When we come across the terms ” guest house ” or ” dormitory “, we make the first assumption that there is no privacy right ? Well actually, in Sakura House we have specially designed the beds to allow you to have your own privacy and at the same time allow you to have a social environment. Let me break it down for you. The picture below, will show you how a typical bed in guest house/dormitory would look like ** no wall partitions or curtains to separate individual beds. ** the bed itself is not practically useful, meaning that you do not have any reading light attached to […]
You can explore the Kansai Region from Kyoto. While Kyoto has many interesting and beautiful spots to visit, photograph and enjoy, you shouldn’t limit yourself to the one city. Use Japan’s old capital as your base to explore East Japan while staying in our traditional “machiya” house. Sakura House Kyoto Imadegawa welcomes you people from everywhere to enjoy every aspect of Kansai.
If you have just landed on Japan, or are traveling from another city or prefecture towards Sakura House Kyoto Imadegawa, you will certainly be stopping at Kyoto Station.
As a staff member, I have been involved in a lot of photography work for Sakura House and privately on my off days too. Just like many of you, I love to travel and take pictures of iconic place in Tokyo from a unique perspective.
When going to Japan’s ancient capital, you have to do a one day tour of one of the best preserved districts in Kyoto Higashiyama. Considering the district alone has around 1600 temples, combine that number with the Shinto shrines all around the city and you have over 2000 different places to visit! Of course these are not the only Kyoto attractions to see when in the old capital. There are a great number of parks and natural spots, historical streets, an incredible variety of restaurants, souvenir shops and experiences (whether it be an owl café, or having a virtual reality samurai sword fighting battle in an old “machiya” townhouse). Each […]
Japan certainly has many tourist attractions and a wide variety of beautiful places to visit, but one particular aspect that brings many travelers to this country is its food. Japanese food is quite well known all around the world, and you may find ramen and sushi shops in your own country. Nonetheless, being in the country that has developed such tasty dishes gives travelers easy access to, not only a great variety of restaurants, but also their ingredients as well. Have you ever thought of making your own “soba” noodles? Or maybe using some fresh tuna for a nice “nigiri sushi” with locally grown wasabi just grated? Having access to […]
One of the many marvels people enjoy when coming to Kyoto is the possibility to buy some really unique original goods. Most people traveling to Kyoto have heard of the flea markets available on certain days of the month, the most popular being the one held on the 21st of each month at Toji Temple near Kyoto Station. Nonetheless, right near Sakura House Kyoto Imadegawa is the Kitanotenmangu Shrine, which has its own flea market held each month on the 25th called “Tenjin-san”. Not only locals, but travelers from all over the world come to find some local treasure and also enjoy the great variety of food offered by the […]
