Our group of 2 middle aged couples just returned from Japan having spent 3 wonderful days with Mitsuro. We are all well traveled but this was our first visit to Japan. Mitsuro was friendly, professional and knowledgeable as he helped endear us to Tokyo and Hakone. He became our friend during these three days and tremendously added to our experience. His primary language is listed as Portuguese as he spent much of his life in Brazil (which has the largest concentration of Japanese outside of Japan) yet his command of both English and Japanese is second to none. If you use Mitsuro as your Tokyo/Hakone guide you will be rewarded with a truly exceptional experience.
