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.

“ Amazing 2 Days around Tokyo! ”

Mayumi is an incredibly kind and knowledgeable guide. She showed us around some fantastic parts of Tokyo and catered to our needs. We travelled with my 3.5 year old daughter and Mayumi was able to tailor our trip to include child friendly activities. I will be recommending Mayumi to my friends and family if they visit Tokyo! Thank you again for your time and sharing Tokyo with us. Elise, Sophie and Vivi xoxo

“ Tokyo Tour in 1 day ”

What an amazing day. Loved Mayumi right from the start. Warm welcome easy to talk to and very informative. Saw some amazing places, ate lovely food and you really made our day a special one to remember. Thank you so much. Kerry & Terry

MAYUMI:

Thank you for giving me a great review, Kerry & Terry. It was such a lovely day. I’m really happy you enjoyed the full-day tour with me. Your adventurous curiosity made our tour more pleasant than usual. I’ll do my homework to entertain you next time. I’m looking forward to showing you more in the future. Thank you!

“ Short but sweet ”

Mayumi spent a few hours with me getting me up to speed on Shinjuku and Harajuku. They were extremely informative with modern and historical perspective. The short personal tour helped inform my 5 days in Tokyo immensely.

MAYUMI:

Thank you for your posting a good review for me, Rod. We saw many places that’d be interesting for you in a very limited time. I’m happy to know that you thought it was extremely informative. I’m sure that you must have been a good guide for your mother from the next day. If there’s anything I can help you when you came back to Japan, please let me know. I’m always ready to guide you to other areas. Thank you!

“ Great Tour! ”

Our time with Mayumi was amazing! She is very knowledgeable about Japanese history and culture. But most importantly, she is very warm and attentive. Her enthusiasm transferred to us, and made our days with her all the better. Thank you, Mayumi!!

MAYUMI:

Thank you so much for posting the great review for me, Cristina. I’m happy to know you enjoyed every single moment at each place in Japan. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. I strongly hope our paths will close again. I’ll be waiting for you to come back to me to enjoy the beauty of another season in Japan. See you again!

“ Highly knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating guide ”

My 15 year old son and I had several days in Tokyo. To make the most of our limited the time we hired Mayumi for two days. She contacted us in advance and we described our previous experiences in Tokyo and interests (I have been there in the past on business but have seen very little of the city and its surroundings). She suggested some different options including the possibility of going to Kyoto for a day (which we took her up on). Our first day itinerary in Tokyo included a visit to the Tsukijji fish market, the Sensoji temple and Asakusa, tea ceremony, the Tokyo-Edo museum and finishing with a visit to Akihabara. Mayumi has a very good sense of how long we would want to spend in each location and is also willing to change or add stops as desired. She planned numerous rest and... read more

MAYUMI:

Thank you so much for writing such a wonderful and detailed review for me, Steven. I’m really happy to hear your words. I enjoyed answering your questions and helping you appreciate various attractions of our country. Do you remember the tea bowls you chose for each other in the tea ceremony? I thought that was a nice choice that shows deep understanding toward each other. Thank you for sharing the peaceful and happy moment with me. And while our Kyoto excursion, we had a great day as well. I’m guiding a guest to so-called Saigoku 33 pilgrimage these days. I’ve rediscovered the beauty of old temples and culture in Kyoto and nearby cities. If you’d come back to Japan, I’d help you have a deeper appreciation of our old history and culture. BTW, I’d say you were lucky enough to see Mt Fuji on... read more
