About

Welcome to Japan!! ¡Bienvenidos a Japón! Bem vindos ao Japão!

Konnichiwa, welcome to JAPAN!! My name is MITSURU and I am a tour guide for foreign visitors, especially in TOKYO and Kanto region (Hakone / Mt. Fuji view, Kamakura, Yokohama etc), eventually Kansai region (Osaka, Kyoto, Nara) and Central Japan (Nakasendo trail, Matsumoto, Takayama, Shirakawa-go, Kanazawa), Okinawa..

Japan is a long country and has so many beautiful places to be visited! There are 47 prefectures or provinces, from Hokkaido in the north (near Siberia, Russia) to subtropical Okinawa (my ancestors land) near Taiwan.

I am a Japanese national, born in Brazil, lived in Australia and a couple of Latin American countries.
I love traveling, hiking, ride a bicycle, meeting people from all over the world, 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 tourism, entertainment, business, shopping and gastronomy. Since 2013, when Tokyo was chosen to host 2020 Olympic Games, this metropolis is becoming even better.

I'd love to guide you based on 3e: entertainment, education 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 seeing you in JAPAN!!
Thank you for reading my introduction.
Arigatou gozaimasu.

* If you have personal requests or special places to visit in JAPAN, please send me a message.
** In my video introduction, I say that I am a guide and a driver. At the moment I work only as guide in Tokyo and Japan’s main touristic cities.

MITSURU JAPAN

_____________________________________________________________________

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

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

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!

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!

“ 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!!!

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.
