This time I would like to let you know about the just recently opened Final Fantasy themed cafe in Akihabara (where else :P).
It is called Eorzea Cafe, here is the official website:

>>>Eorzea Cafe<<<

It actually just opened on the 31st of July, so it is brand new!


If you would like to go there, you need to go there early, since you need a ticket to get in.

They only give out entrance tickets until 10 AM, so you will need to go there pretty early to get one. I assume it is kind of busy, since Final Fantasy is very veeeeery famous! ^^

It is currently not possible to make a reservation, so the only way for you to get in is to wait.
If you get in you have two ours to enjoy the nice atmosphere and the interesting menu!

If you would like to go there, ask at the reception for directions!


See you around! (^_^)v

It is an annual event here in Asakusa and this time it is the 33rd time that this event is held.

[Japan Info] Traveling to Ehime prefecture [Tokyo Backpackers Hostel]

Hi everyone! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.

Today, I'll write about my past travel experience to EHIME prefecture.

Do you know where EHIME pref is?
Ehime is in Shikoku Island in the west part of Japan, and is close to Hiroshima.

Ehime.png
The area is very warm throughout the year (too hot in summer), but has very famous onsen (hot spring) called ''Dougo Onsen''.

140822-4.JPGDougo Onsen is famous for its historical bathhouse known as a model of the main building in Ghibli movie ''Spirited Away''.

It is close to the center of Matsuyama city, capital of Ehime pref., and you can get there by city tram.

If we, Japanese hear the name ''EHIME'', there's another thing most of us think of.

That is MIKAN ! (mandarin orange)

Ehime is widely known as the biggest producer of mikan in Japan.


You know what they are?
140822-1.JPGEven the mascot of Ehime FC (J-league 2nd div.) are oranges!!

Do you collect things?

Hey everybody!
How are you doing?

This is Lars from Sakura Hostel Asakusa again!

This time I would like to talk about something I most certainly spent too much money on. But it's fun! :D
We all like anime and games and all that, don't we?

But do you buy lot's of merchandise? Well I do...
Since I came to Japan I started spending more and more money for things like this:

DSC_0246.jpgThis for example is my key chain^^ I don't put too many of these figures on there, because it gets too big, but I got much more. :D
He is pulling my key chain! ^^ You all know him!

But do you know him too?

DSC_0249.jpg
And this here is actually one of my favorites! :D This is called Lucy, but you know who it really is, don't you?

DSC_0247.jpgHe is smiling like always!^^

Do you have some of these yourself?

And you know what? The best place to buy these is Akihabara! And Akihabara happens to be only 5-10min away from our hostel! If you go there and buy some, show them to me at the reception! ^_^

See you around! (^_^)v

Sadly Bon Dance was washed out by the bad weather...
We were really disappointed by that, but there was another event by Sumida River on the same night.
So lucky!


In the event, people float the paper lantern on the river to wish a peace for the spirits of the dead.

Everybody there enjoyed the fantastic scenery and was feeling that Summer will end soon...


Thank you very much for joining us!
Hope to see you next event <3
