“ Hakone day trip ”

Masa did an excellent job with route planning. He was prompt and introduced us to a beautiful local resort area. We learned some of the history of the area and enjoyed a pleasant afternoon with a respectful and quiet guide.

Masaharu:

Dear Brannon, Thank you for nice review. I enjoyed sharing wonderful time with your family around Hakone. Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Wishing you all the best! Masaharu

“ AMAZING day tour in Tokyo!! ”

Masaharu was absolutely WONDERFUL as a tour guide for our first full day in Tokyo! :) He came right to our hotel and spent 7 full hours on the road with us; he helped us navigate the intimidating but very efficient subway system, and got us to many places within our time together! In all of places, he was extremely knowledgeable. Very kind, very knowledgable, and very accommodating; his English was great and he dealt with our decreased energy towards the end of the tour due to jetlag graciously. Don't hesitate to book, and if we are back to Tokyo again we will certainly request him! Arigato Gozaiomas Masaharu-san! :) Irfan, Jeewani, Jehan and Ifza; Newfoundland, Canada

Masaharu:

Dear Irfan, Jeewani, Jehan and Ifza, Thank you for your nice review and encouraging message. It was my great pleasure sharing wonderful time with your family around Tokyo. I am grateful to find know you really enjoyed visiting characteristic spots and also experiencing complicated subway systems. Please further have fun in touring around Japan for the rest of your holidays and bring good memory back to Newfoundland. Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Thank you again for finding me and wishing you all the best! Masaharu

“ Lucky to see the cleareast view of Mt Fuji ”

Masaharu was ok but it could have been better if he would share insights and historical background of the places we visited. We were lucky to see the clearest view of Mt Fuji and it was awesome! Overall we enjoyed our 1 day Hakone tour. Thanks Masaharu!

Masaharu:

Hello Florice, Thank you for your inspiring comments. It was great pleasure sharing wonderful time for viewing Mt Fuji from Hakone. Frankly speaking, if we had more time, we could have visited the museum. But If we did it, shops must have been already closed by the time we went there. As you noticed, shops immediately closed during your shopping. So, it was physically difficult to achieve both historical insights walk on the steep ground and comfortable walk around the lake and shopping with two year old baby with you. And it actually took around 11 hours totally. Anyway, thank you for your valuable advice. Masaharu
