Hello. I am Masako and a national certified tour guide.
I was born and raised in Tokyo and have lived in Yokohama for about 30 years. So, I am familiar with both Tokyo and Yokohama. Tokyo is an eclectic city, traditional and modern, having many must-see sightseeing spots. I promise you will have an exciting day and enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine! While Yokohama is a new city, but proud of its great influence on Japan's modernization. It takes only a half hour by train from Tokyo but the atmosphere is completely different. You will find a special fascination. Looking forward to seeing you and showing you around my beautiful cities!

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!
Masako was wonderful - very knowledgeable, flexible for our schedule! English was great. Would definitely recommend her!
Elissa and Peter, Thank you very much for the kind words. I thank your cooperation during the tour as well. I am glad to hear you enjoyed Nikko. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan! Hope this travel will be a memorable experience!
Thoroughly enjoyed my time with Masako. Great guide in every sense. Excellent knowledge, tailored activities to my interests, great conversations, super friendly.... I could not ask for more!
Hello Wanda, Thank you very much for the kind words. I appreciate it. I am glad to hear you enjoyed Nikko and Hakone. It was wonderful to be with you. I enjoyed showing you around the scenic areas and chatting with you. Thank you again! Masako
Masako is a great guide: she speaks good English, she answers all your questions, she shows deep knowledge of history and culture of Japan, and she has great organizing skills.
Hello Lisa, Thank you for the kind words. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in Japan. Your group were very punctual, which helped me a lot to organize the tour. I appreciate your keeping the patience, though the traffic was heavy in the morning on both days. Again I thank you very much. Masako
Masako was our guide for 2 full and 2 half days while we had an amazing holiday in Tokyo and the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our tours, Masako was helpful with her knowledge but recognised when we needed to make itinerary changes due to the children's interest levels. For our family this made the tours totally effective and hugely enjoyable. Contact Masako, for me she helped tailor my requirements from high level ideas to deliver a detailed tour plan ticking all our boxes. - Thank you we loved our time and will definitely return to Japan.
Dear Kate, Thank you very much for the kind words. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the tours. I had a great time with you. I was impressed you are very energetic, especially your daughters! It helped me a lot to show you around Tokyo, Kamakura and Hakone. We walked for a long time, yet all of you were still active. I would like to see you again when you return to Tokyo. Masako
