Important

Tsukiji market is closed on Sundays and most of Wednesdays. We need to check it each time.

1.Tsukiji Inner Market and most shops in Tsukiji Outer Market are closed on Sundays and most of Wednesdays.
2.Tokyo Skytree can be congested anytime as it is very popular tour spot. So, I suggest that we make advance booking of viewing time to avoid waiting in the long
queue on the day of visit. Advance booking is allowed two months prior to the visit in the Japanese convenience store "Seven eleven".
I will be happy to arrange booking upon the request of tourists.

“ Full of insights ”

Masaharu-san was extremely knowledgable and alert to our needs. He took us to the best restaurants and shared so many insights and unique observations about the country that by the end of the tour we had learned a lot. He also knew the best places to eat! It was indeed a great pleasure to experience Tokyo with him.

“ Everything was perfect and according to the plan that I have imagine for my family to enjoy our visit and tour in Japan. ”

Masaharu has made our trip am remarkable and a memorable one thay will last in our lifetime! The rich and great insights he shared about Japan was encapsulated in the 2 days trip we shared with him. His passion for sharing the rich culture of Japan has captivated our hearts to even embraced a deep respect of Japanese cultures and traditions. Thus if in the near future that we will be having an opportunity again to come visit and be back in Japan, we'll definitely have Masaharu with us who is already of part of our family. Kudos Masa Job well done! Cheers!

“ Excellent Guided Tour of Tokyo with Experienced Well Spoken Guide! ”

Recently I had the great opportunity to take a guided tour of Tokyo with Masaharu. I was delighted with my experience and would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of getting some wonderful insights into the exciting city of Tokyo. He was organized, flexible and accommodating of my requests and interests. Together we enjoyed Scenic places, the Tokyo Edo Museum, Shrines, The Scramble Crossing, Shopping, A delicious lunch, and more all in one day! I did the 8 hour tour. Masaharu's English is excellent and there were no communication problems at all. He's a very nice, interesting person and is easy to spend time with. Book him as soon as possible! You will be happy you did!

“ Trains & trains ”

My wife & I were met at the Yokohama cruise terminal by Masaharu and the day began. The journey, via train to Tokyo, was interesting but quite long at about 90 minutes with changes. We were very glad to have Masaharu to navigate the metro system, but we found the trip interesting and it gave us time to talk at length with our guide about life in Japan. The visit to the Imperial Palace area was interesting after which it was it was more trains to cross the city to the oldest area of Tokyo. More and more interesting information from our guide as we checked out the area and visited a famous restaurant for a typical Japanese lunch (it was inexpensive). Masaharu's command of English is very good because he used to live and worked for years in London for a major shipping company. With hindsight, for our next visit via a cruise ship, I would ask Masaharu to show us around Yokohama, which would require far less train trips, but we had to see Tokyo which, for us was a very small taste, that has wet our appetite for further visits. . I recommend Masaharu as a guide who loves his job and showing off his home town. If you are not sure what to see allow Masaharu to help you, depending on your interests and fitness.

“ 4 great days touring Tokyo and Kanakura ”

Had a very nice time with Mass, friendly, very polite, good historian. Met us and delivered us back to our hotel each day, changed up the itenerary when we wanted something different, like museums instead of more temples. Definitely take a day trip to Kamakura.
