ピーターが今回宿泊したのはソネスタFLLビーチホテルでした!

So we stayed at Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach hotel !

1211sonestaIMG_0181

夜になると色鮮やかになりますね!

The reception is quite colorful ! it becomes like this at night !

1211sonestaIMG_0182

クリスマス気分ですかね?! でも好きでした!

Christmas mood ? Maybe ?! but I liked it !

1211sonestaIMG_0192

24時間プール

They have 24 hours Pool

1211sonestaIMG_0190

24時間ジムがあります!サクラホテルにもいつか作りたいですね!

こういう施設は勉強になります!

Also 24 hours Gym ! I want these kind of facilities in Sakura Hotel as well ,

maybe we will try to build it in the future !

1211sonestaIMG_0185

そして部屋はこんな感じでした!ゆったりした空間で快適でした!

The room was like this, it was quite spacious and comfy !

1211sonestaIMG_0200

部屋からのビュー!

ビーチがすぐ隣にあり、ギャレリアショッピングモールも徒歩10分以内ので、

ロケーションはすごく便利です!

This was the view from my room ! beach was just a few minutes walk, also the Galleria Shopping mall was within 10 minutes of walk.

The location was amazing !

1211sonestaIMG_0208

そして朝食は確か朝6時半からだと思います。

Their breakfast time I think it starts at 6:30 !

1211sonestaIMG_0207

主にパンが多いのですが、種類が多いですね!

They offer many different kinds of bread !

1211sonestaIMG_0206

パンの以外にフルーツとソーセージ、ベーコンなどがありました。

other than bread, they also offer fruits and hot meals such as bacon and sausages.

1211sonestaIMG_0209

クルージングに備えて!エネルギーをいっぱい作りましょう!

あそういえばアメリカに行くとチップスをたくさん渡さなきゃいけないので、

1ドルをたくさん事前用意をしましょう!

So before going cruising, I suggest you to take a good rest, because there are a lot of things to do onboard !

BE PREPARED !

【スタッフブログ 】私の大好きな街イギリス・ハロゲート?【Staff Blog】My favourite place Harrogate in the UK?

Trainee 5496

Posted by: Trainee

こんばんわ!サクラホテル神保町Kanaeです!!

Good evening!! This is Kanae from SAKURA HOTEl JIMBOCHO

今日は私が2年前に住んでいたイギリスの小さな町についてご紹介?

イギリスのちょうどど真ん中にあたる、ヨークシャー地方

ハリーポッターで有名な【ヨーク】と大きな大学のある【リーズ】の間にある

(ヨークとリーズに関しても今度ご紹介しますね♪♪)

【ハロゲート】

I wanna introduce about small lovely town in the UK where i lived there 2 years ago!!

There is middle of England in Yorkshire.

Between YORK and LEEDS!!

【HARROGATE】

Harrogate (6)

日本ではあまり知名度はないかもしれませんが、

イギリスで一番幸福な町 ランキングNo.1に何度も輝いたこともある、

とっても安全で素敵な街なんです??

I think there is not that famous.

but very beautiful and safe town:)

Harrogate (8)

友達と飲みに行った帰り深夜2時ごろ一人で歩いて帰れました、?

(真似はしないでね。笑)

でも、街灯が少ないので路駐から真っ暗。携帯のライトが頼りでした!!

When I was there, I have walk back to home by myself around 2AM!!

(Don't try this.haha)

There are not many street lights so I used my phone's light!!

resizeHarrogate (10) - コピー

↑↓ハロゲートのナレスボロ/Knaresborough in Harrogate

resizeHarrogate (9) - コピー

駅なんて改札もないような小さな駅ですが、とってもかわいらしいんです。

The station is so small like no gate...but soooooooooooo lovely.

そしてハロゲートに行く観光客の目的に一つはこちらでしょう。

老舗のティールーム【ベティーズ】

And If you go to Harrogate, you had to go to....

【Betty's】

Harrogate (4)

なんと1919年にできたそうです。

これこそイングリッシュ アフターヌーンティー です。

お値段も張ります。でも、十分すぎる量もあります。

絶対そんはしません。

The Betty's in Harrogate opend in 1919!!!

This is the English Afternoontea?

It is expensive and many cakes and sandwiches!!

It's worth going to there!!!!

Harrogate (3)

優雅な気分を是非味わってみてください??

そしてそして、、、

ななななななななななななんと!!!!!

そんな小さな街ハロゲートからのゲストが★★☆☆

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand!!

we got this guests from HARROGATE!!

DM9_2aHXcAAbq4U

彼は1年間いろんな国を旅し、東京そして私があった日が世界旅行の最終日!!

まさか、この度の最後の最後の日にハロゲートに住んでた人と会うなんて思わなかったよ?と

え、信じられない!!!の連発でした。(笑)

久しぶりにハロゲートの話で大盛り上がりでした?

さて、またいつかハロゲートの人と出会えるかな!??

He traveled in the world for 1 year and tokyo was the last location and that is his last day in tokyo!!

I couldn't believe that!! and he said many many times.haha

We could talk about Harrogate a lot:) It was really good time ?

Thank you for choosing this hotel !!

Hope i will see a guests who is from HARROGATE again.....?

今回はイギリスのヒースロー空港(LHR)にあるスカイチームラウンジに行きました!

Today I am telling you about the Sky Team Lounge in Heathrow Airport (LHR)

LHRIMG_2474

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

今回もまた質の高いラウンジに出会えました!

This is another High Quality Lounge that I have encountered recently !

LHRIMG_2486

さすがスカイチームです!

Sky Team Lounge was amazing !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

LHRIMG_2478

入口に入ると綺麗なお姉さんが二人いて!しかしイギリス人って美人が多いですね!

This is their entrance and there were 2 beautiful staffs at the counter really welcoming !

LHRIMG_2479

そして!まさかの2フロアまであるという!

すごく広いスペースですよ!

It was unbelievable ! This Lounge has 2 floors !

It was enormous ! Really Spacious !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

LHRIMG_2480

そしてゲームも出来る!ワオ!さすがスカイチーム!ちゃんと他のラウンジとの差別化をはかっていますね!

Also they provide free TV Games in the lounge, so this is what differs them from the others !

Brilliant Idea I must say !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

LHRIMG_2488

ここをラウンジだけのスペースとして使うのは非常にもったいないですね!(笑)

本当に広々とした空間ですね!

But I was quite shocked by the space they have in the lounge !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

LHRIMG_2482

そしてビュッフェバーもォシャンティー!食べ物もかなり揃っています!

スナック、フルーツ、スープ!サラダ等ももちろん全部!そして妻の大好きなシュリンプもありましたよ!

About their buffet counter ! it was amazing ! So many choices of food, drinks, soup, salad and etc !

they were also providing shrimps as well !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

LHRIMG_2492

ソフトドリンクだけではなく、瓶ビールも沢山チョイスがあります!本当に【やばいーー!】と言いたくなる瞬間が何回もラウンジンに経験致しました。

They do not only provide soft drinks ! they also provide bottle beers here ! they sure have a good wide selection of beers here !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

LHRIMG_2487

サラダバーもかなり品物が豊富でやばー!

also their salad bar is quite big !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

LHRIMG_2491

ローストビーフ!サラミ!チーズ!全部ピーターの大好物!オーマイガー!

Roast Beef, Salami, Cheese ! They are all my favorite ! Oh my god !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

LHRIMG_2493

そしてさっそくワンプレートをとりました!これから長いフライトがあるので、ちゃんと摂取せんと!

So this what I had before taking the flight !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

LHRIMG_2490

ちなみにこのラウンジには映画鑑賞のテレビ室があります。

By the way, they have a TV lounge here !

LHRIMG_2489

食堂はやっぱり人が歩いているし、おしゃべりもしているので、

中々落ち着かないので、TVラウンジなら!落ち着いて映画が見れます!

At the plain lounge, it was quite noisy, since there were a lot of people eating, talking and walking around,

so if you need a quiet space, there you go ! here at the TV lounge!

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

LHRIMG_2483

ワインも、カクテルももちろん!揃っています!

Forgot to mention that they also offer Wine and Cocktails !

今日はミネアポリス空港にあるEscape Loungeを紹介したいと思います。

Today I am going to introduce you the Escape Lounge in MSP Minneapolis Airport !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

escapeloungeMSPIMG_1850

さすがアメリカです!街だけではなく、ラウンジもすごく大きいです!

USA never let me down, everything is L size there and even the Lounges !

escapeloungeMSPIMG_1854

しかもレベルも非常高くてびっくりしました!

I was really surprised !

The decorations are quite nice and high quality !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

食べ物の種類がたくさんありすぎてびっくりしました。

Also the variety of food that you can get in here is amazing !

escapeloungeMSPIMG_1855

サラダとヨーグルトバー!

They offer Salad Bar and also Yogurt !

escapeloungeMSPIMG_1859

そしてサラミとチーズ!美味そう!!

Tons of Salamis and Cheeses ! these were pretty good !

escapeloungeMSPIMG_1871

サンドイッチとミニハンバーガーもあります!どれでも肉がたっぷり!

今後アメリカに行ったら、空港のフードコートでわざわざ食べなくても大丈夫です!

ラウンジでお腹がいっぱいになりますからね。

They also offer sandwiches and hamburgers ! and they were filled with lots of meat !

It really makes me think that there is no need to go to any food court before getting onboard !

Just to go any of the lounges in USA ! I am pretty sure that you will not get out of here being hungry !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

escapeloungeMSPIMG_1852

なぜかアメリカの室内は非常に寒いです!飛行機内もそうですが。。。

おそらく西洋人の体温に相応しい温度調整をしているので、アジア人の我々には寒いですね!

でもこのラウンジには暖かいスープがあり!スープを飲んで体を温めことができます!

But there is one thing that I found out in USA, any indoor facility I go, I always feel kind of cold,

maybe the temperature they set in USA is suitable for western people, but not for asian people I guess.

but dont worry, they offer Hot Soup here in the Lounge so you can warm yourself up !

sakura logo for blog2016.6.22

escapeloungeMSPIMG_1862

しかもドリンク以外にフルーツもスイーツもあり、全部食べ飲み放題です!

Besides the soft drinks they offer, they also offer real coffee and tea basg !

escapeloungeMSPIMG_1860

Also fruits and they are All you can eat and drink ! HOW AWESOME !

素晴らしくないですか!!

French antique event and lovely food in Daikanyama

Trainee 5283

Posted by: Trainee

Hello! This is Hawker! During my off day, i went to my favourite place again in Tokyo again towards Daikanyama!

Initially I just wanted to have a lunch at one of the best restaurant around the corner!

Its called IVY PLACE. Do check it out if you have the time! They serve really good meals and dessert there

どもー!ホーカーだよ!休みの時、また東京で一番すきな代官山に行ってきた!代官山にある IVY PLACEっていう有名なレストランに行ってきた!ご飯もデザートもとても美味しいので、試してみてくださいね!

https://www.tysons.jp/ivyplace/en/

(They have different variety of menus available. They change menu for breakfast, lunch & Dinner, weekdays & weekends)

I ordered grilled pork loin! Its really really good! (こっちのポークロインはめちゃくちゃ美味い!)

image3

Good food, Good atmosphere = Happy hawker! (美味しいごはん、おしゃれな雰囲気 = 幸せほーかー)

Without knowing beforehand, Daikanyama was actually having a French antique event where there were having bazaar that sells almost anything from really antique furnitures,clothes,accessories and others from the year 1910~1950's! (当日はたまたまフランスアンティークのイベントがやってた!1910?1950年の家具、服、玩具が売ってたっよ!)

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Check out their clothing bazaar!

After our shopping, we were too tired to move, so we just stopped by for a cup of creme brulee to charge up the day! I apologize for the lack of pictures as my phone was out of battery! But for anyone who is interested in the event, here's the link below for more details. They organize the same event yearly.

http://real.tsite.jp/daikanyama/event/2016/10/nominoichi-08-daikanyama.html

Cheers, and have a nice day!

P.S: By the way, this week will mark my last week in Sakura hotel Jimbocho as a trainee. I will be posted to another Sakura hotel's branch. Thank you everyone for being really friendly with me during your stay in Jimbocho! I hope i have made your stay a little more comfortable! Lastly, we will be organizing a meet-up marathon run! Do join if you have the time!

Indonesia Trip Part III

Trainee 5279

Posted by: Trainee

無題-211x300Selamat Siang! This is Hawker again writing the blog for the 3rd time this week!

I hope all of you have enjoyed the Indonesia trip series! Today, lets continue towards the part III towards the journey!

This time, I would like to give a special shout out to all the friends who love mountain climbing or in fact anyone who just loves nature !

こんにちは!ホーカーです!今週3回目のブログ!今までインドネシア旅のブログは如何でしたか?さて、インドネシアVOL.3の旅を続けようか!今回山登り・自然が好きの友達たちにいいところを紹介させて頂きます!

Introducing Indonesia's most active volcano with extremely gorgeous sunrise. Mount Bromo!

Here's are the a few tips before getting there.

1- Nearest Airport to land (ブロモから一番近い空港)

Fly to Surabaya, it is one of the largest cities in Indonesia. Everything would be so much more accessible compared to other cities such as Malang.

2- What to wear? (服はどうするか?)

Indonesia, in general is always hot with an average temperature of 30 degrees and above in the afternoon.

However, take note that you will NEED winter clothing in up in Mount Bromo! Early in the morning , the temperature reaches all the way down to Zero degree celcius.

(Yes! I'm not kidding, and i actually learnt the hard way by not bringing any warm clothes. I had to buy their overpriced clothes)

インドネシアは1年あたり平均の温度は30度以上だけど、ブロモに行く方は必ず必ず必ず冬の服も持ってきてくださいね!!ブロモの朝はさすがに0度ぐらいになる!とても寒い。何も知らないの私は夏の服しか持っていなかったので、氷になりそうぐらい震えてた!結局現場で超高くて、ダサい服を買うしかなかった:(

3- Where is the best place and what should i do ? (ブロモでどこ・何がオススメ?)

If you are not the type of person who likes to go adventure by yourself, the best option is to hire guides once you get to Mount Bromo.

The price is approximately 15,000 yen (around 130 USD) for a one day trip + drivers with jeep that treks almost anywhere. ( Please take note that this you are recommended to tip them as well)

The whole journey would consist 4 different places.

They are The Peak to see the sunrise, Crater, Pasir Berbisik (Dessert), and Savana

迷子にならないように、ベストオップションはガイドを採用すること!ガイドは現場でお願い出来るので、何も心配しなくてもいいOK! ガイド代は約15,000円(一日のガイド+クルマ)

Here's us trying to rush to get to the peak to see the sunrise! Look at how thick the mist could get!

Waiting for the sunrise! I look so bad with my clothes coordination! I did not bring my winter clothing and i had to pay such a premium price by buying right at the mountain! Remember to bring thick winter clothes when you are here!

The second part of our journey at the crater! Right in the middle is our guide, Pak Heboh. (Which means Mr. Marvelous literally). Finally the weather got better and it started getting warmer.

The 3rd part of the journey at Pasir Berbising, which means the whispering sands. This place is definitely my favorite place out of the 4 courses! Who could have guess that there is actually a huge dessert right in the middle of the volcano.

Last but not least, the 4th course at Savanah! Earlier back we were exploring a dessert that does not consist any life. On the other side of the volcano, Savannah is a a place that boast its greeneries! The local people call this place teletubbies land because it looks just like where teletubbies live!

It is impossible to describe how beautiful Mount Bromo is until you actually see it with your own eyes.The whole package is so un-describable !I hope you enjoyed this part too!

それで、また次の旅だね!

無題-211x300Hello! This is Hawker once again writing Sakura hotel Jimbocho's Blog. A few of my friends will be coming to Japan for their first time, and they came out with a question that i have never thought about!

'What are the Top Not to do Things in Japan'? Let me share them with you

どーも、ホーカーです。来月は日本に行ったことがない友達たちが遊びに来ます!その前にたまたま'日本で行けないこと' という課題を話したので、皆さんにもぜひ紹介したい!

IMG_0094

1- Do not walk with your shoes in the house! (家の中で靴はノーノー)

House in Japan usually have a small space before entering the house called 'genkan'. It is a place where guests get to remove their shoes, and house slippers are usually given by the house owner to move in the house.

Bonus: At most places, there are even special slippers for bathroom as well

日本には当たり前のことだが、海外の人(特にアメリカ)はそのまま部屋の中で靴を履く人が多い!

2- Do not use talk on the phone in the train and keep them on silent mode. (電車の中必ずマナーモード)

Talking on the phone while on the train or not keeping them on silent mode is considered very rude in Japan!

3- Kanto elevator: always keep left, Kasai elevator: Keep right 

Kanto(Tokyo): Always keep on your left while taking the escalator if you are not passing! the right lane are for passing.

Kansai(Osaka): Oppositely, stay on your right on the escalator, and proceed to the left to pass

4- Wash yourself before dipping into the Onsen (温泉に入る前、きれいにしてください!)

Before proceeding yourself into the Onsen, Japanese people usually wash themselves before entering into the tub. So don't forget to clean yourself up!

5- Dont eat or drink while walking (歩きながら食べちゃだめだよ)

With our usual busy lifestyles,we are usually used to walk while eating something on-the-go.In Japan, it is considered rude for doing that, so be careful!

I hope you find this guide helpful! Despite these few not to do things list, do not forget to enjoy yourself while in Japan! See you guys soon!

さー、初めて来る外国人の友達たち、このガイドは役に立つでしょうか?いろいろ禁止なことはあると思うけど、それよりそんなに気にしないで日本で楽しんでね!

Posted by: Trainee

Hello! This is Hawker from Sakura Hotel Jimbocho! As a foreigner living in Tokyo, there are several things that about Japan that surprised me. Here are the top 5 things that i want to share with you!

どーも!サクラホテル神保町のホーカーでござる!日本にいるのはやっと4年目になりました。外国と日本の文化はちょっと違いますので、面白いと思い、驚いたことは5個ぐらい紹介したいと思います!それでは。。。。

#1. Melons are really really expensive. (日本のメロンは超高い!)

Each melon can cost from a range of 3,000 yen to 30,000 yen in Japan! If you have a chance to try them, please give it a try! I never knew that Melon can get so delicious! 日本のメロンは3000円?30000円ぐらい買うことができるます。チャンスがあれば、ぜったい味見にしてください!30,000円のメロンはこんなにおいしいと思わない!すっごいおいしかった!

#2. Slurping is a good...Good..GOOD! (ラーメン食べる時、ズルズルはおすすめ!)

Ever been scolded by your mom to mind your manners when you slurp your noodles? Well..definitely not in Japan.Slurping loudly on your Ramen or Soba indicates that the food is good and it compliments the chef! 外国と違って、母親によく言われた!「ズルズルはしっちゃだめだよ!」マーナーを守ってください!

#3. KFC gets really crowded during Christmas (クリマスと言いたら=KFCの行列)

Eating KFC is one of Japan's tradition every year during Christmas! Yes, they even take pre-order a few weeks in advance!!

#4. Eating Poisonous Fugu (Blowfish) is a huge delicacy in Japan.

Learning to prepare Fugu is serious business! It takes approximately 18 years for a chef to be certified to cut and to master on how to serve them.

#5. Lastly,Eating Raw Horse meat is common in Japan (日本の方は馬肉食べるんだ!)

Called as 'bashashi', it is a raw sashimi made out of Horse meat! My friends lied to me on my first try,they told me it was made from beef. It is surprisingly delicious! GIVE IT A TRY!

初めて馬刺し食べる経験は友達たちに騙されて、「こちらは牛肉だよ」と言われたので、味見してみました!思ったより味がとても美味しかった!

What are the surprising things or interesting things that you have experience in Japan? Please let me know!
