Welcome to Japan!! (English version: standard tours start with 0..)
¡Bienvenidos a Japón! (Versión en español: recorridos estándar empieza con 1..)
Bem vindos ao Japão! (Versão em português: passeio padrão inicia com 2..)

I am Mitsuru, I work as tour guide in Tokyo and Kanto region. I am a Japanese national, born and raised in Brazil, lived in Australia for about 2 years and I love traveling, hiking, ride a bicycle, meet different people.. ice cream!!

I’d say Tokyo is so unique city, because it is not only the political capital, but also the largest Japanese city for business, entertainment, shopping and gastronomy. Since 6 years ago, when Tokyo was choosen to host 2020 Olympic Games, this metropolis is becoming even better.

I’d love to guide you based on 3e: entertainment, educational and experience, so as most as possible, let’s learn about the past, let’s enjoy the present and let’s get excited with the future!

Looking forward to see you in Japan!

Soy Mitsuru, guía turístico en Tokio. Nací en San Pablo (Brasil), he vivido en Australia por unos 2 años.. y viajado a ciudades en Asia y América Latina.

Realmente disfruto de ir de excursión, andar en bicicleta, naturaleza, nuevas culturas, ah helado..

Yo diría que Tokio es una ciudad única, porque no solo es la capital política, sino también la ciudad japonesa más grande de negocios, entretenimiento, compras y gastronomía. Desde hace 6 años, cuando Tokio fue elegida para albergar los Juegos Olímpicos de 2020, esta metrópolis se está volviendo aún mejor.

Me encantaría guiarte basado en 3e: educación, entretenimiento y experiencia, así como lo más posible, aprendamos sobre el pasado, ¡disfrutemos el presente y entusiasmemos con el futuro!

Gracias por su atención.. ¡Hasta luego!

Aqui é o Mitsuru, sou guia turístico em Tóquio. Nasci e cresci em São Paulo, morei na Austrália.. e viajei por cidades na Ásia e América Latina.

Gosto muito de caminhar, andar de bicicleta, aprender novas culturas, oh sorvete tb!

Eu diria que Tóquio é uma cidade única, pois não é apenas a capital política, mas também a maior cidade japonesa para negócios, entretenimento, compras e gastronomia. Desde 2013 , quando Tóquio foi escolhida para sediar os Jogos Olímpicos 2020, esta metrópole está se tornando ainda melhor.

Gostaria de guiá-lo com base em 3e: educação, entretenimento e experiência, de modo que, na medida do possível, vamos aprender sobre o passado, vamos aproveitar o presente e nos entusiasmaremos com o futuro!

Obrigado e até breve aqui no Japão!

“ Perfect Day ”

Mitsuru was a joy to be with. I would highly recommend his tour and encourage you to tell him what you want to see and he will customize the day for you. He has an easy going, relaxed vibe and his english is fluent. 5 stars all the way.


Hi Mike!! Thank you very much for your words! Not that fluent, but I learn a lot from easy going people like you & Lisa.. Fortunately it was a sunny day and not like those too hot days of the last summer you were here! Hah.. Please take care and I am waiting for you and Lisa again to explore others regions around the archipelago!! Hugs, Mitsuru Japan

“ Excellent guide! The best ”

Mitsuru is really an excellent guide!!! Everything was tailored to perfection! He did tour with exact time tables and we got to see the most possible!!! Speaks both English and Spanish and is a very caring human being and also fun! Our tour was a total five star experience!!!


Querida Ana, you & Nito are always welcome!! You guys are so well traveled and still can find the beauty in every situation and even in small things like Japanese sandwich! 😂 Just 😍 it! I really appreciate that you realizedthe tour to KAMAKURA was tailored and YOKOHAMA was a plus, due to your plans to Kyoto. Next please enjoy Kansai and I will see you soon in the near future! ¡Muchas gracias por todo! 🙏

“ Great street to our trip ”

I booked Mitsuru to do exactly what he provided and then some! We talked several times via email and turned out great. I asked to get familiar with the train lines, get Suica cards, see points of interest around our hotel area and help me redeem my U2 tickets at 7-11. He had a great personality and my family and I enjoyed every minute. It was a downpour of rain that day and we just adapted around it. I feel like we gained a new friend that day and would have gladly spent more time with Mitsuru.


Lisaa, thank you so much! I also enjoyed our day trip with you and the “kids”, lol.. very impressed how active you are and how much you love U2 shows, your “Disneyland” 😂 .. yes, all went well cause you asked in advance! 👍 I am sure you enjoyed the show at the Saitama Arena and hope you come back soon my friend, hopefully in a sunny day, although I really love your way of thinking “it is what it is”, instead of “OMG”!! By the way, I hope kids enjoyed the real Disney as well :) Hugs and regards to all you guys, Mitsuru Japan

“ Amazing day with a great guide! ”

We had the pleasure of spending a whole day with Mitsuru. We visited several exciting sites and had some great meals together. I would (and already have) recommend Mitsuru to friends.


Hi Stian, it was very nice to guide you guys from so far away! Thanks a lot for your coming to Japan and all F&B, aperol spritz at the new Shibuya Sky was very cool! See you again here or in NORWAY.. by the way, good lucky friend! ;-)
