A nice cafe not to far from Sakura Hostel Asakusa!

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

This time I will talk about one of my favorite topics again. This:

32952953_fba788e6eb_b.jpg(Source:?https://www.flickr.com/photos/poyang/32952953/)

I will introduce a nice and really cool cafe to you! Also, it is ont far from our hostel! It is very close to Monzen Nakacho Station. If you need further help to find it, ask me at the reception! (:


The interior design of the cafe is simple but modern. It has nice warm brown colors and the light supports a warm atmosphere inside the cafe. They used lot's of wood for the interior. I always think wood makes a nice warm atmosphere. I love that! ^_^


Here is the link to the website:

>>>Monz Cafe<<<

If you are a fan of nice cafes besides all the chains (which have really nice branches too in some places!), you should definitely consider going there!

See you around! (^_^)v

Chibi Maruko Chan Land!

Hi there! This is Lars from Sakura Hostel Asakusa again!

This time in the blog I would like to introduce something very cute to you! It may be more for kids, but I would still like to show it to you.

When I went to University in Japan one year as an exchange student, I actually lived in Shizuoka City. Right next to this city, there is a city called Shimizu, which is famous for a couple of things! One of those are the S-Pulse, the football (for the Americans, soccer :P) team. Another one is this:


262838946_2877e5a696_m.jpg(Source:?https://www.flickr.com/photos/78619693@N00/262838946/)

Do you know her? It's Chibi Maruko Chan! A cartoon about a school girl who actually lives in the small town called Shimizu! And since she is living there, there is a special place called Chibi Maruko Chan Land in Shimizu.

It's not actually an amusement park or something like this, but a part of a department store themed like the cartoon and they of couse sell lots of lots of merchandise! But if you like Chibi Maruko Chan it is definitely worth a visit! (:

Well if you are in that area sometime, just go there and ave a look!

See you around! (^_^)v

【Culture info】 Dharma doll --Best Backpackers Hostel In Tokyo, Sakura Hostel Asakusa--


Danbo vs Daruma #2 / Takashi(aes256)

Hello, everyone.
This is Yusa from Sakura hostel Asakura.

Do you know Dharma doll?
That's a Japanese traditional stuff related to superstition.
That's because it's little bit similar to Manekineko which I mentioned last time.

In fact, the form of Dharma is based of "Dharma" who established a one of Buddhist school.
You can see that many Dharma don't have black eyes.
It's because we paint eyes after achieving aim or wish.

Also Dharma doesn't have Arms and legs.
It's because there is a legend that Buddhist Dharma's arms and legs are rotten because he doesn't stop to pray for 9 years.

Most of all Dharma in Japan are colored by red.
We believe that red is the color which prevents devil, means bad luck.

Dharma is a one of traditional stuff of fortune.
How about buying a one?

Kill Bill Restaurant!

Hi there!
This is Lars from Sakura Hostel Asakusa again!


This time I have to write about something I actually learned from guests of our hostel! Thank you so much! (:
It's about the Kill Bill restaurant! It's actual name is Gonpachi!

The restaurant looks like the one where the crazy fighting scene in the movie Kill Bill takes action! Although it is not the restaurant where they shot the actual scene (since the restaurant in the movie was a set only built for the movie), it is the restaurant which inspired Quentin Tarantino to shoot the scene like he did! So of course he was a guest there! (: I love all his movies, so I would love to go there!

Take a look at some pictures:

9524345625_85ae86fcc2_h.jpg(Source:https://www.flickr.com/photos/mssarakelly/9524345625/)

It looks very much like it, doesn't it?

But you actually have to make a reservation in advance to get in there I guess, since it is pretty popular.

If you are a fan, you should have dinner there one time!

See you around! (^_^)v

【Culture info】Maneki neko --Best Backpackers Hostel In Tokyo, Sakura Hostel Asakusa--


The Fortune Cats 招き猫 - Brighton Japan Festival and Matsuri ブライ卜ン曰本フェステイバル祭 / Dominic's pics" /> Sakura hostel Asakura.

Do you know Manekineko? (Welcome cat)
That's a kind of a figure of Fortune made with cat's figure.

The cat who raise a right hand calls Money.
The cat who raise a left hand calls people.

There are several colours.
In fact, meanings are different every colours, such as for health, safety, study and more....

And you might find the cat who raise both hands.
However, we sometimes think that is no good for fortune.
Because that's too much greed, you know.
In the case of Manekineko, little wish is better.

We are often asked "Where can I buy Manekineko"?
You would find that on Nakamise street which has many souvenir shops.

Yeah, If you put Manekineko on your house, He might call big luck for you!
