My name is Masato.
It's my great pleasure to introduce you a Japanese delicious food, beautiful nature, historical buildings and shopping areas both for adult and children.
I had 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 background and my age, I can produce a very happy tour to bring you to Tokyo and many other major sightseeing areas such as Kyoto, Shirakawago, Nikko, Kanazawa and other places popular among foreign tourists.
In February 2017, I was invited to a tour in Europe by the travel agency there because my customers
highly evaluated my guide service during their stay in Japan.
I love this job because it suits me.
I love to be able to bring you everywhere in Japan you want.
and I love to explain you on Japanese custom, cuisine and history.
I'm looking forward to meeting you very soon in Japan.
I have experiences to handle a group of thirty persons and more, ten times and more.
School tour, college tour and another group tour could be accepted.
I will hire colleague guides if necessary.

I had about 8 hours in Tokyo and selected Masato based on his bio since he had a long career in business in Japan and also travelling several times to the US. I was very happy with my choice. Masato was very articulate, easy to understand, and very knowledgeable of the areas we visited. He also was very flexible throughout the day on pace of visit and locations to visit. He was very timely on both my pick-up and dropping me back to the hotel. I strongly recommend him.
Masato was an exceptional guide and a delight to be around. He was incredibly well-informed about Tokyo and the sites we visited. He is very attentive to the needs of his tour group and my father and I heartily recommend Masato to others looking for a guide about Tokyo.
Masato was an absolutely wonderful guide and we were so pleased we had chosen him. He put together an itinerary based on our requirements and we saw everything we hoped for and more. Nothing was too much trouble, he was punctual and, at our request, taught us the Japanese way of doing things in restaurants etc. He was full of enthusiasm and energy with a great sense of humour and we saw far more with him than we would have seen on our own. I would thoroughly recommend Masato, he was only with us for two days but we were sad to see him go at the end. Thank you Masato for showing us your city.
I spent many days in Tokyo during my visit to Japan. The most wonderful day was with Mr. Masato! We met exactly on time in the lobby of my hotel, he spoke perfect english and was very polite. We began by seeing Shinjuku from 45 floors high in the Tokyo Metropolitan Building before we walked to the train station. Our day was spent traveling using public transportation and walking through many beautiful cities/areas in Tokyo. Every place was exciting and interesting (and delicious) thanks to Mr. Masatos' guidance and knowledge of all things Japanese. I hope to return again and meet for more adventure. Thank you very much!
Masato was a fantastic tour leader, very well organised, excellent local knowledge with a solid English ability. He went above and beyond to ensure the full day tour was age relevant, interesting and educational for the group. Previous to taking the tour, he did research on the areas visited and the group thoroughly enjoyed their full day exploring Tokyo. He comes highly recommended.
