Hi! I am Macky. I am glad to accompany you on your tour to Japan and show you the beauty and experiences Japan has to offer. I am an English tour guide and I have guided many foreign visitors around Kamakura, Nikko, Mt. Fuji and Hakone. I love sightseeing myself and I enjoy food and wine… I have been interested in intercultural exchanges and have visited many places locally and overseas alike. I have strong passion in Japanese history, culture, and geography. More than just simply showing you the stunning beauty of the places, I love to impart the cultural and historical value of each sightseeing spot. The place I can guide tourists best is Kamakura which has major shrines and temples with historical and religious details. It can be fun not only to explore Kamakura from historical point of view but also experience various activities such as hiking, rental kimono-clad walking, and learning carving technique as well as soba noodle preparation. I am flexible. My guide is unique and comprehensive. If you want to make the most out of your trip, I can show you around and make you experience Japan to the fullest. I can accommodate the tour according to your needs and preferences giving you a hassle-free, enjoyable and memorable tour. I can also take you to non tourism places such as various factory tours in Yokohama and Kawasaki City.

Kozo Y.

Hello! I'm Kozo. I'm currently living in Chiba, which is one of the biggest cities in Japan and located in the suburbs of Tokyo. So, I can guide you to the sightseeing spots in Tokyo and the suburbs, which include Asakusa, Nikko, Kamakura, Hakone, Mt. Fuji, and more. In those places, you can experience traditional Japanese culture and beautiful sceneries. I'm originally from Kobe, one of the major cities in the western part of Japan. So, if my schedule permits, I may also guide you to the attractive spots in Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe. I took a Master's degree in chemical engineering at the University of Tokyo and an MBA degree at the University of Massachusetts. I am a professional engineer in industrial engineering, an industrial safety consultant, a registered management consultant, and a licensed guide-interpreter. I have been working for a Japanese chemical company for many years. So, if you are interested not only in Japanese culture but also in technologies and businesses in Japan, I may be a good company. :) As a part of my job as an engineer, I often travel outside Japan. The countries that I visited last year are Singapore, China, the United States, Mexico, Germany, Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia. Among them, Singapore is my frequent destination. Also, in the past, I visited Spain, Italy, England, France, Hungary, India, Canada, Korea, Taiwan, etc. So, if you are from one of those countries, you may ask me how I felt when I visited your motherland. :) Okay, thank you for reading my self-introduction to the end. I hope I have a chance with you!

Shizuoka Tour Reviews

So much to see but we saw it all

What a beautiful day with your guide Mackey. He is pleasant, accommodating, knowledgeable and successfully navigated the weather to ensure we had a great day. Highly recommend especially for cruise passengers.

Mt Fuji and a great lunch

We booked a Celebrity cruise around Japan. To avoid the large, impersonal tours offered by the cruise line we decided to book a private tour in Shimizu (Mt. Fuji). Macy we excellent. He met us at the cruise terminal and showed us how to navigate Japanese public transportation and visit some memorable sites. At Mino no Matsubara we got to see Mt Fuji out of the clouds! We toured several other sites including Sumpu Castle. A highlight was lunch at a historic stop on the Tokaido Road. He sent us an itinerary before our trip and took our suggestions on sites we wanted to see. Unfortunately the ropeway at Nihondaira was closed for repair. We highly recommend him – he speaks very good English and is extremely knowledgeable about Japanese history.

Most Impressive Shizuoka Sightseeing Tour

We like to thank our guide Macky for this wonderful and most impressive tour across the Shizuoka area. The tour has been well prepared by our guide. We received a detailed itinerary in advance which covered all our interests. We can highly recommend Macky as a guide due to his sound knowledge of Japanese culture, social life and geography. We have appreciated very much the skillfulness and English language competence of our guide.

Isabel C.

Dear Isabel and Michael, Thank you very much for your review, which I am really appreciated and encourage me a lot for my future work as a guide. What makes me so pleased was that you were satisfied with the tour though the weather was not with our side and we couldn't see Mt. Fuji. I wish you keep happy and enjoyable journey. Best regards, Macky Hagiya
