“ A fantastic tour guide! ”

Yumi was an amazing tour guide. She was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and great with our kids on our tour in Tokyo. We were a family of 8 people that included twin 6-year-olds and a 12-year-old. We never felt lost or rushed. We got to see all the important places we wanted to visit and was given great directions to other places we were interested in seeing. Next time we visit Japan we will look forward to booking Yumi for at least 2 days or more, she was a terrific tour guide. We recommend her tour guide services to everyone as she had merged right into our family with ease.

“ Sightseeing in Nihonbashi ”

Yumi was an excellent tour guide. She took us to places we would have never known about and taught us a lot about her culture. She took us to various places where we were able to taste samples of Japanese food (seaweed, dashi, pickled pumpkin, etc), she took us to a shrine and taught us the ceremony. She also took us to the Washi paper making work shop where we could make our own paper (and speak to a robot); and later she took us to Shinjuku so we could visit the samurai museum and eat next to Godzilla. She was knowledgeable, sweet natured, and communicated with us easily. She was also very accomadating

“ Shinjuku and surrounds ”

Yumi was fabulous she answered all our questions with great authority , with humour and sincerity - my travelling companion and I thoroughly recommend yumi if you are looking for a private guide nothing was too much trouble for her even when we often took her off 'track' both in our sightseeing and our questions. - Yumi also brought along brochures for us which were very helpful in our days ahead in toyko- thanks to Yumi our visit to the wonderful Tokyo was made even better than we could have expected - thank you Yumi

“ Highly recommend ”

Yumi was an excellent tour guide for our family. Despite the rain she kept a cheerful and eager disposition. She was interested in finding out what my kids liked and provided additional advice on where to go.

“ Meiji Temple and Imperial Palace grounds a great visit ”

Yumi met us at our hotel and took us via the underground railway to the Meiji temple and Imperial Palace grounds. My wife has dementia and Yumi was helpful, clear, calm and excellent informed company. Her English is good and she answered all our questions. She is great at her job and a nice lady
