Having Job hunting, Internship, or vacation plans in Tokyo? Stay with Sakura House!

Winter is coming, there are many things to do in Tokyo. For example, the famous comic and manga festival called Comiket (Comic Market) which will be in Odaiba, Tokyo. People come from around the world to join this event, one of the biggest Manga and Comic events occured. While others are busy with the job hunting and Internship. Coming from one of the global universities in South Japan, I also had similar Internship experience in Tokyo. To be honest I was anxious since I already expected living in Tokyo would be too expensive for my budget as student. Untill one day, my Japanese teacher told me about Sakura House. I […]

KYOTO, amazing city

KYOTO, amazing city

Dear mina-san! How is your new year started? I came to Sakura House Kyoto, Machiya Townhouse today! After our tasks are done, we could have a little bit of time, so went to Nijojo (Nijo Castle). It was so beautiful castle and we could see the actual place where Shogun Yoshinobu Tokugawa declared Taiseihokan (restoration of imperial rule). It was only 150 years ago, but I could imagine how Japan has been rapidly changed in this 150 years. When you visit Kyoto, please ask us for what to see and what to do, and of course what to eat! ] This pic was taken after we had nice dinner and […]

Shakujii Koen, infamous but a beautiful park

Shakujii Koen, infamous but a beautiful park

Hello Minasan! Today I want to share my discovery on the last weekend. I went to eat pizza with my family and a friend, and after the lunch,  we came to walk to help to digest our staffed stomach. And we found this park, called Shakujii Park. It is about 5 mins walk from Shakujii Koen Station on Seibu Ikebukuro Line.     It is about 10 mins away from Ikebukuro and so 20 mins from Shinjuku, but this park gives you a feeling it is somewhere not in Tokyo. And the thing is that this park is very beautiful! its not like one of these parks with garbage and […]

Pics I took in Okinawa

Pics I took in Okinawa

It is now autumn, the breeze are chilling but autumn foods are delicious. Today on this blog I want to share some pictures that I took in this summer. I went to a beach once in this summer. Beaches used to be much closer to my mind but now as my life has been changed, going to a beach takes a lot more energy. Well, I went to Okinawa in the beginning of September it wasn’t at the middle of Summer, but it was still very hot. Though it was raining for a few days, Sun has finally welcomed us for the last 2 days of our stay in Okinawa. […]
