Accommodation

Sakura Quality

Sakura Quality is a system for valuing the quality of Japanese hotels and other lodgings. This information will help foreign tourists find and enjoy comfortable hotels and other lodgings.

Accommodations that wish to participate have a Phase 1 assessment based on around 300 different criteria concerning a hotel’s facilities, services, quality, safety management, and ability to deal with international guests. Accommodations that get above 3 Sakura marks on this assessment can opt for a Phase 2 assessment which is made up of around 2,100 criteria carried out by an unidentified assessor. Assessors are neutral and objective, and give a rating of up to five marks.

The Sakura Quality system differs from other such ‘word of mouth’ rating systems as the data has been collected by a private unbiased investigator.
