About

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..)

This is Mitsuru, I work as tour guide in Tokyo. I am a Japanese national, but I was born and raised in Brazil, lived in Australia for over 1 year and I love traveling, hiking, ride a bicycle, meet different people, oh ice cream too!!

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 5 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 durante 1 año 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 5 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 por 1 ano 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!

“ Tokyo como un local! ”

Nuestra experiencia con Mitsuru fue excelente! Eramos 4 personas con solo 2 dias para conocer Tokyo. Mitsuru nos preparo la agenda con meses de anticipación. 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:

Estimado Virgilio y amigos, sólo puedo decir que mi experiencia con dominicanos fue chulissima! Jeje.. me gusto haber guiado a ustedes en español.. que bueno que se sintieron como un local!! A pesar de tantas diferencias culturales, existen ciertos rasgos personales que son simplemente universales e independientes de lengua, conocimiento, etc. Usted, Massiel, Ramon y Paola fueron increíbles durante nuestros 2 días completos! Gracias por haberme contado diversos hechos sobre la vida en la República Dominicana también! Amigos, nos vemos un día en Santo Domingo o quién sabe en Punta Cana! Muchas gracias y felicidades! :-)

“ A perfect day... ”

We had such a special day. Everything was perfect. From the set up, communication and planning through to day itself where we managed to pack in so much. It was great to see and hear about each place and understand the history, background and stories. Mitsuru provided great overview, maps and guidance making everything easy and effortless. Mitsuru is a gentleman and we very much recommend him to everyone. Thank you.

Mitsuru:

Dear Matt & Louise, thanks a lot for your kind review! No Matt, if there is a gentleman.. definitely it's you! Not to mention you guys had attended Fuji Marathon in the previous day :-) We covered a lot thanks to your collaboration! It was so excited day and the Kimono photo session almost was going away!! By the way, I have seem all the pics and just can say you guys did great job! Well my friends, thanks again, it was a great pleasure to have met you!! Please, come to Japan again to visit other areas! See you guys, cheers!!

“ visitamos kioto, monti fugi, tokio, yokohama, etc ”

Mitsuro foi muito pontual, responsável, organizou tudo aproveitando muito bem o tempo, conhecemos lugares maravilhosos o que seria impossível sem o guia, pois ficamos em Tokyo visitando muitos lugares, muitas linhas de metro, trens e ficaríamos desorientados, perdidos sem a orientação do guia. Para Brasileiros perfeito pois domina o Português, recomendo portando Mitsuro

Mitsuru:

Narita, Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Kamakura, Enoshima Island, Yokohama, Kyoto, Narita.. wow, we did a lot!! Ou devo dizer uai soh!! Haha.. Foi tudo baum demais da conta, primeira vez a guiar mineiros.. muito obrigado e foi um grande prazer ter guiado ocês em português! Espero que tudo tenha corrido bem nas outras paradas pela Asia! Cuidem-se e nos vemos um dia na terrinha e bora comer uma vaca atolada ou um feijão tropeiro! Comida mineira é tudo de baum!! Grande abs a todos!!

“ 1 day in Tokyo ”

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

Mitsuru:

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! Also I could learn a lot from Mr. Vish about India's history, culture and movies! Thank you guys and regards.

“ Hreat half day visit with Mitsuru (family of four) ”

We spent half a day with Mitsuru visiting Tokyo and had a great time. Mitsuru arrived at our hotel on time and came ready with a proposed itinerary. We changed the itinerary throughout the day to adapt for our two daughters (age 5 and 7) and Mitsuru had good recommendations. Mitsuru was knowledgeable of the different sites and neighborhoods we visited. He contributed information as we were walking very naturally, not trying to share every single thing fact about a site or neighborhood. He also helped us get organized for our Tokyo and Kyoto (incl. helping us buy train tickets to go to Kyoto) which we were thankful for. Finally, our daughters loved him as he kept playing with them throughout the day which is always a big plus for us. We'll recommend Mitsuru tonfriends and family... read more

Mitsuru:

Hi Kote, thank you very much for your kind comments!! Could not be different.. your girls are so talkative and lovely.. Miri and Mehiti were specially so cute at Kawaii Monster Cafe watching Japanese cosplay show! :-) I got so glad to have met you guys and I just wished you could have more fun with them at your next destination. So, my Kyoto colleague sent me a couple of recommendations, so hopefully you had enjoyed the charming city of Kyoto! Thank you and see you again in Tokyo or in California one day!!
