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!

“ Great 5 days with Mayumi in Tokyo ”

Mayumi was our tour guide for five consecutive days in Japan. She was fantastic! Her English was excellent. She was extremely flexible as we needed to adjust our plans several times due to inclement weather. Her extensive knowledge about all the sites we went too was amazing. The first day was a full day tour in Yokohama. She picked us up at the cruise port at the end of our cruise. We walked to a number of places near where the cruise ship docked and then continued on to many other places of interest there. An interesting experience was going to the Cup of Noodles museum where we made our own unique Cup of Noodles. Day two Mayumi picked us up at our hotel in Tokyo and we spent the day in Kamakura. We utilized the train to get around and we found it to be the best way to get aroun... read more


I’m amazed to have such a fantastic and hearty review so quickly! We’ve just said good bye to each other. I really appreciate it, Walter. Your review reminds me of our pleasant 5 days. As you learned everything quickly and moved swiftly, we could complete everything we’d like to do. I was so happy to show you Mt fuji though it has been cloudy lately. We encountered a lot of happy moments and took great pictures. I made sure that you were blessed with great fortune. I also enjoyed jumping in local people and other tourists with you. That’s a great memory for me too. Thank you again for everything you gave me this time. I already miss you! Please give my regards to everyone. Hoping our paths will cross again.

“ Tokyo, Asakasa and Shinkuyu night tour ”

Miyumi was a fantastic tour guide. Lots of fun and very knowledgeable about the different areas we saw. She is very good with children and was very helpful as we needed to visit a pharmacy'. Thanks very much for a fantastic time Miyumi.


Thank you, Melissa. I’m happy to hear your kind words. The medicine seems to work for you. I’m released to know that. How’s your adventure going? I can well imagine how Will is enjoying eating lots of different things at each destination. It’s getting colder especially early in the morning and at night. Please take care not to catch a cold and enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Please say hello to everyone. May your travel be memorable and filled with happy moments!
