“ Tokyo night highlights ”

Masato took 15 of us to a restaurant for dinner which he arranged. It was great with a wonderful view of the city lights. Food and wine excellent. Then he took us walking around Shinjuku to see all the little bars and backstreets.. he also got us on the trains and showed us how they work. All in all a great evening and we thank you Masato

Masato:

Hi Sally, Thank you so much for your fine appreciation. I am very glad to read your comments. Thank you again. Masato

“ Great day out ”

We had a very informative and enjoyable day with Masato. He covered all of our requests and added a few more for good measure. The day was at our pace and great fun. We will definately be calling him next time we visit Tokyo. Sorry for the short review but have limited WiFi on the ship.

Masato:

Hi Denise, Thank you so much for your good comments on my service. I am expecting your next visit to Tokyo again. Masato

“ Excellent Guide in Nikko! ”

Masato was a wonderful guide for us in Nikko. He is kind, very intelligent, and has a great sense of humor. He provided a good summary of the history and culture of Nikko as we toured, including of the Tokugawa and subsequent Shoganates and the shrines and temples we visited. We highly recommend Masato!

Masato:

Hi, Ann and Larry Sandor, I was very glad to read that you enjoyed so much the tour in Nikko. Masato.

“ delightful experience ”

Masato accompanied our party of 3 adults (parents and adult child) around Tokyo for 3 days. We saw everything we requested and he made some worthwhile suggestions. He arranged for lunches that met our complex and demanding dietary requirements. We had read up through guidebooks on many of the sights we visited but he still added much. Masato seamlessly took us around on the subway system and occasionally, won some a bus. We used a cab a couple of times when the time savings were worth the extra cost. He showed good judgement about making this issue. No issues with understanding Masato's Engllish. He is a delightful human being and actually is even better in person than in his TripleLights video. HIghly recommended.
