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.

“ 7 hour tour of Tokyo ”

Amazing! It was one of the best days of our lives. Mayumi was so prepared. She had the day all mapped out for us and had fascinating things to tell us about every place we visited and about Japanese culture in general. We were travelling with our 2 children who are 12 and 9 years old. She kept them engaged throughout the entire tour. They loved spending the day with her and we will never forget our wonderful adventure. Mayumi also helped us to organize our itinerary for the the next few days. We had to get along without her but she was with us in spirit! I would say to anyone visiting Tokyo, that your trip will not be complete unless you have Mayumi by your side!

MAYUMI:
Hi Lisa, It’s so nice to hear from you and I appreciate your fantastic review. Your family was so nice that I really enjoyed every minute of the tour. Especially, I was impressed to see how well your kids made green tea for you and Jeff at the tea ceremony experience. I’m happy to find all of you are now experts of Japan. I’ll continue discovering more attractions of Japan for my guests. So please let me be with you when you come to Japan again. I miss you all. See you again!

“ Great Guide ”

I sent Mayumi a list of places we wanted to visit in Tokyo and she promptly created an itinerary for us taking into consideration our interests. She picked us up at the lobby of our hotel on time and even gave our daughter a small gift. While traveling, Mayumi told us interesting facts about the different locations in our itinerary which made our sightseeing more meaningful. She is a sweet, kind and knowledgeable guide and we really enjoyed our day with her. Thank you Mayumi for guiding and helping us out. We will definitely contact you again next time we're in Tokyo.

MAYUMI:
Hello Mae, Thank you for those kind words. I’m happy to hear that I made your sightseeing meaningful. I enjoyed myself being with you despite of the terrible cold rain because of the warmth of your family. I have many other interesting places I want to show you, so please come back to Japan again! I’m looking forward to seeing you, Jerry and Bea again.

“ Mayumi is great! ”

Mayumi did a superb job guiding me in Japan. She was thoroughly prepared for every aspect of my custom tour. Her English is excellent and she was both thoughtful and charming. I really felt cared for, and my adventures were wonderful. I couldn't have asked for more and would gladly recommend Mayumi to anyone.

MAYUMI:
Hello Adam, Thank you for hiring me as your guide and posting such a wonderful review about me. Yes! My mantra is “be prepared.” That means doing my homework thoroughly in advance to entertain my guests. But I enjoyed myself at this tour thanks to your thoughtfulness. It was not just fun but a learning experience for me. I can imagine how beautiful and also useful your books are for kids to touch another city and culture. I’m looking forward to your new book, “Good morning, Tokyo” in 2018. I really hope to see you again. Thank you again! Mayumi

“ Best Guide Ever ”

We have had several good personal guided tours in many cities before but our tour with Mayumi was an outstanding experience. We are a family of four with two teenage boys. Mayumi was genuinely interested in our family and connected with each one of us. -planned a suitable, timely itinerary geared towards the teenager's interest while also introducing some Japanese history in an engaging way -Mayumi stopped at our hotel prior to our arrival and left us a letter regarding an enquiry we had regarding data plans for our phones -Mayumi is adaptable, patient, is very fluent in English -She made invaluable suggestions in terms of how we can search for reasonable, good local Izakaya style restaurants. This is extremely helpful as many restaurants in Tokyo can be very expensive. -After the tour, Mayumi suggested that we contact her if we had any further questions. She was willing to do anything for us (she even lent us her cell phone for a few minutes). It was both a pleasure and a lot of fun to spend the day with Mayumi as she has a nice personality and many different interests. We will definitely try to meet with Mayumi again one day. Thank You Mayumi Greg, Colleen, Michael, Thomas

MAYUMI:
Hi Colleen, Nice to hear from you! It’s a great honor to receive such an amazing review. I enjoyed visiting a lot of places with you. Thank you very much for everything you got me. The happy memories of the day encourages me to treat my future guests as thoughtfully as I can from now on too. I definitely want to see you again. Until then, I’ll keep improving my skill as a tour guide so as to entertain you much more! Please give my best regards to your gentle husband, Greg and your handsome kids, Michael and Thomas!
