Web blog is popular in Japan. Many people write blogs for their companies or have their own blogs.
As you already know, we have a web blog in our hotel
But our web blog has several rivals.
Let me introduce them.

The strongest rival is this↓.
Sakura Hostel Asakusa's web blog.
They update it almost everyday. I am jearousy of many topics they have everyday.

Another rival is this.
Sakura House web blog.
Since Sakura House has many apartments and guest houses all over Tokyo, Their topics have a variety .
Mostly, they write about some particular towns. And it is very interesting because each town has different face.

Our sister hotel, Sakura Hotel Hatagaya also has a web blog.
They write about Japanese culture and life. Their topics are very interesting.

Is the web blog popular in your country? Or is this popular only in Japan?
If you have your web blog, please let us know. I would like to see it.

Earthquake >_<

We had earthquake recentlly.
There are occasionally earthquakes in Japan......
That's terrible and scary........................................................
I feel very bad when an earthquake comes
And then I pray in my mind 'stop stop, please!!' ....
There are lots of earthquakes in Japan as the country is located on the continental plate boundary,.
I guess, some people (from Europe?) don't have this experience.
So they might not know....but please just keep in mind that earthquake is a terrible power of nature you can never imagine how scary it is.

(↓Niigata pref, 2007)

What should we do when it occures?

1. Don't be panic!! this is very important, and protect yourself first,
Stay under the desk, for example.
Don't rush out and in case you are out on the street watch out for falling objects such as roof tiles and broken glass,

2. Make sure that any sources of flame are out.
3. Secure an exit for escape when the shaking stops

Are you okay with this?.........I'm not okay..... :(
