Hi, everybody,

My name is Masato Niitsu.
It's my great pleasure to show you delicious foods here, beautiful natures, historical buildings and kind, polite Japanese people. I am very proud of clean town and subways as well.

I had worked for a publishing company as a reporter/editor, and for an international advertising agency and a multinational automobile tire manufacturer in Tokyo for about forty years long in total.

With these business background and my age, I can produce a very happy tour for you in Tokyo and in many other major sightseeing areas such as Mt. Fuji/Hakone resort aresa, Kamakura(old city first governed by Samurai), Kyoto, Shirakawago, Nikko, Kanazawa and other places popular among tourists from overseas.

In February 2017, I was invited to a tour in Europe by European travel agency because my customers highly evaluated my guide service during their stay in Japan.

I love this job because it suits me.
I love to bring you everywhere in Japan you want. And
I love to show you the Japanese custom, cuisine and history.

Let's enjoy your tour in Japan with me.
I am looking forward to meeting you very soon.

P.S.
- I have experience to handle a group of thirty persons and more, ten times and more. School tour, college tour and another group tour could be accepted.
- I will ask a pretty girl colleague to help me if necessary.

Thank you.

Masato Niitsu
