Fantastic. To have a guide is invaluable. Mayumi is a delightful guide, I learned so much about the shrine, the area and Japan. I would not have seen the area so well without the local eyes and language interpretation of Mayumi. It was a rich cultural experience for my last day of Japan trip. THANK YOU. I highly recommend this company and if in Fukuoka, Mayumi .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Sarah san! It was a great honor for me to show you my hometown Fukuoka! You also gave me a picture of Montana which became a place I'd like to visit! I wish every success on your next stage of life. Good luck!!!! I may be greedier to say " Come and visit Fukuoka again". SEE YOU AGAIN!!

We spent a lovely day with Mayumi. She showed us the places we wanted to go and then she took us to a private kimono place.She did matcha tea for us, we were dressed in all 12 layers and went out to a park for pictures. The ladies who dressed us were lovely and it was interesting to see a Japanese home.She emailed us pictures of our experience.Her English is very good.We used the public transportation with our Pasmo cards so it all went very smoothly.You cannot go wrong booking a tour with her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear M.J san, What a beautiful day! What a lovely comment! Your early booking made it possible to arrange kimono experience which I myself was surprised you looked really nice! My friend Yoko and her sister were also happy! There are more to see in Fukuoka. I hope your further success on your life and next opportunity I can see you again! Best regards, Mayumi
Mayumi was an excellent and friendly guide. In our half day tour, we went to Tanushimaru for persimmons picking and we also visited Kyoho winery nearby. In our short time with her, we can see Mayumi as a caring and helpful guide. She was attentive and concerned to all our needs. Knowledgeable to all our queries too! She even recommended us delicious Taiho Ramen. We had a great time with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Geraldine. Have you returned home safe and sound?How is your husband Mr. Tan? I really appreciate your kind words. I hope you return to Fukuoka with your sons in strawberry season! See you again!
Mayumi-San was an exceptional guide who brought us to a strawberry farm for strawberry picking. We are a family of three from Singapore and I wanted my daughter of three years old to experience and appreciate how farmers grow strawberry. We went to the Kuwano farm, the farm was remote and we couldn't have accessed it without Mayumi-San. Mayumi-San also shared with us interesting facts about her city and we discussed at length about Japanese people and culture. Great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andy-san, Lin-san and Shalala-chan, thank you for coming to Koga and Fukutsu! I myself had a great time with you at Miyajidake Shinto Shrine where cherry blossoms had just started. How pretty like Shalala!I hope you will visit us again in the near future!!!Wishing your further success and happiness!! Mayumi

Mayumi was incredible in helping me with a custom tour, trying to find a house I lived in as a child (60 years ago) on a US Air Force Base (closed in 1964) in a small town. She spent all day before the tour (on her own time) at the town (2 hours driving both ways for her) researching and interviewing people at city hall. Once we were there, she she spoke with locals, and we found the house. Mayumi is knowledgeable, motivated to please, fluent in English and delightful. She has my highest recommendation
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzanne, thank you for your high rating and generous comment! It was you who motivated me and even changed the weather on that day. I hope you will come back again with your brothers and stay longer for authentic ramen in Hakata.

My daughter was traveling with me on a business trip to Fukuoka. We met her at the hotel and spent the day visiting the highlight of the city and had a great lunch that my daughter continues to talk about. Thanks for the great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a high rating! Elizabeth was really pretty with a good manner for which I became a big fan of her at once.It was a hot day before typhoon 11. I was afraid she might have got tired from walking for a long time. I feel relieved to know that she had a good time in Fukuoka. I am looking forward to meeting you again.

Mayumi was a wonderful tour guide! She made my time in Fukuoka all that it could be. She was on time, and had planned out an itinerary with a printed pamphlet with the locations she had planned to visit. She made me very comfortable, and asked if there were any places in specific in which I wanted to visit, which she had not included. She made a well thought out plan, so that we could visit each location, with enough history included and time to take pictures. Mayumi truly made this such a special day!

We had a wonderful tour in Fukuoka with Egg. It was a yearly festival day, and we saw a huge parade and people all dressed up. Egg took us by taxi, subway, and walking, to all the sites we wanted to see. Very informative and stimulating. Her English is good and we had a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barbara and Bob, It is me who had a wonderful time with you.Thank you for your high rating and warm comment. Everyone became friendly when they met you in Fukuoka just because of your personalities. I am sure you will keep amazing travelling and I wish I can meet you again. So please stay in touch.
