Live close to a futurist neighborhood ( Yokohama )

Good day everyone, Choosing a place or an area to live in can be a challenging task in Japan, especially if you are a foreigner. I have lived in Japan for over 8 years now and from a personal point of view living in Tokyo is cool and exciting but sometimes it would be also idea to have a place or nearby area that you can get away from all the crowded places. I live around the Yokohama area and trust me, if you want to feel like you are living in a futuristic and artist place, I would like to recommend a Share House called Sakura House Omori, which […]

Bento Box culture

Bento Box culture

Hi, this is Mai from Sakura House sales team. I would like to talk about Japanese Bento-box!  the bento box is part of Japanese culture. There are many varieties of bento box, including hand-made ones, high-end varieties made by commercial caterers and “ekiben”lunchboxes sold at railway stations.  Everyone in Japan has fond memories of bento boxes. There is also good bento shop just near our premises (MOTOHASUNUMA), one of my favorite apartment and share house. If you stay Sakurahouse Motohasunuma, you can experience Japanese style bento box at your room by yourself  or with your friends! You can try make bent-box at your kitchen too!
