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 !

“ A day in Tokyo ”

We booked a tour with Hideaki during our first day in Tokyo to get oriented and see a number of sites that were located in different parts of the city. That proved to be a very good decision. Hideaki put together an itinerary based on our interests and helped us feel very comfortable even on our first full day in a huge new city. We covered a lot in eight hours and did not feel rushed at all. The restaurant choice for lunch was also great - excellent quality and value. I strongly recommend Hideaki as a guide to anyone who is new to Tokyo and needs a little help navigating the city.


Anna-san. Thank you very much for your review. I hope you enjoyed the Tokyo tour. I also had a good time chatting with you and your husband. We were very lucky to be able to see full-bloom cherry blossoms in Ueno Park. They were amazing and awesome!! Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

“ Fantastic trip ”

Mr Murayama was an excellent guide. Soon after I booked the tour he contacted me to provide a spreadsheet with the estimated costs of the trip and was in frequent contact to arrange the meetup at my hotel etc. He was very well organised, friendly and knowledgable about Nikko and its points of interest and even gave me a few sightseeing tips for my few remaining days in Tokyo. It was a great day out, I wholeheartedly recommend him as a guide.


Matthew, Thank you very much for your review. I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed the Nikko tour. I also had a good time talking with you. I think you have already gone back to UK. Hoping everything is fine with you. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

“ Very nice full day in Tokyo ”

Hideaki was prompt, very organized, and accommodating to all of our requests. I highly recommend. Very informative for adults and couples. Our family had a grand time.


Jon. Thank you very much for your review. I also had a good time with you and your family. Please enjoy a Sushi party in your house as you have a good knives and Sushi workshop diploma. Have a good stay in Japan! Hideaki Murayama

“ Fantastic guide ”

Hideaki gave us a great look at parts of Tokyo we would have never found. He will individually plan the day for you, and will instruct you on how to navigate the subway. We found him knowledgeable, considerate and responsive to our needs. He even helped us plan and book our Shinkansen tickets for the following day.


Thank you very much for your review, David. I also had a very good time walking and chatting with you. I hope you enjoy skiing now. Hideaki Murayama.

“ Taking on Narita Airport and Tokyo on the first trip to Jspan ”

Mura-san is very knowledgeable and efficient. He made contacts with the Muslim community in the area we are staying to make us feel welcome in Japan. We visited a small prayer place there too. He insisted to come all the way to Narita to ensure that we are well taken care off the moment we land. He helped find the Klook booth to exchange our vouchers, get bus tickets and even accompanied us to find our apartment. He gave good advice on how to get around Tokyo using public transportation. He even recce the way to Disneyland land with us. Mura-san gave a very warm and personalised service to us. First trip to such a huge metropolitan like Tokyo can be very daunting and confusing but thanks to Mura-san we have been making trips around Tokyo on our own taking the subway, trains and public... read more


Thank you very much for your review, Anita-san. I’m very glad to know that you became confident about going around Tokyo. Yes, the public transportation system in Tokyo is very confusing not only for visitors, but for local people as well. Please enjoy your stay in Japan. Hideaki Murayama
