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!

Thank you for your kind review, Michael. I really enjoyed myself with you for the two days. You two are so energetic that I'm sure you spent great days after I left you. I'd like to hear about your adventure next time you come back to Japan. Thanks to you, I'm getting interested in rugby now. Please say hello to him!

“ Top Tokyo Guide ”

Mayumi communicated a clear plan before our arrival. She was very prepared, able to adjust according to our needs and desires. My two boys enjoyed her company very much. I would highly recommend that you hire Mayumi, so that you can make the best of your time in a Tokyo.


Hey, Leah. Thank you so much for writing the kind review. Hope you are enjoying everything. Though the weather may not be good now because of the influence of the typhoon, that's part of adventure. You and boys are having several kinds of typical summer weather in Japan. I'm sure you can enjoy any aspects of the tour because you all are such skillful tourists. Considering the coming heatwave after the typhoon, I really admire the plans you've made. I hope you'll enjoy all those workshops and experiences. I wish I could attend them with your kids! Please say hello to your kids. Much love and gratitude!!

“ Amazing & friendly... ”

Mayumi, was absolute amazing, informative, friendly and patient with our children. We learnt how to use the metro and made getting around Tokyo much easier during the hot day. She gave us insights to local Japanese culture too.


Thank you so much for your posting the great review in the middle of your looooong journey. I can imagine you are enjoying the different season in the different country. I hope I'll be able to hear the story of your great adventure when we meet in person again. I wish a happy journey to all of you!!

From start to finish Mayumi was absolutely incredible. If you are looking to hire a tour guide on Triple Lights you need not look any further. She is the best tour guide we have ever had! If you are looking for someone that speaks perfect English, has incredible knowledge about every cultural aspect of Japan, and someone that peers well with your kids...then Mayumi is for you. She is also a wonderful person. If my wife and I were able to pack her up and bring her back home with us...we would have LOL! She made our trip! Thank you so much for the best time ever, you are a national treasure, and the government of Japan should send you a medal for promoting your country so perfectly! Look no further, book Mayumi now! She is far and away the best tour guide on Triple Lights! We lov... read more


Randy! It's so kind of you to write such a great review for me!! There's no better publicity than your warm and humorous words. You are exactly in charge of my sales promotion! I've thought of you every day since our tour was over. I wish I could chase you!! All the members of your group were too impressive for me to forget. We went to many different places, ate many kinds of foods, and laughed a lot. I really enjoyed myself thanks to your sweetness. However, I am thinking more places and things I'd like you to go and experience with me. I'm really looking forward to the next opportunity. Hope your kids and Mrs. Randi are having another wonderful vacation now. I'll be waiting for you to get back to me here in Japan. Thank you again for everything you gave me during the tour!!

“ Seven gods's of fortune tour ”

She did the Seven god's of fortune tour with us and gave a lot of information. It was a long walk but interesting and not to many tourists in the neighbourhood. We liked the local restaurant she took us to.


Hello Van, thank you so much for your writing a kind review! How was your trip throughout Japan? I can imagine how fantastic it was. You are my first guests from Belgium. It was interesting for me too to learn about different culture thanks to my guests. I wish we'd meet again someday. I'll give you another adventure next time. Pleas say hello to everyone!!
