About

Hello!
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 !

“ 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.

Hideaki:

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

Hideaki:

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

“ Beyond our expectations ”

We new we had a short day and wanted to experience Tokyo from a cultural viewpoint. He was able to accomplish that by using the subway to get to all corners of Tokyo . We visited 5 or 6 sites, walked a lot and got the feeling of Tokyo that we wanted. His recommendation for a "Tokyo" lunch fit right in. Highly recommend him to others

Hideaki:

Dick-san. Thank you very much for your review. We walked nearly 20,000 steps in one day with only lunch break! How energetic you and your wife are! I’m glad that you like Okonomiyaki. It’s my favorite food, too. I also shared a pleasant time with you and your wife. Hideaki Murayama

“ hassle free and laid back trip to Mt. Fuji ”

We thought of getting a guide because we have varying ages in our family , I have two older children and two much younger ones. If we joined a tour group we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the places at our own pace. Mr. Murayama was at our hotel very early to take us to the bus terminal, he even reserved our bus tickets ahead of time which was thoughtful. We enjoyed our hassle free trip to Fuji because of him. My children were free to stay longer at the sights if they wanted to and we were able to choose the places we wanted to see. This was our first time in Tokyo so he was also very kind in providing some information for us for the rest of our stay. Overall, he was a very pleasant and kind man. Thank you Murayama:-)

Hideaki:

Thank you very much for your review, Arlene-san. We were so lucky that day that the sky is so clear and we were able to enjoy a full view of Mt. Fuji with a snow cap. As your family is so nice, I also shared a pleasant time. Hideaki Murayama

“ Tour of Tokyo ”

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.

Hideaki:

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.
