Yumi is a lovable, sympathetic person with an acceptable English. If she has a deep knowledge of the history & culture of Japan - it was not apparent during our trip to Tokyo. The schedule she prepared was OK. (As far as I can judge). Her warm personality more than makes up for the a/m shortcomings.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dan, thank you very much for hiring me as your guide in Kanto region for your trip and feedback. Yes, I will study deeply and improve more about culture and history of Japan, especially in philosophical perspectives as you suggest. I wish your good health and happiness for all of your family, and success of your life. Sincerely, Yumi

Yumi was an excellent tour guide. It was ashame we only had a short time in Tokyo, but what she showed us was an excellent presentation of the city. Her English is very good which made it easy to communicate. I would recommend her to everybody from Europe visiting Tokyo. She also was a great help at the train station making sure we were on the right train :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elke and Robin, Thank you so much for choosing me as your Tokyo guide this time, and I really appreciate such a great feedback and five stars. It was very nice to meet you, Elke and your boss and clients. Also I appreciate your lovely gift from Antwerpen. In addition, I was happy to know about your business field, the music instruments of Japan (I am ashamed to have not known about Takamine guitar). It was great experience working with you and your party. I wish all the best for you and your company.

Yumi's tour was the highlight of our family vacation to Tokyo. She was on-time, very easy to communicate with, and the van was very comfortable with refrigerated water and wifi. Yumi was very knowlegable and very flexible to hit the quirky things we waned to see, and kept us on schedule to make sure we saw the must-see sites. Yumi interacted well with our daughters (ages 11 & 15) and provided lots of cultural insights between stops.

We spent a lovely rainy day touring around Tokyo with Yumi. She made sure the rain did not interfere with our plans. She was very determined that we cover everything on our itinerary despite the weather. She is a great guide with lots of information about Tokyo. Good with children! Willing to be flexible if necessary.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michelle, Thank you very much for such a lovely comments and 5 stars. I really appreciate them. I wish you and your whole family may be happy and have a good luck. Yumi

We liked Yumi but felt she could have done better. She rushed us at the morning shopping at the temple then was looking for ways to fill in extra time later that day so the pacing could have been better. She failed to take into consideration my request that we eat lunch at a place that took credit cards. I mentioned that to her 3 times and as we drove up to the restaurant she assured me it did. It did not. Then I had informed her we do not eat seafood or drink liquor yet the dinner she preordered had both
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for choosing me as your guide to organize a long day tour packed with many projects.You requested many things and changed some of programs again and again so this was difficult to adapt to, but I did my best.In addition, If I knew your situation in advance,I would have more caution and adapted.Japan is not friendly country to credit card users,it was my memory error that the sushi train we had lunch, supposed to charge the credit cards. However we decided on site on the day to go there.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for 5 stars, Laura!

Yumi provided us an excellent tour. The tour comprised two sites which we wanted to visit and two which she suggested. She arranged for the tour by van, and the driver, too, was excellent. We loved the rushed,fast food Mosburger lunch she engineered along the busy Ginza. Yumi is very knowledgeable, but does not overwhelm with detail, allowing us to explore and enjoy at our pace. We would certainly call on her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas, thank you very much for such a great comment. I really appreciate it. It was very nice to meet you. All the best for you and your family. Yumi

I really had a wonderful time with Yumi. She is very kind, nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend her highly and without reservation. She took me to many different places and my favorite one was the Mori Tower. Such a beautiful view. Yumi, like most of the people I have met in Japan, have a very gentle demeanor and peaceful spirit. Thanks Yumi for a most wonderful tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Deno, Thank you very much for such a lovely comment. I really appreciate it. Please take care and keep going your project to see the world. It was very nice to meet you. I wish all the best with you. A bientôt ! Yumi

Taking a private van tour with Yumi was a smart choice for us. We were in the height of the cherry blossom season and the palace grounds and temples were very crowded. Yumi covered the history of Tokyo in the quiet of the van. The driver was wonderful - always In a strategic place to drop us off and pick us up. With three generations, we appreciated the ease of visiting five different "must sees" in our one day of sightseeing. Yumi was a wonderful guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maenoa, Thank you very much for your great feedback and 5 stars. It was very nice to meet you and your family, and It was enjoyable tour for me as well. I hope you keep well and wish you a great happiness for you and your family. All the best. Yumi
