Hello, I'm Yumiko, nationally certified English-speaking tour guide.
I live in Yamanashi Prefecture, which is next to Tokyo and the home of Mt. Fuji.
I myself love to travel, find something interesting, eat local good food, and have wonderful experience!!
I'd like to make your tour enjoyable and memorable.

Mt. Fuji area including the Fuji Five Lakes has many nice spots you must visit.
Walking tour in Aokigahara Forest is my favorite. Cycling around Lake Kawaguchiko is also fun!
Visit to Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Shrine will inspire you with holy feeling.
Quick tour & tasting at Sake brewery are popular as well.
Let's enjoy together!!

I guide you not only around Yamanashi Prefecure, but also Nagano, Shizuoka, Tokyo, Hakone, and Kamakura. For example, as for Nagano, I guide you to Snow Monkey, Zenko-ji Temple, Matsumoto Castle, Wasabi Farm, Nakasendo, and so on.

Please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,

“ English Proficiency A+ ”

We absolutely enjoyed our day with Yumiko! She was extremely informative, sharing plenty of fascinating historical facts with pictures to aid in our understanding. She anticipated the pre-typhoon rains and immediately modified our transportation with our permission. She was always attentive and respectful of our dietary needs. We highly recommend this enthusiastic, energetic, and competent tour guide. Yumiko was special!!!!
