My name is Masato, which literally means an honest person in Japanese.
I am trying to introduce the inbound tourists as many traditional matters(custom, foods, historical buildings and so on ) and beautiful nature as possible.
I was born and live in a city adjacent to Tokyo, and worked for publishing company as a reporter, and for international advertising agency and multinational automobile tire manufacturer in Tokyo city ares for about forty years long in total.
With these experience and my age, I have a confidence to explain enough about Tokyo and many other major sightseeing areas such as Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Kanazawa and other places popular among foreign tourists. It is not easy to do so for young guides.

I love to be able to bring you everywhere in Japan you want.

I have experiences to handle a group of fifteen and more, ten times and more.
