Doll Festival

(16) Reviews

I found wonderful doll decoration at Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku. This will be seen until March 27.

I will take you during my tour. Hinamaturi (Doll's festival) is celebrated on March 3. We display the dolls at home in February and put them away immediately after March 3, because there is a superstition that leaving the doll long will result in a late marriage for the daughter !

It’s not how much you see, but what and how much you can learn in one day, not just about this great city, but also about its people. People like Yumi, friendly, interesting, informative, knowable, willing to go out of her way, all add to one’s experiences and instill an interest and yearning to return.

“ Wonderful day in Tokyo ”

Yumi is a wonderful guide. We had a fantastic day with her. We were able to visit a lot of great places which we would never have found by ourselves. She explained the metro system which is so complicated especially if you can’t read the Japanese signs. We loved the shrines and the temple we went to where we learnt of the symbols and how to offer a prayer. She took us to various shopping places wh...

Yumi met our family in the lobby of our hotel with tons of maps and information about Tokyo for us to keep during our stay. During the next two-hours, she showed us all over Shinjuku, taught us how to use the subway, filled us in on Japanese customs and history, and made sure we were set for the rest of our vacation. She is very sweet and knowledgeable. We all loved the tour with Yumi and highl...

Yumi took me to Tsukiji Fish Market as requested and it was amazing. Her knowledge of Japanese home life was really interesting and I gained a rare and unique insight into Japanese culture through her too. We discussed Japanese foods too. She was extremely caring and attentive and ensured that all my needs were met. Thank you!

From the moment we met Yumi for our Shinjuku tour, we liked her right away. We found her to be warm, friendly and genuine. She is very approachable and very helpful. You can feel that she likes what she's doing. Without her, we would have been lost in Shinjuku. She even went out of her way to find us a ramen place close to our hotel which turned out to be delicious! Without hesitation, I can reco...

Yumi was so patient with us on the first day of our arrival to Tokyo from Australia. We are a family of 4 with two young kids. We didn’t get much sleep on the plane so the kids were so tired and hungry but Yumi accommodated our needs. We learnt so much and Yumi’s guide on Tokyo subway system and JR made it easy for us to navigate the Tokyo train system. What a great introduction to Tokyo. T...

“ Shinjuku & understanding Tokyo transport ”

1 year ago Traveler: June -   Tour Guide: Yumi

I had a great time with Yumi who took me to Shinjuku Station and showed me how to work out the right tickets to buy and how to use the machines. We strolled around the area and saw how the Kabukicho and Golden Gal areas look in daylight- far less scary than you might think, a good chance to tailor tours to what you want then went to visit some places I had specifically asked about. Yumi adjusted...
