SHISHA CAFE 800 yen   incl. 1drinkAll-you-can-eat Breakfast 350yen

Hello, This is NAOTO from.Sakura Hotel Hatagaya- TOKYO!!

If you have ever been to TOKYO... I guess you have already known,?
Tokyo is the assembly of lots of big cities such as Shibuya,Shinjuku,Roppongi,Harajuku etc..

Totally same as N.Y. , As the song goes "Concrete jungle where the - " :)
Example : Shinjuku station from GoogleMap!

Imagine this situation :

*Okay, Finally I have arrived to Shinjuku station!!
?Landmark... yup, I'm standing by the ABC building,
?I'm right here on the map...
?Well... there's lots of looks a-like building around me,


even you have a map, and know where you are on a map,
you still need to get to know the direction to get to the goal.

Here is the solution....
Pocket Compass will give you the right direction in a sec!!
2013-08-02 13.17.01.jpg

Not in Outback, Even in TOKYO, compass will be really useful tool for every person, even local people!
Another example..
*The restaurant is located on the north part of Shinjuku station.
*You are in the Shinjuku station, just got off the train.
*There's many exits... A3,D5,E8 !?! which exit should I take?

simple! Keep walking towards the North, and take any exit,
That's the nearest one to the restaurant!

No need to walk all the way round of whole station... yay! :)

Enjoy summer time, Happy holidays!!

Rainy season,,,

| | TrackBacks (0)

Befittingly in Tsuyu, the rainy season in Japan,

But, even if you are not prepared, you don't have to worry raining so much.


Sakura Hotel Hatagaya has umbrellas for rent.

In Japan, diposable plastic umbrellas are very common.

You can buy them almost everywhere, about 400 yen or less.

But so called "disposable" umbrellas are actually usable again and again.

So we recycle the umbrellas which our guests left in our umbrella stand.

By recycling, we can use limited resources effectively. :-)

Sushi Workshop at Sakura Cafe Hatagaya on June 15th

Hey everybody, it's Shun the trainee here.
I thought it'd be rainy today but was beautiful day was it??
Hope you did all the laundry today, cuz I'm sure it'll be hard to hang them outside from tomorrow.

Today I would love to talk about my hometown,
Fukushima. I know now you all know this name, because of that incident. 
Sometimes people get nervous when I tell them where I'm from, but please don't hesitate to ask about my hometown, we're not dead, and it's not Taboo thing at all!!

There's a HUGE FESTIVAL in Fukushima city today, 
It is Tohoku Rokkon Sai,well in Kanji, it like this,東北六魂祭. Here's a little bit of Japanese Kanji class for today!!

 There are 6 prefectures in Tohoku Area, and each place has its own Festival which is all amazing. When 3.11 occurred, we realized how important to stand together, and because Tohoku is not the center of Japan, some people didn't realize how big role we have for entire Japan,therefore right after the earthquake and nuclear power plant incident, most of people was frightened because that was something we've ever never imagined. 

 Now this year is our 3rd Festival since Tohoku people has stood up together and has come up with this idea.
Usually you need to go to each place and see and enjoy the festival. but only this time of year, you can enjoy, eat, laugh, feel, and have fun at the same place.




Here are some photos from Rokkon Sai Today!!!

So why don't you go to Fukushima???
It costs you 8,000yen by bullet train.
And 3000yen by Highway Bus.

If you don't have time to visit Tohoku now, you can also enjoy something from Tohoku at Sakura Hotel Hatagaya.

We now have pudding made by using Eggs from Tohoku, I will introduce you all some other time.

Have a great night all!!! :]

Hello, This is Yui !

It was raining all-day today, but you don't have to be blue! because it means, you could have large bowl of cafe au lait at our place for all-day ! Yeah!!!

Since I was born in Tokyo, I use bus often inside Tokyo. Some days before, I took a bus from Shibuya when I come to hotel. You may know our hotel is located close by Shinjuku area, only take a train to go. Not only that, but we are also close to Shibuya area, only taking a bus! Let's me explain how to get our place from Shibuya by bus.

There is bus terminal just in front of the west exit of Shibuya station. You can see many bus stops there. Please get "route 63" to Nakano or "route 66" to Asagaya, be careful not to take another route of going Nakano, it will takes you to Shinjuku!

The bus goes through to the middle of Shiuya.

Sorry for my bad pictures because I took them from running bus...


Passing by the NHK hall...



Going through a junction of Tomigaya...




Passing through Koshu highway...



Approximately in 20 minutes. The Hatagaya bus stop is located in fromt of super market "Gourmet City", please go back to the direction that the bus comes from, turn to the right and you can see Hatagaya station. The Sakura Hotel Hatagaya is only 1 minute away! You can easily find us when you turn right at the convenience store "familymart".





If  you would like to go to Shibuya from our place, please across the Koshu Street to the opposite side. You can find a bus stop just in front of "Matsuya" restaurant with orange sign.



 Don't you think that is nice to enjoy the townscape by getting on the bus? You have 5 to 6 buses in every 1 hour, so no need to wait so long to catch it.

Shibuya is a quite busy place that makes you get little wearied, please get a bus and take a rest in our place Sakura café Hatagaya ! you are always welcome!!

Hi,everyone! Its Aya,the trainee at Sakura hotel hatagaya!

Our guests are coming from all over the world.

When we  work at the  front reception, many people ask us about International ATM.

So we always ask them to go to ''Seven-Eleven''

If you go there, there is ATM which you can use your cash card in Japan. 

Its very useful isn't it?

However, there is a sad news for you.

Master card. Maestro and Cirrus can not be accepted at the ATM from April 19th.

Its a bit sad news isn't it? But there is a international ATM at Japan post office!!

Also we have one more good news!!

There is a post office right next to our hotel,Sakura hotel Hatagaya!!


Our hotel is easy access to post office so that you can use ATM etc...!!

Moreover, Easy access to almost everywhere in Tokyo!!

Autumn Special Offer
[ Home Page Limited Offer] Group Special

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!  


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


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!  


Autumn Special Offer
[ Home Page Limited Offer] Group Special

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.  


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!  


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!

Sakura Hotel Hatagaya - Access

| | TrackBacks (0)

Since we often receive inquiries from customers who ask us how to get from Hatagaya Station to Sakura Hotel Hatagaya, I made a little photo map. ^^

Leave through the ticket barrier. There is only one, so you can't miss it.

Pass the ticket vending machines and head for the stairs.

Take the stairs to your left (South Exit). Halfway up there is a 100 Yen Shop.

The stairs will lead you to this exit. There is a big bridge on your right side. Turn to the left, away from the bridge.

If you walk down the street a little further, you can see a big red sign on a roof top at the end of the street. There is also a Family Mart (convenience store) in the same building.


When you stand in front of the building with the big red sign, turn right.

Now you can see the Sakura Hotel sign.

It was just a two minute walk from the station. (^O^)

What day it is today?

| | TrackBacks (0)

Hello all. My name is Yutaka Tamura, a new trainee at Sakura 

Do you know what day it is today in Japan?.
It is "Hotel's Day" today.
It is named after the date of Imperial Hotel's opening date in 1890.
The hotel was built as a national undertaking at the initiative of 
Kaoru Inoue, foreign minister at that time.

121120syodai imperial hotel.jpg

The picture above is the first Imperial Hotel. 

Also, Nov. 20th is the day for "Pizza"
In 1889, Margherita, the Italian princess of the day, desired a piece 
of "Pizza" which was trendy food back in those days. Pizza makers 
in Naples then made a Pizza with White (mozzarella cheese), Green 
(basil) and Red (tomato sauce) in the motif of Italian national flag. 

That was the origin of "Pizza Margherita".

121120 Margherita.jpg


Beautiful Princess Margherita

Anyway, it is the day for "Hotel" and "Pizza". So why 
don't you enjoy "Pizza" at our Sakura Cafe Hatagaya
then have a good sleep at Sakura Hotel Hatagaya at night!!


I will show you how to get to the nearest public bath to our hotel.
*All the rooms at our hotel have private bathrooms.

Go out of the hotel and turn left. You see a shopping mall on your right.
Keep going straight on that street, and you will see the public bath on your right.
Here is what it looks like at night.
The name of the place is SENGOKUYU.
They are open from 16:00 to 00:00, but closed on Monday.

It looks like this in the daytime.

It is fun to bathe in a big bath tub! You should try it at least once when you are in Japan.

Do you know  Japan's convenience store is more convenient than ever!?
You can buy vegetables and fruits like in super markets, for 24 hours.

Hello everyone!
Do you like Ramen ??

There are 2 ramen shops near Hatagaya where I recommend.

At first, 'Hidakaya' ramen.
today I orderd this, 
Cold Chinese noodles accompanied by soup for dipping


I ordered 'Red' soup, more spicy than white one.
(Both of them are pork-bone soup)

Looks like soooo delicious!ー☆彡

Once you eat it, you'll go there everyday to eat it again! 

Second is this, 'Musashiya' ramen.


You can choose the noodle type(soft, middle, hard), the taste (deep, middle, light).


The rice is free of charge, and you'll drink  the soup completely! :)

These ramen shops are near Sakura Hotel Hatagaya.
Anytime you can ask us the place! 

Enjoy your Hatagaya life!!

    On Tuesday Yukako and I - being the newbies at Hatagaya - did a tour around Tokyo to find out what the other Sakura hotels and cafes are like. This was also a good opportunity for us to introduce ourselves to the staff members we hadn't met yet.

    We started at Sakura Hotel Jimbocho and Maria showed us around. It seems Jimbocho is the hotel were lots of anime fans like to stay, because it's close to Akihabara.
    The rooms are very neat and pretty new. Yukako and I really liked the cozy atmosphere.
    We also had a look at the cafe. Jimbochos Masala Chai is really good. So if you go there, definitely give it a try!

    Next was Sakura Hostel Asakusa. On our way to the hostel we passed the famous Kaminarimon and Sensoji Shrine. So if you stay at the hostel you can start sightseeing right away, which is probably the reason why it is so popular among foreign tourists. The cafeteria was full of backpackers from all over the world. The rooms are mainly dormitory style, but look very nice and new.
    Tomo and the others were quite busy though, so we didn't stay too long, because we didn't want to disturb them.

    Then we went to Sakura Hotel Ikebukuro which is the biggest Sakura Hotel and has 2 buildings. The rooms are really nice and comfortable. One even reminded me of my own room at my parent's home in Germany. We had Picata for lunch at the cafe, and it was delicious! Highly recommended and pretty reasonable!

    After a short stop in Shinjuku where we said hello to the people at the Sakura House main office we headed to Harajuku. There we had a light afternoon snack at the Design Festa Cafe before we had a look at the Design Festa Gallery. We finished our tour at Sakura-Tei, an okonomiyaki restaurant where we had okonomiyaki for dinner.

    Some of you might have recognized this place but OMURA AN is another nice local restaurant where you get to eat nice soba noodles in Hatagaya.






    Here is an English menu for you. They have both hot and cold broth for your preference.  



    I recommendation is `KAMONAN SOBA`.  There are duck meats, spring onions and fresh soba noodles in a hot broth. They also have a set lunch menu like tempura soba with rice and garnish.



    I hope you enjoy your lunch in this nice little restaurant!

    What I Thought - About This Earthquake -

    | | TrackBacks (0)

    We have many kinds of metro and JR line in Tokyo.

    Usually, we can ride trains on time, as we want.

    But after the earthquake occured, the trafic was much delayed, stopped.


    This picture is at Takenozuka station (my hometown station in Tokyo)this morning.



    For the light-cut-off scheduled, the train crew controled the amount of passengers.

    (Over 200 people are waiting their turn to enter the exit. as me.)


    What I Thought about this earthquake,

    ・Kindness when the emergency, is very very necessary.

    ・Train's Emergency stop is thanksfull.(usually, I say 'Delayed again(><)..)

    ・Japan can cut more electricity and water as usual. Everyone need to think it again.

    shabu shabu

    | | TrackBacks (0)

    I went shabu syabu last night.

    Do you know what is shabu shabu?

    Shabu shabu is a Japanese variant of hot pot. The dish is related to sukiyaki in style, where both use thinly sliced meat and vegetables, and usually served with dipping sauces, but it is considered to be more savory and less sweet than sukiyaki. It is considered a winter dish but is eaten year-round.



    The name shabushabu is onomatopoeic, being the sound heard when paper-thin sliced beef is dipped and lightly waved around a couple of times in boiling stock.

    Shabushabu has recently become known overseas as a modern Japanese dish.

    There is 2 shabu shabu restaurant near sakura hotel hatagaya.

    How about going to go there tonght?
