About

Hi, I'm Masa. Thank you for checking my profile!

I was born and grown up in OSAKA.
I know OSAKA and KANSAI in old and good days, and also know recent exciting KANSAI as well.

The reason why I'm doing the guide is quite simple.

I just want to be the best memory of your travel in Japan.
After back to home, you will tell the stories of your trips with your family or your friends. And I just want you to say,
" Hey, the tour we went with Masa was just a great!"

This is my goal as your private guide.

Let's travel KANSAI together with me, OSAKA, KYOTO, KOBE, NARA and more.
I'm here waiting for you!!

Thanks.

“ Masa is the best Kyoto guide ever!! ”

We had the best guide in Kyoto! His name was Masa! Masa was so fun and made our trip so interesting and informative. He took us to beautiful places in Kyoto. Some of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. All the Temples and Shrines we saw were spectacular. Masa made the 2 days we spent with him enjoyable and even took us to a fun sushi restaurant we wanted to go to and helped us understand what to do. We are so thankful to Masa. He worked so hard to make sure our trip was memorable. We appreciate all of his hard work. We loved Kyoto so much and that was because Masa helped us see all the most incredible places. After two days with him, we truly felt like he was part of our family. He was meticulous at arranging transportation and organizing outings. He was always very prompt and e... read more

Masahiro:

Dear David-san, Thank you so much for your warm and heartful comment. I'm glad and very happy to know our tour in Kyoto is one of the best memories of your trip in Japan. I really enjoyed the days with you and your family, maybe more than you all. Your family were so kind and always tried to understand my poor explanation. I almost forgot of being with you as a guide, but even felt like my old friends visited me. Thank you again for choosing me as your partner in Kyoto. It was a great fun. Please continue your safe and pleasant trip. If you have a chance to come to Japan again, please contact me. Looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you and Btrgds, Masa

“ Visit to Osaka ”

Masahiro is a passionate and knowledgeable local tour guide. He is also flexible, reliable and detailed-oriented. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends.

Masahiro:

Dear Juan-san, Thank you for your warm review. I really enjoyed the time with you and your family. I might enjoyed more than you did. When you will talk about your trip in Japan, I'm glad if you think of Osaka even a little. Thank you again for your kindly trust in me. Please tell my regards to your family too. Thanks! Masahiro

“ 3 day tour of Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Kobe ”

I wouldn't even know where to begin describing how amazing our experience in Japan with Masa was! Even before the tour, Masa was helping me book specific restaurants and places we wanted to see and so flexible in helping me arrange the trip to suit the group (the older parents and the younger siblings). We arrive in Osaka first night and Masa comes past to say hi and goes out of his own way to show us around that night and find a place for dinner. The next few days were so well organised, I never felt a minute of frustration. It must be said we could be a bit annoying when we enjoyed particular areas more than others, but Masa always kept a smile on his face (and cracked quite a few good jokes too!) The whole experience is one none of us will forget. And I have a few wonderful photos... read more

Masahiro:

Dear Khaled-san, Thank you so much for your wonderful review for me. I enjoyed stay with you and your family here, and even feel missing you. I really had good experiences with your family filled with love. It was so great and made me comfortable. Please tell my sincere regards to your family. I miss you all. Thank you and Btrgds, Masa

“ Monk chant and Temple wedding ”

Masahiro was so good. We were able to communicate easily and his knowledge of Osaka was excellent.

Masahiro:

Dear Roaslie-san, Thank you for giving me many stars. Actually, The monk chant and the temple wedding were not because of my effort. I think you all brought us such a good luck. I'm glad to know you enjoyed the tour with me. Hope you will continue your trip pleasantly and safely. Please bring good memories from Japan. Thank you and Btrgds, Masa

“ Day tour of Osaka ”

Masa provided a wonderful day showing us the highlights of Osaka. His insight into Osaka and its people gave us a appreciation of the city from the perspective of a local. The lunch he organised for us was a wonderful and very delicious surprise.

Masahiro:

Dear Peter-san and Anita-san, Thank you for your review. I'm very happy to know you enjoyed Osaka! Hope you will remember Osaka and me when you see news about Japan. Thanks!
