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.

“ A wonderful introduction to Tokyo, old and new ”

Thank you Mayimi for an action packed half day tour of Tokyo in the rain. We loved the tour and we love Tokyo. Mayimi was perfect and understood well the needs of a family with young children. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour. Thanks again. Jessica, Mitchell, Roman and Scarlett.

“ Amazing first day in Tokyo! Must-do! ”

I booked a Tokyo tour thinking it would be a good idea for the first day to get an overview of the city and become comfortable with the trains. Now I would change that description to “essential”. Having a guide the first day was like making a friend right away in a new city. Mayumi was warm, energetic, and her English is impeccable! Her knowledge of Japanese history, botany, pop culture and transportation is bar none. She was very kind and conplementary to me and my 12-year old son. He said he wished we could hang out with her again!! Also note: I booked mayumi based on her stellar reviews, but also partly based on one criticism she got, which was walking too fast! I knew we would have to walk fast to pack in as much as we wanted to. Do yourself a favor: do not hesitate, book Mayumi for your tour of Tokyo. You will NOT be disappointed. Arigato Mayumi!!!!!

“ Excellent job, Mayumi ! ”

Mayume is a very friendly, cosy, knowlegeble guide which changed our itinerary many times following our requests. I would not tecommend anyone to take a bout trip if you have only 3 days in Tokyo, its consuming a lot of time which you could spend discoveing many interesting areas.

“ Great day in Tokyo with an awesome guide! ”

Mayumi san was awesome! She is very friendly, knowledgeable and fun to be with. We had a big day going to both sides of Tokyo, east and west, but we accomplished it in 8 hours because of her efficiency. In these 8 hours we learnt a lot about the history, religion and culture of Japan. She recommended other places for us to visit in our time and went out of her way to help my children buy some manga books. She also helped us get back to our hotel when she found us lost and disoriented with directions near Sunshine City. I highly recommend her as a guide.
