“ Knowledgeable, varied, tailored to our wishes ”

From the practical to the interesting. Masato guided us on how to use the transit system and buy tickets. We visited the sorts of places we wanted to and took us down interesting side streets, including a shop selling new and second hand kimino at low cost.

Masato:

Hi Dan, thank you for your review. I hope that you enjoyed so much Tokyo exploring. 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.
