I 'm a retired businessman who spent 12 years in the US with a fairly good command of English.
I visited over 40 countries so far which has made me quite familiar with most cultures in the
world. My experiences and the knowledge about Japanese history are valuable assets when it comes to acting as a guide. I like people and I'm really friendly and attentive. I hope my guests will enjoy
Japan and deepen their love for Japan.

We toured Tokyo for two consecutive half-days with Masataka. He was on time (even when we weren't!) and spent extra time to finish our planned itinerary. Masa speaks excellent English, and the tour was fun and informative. Thanks Masa!
Dear Andrew & Olga Thank you very much for your kind review. It was my great pleasure to walk around many places in Tokyo with fine people like you. You have taught me a lot that I should learn to be a better guide. Please stay young and beautiful. Best regards, Masataka
Masataka is such an excellent guide. He speaks good English. Our tour with him was very informative as well as exciting. We did really enjoy the tour and learned a lot from him. I and my wife want to extend our sincere thanks to Masataka!
Dear Ciso and Leilyn Magandang hapon. Kumusta po kayo? Salamat! I am quite honored to receive your kind message. I have also learned a lot from you and am determined to further improve my tours to come. Please stay young. Some day my wife and I want to visit your country. Love and Kisses Masataka
We had a wonderful experience with Masa, he met us in our hotel room promptly in the morning and covered everything we wanted to see during our day trip. He also provided an SD card with the video that he was taking during our journey, which was a nice touch. Overall we had a great experience and would recommend this to anyone wants to cover a lot of sights in a short amount of time.
Dear Sahithi & JT Many many thanks for your kind words. I am encouraged and inspired greatly. Best regards, Masa
