What to Expect

1. Tsukiji Fish Market (outer market): Sushi, donburi (rice bawl dish), fresh fruit, and various set meal are available. Various kinds of Japanese kitchen knives are also popular among tourists.
2. Hama-rikyu Gardens: Originally built as the family garden of Tokugawa Shogun, this garden still attracts people as an oasis in urban center. You can enjoy powdered green tea and Japanese sweets at Nakajima-no-ochaya.
3. Waterbus from Hama-rikyu Gardens to Asakusa: Enjoy the view of very unique bridges across the Sumida River.

In the afternoon
4. Asakusa: You can learn coexistence of Buddhism and Shintoism by visiting Senso-ji Temple and Asakusa-jinja shrine. How about buying traditional Japanese souvenirs at the shopping arcade called Nakamise?
Asakusa also offers various gourmet dining. I’d recommend you have quality wa-gyu (Japanese beef) sukiyaki, beautiful tempura, or any other Japanese cuisine.
5. Ginza: Several new landmarks has emerged. You must be impressed by the state-of the art architectures in this district. The streets are lined with long established specialty shops and high-end boutiques.
Enjoy feeling the amazing combination of good-old things and the latest stuff through my tour.

“ Hiring Mayumi was the best decision of our trip! ”

My wife and I loved our visit to Tokyo and our time with Mayumi was a highlight. Mayumi was thoughful, knowledgeable, and fun throughout our entire day together and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a guide in Tokyo.

MAYUMI:
Hello Zac, such a pleasure to hear from you! How's it going? Our tour was filled with good fortune such as the Best Fortune your wife drew at Sebso-ji Temple. Thank you for sharing the wonderful memories with me. It was very pleasant to know that your wife actually loves things like pop culture. I think Tokyo has more exciting things for you to see. I'd be happy if you'd give me another chance to guide you to them. See you again! Mayumi

“ A wonderful day with a great guide ”

My wife and I travel all over the world and have experienced many guides. I can honestly say that Mayumi was one of the best. Smart, passionate, funny, and full of information and history. What more can you ask for. Thank you Mayumi.

MAYUMI:
Hi Bernard, thank you for posting the good review. It was so hot but we could enjoy strolling around several places. I admired how you two are familiar with traveling, handling every condition. I enjoyed taking a breather at the rest house of Hama-rikyu Gardens. The cold powdered green tea was really refreshing, wasn't it? Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness. I hope you'll keep on traveling happily all over the world. Please give my best regards to your wife. Mayumi

“ Excellent knowledgeable tour guide ”

We enjoyed our 2 day tour with Mayumi. She was very organized and easy to communicate with. We saw the major highlights of Tokyo and learned much another Tokyo's history. She bought little souvenirs for my children and recommend a tea ceremony which was really fun. My 9 year old daughter in particular really enjoyed learning Japanese phrases and the art of orgamai with Mayumi. I highly recommend using her for your tour of Tokyo - especially if you are traveling with a family.

MAYUMI:
Hi Justin, Thank you for your writing the great review quickly although you must be tired in the middle of your journey. I was really happy to go with you and your family. I was impressed by how quickly Bella learned everything I told her. I wonder Evan could successfully make you laugh by performing RAKUGO, or a funny story I told him secretly. And thank you all for your patience in the crazy heat during the two days. I hope you’ll have a lot of happy and pleasant moments during the rest of your stay in Japan. Please take care, and thank you again. Mayumi

“ Tokyo highlights ”

Mayumi was a wonderful guide. She was totally in step with our 11 and 14 year old daughters. She took us to all the places we wanted to go. We requested travel by metro and she made it fun and easy (and the Tokyo metro is one of the most complicated in the world!) Mayumi is a fun, flexible guide who is great with families, kids, teens and adults. She is very patient and helpful. We were so sad to say goodbye to her after our time together.

MAYUMI:
Hi Alissa, I already miss you so much! We encountered lots of happy moments and enjoyed every minute of the days together. Thank you for sharing your good fortune with me. I've always hated guiding people in a heavy rain, but I must say that even a heavy rain could be fun. Yes! I enjoyed the rain thanks to your cute kids, Hanna and Sofia. I was happy to hear that you could fully enjoy the next day too. Thank you for the beautiful pictures. Please come back to Japan again, and let me show you other interesting places not only in Tokyo but also other prefectures. I'll be waiting for you to come back to me. Please say hello to your husband and girls. Thank you again, mayumi

“ Mayumi's tour was highlight of our Tokyo visit ”

On our second day in Tokyo, we enjoyed a fantastic full day tour with Mayumi. Her professional but warm and bubbly personality immediately put us at ease. Her English and knowledge of various cultures/religions is excellent. She is a high energy person with lots of enthusiasm. Even though she has visited the sights hundreds of times, she seemed to really enjoy each place she took us. We had a few email exchanges before we arrived in Tokyo so she could plan our tour for what we wanted to see most. Much of it was left to her discretion since she is the expert. We either walked or took the subway. She walked at our pace- a middle speed- and reminded us to drink water. It was well-planned for the most efficient use of time. We saw all of the major hightlights including Asakusa, the fish market, a lovely boat ride on the Sumida River to Odaiba and the Hamaryiku Gardens. When we accidentally happened upon both a Buddhist and a Shinto wedding, Mayumi was able to explain it all to us. She also taught us a few words and phrases. We had a great lunch at a popular local tempura cafe. What a perfect day! Thank you, Mayumi! We hope if you ever come to the US, you will let us know so we can see you. If we come back to Japan, we will be sure to find you again. Cheers!

MAYUMI:
Thank you for those sweet words, Gayle. Yes! our tour was full of happy moments. I'll never forget the solemn ceremony of Buddhist wedding in which many monks were chanting beautiful Buddhist sutra in the temple. I enjoyed every moment of the tour with you thanks to you and Wayne's smile. I do want to meet you again. I'll never come to the US without letting you know. And I'll be waiting for you to come back to Japan and spend great days together again. I'm looking forward to the next opportunity I can entertain you. Thank you again. Mayumi
