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!

“ Very professional and goes beyond what is expected ”

Even when it wasn't part of her duties, Masako helped me in finding and booking restaurants for my group, which consisted of vegetarians and non-vegetarians. She was always keeping me updated on our itinerary and worked around our schedule. She was very professional. Will definitely book her again for another tour!

“ Tokyo Highlights ”

Masako was our tour guide for Tokyo. Since we arrived from Canada the night before, we booked her for two short days (5 hours each) rather than one long and exhausting day. Over those days we covered most of the popular sites and Masako showed us how to use the subway system so we were confident to visit other places on our own. She provided us with a great introduction to Japanese history and culture.

Masako's English is excellent. Her knowledge of Tokyo also excellent. She was wonderful in helping us understand and use the Tokyo Metro. Super tour.

“ Great tour guide ”

Masako was a great tour guide for my family. We have 2 daughters. She was very kind and accommodating to them. They had certain goals during the tour and she was flexible in making changes to our itenerary. My kids still talk about how much they miss her. She was pleasant, knowledgeable, spoke English well and was a greater tour guide. Thanks Masako for making our time in Tokyo great!. Thanks, Miller Family

“ Traveling with a kawai baby ”

Msako was incredibly helpful in developing a flexible schedule. We traveled with a 14 month old baby and had to slow down quite a lot and go off the original proposal. We spent 12 days in Japan and had a great time. The tour we took with Masako helped make the rest of the trip go smoothly as she helped us figure out transportation and gave us a lot more confidence to explore.
