There is something unusual thing inside a shrine in Kagurazaka.

Today I visited a shrine called Akagi jinja in Kagurazaka. There was unusual thing in there. After I went through torii… inside the shrine… There was a Cafe!! I’ve never seen the cafe inside shrines. Today I just saw it, but next time I will enter that store, and report on it. Bye.

Japanese or Western style?

Japanese or Western style?

As the saying goes,”When in Rome,do as the Romans do.” If you have a chance to live in Japan,I strongly recommend to stay in a japanese-style room.But you feel anxious,don’t you? To those people who are anxious about “TATAMI” rooms, I will introduce “Aloe Heights E” which were fully renovated!   On your left hand,it is a Japanese-style, and on your right hand,it is a western-style room.   You can switch your rooms as much as you like.   ■Hasune Aloe Heights E http://www.sakura-house.com/english/premise/aloe.php
