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!

“ Review of our day out with Masaharu. ”

We had a very enjoyable day with Masaharu visiting the area around Yokohama, and especially the Sankeien garden. He was very helpful especially as my wife is disabled. He was also very knowledgeable . We would certainly recomend him as a guide to any future visitors.

“ Great guide ”

Masaharu was a great guide for us for a day and a half in Tokyo. He arranged our itinerary but was extremely flexible with changes, which we made due to bad weather. He also took us to great restaurants for lunch. His English was excellent and my wife thought he was very sweet. I'd recommend him to anyone.

“ Tokyo Guide ”

We enjoyed our tour with Masaharu very much. He made sure that we saw many of the major sights in Tokyo in the day that we spent with him. He is very knowledgeable about the transit system and that enabled us to move around quickly. Thank you, Masaharu.

“ A pretty good tour ”

Masaharu was on time, efficient -we were able to cover the entire itenary.. His English is pretty good. However, we would like the guide to have more depth in history knowledge as well as in other common areas of interest. As a whole a tour was useful and we do not regret taking it.

“ Our day in Tokyo ”

We had only one day to get to know the highlights of Tokyo. Masaharu did an excellent job of showing us everything we wanted to see and more. He was very patient and kind, always willing to please. During the several months before our visit, we E-mailed him innumerable times planning our tour. He always responded quickly and was flexible with all our requests. Any time we're in Tokyo, we will contact Masaharu to be our guide. We recommend him highly. He is pleasant, knowledgeable and polite.
