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!

“ 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.

“ Mayumi is awesome! Must book! ”

We met Mayumi on our first full day in Tokyo. We could not have asked for a more patient, kind, knowledgeable, & energetic guide to introduce us to the biggest city in the world. She asked about our interests and then designed an itinerary around our interests while taking the time to show us how to navigate the multiple subways lines. Her insight as a local to the area was invaluable, and we also greatly enjoyed her company. We feel we not only learned a great deal about the city, but we made a new friend in her as well. We cannot say enough good things about this experience. She made all the difference in the world for us in our first experience with Tokyo, as we wanted to make the most of the short week we were going to be visiting. Highly recommend Mayumi!

“ Mayumi is personable and friendly. ”

Mayumi emailed me several weeks before the trip and helped organize my two days visit in Tokyo based on my interests. Mayumi is punctual and organized. Mayumi has a warm smile and is pleasant company. As a single woman, I felt safe traveling with her. I would definitely use Mayumi again, and recommend her to anyone who wishes to discover this fascinating city.

“ Perfect guide for a personal tour ”

Mayumi made our stay & touring Tokyo PERFECT! Even with our last minute changes, she was able to meet all of our challenges. Her background as a teacher teaching English & Japanese history, make her a perfect guide. Very professional, friendly, attentive and always with a smile. Thank you Mayumi for such a special time!

“ Fun tour of Akihabara & Ikebukuro ”

I requested a tour for my group of Akihabara & Ikebukuro from Mayumi out of her half day tour of Tokyo. It was mostly a shopping tour, as these two destinations are big shopping centers for Japanese nerds. I would have liked a more culturally oriented tour, but we still had fun and I realize that these two areas aren't historically rich. Also the pace was a little fast for us, but that might have been the jet lag.
