[Tokyo Info] Kichijoji - Exciting but Relaxing Town [Tokyo Backpackers Hostel]

Hi there! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
This morning, I visited a town called Kichijoji located in west part of Tokyo.
It's about 15 min by JR train from Shinjuku, and about 50 min from our hostel.

141031-1.jpgThe area is very different in the north and south side of the station.
The picture above is North exit of Kichijoji station, and it's very busy all the time.
There are 2 long shopping streets and I could find many people shopping even in the morning.

141031-10.jpg141031-12.jpg

Let's move on to the south side.
The south exit is called 'Park Exit'.
Yes, they have a big park in Kichijoji. Maybe some of youmight have heard about it...

It's Inokashira Park?!

141031-4.jpgThe leaves are beginning to turn yellow, and will be much more beautiful in November, I guess.

They have a big lake and you can ride boats.

141031-5.jpgSwan boats are available as well!

141031-7.jpg


They also have a zoo, a shrine,
141031-6.jpgand one more thing you cannot miss in this area is...


141031-8.jpg
GHIBLI MUSEUM ! !


However, you need to make a reservation to enter this museum.
If you're reserving the ticket after you arrive in Japan (1 week before or so), it's usually too late.
They start the sale on the 1st day 2 month before the date!
There are also ways to reserve it from abroad, so make sure to check the info on their official website.

If you succeed in reserving the ticket, please explore the town of Kichijoji, and I'm sure you'll like this exciting but relaxing town!

See you around ^^

[News] Our guest was on Japanese TV! [Tokyo Friendly Hostel]

Hi there! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.

Today, we have a big news for you!

Last Monday, our guest was on Japanese TV!

The program is called ''Youは何しに日本へ?''(Why did you come to Japan?).

banner.png


Its main content is interview to foreign visitors at the international airport in Tokyo,
and one of our guests Mr. Armando was interviewed in September.

We had been wondering if he would be on air or not, and finally, he is!!


141026-1.PNG

He is a member of team USA attending the worldwide karate competition in Tokyo.?

141026-2.PNG

141026-5.PNG

He demonstrated his karate kick at the airport!

141026-3.PNG

141026-4.PNG

(It looks like his foot is hitting the interviewer's head, but it isn't. Just close!)

This TV program is really popular in Japan, and recently there are more programs focusing on you, foreign visitors to Japan, so you might be interviewed during your stay in Japan!
If you're interviewed, please ask the name of the TV program and tell us on your visit to our hostel!
We'll check the program and let you know even if it's on air after you go back home.


See you around^^

[Sightseeing in Tokyo] Free observation tower in Shinjuku [Tokyo Friendly Hostel]

Hi all! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.

This week I went to Shinjuku for annual medical check, and the place was right next to one of the observation tower...

Yes, that is Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building!

141024-11.jpg
Did you know they have a free observation room?
It's located on the 45th floor, 202 meter high!

They have 2 towers, North and South, and this time I went up the North tower.
Here's the view!

141024-9.jpgI wished it was not rainy... X(

The North Observation also has a souvenir shop and restaurant.

141024-6.jpg141024-7.jpg
The difference of North and South tower is that North has more shops and south has wider view.
You have to go back to the 1st floor to visit another one, but please visit both if you have time.
What is good about this observation is you can also enjoy the night view because North tower is open by 11 pm (entrance by 10:30 pm).
I've been there at night before, of course on a day with clear sky, and it was so beautiful!!

After you go back to the 1st floor, there's a good place to get information on sightseeing in Tokyo.

141024-4.jpgThat is Tokyo Tourist Information Center, where I used to work before!
They have many brochures from all over Tokyo, in Japanese, English or in other languages, and staffs at the counter will answer your questions in different languages too.

141024-5.jpgOn the 2nd floor, they have another information 'Japanese Prefectural Promotion Center'.

141024-3.jpg
In their shelves, you can find many kinds of brochures from all over Japan. (mostly in Japanese but some are in other languages)?

141024-1.jpgAs it is 'Japanese Prefectural Promotion Center', they often have a fair to sell the local specialities from different prefecture in Japan.
On that day, various kinds of seafood from Toyama prefecture had been sold there.


141024-2.jpgLast of all, I will tell you one secret spot to eat in this building...?

That is their cafeteria!
It was originally for workers in the building, but is now open to public too.
Both North and South tower have one each on the 32nd floor, and you can enjoy lunch in reasonable price with a good view!

141024-10.jpgWell, this is all for today!
As I was working in this area for 2 years, please ask me anytime about West Shinjuku :D

See you around♪
