Hi, I'm Makoto. Just call me Mac or whatever you would like to call. I've been in Singapore for 2 years, in Vietnam for 6 months and in Philippine for 1 month. Then finally I went back to Japan in December 2012.
Unfortunately it's tough to take long holidays as a typical Japanese worker, so I decided to guide and communicate with foreign people staying Japanese.
Let's go a Japanese local culture tour together.

Our night out with Makoto was such a special experience that we will never forget, we had so much fun and he was such a lovely host. I would recommend this experience to anyone. We drank sake, beer and enjoyed local food, we would have never had the courage to visit some of these places on our own due to the language barrier. A fun night was had all round. Thank you Makoto
We had a good time eating the izakaya and seeing the yakitori street. Makoto is a good guide who is very happy to give tours. Thanks for the good time!
We had a great time on the Yokocho night. Makoto is a wonderful guide who really enjoys taking people out to show them the town. We had excellent sake, and was able to try some great food. Highly recommend as an early outing when arriving in Tokyo.
Even though the weather was really bad, the evening with Makoto was really fun! He even brought his friend with him to go with us. We first went to taste different kinds of sake on this nice local place. After that we went to a yakitori izakaya where we had a great dinner and lots of fun.
So thank you Makoto, I had a really great evening with you guys. Hope we'll meet again someday. 😄
Makoto met me at the exact minute stated and then we went on a bars night crawl. He exposed me to a sake speciality standing pub and we had a large variety of sake and pub food, and followed up by a very nice walk through a food street and amazing yakitori dinner! As we chatted, he took note of my interests and brought me to nearby places that had things of interests for me. Great host!
We had an incredible evening. Makoto was a perfect host and super nice guy! We were able to see parts of Tokyo that we wouldn't have been able to experience as regular tourists. Highly recommended!
I had a great Evening. One of the Best Evenings I had. Makoto is a very friendly and very informative. He made my experience truly memorable.
Thanks, Makoto. Hope to see you again.
Had a great night with Mak, got to experience real Japanese food, drinks and culture. Took us places we would never have found on our own.
Very friendly knowledgable guide, would highly recommend.
