“ Sensoji and Woodworking with Masato was great! ”

Masato served as our guide during our visit to Sensoji, Kappabashi shopping street, and was our interpreter during a Sashimono woodworking class where we made our own chopsticks! He was very knowledgable about the area and the history, and was the perfect translator for our workshop. He was able to easily translate all of the intricate woodworking verbiage, and we were very lucky to have him there with us! Thank you so much, Masato! We loved spending our day with you!


Hi Stacy, I am very glad to read your wonderful comments on my service in Asakusa. I wish you visit here again. Masato.

“ Fantastic Full Day Tour with a Gentleman ”

Masato-san facilitated us having the most fantastic experience in Tokyo. He brought us to all the sights, navigated transport systems, brought us for lunch and gave us so much local insights. He went above and beyond and I would highly recommend. We were a very large group and he managed it effortlessly


Conall san, I am very happy to hear that you were so satisfied with my guide service, and enjoyed the Rugby World Cup 2019 Japan although your IRE lost to NZL. I expect to spend a time with you again here in Japan in the near future.

“ Great tour ”

My husband and I had a wonderful day with Mataso. He tailored the tour for us and we learned so much about the Japanese culture. And there’s no way we could have maneuvered the rail system without him.


Hi Hollie, I am very pleased to hear your impression of the Tokyo tour. How was a typhoon Hagibis in Yokohama? Masato
