Residence management and living support services for guesthouses for foreigners

This position is one of the main parts of SAKURA HOUSE.
Essential to ensure that share house users (residents) can enjoy their stay in Japan safely and securely.
Not only do you have a lot of interaction with residents, but this position is also the one that is most appreciated.
In fact, it is not uncommon for customers to thank us by mentioning our staff’s names in their reviews.
Some of them even come back to Japan looking forward to meeting our staff.


About 30 years ago, when there were not many foreigners in Japan, we started out with a passion to revolutionize the inconvenient services for foreigners in Japan and make Japan a place where people from all over the world can come more easily. Today, we have 100 properties in Tokyo and Kyoto, but we started with a single bunk bed in a 4.5 tatami room and built each guest house and share house one by one with our own hands. We are characterized by our flexible, customer-first service. We are committed to providing safe, secure, and enjoyable accommodations and housing services for foreign residents who come to Japan for a variety of reasons. Today, we have grown to welcome guests from over 100 countries annually. As we enter a new era, we continue to move forward with the aim of further evolution and improvement.
