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!

“ Great day and itinerary ”

Mayumi was a wonderful and informative guide! She made arrangements for our family to participate in Sampuru making workshop in Kappabashi and also guided us through Tsukiji inner and outer market in the morning. She was flexible while keeping us going from one destination to the next and also had wonderful insight and knowledge about the areas we visited and about Japanese language and culture in general. She even shared suggestions for what to see in the remaining time we had in Tokyo based on our interests. Highly recommended!

“ Great night time tour! ”

We booked an evening tour for our family of 4, with 2 teenagers. Mayumi first took us to popular teenager places like Harajuku and Shibuya. We found the statue for Hachiko and experienced the famous Shibuya crossing. She also made dinner reservations for us at an izakaya restaurant. She explained that it is very common for locals to come to this place after work and she explained to us during dinner some of the history of Japan. We then traveled to Shinjuku to experience the adult nightlife in Tokyo. We saw Godzilla in Shinjuku and walked through Kabukicho and the Golden Gai. Since it was on a Sunday evening, it was not very crowded. We learned a lot from Mayumi on how locals live in the city and where they go. The tour was great! We would highly recommend Mayumi as a guide. She was very knowledgeable and accommodating for our needs.

“ Amazing Tour Experience ”

She were very fortunate to discover Mayumi on Triple Lights. She customized several 1 day and 1/2 day tours for us throughout the Tokyo metropolitan area over an 8 day period. My family ages ranged from 8-70, Mayumi took the time to create unique experiences for everyone. She was always very prompt, super diligent, extra thoughtful and went the "extra mile" each and every time to make this trip of a lifetime very special. Additionally, once we arrived she was very flexible with our schedules. I can't imagine us not using Mayumi for future visits (because there is still much of Japan to see). We would give Mayumi 10+ stars!!

“ Wonderful family tour ”

Mayumi was our guide for a family trip to Japan that included young children, college age kids and adults. Mayumi spent a full day with us taking to us to various sights and points of interest around Tokyo. She was friendly, patient, helpful and very knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited. We appreciated her fluency in English which made it easy for us to communicate. She was very courteous about offering suggestions for other sites, shopping and restaurants we should consider during our stay. We are happy to recommend Mayumi's guide services to other travelers to Japan.
