“ guiding in Tokyo ”

Masako is nice pleasant person to work, we like our time while in Tokyo.


Hi Sheharyar, thank you for your review. We didn't have much time in Tokyo. I wish I could have. Did you enjoy Japan a lot? We expect you come to Japan again some other day.

“ Excellent Tokyo tour ”

Masako was so lovely. She organised a tour for us on very short notice. Introducing us to the very complicated Tokyo subways. Her English is very good and she is a happy and generous guide. We visited Shibuyu Scamble, Tokyo Skytree, the Imperial Palace East gardens were unfortunately closed but she showed us to the gates and lovely photo spot. Then we went to the Ginza district for lunch before a highlight Diabo waterfront, a place we didn’t know about but was a fantastic spot. We had a wonderful day thank you Masako.

“ Sushi making experience ”

We had such an incredible, delightful, and delicious day making sushi in Masako’s home. Thank you Masako for making memories with us to last a lifetime. The sushi was amazing and fresh. Now we can make our own at home and remember our training from Masako. I would recommend this to everyone!!!


Thank you for a good review ! I'm so happy you liked my Sushi making program working together. Please remember it as long as possible. Have a good time in Japan !
