About Tour Guide Masato N.

Hi, everybody,


It’s my great pleasure to take you to fantastic places and explain the interesting aspects of Japan. I love this job!


The scope of my work primarily covers Tokyo and its suburbs, and I offer both one-day and multi-day tours. I can also guide you to destinations outside Tokyo, such as Kyoto, Nara, or Himeji Castle. In such cases, you will need to cover my transportation, accommodation, and meals in addition to the guide fee.


We use a taxi or a private car on my urban tours to maximize efficiency. If you prefer to use a private car, please arrange it in advance. Japanese taxis are clean, driven by professional drivers, and generally more affordable than a private car.


In 2018, I was ranked number one in popularity on this matching site, GoWithGuide, due to earning five-star reviews from many tourists. It is because of my cheerful personality, humorous conversations, and extensive knowledge across various fields. This expertise is grounded in my diverse professional background:


Magazine reporter.

An executive aide to the CEO of an international advertising agency.

Manager of public relations and advertising for a multinational company.

Over forty years of work experience in Tokyo.


Additionally, I sometimes appear as an actor in TV dramas and have published fourteen e-books available on Amazon, including four in English.


I have suggested some ready-made travel packages, but I prefer to propose a suitable travel plan for you after discussing your preferences.


Please, do not hesitate to let me know what you would like. I’m looking forward to meeting you very soon in Japan.


P.S. I had prostate cancer and after two years of treatment, my strength has almost returned to what it was before I had the disease, so I have decided to resume guiding tourists from July 1, 2024.


Thank you,

Masato


Important

-I can guide you anywhere in Japan if you cover my transportation, meals, and accommodation.

-If you need a private car in the Tokyo area, GoWithGuide recommends booking it directly yourself. If you would like me to handle it, I can do so for a 15% commission on the official price.

-Instead of a private car, you can use a taxi. Taxis are clean, have quality drivers, can accommodate up to four people, and are more affordable.

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
