Hello, My name is Masaharu.
I am the National Licenced Tour Guide and Interpreter in English.
I used to stay in London, UK for 14 years on business.
This valuable experience gave me great passion for talking to many people with entirely different culture and historical background.
Therefore, it is my great pleasure to show foreign tourists from all over the world exciting tour spots by featuring traditional as well as modern faces of Japan.
Let's share together history, culture, natural beauty and seasonal delicacy of Japanese food.
See you in Japan soon!

“ We are enjoyed this day in Tokyo ”

We are spent a very interesting and wonderful day in our excursion with Masaharu in Tokyo. He is very professional, punctual, well organised and friendly person. Today we known many things about old and modern Tokyo, had perfect time in Imperials Gardens and enjoyed traditional japans dishes. We saw many of Tokyo's famous sights. And of course we will recommend him to our friends who will visit Japan!

“ Mr Masaharu is the best of the best!!! ”

Mr. Masaharu is very professional, knowledgeable, punctual, patient, very smart, very organized and very very Japanese cultured :) He is always very punctual coming to our hotel, and he planned our trip so well that the travel from one attraction to another was so smooth and time consuming. Mr. Masaharu is very knowledgeable with all the places he took us to, and hepatiently explained the culture and history of these places in great detail. He brought us to great restaurant with authentic Japanese foods, especially the best sushi place in the world and with great prices :) We were so glad that Mr. Masaharu was able to be our interpreter in all the places with his excellent bilingual (English and Japanese) ability. I would definitely recommend his to all my friends and families. My next trip to Japan, I will hire Mr. Masaharu in a heartbeat!!!!!! Thank you Mr. Masaharu for your great friendly service and for treating us like your family!

“ Tokyo Highlights in a Day ”

I spent a wonderful day with Masaharu in Tokyo seeing the most popular sites. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of Tokyo and shared many stories about the different temples, shrines, monuments and neighborhoods we visited. He also took me to a fabulous place for lunch which was a feat in itself as I am vegan and gluten free. So finding this gem of a restaurant in Tokyo was quite a surprise. Also, walking the city gave me a much better perspective as we traveled with the "locals" on the trains and subways. I would highly recommend Masaharu if you come to Tokyo. If you are English speaking, you will understand him perfectly!

“ Tokyo Highlights ”

After just arriving in Tokyo, completely jet lagged and with only a short time to sightsee, Masaharu was a breath of fresh air! Masaharu thoughtfully created a fully customized itinerary that allowed us to see many of Tokyo's most famous sights. He seemlessly guided us though the train system, a feat we never would have been able to accomplish on our own, and made for a tremendously enjoyable day!
