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.

My husband and I had a wonderful day with Mataso. He tailored the tour for us and we learned so much about the Japanese culture. And there’s no way we could have maneuvered the rail system without him.
Hi Hollie, I am very pleased to hear your impression of the Tokyo tour. How was a typhoon Hagibis in Yokohama? Masato
Masato is a party veteran! He gave us a great guided tour — did an Izakaya and Shinjuku visit! He knew how to entertain!
Hi Yana, Thank you so much for your kind words. I hope we meet again. Masato
Masato was a true gentlemen. I found him to be extremely knowledgable and easy going and also incredibly respectful. I wanted history and old Tokyo experiences: we went to the Japanese garden and to a temple. We also had lunch in a very old style restaurant with delicious food.
Hi Camille, Thank you so much for your kind word. I am very pleased that you satisfied with my service. I hope that I will have an opportunity to meet your daughters in Japan. Thank you again, Camille.
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.
Hi Dan, thank you for your review. I hope that you enjoyed so much Tokyo exploring. Masato.
Masato has explained a lot about the japanese culture and traditions. He also guided us to very interesting points: a local restaurant, a patisserie and a local library.
Hi Eduardo, Thank you for your nice review. Masato
