Welcome to my HP!
I'm a government licensed guide and have been working as a guide for seven years. I love my job and I enjoy meeting a lot of people from a variety of countries. I treasure every meeting as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
I lived in the US and the Middle East because of my husband's job. I learned a lot from my experience living in foreign countries. I love to see the world!
I've traveled to 25 countries and 35 prefectures in Japan so far.
My hobbies are traveling, walking, taking photos, music, and Jazz dancing.
I'll make your trip in Hakone an unforgettable one.
Hope to see you soon in Hakone!

Mayumi was prompt in meeting us at our hotel. She is friendly and organized. We saw all of the sights that I had requested for our group of 4 adults. The rain that fell that morning did not deter her. When I return to Yokohama or Tokyo, I will certainly contact Mayumi again to arrange another tour for me!
Dear Rosemary, Thank you very much for the wonderful review. I also had a great time with you in Yokohama. Please give my best regards to your husband and your friends. Hope to see you again in Japan! Best regards, Mayumi

Hello Zoe, Thank you very much for writing a good review. I also had a great time with you and your lovely family. Thanks again for an opportunity to introduce a beautiful national park Hakone. Please give my best regards to two cute boys and your nice husband. Best regards, Mayumi
In October 2016, Mayumi was the private tour guide for my wife and me for her 8 hour Mt Fuji/ Hakone tour and also the 6 hour Photogenic Yokohama tours. Hakone is a beautiful national park with a great view of Mt Fuji from top of mountain reachable with ski lift type cable cars. She is very professional and has wonderful English skills.

This included where to stay, how to get from place to place, and suggested things to do on our own on days before her tours. We took Mayumi\'s recommendation and were very glad that we stayed in a Japanese Style Hotel for our one night stay in Hakone before our tour. We told her wh... read more
