Good evening!  This is Jonathan at the Sakura Hotel Hatagaya.  

The remodeling goes on, but it feels like we're starting to near the finish line.  

As you can see, our front desk is getting very near to completion.  We hope to welcome many new customers here!  

s-IMG_0462.jpg

What I see as the biggest change is the expansion of our luggage holding area.  

s-IMG_0464.jpg

The Sakura Hotel Hatagaya is changing alongside the cherry blossom trees.  While the makeup of our hotel is changing, our fundamentals are going to stay the same.  That is to say, we are still going to endeavor to provide friendly, bilingual service to customers from across Japan, and all over the world!

Good evening!  This is Jonathan at the Sakura Hotel Hatagaya.  

For the past few days, the staff here has been running the hotel as carpenters and electricians worked to remodel our front desk and cafe counter.  The front is still not quite finished, but the cafe is almost done!  

IMG_0455.JPG

As we get used to the new layout, we will be able to provide faster drink service.  Thank you to our regular customers who have continued to visit us in the midst of construction.

We have changed our cafe desk layout, but otherwise we are the same old Sakura Cafe, offering reasonably priced drinks and food from Japan and all over the world, with a great atmosphere for study or relaxation.  We hope we will see you soon!

旅好きで、特にタイが好きです
また海外旅行気分を味わえるサクラホテルで働き始めました。

I'm just back from long long holiday in Australia 2month ago, 
then luckly I could work at this this international hostel with good people and environment. to be quite honest, this environment reminds me of Sydney, you know why? It's because you can see lots of people from many countries in Sydney as well. 

旅好きなので、海外のいろんなことをもっと教えてください。

I'm the one very addicted to travel. I'm looking forward to seeing as many people as possible and I would like to know anything about your country so that i might go visit your country near future.



Good evening!  This is Jonathan at the Sakura Hotel Hatagaya. 

Today we held a special event in our cafe.  A sushi teacher came and taught how to make sushi that looks like the character "Chopper" from the famous manga / anime "One Piece."  I was asked to enter the class.  

Full disclosure, I know next to nothing about "One Piece" except that it's popular, and there are pirates, and there is comedy, and physically impossible things take place.  

In spite of this , I do know a thing or two about sushi, although I have not actually MADE sushi in a very long time, since the night in university when one of my Japanese professors had the whole class over to her home to make nigiri sushi.  On the consumption end though, I am well experienced, as I imagine anyone who has been to enough parties in Japan will tend to become.  

s-IMG_0445.jpg

The class itself was a lot of fun.  The teacher had taken the time to prepare a translation so that English speakers could participate.  All of the students were sushi amateurs, but the teacher guided us through every step, so even my sushi turned out okay!  


s-IMG_0444.jpg
We will continue to have events like this throughout the year, so if you live in the area please keep checking our website for information.  Also, if you are planning to stay with us and see that there will be an event during your stay, we would be very happy to have you join us.  Hopefully we will see you next time!

Heya It's Kent from Sakura Hotel Hatagaya with another blog of the day, I hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful Sakura trees blossoming all over Japan right now. Don't forget to be trigger happy with your camera!

Today is a special day for Sakura Hotel Hatagaya because it was the first day of the renovations to happen this year here. The whole hotel was filled with workers diligently working away removing the old counter.

2013-03-26 11.11.05.jpg

This was our temporary front desk for the morning! Ai is actually sitting on 2 boxes which were also supporting the key storage compartment where all our room keys are kept. Once the builders had installed our brand spanking new front desk in, we migrated back.

2013-03-26 12.26.59 (2).jpg

The front desk was customized by hand to our needs and it was beautifully done, this wasn't no IKEA desk we were installing!

2013-03-26 13.44.11.jpg

This is what it looks like after everything was done!!
 Ai using our fresh new desk to check in all our lovely guests tonight.

2013-03-26 19.59.11.jpg

The cafe is also getting remodeled just like the front desk, we are increasing the space behind both areas to increase service times and efficiency all around, also visually this is much more pleasing than our old counter.

2013-03-26 13.16.53.jpg

Our new cafe area looks like this after all the work was done. Remember folks this is just Day 1 of the Renovations at Sakura Hotel Hatagaya!

2013-03-26 20.00.38.jpg

Our regular cafe customers are already appreciating the refreshed look of our cafe, we hope everyone enjoys our efforts to make Sakura Cafe the best in Hatagaya.

Good evening!  This is Jonathan from the Sakura Hotel Hatagaya.  

Today we had some spring rain.  In the spring season, practically everywhere you go in Japan there are people viewing the beautiful cherry blossoms that are blooming now.  

P3220074.JPG


Here at the Sakura Hotel, we are welcoming spring, and changing the atmosphere at our hotel a little, by remodeling the front desk, cafe desk, as well as the cafe area.

They are ALL 400 yen.

We also have 2 Sakura beers!

SAKURA CAFE HATAGAYA OPEN 24H Free-WiFi
Good evening!  This is Jonathan from the Sakura Hotel Hatagaya.  

We have a great cafe, where you can eat many kinds of good food, but if you are travelling in Japan, it's also fun to try eating out at different Japanese restaurants.  Even around our hotel, as well as in neighbouring Shinjuku, there are lots of great places to eat out.  

s-IMG_0428.jpg

One such place, which you will pass when you come to our hotel the first time, is a chain gyudon (rice in a bowl with beef and onion on top) and curry restaurant called Sukiya (the website is in Japanese only.).  When you exit the south exit of Hatagaya Station and walk in the direction of the hotel, you will see the local Sukiya on your right, so it is also a helpful landmark.  

The actual menu is written entirely in Japanese, but I can still recommend this restaurant to customers who cannot read the language, because every item on the menu has a picture you can point to.  The only other thing to remember is that there are different sizes for each dish as well.  The higher the price, the bigger the portion.  I have Japanese friends who insist that Sukiya is the best chain gyudon restaurant in Japan.  

I took a picture when I ate there recently.  This is a western style curry gyudon (my translation.  Japanese: "kare- nanban gyudon.").  I got a normal (Japanese: "nami") sized serving with a salad and miso soup set for only 500 yen.  Not only did it fill me up for a reasonable price, but it was quite delicious!  

s-IMG_0420.jpg

This is just one of many ways that customers who choose to stay with us can experience Japanese culinary culture.  I will continue introducing restaurants that you can find here in Hatagaya, as well as others you might see around Japan during your travels, so please keep reading our blog for that and other articles!  



SHISHA CAFE 800 yen   incl. 1drinkSUSHI ROLL WORKSHOP on March 28th (thu)Tamago Kake Gohan・SHINDOFUJI・Tokyo Release・So tasty that rendering any kind of seasoning unneccessary. Completely free of any pesticide residues.
Good evening!  This is Jonathan from the Sakura Hotel Hatagaya.  

I have been living in Japan for about 7 years, but I haven't been here in the Kanto Region for that entire time.  I lived in a lovely rural town for quite a long time.  Now, rural areas have their good things, and their problems.  For a coffee lover like me, one of those problems (or inconveniences if you will) was the scarcity of good coffee shops.  
s-IMG_0427.jpg
Having moved to this area, where coffee shops are in abundance, I feel that my coffee life is well fulfilled.  My face is already well known at coffee shops in the city I'm living in, and even when I'm wandering about in Tokyo I like to take the occasional breather with a cup or two.  There are many good coffee shops in Shinjuku, a mere stones throw from our hotel in Hatagaya, although my personal favourite shops are located around the New South Exit of Shinjuku Station.  It's worth noting that this area also features Takashimaya Times Square, a nifty shopping complex that I would recommend anyone visit.   

If there could be said to be any problem, it is that the price can be a little high.  On top of that, for those who have been kind enough to stay at our hotel, going on a mini-journey for coffee isn't exactly appealing either.  However, here at Sakura Cafe Hatagaya, we offer coffee at a very reasonable price.  You can get a regular size coiffee for only ¥190, and we also offer bottomless coffee (as well as some other drinks) with our all-you-can-eat-breakfast, for a low price of only ¥350!  

I would describe our coffee as both mild and smooth.  You don't even have to stay with us to enjoy it.  I recommend our cafe to anyone looking for a quiet place to enjoy a nice cup of coffee while they study or read or whatever.  We hope to see you soon!

I first came to Japan as a study abroad student.  I studied at Nanzan University, which is located in Nagoya, and along with textbook Japanese, my goal was to learn more common Japanese and the culture as well.  Because there was a BOOK OFF! right next to the station I commuted to school through, I found out where I could cheaply purchase things like manga and CDs.  Now, I am not really into manga, but I do feel that the reason I came to appreciate Japanese popular music is that BOOK OFF! was near a place I went everyday.  Of course there were some bands I had already heard of before I initially came to Japan, but when a Japanese friend introduced me to a new one that I liked, I could go ahead and buy a used copy for only around 300 yen.  Since CDs can be so expensive in Japan, I felt like I had made a great discovery.  Here is an example.  I had never heard of B'z before I came to Japan, but a friend introduced them to me, and I purchased one of their CDs for a low price without worrying about whether I would especially care for them or not.  As it turns out that I like B'z very much.  , and as a side note, every CD of theirs I own I purchased at BOOK OFF!

I got onto this subject because I discovered a BOOK OFF! within walking distance of our hotel.  What I imagine is for Japanese people a very average had quite a big influence on my own personal Japanese study journey.  

(from here I'm going to offer a few comments to non-Japanese people that I don't feel warrant being translated, so if you were following along in Japanese and English, we're going to take a little detour here.  Batten down the hatches.)  

This is where I just insert the editorial comment that the kind of deals you can find at a BOOK OFF! are worth the attention both of students of Japanese as well as tourists just passing through.  If you are into manga, you can get whole series for just a few thousand yen.  There are video games, books, DVDs, and as I went into ad nauseum above, CDs.  I especially think that whether you understand (or are trying to understand) the language or not, you can enjoy music, and at a BOOK OFF! even a miss (my brief attempt at liking the band 10-Feet is an example) isn't so bad since, as long as you pay attention to the sticker price, can be a third of the price of new CDs or better.  Sure, if you can't read Japanese it could be a little intimidating, but I would encourage anyone who is interested to at least give it a try.  

Nice to meet you~

Hello!  My name is Jonathan, and today is my first day working at the front desk at Sakura Hotel in Hatagaya.  I am originally from Pennsylvania in the United States of America, but have been living and working in different areas of Japan since 2006.  My hobbies include snowboarding, listening to music, and reading. I am fluent in Japanese, and have travelled to many different parts of Japan, so I hope that I can be helpful to anyone whose travel will also take them outside of Tokyo, or has any general questions about life in Japan.

The soup infused with many kinds of spices and sesame.

The noodles are very sticky and uneven with a varying thickness which makes the noodles very very tasty!

St. Patrick's Day Special Menu

Hello all from Sakura Hotel Hatagaya.
This is Ayumi :)


White day is a romantic holiday celebrated in Japan, Taiwan and South of Korea.

The holiday falls on March 14th, one month exactly after Valentine's Day.

Tradition in these countries holds that women are supposed to give men romantic gift on Valentine's Day, while men are supposed to return the favor on White Day.

Valentine's Day in parts of Asia has expanded beyond the Western version of the holiday.
Instead of giving gifts to spouses or boyfriends,  some women in Japan feel  duty-bound  to present gifts of chocolate to all male co-workers.

If Valentine's Day in Japan is all about the guys, White day is all about ladies.

White day is a chance for all the men who received gifts on Valentine's Day to return the favor to the ladies in their lives.

The ladies lave sweets and flower!

St. Patrick's Day Special Menu
Hello! this is NAOTO from SAKURA HOTEL HATAGAYA!

Have you heard of "KAFUNSHO" (=Ceder pollen allergy / pollinosis in Japanese) ?
it's kind of same as hay fever in U.S. and some other countries however

Every time, Every year, yes, Every Spring,
this is the big issue in mainland of Japan.


**** KAFUNSHO STORY ****

Nowadays Japan is one of the developed countries however
After WW II, Japanese people had to start over from nothing - on a burnt ground.

Because of Ceder grows real quicker than other trees,
People planted lots of ceder for building materials - it really worked.

However now too much ceder is making too much pollen (its their season - in spring.)
and lots of people are suffering from itchy eyes, runny noses cough etc etc...these days.

**********************************

If you are sensitive, or allegic to pollen or something --- 
just be careful to visit mainland of Japan in the end of Feb, Mar, Apr, 
(and possibly in May.)


I couldn't resist my runny nose so I went to drugstore - - -
IMG_1201.JPG

Dang it, Which one should I get?

NAOTO
Sakura Cafe Hatagaya  held a workshop of making 
a rolled sushi for HINAMATURI day.
There were 38 participants joined today.
Most of the participant was the first challenge to make this, 
but every rolled sushi looks beautiful.
