Overview

This tour covers my recommendations in Yokohama. First, let me know about your interests, and I'll make up an itinerary acoording to your preference. If you have other places you want to go, please ask me anything without hesitation.

What to Expect

I’ve noticed that many of my guests are highly interested in Japanese history. When you learn about the modernization of Japan, visiting Yokohama would be an essential part of your tour. As you know, Japan had been under the isolation policy until the middle of the 19th century. You can feel the atmosphere of the dawn of the new nation here in Yokohama. There’s no other places like this in Japan. Because of its history, Chinatown in Yokohama is one of the biggest Chinatowns in the world. There are several historic buildings and museums here in Yokohama too. Not only old things but also modern attractions are waiting for you. Visiting Cup Noodle Museum and enjoying making your original cup noodle is also an exciting experience. In any event, it’s impossible to resist the fascinating adventure to satisfy your intellectual curiosity.

“ Excellent Guide! ”

Mayumi was a fantastic guide. Though I had one place I knew I wanted to go, Mayumi was very helpful in providing suggestions on what else we could do nearby. And I’m so glad she did because she chose a food and crafts festival which I probably never would’ve thought of. My family and I ended up buying several souvenirs here (Mayumi helped negotiate), and then ate some delicious foods. Thanks again Mayumi!

MAYUMI:

Thank you so much for posting the kind review, Brian. I can well imagine you enjoyed exploring the city after I leave you. All of you were such quick learners that I didn’t worry about leaving you after the 4-hour tour. I remember your buying nice craftworks including the beautiful tie-dye, and pretty vases made of Shigaraki ceramic. You were lucky enough to stay in Tokyo during the festival. If you have another opportunity to come to Japan, please visit here in spring next time. I’d like to guide you to a special place where you can enjoy the beautiful spring and experience something unique. I’m always ready to entertain you. Please say hello to your father and bothers. Thank you again, Brian.

“ Clear November Day in Tokyo ”

Mayumi was very helpful, our group of three adults booked her for one day in mid November. It was our second day in Tokyo and the first time in the city for most of us. My wife said it was like taking a tour with a friend. Mayumi gave us a lot of history and interesting tidbits about the city and sites as we went along. When she picked us up from our hotel she suggested that we add a stop at Tokyo Tower because it was a nice day. We discovered what she meant when we arrived, when we were greeted with a crisp clear view of Mount Fuji. It was the only time on our trip we were able to view it. We walked so much, it felt like we walked 20 miles at the end of the day. My wife and I aren’t the fastest walkers but Mayumi was patient and we covered a lot of ground, in addition to Tokyo Tower ... read more

MAYUMI:

Hello Tyrone, it’s such a pleasure to hear from you. Thank you so much for the great and detailed review. Actually, it was the best day to see the breathtaking view of Mt Fuji from Tokyo. There have not been better days since then so far. Thank you for sharing your good fortune with me. I’m also very happy to know that you successfully got the tickets of Mori Digital Art Museum and enjoyed it. How lucky you were! I can well imagine your trip to Japan must have been filled with great memories. And I really appreciate that your daughter has already passed my information to her friends. I can assure you that I always struggle to give the best service to each of my guest. Please give my best regards to her. Don’t forget to let me know when you come back to Tokyo. I’ll be waiting for the day. S... read more

“ Highly recommended! ”

We spent two full days in Tokyo with Mayumi and we can't be happier! She is very personable, energetic, has a good sense of humor and has very good English skills. I can't even imagine how we could have done without her! Tokyo train system is very complicated to start, but after two days of intensive tours, we were comfortable enough to continue on our own. We planned everything together beforehand, but the itineraries are very flexible, as we had to make some changes due to the weather. It is difficult to choose the right tour guide, but Mayumi was the best choice we've made. I highly recommend Mayumi, you will not be disappointed!

MAYUMI:

Dear Edita, thank you for giving me the hearty review. I’m so happy you seem to have fully enjoyed your stay in Japan. I can well imagine how you appreciated the beautiful autumn color both in Tokyo and in Kyoto. I haven’t taken the boat, Emeraldas since we got on board it because it’s too popular to get the tickets. Every time I do the river cruise, I can’t help remembering you. Thank you again for sharing the great two days with me. I really enjoyed talking a lot of things with you and Romas. Please keep in touch and see you again!

“ Wonderful Time! ”

We had a great time in Tokyo thanks to Mayumi. She will accommodate what you need and has a great knowledge of history that is needed in goin to a tour like this. She brought us to a wonderful lunch overlooking the river in Asakusa. She assisted us in going back to the hotel.

MAYUMI:

Thank you so much for writing the great review, Stuart. I was happy to join your annual family reunion. We could complete all we had planned thanks to your cooperation though you were a big group. I won’t forget the beautiful sunset I saw with you. If you and your family members have some time to do sightseeing while you are in Japan on a business trip, please let me help you appreciate another attraction of Japan. Please give my regards to everyone. Thank you again.

“ Tokyo Tour ”

Mayumi was a wonderful guide for our Tokyo tour. We had a whole day visiting different parts of this beautiful city. Mayumi is a excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and also flexible in accommodating to our schedule and points of interests. We enjoyed getting to know her. We will contact Mayumi next time we visit Tokyo.

MAYUMI:

Thank you so much for writing the sweet review for me, Iliana. I well remember your big smile when you stood of the glass floor of the Tokyo Skytree. We enjoyed the very Tokyo-like aspects in the limited time, didn’t we? I’m happy to know you really enjoyed it. There are places you can see different atmosphere and learn more about the history of Samurai period nearby prefecture too. I’d like to show you them next time. I’ll be waiting for you to come back to me. Thank you and see you again!
