Bonjour! Je suis Chloé, toute nouvelle dans l'équipe de Sakura Hôtel Ikebukuro !
Originaire de Franche-Comté, j'ai étudié en Alsace à l'Universite Marc Bloch de Strasbourg et à l'école de langues Shinjuku Nihongo Gakkou à Tokyo avant d'intégrer l'equipe Sakura Hotel.
J'ai fais pas mal de petits boulots ici à Tokyo : serveuse, vendeuse, professeur de francais... plein d'expériences qui m'ont permis de faire de nouvelles rencontres et d'apprendre beaucoup sur le Japon et les japonais. Durant mon temps libre, j'aime faire du shopping du coté de Shinjuku et aller m'amuser le soir à Shibuya : vous l'aurez compris, j'aime beaucoup Tokyo pour son coté "ville qui ne dort jamais".
Mais ce n'est pas pour autant que je délaisse les balades paisibles et les découvertes de petits temples cachés au détour d'une ruelle, ｔémoignage frappant du contraste traditionnel / modernité. J'aime beaucoup voyager et faire de nouvelles rencontres, alors n'hésitez pas à venir me trouver à l'hôtel Sakura d'Ikebukuro ! ;)
Hi everyone ! I am Chloe from France and I just started working here at Sakura Hotel Ikebukuro !
I am coming from the east countryside of France, and studied in Alsace before coming in Japan in 2008.
I made a lot of jobs here such as waitress, shop staff or french teacher, and thanks to that I have learned a lot about Japan and japanese people and made myself a lot of new friends.
I love Tokyo for its "never-sleep-city" side and while time-off I like to go shopping in Shinjuku and have funny Shibuya nights.
But I also like to walk to some calm traditionnal places just like Meiji Jingu parc, so contrasting with the effervesence of the city.
My passion is traveling, I have been staying in Australia when I was 15 and since then I traveled to a lot of places around the world, like Florida, Hong-Kong, Singapour, Indonesia, Caribbean sea islands and Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece... Don't hesitate to come find me at Ikebukuro Sakura Hotel ; )
Bach Peter Tran who is from Brisbane, Australia got this Yamanote Line T-shirt in Shibuya.
It is not too much to say that the Yamanote Line T-shirt is one of the coolest things in Tokyo among people from overseas.
The Yamanote Line is one of Tokyo's busiest and most important commuter rail lines.
Running as a loop line, it connects most of Tokyo's major 29 stations, including Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, Shinagawa, Akihabara and Tokyo. Trains which run clockwise are known as sotomawari “outer circle“ and those counter-clockwise as uchi-mawari “inner circle”.
Tokyo Loop Line
If you buy a Yamanote Line T-shirt, which station would you like to have on the front?
Of course I would have one printed with IKEBUKURO.
Pao-chan(right) and Lea-chan(left) :)
I thought those are from Japanese Anime but it wasn't...
Have look another picture :)
Oh yes, Pao-chan is Paola's figure and Lea-chan is Lea's one.
Their Japanese friend ordered to make their figure in Akihabara and gave them as gift :)
How nice story!
I hope they will enjoy the rest of the days in Tokyo and....maybe come back to see Sumo Match in May??
(They wanted to see Sumo Match today but tickets are sold out and unfortunately it's last day today and next one going to be held in May....)
