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!

“ Super helpful and great tour ”

We were in Tokyo for less than a day and Mayumi was really helpful in helping us navigate the city! It was raining when we went so we didnt want to do too much. But we did want to eat. She took us to the outer market of Tsukiji Which was the highlight of our day. We tried delicious seafood. She recommended this white strawberry which was really sweet. Then for lunch we had soba and some really good tonjiru. She also took us to a mall and helped us with shopping for some souvenirs! She also helped us get around the busy tokyo station. She is kind and caring. She shared her umbrella when ours broke! She was a great tour guide and we were happy she was there to help us!

“ Sushi market ”

She gives a good background and understanding


Thank you so much for the prompt review in the middle of your busy travel, Jacob. Your questions gave me an opportunity to rethink our culture and history even deeply. I'll keep looking into those subjects so that I could give my clients better understanding about this country. Hope your travel to other parts of Japan will be filled with beautiful memories. Thank you again.

“ Mt Takao Tour ”

Well, all I can say is wow! Mayumi is amazing. I contacted her wanting to propose to my partner on Mt Takao. Happy to report it all went well! Haha. Thanks to Mayumi our day was perfect. I couldn't recommend her enough. Thanks so much again Mayumi!


Hi Drew, I was so happy to be with you on such an important day. Mt Takao was the perfect choice to do your thing, wasn't it? I can't forget the beautiful cherry blossoms and your smile when you reported it all went well. Can you imagine how I was nervous while waiting for you to come back? Anyway, I'd really appreciate this great opportunity given by you. Please give my regards to Azazi. May your marriage life be filled with love and happiness forever.

“ Mayumi was great ”

Mayumi is an excellent guide - smiling, friendly and very cooperative. She was willing to go out of her way to make our Tokyo trip very informative . She has good command over English (unlike some other triple lights guides).


Thank you for writing a great review, Ullhas. I was happy to accompany your group. I loved that Indian snacks we ate together in the garden. I wish I could cook them myself. Please give my regards to all the members of your group. Thank you again for everything.
