Morimasa was a wonderful guide. He was promptly in our hotel lobby at 9 and his English was understandable. He took us to all the places we had previously discussed while answering any question about Japanese culture or history we asked. We did a lot of walking, but mixed in subway rides and a boat trip on a Tokyo canal. An outstanding introduction to Tokyo. I would highly recommend his to anyone seeking a great Tokyo guide.

Morimasa gave us a day-long tour of Tokyo. We completely enjoyed it and him, and especially appreciated all the information on Japan and Tokyo that he passed along to us. He taught us the history of the city and its sights but also showed us modern Tokyo and its neighborhoods. In addition, there seemed to be no question that he could not answer. This was a most personal and very informative tour; we highly recommend his services.

Nikko is a wonderful trip. The temples are beautiful and it's wonderful to see some surrounded by cypress groves, in contrast to more urban settings. We enjoyed this tour and the guide very much. Morimasa is very knowledgeable, his English excellent and easy to understand. We had a great time.

Morimasa is a lovely and very knowledgeable gentleman. He limits his tour group to 4 persons -- and now we understand why. He's very thoughtful and he gives personal attention to each guest. He also gave us some important pointers on how to navigate the Tokyo train system, as we had decided to go on our own the following day. We highly recommend him!

We saw an incredible variety of sights that left us feeling we had seen much of Tokyo. We went to the Fish Market, a variety of temples and shrines, Ginza, and more. Ogawa-san helped us order lunch at a very good neighborhood noodle house. We know Tokyo has much more to offer, but we got an excellent introduction to Tokyo which is just what we were looking for. Highly recommend Ogawa-san.

If you are looking for a tour where you can learn local history and culture in the context of world history and culture, this is the tour for you. Morimasa is a lovely gem, and a deep pool of knowledge. He has, himself, traveled extensively (touring 47 of the 50 US states with 3 to go : )), as well as several other countries! His English is superb and communication was very easy. He came prepared with subway and city maps that he left with me ---SOOO helpful later on. I highly recommend Morimasa!

Morimasa was an excellent tour guide.

He was a pleasure to spend the day with; friendly, generous and knowledgeable. We give him our highest possible endorsement.

Morimasa was an excellent tour guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with him. He slowed down the pace for my husband who was taking lots of pictures. We ate at a 100 year old restaurant of his choice which was very good. We saw so much in one day and feel like we got a real sense of Tokyo life. We would not hesitate to go on a tour with him again when we return to Tokyo.

He did a great job explaining about all the things the markets sell and the unique stores and traditions of the older neighborhoods. This is exactly what we wanted to see. We had lunch a very traditional restaurant and it was excellent. Morimasa is very professional and tireless. We had a great time.

Morimasa made sure our first day in Tokyo was a success. He made sure we hit all the hightlights, but was patient enough to let us stop at different shops along the way. He knew my wife wanted a Kimono and took us to a great local shop. He took us to a great soba place for lunch and was kind enough to take us to his favorite rest in Ginz to help us make dinner res, and called another rest to help us make next day dinner res. Definitely goes above and beyond. Highly recommend! Andrew

Our guide was very knowledgeable professional.

His English was very good. We very much enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend Morimasa to any visitors to Tokyo. The only part of the tour that was rather boring was the river cruise-not much to see, but it was good to sit down.

Morimasa is an outstanding guide. I was fortunate to have him guide me through Tokyo on two successive days.

We got almost all our requests fulfilled but we just ran out of time and didn't get to see the Meiji Shrine. But Mori did his very best to try to make things work. His English, knowledge of Tokyo and its history, and world knowledge are all excellent. Oh and you'll be surprised at this man's stamina... he can walk upwards of 15 miles a day!

Morimasa was an outstanding guide. He was available at short notice which was helpful for us. He responded to our initial inquiry quickly and thoroughly answering all questions we had in regards to booking our tour. He arrived where we were staying a day in advance to be sure he could locate us without difficulty the morning of our tour. Morimasa is extremely knowledgeable! We are so grateful to have met him and to have experienced a private guide from a local. We highly recommend Morimasa!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Valerie for your warm words. Unfortunately the weather in Hakene was not too friendly to us, but I hope you enjoyed the tour full.

Although it was 95 F with very high humidity, I still enjoyed walking with Morimasa throughout the city seeing the sights, and learning about Buddhism and Shintoism. We didn't just do the normal touristy stuff. I needed help getting around and booking other stuff for the upcoming days. Morimasa took me to Tokyo Station to help me activate my JR Pass and brought me to a tourist center in Asakusa to help me buy tickets to see the Yakult Swallows prof baseball game. Hope to see you next trip Morimasa!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. It was really a very hot day in Tokyo. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the tour in the heat.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Morimasa-san. His itinerary provided an excellent introduction to Tokyo. We were very pleased with how many places we were able to visit. He is very knowledgable about the history of Tokyo and Japan and also answered all of our questions about its current culture. He taught us how to use the subway and train systems and gave suggestions on additional things to do during the rest of our stay. We strongly recommend Morimasa's tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Kathleen-san, choosing my tour. I hope you and your lovely family enjoy extraordinary hot Japan fully.

Great experience, especially trying to see a mega city in one day. Morimasa's knowledge of the city and country, its history and culture makes this trip well worthwhile. Unfortunately the fish market was closed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your rating. Did you notice a rather large earthquake this afternoon? I hope you have a safe and successful trip in Korea and China.

Again, Morimassa displayed his knowledge, love for his city and charm. We had a logistical mix-up due to a taxi shortage, but he quickly revised the plans for the morning and gave us a terrific tour - exploring a less visited (but very interesting part of the city. And we got to our plane in time!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am a member and correspondent of Chuo City Tourism Association, Tokyo and have walked the area quite often. I feel very happy to show you the area where not many tourists visit.

Morimassa put together a comprehensive tour of Tokyo, both old and new. He was clearly knowledgeable about his city, and enjoyed sharing it. His communication and planning before the tour was excellent, working out a plan to allow the four of us to check our luggage and tour before leaving for two different airports. He also displayed great flexibility and knowledge - so that when we got hungry at an odd time, he found a great nearby restaurant.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Miki-san. I enjoyed guiding you. I am very happy to hear you enjoyed my tour.

I met Morimasa-san during my first visit to Tokyo, and I enjoyed our tour so much that I booked another tour with him for my second visit to the city. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of Tokyo, and he is delightful to spend time with. My wife also enjoyed the tour with Morimasa-san, especially the Tsukiji fish market, and she had fun asking him lots of questions about Japanese food and culture.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You two are very good tourists for me who studied well in advance and asked good questions. I am always very happy to guide such curious tourist who at the end of tour learn and enjoy a lot. I had a pleasant guiding. Thank you.

This is a very useful tour if you need help finding your way around. Morimasa is not an anime or manga expert but he is very helpful and will help you in whatever way you need. We were very happy with his guidance, in particular the Animation Centre we would never have found on our own.

Mori was very organized , gave me an itinerary when we met and gave me an all day rail pass and made it convenient by paying for entrance fees and tea time and i just paid him back at the end of the tour. His knowledge of Tokyo is amazing , from the far away past and most recent til present . He speaks very good English too and we agreed twice on the joy of sashimi and the joy of ramen .

Morimasa was very knowledgeable and organized. He patiently answered countless questions and was well informed. Mishima is a lovely little town with a beautiful shrine and fresh water wells that you can actually drink from. We took some nice photos under a light canopy of cherry blossoms. Great opportunity to take a short ride on the bullet train and experience some place outside of Tokyo. Highly recommended!
