In the same year, he joined the Ministry of Finance. He served overseas at the Embassy of Japan in Washington, D.C. In 2000, he rose to Administrative Vice-Minister of Finance, and in 2003 joined the Bank of Japan as deputy governor.

Since January 2014, Mutō has served as the Director General/CEO of the Tokyo Organising Committee for the 2020 Summer Olympics.[2][3]
