About Tour Guide Yumiko M.

Hello, I'm Yumiko, nationally certified English-speaking tour guide.

I live in Yamanashi Prefecture, which is next to Tokyo and the home of Mt. Fuji.

I myself love to travel, find something interesting, eat local good food, and have wonderful experience!!

I'd like to make your tour enjoyable and memorable.

Mt. Fuji area including the Fuji Five Lakes has many nice spots you must visit.

Walking tour in Aokigahara Forest is my favorite. Cycling around Lake Kawaguchiko is also fun!

Visit to Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Shrine will inspire you with holy feeling.

Quick tour & tasting at Sake brewery are popular as well.

Let's enjoy together!!

I guide you not only around Yamanashi Prefecure, but also Nagano, Shizuoka, Tokyo, Hakone, and Kamakura. For example, as for Nagano, I guide you to Snow Monkey, Zenko-ji Temple, Matsumoto Castle, Daio Wasabi Farm in Azumino, Nakasendo, and so on.

Please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,

Excellent Tours

Our family of 5 had booked Yumiko for a private tour in Hakone and Lake Kawaguchiko. Yumiko is kind and patient and spoke excellent English. She has fully customized our tour based on our needs (she even helped to book private transfers for us to arrive safely to our destinations). Yumiko is also very knowledgeable and is able to answer to all of our questions. We will definitely look for Yumiko again for our future japan trip. Thank you very much Yumiko for a wonderful time in Japan!

Thank you for your excellent review!! It was very nice meeting you and your family. Having a "excellent luck" family for two days made me happy too. As soon as I got home, I told my son that your husband took good care of your baby!! I hope you will always have a happy and beautiful life so that we can meet again in the near future. Thank you, Ying. Yumiko

Best highlight of our Japan trip!

I recently had the pleasure of being guided around Kawaguchiko and visiting Mount Fuji by Yumiko, and I must say that she was an outstanding tour guide. Her passion for the area was immediately apparent, and it was clear that she was very knowledgeable about the history, culture, and natural beauty of the region. Yumiko's helpfulness was also notable. She went above and beyond to make sure that everyone in my family was comfortable and happy. She was always available to answer questions, and she went out of her way to accommodate our individual needs and interests. But perhaps what impressed me most about Yumiko was her knowledge of the area. She seemed to know everything about the region, from the best vantage points to see Mount Fuji to the history of the local temples and shrines. Her enthusiasm was infectious, and it made the tour an even more enjoyable experience. Overall, I would highly recommend Yumiko as a tour guide for anyone visiting Kawaguchiko and Mount Fuji. Her passion, helpfulness, and knowledge make her an exceptional guide, and she truly made our tour one to remember. Thank you, Yumiko, for an unforgettable experience!

Thank you so much for your excellent review, and sorry for my late response. Ryan, your tour with your family in Mt. Fuji area is one of the most impressive tours for me. I was glad to hear that you have learned Japanese. Your father and mother were so friendly and your fiance smiled sweetly. I enjoyed talking to your sister! I had a great time together. How is everybody? I believe all of you are well. I hope to see you again sometime. Thank you very much, Ryan. Yumiko

Fun, fun, fun!

First of all, Yumiko was very forgiving when we were late when we erred with a train station mix-up. She had inquired about a Sunday church service, checked out a park ahead of time, worked around my sudden walking difficulties, and most of all had assured us a FUN day. So thankful for her expert escorting this elderly couple. She was such a delight!

Yumiko M.

Thank you for your excellent review, Joyce!! I had a great time with you. Thanks to you, stopping by the church in the morning gave us good feeling. Shiitake picking and BBQ were so fun!! Walking in the park and the plum garden was refreshing! I am delighted that you enjoyed your tour with me. I was impressed by the good relationship between cheerful you and kind your husband. I hope we can meet again in the near future for SUMO watching! Yumiko

Yamaha Kakegawa Factory/Yamaha Innovation Road/Kasuisei

It was a great travel experience with Yumiko san who loves the places and also explained in depth on the details/history of each spot. She is passionate and also experienced as a tour guide. She also provides extra support to me in sending a parcel to my home in post office (as native Japanese speaker), hope can have her again as tour guide for Mount Fuji exploration???? next time. Thanks Yumiko san!

Yumiko M.

Thank you for your prompt and excellent review!! I had a great time being with you!! You are like my old friend. It's rare to visit YAMAHA Piano Factory on a tour, so it was a precious experience for me, too. The countless Hina dolls at Kasuisai temple were amazing. I hope we can meet soon again. Thank you very much, Winnie-san!!
