Masa san was a lot of fun. We didn't have too much time with him, but we really enjoyed spending an evening with him. He is easy-going, polite, and has a great sense of humor. It was very interesting to talk with him about modern Japanese culture. We are very glad to have met him, and I highly recommend him as a tour guide if you are visiting Tokyo!

Masa was very knowledgeable about Tokyo, where to go as a local and the customs. He showed me how to use and navigate the train system and purchase tickets (most valuable for the 1st day in a city). He took me to a local place to have a traditional japanese pub style meal. Masa is also very knowledgeable about sake - which was a nice bonus.

Tour Guide Comment: Rebecca san, thank you for a nice comment! Do you remember the red vegitable seemed to be a dragon fruit? It's English name is Watermelon Raddish. I was able to taste it by your help, thank you:)

If you want to experience Tokyo in its true local way, you must engage Masakazu Nakayama to see it. Since it was a first time trip for myself to Japan, I was very keen on seeing places and experience the culture first hand. Mr Masakazu is a wonderful guide who is soft spoken and very patient, who will show you the real Tokyo life. I was provided with a completely flexible tour itinerary for the hours booked and it was done entirely at my pace. I highly recommend Masakazu Nakayama for Tokyo.

Tour Guide Comment: HI, Johnny! Thank you for too nice comment! I never forget the time with you having a big Sasebo burger together at Ueno Park! Hope to see you again soon!

Masa understood my interests in food and shochu perfectly, and took me to places I would have never been able to enjoy on my own. He was responsive and easy to work with.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Kenny san, Long time no see! Thank you for good rating! Time spent with you was one of the happiest time to me while guiding foreign travelers in Japan. Let's see you next visit in Tokyo! Best, Masa

Masa was absolutely fantastic! It was our first day in Tokyo and we chose to do a half day orientation. He took us to the Akihabara area of the city, and of course we had to go to a Maid Café for lunch. What a hoot! I wanted to learn all about Sake, and Masa being an expert taught me the finer points and everything I need to know. It is two and a half years since we were there and I still talk about our time with him. Thank you Masa!!

Tour Guide Comment: Hi Gale san, Thanks for good rating. You two were very kind and friendly guest. I remember the time spent with you happily. When you come to Tokyo next time, I will help you with much pleasure. Thanks! Masa
