Hi! I’m Yumi, National Licensed Guide.
Japan has so many charms, must-see spots & must-eat dishes.
Let’s enjoy those with me as you’ve got a local friend. Feel free to contact me to plan your own trip
Golden age guests, family with kids are highly welcomed!
Big cities like Tokyo or Kyoto is wonderful as you know, but the local places like my location is also nice. Reasonable prices, easy to book hotels, not so crowded, etc.
When you travel between Tokyo and Kyoto, why don’t you stop by at Nagoya?
★Let's enjoy something local while you stay in Japan!
I mainly do walking tour using public transportations. Let me know your preferences to make your original itinerary.
I am available for not only for day tour but also evening tour to visit where locals gather and enjoy food and sake at local bars and cozy restaurants.

We (2 adults) spent a day with Yumi in Nagoya area, visiting Nagoya castle, JR Maglev museum, Atsuta Shrine and a dinner at a local restaurant. Yumi is a knowledgeable and friendly person, speaking very good English and we had great time. I am only sorry for allocating only one day for the area. If it is your first time to Nagoya, you will need at least 2-3 days to visit the places we did as well as other attractions and a trip to Takayama and Shirakawa go.
Thank you very much for your kind review for me. I had a really great time with you both. It was very nice to have Kishimen noodle and Sukiyaki dinner together. Talking with you was a big fun for me. You are travel lover, so please come back to Japan and bring other family with you. Arigato, Gal-san !
We had an especially excellent guided tour with Yumi today. She is extremely knowledgeable....her English is very understandable....she was punctual....Yumi is warm, welcoming, kind and a pleasure to spend time with. Prior to our trip we had many texts back and forth. Yumi provided very valuable information which greatly enhanced our time in Nagoya. We spent the morning touring Inuyama Castle and the afternoon at Meiji-mura. A perfect itinerary based on our preferences. Yumi’s tour is flexible to your interests. In between Yumi suggested a lovely Soba restaurant which was wonderfully enjoyable. Nagoya is a city which has much to offer to tourists. There is no better way to see the city then Yumi’s professional hands!!
Dear Anita & Marty, thank you very much for such a worm and gentle review for me. You might be tired after a long day trip, but wrote a polite comment within a day! I am really appreciated. We had a wonderful weather and could enjoyed Inuyama and Meijimura. Thank you for a meal, that Soba was really good. I am pretty happy to know that my messages helped you and we had a very good time together. It was interesting for me to talk about our family or your travel stories. Your grandchild's pictures and movies warmed my heart! You two love to travel, so please stop at Nagoya someday. Take care and enjoy the rest of your trip!
Yumi was waiting right on time on the meeting point we planned. Then she took us in the designated areas of the city (2 for us in 4 hours). Very convenient for us that just arrived in the city. She was very kind and gave interesting comments on the places we visited. We had also interesting discussions on the Japenese way of life. I would recommend Yumi if you just arrive in Nagoya and want a guide to discover the place.
Thank you very much for such a nice review, Christophe. I am so happy to hear your family enjoyed Nagoya. Hope you didn't get too tired just after a long fright. It was very interesting for me to know about France and discuss on the difference between two countries. Thanks again for sharing a great time with me. Merci du fond du coeur!
