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!

Masa provided our family (8 adults) with a wonderful, full day of sightseeing. Deeply knowledgeable, kind, intelligent and accommodating, he provided great insight, efficiently moved us around Tokyo and was a delight to share a day with. He took us to a very cool old-world, authentic restaurant for lunch in Asakusa we would not otherwise have found. One planning tip, Tokyo is a vast city and working with Masa in advance to organize your day can save you a lot of time on the subway. Thank you, Masa!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you for nice review and encouraging message. It was my great pleasure sharing wonderful time with your family around characteristic spots in Tokyo. I also enjoyed learning a lot from you about comfortable life in Denver. I hope that you will have further fun around various areas in Japan and bring good memory back home. Wishing you, Susanne and your family members all the best! Masaharu

We spent 14 days in Japan and our day spent with Masa was without a doubt on of our favorites! Masa was a great guide and took us all over Tokyo. We sent a list of places we wanted to see and he recommended a few others based on location and timing. Throughout our day together he taught us a lot about Tokyo, proper customs at shrines and the culture as a whole. What we learned from him informed a lot of the rest of our trip. We appreciated his expertise and energy as we walked and took the train all over!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kevin, Thank you very much for your warm and encouraging words. It was really enjoyable day when I could share such wonderful time with you and Megan. I am so grateful to know that our experience on the day helped you feel very informed of characteristic features of Japan for the rest of days you spent in Karuizawa, Kanazawa, Kyoto, etc. looking forward to seeing you and Megan again in the near future. Thanks again and wishing you all the best! Masaharu

Masuharu was a great tour guide who provided outstanding experiences for us on our Tokyo one day tour. Nothing was too much trouble and he made sure we could navigate the rail system independently. Masuharu's knowledge and understanding of his culture were exceptional. We had a wonderful day with Masaharu. We would highly recommend him to enhance your stay in Tokyo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you for your nice review and encouraging words. It was more than my pleasure helping you, your wife and friends enjoy touring around characteristic spots in Tokyo. I also had fun learning a lot from you about Australia.

We spent a second day touring Tokyo with Masaharu. He is a knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide whose love for his country and city is apparent. Both days he was able to introduce us to unique culinary experiences...we especially enjoyed the restaurant in the Ryogoku area where we enjoyed the chanko nabe lunch which is a favorite of sumo wrestlers! Masaharu is a great guide and we would recommend him in a heartbeat!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Debbie, Thank you for your very hearty message. I am frankly feeling more than pleased to know that you enjoyed Ryogoku, chanko nabe lunch. Please further enjoy watching morning sumo practice! I also hope that you will have fun for touring around Shuzenji, Hakone and Western Japan for the rest of your holidays, and bring good memory back to San Francisco. Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future! Masaharu

Masaharu is a fabulous guide and we highly recommend him! He brought the city of Tokyo alive by sharing his love and knowledge of Japanese history and culture. He was able to bring to us an understanding of Japanese traditions as well as insight into modern culture. He escorted us to sites via the labyrinth of the Tokyo subway system (and thanks to him we know we'll be able to navigate it successfully for the remainder of our visit). It was a pleasure to have him introduce us to Tokyo!

Masa was an absolute perfect guide for us on our Tokyo excursion. He is so knowledgeable about history and culture—and patient to answer questions all day long. He was flexible to prioritize the things that were most interesting to our family and spent as much or as little time as we wanted. And perhaps most importantly, he felt like he was just part of our family for the day. He is so easy going and approachable, which made the day not only interesting and educational.....but fun!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrea, Thank you very much for your nice review and encouraging message. I really enjoyed sharing truly wonderful time together with your lovely family. Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Thanks again and wishing your family all the best! Masaharu

We had a wonderful day in Tokyo with Masaharu. It felt more like being with a friend it was so enjoyable. He is extremely knowledgeable and we learned a great deal. Masaharu was flexible, and built an itinerary around our interests but also made sure it was a good overview of key sights. He went above and beyond, making sure we knew how to use the subway, gave us advice not only for our other days in Tokyo but for Kyoto, Hiroshima and Nara. We've traveled a lot—wish all guides were like him.

It was beyond our expectation. He arrived promptly@ our hotel @1000, & we began, what turned out to be a wonderful, fascinating, educational tour of Tokyo. Our guide has a good command of English, so when sharing his wealth of information on the history,culture & architecture of Tokyo & Japan it was easy for us to comprehend. His quiet demeanour & relaxed but efficient pace allowed us to cover a great distance, greatly enhancing our experience

Masaharu-san was a delightful guide for our first full day in Tokyo. His English is superb, which was very helpful since we only knew a few phrases in Japanese. Our tour included a perfect blend of modern and historic Japanese culture, including a lunch at the Sansada tempura restaurant, established in 1837, in the Asakusa district. I would recommend booking Masaharu-san early in your Tokyo trip - following him on the trains that first day gave us much confidence for the remainder of our stay.

Wonderful tour! Mass asked questions on the tour & changed things up as we were going to engage our whole family. We saw so much in 8 hours & felt more comfortable the rest of our time in Tokyo after taking the subway with him! We learned so much. And he helped us purchase tickets for our travel later in the week. Definitely a top notch guide.

Masa was fantastic! We had an amazing day with him. He is personable and such a gentleman. He picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel which was quite out of the way from our tour destinations. He took extra time to teach us about how to navigate the complex subway system and drew on maps for us to keep. He was kind, patient, and an awesome Photographer! He took us to great local Shops we would not have found on our own with authentic and well-priced souvenirs. super flexible! We love him! Thank you!!
