Omiyage Galore at Sakura House

Omiyage Galore at Sakura House

At Sakura House, we have staff from all over the world, including France, Bangladesh, the U.S, Korea, China, Taiwan, and even Algeria. But whenever a staff member goes home, we still expect them to bring back omiyage!  Omiyage is the Japanese custom of bringing something back from a trip to give to your colleagues.  Normally it’s just a small snack or sweets or something.  It’s a way to say thanks to your coworkers who helped carry the extra workload while you were gone. So how did our staff who took vacations say thanks this week? Let’s see…   Just look at that spread! What do we have here.. First up […]

Easy fishing “Tsuri-Bori” (Artificial fishing hole)

Easy fishing “Tsuri-Bori” (Artificial fishing hole)

Fishing is romantic… but if you want play fishing, we need fishing pole, car, basket, etc…  too much cost! So, my recommend fishing is Japanese “Tsuri-bori”. “Tsuri-bori” is an artificial fishing hole  and you can rental fishing items, so good for easy fishing and one day trip. “Tsuri-bori” is many locations in Japan and low price, some “Tsuri-bori” is you can  grill yourself!! let’s try easy fishing!!

Discover Tokyo … In LEGO

Who does not love LEGOs ? This is a toy loved by any gender, class and geography with its simple possibilities, but endless . Who does not like Tokyo? This is a city that is also loved by many people now the cultural mecca of food, science and art ( and more! ) .

Harajuku A House – A Cool History

Working at Sakura House, I get to introduce customers to some really cool buildings.  But as it turns out, the original Sakura House is still the coolest. In 1992, when we first started, we opened this house in Harajuku.  After a few years, some of the rooms were converted into an art gallery called Design Festa Gallery!  Both the gallery and the housing agency have expanded and grown by leaps and bounds since this first building began operating. The rooms that we still rent in the building for monthly stay are extremely popular with artists and young people wishing to experience Harajuku on full blast!  Where else can you live […]

Eid-Ul-Adha Party

Eid-Ul-Adha Party

Sakura House organized its first-ever Eid-Ul-Adha party yesterday, at the Shibuya Yoyogi-Uehara friendly house for Muslims. Amidst incessant downpour, the event was attended by 15 residents and 5 staff members. As the Sakura House staff, we tried our best to replicate an authentic event by serving three different kinds of cooked meat. Although Eid is a totally different matter in their respective countries (with the food, family & friends, and fun-fare), the residents appreciated the effort whole-heartedly. ++A short background on Eid-Ul-Adha++ Eid-Ul-Adha (The Feast of the Sacrifice) is the 2nd biggest festival in the Islamic calendar. It is the celebration that succeedes Hajj, the annual gathering of Muslims in […]
