Hi, I’m your guide Mayumi. As I have long experience in teaching Japanese history and Japanese as well as English at a cram school, I'm sure I can help you learn Japanese culture, history, and traditions. And I love playing in the nature, such as scuba diving, riding uphill, and hiking in the wilderness. It's also my pleasure to guide you to not only Central Tokyo but also the calm, beautiful rural areas. Let me know your interests, I'll make the best tour for you. Please contact me. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!

“ Tokyo tour with Mayumi ”

Mayumi was punctual, patient and an awesome host for our tour of Tokyo. Her knowledge was excellent and informative delivered with great English. She was kind and caring for my family and our interests. I would not tour Tokyo without Mayumi. Thank you so much for a great day my family loved!

“ Mayumi was Excellent - Highly Recommended! ”

Mayumi was so nice and so much fun. We had three kids with us and she made everything fun and they felt included. She also moved along quickly, as we had asked, so they wouldn't get bored and restless. We were able to see so much...it was incredible. Also, my sister was a chef and mayumi made sure to take us to some amazing food places. Her ramen place and green tea ice cream shop, were by the far the best of the trip. She also showed us how to buy train passes and use them. I can't recommend her highly enough!! -Melissa Roza, Boulder, CO

“ Simply Awesome !! ”

Mayumi is really responsive and knowledgeable. Prior to our trip to Tokyo, she helped organising our two days visit based on our interests. What impressived me most is that one of the places we wanted to visit is very new to her, yet she took the time to do the research and even visit the Shirohige’s Cream Puff Shop to check it out for us first 👍👍 She is very very friendly, attentive, ever so polite and always with a smile. Thank you Mayumi for showing us the hidden gems in Tokyo - we were having such a great time. P.S. Macey is already talking about going back to Tokyo soon so you can take us to visit the Owl, Chinchilla, and Otter Cafe.

“ Turned one day into three days ”

Mayumi is simply the best. Even before we met, she reached out to make sure she had a good idea of what we wanted out of our time with her. We are so glad that we went out with her on our first day in Tokyo. We felt way more comfortable getting around after spending the day with her. She explained where we were and what things meant, how to conduct ourselves at shrines, and most importantly where to eat the tastiest fatty tuna in town. YUM!!! These are just a few examples of what we learned. There are so many more! We ate blue ramen, naturally blue and so good! She also helped us with ideas for the rest of our trip. We did what would of taken us three or four days by ourselves in one day with Mayumi. She even put up with my bad jokes throughout the day. Pro tip: Wear comfortable shoes. We probably walked more than 30 kilometers that day and Mayumi is faster than you. She could have been drafted to the NFL as a running back with her ability to weave in and out of crowds.

“ A day outside of Tokyo ”

Mayumi guided us out of Tokyo on a fantastic tour to Hakone, Lake Ashi, Mt Hakone. We took in an experience on a pirate ship, two rope ways, and the Hakone Tozan Railway. It was a fantastic day and I would highly recommend Mayumi. We saw so much and covered a lot of things in just one day. This would not be possible without an experienced guide like Mayumi.
