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!

“ Excellent day in Tokyo! ”

Masaharu is an excellent guide and I would highly recommend him! I was in Tokyo for a few days for work and found myself with an entire day without meetings and decided to get a guide to show me the highlights. He is very knowledgeable, kind and adjusted the tour just for me. We stopped and had the most delicious lunch I would have not found on my own. He also offered to take my picture at every stop! Thank you Masa for such a great day!

Very Good

“ Excellent Tour Guide ”

Masaharu has been very helpful in the planning and execution of our customised tour. During our planning stage, we have made many changes and Masaharu accommodated to most of them. My guests are also highly satisfied with the service rendered and they commented that they had a wonderful time in Japan. I will definitely recommend Masaharu without any reserve.

“ Great Day with Masaharu ”

Our group spent the day with Masaharu and had a great time seeing the major sites around Tokyo. He was very friendly and easy going - and was able connect well with both the teenagers and adults in our group. Masaharu knows Tokyo and its sites quite well and was able to structure the day in a way that met the diverse needs of the entire group. I would not hesitate to use him again! Thank you Masaharu!
