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.

We needed some1 to drive us back to Tokyo fr Mt. Fuji and was hoping to do some sightseeing at either Mt. Fuji or Hakone. Masato San was such a helpful and versatile tour guide and also a very good driver at the same time. Not only he helped us plan our itinerary but also being very informative. I told him that we would love to check out Fujikawaguchiko autumn leaves festival which date wasnt announced yet. He kept a lookout of the official announcement and would update us constantly about the traffic nearer to out tour date too. He was so patient with us and very accommodating and also take very good pictures for us. Would definitely hire him again when we bring our family next time. He knows the best and will give u the best too!!!
Yanti San, thank you for everything！ I was very happy to be with you during the tour. I surely hope I could meet you in Japan in the future again! Thank you very much.
Mr. Masato is very accommodating. He made the trip very enjoyable because he is a safe driver who knows all the destinations we want to see very well, and helped take very good pictures.
Hello, DEANNA San, I also enjoyed the tour with you all! I am happy that you are pleased with the photos taken during the tour. Please enjoy the nice and wonderful trip continuously in Japan! Thank you again! Masato
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
Great tour. Very nice and helpful guide. Highly recommend him for your day trip to mt. Fuji
Dear Brian San, Thank you for applying for my tour. I enjoyed the wonderful miraculous Mt. Fuji with you. Also, if you have another chance, please feel free to contact me! Masato
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.
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
