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!

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.

“ 1st time in Japan. We saw a lot in one day in Tokyo and 2nd day we took a train to Kyoto with Mitsuru ”

It was a Pleasure to spend time with Mitsuru. He spoke very good English, very knowledgeable, flexible and prompt. He also helped us to navigate through Tokyo alone on our off days. He educated us & gave us tips on how to use the train system. He was just GREAT! We HIGHLY recommend Misuru. We look forward to seeing him on our next visit. A genuine and pleasant person to spend a few days with.

“ A great day out ”

Family of 4 with two teenage boys and 1st time to Tokyo. Mitsuru showed us around some great sites targeting things of interest for our teenage boys. We saw things that we never would have by ourselves. His navigation of the transport system was top class. We all had a wonderful day. I would recommend Mitsuru very very highly.

“ Amazing day ”

Mitsuru was the perfect guide. He met my boyfriend and I at our hotel at 9am. He even checked in that morning to see if that time was still ok for us. When we met in the lobby, he pulled out a planner binder and showed us a map of Tokyo. He reviewed all the things we wanted to see and did a quick recap of everything we were visiting and confirmed the types of transportation we were comfortable with. We were excited to use the public transportation system but was happy to be advised when taxing was the best time option. We visited Tokyo station, double bridges at Imperial Palace, a brief stop at Tokyo Tower, Zojoji Temple, Nihonbashi Bridge. Nakaima Dori, Senso-ji Temple, Asakusa Beer Hall, Hachiko Statue and many more before he returned us to our hotel. He gave us so much informatio... read more


Aloha Joslyn! Thank you so much for such a kind comments!! I am very glad when clients notice how much efforts are put into the customized tour preparation. Yes, Tokyo’s public transportation system is massive, complex and efficient! Sometimes requires some long distance walking, so in such as case, I recommend taxi or others means of transportation to make your day more productive and less tiring. Also glad to see your excitement along the tour all the way! I hope this has been your first of many others future visits to Japan. From Hokkaido to Okinawa, so many different landscapes, culture etc!! Thank you guys for your cooperation before and during the tour. I see you guys again some day by here or on the Pacific, Mahalo!!! ☀️🙏😀

“ Great tour guide for my son ”

Mitsuru was the guide for my 12 year old son while we were in Japan. I had business two days so we were looking for a guide to show my son the sights while I was working (two days). My son has a strong interest in Japanese culture, architecture, and history. Mitsuru was a perfect choice for this. He was punctual, had great suggestions and my son got along with him very well. At the end of each day my son would comment about how much he learned and how well he got along with Mitsuru He knows all the best spots and is not shy about "rejecting" some of the ones I brought up from the tour books as he had much better suggestions! I'm glad he overrode me! I would recommend Mitsuru, and if I'm ever fortunate enough to visit Japan again, I will look up Mitsuru!


Hi Ryan, tour with Will was fantastic.. oh god, what a nice and intelligent boy! Never met a kid with such a strong interest on Japanese culture. I am glad that he enjoyed everything, from cool things for a 12yo boy, The Gundam Base, mangas, comics in English, Digital Museum.. to Japanese samurai’s history, gastronomy, gardens, ride the bullet train, pirate ship etc. We really had 2 awesome days in Tokyo and Hakone town!! I am sure you also spent memorable days with him at Tokyo Dome, Sumo Tournament etc.. this is the kind of trip that will definitely add value on his adult life. Please regards to him.. Thank you for everything and hope you can come again with all your family in the future! Hugs from Mitsuru Japan
