Sakia Global Hotels Inc. launches, changes name to Ango Hotels Inc.
Sakia Hospitality and The Global Group’s Global Hotel Management (Headquarters: Shinjuku, Tokyo; President: Yasuhiko Ueda) created a joint venture named Sakia Global Hotels in September 2017. It recently changed its name to Ango Hotels Inc.
As a globally-minded hotel planning, operations, management, and regional revitalization (consulting) business, Ango Hotels strives to win the trust of the community and industry through person-to-person and person-to-region connections. The company’s mission lies in cultivating a strong organization that encourages discovery of one’s true self.
In October 2018, the company is set to open ENSO ANGO in Kyoto.
Company Name Origins
Ango is a zen term born from the Sanskrit word for rain. It points to the disciplinary lives of monks-in-training undergoing a religious pilgrimage during the rainy season. Life is a journey to discover one’s true self, and the repetition of the everyday is similar to the training undertaken by monks. Travel is one’s time away from the repetitions of daily life, and the new discoveries and experiences help one discover his true self. We have chosen the name Ango with hope that people who visit our hotels will find a place and time for themselves in a safe ango, or sanctuary. We imagine the residents of the area to also find a moment’s peace and rich experiences within the Ango Hotel as well.
