I had worked for the Japan's biggest travel agency JTB (Japan Tourist Bureau) for 35 years as a tour escort for Japanese.
I visited 68 countries and of course all over Japan as well. So I’m familiar with almost all of the tourist attractions in Japan.
More over I’m also a professional magician now. I’m a member magician of The Magic Castle in Hollywood in US. That's why I made a decision to become an English tour guide.
I acquired a tour guide license issued by the Japanese government with a lot of hard work in 2016 and I started this new career.
I guided 1,420 people with 17 groups totaly in 2017and 1,600 people in 1018.
Through long work for travel business, I was assigned to excursions of all over Japan, such as Sapporo, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Okinawa and others, which gave me intimate knowledge about most places in the country.
In addition, I am adept in business fields and knowledgeable about historical sites, traditional culture and modern subcultures in Japan.

Thank you for your review. I am delighted that your family enjoyed sightseeing in Fukuoka and Nagasaki. Please contact me the next time you come to Japan. I will be happy to guide you throughout Japan. Magician Morry Mastoshi
Masatoshi was waiting for us as he promised right outside the terminal. He was informative, kind, knowledgeable and funny. He is an amazing tour guide and surprisingly an amazing magician. I highly recommend him to anyone.
Thank you for your good review. I hope I can guide you someday somewhere. Please enjoy the rest of the trip. Morry
Young and old we all are amaze with magic - how did he ever do that - often thats the question we silently asked in our minds? Magic brings that innocent exitement and happiness within us. From one inquiry to the other, prompt replies, unexpected updates, showing up to the airport even if we didn't asked him to (just to make sure we will arrive to our hotel safe and sound) and so on . . . the rest is history and i couldn't ask for more. If given the chance to travel again to Fukuoka or other parts of Japan, i would still choose Morry-san. A dedicated tourist guide, a fine gentleman and a good family man. Not only did Morry-san showed us superb talent in magic but most importantly he showed us the kind of magic that came from the heart - the LOVE and PASSION in what he does maki... read more

Masatoshi San is a wonderful guide. He treated us to some wonderful sushi in the magic show to break up our day. We spent nearly 8 hours with an itinerary that he put together that made every minute count. We were a little late coming off our crew ship and the patiently waited for us until we were ready to go. I feel as though we’ve made a new friend and we are looking forward to our next visit to Japan and enjoyed his company to show us his unbelievably beautiful country.
Thnak you George san. I also had a good time with you. I’m looking forward to seeing you soon in Japan again. Masatoshi
