“ Masato helped make Sumo understandable! ”

We had arranged tickets to a Sumo tournament but need someone to help us understand what we were seeing. Masato did an outstanding job of getting us to the site and dealing with the logistics. His explanations were excellent, his company was very pleasant and he helped make it a memorable day. Thank you!

Masato:

Hi Henry, Thank you so much for your kind words. I also like to see a Sumo, then I could explain it very well. Masato.

“ Fantastic day in Tokyo! ”

We had a wonderful day with Masato. We saw a few sites and had a some amazing meals. Masato took us to a tasty sushi restaurant as well as an izakaya style restaurant where we could try Japanese spirits. Another great stop was a shop where we could watch wagashi being made and taste the delicacy with the traditional cup of green tea. Thanks Masato!

Masato:

“ Excellent, very friendly guide ”

We had the most wonderful day in Kamakura with Masato. He was extremely prompt and efficient in his response upon initial contact. I let him know what my husband and I wanted to see, and within hours, I had a spreadsheet detailing every step of our trip, including how we would be traveling, duration for each part (whether it be walking, taxi, along with any expenses we may incur. It was an extremely well-thought out itinerary and route. He even went to the pier at Yokohama in advance to check a meeting point. We learned a lot about Japanese history, the importance of temples, shrines the beauty and meaning of Japanese gardens. We liked the Japanese restaurant we had lunch very much, because it was really authentic. Masato is such a patient, heart warming, caring and friendly guide. We ... read more

“ 2 Days in Tokyo with Masato ”

We had Masato as our guide in Tokyo for two days. He gave us choices and discussed what we would like to see and then went about organising our trip. He took in to account that my husband could not walk to far or to fast and made sure he was looked after. He showed us many interesting sites and his knowledge was impeccable. Thoroughly enjoyed his company and would highly recommend him Russ and Sue Barty

Masato:

Hi Sue and Russ, I am very pleased to read that you two were satisfied with my guide. Thank you for your warm words. I hope you will enjoy your life with another fine tour in the world as well. Masato
