I’m Hideaki. Just call me “Mura” or “Mura-san”. “San” means “Mr.” or "Ms." in Japanese. I have a national tour guide license in English. I have experiences to live in the following cities on business.
- Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) Four years
- Nantong (China) One and half years,
- Jakarta (Indonesia) One and half years
- Baton Rouge (Louisiana, USA) Two years.
My hobbies are playing golf, listening classical music and watching football.
My basic policy as a tour guide is to entertain my guests with my best hospitality. I really like to see my guests smiling. I myself also enjoy chatting with my guest about not only a general explanation about Japanese culture and history but everything based on my experiences and hobbies.
Let’s enjoy a wonderful tour in Japan !

My family and I had a very good tour of Tokyo with Hideaki. We were able to do many things in one day and felt like we were able to accomplish a lot during such a short time thanks to Hideaki showing us around. I definitely recommend him to others.
Thank you very much for your review, Sarah-san. We were very lucky that we could see Mt. Fuji from Tokyo Metropolitan Government building. I still remember your mother's smile when we visited Kusunoki Masashige statue. Thank you very much again.
Pleasant guide. Seemed knowledgeable about tokyo.
Timothy-san, Thank you very much. I also enjoyed chatting with you and your family. I was relieved that we could finally see the full-view of Mt. Fuji at the last viewing spot. Please tell your daughter that I still keep the Origami Mt. Fuji. Thank you !! Hideaki Murayama
Hideaki or we always call him as "Mura san". He is very nice person, he is very detailed and considerate. He responded to my email quickly, making offer of travel proposal with detail. He was also very helpful to us as my wife missed her wallet at the mall. We greatly enjoyed the 1 day excursion tour enjoy the beauty of fuji mountain from hakone, and lake ashi with Mura san. He also gave us basic information how to get to osakadan and interesting locations that we can visit in osaka and kyoto. He is an interesting guys and with lots of travel experience understands travellers needa. We highly recommend Mura san as your tour guide in Tokyo !!.
Bonggal-san, thank you very much and I also enjoyed Hakone tour with you and your family. I was really a lucky day, isn’t it? We were able to find your wife’s wallet easily and see beautiful Mt. Fuji. Double lucky!! Chatting with you reminded me of my poor Bahasa Indonesia, lah. Thank you very much. Hideaki Murayama
It was a pleasure to be guided by Mura San for 2 days on our trip to Tokyo. He tried to get information on all that we happened to mention. He was not hurried and was good for our family of 5 , from 10yrs to 74yrs. He gave us a good brief before reaching our destination so we had a basic idea even before arriving. He was a very accommodating and helpful guide. We returned today from Japan . It was a pleasure to be guided by him.Thanks to him for making us understand Tokyo better . All my family members have the same feedback for him.
Thank you very much, Shruti-san. I also had a good time with you and your family. Thanks to you, I could have some new experiences, Pokemon, Uber and Dosa. Especially, it was my first time to eat Dosa and it tastes really good. Thank you very much again. Hideaki Murayama
Thank you Mr. Hideaki! The best and caring guide especially I have 2 elders that just cant cope walking so long and Mr. Hideaki is a patient guide who kept looking and concern for their needs. We love the birthday candles that you have brought for my dad's birthday and bringing us to the halal restaurant in Ginza. Overall you are the best and will recommend our friends to use you when going to Japan. So many beautiful places that you have brought to us and we should book you more days in future. Love from Siti and the rest of the family!
Siti-san, Thank you very much and I also enjoyed so much visiting Narukawa Museum and Gotemba Outlet with you and your family. I’m very glad that we could see beautiful scenery of Lake Ashi and Mt. Fuji. This tour is one of my best memory! Hoping to see you again. Hideaki Murayama
