She met me at my hotel and we spent the day exploring Tokyo by train and on foot. At the end of our tour she returned me to my hotel and gave me b...

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...

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...

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...
