“ The best way to get around Tokyo ”

Mitsuru was very careful when planning our visit, and made sure we got exactly the experience we wanted from Tokyo, with the right balance of tourist hotspots and local finds. His patience when explaining local habits and teaching us how to ride the tube were the reason we were able to get around the rest of the country, and his impecable guidance made it able for us to cover all of Tokyo in the little time we had with him. We would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun and educational experience in Tokyo. Thank you Mitsuru, we hope to see you again soon!

Mitsuru:

Hey Catarina!! You & Andre have such a great vibe and I enjoyed a lot introducting Tokyo to you guys! Thanks for trusting on my recommendations plus being your new friend on IG. I am also glad that you spent awesome time in multiple cities in Japan and that my tips were useful during your stay. Thanks for your cooperation and support to our people. Considering this global pandemic, Japan still has not so many cases of covid-19, but Tours in Japan or anywhere in the world may take time from now on. So, I am sure you guys were very lucky and took the right decision, on the right time. Stay safe and healthy, so we will be able to meet again soon here or who know in São Paulo!! Super obrigado e abraços!! ?

“ Amazing Guide, Highly Recommend, 2 Fantastic days with our Family in Tokyo & Hakone. ”

We had the pleasure of spending two separate days with Mitsuru. He was the best guide we could have asked for. We initially booked him for the day after we arrived to show us around Tokyo, but more importantly to teach us how to get around. He met us at our hotel, and we immediately felt comfortable with him. He showed us not only how to use the subway, but what all the signs meant, what to look for, and how to top up our cards when needed. By the end of the day, we had not only seen many sights, learnt a lot of history, learnt many customs, but most importantly felt comfortable getting around on our own. He also engaged well with the kids (Aged 19, 17, & 11) and made them all feel comfortable and happy to ask questions. We then booked Mitsuru to take us on a day trip to see Mt Fuji.... read more

Mitsuru:

Hey Cass, oh you guys are so easygoing.. cheers Aussies!! Since the 1st contact with Andrew, I could fell we were all going to spend a great time! Thanks for trusting on my recommendation for both Tokyo and Hakone! We really had so much fun in both days!! Remember the waitress in Tokyo? She took tons of pics and only one was good! ?, on the other hand the waitress in Hakone took us the best pic of our days!! Btw, Hakone day was also so nice, covered by snow everywhere and we couldn’t take better pics!! Especially at Mt. Owakudani and around the lake, where you guys quickly found a great similarity with Queenstown in NZ! Ah, not to mention of throwing snowballs, OMG I miss Jack! ?. It was great for me to customize this tour, showing you guys how to get bullet train from the crowded Tokyo st... read more

“ Most magical day in Tokyo ”

Mitsuru took us on the most wonderful tour of Tokyo, he impressively navigated us around on a rainy day and tweaked the plan to accommodate the wet weather, delivering us a spectacular day full of culture, food and fun. We were so impressed with how he found something for each of us, which is pretty amazing when you have two adults and three children aged 13yr, 10yr and 7yr! Each one of us found something so special from the day. Was particularly impressed with Mitsuru who learnt my husband was a chef so took him to an amazing food hall that was an absolute delight. We learnt so much from Mitsuru, about Edo, I loved our trip to Ryojuku and particularly the Sake vending machines :) without his help we would not have been so confident on the trains for our remaining days! We would not... read more

Mitsuru:

Angeee, thank you!!!!! It was really an awesome day for me! What a wonderful family you have.. I enjoyed all the moments we spent together, including seeing Castor having fun at Pokemon store, please say your boys that I envy their hair style and I wish I could have a similar one when I was in their age! :) Benn, wish you success on your business!! Yeah, Ange.. sake tasting is always fun too, kanpai! Cheers! ? Hope to visit your area some day and hopefully to learn something about wine with Benn and definitely try some great dishes from your restaurant! Please come to Japan again and let’s visit other areas, including some off the beaten path, like you region in the beautiful countryside of NSW ?! I am already following you guys on IG.. Hugs and thanks a lot again!! Mitsuru Japan

“ 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.

Mitsuru:

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

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!!!

“ 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.

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.

Mitsuru:

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! ;-)

“ Favorite Day in Tokyo with Incredible Guide ”

With a limited time (3 days) in Tokyo, I was incredibly fortunate to have Mitsuru as a guide. Prior to meeting, we communicated about putting together a custom tour to learn about both the historic and new aspects of Tokyo. Mitsuru appeared on time with a planned itinerary to show my girlfriend and I the Nehonbashi Bridge as the center of Edo, and explained the historical significance of the nearby markets. We attended a department store opening to welcome its customers, a sake tasting, a cruise in Tokyo bay, fashion boutiques, samurai gardens, sumo stables, the 2020 Olympic site, and much more to learn about Tokyo past-to-present, hopping around via the metro. I definitely recommend having a 24-hour metro pass to make the most of your time. Mitsuru happily answered any question and was ex... read more

Mitsuru:

Dear Jeremy, I am really glad that you & Victoria enjoyed those days in Tokyo.. I feel lucky for attracting nice couples like you guys! You are very active and young, so I thought metro could be a good way to explore the city. Tokyo is very challenger city and for each type of visitor, there is a right mean of transportation, right spots to be visited etc. So, thank you for letting me know your preferences, physical condition and interests, then I could plan and customized your tour accordingly! Thanks for the nomination Tokyo’s ambassador ?.. If you have a chance, please come again and let’s visit others parts of Japan! Thank you so much and see you guys again here or in PA!

“ Hakone day trip ”

Mitsuru was an absolutely fantastic tour guide. He took time to customize our agenda in Hakone for the day based on our requests, and along the way took time to explain each area we visited all with the perfect balance of culture, history and conversation. He has a great personality and was also thoughtful enough to help us pick out authentic souvenirs for our family before the day was up, as well as to recommend additional things for us to do while in Tokyo. Highly recommend Mitsuru!

Mitsuru:

Hi David! Yes, this tour was well planned since typhoon Hagibis really damaged Hakone and as for now, the main transit area (Tozan train from/to Gora > Hakone Yumoto Sta) is still under reparations. All went pretty well, taxi, bullet trains, locals transportation etc!! Thank you for your cooperation and understanding! It was a great day for me too! I am waiting for you and Denise in the near future to show others parts of Japan! Please take care and hugs from Tokyo, Mitsuru

“ Awesome Tour Guide ”

“We wish we could have had Mitsuru with us everyday in Tokyo. He is a wonderful tour guide and the next time we’re in Tokyo, we will definitely request his services again. Five Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️” “He did a wonderful job showing us how to get around in Tokyo and most importantly, how to interact with shop and restaurant owners/workers. We felt ready to conquer Tokyo after our day long tour with our amazing guide Mitsuru. ??” Most importantly he met us at our AirBnb!

Dear Mrs. LaValle, thank you for the 5 stars and your kind comments!! :) I enjoyed to guide you, Tsu (lol) and Lisa and I liked your travel style with no hurry, whatever time allow us to do!

“ Memorable Tokyo Experiences ”

Mitsuru’s attention to detail, flexibility, knowledge and amiable personality make him an outstanding guide. I wanted to see some of Tokyo’s highlights in one day, and Mitsuru exceeded my expectations. He navigated an unfamiliar city and showed me many different characteristics of Tokyo. One day became a lifetime of good memories.

Mitsuru:

Dear Brian, it was a pleasure to show you things found only in big cities!! Especially after 1 week of cultural exchange spent in a fish town of the country, I could imagine what things you’d want to see and what food you’d be excited to eat! ? Hope to see you again here or in DC!! Hugs from Tokyo, Mitsuru

“ Great guide and heart of a teacher ”

Mitsu was a very agreeable guide, anxious to make sure we saw what we were interested in seeing. We were going to Nikko one day and had a day in Tokyo by ourselves. He spent a lot of time making sure we were comfortable traveling by ourselves. Highly recommend!

Mitsuru:

Dear Carolyn, thank you for your great comment :) I am glad that you had wonderful time in our day tour of Tokyo! Yes, I was really worried about your trip to Nikko, since it is far and not so easy for first timers, couple of important transfers to be done on time and you had no access to internet!! ? Anyways, thank you very much and all the best!! :)

“ Express Tour of Tokyo ”

We arranged for Mitsuru to guide us in Tokyo due to limited time in the city and to make sure we made the most of our day. We was on a cruise and so only had 9 hours to see the key sights of the city. Mitsuru met us in Yokohama where our ship docked and guided us around using the Metro system and by walking where possible (which was our choice!). He had a prepaid card to use on the Metro system for us to use which meant that using the transport was easy during the day. He had produced a suggested tour but had options for us so that we could choose what to do. We covered the key sights as expected, had some great food in a teppanyaki restaurant and had fun at the Cat Cafe. Mitsuru was friendly, informative and punctual and a real joy to spend the day with. We had a great day in... read more

Mitsuru:

Dear David, I also had fun guiding you and Bozina! Definitely, cat cafe was really cool, especially we went there coincidentally on their dinner time! ? I wish we could have more time to show you some others nice spots of Tokyo, but our time was tight to take the risk to miss your cruise to Shanghai! I am glad that you saw the expected key spots and enjoyed the teppanyaki dinner! ? Please come to spend more time in Japan next time! Looking forward to meet you guys here or in UK!

“ Tokyo Crash Course: For Travelers not Tourists ;) ”

Before my brother and I travel someplace new we always try to do our homework. Despite our best efforts, we found ourselves making rookie mistakes basically upon arrival. Thankfully our past selves had the brilliant idea to hire Mitsuru. On the first real day of our trip, Mitsuru gave us a succinct crash course tour of Tokyo. We covered various places of interest as well as basic navigational tips that greatly benefitted us all the days that followed. The metro seemed daunting to an outsider but after Mitsuru thoroughly helped/showed us, every time we stepped on a train we felt like pros. The tip about various discounts for foreign passports saved us a lot on our Shinkansen tickets to Kyoto. In my opinion, Mitsuru went beyond what was expected when it came to helping us out. On top of ever... read more

Mitsuru:

Dear Rachele and Nick, thank you very much for writing me such a wonderful review!! I like to see how you and Nick are close, great siblings! :) It was awesome guiding you guys and I was so impressed with the excellent homework you did! But yeah, although we spend a lot of time studying things about our travel destinations, it is always not enough.. surely helps a lot, but in practice, things can be different. In the case of TOKYO, things change every single day, especially due to the Olympic Games 2020. Every time I walk around Shibuya Ward, scenarios are different, it’s unbelievable how fast we can change the city’s geography.. I also hire local guides when I travel abroad and this is so convenient these days.. Different cultures, systems, languages, values and point of views that enrich... read more

“ Outstanding Guide ”

We spent a full day with Mitsuru touring Tokyo. We also hired a van and driver for the tour which was excellent. Matsuru did a great job! He knows Tokyo extremely well, including the history, but more importantly he is clearly proud of and passionate about both Tokyo and Japan. He speaks great English which makes it all easy. I can’t recommend Mitsuru enough - as well as a great guide he’s a great guy!

Mitsuru:

G’day Mike! It was awesome to guide you, Irene, Jenny and Bob! What a multicultural group.. Also, private van service that you hired was soo convenient, especially during some rainy moments and to pick us up at the pier in the other side of Tokyo Bay! Yes, I love Tokyo and Japan from Hokkaido to Okinawa, but also NZL, Korea, USA and AUS, especially Queensland lol. I know this is reciprocal, since this was not the 1st time in Japan for you guys! Hope you can enjoy the rest of your stay, including RUGBY matches, bronze and the final at the massive International Stadium Yokohama. Thanks for everything and cheers Wallabies and All Blacks!! Please don’t hesitate to contact me in the near future! Hugs and all the best, Mitsuru Japan

“ 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.

Mitsuru:

DEAR Roberta & Hass, it was my PLEASURE to spent some days with you, wonderful couple and full of things to talk about! Thank you for trusting in my ideas, everything flowed perfectly and time flew! KYOTO, the ancient capital is always a great option when we have rainy days in Kanto area (Tokyo, Hakone, Fuji..). Thanks HASS for your book recommendation, very interesting and I hope to have time to read it some day, on the other hand, try Ikigai! ? ROBERTA, I heard form someone that you did a lot of shopping in Shinjuku, it was your day! ? Cheers and thanks a lot for everything! Really hope to see you again in the near future!

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.

Hey Stuart, we had two great days and ? Hagibis in between! Fortunately, we managed everything in the name of our safety! ? Thank you very much for your cooperation!

“ 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

Mitsuru:

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!

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

He was already during our preplanning very helpful.

Then he guided us sadly through the Tokyo Metrosystem to Waseda University, where I wanted register for a Congress.

“ A great intro to Tokyo ”

We enjoyed a customised tour of Tokyo with Mitsuru for 4 hours. He met us at our hotel and took us on our way. Mitsuru is knowledgeable and very polite. He provided us with a folder detailing a history of Japan including maps and and points of interest - this was very helpful and a great reference for us after we finished our tour. It was a great morning and it was a good introduction into Tokyo. If you are customising your tour be sure to give Mitsuru a good understanding of what you want to do as there is so much to see.

G’day James & George! Thanks for your comments! Lynne did a great job arranging this tour with me and comfort pack. Thanks to her we could spent a short, but wonderful time at a couple of historical sites. As you said, there are so much to see in Tokyo. Please allow you at least 3 days in Tokyo in the next year!

“ Wonderful Experience ”

My wife and I had a layover in Tokyo on our way back from Bali. We had about 10 hours which is not much time. Instead of just staying at the airport the whole time, we decided to try and see as much of Tokyo as we could. I contracted Mitsuru, who helped us plan down to minute a short tour of the city. He picked us up straight from the airport terminal and ran (sometimes literally) to a few landmarks. A few hours later we were back at the airport with some wonderful pictures and a better understanding of what Tokyo is all about. I highly recommend Mitsuru. Without him, there is no way we would have been able ton6see as much as we did in such a drastically short amount of time.

Mitsuru:

Hey Travis!! Oh yeah, we ran a couple of times to not miss a train I guess! Haha.. I only do that with people full of adrenaline like you & Angela! Layover from Narita is actually one of my favorite tours.. travelers from Southeast Asia have not so many expectations, it all up to me, I am on the control of the time etc and at the end, we finish seeing a lot of spots. But as I said, this is not for any visitor!! I really enjoyed doing my work with you guys. Thanks for adding me on your SNS and do hope you choose to spend you next holiday in Japan.. from Hokkaido to Okinawa, Japan is awaiting for you and Angela! Hugs from Tokyo, Mitsuru

“ Spectacular Days in Tokyo and Hakone ”

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.

Mitsuru:

Hey Miles, it was 3 spectacular days thanks to you guys!! I enjoyed your group and your easygoing personality and all the days we spent together both in Tokyo and Hakone. It was cool seeing Kate trying to talk with a girl in the train and that pic with the sumo wrestlers! Haha.. Although Mt. Fuji was hidden, the tour to the small town of Kanagawa is always nice. Hope to see you again here or in Florida. Thank you so much Miles and warm regards to all you guys!! Mitsuru

“ Best sightseeing in Tokyo ”

Mitsuru picked us at the cruiseship and started our special Tour for 2 persons by taxi , as we are not so good in walking. He showed us many interesting places, shops, Cafés, eateries and an artgalerie. We Bad two perfect days,

Mitsuru:

Hallo Eva & Thomas! It was a pleasure to have guide you guys for 2 days in some of the coolest places in Tokyo and after having visited many Japanese coastal cities. Tokyo is a big city and unique, especially when it comes to new trendies, modern art, fashion, architecture etc.. so, I think it was something that you and especially Thomas were looking for! Danke and hope to see you guys again!

We spent half a day with Mitsuru touring a few places in Tokyo. He was so attentive and helpful in making our requests happen, and such a nice and friendly person in general! I highly recommend Mitsuru

Mitsuru:

Dear Warren, thank you so much and it was a pleasure to be part of this layover. I think everyone should do the same instead of waiting for hours at Narita airport for the following flight. It was really an overview, so please if you have a chance, come again with your family to see and enjoy Tokyo and so many other beautiful places all over Japan! Take care, Mitsuru

Ha sido un verdadero placer conocer a Mitsuru tanto como guía y como persona. Gracias a él nuestra familia quedó enamorada de Tokio, y con ganas de repetir el viaje. Recomiendo sus servicios a cualquier persona que quiere conocer a Japón. Especialmente si viajas en familia. Gracias en particular a Mitsuru por si paciencia con los niños. Josef Bashe y Famila

Mitsuru:

Amigo Josef, guiar a su hermosa familia por estos 3 días fue un gran placer para mí! Sus niños son fantásticos, Lucia tiene una personalidad marcada aunque tan joven y ustedes españoles suizos son muy interesantes!! :-) Primavera, verano y otoño son meses muy concurridos en términos de turismo por Japón. Por lo tanto, gracias por confiar en mí desde el principio y por esta entusiástica revisión! ¡Espero verlos de nuevo en el futuro aquí en Tokio, Zurich o Madrid! Saludos, Mitsuru Japón

“ All day tour around Tokyo ”

What a great all day tour! Mitsuru met us promptly at our hotel at 10 am. We were off on an all day metro and walking tour of Tokyo. We went to both the east (Imperial Plaza) and west side (Shibuya Crossing) of Tokyo. Mitsuru did a great job at going to our pace and taking breaks when needed (we ended with close to 30,000 steps that day). We stopped for lunch at a ramen restaurant, so tasty! He did a great job at filling us in on some of the history and traditions of Tokyo. We had a great day and so glad we had Mitsuru to show us around. We would not hesitate to hire Mitsuru when we return to Tokyo again!

Mitsuru:

Dear Joline, thanks for your great review! Yes, we did a lot thanks to your physical condition, nice sunny day and interest to visit as many places as possible in Tokyo.. I hope you had spent nice days back to Disney Resort as well. Please come again in the future, maybe to experience Fuji-Q highland, Osaka Universal Studio or the Tohoku region to see Fuji apple or even the most beautiful cherry blossoms in Hirosaki city! On the other hand, hope to see blueberries in your region one day. Kind regards, Mitsuru

He would explain to me everything they would do during their time together, so I wouldn’t be worried about not being there with them. Recommend Mitsuru 100%!

Mitsuru:

Querida Sarah, we definitely spent such as wonderful days in Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Hakone, Kyoto and Nara!! Thank you so much for trusting on me, since I couldn’t make an itinerary before you book me.. between March and May, as we talked, I was guiding in different cities in Japan, from Okinawa to Aomori and Hakodate..Thanks to you, your parents & friends was able to see all those beautiful cherry blossoms, the Japanese culture, lifestyle and everything you had experience in the past.

Our tour with Mitsuru was excellent. A half day tour covering a lot of the east side of Tokyo - we went to areas and experienced things that we wouldn't have done or found on our own. He was really helpful with recommendations (especially how to find vegetarian restaurants), tips for the area around the hotel we were staying at and how to use the subway and local trains and he maintained the tour at a pace that worked for us. His suggestion that we cover Asakusa and Ueno on our own time was really good (it was very easy to do on our own). I can't recommend Mitsuru highly enough! Thank you for the tour it was fantastic!

“ Great introduction to Japan. ”

We had a wonderful day with Mitsuru in Tokyo. We wanted a guide for our first full day in Japan as all but one of our five member family had never been to Asia. Mitsuru was so nice and very knowledgeable about Japan and Tokyo. He took us on and off the subway to all corners of Tokyo. Most importantly, he showed us how to purchase tickets for the subways and walked us through the process of getting Bullet Train tickets as well. We were so well prepared after our day with Mitsuru that we navigated our way through Kyoto and Tokyo by ourselves for the next nine days nearly flawlessly. I truly believe that we would have floundered for days and wasted our precious time in Japan had we not had the opportunity to spend our first day with Mitsuru.

Mitsuru:

Hello Cynthia, thanks a lot and I am very glad to hear that you could transit between multiple Japanese cities stress free.. logistics is the vital part of any trip! At the end, we did more places than expected! Cheers and hope to see you, Toivo & kids again.. maybe here or in MA! :)

Conocimos Tokyo como los locales, conocimos los barrios mas emblematicos, conocimos los lugares donde van los locales y como hacen su vida diaria. Mitsuru es muy amable y siempre muy dispuesto a complacer nuestras peticiones. Siempre relajado y flexible con los tiempos y dispuesto a reajustar la programacion sobre la marcha. Para nosotros Mitsuru fue como un amigo de años que nos enseñó Tokyo. Gracias Mitsuru! Tienes 4 nuevos amigos aqui. Virgilio, Massiel, Ramon y Paola.

Mitsuru is a kind gentleman who is flexible and timely. I reflected for several days on what rating to give him but after using other triple light guides in Japan, I decided 3 stars was appropriate. He met us at our hotel and was flexible to start earlier than discussed as we had jetlag (this was very kind of him). The things that bothered me is that he did not seem to know much about Japanese history-the other guides brought pamphlets and explained things extensively. I had a clear itinerary in mind and when I relayed it to him, I felt that he didn't want to see it through. I also felt that he wasn't listening to me in that we wanted to see certain landmarks like the imperial palace-he suggested that we do this ourselves so we don't waste our time with him. However, many website... read more

Hi Divya, thanks for your feedback. I took it to heart to improve my future tours. I am glad to know that you got what you expected from my colleagues. As had explained, Tokyo is a new and modern capital, very different comparing to Kyoto’s old capital. Sometimes, city tour is not simple, sorry we couldn’t see everything you wanted in 2 half days tour, including under renovation TMGB, fortunately we compensated the time. On the 2nd half day tour, as Imperial Palace takes long time to be covered, I could only suggested Seimon Bridge of the Palace plus a couple of spots.. hard decision, but glad for your family to have opted for the Great Buddha in Kamakura city at the end!

Mitsuru has been such a responsive and all-out guide althroughout from the very first time we inquired up to the very end of our tour. Very professional, responded at once to every question and fetched us at our AirBnB place exactly on time and even taught us how to figure out our rides and the ticket system on the trains.

Mitsuru:

Dear Mae & family, sorry for late feedback! Many thanks for your comments.. You guys are so easy going! It was a pleasure to have guided you, Iñigo and your relatives from the US / Philippines who did great, taking their age in consideration.. I was glad to see them enjoying super fresh sushi at Tsukiji Market and you having a delicious sake at Golden Gay! Most of all, I was pretty impressed with your fluency in English, pretty much like native speakers! I hope you had spent great moments in Kyoto / Kansai area as well. Please come again to Japan.. still many beautiful places to be visited such as Nikko, Mt. Fuji, Kamakura, Okinawa etc.

“ Two Fun Days in Tokyo ”

We had so much fun with Mitsuru going to all the “must see” Tokyo locations on our list! There is no way we could have seen everything we saw on our own as I am certain it would have taken us twice as long just trying to navigate the metro and rail lines. Mitsuru is knowledgeable, kind, respectful, curious, punctual, funny, and communicates very well. He went out of his way to find stores that carried the items we wanted, carried packages for us, brought an umbrella and extra phone battery just in case, and kept us on schedule so we could see everything we wanted. I wish we could take him to Kyoto with us! Mitsuru started out as our private guide but by the end of our two days together, We now consider him our friend! You can’t go wrong with Mitsuru...I highly reccomend him! read more

Mitsuru:

Dear Dana & Tim, wow.. I don’t know what to say after this wonderful review, no words to thank you guys and express my happiness! It’d awesome to go down to Kyoto if I could go! I am sure you enjoyed this traditional and beautiful former capital, so much to see there.. and thanks a lot for all gifts! More and more, I want to visit the beautiful nature of the USA, including middle West! Please take care and I do hope to see you guys again in the near future, cheers!!

Mitsuru knows exactly how to adapt the customer needs and is very flexible. Thanks Mitsuru and hope having the opportunity to come again to Tokyo and having you as a local guide again.

We really enjoyed our three days with Mitsuru. His proposed agenda took in a great selection of the main tourist "must see" items, as well as some off-beat and quirky things, exactly in line with our pre-meet preferences. His English is excellent and his manner is easy going and engaging, yet never intrusive. We were very glad we booked with Mitsuru, as we would never have covered all the destination points in the same timeframe, nor understood them in the way we are able to with him Would recommend his guiding for anyone with just a few days in Tokyo and an appetite to discover the "best of" what the city has to offer Thanks again Jon & Brenda

We really enjoyed our two days in Tokyo with Mitsuru. To begin with.....prior to arrival, I loved how we communicated through the TripleLights website.

He asked lots of questions about us to try to learn about my husband and me before we met and what we would be interested in. That said, we gave MItsuru a list of things that we wanted to try knock out in our two days with him. Mitsuru is very fast in moving about the city and we loved that.

I was also surprised to see your physical condition! I thought we would miss the opening ceremony in Nihombashi at our 2nd day, but we got in time! I hope our tour around Hibiya, Chuo-dori and Omotesando area have gave you many ideas / inspiration for your business. And thank you for the happy hour at your place, cheers!!

I must say if you come to Japan first time and don't know where to go. To hire a guide like Mitsuru is the best choice. Mitsuru is very good guide and warm-hearted as well. He can arrange some places that you can see the better city view. He can recommend some special food which might not pop on your guiding book. He even carried my bags while walking. And he helped me to ask things I wanted to buy in Japanese. At the end of trip, he sent me back to my hotel. The back time didn't count in our hiring time! Very good experience with Mitsuru.

Mitsuru was very knowledgeable, courteous, attentive to all of our needs and requirements, had a great sense of humour; we felt like we'd known him for years! even after our tour was done he recommended some great places and wrote it down so we didn't have any trouble. No better way than to experience Tokyo. if you're reading this no need to go further. Book Mitsuru i assure you you wont be disappointing.

G’day Simon, I have no words to express my gladness to have met you guys! You and Maha are so easy going and funny couple.. whenever I meet an Aussie, it’s always very good, cause your life style reminds me the great time that I spent in OZ..

“ Quick one and day half tour ”

Apart from fitting into my demanding and changing wants of covering many areas in just 1 ½ days, Mitsuru did a great job as a tour guide. Right when I landed in Haneda, he had a file ready for me with my hotel information and train map. When I left from the hotel (even though he was not responsible for me that day), he made sure that I have safely reached airport. Also made me comfortable riding the complex maze of subways in Tokyo of my own in just one day. Walked 67,000 with him (fitbit). Highly recommended from my experiences. Saved me money providing useful tips (Paid Vs free views of Tokyo, 5-20X cheaper transport to airport etc which are just hard to know without being a local). Page will crash if I list down what places I visited.

Mitsuru:

Hey Pritam, I really appreciate your review! Definitely, we visited so many places in such as short time thanks to your physical condition even under 34C degrees!! Fortunately, the time was enough to take the great pics you wished. Hope the few I took are not bad! I am sure those ones you have clicked got a state of art! Thanks for your tips on photography as well. Next time you come to Japan, I would be glad to guide you around Kamakura city (former Japanese capital) and Enoshima beaches (1 hour and half southwest of Tokyo). Cheers!

Tour with Mitsuru was a great decision! He is very easygoing, punctual and well traveled, so along the tour we had lots of places in common to be compared with Tokyo’s districts. It was my first time in Japan, being Tokyo the very first destination. Without him, I would probably get lost and spend much time with details on the road, specially with the excellent, but complex transportation system! Also thank you for taking me to that nice restaurant (all food was delicious), for your tips and for nice time we spent around this fantastic city!

Many thanks Paulo for the review!! Yes, people who live or work in Tokyo use mainly these hundreds subway stations, monorail, other thousands of local stations in the Metropolitan area.. specially Shinjuku district is hard for first timers!

We traveled to various neighborhoods where Mitsuru helped us get oriented, instructed us on how to use public transportation and services, and even helped us book one of the best eating experiences for my birthday. We were welcomed as honored guests because of his wonderful reputation. He has excellent English and an infectiously positive attitude. Without him, it would have taken us many days to get our bearings and we wouldn’t have seen nearly as many amazing things.

Dear Yuliya, you and Dmitry are a wonderful couple and it was an unforgettable day of April! You are very easygoing and open minded, so I could fell comfortable to talk and show you around. Also since we are not native English speaker, it was easier for me to understand your needs. Public transportation in Tky, specially subway is not that hard to use as long you have time to be familiar with stations’s name, lines, destinations and exits!

“ Great! Off the main road. So many cool spots. ”

This was great. Mitsuru took me to places I couldn’t find myself. He’s done his research and has spent time finding the best spots not just the most famous spots. We went to the fish market and had the most amazing freshest sushi and sashimi ever from a tiny restaurant tucked between two other shops. I can not believe it how good it was. I loved all the bustling side alleys and streets and products for sale and to try! Massive contrast to Akihabara. But even in Akihabara, we didn’t just go to the main electronics shops on the main road we went to the smaller lesser know (but still massive) shops in the sides/back streets. Not to mention more amazing food from a tiny 10 seater ramen restaurant hidden away in a side street. Thanks!

Mitsuru:

Hello Ashley, thank you for your kind review! You just chose the right tour for that and we just found the things you were looking for.. it was so nice to guide you, you are open minded, so we had fun! Yeah, space is pretty valuable in Tokyo, so alley ways are common! I am glad the tour matched exactly to your needs. Thanks a lot and hope to see you again!
