Tokyo (Living), Kamakura, Nikko
Hi, I'm Yumi. I'm a government-certified tour guide. I was born and grew up in Tokyo.
So far, I've guided guests from more than 15 countries, and always enjoyed working for them. I am a sociable person and love to meet and talk with people with different cultural backgrounds. I think the greatest charm of Tokyo is that the old and the new coexist with each other. Visit a beautiful traditional Japanese garden with skyscrapers towering at the back, or enjoy tranquility of a big forest surrounding a historical shrine, which lies just next to a very modern and fashionable street! What’s more, Tokyo can meet diverse needs of tourists. Whatever interest you have in – art, garden, anime, architecture and so on, you’ll find the right place for you. I am eager to show you around this fascinating city and make your visit an experience of a lifetime, so see you soon in Tokyo!
Excellent day in Tokyo with Yumi who was a delight to be with. She was very informative and kept the day interesting and adapted our day as required. His English is very good and his knowledge was excellent. She is extremely efficient and will help you with all your questions in Kyoto. I would highly recommend her. Paloma. Madrid (Spain)
Thank you so much, Paloma. I’m glad you enjoyed the day. I had a wonderful time with you, too. I really hope to see you again either in Japan or Madrid! Yumi
Before the tour, Yumi was very prompt to make advance planning for our customized tour. Then very informative and flexible on the day. Hope to ask her the tour again !
Kayako様 お世話になっております。 大変良いレビューを書いて頂きましてありがとうございました。 本件、私も大変楽しませて頂きました。 今後とも何卒よろしくお願いいたします。 Yumiko
Yumi is absolutely lovely and I would highly recommend her! She took us on the city tram tour and it was an amazing experience. Away from the touristy parts of Tokyo, we got to see places where the locals live. We saw the local market, tried some local food. We were even lucky to see a local ceremony at a shrine. Yumi is very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the history of these places. She was also great with the kids. She catered the tour in a way that my 1 and 4 year old would be comfortable. She even thought my 4 year some Japanese customs. Over all it was a great start to our trip. Thank you again Yumi!
Hi Tejal san, I am glad that you enjoyed my tour. I had a really good time with you, too. You are such a nice family I already miss you! Enjoy Harajuku, Odaiba and Kyoto. Hope to see you again in Tokyo! Yumi
Yumi is a wonderful and knowledgeable guide! It was my family’s first time to Tokyo. Without Yumi’s help , navigating Tokyo with children would have been difficult . She catered the tour to the varying ages in our group (from 7-81 yrs) with ease and was still able to cover quite a lot of sites ! Thank you Yumi and hope to meet with you again soon! P.S Thanks for making me try the horse sashimi!! Loved it!
Stacy, thank you so much for your wonderful comment and rating! You were such a sweet family I had a really good time with you. Having the horse sashimi was quite an experience, wasn’t it? Please say hello to everybody, and see you again in the near future! Yumi
