KON-NICHI-WA (Hello) I’m Mitsuru Mark Sakai.
I’m a National Government Licensed Tour Guide Interpreter.
I was born in Hokkaido, the north part of Japan.
I moved to Seattle, USA when I was just five. It was also when I started to learn English, though it was kid English,
I came back to Japan when I was eleven and I experienced difficulties adjusting to new circumstances.
It forced me to notice the differences and similarities that lay between the two countries.
Definitely these experiences became my precious back bone to be a tour guide still today.

My favorite subject is Japanese history especially regarding Shinto, Buddhism and samurai-culture.
Also I love great architectures and gardens.
But my most favorite thing to do above all is to make your trip ever enjoyable.
I’d like to make you feel relaxed, safe and secured.

I wish I could see you someday.
Thank you.

“ Fantastic introduction to Tokyo ”

This was my family’s first visit to Tokyo and we realized we needed a guide to experience the city. Mark responded promptly to our inquiry, took time to understand our group and what we wanted to see, and put together a tour that was tailored specifically for us. The tour was informative and enjoyable, and Mark was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with. I was amazed how much we packed into 8 hours and didn’t once feel rushed. Highly recommend.


Thank you so much for your rating me so high. But I wasn't expecting at all such a favorable remarks It was my great pleasure to show you my favorite Tokyo, and I myself enjoyed a lot. I hope you are enjoying rest of your stay. Please have great days. Best Regards. Mark

“ Fun way to see tokyo! ”

Was such a interesting and fun tour we had with Mitsuru. We got to see the popular sights of Tokyo with ease due to Mutsurus huge knowledge of the city. Also very formative tour as Mitsuru has heaps of knowlege, so ask a lot of questions as he will be able to answer them!


Thank you so much for your kind comment. I'm happy to hear again you have enjoyed my tour. But probably I'm the one who enjoyed the most, especially with charming couple like you. I hope you enjoy Japan the rest of the stays from my heart and I hope I can see you some time in the future again. Best Regards., Mark.
