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.
However, when you would like me to guide outside areas of Tokyo such as Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Kanazawa and the other cities I marked in the list below, you are cordially requested to pay my round transportation to the area, accommodation in the area, in addition to the usual guide fee, area transportation and meals.
In February 2017, I was invited to a tour in Europe by the travel agency there because my customers
highly evaluated my guide performance 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 fifteen and more, ten times and more.

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.
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 was simply the best. We spent five days together and each day was well planned and enjoyable. Having him with us made our time in Japan incredible. The sightseeing was perfect and also flexible. The local restaurants he suggested made us feel like locals. We highly recommend him! Thank you so much Masato!!!
