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!

I have to go to HK for a trip and decided a stopover to Tokyo since I am traveling on ANA. I researched for a certified tour guide and after days of research, I picked triple Lights . Then I looked at all the reviews for different tour guides and checked videos on them and emailed a few of them, I finally connected with Mayumi and she was great from day one of emails about 3 months ago. Long story short, she was better in person. My brothers and I had a blast for two days of touring. She is informative, excellent manners and she amazes us with all her history info. Even though we book d half day on second day she did not hurry us since we were shopping and she was very patient at the end. If you want a pleasant English speaking well informed guide, she is the one to book with. We will for sure call on her next time we back in Japan From USA
I booked Mayumi from my office in Sydney, Australia. I chose Mayumi for her positive reviews and brief introduction video on the website. I had a good vibe about her and I was right. There was a lot of changes in the lead up to this assignment and I found Mayumi very understanding and accommodating. The planning for this assignment was over some public holidays in Japan but even then, Mayumi was contactable. There was a media component to this assignment and Mayumi ensured she organised the correct accreditation for photography purposes. I unfortunately did not meet Mayumi in person but received very positive feedback from my colleagues who did meet her while in Tokyo.
Ms. Mayumi is a very friendly and cheerful person. We were very comfortable w/ her, she is also very fluent in english. We changed the itinerary on the day itself but we didn't hear any complain from her. She's flexible and sensitive to my mother's pace. We had a great time in tokyo with Ms. Mayumi.
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!
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.
