About

Hello! I am Masato.
I usually operate a personal care taxi business in Saitama prefecture.
(The taxi vehicle I use is Toyota's Hiace,a wheelchair accessible van.)
I would like everyone who comes to Japan from abroad to experience the real wonder of Japan.
Especially the place I want to guide you is Mt. Fuji, the best mountain in Japan, and Kusatsu ONSEN and Ikaho ONSEN, which are the best hot springs, and Nikko Toshogu Shrine of World Heritage sites and Nikko hot springs.
Since these sights are "real places", you will be pleased when you visit, especially if you take a bath in ONSEN, a hot spring, your body will revive.
I want you to experience the wonder of nature and culture of Japan, then I am doing a guide.
I always serve as a personal care taxi driver and provide services to customers, so I am very friendly and polite.
Currently I am a personal care taxi operator, so I have a taxi business license, a Tokyo City guide, a Guide helper and a registered drug seller qualification.
Also, since I worked in the real estate industry before, I am qualified as a Real Estate Transaction Agent and a financial planner.

Up to now, I have guided visitors to Mt. Fuji, Hakone, Nikko, Tokyo tour, hot springs of Gunma and Tochigi prefectures.
In addition, I myself have lived in Poland, Russia and the USA, and have traveled to European countries, China, Korea etc.

I will guide you by taxi as a guide to experience truly wonderful nature and culture of Japan.

“ Mt. Fuji One Day Tour, A Japanese World Heritage Site ”

Masato san gave us a very memorable and enjoyable tour of Mt. Fuji! It was pouring when he picked us up at the hotel in Tokyo (six of us). Masato san was very positive and advised us that the rain will stop in the afternoon. He is very funny and told us to pray harder and luckily our patience paid off. We were so happy when the clouds in Mt. Fuji disappear. He never get tired taking us pictures, you can tell he love what he does. He put an extra effort and take us to places that are not crowded so we we're able to visit the best sites around Mt. Fuji. He make sure we had an excellent time with our Kimonos and Samurai outfits too! We had a great lunch and he also told us good things to do and restaurant with reasonable price near our hotel. He went above and beyond his service. If you ev... read more

Dear Angelina San, Thank you very much for your wonderful review! I also had brilliant time with you all. It was miracle that we could see the top of Mt. Fuji. The miracle was happened by your nice prayers to the goddess of Mt. Fuji, I think ! Thank you again. Masato

“ Friendly, courteous & kind ”

We had a very good experience with Mr Masato. I am travelling for the first time with my 11 month old infant and my elderly mum who have walking difficulty. Mr Masato understands our needs and plans the itinerary very well accordingly. Throughout our trip, he was also very kind towards my mum and baby girl. The highlight of the trip was the experience at Ueno Park. Thank you Mr Masato. We will definitely engage your services for our future trips to Japan. He speaks English very well, if you’re wondering.

MASATO:

Mr. Christopher san, Thank you for choosing my tour this time! I also had a really good time with your family through the tour. Thank you for the great message, too. If you will come to Japan again, please contact me. Thank you very much! masato
