We hold events in Tokyo on regular basis to bring together people from all across the world and introduce them to Japanese culture. Thanks to our long history and the great relationship SAKURA HOUSE was able to build with the local community, the events we hold are special. At events like the local matsuri (festival) Mikoshi in Hatagaya, our residents can be more than just spectators. Together with the locals, our residents can carry a portable shrine called mikoshi and be part of a great tradition in Shinto.
