"Japanese hospitality is magnificent."
Highly acclaimed throughout the world today, the spirit of Japanese omotenashi hospitality has been handed down for generations, and is comprised of thoughtfulness, courteousness and an attention to detail that is unique to Japan.

Ryokans and hotels are the epitome of omotenashi hospitality, offering comprehensive services in terms of food, clothing and shelter. The industry is not without its challenges, though, due to the expansive range it covers, from facilities and equipment to food and services.

After determining the current situation of each ryokan or hotel, we work with frontline employees to come up with the best solutions, then join forces to implement them.

Steady, small steps lead to progress in administration. At Sakura, we have members with experience in management improvement, enabling us to provide support with attention to detail.

Through our services, we pursue globally competitive Japanese accommodations while revitalizing local communities.
