What to Expect

Yokohama Minatomirai faces the ocean and overlooks magnificent scenery. It has many different museums, amusements, shopping malls, hotels and so on. First, we visit Hara Model Railway Museum, which features about 1,000 model trains including rare ones collected by Hara Nobutaro from worldwide. In addition, you would be amazed at the large-scale and extraordinarily elaborate diorama. Next, enjoy creating own original cupnoodles with favorite soup, ingredients and a cup design at Cupnoodles Museum. If you want, you can make chicken ramen from scratch (it takes 90 min. and needs a booking). Finally, we drop by Red Brick Warehouse, a symbol of Yokohama. The two structures were built about 100 years ago and now have shops of stylish selections. Yokohama is just 30 min. far from Tokyo by train and people of all ages can enjoy. Why don't you join me? (This is a walking tour, however we can take a bus if we get tired.)

“ very intersting day ”

We had a 5 hour tour with Masako which we customized ourselves but Masako did all the organizing and travel arrangements. We went to a Japanese Tea Ceremony which was amazing in a small village called Yanaka. We were given lots of history/information from Masako during the tour. Masako was a lovely and funny lady and we enjoyed her company very much.


Hello Perry, Thank you very much for the kind comment. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. You must have been very disappointed because the rugby game you were supposed to watch was called off due to the typhoon. However, I am most grateful to you that you listened to my explanation eagerly. I was happy to accompany you. Give my regards to Sarah and your cultivated sons. Best regards, Masako

“ Day in Tokyo ”

Masako was very kind to accommodate our last minute request for a tour of Tokyo. It was a cold and rainy day but nevertheless we enjoyed all the places that we visited. Tokyo is a beautiful city and Masako did a great job in representing it. We highly recommend her. Thank you, Masako! We hope to come back and visit again.


Hi Amor, Thank you very much for the kind comment. I do appreciate it. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. So did I very much. You, your husband and sister are warmhearted and cooperative. I was impressed with deep consideration for me. I would like to meet you again when you return to Japan. May you be very happy! Masako

“ Exceptional service ”

We cannot thank Masako enough. She has been exceptional from our first contact. From organising a customised tour, ordering a much wanted Japanese book through assisting us about the damage from Typhoon Jebi. Nothing has been too much trouble. Her knowledge of Japanese history is comprehensive. We have booked Masako for a second day and are looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us.


Hello Debbie, Thank you very much for the lovely words. Thanks to your cooperation and patience, the tour was easy to operate. It helped me a lot. I also enjoyed nice chatting with you. I am impressed both of you are so talented. Looking forward to showing you around Kamakura today. Masako

“ Wonderful time with Masako in Tokyo ”

We had a wonderful time in Tokyo with Masako. She helped us plan our 3 days sharing advice. She met us each day on time and was very personable, sharing a lot about Japanese culture and life in Tokyo - even some about her own personal family life which gave us good perspective. Masako was very accommodating in our schedule and her pleasant personality made it a joy to spend time with her as she helped us see and tour the various parts of the city. We happily and highly recommend her!


Hello Mordy, Thank you very much for the kind words. I appreciate it. Thanks to your cooperation, we kept to the tour plan, although the weather was not so good for the last three days. I am glad to hear you enjoyed Tokyo and Kamakura. Nice chatting with you. It was wonderful to be with you and listen to your culture. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and Hong Kong!
