Welcome to HOSTEL sakura-la-an

Sakura-la-an occupies the renovated top floor of a 50-year-old retro building dating back to 1964, the year of the Tokyo Olympics. Our common area has a sunny terrace and garden, where guests can help themselves to coffee or green tea and enjoy our small library of books on Japanese art, architecture, pottery, tea ceremony (chanoyu), traditional kaiseki meals, and other traditional arts and crafts. Cultural experience programs for tea ceremony, kimono-dressing, and calligraphy are available (additional fees apply). A combined kimono-dressing and tea ceremony program is offered in our tranquil tatami-floored tearoom. Sakura-la-an is more than just a place to sleep – it is ready to ensure that your stay is fun-filled and memorable. We look forward to ichigo ichie (一期一会)¬ – the central concept of the tea ceremony, meaning“a once in a lifetime encounter”– and welcoming you to Osaka.
