“ Excellent Tokyo Trip!!!! ”

My family and I had an amazing time with Masa this January 4th. He was very punctual and greeted us at our hotel in Shibuya. He also took the time to get to know our family before the tour. The itinerary he created was specifically catered for our family. A couple places we were interested in was the Tsujiki Market, Sumo town in Ryogoku, Anime and game shops in Akihabara. Masa was able to take us to all those places plus a couple bonus spots like Ginza shopping strip, landscape Japanese Gardens, Chanko Nabe lunch experience, etc. Also, with his proficient English speaking skills, he was able explain the a little bit about the history and culture of the country, its transportation and sites , and he was able to answer all the questions we had. Having Masa as our tour guide was such a great decision! We wouldn't be able to get around town and see these amazing sites without him.

“ Very good day with Masaharu! ”

We went around with Masa last Dec 28, and everything went as planned (Asakusa, Imperial palace, Tsukiji Market for lunch, Meiji Shrine, to end in Harajuku). there were 11 of us in the family. Masa was in the hotel promptly at the agreed time and was very patient with us the whole day, despite the many asks and questions and delays. Masa was able to share history of Japan to kids and made it interesting, along with tidbits about Shinto vs Buddhism. He was also very knowledgeable in all the questions we raised about the shogunate, samurais, etc. It was a very interesting day. We also asked Masa to make a reservation for our lunch and it turned out really well. Masa's english was also impeccable, as he has lived in the UK for 11 years. Will definitely go around with Masa again on our next visit, as he does tours for Tokyo environs as well. Highly recommend Masa!
