko according to your requests. Basically, it seemed to me that the tour was carried out smoothly. If you felt that we couldn’t understand one another so well, I really regret that. I assure you that I try to have good communication with all the tourists I work with. Best regards, Kaoru K.

We really enjoy these tours. My husband and I have taken a few and we are thoroughly happy with the places that are covered, otherwise we would not had the experience and would be wondering around. We definitely recommend 'ToursByLocals'...
