Introduce our staff...vol.8
Posted by: kayoko
Hello! we keep introducing our staffs, and one more person today......
Takashi has been working with us since the last February.
He is kind and hospitable to everyone.
That is why he is popular among our guests.
Now he temporarily works at Sakura Hotel Jimbocho(another branch of our hotel)
But he will come back to Ikebukuro after a while to welcome you guests ;)
*Language: Japanese, English
*Countries visited: England, Canada, Switzerland, Holland, Thailand, Hawaii, and the Bahamas.
*Travel episode: When my friend and I visited Samui Island in Thailand, we rented one motor cycle for two of us, and took a day trip to find the secret beach (by which we meant some random beach on the other side of the island we had found on the map, where we thought there would be fewer tourists).
The island is small enough for us to go around to the opposite coast within several hours, yet big enough to enjoy the journey.
We explored villages and bought inexpensive snorkels (the ones you can find at a toy store), pulled over and took a rest by the Big Buddha, and cooled our bodies down at “the next secret beach” on the way.
When we eventually arrived to the targeted beach, the sun had just started setting and we had only a couple of hours of daylight left. On the beach there was nobody but my friend and me, and although it was getting a little bit chilly we decided to try the snorkels we had bought.
However, the beach was not so much for swimming because there were seaweeds and plants growing all over in the water that we could barely walk (it almost looked like a forest under the sea), so we gave up running into the ocean, and instead we floated on the surface.
We were happy that the snorkels worked quite well and we could see many small fish swimming in groups.
Some of them looked unknown and I got excited when I thought I was the first person to have found them. After all, what we have found was not the secret beach that we had dreamed of, but it was alright, because one of the best parts of travelling is surprise.
*Message: It would be an absolute pleasure of mine if Sakura Hotel and I could take a part in your memories in Japan.
All of our staffs are friendly and helpful, so please do not hesitate to contact us for information.
We’ll be pleased to hear from you!
