About Tour Guide Mayumi A.

I am Mayumi, SETOUCHI lover and a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter for English-speaking guests.

I left busy Tokyo where I had lived for many years and moved to this calm city Okayama recently in order to change my way of living in my mid fifties. Before settling down here I spent some months like a traveler and found much comfort and amenity of this region. I came to wish to share such value with others.That is why I started a second job as a private tour guide. Honestly speaking, I am not experienced guide, yet I would like to make every effort  to satisfy your requests and make your stay happier.

Okayama is one of the most attractive cities in Western Japan. It is known for Kouraku-en which is one of the three most scenic landscape gardens in Japan.

Okayama has a mild climate and is famous for fruit production such as white peach and grapes.You must love them.

Also the location of Okayama is wonderful, it faces the Seto Inland Sea.You can enjoy idyllic scenery and a lot of outdoor activities are possible.

If you are interested in slow life or inner peace,it is your destination.

I would like to offer you very special opportunities to deepen your experience in Western Japan. Please visit Okayama and let me guide you.

◆My guidable area : SETOUCHI-islands, Setouchi Art Trienale 2019, Benesse Art Site, Okayama and Kagawa

◆Personal life : I am a working mother. I am fond of walks, cycling, skiing and traveling. At home, I enjoy cooking and gardening.

Mayumi A. Japan Tour Reviews

Amazing tour

Mayumi was incredibly prepared ahead and invested during in offering me the best tour possible. Highly recommend.

Thank you very much for requesting Naoshima Guide. Thank you for coming a long way. I hope you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasant season, a perfect day for a trip to the island, but due to the long holiday period, all the sites were crowded and the waiting time was long, and the high temperatures must have been very tiring for you. Your journey continues and I wish you well as you head to your next destination. Please visit the Seto Inland Sea again someday. With gratitude. Mayumi

Very Personalised and Sincere Guide that is so well prepared and Fun to be with

Mayumi is so professional and friendly. My Husband & I had so much fun packed in a day at Naoshima that is so well planned by Mayumi. Prior to the trip, Mayumi is always so quick in replying to my email questions and clear all my doubts. And she planned the itinerary to suits our preference. She so kindly popped by our hotel the day before the tour to leave us some notes that she has prepared for us so that we can go through first and she even prepared a welcome gift :) She made us feel so welcome to Okayama. On the 1 day tour, She came all so well prepared and even have alternative plans for our selections. Her English is good and we have no problem communicating with her. She takes time to patiently go through the details and share with us her knowledge about the island & the Arts in the museums and around the island. We had a wonderful time at the Island and certainly gain more knowledge that will add to our sweet memories. Thank you Mayumi.

I felt like I was waiting for my friend to come to Okayama.You and your husband were very used to traveling in Japan and enjoyed everything. Your attitude reminded me of the nature of travel. Looking at you makes me want to travel to various places with you :) Thank you for visiting the Seto Inland Sea. I enjoyed planning your trip and it was a great pleasure for me to tour around with you, who are full of curiosity and energy. Please come to Okayama again! I’m looking forward to seeing you again.

GREAT guide! Very helpful & accommodating

Mayumi was a wonderful guide for two private tour days in Naoshima & surrounding art islands. From the start, during the planning stages, she was very helpful with suggestions and went above and beyond to help us navigate the various museum entrances, local ferry schedules, etc. I appreciated her detailed responses and that she was always quick to get back to me during planning stages as well. Thank you Mayumi!
