This is my 2nd stay in Yoccola Island and everything went great! It is very cozy to sleep on either tatami or bed. We can wash our clothes too! The host Sho provides a detailed itinerary before my arrival and he is very responsive for my questions. I would definitely choose here for my next stay in osaka. But it would be great if it can resume its bike rental again!

We loved the tatami room and futons, we slept comfortably. The room is spacious, and we had a small entry room where we could hang out and leave our stuff, which was separate from the bedroom - that was great. The location is good - just five minutes away from Namba by subway, and it takes just 1 minute to walk from the airbnb to the subway. The shared showers were good, great water pressure and hot water. There's a hair dryer you can use in the common room. Also the wi-fi worked well. The only issue was odors. We had a consistent, subtle bad smell coming from the sink (or window?). An air freshener was in the room, but it wasn't enough to cover the smell completely. Besides that, we had a good stay and would recommend this place.

I was born KOBE.I`ve lived in Osaka for 22 years.
I have been working in bars for 15 years.
I like to take trips, play music and go fishing!
We enjoy hanging out with people who enjoy a good drink・・・☆
I sometimes play the SANSHIN (the traditional musical instrument of Okinawa).

*GANDHI*(my partner)

Gandhi was born in Osaka and has lived here for 50 years.
We know everything about Osaka!
He was an electrician before.
He grieved in an accident of Fukushima and began a teacher of the self make photovoltaic power generation.
It is to protest against to nuclear power generation!
He love sea&surfing.

Our BAR NOCOSAREJIMA is conveniently located at the base of Tsutenkaku
(the most famous tower in Osaka).
My friends SHO will continue with our BAR.
He is good musicians!
Noco & Gandhi opened our shared house in the spring of 2012!
The same year that Japan had a big earthquake and tsunami.
We wanted to create a place where people could relax and spend time in Osaka.
After the earthquake, foreign tourism had decreased.
We want foreigners to visit Japan again and get to know Japan more.
And we came across this splendid house!
We have redecorated it all by ourselves.

We are proud.
The location of this house is in a splendid place in OSAKA in fact!
The neighborhood of my house is so-called downtown.
If you like the `high-quality` housing area, you will think the neighborhood of my house is not to so good.
I recommend that you reserve a high-quality hotel!
Things have been said in a guidebook that make us sad.
All the residents around my house are good, kind human beings.
Even if they don`t have enough money.

However, many former visitors have enjoyed my house&neighborhood!
Here they get an insight into the true life of Japan.

There is cheap, delicious food, a public bath,Hot springs, shopping of the curio・・・・!
We have many many reviews. Please refer to them!

Please come and visit us!
