From the moment we met Yumi for our Shinjuku tour, we liked her right away. We found her to be warm, friendly and genuine. She is very approachable and very helpful. You can feel that she likes what she's doing. Without her, we would have been lost in Shinjuku. She even went out of her way to find us a ramen place close to our hotel which turned out to be delicious! Without hesitation, I can recommend Yumi to anyone needing a guide in Tokyo. She's awesome.
Suzan san, Thank you so much for your excellent review. I' m really glad to know that you were satisfied with the ramen shop. Shinjuku is one of the busiest and most complicated town in Tokyo, which is supposed to be condensed town in Tokyo. All of you are very friendly and nice people, so I also enjoyed our tour. I wish enjoy the rest of your staying in Japan and have a lots of memorable and wonderful memories. Many thanks. Yumi
Yumi is very knowledgeable and provided great insight in her tour
Stanley san, Thank you for the review. I wish your first visit to Japan would be wonderful and memorable and you found many things in Japan and more and more interests in Japan. This summer is very hot, so please come again in other seasons, such as cherry blossom season in spring, or coloring leaves season in autumn. Please come back again with your grandchildren. Thank you again and take care of yourselves.
Yumi was so patient with us on the first day of our arrival to Tokyo from Australia. We are a family of 4 with two young kids. We didn’t get much sleep on the plane so the kids were so tired and hungry but Yumi accommodated our needs. We learnt so much and Yumi’s guide on Tokyo subway system and JR made it easy for us to navigate the Tokyo train system. What a great introduction to Tokyo. Thank you very much Yumi. Nyka and family.
Nyka san, Thank you so much for your review. Our tour day is the first day of your arrival, but you encouraged them to walk around and I enjoyed talking with you and your family. I’m afraid that you are not satisfied with the tour, shopping and so on, however, it is the most important that all your family will be good health and condition during staying in Tokyo and other places in Japan. I’m happy to hear that my information helps your staying in Tokyo. I wish you and your family would enjoy the rest of the days staying in Japan and have a wonderful and amazing memories. I’m looking forward to seeing again in the future.
I had a great time with Yumi who took me to Shinjuku Station and showed me how to work out the right tickets to buy and how to use the machines. We strolled around the area and saw how the Kabukicho and Golden Gal areas look in daylight- far less scary than you might think, a good chance to tailor tours to what you want then went to visit some places I had specifically asked about. Yumi adjusted her pace to suit my somewhat jet lagged state. It’s really helpful to get a feel for the area and station with someone as knowledgeable as Yumi. I now feel much more confident about exploring this area on my own.
June san, thank you for your quick and nice review. Tokyo, especially Shinjuku is really complicated town, but Shinjuku is main town of Tokyo. I hope the information you have gotten today will help your trip for the rest of your staying Tokyo and next visit to Tokyo, Japan. I had very happy time and talk with you. I wish you would enjoy staying Japan and have a wonderful time. Thank you again, ARIGATO GOZAIMASHITA! and we usually say OTSUKARESAMADESHITA at the end of the tour. Yumi
Yumi was an amazing tour guide. She was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and great with our kids on our tour in Tokyo. We were a family of 8 people that included twin 6-year-olds and a 12-year-old. We never felt lost or rushed. We got to see all the important places we wanted to visit and was given great directions to other places we were interested in seeing. Next time we visit Japan we will look forward to booking Yumi for at least 2 days or more, she was a terrific tour guide. We recommend her tour guide services to everyone as she had merged right into our family with ease.
Dear Pinkie san, Thank you so so so much for your exciting and excellent review. I also had a very good time with you and your family. That day was so hot, but your kids are really well behaved in spite of hard schedule. For sure your trip will become a valuable and memorable experience for them. I wish you would make a wonderful collage of pictures of your visit to Tokyo and I’m looking forward to seeing you. I am looking forward to meeting your happy family again on your next visit! Thank you very much again.
Yumi was an excellent tour guide. She took us to places we would have never known about and taught us a lot about her culture. She took us to various places where we were able to taste samples of Japanese food (seaweed, dashi, pickled pumpkin, etc), she took us to a shrine and taught us the ceremony. She also took us to the Washi paper making work shop where we could make our own paper (and speak to a robot); and later she took us to Shinjuku so we could visit the samurai museum and eat next to Godzilla. She was knowledgeable, sweet natured, and communicated with us easily. She was also very accomadating
Hi Romina, Thank you very much for your wonderful review! I also enjoyed walking around with you and your family and I’m so glad to hear that you are satisfied with my special plan for you, Alex, Patricia and your daughters who are so smart and patient good girls. I'm sure that you all have experienced something new and different in Nihonbashi, which become valuable memories for you all. I wish you would enjoy the rest of your days in Kyoto and I'm sure that you will see more attractive and beautiful aspects of Japan and have lots of fun by eating Japanese food. Arigatou!!
Yumi was fabulous she answered all our questions with great authority , with humour and sincerity - my travelling companion and I thoroughly recommend yumi if you are looking for a private guide nothing was too much trouble for her even when we often took her off 'track' both in our sightseeing and our questions. - Yumi also brought along brochures for us which were very helpful in our days ahead in toyko- thanks to Yumi our visit to the wonderful Tokyo was made even better than we could have expected - thank you Yumi
Suzanne san, thank you so much nice message. You and your friend are so active and energetic, and gave me great power, therfore I also really enjoy the tour. In addition, you brought lucky happening here and there. I wish you had many amazing and unfogettable experiences in Japan. Thank you again Suzanne san.
she was a little hesitant to do the tour as she was not familiar with the akihibara area but she covered all that i wanted to see and experience and much more than that she was very well prepared when went out off way to help us .
Hi, Lalitha san, I'm really happy to hear from you and many thanks for your comment. I could enjoy Akihabara tour thanks to your request. How was Osaka and Kyoto ? I think you had very good time and lots of wonderful memories in Japan. I'm interested in Indian food you told me, and now I'm looking for Indian cooking lesson. Cultural exchange is also great fun for me. Thank you again.
Yumi was an excellent tour guide for our family. Despite the rain she kept a cheerful and eager disposition. She was interested in finding out what my kids liked and provided additional advice on where to go.
Lynn san, thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, it was rainy, cold and windy on that day. In spite of changing the plan, you all agreed with me. I'm really happy that you and your kids had a good time at the museum. I wish you all would enjoy staying in Tokyo and visit again near future.
Yumi met us at our hotel and took us via the underground railway to the Meiji temple and Imperial Palace grounds. My wife has dementia and Yumi was helpful, clear, calm and excellent informed company. Her English is good and she answered all our questions. She is great at her job and a nice lady
James san, Thank you for your great review, I really appreciate it and I enjoyed the tour with you and Cherry san very much. You are so sophisticated and intellectual inquisitive, so I could learn many things from talking with you. Cherry san is a very good walker too and her smile is unforgettable for me. There are many wonderful and beautiful places around Japan. I wish you and your family would come again to Japan near future by your quick decision like this time !! In addition, I really wish your daughter, a great athletic dentist, would run at next year Tokyo marathon and you and I will cheer for her along the route side. Thank you again,
