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 great guide for a great tour ”

Mayumi has all the qualities of a great and professional guide: her punctuality, knowledge about Tokyo, flexibility and her sweet personality make her one of the best guide we ever had.

“ TOTAL SATISFACTION!! Covered a variety of sights and experiences with our charming and fun guide ”

Mayumi San is a lovely, fun person with great English and knowledge about Tokyo. My 17 year old son and I spent 2 fantastic days ( Mon and Wed) being taken about Tokyo by Mayumi. The first day was in typhoon weather but still thoroughly enjoyable, due to Mayumi’s delightful personality and the thrill of being in this awesome city. She changed the schedule to better suit the weather and we ended up doing some specialised shopping ( very small shoes and retro gaming stuff) on our first day in Ginza and Akihabara, as well as Tsukiji fish market and managing to purchase tickets for DisneySea, thanks to Mayumi’s help. This experience was incredibly successful for both my son and myself and Mayumi was so cheerful and patient. Everything would have taken twice as long if we’d done it by ourselves, therefore we really maximised our limited time. We ate 2 lovely meals at lunch time, including Okinomiyaki, cooked in front of us. I was very glad to have a second day with Mayumi San going to the Sky Tree where we truly got a measure of the vastness of Tokyo, and then contrast that with nearby Asakusa. We saw Mario Car drivers going through Shibuya Crossing, Harajuku and Ometesando Hills. We ran out of time to see Meiji Shrine due to looking for another shop for my son. But we followed Mayumi’s recommendation to go on the weekend as we would be likely to see a wedding, and we did indeed! I wpuld recommend this service and Mayumi San as a guide in a heartbeat. Thank you, thank you, thank you Mayumi San. You will be amused to hear that I went to Diana in Harajuku, and added another 5 pairs to my collection. Total 15 shoes fitted into my luggage!

“ Highlights of Tokyo ”

Mayumi-San was fantastic. Her knowledge of multiple aspects of Japanese life, culture and history was informative and really good fun. From diverse activities such as the Meiji Shrine to the Tokyo Fish Market to Electric town Mayumi-SAN had lots of experience and knew where to go and what to see to ensure we had a great time. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends and colleagues when they visit Japan and suggest that you hire her on your next trip to Tokyo.

“ Tokyo tpur ”

Excellent tour. Mayumi was wonderful with explaining everything about Tokyo to the children. She was very engaging with them and she helped us learn a lot about Tokyo. Additionally, she gave us a lot of information and insight with Tokyo mass transit with made it very easy for us to get around the city on our own for the rest of our stay in Tokyo.

“ Great two days in tokyo ”

Mayumi did a great job showing us Tokyo. We had two days with her. Our group was a family of 2 adults, 3 teens, and 1 six year old. She developed a two day itinerary based on some of the ideas we gave her plus some of her own. She picked us up at the hotel each day and expertly led us around the subway system to visit all the sites with good stops for lunch etc. She has a very pleasant way of leading the group, offering just enough information, and adjusting to the needs of everyone in our group. Thank you!
