Hi there! Konnichiwa.
This is Shikamai from Sakura Hotel Ikebukuo.

Today I would love to share one of the good Japanese word with you.
That is ほっこり Hokkori. Have you heard it?
For example we would say like "This picture is ほっこり hokkori"

A pesar de todo el frío que ha hecho este febrero estamos en marzo con unas temperaturas máximas de unos 20 grados, así que parece que este año el florecimiento de los cerezos se adelantará un poco más de lo habitual.


Curioso tren que me encontré el otro día en la estación de Shinjuku. Ya no debe circular habitualmente porque había mucha gente haciendole fotos y además estaba totalmente vacío, supongo que sería algún tipo de demostración, evento o algo por el estilo.


Cementerio ubicado en un hueco entre un parking y un edificio de viviendas. En medio de la ciudad te puedes encontrar muchos pequeños cementerios, estos lugares no están apartados ni en las afueras, conviven con el paisaje habitual junto con las casas y comercios.

You know, Ginza is one of the most luxurious shopping districts in Japan.
It's like the 5th avenue of New York.
And its land price is often the highest as is the case with the 5th avenue.
Naturally, If you wanna play around there at night, you should be loaded,
except that you drink at one of our group company's bars, 300BAR.

Helloo Konnichiwa--!
Thisi is Shikamai Sakura ikebukuro staff.

Ikebkuro is a very busy and exciting city.
It is great for shopping, enjoying food something.
But I think if you stay for long time here, you would miss a calm place.

I know some good places so I'm going to share one of them with you today.
Look at this peaceful photo.


It is Zoushigaya Kishimojin-do 雑司ヶ谷鬼子母神堂. Very old temple.
