Elise Hatsuko Affiliate Compensation Disclosure

As part of the website, we provide you with carefully curated recommendations for products that we love and think you will love too. We are making this Affiliate Compensation Disclosure available to you for the purpose of disclosing EHK Hospitality LLC’s (“Elise Hatsuko”, “us”, “we”) financial relationships with certain affiliates, advertisers, sponsors, and other parties that appear on the Elise Hatsuko website at, including any mobile versions of our website, and our social media channels (collectively, “Site”).
The most important thing to us is the trust we have from our readers. Therefore, we want to inform you that sometimes, Elise Hatsuko sells and thus receives monetary and other forms compensation from affiliates for various advertising, sponsorships, insertion orders and promotional campaigns that we feature on the Site. In other words, sometimes there is a paid connection between a product or service mentioned, reviewed or recommended on this Site and the affiliate (i.e., the owner of that third party product or service). If you ultimately decide to purchase a product or service mentioned on the Site, Elise Hatsuko may receive additional compensation from that purchase from the affiliate.
Further, the Site posts or otherwise promotes content, including editorial content, which may feature third party products and services (the “Affiliate Products”) and which may link to third-party owned and operated web sites where you can purchase Affiliate Products. Any time that you click on a link to an Affiliate’s Product on the Site and then follow the link to purchase an Affiliate Product on the affiliate’s web site, Elise Hatsuko will receive compensation from the affiliate offering the Affiliate Product. The content featuring Affiliate Product(s) may not always be identified on the Site as paid or sponsored content and the compensation that we receive from affiliates may influence what content, topics or posts we make on the Site and where they are posted.
Even though we may receive compensation in connection with our feature of certain products or services and/or your purchase of Affiliate Products as outlined in this Affiliate Compensation Disclosure, we still endeavor to provide our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, and experiences as they relate to the products and services that are featured on the Site.
Also, you will regularly see third party ads posted on the Site. Each time you click on an ad, we will receive compensation from the third party advertiser, even if you do not purchase something from the third party.
Our affiliates, and those we have a “substantial” relationship with – as defined by law as any business that has given us anything (no value minimum or explicit contract requirement) with the understanding that we should share about them – include or have included (not a complete list and the parties are subject to change at any time):
