Hello all!

As I have mentioned before, Japan has a vast variety of sweets. 
We stumbled across this rarity the other day!



I'm actually not entirely sure of what exactly this is to be honest....
Is a fusion of mochi (Japanese glutinous rice) and custard pudding...

Why, you ask?

Because it's Japan!!!


Until next time!

New snacks!

Hello all!

As you may or may not know, here at Sakura Hotel Jimbocho we are all huge beer lovers!
(Especially me)

But up until now there was just something missing...SNACKS! When you have that ice
cold pint of golden beer goodness, you would most certainly need something salty to wash 
that beer down.

So we started selling the PERFECT partner for your beer:


We have two flavours:

Garlic (mmmm...might be a good idea to stay away from if on a date...)


Jalapeno! (Not for those with weak stomachs... They sure are an eye opener!)

And that's all for now

Until next time

Hello all!

Do you know Akiba ?  Maybe most of you know it as Akihabara, the "electric town".
And also famous for Manga, Anime, Otaku, computer games, maid café's just to mention a few....
Akihabara is not so far from Sakura Hotel Jimbocho. You can actually go on foot. 
However, if you are anything like me, slow and lazy, keep reading this blog to find out how ti get there by tube!

World tea!

Hullo all!

Have you tried our World Tea yet? no? 
Alright..let me introduce a little bit about our World Tea.

"Green Mate Tea"


Mate Tea is is a traditional South American infused drink and called Drinkable Salad because it is very healthy for your body.It is served with metal straw and cup. It has a lot of mate leaves in the cup, so you have to suck the liquid from the bottom of the cup.

The taste is a little bitter but kind of addictive, and it really  makes you wake up. We also have Mate Dolce which is a sweet mate tea.
If you are interested why don't you try it at our Cafe!

Until next time!

Hello all!

All of you who have been to Japan, would have to have noticed the copious amount of sweeties they have.
Well, some of these sweets, as innocent as they may taste and be, their naming might give you a slightly...off putting image...

My favourite is:


Yes, you heard (read) me. Collon! Ok, so the spelling is sublimely different, but once you see the product you know someone must have been messing with the company when they were giving the product its name.

So, the most graphical one is:


Do you see my point?

One of my favourite flavours are:


And a resent flavour that is limited for the Hokkaido area:


Camembert cheese collon!
There are also strawberry collon, Japanese green tea collon and 
lemon collon.
Don't you just want to run out and buy them right away!

So there you have it. An all time favourite (especially for children)!

Until next time
