About

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!

“ Exceptional service ”

We cannot thank Masako enough. She has been exceptional from our first contact. From organising a customised tour, ordering a much wanted Japanese book through assisting us about the damage from Typhoon Jebi. Nothing has been too much trouble. Her knowledge of Japanese history is comprehensive. We have booked Masako for a second day and are looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us.

MASAKO:

Hello Debbie, Thank you very much for the lovely words. Thanks to your cooperation and patience, the tour was easy to operate. It helped me a lot. I also enjoyed nice chatting with you. I am impressed both of you are so talented. Looking forward to showing you around Kamakura today. Masako

“ Wonderful time with Masako in Tokyo ”

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!

MASAKO:

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!
