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.

“ Patient, kind, knowledgable in history and pop culture and good with kids!!! ”

Touring with Mayumi was one of the best decisions we made when planning our trip to Japan. She met us at our Airbnb and guided us through traditional customs, tourist spots, history and the railway system all while keeping it interesting. Mayumi was very knowledgable and engaging. We had 4 kids with us (ages 9, 11, 12, 13) and Mayumi seemed to connect with them and make them giggle. We toured 2 days with Mayumi in Tokyo seeing shrines, gardens, Skytree, Tsukiji (outer) Market, Gotokuji Temple, Monster Kawaii Cafe (a highlight for the kids), Pokemon store, Shibuya Crossing, Ginza, Harajuku district and more. She was very relaxed and patient, even with the kids' vending machine and snack obsession. She also had great suggestions for things to do after we parted ways. Mayumi also... read more

MAYUMI:

Thank you so much for posting such a warm and detailed review, Falon. It was a kind of exciting experience for me to find the hidden air bnb. That made me even happier when I finally met you finally. I won't be able to forget the pleasant days we spent together for good. I liked to see your kids trying to eat everything and enjoying Japanese culture. They were polite, and willing to adapt themselves to our culture. We have a saying, "The kids grow up as they were raised." I'm impressed how you are well educating your four children. I do want to see you all someday again. Please say hello to your husband and kids. I loved you all!!

“ We loved Mayumi ”

Mayumi is amazing and the best! She met us at our hotel full of energy, excitement and ready to guide us through our day. We chose her based on her background with history and were not disappointed at all, in fact it was more than what we could have ever expected. Our day was filled with facts, informations and overall just good company. We experienced a great lunch based on her guidance as well. I simply cannot say enough good things about her. I would highly recommend her for sure. Thank you Mayumi for a phenomenal day.

MAYUMI:

Davena, I just noticed that my reply to your comments has yet to reach you though I did write to you before. I'm sorry about that. Anyway, thank you do much for writing such a great review. That was a beautiful day. We had so many things to see, so eat, and to shop in a limited time that our tour was fruitful and pleasant. As I thought the hair stick you bought was really pretty, I got back to that shop the next day to buy one for me. Now I remember you every time I use it. I'm looking forward to the next opportunity I could guide you other interesting places. Thank you for everything again. I love you too, Davena!

“ Best guide in Tokyo ”

This is not my first trip to Japan. I have had many guides in the past. We hired Mayumi for Tokyo tour with our kids. Her English is excellent. She’s very knowledgeable and interesting tour guide. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking an English language tour of Tokyo.

MAYUMI:

Thank you for your writing a great review soon after our tour. It's very kind of you, Brian. It was a pleasant day with several happy unexpected things, which would make your stay in Tokyo even more unforgettable. I can imagine how all of you are enjoying every single moment after Tokyo as well. I hope you discover more yummy food and interesting culture in Japan. Thank you again and please say hello to your family.
