Mayumi was the perfect tour guide for us. Her English is excellent. I think her English vocabulary is better than mine. She researched history for us and set-up a perfect itinerary custom to our needs. Mayumi communicated with us several times before the trip to make sure she was giving us the best tour we could have. She became a good friend and we already miss her. I have recommended her to many friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Vicky san, thank you so much for such a wonderful comment to me. I feel grateful to know you were satisfied with the memorial supecial visit to Fukuoka. I hope this occasion has become the restart for the bonding between your mother hometown Fukuoka and your father hometown, in other word, Japan and the USA.I found similarity among us, you, Tammy san and me. I'm happy that we have become friends! I miss you too!! See you again!!
The previous day we had the luck to have her as our guide in Nagasaki. On the second day in Fukuoka it was like meeting a good old friend. She is so cheerful and accommodating, we enjoyed her company very much and she showed us wonderful places to have lunch and Matcha tea. Mayumi was very attentive and knowledgable. She provided a lot of interesting information and she was also keen to learn about our habits and culture in our home country Switzerland. We highly recommend her and hope to meet her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andreas san and Andrew san, It was me who was very lucky to have opportunity to guide such nice gentlemen for two days. Every place we went was very crowded as Golden Week plus the last day of Heisei emperor era. But your gentle manners helped me a lot! Then a bonus came to us that Komyozenji temple opened that day! The moss garden matched the sound of rain. I owe you a lot for the days. Thank you so much! Best regards, Mayumi

Fukuoka was a very pleasant surpise for us and Mayumi was an excellent guide. After visiting a local shrine and temple we got a lesson on the Buddhist cycle of life from Mayumi. As a special favor to me she helped me find a present for my daughter-in-law. She knew exactly where I could find this present and was so accommodating to our group. I would highly recommend her for anyone wanting to get to know Fukuoka.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eileen san ＆ Jay san, Thank you for a great feedback! I'm very lucky to meet you! The cute deer always reminds me of you, special guests from Cololado! See you again and good luck on your life. Best regards, Mayumi

William R.United States
Mayumi provided a wonderful experience in Fukuoka. We visited a number of the most well known sites in the city plus Mayumi managed to not cross paths with the other 4000 cruise passengers that were in town that day. She is very knowledgeable of the area and provided us with the story of whatever the site was plus interesting background information to give us a better appreciation of what we were viewing. In all it was a day well spent with an excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William san, Thank you for a great comment! You are such great guests that I had a good time with you two gentlemen. I'm sure you had a wonderful cruise journey.Since there are more to see in Fukuoka, I hope you can drop by here in the near future. Best regards, Mayumi

We try to visit annually since we have family here and we couldn't be more pleased. Thank you so much Mayumi! We will definitely be seeing you on our next visit which will hopefully be next year or at most the next Year :)

Dennis StickIrvine, CA, United States
Mayumi was an excellent guide. She is very helpful and wants to make sure you have a wonderful time in Fukuoka. We did! Our cruise shortened our time available so Mayumi worked with us to focus on the most important sites to visit. She arranged a jumbo taxi for us and we had perfect transportation. We loved seeing the cherry blossoms!! Our tea ceremony at the Yusenti Garden was just wonderful. The temple was very interesting. Our ramen lunch was really fun. We could not have done this without Mayumi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dennis san, Thank you for your generous comment!I myself had a wonderful time with you four! I hope you will come back again to Fukuoka! See you again, stay happy! Best regards, Mayumi

Jerry SmithUnited States
Our tour was great. Mayumi was very attentive to our needs and desires. She explained many details about the history and culture of the area. She was willing and able to answer the questions from the four members of our group. Although there was a lot of walking, she always asked if we could handle what was coming next. She had sense for when we needed a break and would take us to a sitting activity such as lunch or tea. I would highly recommend this tour and Mayumi to anyone seeking a tour in Fukuoka

Ting Tina ChenHong Kong
Mayumi is a very friendly guide, as our tour group grew from 10 to 19, she has been ever so patient with all our requests, particularly, taking into considerations the various needs of the different members of the group. In the very limited time, and the group moving rather slowly, she still managed to show us all the major sites, took us to a beautiful lunch, and found time for shopping at the end of the day. She is knowledgable about the city and is very attentive throughout the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your high rating! It was you who paid a lot of attention to all the members in your group. Ms.Watanabe also helped me a lot. I hope to meet you again and take you to a nice ramen shop! Please convey my big thank you to everyone for me, especially to your lovable boy!!
Maria Gisela DavidPhilippines

Mark SaruwatariUnited States
Mayumi was waiting at the best and closest possible area with our private bus. She gave us personal tissues. We visited the Dazaifu Shrine and ate the famous Umegae Mochi. Although the ship's arrival was delayed, Mayumi ensured we had shopping time and she arranged a fabulous 7-course dinner for us! The dinner was the highlight for many! She gave us a personal card on Japanese paper as a memento. We learned a bit about the local history of Fukuoka which was very interesting. Highly recommend Mayumi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your warm comment.I am happy to know everyone in your group enjoyed the dinner! Fukuoka and I wait for you all next time. Have a nice trip!!
