Acquisition of “Sakura Quality Green” international standard SDGs certification at all karaksa hotels

As of March 8, 2024, all six karaksa hotels have acquired “3 Gyoikou-Sakura” certification under the Sakura Quality An ESG Practice (commonly known as Sakura Quality Green) international standard certification system that certifies accommodation facilities as having implemented SDG-related initiatives.



Sakura Quality Green is a quality certification program developed by the Japan Tourism Quality Certification Association for lodging facilities. With a focus on the SDGs, the program is endorsed by The Global Sustainable Tourism Council in the United States, which administers the global standards for sustainable travel and tourism. The program’s 172 criteria are based on environmental and community considerations and sustainable corporate governance.


Together with its parent company, Xymax Corporation, and its group companies, karaksa hotels have been implementing sustainable initiatives under the themes of “Safety and Security,” “The Environment,” and “Employees” since its establishment, and we will continue to respond proactively to unforeseen challenges in today’s global world.
