WHAT A WAY TO START OUR THREE WEEK JAPAN ADVENTURE

Masumi greeted two rather jet lagged , but excited Candians , in our Hotel Lobby ( daughter booked us into a love hotel thinking Adults only meant no kids) with a big smile and brimming with Enthusiasm!! We were off and running covering not only some of the popular Tokyo sights but also some of the quirky off the beaten track ones. She was amazing at finding places to fulfill my endless food request list !! Masuni's English was perfect and it truly felt like she was our good friend showing us the city she loves. we couldnt have asked for a better first day - it set the tone for a magical three weeks that followed! Maryann and Brian xx

What a wonderful day!!!

From the pre-planning communication to the final goodbye back at the hotel the whole experience was terrific. Masumi was a pleasure to spend the day with - she was attentive and considerate to our needs, and knowledgeable and insightful as we toured around. Masumi offers a perfect balance between guiding and just being a fun person to hang out with. We recommend Masumi without hesitation, she is excellent.
