The trip to Prince Edward Island -- Best Backpackers Hostel In Tokyo, Sakura Hostel Asakusa-

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

               

While I was staying in Canada, I visited PEI which is famous for Canadian novel, Anne of Green gables.

Actually, that's one of my purpose to stay in Canada.

In fact, Anne of green gables is set in this small island.

I really love this novel.

That's why, this island became my dream island, you know.

               

I was really impressed by this story's animation when I was 20 years old.

This anime was directed by Isao Takahata who is well known as a director of The grave of Fireflies.

This island seemed like a ideal countryside for me.

I dicided to visit there someday.

I really enjoyed watching popular musical "Anne of green gables"!

Blue sky, Green field....

14482408110_a3a9151f7f_o.jpg

And Clear blue ocean.......14482438739_43ea932c49_k.jpg

Monumental staion.

This station was appeared on anime.

               

I heard that canadian were surprised, because lots of Japanese visit this small island.

The reason why we want to visit there is Anne of Green gables!

At least 3000 person visit there every year.

Canadian government expects that over 10,000 person come to this island next year because of broadcasting drama, "Hanako to Anne".

               

I also definitely go back to this island someday!

[Japan Info] Trip to Aomori -Part 5- [Tokyo Friendly Hostel]

Hi! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
Finally, here's the Part 5, final episode of my travel journal!

If you haven't read the Part 1-4, read them first
>> Part 1 <<
>> Part 2 <<
>> Part 3 <<
>> Part 4 <<

Last time, I was at Ajigasawa town in Aomori pref.
From Ajigasawa station, I took JR Gonō Line to the south again.

140919-1.JPG


My next destination was Fukaura sta.
There was a small terrace right in front of the station.

140919-6.JPG
Here is the view from the this terrace...

140919-7.JPG

How beautiful!!

I only had 1 hour by the time I take the next train back to Shin-Aomori station, so it was kinda pity that I couldn't just sit and relax in this seaside terrace...

Instead, I visited one local restaurant called ''Sailing'' for my late lunch.

140919-5.JPGTheir speciality ''Fukaura Maguro Steak Don'' (tuna steak bowl) was so tasty!!

140919-3.JPG
140919-4.JPGThe owner couple were so nice and I really enjoyed both the dish and conversation with them.

After that I rode train back to Shin-Aomori station.
I took normal local train on the way there, but on the way back, I took a special train ''Resort Shirakami''.

140919-11.JPG

As well as their normal seat, they have relaxing box seats with wider window. Good for groups or families!
140919-8.JPG140919-12.JPGI was going to enjoy the sunset view from the train... but I was too tired and sleepy to stay up for whole way X(

From Shin-Aomori back to Tokyo, I took Shinkansen (bullet train).?
This is one of the newly designed car, and it was my first time to ride on it. So excited! (But of course I fell asleep lol)

140919-10.JPG
Well, this is all for my first trip to Aomori prefecture!
Thank you for reading all through my loooong journal!

See you around^^

【Yokohama is different atmosphere from Tokyo】-I went to the aquarium in Yokohama.

Did you go to sea or pool on this summer?

Finally I haven't been anywhere on this summer time, I have worked at the Sakura Hotel almost every day.

I remembered that I went to go aquarium last summer.

These pictures as below were taken in the Yokohama Hakkeijima sea world.

This is Japanese native turtle, walking around my house and make us trouble a lot...

But He is so cute!!

I very like pets not even turtle!

Last year was 20th anniversary there.

If you have chance to go to Yokohama, this city is by the seaside.

A lot of marin spot and marin souvenirs there.

Also yokohama has a defferent atmosphere from Tokyo.

I usually leave for to Yokohama, even thogh I am living in Saitama.

[Japan Info] Trip to Aomori -Part 4- [Tokyo Friendly Hostel]

Hi! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
Have you already enjoyed my travel journal?

If you haven't read the Part 1 -3, read them first
>> Part 1 <<
>> Part 2 <<

>> Part 3 <<

Today, I'm going to write about my travel on JR Gonō Line.

train_side_box1_1_img.pngI was going to travel from the start (Kawabe sta. in Aomori pref.) to the end (Higashi-noshiro sta. in Akita pref.), but when I visited there, a part of this line was out of service due to the landslide by heavy rain.

So, this time I only traveled north part of Gonō Line.
Starting with this white and blue train♪

140914-2.JPGMy first destination is Ajigasawa town.
I rent a bicycle at tourist information right in front of Ajigasawa station.

140914-3.JPG
Let's go!!



140914-4.JPG
After riding for 5 minutes... I could easily get to the seaside.
Looking down the Gonō Line rail and seashore from uphill... so beautiful!
140914-5.JPGHere was my destination, a dried squid (Ajigasaki's speciality) shop called ''Kikuya Shouten''.

140914-10.JPG140914-6.JPG

I went there to see him!
WASAO, the famous Akita Dog!

140914-7.JPG
He became famous in Japan several years ago because of his ''busa-kawaii'' looking (bad looking but still cute).

He looked very smart and was so cute!
Akita Dog is known as a very smart and loyal kind of dog as you can see in the movie ''Hachi: A Dog's Tale''.

I also met his fiancee, Tsubaki!

140914-8.JPG

After meeting this cute couple and tasting delicious squid, I rode bike around seaside park and went back to the station.

Well, my travel on JR Gonō Line still goes on!

See you next time♪

A couple of Pictures from my Year in Canada!

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

How are you doing? Let us know via Twitter or Facebook! (:

This time I would like to share some pictures with you, which I took while I lived in Canada. Actually, mostly of my trips to the Rocky Mountains, because they were beautiful!
Just like the mountains here in Japan, as you can see in this Blog entry!

I lived in Edmonton, where it was really really cold in winter (we had -40 degress..). If it's that cold, 0 degress will feel warm to you! :D Most of the time everything was full of snow. But in Summer, everything looked really awesome!

The winter here in Japan is not that cold. Well at least in Tokyo it is not, so you can still do a lot of Sightseeing then! Come and visit us here in Tokyo in winter too!
Make a reservation on our website!

Sakura Hostel Asakusa

Here are a couple of pictures:

P1010674.JPGP1010713.JPGP1010720.JPGP1010730.JPG
Do you know this famous spot?

P1010763.JPG
I had a wonderful time in Canada, even though it was cold. I am always super happy if we have guests from Canada and we can chat a little.
I am 100% sure that you will have a wonderful time in Japan too! Come and visit! (:

See you around! (^_^)v
