  • MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS: The Most ‘Kawaii’ Accommodation Experience in Harajuku

    15.April.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    I visited MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS -SAKURA- with Chinese talent Etsuna and Japanese model Ren Koseki. This accommodation and Harajuku hot spot is gaining much attention right now for its interior design which offers the full ‘kawaii’ experience wherever you look. It is produced by ASOBISYSTEM, a company that aims to promote Harajuku culture to the rest of the world.

    It is located just an 8-minute walk from Meiji-Jingumae Station via the Tokyo Metro Line or 10 minutes on foot from Harajuku Station via the JR Line. Its ideal location places it very close to the most popular areas in Harajuku including Takeshita Street, Ura-Harajuku and Omoteando. It is even within walking distance from the New National Stadium which is set to be completed in November 2019 and will serve as the venue for the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics.

    The concept of this single-room accommodation is ‘SAKURA’ which is the Japanese word for cherry blossom making it the perfect place to be in right now for the spring season. Its gorgeous and unique layout is overlooked by a huge cherry blossom monument in the bedroom which also works as a light to create a magical atmosphere.

    Pink is the base colour for the room which is perfect for parties and girl-only get-togethers. The is the main bed and separate simple beds to accommodate up to 5 guests. But it can house as many people as you like if they’re just coming to play! This fantastic system is made possible by Airbnb.

    You’re sure to snatch an Instagram moment in front of this neon sign which reads 桜―that’s ‘sakura’ in Japanese!

    The room even comes with an iconic dresser fitted with a huge mirror. This means you and your friends can all put your makeup on together at the same time before you head out. There’s a hair drier as well as hair straighteners which Ren is using in the photo.

    There’s even a rooftop area which provides a panoramic view of Harajuku. This space can be used for parties, BBQs and whatever else you can think of! But keep in mind that the roof can be reserved by non-guests too in which case access will be restricted. Be sure to find out in advance if you’re thinking of using it.

    How did you find your stay at MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS -SAKURA-, Etsuna and Ren?

     

    Etsuna: “From a foreigner’s perspective, I really felt the Japanese-ness towards the sakura which is great. The dresser is huge too, I’m happy that two people can do their makeup at the same time! The place is not only cute, but it’s made in such a way that the functionality of the room is easy to use. It felt heart-warming to be there.”

     

    Ren: “When it comes to lots of girls wanting a place to get together, not for travel but just to hang out, love hotels are the mainstream, but ‘fun’ and ‘cute’ don’t really stand together in a place like that. But here, five people can stay together, and no matter where they take photos it’s going to look cute! Plus it’s in Harajuku, you can get some stylish-looking food and drinks from nearby cafés for takeout and stay up late. That sounds amazing. I can think of so many things!”

    SAKURA is located on the 5th floor of a building, but if you have a lot of luggage you can contact the staff in advance and they will carry it up for you. MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS offers a very special experience where you get to stay the night in Harajuku. And SAKURA is just the start. We plan to open even more rooms on the other floors with different concepts, so look forward to it!
