About

I was a geologist for about forty years until quite recently. As a geologist, I had many occasions working in foreign countries. Including long and short stays, I visited more than 20 countries and from all of them I had wonderful unforgettable memories and I received warm hospitalities. After retiring from company, it is now my turn to show beautiful and wonderful Japan to visitors from outside of Japan with worm hospitality.
I do not want to be a normal tour guide but to be a person who helps tourists to challenge and to be involved in many excitements and events of Japan. I think that tour is an occasion for tourists not only to see famous tour spot but to have experiences of being involved and participate in excitement and events of visiting country and this will give big impact to tourists to the extent changing their way of thinking and lives. I love to assist tourists to have such experiences of unforgettable memories during tour.

“ Mr. Patient and keeping us happy ”

WOW!!!! Masatsugu is so amazingly patient and made sure we were always happy with our experience. He helped us arrange bullet train tickets to Mt. Fuji and gave us a great tour of Kyoto. I highly recommend him to anyone who is traveling in Japan.

“ Soft spoken/knowledgeable/Good comm skills/ ”

Masatsugu demonstrated a lot of passion in showing us around Very flexible to our needs , patient and very good with all the 6 teenagers explaining them about Kyoto He designed our itinerary well but then. Was flexible to prioritize the key areas when we were running late as our group took a lot of pictures and were behind the schedule His communication with the van driver really helped us as we don’t have to worry about explaining anything. Max is a total professional considering his education and experience as a geologists and is proud of his heritage and did a wonderful Job with our group Mac we will get you again when we will be back and I will recommend you to ALL MY FRIENDS RAJEEV

“ A friendly and expert guide for a great day in Nara ”

He has been super helpful and effective accommodating our request and planning perfectly all logistics. We fitted best of Nara, Fujimi Inari and Daigo ji temple in one day and made it perfectly on time for our train to tokyo. He is very friendly, willing to share details and answer thousands of questions... with a great passion for Japan and making his client enjoy the visit.
