A new Bus Tour through Tokyo!

Hey everybody!
This is Lars from Sakura Hostel Asakusa again!


This time I would like to share something with you I read on the news recently! Actually, I always read the BBC news, I don't really know why, but I like their way of reporting. But it's not about that.

8085149610_427c36e8f2_c.jpgPicture by: saebaryo

I read there, that there will be a new special bus tour through Tokyo! It is like an action bus tour! They call it "Ninja and Samurai Safari Tour". It will take about one our and guide you through Tokyo and there will be theatric scenes played by actors in Samurai and Ninja costumes!

And guess what, it will of course come to the historical district of Asakusa, where our beautiful hostel is located, too! ^_^

The ticket will maybe cost about 7000-8000 JPY. But I guess it will be worth it!

If one of you has the opportunity to take this bus, let us know how it was! (:
I bet it is a great experience!

See you around! (^_^)v

[Tokyo Info] Another National Stadium [Tokyo Backpackers Hostel]

Hi! This is Ayu, the football mania from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.

As some of you might already know, our National Stadium will be reconstructed for Tokyo Olympic 2020.

We had the final event on 31st of May, and now it's closed.


However, we still have another National Stadium actually!
Did you know that?


The stadium is originally called 'Nishigaoka National Soccer Stadium' and is now called 'Ajinomoto Field Nishigaoka'.
We, football fans, usually call it 'Nishigaoka'.



Last week, I went there to see a football match!

140723-1 (Medium).JPG

The match was the 2nd round of this year's Emperor's Cup Tournament.

Emperor's Cup is a competition to decide the "best football team in Japan'', so is open to every member club of the Japan Football Association,
from professional J-League teams to amateur teams such as top college and high school teams all over Japan.

On that day, I saw a match between two J2 (J-League 2nd div.) teams.
Can you see which teams they are from the photo below?


140723-2 (Medium).JPG
140723-3 (Medium).JPG

It was Tokyo Verdy vs Giravantz Kitakyushu.

What is good about this stadium is that it's specified for football!
In Japan, many of the stadiums are not specified for football, so you'll have a running track between the seats and the field.
This stadium is not so big (capacitiy: about 7,000) and you'll be so close to the field.
I could even hear what the coach was shouting out to the players!

There are not so many professional football games held in this stadium, but if you have chance, please visit there♪

[Access]
5-min walk from Motohasunuma station on Toei Subway Mita Line

Daidogei!

Hey everybody! How are you doing?

This is Lars from Sakura Hostel Asakusa again!
This time I would like to share some memories from a festival I went to when I was studying at Shizuoka University in (as you can guess :D) Shizuoka City.
This festival is held every year in November.

The festival is called daidogei (大道芸). There were street performers from all over the world who performed at this festival. Some of the performances were just breathtaking! Like this one guy, he was from china I think. He was doing a performance on a rope with jumps and everything! Have a look:

There is he on top of the rope:
P1000611.JPGAaaaaand jump!
P1000612.JPGAnd another one! Looks like he just fell out of the sky o_o
P1000614.JPGAaaaand he stood it all! Pure awesomeness!
P1000613.JPGBut besides this, there were lot's of different things! Of course lots to eat and to drink too! :P

And costumed people and this cute guy, sorrounded buy amazed kids^^

If you wanna know more about this or even want to see more pictures, talk to me at the reception at Sakura Hostel Asakusa!

See you around! (^_^)v

Information about SUMO Wrestling -Travel Hacks in Japan-

Since I love watching SUMO so much, I'd like to give you the useful information about this awsome Japanese national sport today :)
I'll answer FAQ about SUMO wrestling! Here we go!



1. What is SUMO wrestling?

SUMO wrestling is the national sport of Japan.
Its history has been keeping continued more than 1,500 years ago to the recent times.


b.gif




2. When & where can I watch the SUMO tournament in Japan?

The tournaments are held for 6 times a year.
Actually they're taken place in the 4 different cities in Japan.
Here's the annual schedule for the tournaments :)

4116633119_32a7bd66cd_z.jpgPhoto of alberth2






January : Tournament in TOKYO
February : NO Tournament
March : Tournament in OSAKA
April : NO Tournament
May : Tournament in TOKYO
June : NO Tournament
July : Tournament in NAGOYA
August : NO Tournament
September : Tournament in TOKYO
October : NO Tournament
November : Tournament in FUKUOKA
December : NO Tournament




3. How can I buy the ticket for watching the matches?


We can buy the tickets for the reserved seats a month before the beginning of the tournament.

However, for now there're no official way to buy them online for people who cannot understand Japanese...as long as I know.
You'll need to go to the stadium on the day in the morning and buy them.
Basically to go watch on weekdays is more recommendable because there are more seats comparing weekends.

The range of the price is 14,800 yen (Ringside) - 2,900 yen (Unreserved Seat).

4. Can I take a picture with the wrestlers?

Yes! If you are lucky enough :)
When the tournament is taken place, you can see many wretlers on the street around the city.
Just ask them to take one picture with you!


kaisei.JPGMe & Kaisei in Akihabara!
He's the SUMO wrestler from Brazil :)



5. If I would like to go see the training, how can it be possible?



For the first information, the training of SUMO is started from very early morning like 7:00AM.
And the wrestlers and the master of SUMO stable are training very seriously and strictly.
Therefore if you cannot respect it, I strongly don't recommend to go see it.



Basically the majority of SUMO stables are NOT so friendly to welcome the foreign tourists to the training because they are not used to deal with the foreigners.
If you go there with the person who can understand Japanese very well, I think that's no problem.
We, Sakura Hostel Asakusa sometimes offer the event "SUMO STABLE VISIT" for our guests.


DSCN4037.JPG


The event can abe planned in April, August, and December as the SUMO stable where we visit do the training only in these months in TOKYO.
Please check our event here :) To read the blog of the event, please click HERE!

If you are coming Japan, don's miss SUMO.
You can feel Japanese soul & culture through this exciting sport :)
