“ 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

“ Excellent Guide in Nikko! ”

Masato was a wonderful guide for us in Nikko. He is kind, very intelligent, and has a great sense of humor. He provided a good summary of the history and culture of Nikko as we toured, including of the Tokugawa and subsequent Shoganates and the shrines and temples we visited. We highly recommend Masato!

Masato:

Hi, Ann and Larry Sandor, I was very glad to read that you enjoyed so much the tour in Nikko. Masato.

“ delightful experience ”

Masato accompanied our party of 3 adults (parents and adult child) around Tokyo for 3 days. We saw everything we requested and he made some worthwhile suggestions. He arranged for lunches that met our complex and demanding dietary requirements. We had read up through guidebooks on many of the sights we visited but he still added much. Masato seamlessly took us around on the subway system and occasionally, won some a bus. We used a cab a couple of times when the time savings were worth the extra cost. He showed good judgement about making this issue. No issues with understanding Masato's Engllish. He is a delightful human being and actually is even better in person than in his TripleLights video. HIghly recommended.

“ A wonderful afternoon ”

Thank you Masato for a wonderful afternoon and evening in Tokyo. We loved the market, temple, and Tokyo Tower. Masato has excellent English and is very knowledgeable about the sites we visited and Tokyo itself. He is interesting, funny, and flexible with plans. Navigating the trains and Subways was easy with him. He also helped us plan our route back to the cruise ship on a train once we left him. Highly recommend Masato for your tour!!

Masato:

Hi Melissa, I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the Tokyo tour with me. I expect you to come to Japan again. Thank you. Masato

“ Most fun tour guide ever! ”

Masato has an extreme wealth of knowledge in Tokyo . He went above and beyond for our group in the 2 days we were with him. We went for cherry blossom and he knew exactly where to take us. He knew exactly what to do and where to take us the whole time. He is such fun, very funny man too and a TV star - he said if we miss him we can watch him on TV!!! It was a delight being on tour with him. He is so helpful, he suggested all these other places and where to eat after his tour. He also had a lot of patience as one of the group members had to get an emergency wheelchair as her foot was so sore prior to our Japan trip. He accommodated to that - which is not easy. Thank you so much Masato! I will recommend you highly to anyone and everyone wanting to do a tour in Tokyo!

Masato:

Hi Tereza, Thank you for your kind words. Those encourage me so much in the future guiding. Thank you Tereza, again. Masato

“ Half day visit of fishmarket, imperial gardens, tempel,... ”

We spent a very interesting half day with Masato. He is an extremely knowledgeable guide telling about Japanese daily life, customs and habits. Although time was short we had diverse experiences, seeing, tasting and trying out exotic (for us) food. Masato is friendly and helpful and really enjoys to guide you through his city.

Masato:

Hi Elisabeth, I appreciate so much for your good words to me. Unfortunately, it was a rainy day a half day long. I hope it would be fine next time for you. Masato

“ Masato helped make Sumo understandable! ”

We had arranged tickets to a Sumo tournament but need someone to help us understand what we were seeing. Masato did an outstanding job of getting us to the site and dealing with the logistics. His explanations were excellent, his company was very pleasant and he helped make it a memorable day. Thank you!

Masato:

Hi Henry, Thank you so much for your kind words. I also like to see a Sumo, then I could explain it very well. Masato.

“ Fantastic day in Tokyo! ”

We had a wonderful day with Masato. We saw a few sites and had a some amazing meals. Masato took us to a tasty sushi restaurant as well as an izakaya style restaurant where we could try Japanese spirits. Another great stop was a shop where we could watch wagashi being made and taste the delicacy with the traditional cup of green tea. Thanks Masato!

Masato:

Mr. Warren and all his family and a friend. I am very pleased to read your comments. I hope that we can remeet very soon . Itchy, knee, sun, she and go, ha, ha, ha. Masato

“ Excellent, very friendly guide ”

We had the most wonderful day in Kamakura with Masato. He was extremely prompt and efficient in his response upon initial contact. I let him know what my husband and I wanted to see, and within hours, I had a spreadsheet detailing every step of our trip, including how we would be traveling, duration for each part (whether it be walking, taxi, along with any expenses we may incur. It was an extremely well-thought out itinerary and route. He even went to the pier at Yokohama in advance to check a meeting point. We learned a lot about Japanese history, the importance of temples, shrines the beauty and meaning of Japanese gardens. We liked the Japanese restaurant we had lunch very much, because it was really authentic. Masato is such a patient, heart warming, caring and friendly guide. We ... read more

Hi Madelena, Thank you so much for your comments. I also spent a very enjoyable time with you. Please say hello to your husband. I hope to see you again i the future. Masato

“ 2 Days in Tokyo with Masato ”

We had Masato as our guide in Tokyo for two days. He gave us choices and discussed what we would like to see and then went about organising our trip. He took in to account that my husband could not walk to far or to fast and made sure he was looked after. He showed us many interesting sites and his knowledge was impeccable. Thoroughly enjoyed his company and would highly recommend him Russ and Sue Barty

Masato:

Hi Sue and Russ, I am very pleased to read that you two were satisfied with my guide. Thank you for your warm words. I hope you will enjoy your life with another fine tour in the world as well. Masato

“ Wonderful orientation to tokyo ”

Masato was an amazing guide for our first day in Japan and Tokyo! We were traveling with our infant and needed an overview of the city and subway and introduction to Japanese food - Masato was perfect. We saw the major sites, learned the subway / rail, tried lots of food, and really got comfortable with the City. His English is excellent and his narrative of the city was fantastic! Don’t hesitate to book with Masato!

Masato:

Hi Stephen, Thank you so much for your good comment on my guiding. I hope that you will come to Japan again. Thank you again. Masato

“ Great Day in Tokyo ”

We had an excellent day with Mr. Masato. To start, he met us in the morning at our accommodations. Quickly, he began showing us around the city, offering historical facts and friendly tips. He was also extremely helpful in aiding us with purchasing transit passes and finding our way around the subway. He kept a quick pace all day, meeting each one of our requests to see various parts of the city. His intimate knowledge was most beneficial in learning about the rich history and layout of Tokyo. After a full day, we left feeling as though we were old friends. Domo Arigatogozaimasu! - Allison, Drew, Lori and Troy (United States)

Masato:

Hi Allison, Drew, Lori and Troy , Thank you so much for your high evaluation on my guide service. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed so much your sightseeing in Tokyo with me. I hope you will still have a fun in the rest days in Tokyo. Thank you again. Masato

“ One day in Tokyo ”

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:

Hi Chris, Appreciate so much for your evaluation to me. Let's enjoy with your guirl friend next time.I am expecting the day. Chris, Thank you again.

“ Couldn't have asked for more ”

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.

Masato:

David and joan, Apprecate so much for your kind comments on my guidance in Tokyo. Please enjoy in another cities in Japan. I hope we will meet again in Tokyo. Masato

“ A day full of adventure and knowledge ”

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:

Hi David, I appreciate so much for your comments on my guidance and very glad to hear that you enjoyed the Tokyo tour. I am expecting you to come Japan again. Masato

“ Large group Australian School children/adults ”

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.

Masato:

I am very glad to hear Simone's comment. The guide was performed with her great help from Australia. I hope I can help the Australian children' s tour again.

“ Landmarks in Tokyo ”

I must say, Mr. Masaro was so knowledgeable and friendly it felt like he was a member of our family showing us his city. We went to the Fish Market and were astounded at the number of vendors, even on a Sunday. After the market, we visted many other must see places in Tokyo, ending with the Pokemon Store for my daughter. Mr. Masato, many many thanks to you for a wonderful, memorable day in the city it is obvious you love. We now have a love for the city we didn't have before. Thank you.......and domo arigato.

Masato:

Hi John, Thank you so much for your good words for me. I am very happy to know you three all enjoyed the Tokyo walking. Please enjoy in Japan in the rest of your touring days. Masato
