Mayumi was amazing! I feel like we got several tours in one because of her vast knowledge. We not only visited temples and shrines but we learned about the history, traditions, and importance of each place. It was a much better experience than going to see it on our own and we got a lot out of it. She showed us several good food places to try that we would not have found on our own. In Harajuku she gave us a lot of tips that we will use today to go back because we were just passing through. Finally she gave us tips that were just good to know and helped us to navigate better. Book her for a knowledgeable, friendly, courteous, and fun guide! You won't regret it!
Thank you so much for your prompt and detailed review, Jana. I can well imagine you are enjoying shopping and exploring more today. Actually, the tour yesterday was packed with various attractions. Thank you again for walking all the way. Now that you learned about the four kinds of Buddhist statues, differences between temples and shrines, how to pray at each place, and Japanese culture to some extent, I'm sure you'll be able to appreciate places you'll visit after Tokyo even better. Please keep practicing Japanese during your tour. I'm impressed how well you say some Japanese phrases. Above all, your brightness made me happy. I really appreciate that you found me and shared the pleasant day with me. Enjoy every single moment in Japan! I hope your tour to japan is filled with the best of luck!!
