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 guided for 149 days (455 guests) in 2018 and 170 days (501 guests) in 2019.
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 !
Free pick-up service to your hotel is only in Tokyo metropolitan area, in 23 wards. For other places, the extra charge will be added depending on the distance and the time necessary.
The trip was perfect, everything was on time and ran smoothly ! He is very pleasant and fun to be around.. highly highly recommended 10/10!
Tesca-san, Thank you very much for your review. I hope you enjoyed the tour even though we couldn't see Mt. Fuji. I was a little bit surprised that you and your husband ate a lot. Ha ha ha. Have a good day in Japan. Best Regards, Hideaki Murayama
My husband and I just returned from our trip to Japan and started off our trip with a full day highlights tour of Tokyo. Hideaki was an amazing guide - he helped me plan our full day itinerary and customize it to our interests, took us to a wonderful lunch spot, and helped us navigate the train/metro system which made moving through the day very easy. He was warm, inviting, answered all of our questions throughout the day, was extremely knowledgeable about all the places we visited, and helped us purchase metro passes for the remainder of our time in Tokyo. I'd highly recommend booking a tour with Hideaki to maximize your time in Tokyo. It was such a wonderful start to our trip. Thank you again, Hideaki!
Kelli-san, Thank you very much for your review. I'm very glad to know that you were satisfied with the tour. I also enjoyed chatting with you and your husband. Best Regards, Hideaki Murayama
Had a long layover - and Hideaki was there early to meet me, took me on the train to Narita where we went or the museum, a tea ceremony, the temple and gardens. Lots of information about the local history, friendly interaction and a delicious lunch
Helen-san, Thank you very much for your review. Fortunately, we could experience a tea ceremony. Personally, I think Naritasan Shinshoji temple is the best temple in Tokyo area, and we can easily enjoy it during a layover. Best Regards, Hideaki Murayama
Mr. Hideaki was our guide in Tokyo for two days. It was a wonderful and knowledgeable experience. He went above and beyond to make sure that we saw all the highlights of Tokyo and gave us the historical background. He helped us navigate the subway system, and with buying our tickets to Nikko, Fuji and Hakone. Traveling with 3 young kids is not always easy, and he was very helpful and patient with our kids, very willing to detour or take a break as needed. If you want a guide for Tokyo I would highly recommend Mr. Hideaki.
Martin-san Thank you very much for your review. Your family is super good!! As I said during the tour, your family reminded me of my young days. When my daughter was a kid like your daughter, my family was like yours. I often carried my daughter on my shoulders. So, I enjoyed the time with your family so much. Have a nice trip in Japan!! Best Regards, Hideaki Murayama
