Sakura House, Sakura Hotel, and another member of our Sakura group Hotel Continental Fuchu are recommended on a magazine as "the best option for all business trips."

The magazine is ACCJ Journal. ACCJ stands for the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan.
It is a professional business magazine issued by ACCJ.

sss.jpg

What is distinctive with our group is that we can offer accommodation no matter how long your stay is.
Sakura House provides monthly accommodation. We have private rooms in apartments and dormitories in share houses.
It is offered only for non-Japanese people.?

Sakura Hotels is more for daily and weekly stays for travelers and short business trips (some of the guests stay more than a month at our hotels and that is always welcome).
All the hotels are located in central Tokyo. Asakusa is a bit far from the center, but as you might know, if you are a tourist it would be a perfect place, since it is located near the famous sight seeing spot, Sensoji.

Both Sakura House/ Hotels do small tours and workshops to help you enjoy more of Tokyo.

From backpackers to the office workers, everyone is welcomed at Sakura group. Please give us an inquiry and we will offer you the most suitable accommodation.

from Sakura House and Sakura Hotel".

I went the night fair and

watching Japanese traditional AWA-dancing conpetition with wearing YUKATA.

I was intersted what people from overseas would been attracted to at the night market.

Most of the market sell Japanese snacks,all of them looks so yammy for me!

However,the first thing they did is greeting to the alter in shrine.

They asked me "How to pray??I will copy you!",

so I became to felt tence than I usually do.

"Bow,Bow,Crap,Crap and Bow again!!"

Everyone looked at me and copied well!

Next thing that they were interested in is...

s-IMG_6404.jpg

Catching baby turtles!!

I even have ever heard about this,I only know the catching golden fish!

They hasitated to try because they can't bring the baby turtle to home if they get one,

so I offered that I can take him to my home,if you get it, then they decided to try!!

But it seems so difficult and conldn't get my new pet!

s-IMG_6416.jpg

s-IMG_6440.jpg

Next one is ...ofcource, catching golden fishes !!

Our ex-staff Arai-san tried it and they were all exited!!

s-IMG_6467.jpg

Lastly, we went to see the dancing conpetition of Japanese AWA-dancing!

Taking a picture with paticipants, watching AWA-dancing...

They all got into Japanese rythm!!

Today was really fun day for everyone!!
Can't wait to participate the festival next year!!

Today, I have Wafi-san from Sakura House

here at Sakura Hotel Hatagaya,

he told many things about Algeria!

I am ashamed but I didn't know about Algeria much,

even where the country located,

and?found that its close to Egypt!

Then I understood why Wafi-san and Mohamed-san are close friends!

Seems to have fun with Arabic!

This is the national costume from Algeria! looks so cool!!

【Wafi-san in Algerian costume!!】

?

You know Japanese costume is "KIMONO"!!

I attended my friend's wedding hold in old shrine recently,

it was so beautiful that my friend wore KIMONO!

I am sorry that I only have these bad photos,

because she forbid me to use her photo that?

her face can be recognized.

s-japawedding1.jpgs-japawedding2.jpg

Her hasband is Swiss,

but he looks so nice in Japanese costume called HAKAMA,

its typical Japanese dress for gloom.

It is difficult to wear such a fomal KIMONO

but you can tray YUKATA or HAPPI easily!

and tomorrow you have a chance to wear them!!!

We have a festival here at Hatagaya area

and will attend to carry portable shrine with people from overseas!

Happi wear has been arrived!! can't wait till tomorrow!!!

Hello,everyone!

A typoon attacked all over Japan today, but fortunetely,

I didn't get wet when I came here,

hope?I can be able to go home safe!

On last weekend, there were many Japanese festival hold in Japan,

because its starting autumn season and

the festival held for hoping good hervest in ancient times.

Do you know the Japanese word "WASSHOI"?

Its the prase for carrying MIKOSHI.MIKOSHI is a portable shrines

to transport gods around?villeges and cities in festival.

Day before yesterday, when I ate my dinner at home,

I heard "WASSHOI!WASSHOI!" getting closer!

I learned out from window and tried to take photos!!

s-mikoshi1.jpg

s-mikoshi2.jpg

Uhhhnn...I couldn't catch it well.

However the light from Japanese lantern and their white cloth for festival

made the atmosphere so moody and dreamy.

I am Japanese but wonder what is "WASSHOI"means,

becaeuse the word is very familiar but I never know its meaning.

I found that there are various opinions, but most of

these opinions say the meaning like"harmony" or "together"!!

We,Sakura Hotel Hatagaya will attend to the festival

and carry the MIKOSHI on 23rd of September!!

IMG_1177.JPG

The photo is from last year!

Have a good time there!
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!  

SAKURA CAFE HATAGAYA OPEN 24H Free-WiFi

Hello, all. This is Yutaka.

On Nov. 21st, I participated "Visit Japan Travel Mart 2012" 
fair for inbound tourists to Japan, held in Pacifico Yokohama. 
And at the end of the fair, there was a closing ceremony.

 I do not remember when I came to mid-evening Yokohama 
last time, but night view from ceremonial hall was so beautiful that night!!
I recommend you go there, especially winter time when air is clear.
MUST-SEE place.

In the middle of the ceremony, there were also scenes that current 
and former Miss Japan ladies showed up and gave a speech 

to appeal Japan's attraction. They are as beautiful as Yokohama's 

night scene, too.

Tonight at 7pm (JP time),
we are playing against Australia for the FIFA world cup qualifying match.

本日7時、FIFAワールドカップアジア最終予選オーストラリア戦がキックオフします。

I myself usually am not the biggest fan of football, but it is a different story when it comes to when our national team plays.  

私は個人的に特別サッカーファンという言うわけではないのですが、日本代表が試合をするとなると話は別です。

It makes me realize how much I love my country and how much I am proud to be a Japanese.

そんなとき、日本をどれだけ愛して、どれだけ日本人であることが誇りであるかを実感させられるものです。

This game sure will be very exciting, So come to Sakura Cafe Hatagaya to support your team.
Either you support Japan or Australia, or even you cannot decide which team to support, we welcome you! 

この試合は絶対に面白い試合になると思います。サクラカフェ幡ヶ谷であなたのチームを応援して下さい! 日本を応援する方も、オーストラリアを応援する方も、どっちか決められないという方も、
皆さん大歓迎です!

You already know that we have a great selection of beer from all over the world too!

御存知の通り、サクラカフェ幡ヶ谷には、サッカー観戦に欠かせない、世界中からのビールが揃っていますよ!

Speaking of Australia, we have two beautiful little princesses from down under.

オーストラリアといえば、今オーストラリアから、サクラホテル幡ヶ谷にとってもかわいい2人のプリンセスたちがお泊りなんです。

photo (1).JPG
 



















Aren't they adorable?  Beautiful sisters, Alexandra and Meaghan.
Alexandra's cheeks are to die for!  So cute! (Yes, I love baby's cheeks.)
Meaghan, she is such an intelligent little girl.  

すごくかわいくないですか? この愛らしい2人は、アレキサンドラちゃんとメーガンちゃん姉妹です。
アレキサンドラちゃんのほっぺたぷにょぷにょでたまらないです!(赤ちゃんのほっぺた大好きなんです。)
メーガンちゃんは本当に聡明な女の子なんですよ。

Our staff Ms.Fukuda and I were showing Meaghan how to play with the traditional Japanese toys that we have at the reception. 
After we enjoyed playing, Meaghan said to us, "Arigatou gozaimasu!" with such a perfect accent! 

今日スタッフの福田さんと私が、メーガンちゃんにフロントにある日本の昔のおもちゃの遊び方を教えました。
そして楽しく遊んだ後に、メーガンちゃんは、本当にきれいな発音で、
「ありがとうございます!」って言ってくれたんです。

And I asked her if she could remember one new Japanese word today and tell me what she learned when she comes back. 
Then she replied, " I can remember two!!!" with big lovely smile on her face.
I was very happy to see how she has been so open to completely new language and culture for her.

そして、メーガンちゃんたちがご両親とお出かけする前に、「今日新しい日本語をひとつ覚えて、帰ってきたら教えてね!」と言ったら、
とびっきりの可愛い笑顔で、「2つ覚えられるよ!」ですって!
小さいのに、新しい言葉と文化にこんなにオープンなメーガンちゃんを見てほんとに嬉しかったです。

I can't wait until Meaghan comes back and tells me what she saw and learned today.

メーガンちゃんたちが帰ってきて、何をお勉強したのか聞くのが楽しみです。

And of course, the football match! 

そしてもちろん今日の試合も!

Go Samurai blue! Go Socceroos!!!





When travelling abroad, I always to love to visit museums.  

This one exhibition, I would not want you to miss!

北斎.jpg



















Until June 17th (yes, only 9 days left!), at Mitsui Memorial Museum, the exhibition is celebrating the 250th anniversary of Hokusai's birth. 
The exhibition allows you to explore over 160 pieces of Hokusai art including the famous The Thirty-six views of Mount Fuji.

Speaking of Japanese art, i would also like to introduce you Ms.Yayoi Kusama. 
She is one of my favorite artists of all time. Well-known for her repeating dot patterns, her art encompasses an astonishing variety of media. 

kusama.JPG

"The Flowers of Shangri-la" is one of my favorite piece of hers that can be seen at Kirishima Open-air Museum.  If you ever get a chance to visit south of Kyushu Kagoshima, I suggest you to put this on your To-do list.  The museum hold art pieces of would-famous artists including Isamu Noguchi and Yoko Ono.

Back to Tokyo.... if you are looking for some place to find some arty souvenir, Spiral in Aoyama is a great place to go.  

Japan is full of Art.

    There's an event coming up that I am very much looking forward to!

    The Tokyo Ramen Show

    Time: November 2nd (Wed) ~ 6th (Sun) between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.

    Place: Komazawa Olympic Parc

    (Train station: Komazawa Daigaku on the Denentoshi Line)

    It's just about half an hour away from Sakura Hotel Hatagaya. We'll be happy to tell you how to get there if you ask at the front desk.

     

    Btw, did you know that Hatagaya is full of Ramen restaurants? Even if you can't make it to the event you can still enjoy a big variety of Ramen in direct vicinity of our hotel!

    Just ask for our "Ramen Map" that we often hand out to our hotel guests. 

     

    We offer so many exotic drinks and food at Sakura Cafes,

    including Sakura Cafe Hatagaya.

    Where do we get recipes for all of those? Do you have any idea?

     

     

    Actually the guests staying at Sakura Hotels give us recipes.

    And guess what! I cooked with them yesterday!

     

     

    We had kind of a cooking party at this place: Design Festa Gallery Harajuku.

    Many guests and staffs gathered for this event!

     

     

    So we actually cooked according to the recipes in order to consider

    which food can be in the menu.

     

     

    候補5.JPGThey are talking about something... The guy in the white shirt cooked amazing spicy Tunisian food! Thank you very much! :)

     

     

     

    候補4.JPGTasting... everyone was so interested.

     

     

     

    候補2.JPGThey are staying at Sakura Hotel Hatagaya! From Spain and Venezuela!

     

    She cooked food called "Pan de hamo" (The spelling might be wrong because I don't speak Spanish). I heard that they bake it for Christmas.

     

     

     

    候補1.1.jpgThis is how it had looked before it was baked. Cute decorations!

     

     

     

    3.3.jpgAnd after being baked! It looks AWESOME!!

     

     

    There were other amazing drinks and food at the party.

    I just took pictures and ate...and washed dishes.

     

     

    I wonder which one will be added to the menu!

    We will definitely introduce it to you on this blog, so please keep checking!

    A couple of days ago I met up with some guests from Sakura Hostel Asakusa and Sakura House at Shinkiba Station where we got on a traditional Japanese Yakata-bune.

     

    A Yakata-bune is a boat where people eat, drink and party together while enjoying a fresh breeze on a hot summer day.

     

    6030555693_7fff301c90_o.jpg6030542231_6df51474f9_o.jpg

    We had a great time preparing Monjayaki and Okonomiyaki! It was All-You-Can-Eat&Drink, so we ordered lots of different stuff.
