About

Hi, everybody,

My name is Masato.
It's my great pleasure to introduce you Japanese history, culture, delicious food, beautiful nature, historical buildings, and shopping areas for you. I am willing to do the tour guide job.

I guess the reasons why tourists gave me high marks after their tour in Japan with me are my knowledge of various fields based on the following backgrounds.
- I had worked for a publishing company as a reporter,
- I used to work an aide to the CEO of an international advertising agency, Japan office,
- I had worked as a manager of public relations and advertisement of a multinational automobile tire manufacturer in Japan.
- I have a long experience worked in Tokyo for about forty years in total.

I used to be ranked number one on the TripleLights tour guide popularity in 2018, and always getting a five-star review from the tourists.

In February 2017, I was invited to a tour in Europe by the travel agency there because of my excellent tour guiding service. The tourists gave me a high mark.

I'm looking forward to meeting you very soon in Japan.

P.S.
I have experiences to handle a group of thirty persons and more, ten times and more.
School tour, a college tour, and another group tour could be accepted.
I will hire colleague guides if necessary.

Thank you.

Masato

“ Knowledgeable, varied, tailored to our wishes ”

From the practical to the interesting. Masato guided us on how to use the transit system and buy tickets. We visited the sorts of places we wanted to and took us down interesting side streets, including a shop selling new and second hand kimino at low cost.

Masato:

Hi Dan, thank you for your review. I hope that you enjoyed so much Tokyo exploring. Masato.

Masato took 15 of us to a restaurant for dinner which he arranged. It was great with a wonderful view of the city lights. Food and wine excellent. Then he took us walking around Shinjuku to see all the little bars and backstreets.. he also got us on the trains and showed us how they work. All in all a great evening and we thank you Masato

“ Great day out ”

We had a very informative and enjoyable day with Masato. He covered all of our requests and added a few more for good measure. The day was at our pace and great fun. We will definately be calling him next time we visit Tokyo. Sorry for the short review but have limited WiFi on the ship.

Masato:

Hi Denise, Thank you so much for your good comments on my service. I am expecting your next visit to Tokyo again. Masato
