Masa is extremely knowledgeable about not only the sights around us but also the culture. He spent time with us determining the best tour options based on our interests. He very patiently explained historical and cultural relevance for the things we saw. He went beyond the norm to make sure we learned and enjoyed more about Tokyo. We will use him again soon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris san, Thank you for your nice and encouraging review. It was my great pleasure helping you enjoy viewing and tasting various features of Tokyo. Looking forward to guiding your family around other important and attractive spots soon. Best regards, Masaharu
We had a wonderful half day with Masaharu. He was very tuned into making our time interesting and answer all questions we had. Our teens enjoyed the tour too despite the heat. We saw the Manga area, the Fish market, the temple there and ate wonderful sushi. He accompanied us to the monorail to make sure we found it. We appreciated the extra time he gave us in order to be able to watch a bit of the wedding in the temple. It was a beautiful experience. I would highly recommend Masaharu.

Masaharu took into account interest of my teen kids when suggesting sights to see. Very easy going and pleasure to have as a guide. We had a history and cultural lesson at the same time. Great way to see Tokyo for the first time.

Great experience with a custom tour by Masa through the Tsikiji Fish Market with my 90 year old father. It was so much more informative than had we just gone by ourselves. Masa covered everything from the history of Tokyo to the significance of Samarai Warriors, and knew so much about this area, its temple, and people. We finished with a wonderful meal together at his favorite restaurant enjoying the taste of sushi, oysters and more. I would highly recommend him for tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter, Thank you very much for your nice and encouraging review. I also had wonderful time to share with you and your lovely father and learned a lot about your family and your country. I am pleased to know that you enjoyed Tsukiji market walk tour symbolizing Japanese kitchen and old Edo period culture. I am looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Thanking you again and wishng you all the best! Masaharu

Masa was a wonderful tour guide to our family during our vacation in Tokyo. He spent half a day with us, showing us various sites. He was easy to talk to, very patient (especially with our 2 young children), and provided very helpful info about the different places we visited. We are especially grateful for Masa accommodating us on very short notice. We highly recommend him to anyone thinking about a tour guide in Japan. Thank you Masa for a memorable and fun experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eric, Thank you very much for your nice review. It was my great pleasure joining your family and sharing wonderful time together in Tokyo. I believe that you enjoyed cherry blossoms and exciting fish market. I am looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Thank you again and wishing you all the best! Masaharu

My husband and I learned a lot from our guide, Mr. Masaharu-san. He brought us to Asakusa, which we especially like because of its festive mood in an old Tokyo setting; the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace and the Meiji Shrine where we fortunately witnessed a traditional wedding. Mr. Masaharu-san made sure we reach these places on time and return to our hotel in time for our departure for the airport. Many thanks, Masaharu-san! We enjoyed the tour as much as we enjoyed your company!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jenny-san, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I am grateful to know that you really enjoyed visiting three places. It was also my great pleasure joining you and your husband and learning about your country. I am expecting to see your family in the near future again. Thank you again and wishing you all the best!
