With the cooperation of representatives of various regions, there are events including a Nishi Arai walking tour, international exchanges, sushi making experiences, Japanese green tea workshops, calligraphy workshops and more. These numerous events are held so that more have the opportunity to feel and experience “Nishi Arai”, “Adachi-ku”, “Tokyo” and Japan.
How to enjoy
A hostel brining people and places together through unique experiences
This is a hostel that aims to bring connectors, guests and places together through cultural workshops and exchange events. The hotel is walking distance from Daishi Nishi-arai and there is a great downtown atmosphere.
The objective of Emblem Hostel is to “Create an enjoyable hotel experience with the theme of connecting people together”. This creates a unique selling point of the hotel as being one that brings people and places together. We believe that trips are not about just visiting places in a guidebook and sightseeing, but gaining an insight into the real lifestyle of local people as well as opportunities to meet and connect with local people. We believe that such experiences will create an unforgettable trip experience. In order to achieve this, the above-mentioned workshops and events will be held while having our connectors bring people together in the process.

My name is Eriko, and I am the café and bar catering manager. The signature dish of Emblem is Hamburgers! It is a popular favourite with locals and foreign visitors alike. I myself am also a big fan of the Emblem hamburger, so I’m always trying to find different ways to make the best buns and meat patty, so the recipe is ever-evolving! Through our signature hamburgers, I hope to make our establishment somewhere full of smiling and laughing guests, having a great time!

I am Ryuta, in charge of Barbecue and Camp events. As someone who loves the outdoors, I hope to make Emblem a place that is known and loved by many people around the world, especially through holding barbecues on our 3 floor terrace. Recently I also borrowed a light camper recently and went on my own trip. I warmly welcome friends to join our Nishi Arai camping events!
