Jun Mizutani is a product of the developments of the Japanese Table Tennis Association. At such a young age, he has been sent by the Japanese Team to train and participate in league competitions in Europe. Also, he was trusted by the association to participate in a variety of world competitions, just to accumulate experience. 

With those opportunities, expectations were high on Mizutani, and he was able to meet them. At the start of 2007, he was ranked outside of the top 100. Before the year ended, he was already ranked in the 32nd. 

Jun Mizutani is one player with a very big talent in table tennis. His sense of the sport can be levelled with Ma Lin. If he could strengthen his "third-shot-kill" and be able to play within the Chinese environment for two years, then his career is believed to flourish even more. 

At the age 14, Jun Mizutani became the youngest champion in the history of Japan after he clinched the Junior Men's Singles title in the 2003 Japanese National Table Tennis General Assembly. Mizutani also has won the World Junior Championships Singles title thrice. 

His first major award in the men's division was in the 2006 Japanese National Championships where he won the Men's Singles title. He was once again labelled as the youngest Japanese national champion in history. 

In the international circuit, Jun Mizutani achieved his first World Tour title in 2009 Korea Open, beating the Chinese player Hao Shuai in the finals. 

Mizutani has been to three big world competitions: Olympics, World Championships, and World Cup. However, he still needs to achieve a medal from those competitions. 

According to Chinese Team's head coach, Liu Guoliang said that, Mizutani's special feature is his good sense of the sport but his speed is not fast enough. 

In October 14, 2014, Jun Mizutani revealed that he is already married and is now a father of a cute baby girl. The Japanese player tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend in November of 2013.
