About Tour Guide Masako N.

Hello. I am Masako and a national certified tour guide.

I was born and raised in Tokyo and now live in Kanagawa. So, I am familiar with both Tokyo and Kanagawa, such as Kamakura. Tokyo is an eclectic city, traditional and modern, having many must-see tourist spots. I promise you will have a great day with special experiences. While Kamakura was historically important. Religious buildings and rich nature achieve a great harmony in the city. Takes about an hour by train from Tokyo. It's a good place for one-day trip. You will be fascinated with its beauty.

Looking forward to seeing you and showing you around our beautiful cities!


I can guide you in the metropolitan area including Tokyo and Kanagawa every day as long as I am available.


Experience the historic and modern city Tokyo!

What would you like to do in Tokyo? I will show you both traditional and modern sightseeing spots, and would have you experience the local life in Tokyo.

Fantastic to see key locations in the one tour

Masako was fantastic in helping us navigate our way around Tokyo on our first day. We efficiently got to each location and Masako explained the history and culture which we would have missed without her. Masako also answered all of our questions which really set us up for the rest of the week. Can’t thank you enough Masako, you were so kind and helpful, it really made our stay wonderful. Have a wonderful new year and we look forward to visiting Japan again soon.

Highly Recommend

Communication was great from the start. She provided suggestions or options for my kids. She was early for both meeting times. Very knowledgeable and informed about the tours and we learned quite a bit. I would definitely use her again for a guide in Tokyo even if not for the visa requirements.
