Mayumi San is a lovely, fun person with great English and knowledge about Tokyo. My 17 year old son and I spent 2 fantastic days ( Mon and Wed) being taken about Tokyo by Mayumi. The first day was in typhoon weather but still thoroughly enjoyable, due to Mayumi’s delightful personality and the thrill of being in this awesome city. She changed the schedule to better suit the weather and we ended up doing some specialised shopping ( very small shoes and retro gaming stuff) on our first day in Ginza and Akihabara, as well as Tsukiji fish market and managing to purchase tickets for DisneySea, thanks to Mayumi’s help. This experience was incredibly successful for both my son and myself and Mayumi was so cheerful and patient. Everything would have taken twice as long if we’d done it by ourselves, therefore we really maximised our limited time. We ate 2 lovely meals at lunch time, including Okinomiyaki, cooked in front of us. I was very glad to have a second day with Mayumi San going to the Sky Tree where we truly got a measure of the vastness of Tokyo, and then contrast that with nearby Asakusa. We saw Mario Car drivers going through Shibuya Crossing, Harajuku and Ometesando Hills. We ran out of time to see Meiji Shrine due to looking for another shop for my son. But we followed Mayumi’s recommendation to go on the weekend as we would be likely to see a wedding, and we did indeed! I wpuld recommend this service and Mayumi San as a guide in a heartbeat. Thank you, thank you, thank you Mayumi San. You will be amused to hear that I went to Diana in Harajuku, and added another 5 pairs to my collection. Total 15 shoes fitted into my luggage!
Sonja-san! I can’t express how I am grateful to you for your writing such a wonderful and heartwarming review. I can’t go back to Ginza without remembering your shopping in Diana. I’ve never met a person who bought that many shoes. Now I’m even more surprised to know that you added 5 more! Amazing!! I’m really happy you totally enjoyed your stay in Japan. I was enjoying myself wherever I went with you and Pax. Thank you for sharing those fantastic memories with me. You have to come back to Japan next year to watch the World Cup of rugby and get more shoes, maybe. I believe we can meet again soon. Thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, Sonja-san. I’m looking forward to meeting you again!
