Yumi-san was such a wonderful welcome back to Japan after so long. She went the extra mile in contacting key locations to ensure that we got the most of our time together exploring Tokyo and was always so friendly. Cannot recommend her enough ありがとうございます！
Steven san, Thank you so much for your review. I really enjoyed talking and shopping with you. You know a lot of Japanese things and shops etc., in Tokyo and understand Japanese, so I was really surprised at your knowledge. I wish you and your wife and boy would be back in Tokyo when your boy is 5 years old for the celebration of 753. This time was not enough time, so please come back again to enjoy traveling around many places in Japan. Thank you again. Yumi
I would like to thank Yumi for being an excellent guide. She was very communicative prior to the tour to ensure we were focusing on the right experiences. It was a quick 2 hour tour but we covered a lot of ground and saw many different aspects of the Shinjuku area ranging from the old to the new. Yumi made a strong personal connection and I strongly recommend her for your next tour.
Sanjay san, Thank you so much for your review. Our tour day is the first day of your arrival, so you and your cute daughter woke up early without sound sleep, but you walked a long way without fatigue. I enjoyed talking with you and your smart girl. Did she enjoy Harajuku and Sanrio land? Did you have wonderful and amazing memories? Shinjuku is a city with many faces, and although we were not able to experience the deep Shinjuku at night, I hope you will enjoy a different Shinjuku next time. I had a lot of fun by communicating with the two of you even in the short time we had together, and I learned a lot from you. It was really fun! Please come to Tokyo again with your family. I’m looking forward to seeing you again in the future. Yumi
I booked Yumi for my first day in Tokyo to show me around and to help me learn the subway system. Yumi responded very quickly to my enquiry and after finding out which places I was interested in visiting, she came up with a plan for our day together. She met me at my hotel and we spent the day exploring Tokyo by train and on foot. At the end of our tour she returned me to my hotel and gave me brochures and maps so that I could continue exploring the city by myself during the following two days that I was there. I really enjoyed my day with Yumi, she was very friendly, extremely helpful and it felt like I was being shown around the city by a friend. I would highly recommend Yumi as a guide.
Penny san, Thank you so much for your excellent review. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your first visit to Tokyo. In Tokyo, transportation network is very complicated, so I wanted you to learn how to use the convenient network in Tokyo and enjoy staying in Tokyo. I'm so happy it seems to have worked and as well that you remember all the time we shared. I also enjoy the tour with you to talk about many things. Thank you so much and please come again with your family. Yumi
