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.

“ Great day with Mayumi ”

Mayumi is full of energy and loves sharing information about her city. Communication was very easy and she was able to show us part of Tokyo we have never seen. Mayumi was able to fulfill our requests to go to specific places to do some shopping and our favorite part eating all the goodie around the city.


Thank you for posting a great review, Michael. Your comments really encourage me to offer even more interesting tours to my future guests. Of course, I'm always prepared for the next adventure with you and your family. Never come back to Japan without letting me know that. Hoping everyone is doing well. See you again!

Very knowledgeable, warm and friendly. She regaled us with inside stories and trivia about the sites we visited. She is fun and always smiling. Her in depth knowledge made our experience more stimulating and fun at the same time. Will book a tour with her again and again. Thank you for the wonderful four hour tour with you Mayumi. You were amazing!

“ Great experience!! ”

Mayumi was a delight to be with—pleasant, helpful, cheerful! She had such a great disposition and connected with my teen sons! She was able to strike conversations with them regarding the places she brought us to! Highly recommended!!


Thank you for sparing time to post such a great review for me, Jennifer. I really enjoyed myself guiding you and kids around. I cannot forget their pleasant face in Akihabara. I wish I could have been with you longer. But I'd say it may be good for us to keep another fun for the next time. I still have lots of things I must show you. I'm looking forward to the next chance. Please say hello to your husband and kids. Thank you again.
