About Tour Guide Mitsuru(mark) S.

KON-NICHI-WA (Hello) I’m Mitsuru (Mark) Sakai .

I was born in Hokkaido, the north part of Japan.

I moved to Seattle, USA when I was five and the name MARK was given by my classroom teacher then. It was also when I started to learn English, though it was a kid English, still I may using.

I came back to Japan when I was eleven and I experienced difficulties adjusting to new circumstances.

It was tough one.

Though, It forced me to notice the differences and similarities 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 Shintoism, Buddhism and samurai-culture.

Also, since I studied architecture in university, I' m happy to introduce you our unique buildings and structures on the way.

However, my most favorite thing 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 soon..

Thank you.

Mitsuru Mark Sakai.

National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter.

Important

A Magnificent day with Mark

We had the most wonderful day with Mark filled with knowledge, support and fun. He picked us up from our hotel, helped us to navigate the subway and train system and then showed us some of the most amazing places. Marks knowledge of both modern and traditional Japanese culture was fantastic, he answered all of our questions and made all the things we wanted to do possible. Mark was extremely kind and supported us when we had lost a JR Pass connecting us to those who could help. He not only guided us through many beautiful places is Tokyo but supported us with our next stops. Mark was fun to hang out with and we loved getting to know him. He was one of highlights in Tokyo and we are extremely grateful to have spent the day with him.

Thank you so much for the kind words.. It was my great pleasure to spend precious hours with you You are a such a wonderful couple. I’m sure you’re going to discover more of Japan in the days ahead. But please don’t get too excited and take care of yourself. I’m looking forward to seeing you again and your new family member.

Tokyo Tour

We asked Mark for an authentic tour off the beaten track for our family with two young adults and had a great day. Mark is very friendly and explained the background behind the places we visited and answered any questions we had about Japanese customs and culture. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. And also thank you so much for the precious time I spent with you. I really enjoyed myself and learnt so many things about your country. I believe you're still in Japan. Please take care of yourself and enjoy the rest of the stay.

Tokyo a la carte

Mark is a great guide. Instead of the "official" tour, we asked him to show us 2 or 3 major sites plus some other sites that are not well known. We saw a LOT in just one day - Asakusa, Tokyo SkyTree, Shibuya Crossing, plus a beautiful out of the way garden and also a Shintu ceremony in the afternoon. Mark is very knowledgeable and flexible, so is able to tailor a tour to whatever interests you have.

Thank you so much for the great review. Also for my wonderful time spending with you. I wondered how did you go at Tsukiji on next few days. Nxt time please visit Kabuki theater if you have any chance to come back again. Merry Christmas.
