I learned a lot about the history and culture of Kamakura. Mark explained all about the different shrines and the meanings. It made the experience of visiting the temples so much easier.
Thank you so much for giving me the 5-stars. Due to the Covid-19, there were few restrictions we had to followed, however I hope you enjoyed my tour and had a good time. Arigato-gozaimasita.
We only had one day to tour in Tokyo and Mitsuru did a great job getting us to the type of sites we wanted to see. He provided us with a list of top sites and and found our interests and set a custom tour to show us the most he could . Even with the closure of sites due to the Corona virus, with his knowledge of the city he was easily able to make suggestions at the last second for other sites. Mitsuru speaks very good English and can move around the city with ease due to his knowledge of the subways. He also has a good sense of humor and knowledge of Japanese history and religion. Great day Mitsuru! Thank you!
Thank you very much for sending such a wonderful review of mine. Yes it was a kind of a day probably I would remember for years. Since all the museaums were closed and all the indoor activities had been canceled due to Corona-virus, what made worse was the misty rainy day that we couldn't enjoy the view of Tokyo from any observatory deck, our option was very limited. I'd really like to thank you for your big heart and give me a chance to do my architecture-tour which I was planning to perform someday. I hope I can see you again some day.
I cannot day enough good things about our tour with Mitsuru (“Mark”). My wife and I have never visited Japan and relied on Mark to pick our schedule. He did and the tour was phenomenal. He gave us great information both historically and culturally. Also, some people may feel uneasy about what it’s like to spend a day with someone they’ve never met. Rest assured, Mark is great company! He’s friendly and the conversations were fun. He made sure we had interest in everything we were about to see, and also gave us great tips about how to spend the remainder of our trip. We had our tour with Mark on day 1 of our trip, and I highly recommend you do the same- he will give you great tips about other cool things to see.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. And also I'm sorry for my late response to it. I'm so happy to hear again you enjoyed my tour. It was a great ICHIGO ICHIE. Happy Anniverary ! I hope I can see you again .
Mitsuru was a wonderful guide. We are a group of 8 older persons and he was a perfect guide for us His English is perfect, he is knowledgeable and provided us with outs of new information He was flexible to accommodate the needs of everyone in the group. I would highly recommend you use Mitsuri
What a wonderful time I had with you all! I was able to see all of you smiling which encouraged me a lot. Telling the truth, I was a bit worried about your legs that someone might got really tired. But I was completely wrong. It was my great pleasure to have a chance to attend a such a wonderful people. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your journey.
Six of us had Mr Mitsuru guide us in Kamakura. It was a lovely day. We used trains and walked a lot. He managed to please us all with visits to examples of various temples. Each one different and each offering something different. He was also funny and informative. Thank you Mack.
HI Roline. Thank you so much for your kind review. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. However I regret I should have slow down a bit and provide more time for recess. I hope I can see you again some time in future. Best Regards Mark.
Mark was a great guide very knowledgeable and tailored the 2 day program to our interests. Extremely professional thank you mark
What a great pleasure I had spending 2 days with you! I'm happy to hear you liked my tour. Thank you so much for giving wonderful days and I hope some day we can get together again. Mark
Mitsuru (Mark) took my wife and I to see Nikko. I hired a guide as I knew there would be multiple trains to catch, long distances to travel and walk, and I didn't want to stress over navigating train stations and locations. Mitsuru was perfect for us, personable, happy, informative, and thoughtful. He knew the area very well and kept us well informed on everything we saw, and with cultural traditions and practices. His English was excellent and we had a very fun trip with him. He even led us to a good set of restaurants to choose from when he dropped us off near our hotel. We would definitely hire him again if we return to Tokyo, he was not just a guide, he became a good friend that can be relied upon.
Thank you very much for the such a wonderful review. I have done many ICHIGO-ICHIE before as a guide, but the time I have spent with you is definitely one of the most precious one. I hope someday in near future, we can get together again. ARIGATO. Mark.
My daughter and I spent an 8-hour day tour to Kamakura from Tokyo. Mitsuru (Mark) was very punctual and he was already waiting for us at our designated meeting time at our hotel lobby. He led us to the subway station and then change to the train to Kamakura. Our day turned out to be sunny and warm and we hit all the highlights that Mitsuru has outlined for us. Because we were moving around efficiently, he was able to include an extra highlight in our tour. His English was very good. I have already given his card to my sister-in-law who may be thinking of visiting Tokyo in the near future.
Thank you so much for your so kind review. I was so happy myself too that I was able to show you some extra. But let me make some correction. I'm not punctual at all. I'm rather a lazy guide. I hope you're having great days. See you some time again.
Mitsuru/Mark is an excellent guide. He listened to what we were interested in, got us sorted with metro cards for our kids (worth his help for that alone!), taught us how to easily use the metro, and put a great tour plan together for us. He is full of knowledge about the history and significance of the places he showed us, and he set us up with ideas and options for our other days in Tokyo. He is also very kind and friendly. I highly recommend!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I hope you're enjoying the rest of the stays. You have great sons. Their ages are about the same as mine when I left US . They remind me of my good friends then. Thank you!
He always tries to make us feel comfortable and I am completely comfortable with him. Planning to go to Japan again and for sure with book for him Thanks Mark Mitsuru Diane from USA
Thank you so much for the great review. It really encourage me. I was worried about some of you might have got tired since we walked a lot. Please visit Japan again. Next time Autumn. Best Regards Mark (Mitsuru)
Very pleased with our friendly guide Mitsuru who escorted our guests around Tokyo for a flexible sightseeing day. He was very helpful and patient with the needs of our group (travelling with intellectual disabilities), we didn't feel rushed and could enjoy our day comfortably. Highly recommend.
Kathleen-san. Thank you so much for sending TL such a wonderful review. It was my great pleasure to share time with them. They are really great people and I have to appreciate them since I learned many things from them. You mentioned the words "intellectual disabilities", but I don't think so at all. I certainly had a good time with them. Best Regards Mark (Mitsuru)
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
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.
We were able to see some very interesting things that aren’t in guidebooks. Fun day!
Thank you so much for your kind review. You are wonderful people! A great family! I'm sure you're going to have wonderful time from now on here in Japan. You deserve it. Best Regards. Mark
