David H.United States
We used Yumi 3 times and she got progressively better for us each time. She is friendly, personable, and helpful. Her English is advanced but not fluid in our estimation. 1 member of our group had a walking problem and she adapted the pace of our tour well to account for that. She needs, however, to provide more background and context about the sites we saw. She spoke little. We asked multiple questions to get the info and the answers were sparse. She did nicely introducing us to local foods. A solid 3.5
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you for hiring me as your guide this time and for feedbacks. Yes, it was my challenge to handle 4 people in a group with a member of walking problems, in different walking paces. Also it was the mid of national holiday seasons, there are a lot of tourists in Kamakura. Since we took trains and buses which were very busy, we couldn’t help taking seats separately. I explained the history of Kamakura and guided each places well. I am sure I did my best under unexpected circumstances. Yumi

Yumi was outstanding, She made all of us feel very welcome and like family the whole trip. She always made sure everyone was in the group was comfortable as possible on the trains(which can get crowded). She is very knowledgeable and learning more all the time. We will differently be booking her again and again in future trips. Thank you very much Yumi:)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Eric, thank you very much for joining in my tour to Kamakura and for such a great feed back. I appreciate it so much. It was an enjoyable tour with your family, although there are lots of people in Kamakura. I hope you enjoy the rest of your holidays in Tokyo. Best wishes for you and your family. Yumi

Nina CharnleyUnited States
Yumi is a terrific guide. She is knowledgeable about her subject matter and as a terrific command of the English language. In addition to selecting interesting sites for us, and importantly, utilizing detours and short cuts for our slowest and oldest traveler, she selected a perfect local restaurant for our lunch. We learned a lot from Yumi and very much enjoyed her company. She is lovely

My husband and I send our most sincere thanks to Yumi Fukui for an unforgettable tour of Kamskura. Yumi was an impressive guide. Thanks to Yumi, we learned so much about about this historic city. We were able to visit many beautiful places in Kamakura, including the Great Buddha, the Bamboo Garden, and more! Yumi gave us plenty of time to shop for gifts for family and friends back home. She was a perfect guide! We hope to see her on our next visit to Tokyo!

Yumi is a great guide. She took me to Kamakura. We had a variety of experiences: We first went to a tea house in a bamboo forest, we visited many temples in the area, had lunch at a great sushi place, and viewed the Great Buddha! She showed me how to offer incense. Such a memorable day.

Albert BodenhamerUnited States
Yumi is amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. Her Kamakura tour was a lot of fun and educational. She knew the best places to go, and often offered to stop and take pictures for us. This wasn't just a "checklist" tour. Yumi took the time to make sure we were doing what *we* wanted to do. Yumi made sure we had time to take in all the beauty of Kamakura. She helped us choose a restaurant for lunch, helped us with our shopping and translated when we needed. Arigatou gozaimasu, Yumi-san!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Albert, Thank you so much for your great feedback and five stars. I really appreciate them. It was great tour with both of you in Kamakura. I really enjoyed with you. I wish you enjoy the rest of days in Tokyo and safe flight back to your home. All the best for you and your life. Best regards to your wife as well. Arigato gozaimasu, Yumi

Irina BekovUnited States
Visiting Japan was one of the most unforgettable experiences for me and my entire family. I would like to thank Yumi for her guidance during our recent visit to Japan. She was extremely patient and helped me immensely to plan out our trip. She was very attentive to all my question and concerns and was in constant contact with me prior to our arrival to Tokyo. It was an absolute pleasure meeting and spending time with her. Thank you Yumi, we fell in love with Japan and hope to visit again some day.

Kevin CarterUnited States
She was a really terrific guide: good-natured, with excellent English and great knowledge of the sites. We visited Bamboo Temple, Shinto Shrine and the Giant Buddha of Kamakura. She got our family of four around smoothly and indulged a few of our shopping stops along the way including a visit to a wonderful store with Ghibli items just across from the Kamakura Station. My wife and I visited the same store 20 years ago! I would highly recommend Yumi to anyone looking for a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kevin, Thank you very much for your great comments. I am very happy to see it and greatly appreciate it. It was very nice to meet you and your family. I wish your happiness and good health in your life. All the best, Yumi

Joan StetsonUnited States
We saw the ancient sites as well as the people of Japan. We had visited Japan many years ago and we shared how it was then. It was amazing to see the modern transportation systems which she is an expert in manuevering. She made our tour extremely enjoyable. She seemed to sense what we were interested in and steered us in that direction.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joan, Thank you so much for such a nice feedback. I also enjoyed sharing the moment with both of you, and I could image what's going on when you were here 60 years ago. I learned lots of things through your tour and it was great experience for me as well. Thank you again. Yumi

Yumi was a great guide, and went out of her way to customise our day-trip to Kamakura to suit our needs. Yumi was informative and knowledgeable and fun to be with. My partner and I enjoyed her warm personality and pleasant demeanour. I recommend Yumi without reservation.
