“ If you want customized fuji experience, go with Fumie! ”

Fumie planned a most delightful day for our group of 10. She went to great lengths before and during our tour to ensure there was something for everyone. We exchanged several messages and she integrated all of the info i gave her about the ages and personalities of our group members into an inpeccably planned customized experience. She even took on connecting us with charter bus company. I cant sufficiently express our gratitude - the day was perfect.

Fumie:

Hi Paul-san. Thank you so much for very quick and good review. You were a fantastic leader of your team. Mt. Fuji even smiled to you despite rainy/cloudy weather forecast. I wish every one of you good luck during the rest of your trip and life ahead!

“ Looking for the PERFECT guide for Mt. Fuji? Choose Fumie! ”

3 senior couples had an amazing day with Fumie while our ship was in Shimizu. We had the perfect view of Mt. Fuji from Lake Tanuki. We were amazed at the beauty of Shiraito no Taki Waterfalls and Otodome no Taki Waterfalls. Fumie guided us through the Sengentaisha Shrine and our final destination was the Mt. Fuji World Heritage Center. Fumie is very charming, proud of her county, speaks excellent English and knows the perfect angles for the perfect photographs. Thanks Fumie for a great day.

Fumie:

Thank you, Claudia-san, for taking your time to write such a superb comment on me. You have a great family and friends! I wish continued good health and happiness to you all!

“ Fantastic custom day tour in Kamakura ”

My colleague and I spent a wonderful day with Fumie who designed a custom tour based on our interest in spending time at zen temples, walking outdoors, seeing early Cherry Blossoms 🌸 and learning about the history of Kamakura. She was responsive to emails and sent us helpful information in advance (transportation, itinerary options), she picked a wonderful restaurant that caters to my vegan plant based 🌱 diet yet offers traditional Japanese food and found us tasty vegan Sakura Mochi at a local confectionary. Her English is excellent; she is fit to guide day hikers (we walked >8 miles and took 88 flights of stairs while visiting temples). Overall a wonderful experience for which we are grateful.

Fumie:

Thank you for taking your time to write a review on me, and good one! I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the time we spent together. I am wishing you the best.

“ a day in shimizu ”

Fumie was a wonderful guide for our day in Shimizu. She took us to many off the beaten path places for a unique tour. She was very accommodating in her ability to modify the day on the fly when our "old feet" were just too tired to go on. She was very comprehensive in providing in advance a spreadsheet of anticipated extra expenses for the tour. She gracefully handled all of the metro fares and provided receipts and change at the end of the tour. Very Professional!

Fumie:

Thank you very much for your nice comment on me. It was a long day with a lot of walking. Have you recovered from the fatigue? I hope I was able to share with you my favorite places around here and good aspects of Japan, and hopefully, I made you want to come back to Japan again some day!?

Thank you for the good review, Nancy-san! It was an honor for me to be a part of your special family trip on holidays. I hope the rest of your trip will be pleasant as well and wish you a happy new year.

“ Hakone Trip ”

From the start of the trip, up until the end, Fumie was eager to help and friendly. She greeted us very warmly as we got off the shinkansen, and even prior to that, she took her time to help us arrange our trip and make plans to maximize our stay. She was thoughtful and made sure we were all present on whatever transportation we were supposed to be using. She was also very knowledgable about the area, and even gave us some trivia on the places we were visiting, which we found helpful and interesting. She was also very conversational and made us feel at ease with talking to her. Overall, the trip was amazing, and it would not have been successful without Fumie.

Fumie:

Thank you, Carmina-san, for your compliment. I might have made you walk too much along the lake, and I was hoping you did not get too tired. Your family has a very warm and strong bond and it was wonderful to working for you. I send my best wishes to you and all your family members for holidays and the new year!

“ Great guide! ”

Fumie was great! She was very prepared and organized. We had a good time in Hakone even though it was raining a lot. She printed out step-by-step instructions for us to get to our next destination. Very friendly. I will definitely reach out next time I go to Japan!

Fumie:

Thank you, AJ san, for your comment. It was pouring rain but I was encouraged by your behavior of seeing a good side. I wish you best in your life and I hope you will have a chance to come back.

“ Day in Hakone ”

We had a wonderful day with Fumie leading our little family of 3 around Hakone. She was very communicative and detailed with logistics and instructions prior to the tour (much appreciated by this Type A person), and was both great at guiding us during our short day in Hakone while building in tons of flexibility since we had a two-year-old in tow. Not only was her friendly and calm demeanor helpful to our tired selves, but she was enthusiastic and attentive to our toddler -- who kept asking where "Aunt Fumie" went after we had to go our separate ways.

Fumie:

Hi Rachel-san, Thank you for your review! It was really a pleasure for me to help your family trip. Please convey to K-chan that Aunt Fumie misses her, too. There are many more beautiful sites to see in Japan and I hope you will come back in the future.

“ Wonderful excursion to Mt. Fuji ”

Fumie took us on a private tour to Mt. Fuji from Shimizu port. She is an excellent tour guide perfectly speaking English with great knowledge of the area visited. The individually tailored itinerary and her adorable personality made this day an awesome experience we will never forget. Thank you, Fumie, for this wonderful tour.

Fumie:

Thank you, Tamara-san, for your wonderful review. But I was able to do the tour for you with the help of other people, in particular, the lady at the tea farm was very caring and charming, wasn't she? I wish both of you best in your life back home!

Fumie took 6 of us on a tour from Shimizu port. She was a joy to deal with before the tour and absolutely wonderful on the tour. Her English is superb and her knowledge deep and interesting . We wish she could have toured with her the whole time in Japan!

Fumie:

Hi Susan, Thank you for your nice comment. Your group was a terrific team, every one of you was a wonderful person, and I was very lucky to work for you. I hope you will continue a wonderful trip in Japan and come back some day.

“ Shimizu day tour ”

Fumie is very proficient in English and she is a very responsible and attentive tour guide. She understood my preference and was able to come up with an excellent itinerary catering to my family needs (with 2 teenagers and a child) with short notice. A thoroughly enjoyable day trip.

Fumie:

E-san, It was a great pleasure for me to guide such a wonderful warm family and thank you very much for your compliment. I hope you had a good time making food samples, preparing matcha for your selves, and walking in a Japanese garden. I wish all the best for your family.

“ Couldn't ask for a better English-speaking guide! ”

Fumie did an amazing job of tailoring our tours to things of interest for my mom and myself. Her English (written and spoken) is outstanding and she has a great personality- we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her! She even went above and beyond to help us out when we needed an extra suitcase to get all our souvenirs home!

Fumie:

Thank you, Susan, for your flattering review. You and your mom were my wonderful guests and I hope you will enjoy your life back home and traveling anywhere in the future.
