Hi, I’m your guide Mayumi. As I have long experience in teaching Japanese history and Japanese as well as English at a cram school, I'm sure I can help you learn Japanese culture, history, and traditions. And I love playing in the nature, such as scuba diving, riding uphill, and hiking in the wilderness. It's also my pleasure to guide you to not only Central Tokyo but also the calm, beautiful rural areas. Let me know your interests, I'll make the best tour for you. Please contact me. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!

Mayumi was very prepared and had discussed at length our requirements well before we met up for the three days we spent with her. She made sure that we had little or no issues with managing my sister's wheelchair and we enjoyed the itinerary immensely. Thank you Mayumi!
Hi Simona, thank you so much for posting such a great review for me. It was actually a great experience for me to be with you for three days. I was moved to see your sister enjoying life while being considerate of those around her even in a wheelchair. I was also moved by your warm heart and dedicated support for your sister. Thank you for including me in your assistance. I learned a lot from you two. I hope our paths will cross again in the future. Have a lovely life! Best regards, Mayumi
Mayumi was our tour guide back in 2018 and we had such a great time with her that we rebooked her when we visited Japan this May. Let me just say that she is by far the best tour guide we ever had. She has a great personality and energy, is knowledgeable, and knows all the special spots to see. Our family of three really enjoyed having her show us around. She met us at our hotel and together we used the subway to get around. She even helped us reserve our seats for our train to Kyoto. I highly recommend her for any tour in Japan.

We had a great tour with Mayumi seeing a lot of modern Tokyo highlights. She was very responsive to all of our pre-tour questions and adjusting the itinerary. She also took special care to help find a lunch place that could accommodate my dietary restrictions (gluten and shellfish allergies). We saw so much and she knew all the best routes to get between locations and shared so much helpful information with us along the way.
Hi Bridget, thank you for posting such a great review for me. I really appreciate it! The first thing that comes to mind when I think of you is that you two are very good photographers. I can imagine that you are busy making an album of this Japan tour. I'd like to see it when you come back to me in the future. There are still many other things you should take pictures in Tokyo, and excursions from Tokyo would be nice next time. I'll keep finding good restaurants for you. Looking forward to our next adventure! Kind regards, Mayumi
My family (4 adults) was tired and hardly had any sleep the night before due to a late flight arrival, but when we met Mayumi the following early morning at the Skytree Tower in Tokyo, Mayumi greeted us with her bright smile and warm hello, and there was a ray of sunshine she brought with her! I had planned a very specific packed 4-hour itinerary with Mayumi (we communicated in advance) that required Metro/subway rides. I did not think we would be able to go to all the places we planned to visit, but lo and behold, Mayumi got us through them all with her organized planning, expertise with the complex Metro system and her enviable energy! It was extremely hectic with fast-paced walking, but this was expected, and she even got us back to our hotel just in time for my family to catch the airport bus that picked us up for our flight later that day! Unbelievably, Mayumi also managed to find a pop-up official Olympics store at the Shibuya area where we were able to purchase our much-desired 2020 Tokyo Olympics souvenirs that we had previously requested to do! Mayumi is a superstar! She is very knowledgeable, remained cheerful the entire time, and it was a delight being with her. We would gladly ask for her in the future if the opportunity arises to visit Japan again, hopefully in a more relaxed itinerary..Thank you, Mayumi, you made our short Tokyo adventure well worth it! We are very grateful.
Thank you Susan for writing such a wonderful review. Your warm comments really encourage me in this difficult situation due to corona virus. I'm happy you really enjoyed the tour with me. As you had to take the bus to the airport and had things to buy and see, we did things quickly. We finally succeeded doing everything we planned!! Thank you again for keeping up with the fast pace. But I really want you to enjoy a leisurely tour spending more time at each place. Please come back to Japan again. I have many ideas to entertain you both in and outside Tokyo. I'm always happy to putting on my thinking cap so that you can enjoy your stay as much as possible. Looking forward to the next chance.
