I have guided tourists from overseas since 2009 throughout Japan, especially Kanto region including Metroplitan Tokyo area, Kamakura, Hakone National park and Nikko UNESCO world heritage site. I was born and raised in Kyushu island, the south of Japan and used to live in Kansai area, Osaka/Kyoto for 5 years. Then I arrived in Tokyo and have been here since 1999. I love Japan and have lots of information of history and culture.
I am friendly and have very open-minded characteristics. I am sure that my tour and guiding can fully satisfy you and make you repeat visitors to Japan!
I am looking forward to traveling with you!
A Recent Review of this guide
Yumi was fantastic as usual! We have taken two tours by her while in Japan and this review is for Nikko. She is extremely knowledgable, friendly, kind, and considerate, which are all things that are quite important to us in a guide. The tour in Nikko was everything we could have hoped for and more. The sights, the food, the history and the amazing water! I cannot more highly recommend her, she is a true gem!
