About

Hi, everybody,

My name is Masato.

It's my great pleasure to introduce you Japanese history, culture, delicious food, beautiful nature, historical buildings, and shopping areas for you. I am willing to do the tour guide job.

I guess the reasons why tourists gave me high marks after their tour in Japan with me are my knowledge of various fields based on the following backgrounds.

- I had worked for a publishing company as a reporter,

- I used to work an aide to the CEO of an international advertising agency, Japan office,

- I had worked as a manager of public relations and advertisement of a multinational automobile tire manufacturer in Japan.

- I have a long experience worked in Tokyo for about forty years in total.

I used to be ranked number one on the TripleLights tour guide popularity in 2018, and always getting a five-star review from the tourists.

In February 2017, I was invited to a tour in Europe by the travel agency there because of my excellent tour guiding service. The tourists gave me a high mark.

I'm looking forward to meeting you very soon in Japan.

P.S.

I have experiences to handle a group of thirty persons and more, ten times and more.

School tour, a college tour, and another group tour could be accepted.

I will hire colleague guides if necessary.

Thank you.

Masato

Energetic guide who goes above and beyond

Masato was an excellent guide and was especially patient with our family of three generations. He shared insights into Japanese culture and history without overwhelming us with information, and he put together a customized schedule that worked well for everyone, even when we had a lot of extra stops. We arranged a driver as well and Masato went out of his way to make sure all the details were in place and that the driver knew where to go. We would never have gotten to see so many things in the short time we had in Tokyo without his help. We are grateful to have shared the day with Masato!

Hi Ashley, Thank you for your kind words to me. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed so much with my guide. I will still expect your generation and the kids' generation to come to Japan again very soon. Please enjoy the rest days in Japan. Please say hello to everybody in your family. Masato

Sensoji and Woodworking with Masato was great!

Masato served as our guide during our visit to Sensoji, Kappabashi shopping street, and was our interpreter during a Sashimono woodworking class where we made our own chopsticks! He was very knowledgable about the area and the history, and was the perfect translator for our workshop. He was able to easily translate all of the intricate woodworking verbiage, and we were very lucky to have him there with us! Thank you so much, Masato! We loved spending our day with you!
