Isak, our new SAKURA HOUSE staff!

Hello! My name is Isak and today is my first day working at Sakura House!


I am originally from Sydney, Australia where I lived my whole life until I moved to Tokyo in March, this year.
Originally, I came to Tokyo because I had a job offer from a company and was set to start work in April, but since my visa got approved way faster than I was expecting it to, I ended up having to come to Tokyo in March.
This meant that I had an entire month between moving to Japan and starting work that I was completely free – no plans, and nowhere to live!

I turned to Tiktok for suggestions and searched up how other expats in Japan found housing for themselves when they first moved to the country. Eventually, I stumbled upon a video of someone who lived in a Sakura House sharehouse. They made living in a sharehouse sound so fun that it made me want to try living in one, and so after looking around a bit, I reserved a room at the Asakusa Kuramae sharehouse. In all honesty, there wasn’t any particular reason for me to reserve a room at Asakusa Kuramae sharehouse specifically, I just reserved the first room that was available. But I had such a great time that I don’t regret it at all. The location was great – the sharehouse itself was right outside Kuramae station, which is on the Toei Oedo Line and very accessible to the rest of Tokyo but also walking distance to the famous Sensoji temple, and even better, it was located right in the middle of Kuramae area, a shitamachi area known for all sorts of interesting shops and restaurants hidden along the streets.

Eventually, I moved out of the sharehouse and moved into an apartment closer to my workplace, but I never forgot how much I enjoyed the experience and pretty shortly after starting work, I applied for a job at Sakura House. Miraculously, I got the job! I am now very fortunate and thankful to be able to write this blog post as a new staff member of Sakura House.

On my days off from work, I’m usually playing games (currently replaying Majora’s Mask for the umpteenth time) or exploring Japan (here’s a fun fact that not many people know: Akita has the best udon in Japan).


Feel free to ask me for game suggestions or recommended travel spots!
I am looking forward to meeting everyone and more than happy to help with any issues you might have, housing related or otherwise!
