“ A wealth of knowledge ”

Masahiko was the best guide we encountered in our 2 weeks of travelling in China, Korea and Japan. He was engaging, easy to understand and had many entertaining anecdotes and so much historical information. He kept our group engaged throughout the day on our tour through Kamakura and Yokohama.


Dear Tarcey, thank you very much for your review. I also enjoyed the tour with you. If you have some chance to come back to Japan, please let me know. I’ll be more than happy to take you some other wonderful places.

“ Excellent tour by Masahiko ”

Dear Masahiko, Thank you very much for your tour of Tokyo, 14 & 15 October 2017. The entire group had an excellent time and appreciated your level of knowledge and suggested tour route. Your timing was exactly as agreed and you were prepared to take the time to show us the 'little things', making the difference between an average tour by a large company, and an excellent tour run by a local. We would absolutely recommend and use your guide services again in the future. Kind regards, Callum Australia


Dear Callum, Thank you very much for your review. I also had a very good time. All the member were so nice and I was impressed by the respectful manners and sincere attitude toward the culture of the foreign country. In addition, everybody enjoyed the food very much. One thing that I miss is that I could not see you this time. If you have another chance to come to Japan, please let me know.
