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,

Wonderful Memories

Yumiko and I became friends the first day I met her! Her sweet spirit was so refreshing and she made me feel welcome and comfortable. Her English was amazing considering I heard several other guides speaking while we were touring. The itinerary she planned each day was the perfect amount to see and her explanations and knowledge was excellent. I was sad as I waved goodbye from the bus to return to my hotel. I would highly recommend her!!! You won’t be disappointed. A personal note : Thank you for making my trip to Japan a wonderful memory! Love, Mary

Mary, Thank you very much for your heart-warming review!! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your private tours in Tokyo and Mt. Fuji with me. I myself had a pleasant time with you! The beautiful kimono you bought at Omotesando looked very good on you. Please enjoy Japanese culture even after you come back home. I hope we will meet again!! Thank you again, Love, Yumiko

Great two days of touring

Yumiko was an enthusiastic guide who took us too the major sites and to some unique locations and events. We appreciated her knowledge and enjoyed her company.

Thank you for your warm review!! I myself had a great time with you. I believe that watching a special Buddhism ritual at Fukagawa Fudoudou Temple was so impressive experience for you. I hope you fully enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan. Yumiko

What a special experience in Shimizu area with Yumiko as our guide. She was in constant communications leading up to our time together and suggested a wonderful itinerary for our family. On the long rides to and from the port she shared information about the area and went above and beyond entertaining us with origami and teaching Japanese phrases. She took us to a wonderful authentic marketplace for lunch that all the locals were enjoying their Sunday lunch at it was delicious and a cultural treat. We even got to experience all of the Geishas walking to the shrine through the market, a rare treat as she informed us. We were in the area to see Mt Fuji, but the sky was overcast and we only caught a glimpse here and there, but that didn't matter because Yumiko was prepared with the photos of what the scenery usually looked like with Mt Fuji visible, we enjoyed everything even with Mt Fuji being shy. Would highly recommend Yumiko as a guide and we hope to spend a day with her again some day.
