A Recent Review of this tour

We loved our day with Masa - he gave us one of our best vacation days ever! He is a wonderful guide who is very refined, and lived in London for years so his English is fantastic. He is very patient and knowledgeable about all things Tokyo and Japan. If you can spend a day with Masa, you will be a better person for it!
