“ What you can learn about Tokyo in one day. ”

It’s not how much you see, but what and how much you can learn in one day, not just about this great city, but also about its people. People like Yumi, friendly, interesting, informative, knowable, willing to go out of her way, all add to one’s experiences and instill an interest and yearning to return. Yumi was the perfect guide for us.

Yumi:

Hi, Lorraine san and Bob san, thank you so much for the excellent review. This time, your staying in Tokyo is limited, so I wanted you to make best use of your time in a productive way. Both of you are so knowledgeable and familiar with Japanese culture, food and so on, and told me lots of interesting subject. I learned many things during the tour and enjoyed sharing the time with you. I would like to make efforts to progress and expand my expertise. I hope you will make wonderful memories in the rest of your staying in Japan. I'm looking forward to seeing you again near future. Have a good journey in Japan !

“ Wonderful day in Tokyo ”

Yumi is a wonderful guide. We had a fantastic day with her. We were able to visit a lot of great places which we would never have found by ourselves. She explained the metro system which is so complicated especially if you can’t read the Japanese signs. We loved the shrines and the temple we went to where we learnt of the symbols and how to offer a prayer. She took us to various shopping places which were all so different and interesting. We had a lovely lunch together. She gave us a lot of interesting information about the history of the places we visited. We strongly recommend Yumi as a guide. A wonderful experience. Thank you so much Yumi.

Yumi:

Hi Catherine san. Thank you for your wonderful review and I really happy to hear that my information helped your first visit to Japan. I also enjoyed the tour with you very much and George san, you’re very nice and wonderful and sophisticated couple, I learned many things yesterday . I wish you would enjoy the rest of your journey in Japan and create many unforgettable memories. Take care and have a good days. Thank you again Yumi

“ Perfect introduction to Tokyo ”

Yumi met our family in the lobby of our hotel with tons of maps and information about Tokyo for us to keep during our stay. During the next two-hours, she showed us all over Shinjuku, taught us how to use the subway, filled us in on Japanese customs and history, and made sure we were set for the rest of our vacation. She is very sweet and knowledgeable. We all loved the tour with Yumi and highly recommend her services.

Yumi:

Hi Beth, thank you for your great review. I ‘m glad your family let me share the first part of your journey and to hear that my information helped your staying in Tokyo and positive journey . You and your family are so nice and wonderful that I would like to share with you all longer time. Please come back to Tokyo again. Wishing you and your family the best for your future and happiness. Thank you again.
