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.

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 Tour! ”

Our time with Mayumi was amazing! She is very knowledgeable about Japanese history and culture. But most importantly, she is very warm and attentive. Her enthusiasm transferred to us, and made our days with her all the better. Thank you, Mayumi!!


Thank you so much for posting the great review for me, Cristina. I’m happy to know you enjoyed every single moment at each place in Japan. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. I strongly hope our paths will close again. I’ll be waiting for you to come back to me to enjoy the beauty of another season in Japan. See you again!

“ Highly knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating guide ”

My 15 year old son and I had several days in Tokyo. To make the most of our limited the time we hired Mayumi for two days. She contacted us in advance and we described our previous experiences in Tokyo and interests (I have been there in the past on business but have seen very little of the city and its surroundings). She suggested some different options including the possibility of going to Kyoto for a day (which we took her up on). Our first day itinerary in Tokyo included a visit to the Tsukijji fish market, the Sensoji temple and Asakusa, tea ceremony, the Tokyo-Edo museum and finishing with a visit to Akihabara. Mayumi has a very good sense of how long we would want to spend in each location and is also willing to change or add stops as desired. She planned numerous rest and... read more


Thank you so much for writing such a wonderful and detailed review for me, Steven. I’m really happy to hear your words. I enjoyed answering your questions and helping you appreciate various attractions of our country. Do you remember the tea bowls you chose for each other in the tea ceremony? I thought that was a nice choice that shows deep understanding toward each other. Thank you for sharing the peaceful and happy moment with me. And while our Kyoto excursion, we had a great day as well. I’m guiding a guest to so-called Saigoku 33 pilgrimage these days. I’ve rediscovered the beauty of old temples and culture in Kyoto and nearby cities. If you’d come back to Japan, I’d help you have a deeper appreciation of our old history and culture. BTW, I’d say you were lucky enough to see Mt Fuji on... read more

“ Tokyo day tour ”

Mayumi was wonderful and we had a great day in Tokyo with her. She is kind, thoughtful, and very knowledgeable about the city and history of Tokyo. Her English is also prefect. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to hire a tour guide while in Tokyo.

“ A helpful, kind and amazing tour guide ”

We had the most lovely morning with Mayumi. She arrived to meet us at our hotel and immediately helped us to understand where we were and how to get around the city. She took us to a cool observation deck and explained all about the city. Then she gave us a fun and interesting tour around Senso-ji shrine. She helped us plan our trip, answered questions and was really lovely to spend time with. We really enjoyed our time with Mayumi and would recommend her to anyone looking for a friendly, well informed and fun tour guide. Thank you Mayumi!


Thank you so much for posting such a great and quick review. I can well imagine how your trip is going on. You got a super pretty nail the next day! Now you’re experiencing several kinds of weather in Japan, aren’t you? That’s quite a part of adventure! Don’t come back to Japan without letting me know that. I’d love to guide you to totally different places next time. I’m looking forward to seeing your angel in April. Take care and thank you again, Saskia.

“ A great introduction to Tokyo with a charming and informative guide ”

Mayumi made our introduction to Tokyo a truly memorable one. She helped us to craft a great itinerary, navigate public transport, get our bookings sorted for intercity travel later in our trip and organised some alternative experiences during the day when the weather turned. Mayumi is a very charming and informative guide. Thanks for a great day.


Thank you very much for your swift review, Colin. We had a great day because of your patience in a rainy and windy day as a typhoon was approaching Tokyo. I really appreciate it. It seems that you’ll have consecutive fine days during the rest of your stay in Japan. But please take sufficient precaution against intense heat as it may be too hot and humid for you. I’ll never forget your beautiful smile that made me happy in the tea ceremony experience. I hope your trip to Japan will be filled with beautiful memories. Please give my love to Robyn.
