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 StickUnited 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
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jerry san, thank you for the generous rating and comment. I myself had a very happy time with you. You know what?! We walked more than 10000 steps in the tour!!

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!!

Jim BergUnited States
My wife and I requested tour to a specific location in Kitakyushu and Mayumi provided everything we asked for. She even went over and above by personally visiting the requested location prior to our tour. I rented a car in Fukuoka and with her navigation help we drove to Kitakyushu. She was a wealth of information and communicated with a local individual who had specific information about the area we visited. She did a great job and I would highly recommend her services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your high rating. I am more than happy if I could have been a help for your special travel in the four-dimentional Kitakyushu Japan.I also deeply respect two of you in many aspects. I hope we should meet again.
Wonderful day with Mayumi-san. Really thoughtful itinery designed to suit our whole family......including prayers at Dazaifu shrine for academic success along with thousands of Japanese students. A unique experience we would never have discovered alone. Thank you Mayumi-san.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Philip san, thank you for your warm comment and high rating! It was me who had a great time at the beginning of this year. I hope we can meet again in the near future. Say hello to your beautiful wife and girls.
Mayumi is one of the best ever tour guide a person could have! She was very well prepared, extremely polite and awesomely fun! From the first time we met at the hotel lobby, she has already prepared the full itinerary for the day and discussed it with us for our approval. We only had 2 days in Fukuoka but Mayumi has made it a really great and memorable one. For those considering a private one day tour in Fukuoka, Mayumi is the best person there is. Arigatogozaimas-toh Mayumi ('toh' is Hakata tradition)!
Mayumi provided a wonderful tour of Fukuoka for our family of five. The weather might have been a bit rainy but she was a ray of bright sunshine for our tour of the city and beyond. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for to see Fukuoka.
Jennifer KakioUnited States
Mayumi was wonderful and lots of fun. She went above and beyond our expectations. After meeting Mayumi, I felt like we were more like family than a tour group. If or when I come back to Fukuoka, I'll be sure to ask for Mayumi again! Thank you very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such a nice comment and high rating! I was privileged to meet you in person because Mr. Kaito was a real samurai and you were a princess!I am sure you will make your dream come true so please keep in touch and give me a chance to see you again.
It was a very nice trip and we had a lot of fun with Mayumi "Egg". She showed us places, that we as normal tourists would have never found. If I go back to Fukuoka I will definately book her again to show me around.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your warm comment, Mike!I also had a happy time with you, such wonderful witty gentlemen. I am waiting for you here in Fukuoka. I hope your girl friend would love that kimono!!
Cecilia ChanHong Kong
Mayumi was excellent! Her correspondence was always full of great suggestion and at the end she even provided a wheelchair for my father in law in case he cannot walk long. We saw so much in Fukuoka thanks to her excellent planning. The Japanese Garden with Tea Ceremony was the best experience we have there - we learnt how to appreciate this unique culture in a REAL setting rather than touristy.... Thanks to you Egg.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your high rating and heartwarming comment. You are the guests who are the most considerate not only to me but also every person you encountered including taxi drivers. We all in Japan welcome you. Please take your nice family ,Abby Boy, again to me.
Mayumi-san was a fantastic tour guide. We had such an enjoyable day with her. She was very well prepared for the tour and had organised bus tickets for us. Her knowledge of the sights were excellent and she also brought us to the BEST RAMEN I had ever eaten. Mayumi is a very warm and genuine individual who we cannot recommend highly enough. Loved spending the day with her and she made our visit to Fukuoka a very special one. Thank you again Mayumi-san and I will email you soon :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the high rating for me. You and Bun san were really nice couple. It was me who enjoyed the tour the most because of you. Only one day is not enough to explore Fukuoka. Please come and see me again. We have monkeys in Oita, in Kyushu.I wish you a wonderful trip in Japan. I will e-mail you soon too!!!

Mayumi-san was a fantastic guide. Knowledgeable of the rich and significant history of Fukuoka, the important shrines and temples in the area, flexible in her approach and very personable. And she knows where to find the best Ramen this side of the Arctic Circle. It was a pleasure. I highly recommend the tour.
