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!

“ An amazing start to our Japan trip!!! ”

Mayumi was incredible and did an excellent job with our family!!! I had been to Japan previously but it was a first for my family. It was our first full day in Japan and we covered a lot of territory and saw many interesting sites. She was extremely helpful in customizing a plan for us and kept in communication with us the entire time prior to our arrival. She was patient and very knowledgeable on all the subject matter we saw, both historical and cultural. Reviewed many guides before picking Mayumi and am very glad I made the right choice! Mayumi is the best!

“ Full day tour to Nikko ”

All of us had a great time on our tour of Nikko with Mayumi. Met us at our hotel in Tokyo and made the day very easy for us. She was very knowledgeable. Also great with our kids. Would not hesitate to use her again. Thanks for a great day Mayumi!


Hey, James. What a pleasure to hear from you!! Thank you so much for posting such a great review. Hope you all are doing well. It was a great day filled with big smiles. I was very happy talking with adorable kids. I can't forget the pleasant smile when they finally got ice cream. I'll be waiting for another adventure with you in the near future. Please say hello to all the members of your group. Thank you again, James.

“ Excellent guide ”

Mayumi was truly a delight. On time, very professional and very pleasant personality. if you want a great experience while visiting Tokyo my wife and I highly recommend choosing Mayumi as your quide and hostess to Tokyo for at least one of your touring days. After having spent one day with her our only regret , we didn't schedule Mayumi for both days.


Thank you for your quick and kind review, Tammie and Brian. It was quite a beautiful day with the beautiful couple. I enjoyed answering your questions, Brian. They gave me rediscovery on our culture. I learned that what's very common for us might be interesting and funny from another point of view. I had a pleasant time with you. I know you are busy travelers. I do want to show you more in Japan. Please come back to me someday in the near future. Please stay in shape until then. Looking forward to the next opportunity.

“ A mix of old and new ”

Mayumi was amazing! I feel like we got several tours in one because of her vast knowledge. We not only visited temples and shrines but we learned about the history, traditions, and importance of each place. It was a much better experience than going to see it on our own and we got a lot out of it. She showed us several good food places to try that we would not have found on our own. In Harajuku she gave us a lot of tips that we will use today to go back because we were just passing through. Finally she gave us tips that were just good to know and helped us to navigate better. Book her for a knowledgeable, friendly, courteous, and fun guide! You won't regret it!


Thank you so much for your prompt and detailed review, Jana. I can well imagine you are enjoying shopping and exploring more today. Actually, the tour yesterday was packed with various attractions. Thank you again for walking all the way. Now that you learned about the four kinds of Buddhist statues, differences between temples and shrines, how to pray at each place, and Japanese culture to some extent, I'm sure you'll be able to appreciate places you'll visit after Tokyo even better. Please keep practicing Japanese during your tour. I'm impressed how well you say some Japanese phrases. Above all, your brightness made me happy. I really appreciate that you found me and shared the pleasant day with me. Enjoy every single moment in Japan! I hope your tour to japan is filled with the best of... read more
