Wonderful man who went out of his way to ensure that the start of our Japanese visit was "fantasmajorical". He went to a great deal of trouble to plan our visit which really did meet our needs over the 7 hours that we spent together. We were able to combine some basic "first time in a country" requirements with a most knowledgeable and interesting cultural perspective from a local person who spoke both Japanese and English. We would recommend Maseo as a guide for any visitor who wants an inside, friendly insight into the Japanese lifestyle and who is looking for a combination of the "tourist take" on travel and some "off the beat" local experiences. Thankyou, Maseo from Geoff & Robyn Higgins
The experience was very good, Masao was very helpful provided as much information as he could for a first time visitor to JAPAN. Even though he was a senior person he still showing interest for learning; languages specially.
Thank you very much for sending nice comment to me. When you have a time to come to Japan, please inform to me. I would like to see you again.
