A wonderful evening! I had a lovely evening touring the izakayas with Masa. I was his only client that evening, so I had his full attention. The establishments we visited were very authentic and the food was very good. I especially enjoyed the mushroom soba noodles and the pickles, all hand made by the izakaya owner, a woman in her eighties who was simply lovely. Masa is very knowledgeable about his hometown and about all that there is to see around Nagano. I highly recommend this tour.

Memorable food & drink tour The izakaya night food tour was the highlight of my visit in Nagano. I was privileged to have a one on one evening food tour with an amazing tour guide, Masa who took me to three amazing food/drink through town. I was able to experience how the Nagano community gathered and enjoyed conversations and share their daily lives at these restaurants. Masa took the time to explain the types of foods I ate which all were delicious. The walk & conversation I had with Masa at the food tour will forever be a precious memory. I definitely recommend this tour with a fantastic food tour with Masa.

Amazing night Fantastic tour. Guide fluent English. Had amazing food and drinks in places I would never have gone alone. If you’re after a good night out and have some local food, don’t look any further.

Temple, sale and local culture tour One of the best tours we have ever been on! Masa has such a deep and rich knowledge of the area that you can’t help but learn. The tour takes you through the beautiful Zenkoji Temple and the surround area before ending at the Sake brewery. Warm, engaging and deeply knowledgeable we cannot thank Masa more for making it such a special day.

Thoughtful and engaging walking tour in Nagano City- Good food too! Masa is a great guide. He's very relaxed and conversational- not just telling you a bunch of information that you could read on the signs. He does a nice thoughtful job of hitting both the "must see" sites in the temple etc and going on back roads to see a less tourist side of Nagano. Also- he takes great pics of you which he'll email after the tour. He also gave me good context for visiting shrines etc, so later when I went on my own to some in a small village I felt like I knew how to respectfully interact there without offending any local people praying. And all the food we had was delicious!

Masa is a friendly and engaging tour guide. I thoroughly enjoyed the walking and cultural tour of Nagano City and Zenkoji temple. He does a nice job of balancing hitting the basic tourist sites and walking through more regular streets. Through our conversation he helped me understand several cultural topics which also served me well to enjoy the rest of my journey in Japan . Also- he takes great pictures which he sends to you. I loved the food stops.
