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 choice cannot go wrong with Mayumi ”

We are a family of 4 ages 26 to 64.I am not in the best shape with bad knee's but she did a real good job slowing and adapting the planned itinerary. It was pouring rain that day so very challenging but it went good.How a tourist could manage the subway and trains on their own is next to impossible and alot of time wasted.

MAYUMI:

Thank you so much for the kind review, Susan. Although it was the coldest day with rain in his autumn in Tokyo, I was really happy to be with your family. I was worried about your knee condition during the tour, but you were doing very well and your thoughtfulness made everyone smile. I really appreciate it. I also enjoyed talking with Michael and Cathy. Hope you'll come back to Japan in spring next time. Looking forward to the reunion in the future!

“ A wonderful morning tour of Yanaka Ginza and Nezu-jinja Shrine ”

We contacted Mayumi with a long list of requests for our half-day tour: could she show us the Shitamachi area of Tokyo, while accommodating my photography hobby + very slow walking speed, plus drop us off at a specific vegetarian restaurant at the end? She made all of our requests happen, plus still managed to show us Nezu-jinja Shrine AND help us activate our JR Rail Passes and purchase multiple sets of train tickets along the way. She was charming, warm, and knowledgeable, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. Wish we had booked her for another day!

MAYUMI:

Cynthia, Thank you for writing such a great review. The day we explored the Shitamachi area was quite a beautiful day. We saw a lot of interesting things in the limited time. It was the first time for me to eat the cat shaped yummy doughnut in Yanaka-ginza. Thank you for getting it for me. I'm sure you fully enjoyed your stay in Japan. I still have many things and hidden spots to show you in and outside Tokyo. I'm looking for the next opportunity to see you again! Thank you again for everything.

“ Thank you very much! ”

Mayumi was very communicative and thorough and did a great job!

MAYUMI:

Thank you for your great review, Zac. We had a great day visiting some shops that handle Japanese brands. The beautiful ladies from New York were very much interested in fashion. They wanted to see shops which they don't see in NY. It was my pleasure to show them rather new brand by young designers. Thank you again for giving the opportunity to help your clients find things they'd like. We really enjoyed it! I'm looking forward to the next chance.

“ Japanese last and present ”

If you want to learn about Japanese history and present time Mayumi is the right choice. We asked her many questions about traditions and rules..we learned a lot about history of this great country. But be ready to walk fast and follow her closely 😉..

MAYUMI:

Thank you for posting a good and kind review, Julia. The tree days I spent with your group was quite a great experience. Beautiful days in Tokyo, Kamakura, and Nikko. I wanted to show you as much as possible, but It seems that I should have make it more slowly. I'm always trying to accommodate to my guests' pace but it was not enough this time, I guess.. Your comment reminds me of what's the most important for me. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to rethink about that. I'll keep it in mind and keep trying to improve my tour. Please say hello to everyone!

“ What a wonderful day. We learned so much ”

We could not imagine a better guide for touring Tokyo. Since she is born and raised in Tokyo and she studied history in university, she was a wealth of knowledge. Her English is fantastic and her personality is so delightful. She spent a good deal of time in preparation for our trip in order to show us the specific sights and experiences we wanted. She then was still able to adapt without hesitation when we asked for changed that occurred due to the tour company itinerary changes. We wanted to see. The Nebu shrine, a normal Tokyo residential area, eat where the locals eat and architectural sights. Then we had to add in shoe shopping as I left my tennis shoes at home. She took us to a lovely stationery store where I was able to buy the most precious gifts for the grandchildren ...light weig... read more

MAYUMI:

Hope you are having great days. Thank you for posting such a great review quickly. Our tour focused on the places where you can feel the local atmosphere. I really enjoyed the relaxing tour that day. Thank you for sharing me the beautiful day with me. As I searched places you'd like to eat, it made me more knowledgeable about healthy restaurants. I'll be back there again. I loved it. Thank you again for everything. I wish we'd do another special tour next time! See you again.
