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.

“ Great time! ”

It was great having Mayumi as our guide through Shibuya and Tokyo. She took us to see so many places and we are so thankful for her. We would not be able to navigate the crowd or the subway with out her.


Thank you so much for your quick and great review, Cindy. I'm sure you made it to Kyoto as you planned and are enjoying its totally different atmosphere from Tokyo. Boys seemed to explore more spots in Tokyo. I'd be happy if I'd be able to guide them to other exciting places next time. Please give my regards to all the members of your group. Hoping the rest of your days in Japan will be filled with even more blessings❣️🙏

“ Tokyo skytree, Gonzaga and Kabuki play ”

We went to the skytree, Gonzaga district and saw a Kabuki play.


Thank you for giving me the high praise, Jerryl. You all are so good walkers that we could complete all the spots we planned in the two days. I really appreciate it. Did your grandkids enjoy the Kabuki play? Even if it's too difficult for them to understand, that experience gives them better understanding of Japanese tradition and culture, I think. I know you had a great travel throughout Japan. Please rest well when you make it home. I'd be happy if you'd remember me and come back to me someday. Please stay in shape.

“ Mayumi made it possible for us to see a lot of Tokyo in a day. ”

To maximize our limited time in Tokyo, we booked Mayumi, and we're very glad we did. Mayumi recommended the "must see" things based on our interests. We loved getting around via the Tokyo subway system; with her help it couldn't have been easier. Mayumi was well spoken, well informed and interested in making sure we saw and did the things that were important to us.


Thank you for your kind review, Scott. I well remember how beautiful that day was. I can say it was not only beautiful but full of blessings. We saw the precious portable shrines ready to be carried out for the festival, and traditional wedding ceremony in Asakusa Shrine. The pretty yellow flowers in the flower field in Hama-rikyu gardens we saw are almost over now. Japan Meteorological Agency finally declared the cherry blossom flowering on March 21, but it takes about 10 days to be in full bloom. I'm really happy you thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful spring day with me. Thank you again for every kindness you showed me during the tour. I'm always ready to help you appreciate various attractions in Japan. Please ask me anything anytime you want to.

“ Daytrips to Hakone ”

Mayumi picked us up at the hotel and brought us to Hakone, where we had a lovely day including cable cars and pirate ship. It was a lovely day and Mayumi took care of everything, it was a great start to our trip to Japan. Thank you Mayumi!


Hi Nicole, thank you for posting a great review. It was certainly a lovely day though the weather has been changeable these days. I've not seen more beautiful Mt Fuji since then.Thanks to your cooperation like you booked the bullet train for everyone including me in advance, everything went so smoothly and we could enjoy must-sees of Hakone without rush in the 8-hour tour from Tokyo. I really appreciate it. As you are a skillful traveler, I'd like to guide you to hidden scenic spots next time. Looking forward to doing the tour in the near future!

“ Well-researched day tour of Tokyo's sights ”

Mayumi was great as a tour guide! Her spoken English is excellent. We would recommend her to anyone wanting to see Tokyo. Before we met, she had researched the places and routes. We discussed various ideas of where to visit before settling on a good itinerary. On the day, she gave us a lot of insight into the historical and cultural aspects of the places we were visiting. There were some little details we loved, like taking us to a good little shop that sells pancakes with bean paste. We went back to our hotel tired but having thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.


Thank you so much for your kind and detailed review, Matthew. As you shared your idea well in advance, I could do my homework so as not to waste time. I'm happy to know you really enjoyed the tour with me. Let's do somewhere off the beaten path next time. Please say hello to Monica❣️See you again!
