“ Soft spoken/knowledgeable/Good comm skills/ ”

Masatsugu demonstrated a lot of passion in showing us around Very flexible to our needs , patient and very good with all the 6 teenagers explaining them about Kyoto He designed our itinerary well but then. Was flexible to prioritize the key areas when we were running late as our group took a lot of pictures and were behind the schedule His communication with the van driver really helped us as we don’t have to worry about explaining anything. Max is a total professional considering his education and experience as a geologists and is proud of his heritage and did a wonderful Job with our group Mac we will get you again when we will be back and I will recommend you to ALL MY FRIENDS RAJEEV


Thank you for your review, Rajeev. It was my great pleasure to guide you Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. I hope to see you again. Mac (Masatsugu) Okazaki

“ A friendly and expert guide for a great day in Nara ”

He has been super helpful and effective accommodating our request and planning perfectly all logistics. We fitted best of Nara, Fujimi Inari and Daigo ji temple in one day and made it perfectly on time for our train to tokyo. He is very friendly, willing to share details and answer thousands of questions... with a great passion for Japan and making his client enjoy the visit.

“ Not good guide at all ”

We were 2 days with him in Tokyo, and Nikko. 1. He dont knows to explain about history, just few sentences for each places. 2. He dont know places, where to go, and what to see 3. when we kame to some place, first, he was searching for this place. like I could by myself, and then he told us where to go. I could this do alone, by myself.


Hi Merhunisa Although I try to good for people from the Balkan, it is regretful to hear from you such opinion. If you felt that way, then, I must apologize to you about this and I must be careful this will not happen again. There were two things that you did not like 1. You though my guiding narration is not enough You thought my guiding narration is very less compared with narration of Japanese guide for Japanese tourist. They are mostly talking about things that related to the place and only Japanese people can understand. Something like, the famous TV dram was film in here and talking about some person not historically important, and so on. Not much related to history. I tried to speak important things, and for avoiding confusion and misunderstanding, I speak simple way so... read more
