Hey everyone, We recently had our Halloween party at Sakura Cafe Ikebukuro. We had guests from all over the world! I saw many residents of Sakura House share houses, guests houses, dormitories, and apartments, including Higashi Nagasaki Terrace, Kanamecho, and Nishinippori.   The jello shots were delicious, the music was good, and the costumes were awesome! I rode the train to the party in my Rilakkuma costume.   He’s a famous Japanese character.  Check out my Rilakkuma DJ action! View the rest of the pics here! What did you do for Halloween?  Leave it in a comment. Have a nice week you guys! Justin

Usually when I go back home from work, I have many things to do like laundry, cooking, cleaning, etc,,,   While I’m doing house work, I usually let my daugther to watch TV.   But recently, I bought a Japanese Playing Card called KARUTA and let her play with me instead of just wathcing TV.   My house work will finish late but I thought it will be better for her to gain ability to concentrate and learn more vocabularies and Japanese characters.   In the game, the reciter randomly selects and reads the READING CARDS while the competitors, on their knees, try to beat their opponents at finding the correct matching PICTURE […]

Halloween! Sakura House & Sakura Cafe! Japan!

Hello Sakura World, Maybe you’ve celebrated Halloween since you were a child, but do you know the history of Halloween? Halloween is a shortening of “all-hallows eve”, the day before a traditional Christian feast, All Hallows.  The roots of Halloween are pagan.  Most people now think that the dressing up was originally meant to be a way to scare off evil spirits before this holy day. In parts of Europe, turnips were the symbol of Halloween, but when settlers came to North America they used pumpkins instead.  The tradition has carried on into modern times. While children go trick or treating, most young adults (and even some older ones) have […]
