It's located in Ashiya City, highly known residential area which is sometimes to Beverly Hills in Japan. Just between Kobe and Osaka.
This room is a japanese tatami room suitable for 1-4 adults.
Quite good access to both, 10min train ride to Sannomiya (center of Kobe), 20min to Umeda (Osaka),and 32min to Namba(Osaka).We have 3 lines in the city, which is JR, Hankyu, Hanshin.
The closest Station is Hanshin Ashiya, 8min walk from the apartment. Every train including limited express stops this station, so you can save your time. To Kyoto, Nara you can also go & come home in one day！ It will take about an hour or so away by train.

The simple tatami room was nice and cozy. The blankets were comfortable and warm especially during winter. I also loved the quiet neighbourhood which was a very different feel as compared to the city life of osaka. I would recommend this place if you are looking to experience a neighbourhood lifestyle in Osaka. It is 30-40mins away by express train from the touristy area (umeda).
Kaori was very hospitable and helpful throughout our stay. She is very knowledgeable about many things! Thank you for hosting us!:)
ps: the room is more suitable for three people. it can be quite tight if there are four people.
it was great!!!!!!!!!!! thanks Kaori for waiting us when we arrived. even we left so early, she woke up with us to make sure everything was okay. we do really appreciate:) i will stay here next time! the house is clean, lovely and quiet and also near by convenient store and station.
We arrived right on time arranged with Kaori San. She kept in contact to make sure we know the way an also waited for us at the entrance with a warm welcome and bright smile. Her apartment is located in a quiet neighbourhood away from busy traffic and trains so it's very nice to sleep even till later hours in the morning. People around the neighbourhood are very friendly. It's a short walk to Hanshin Line station and JR is little further but when it's cold outside, the journey seems shorter. A few stations away from Kobe, just need to catch the rapid express trains to make your journey shorter. Had a great time talking to Kaori san, telling her about my country and about travelling. Made my whole trip really memorable.
Not only was the size of the room being seen bigger than I expected, but also the host, Kaori, was amazingly kind. The room was pretty cozy and comfortable to take a rest. Everything such as subway station, convenience store, bakery and supermarket was at fingertip!
Kaori is a wonderfully patient hostess (who speaks perfect English). We arrived very late and left very early, and both times Kaori made herself available to make sure that there were no problems.
The room is a large and comfortable and the apartment is in a quiet and pretty part of town.
I mostly recommend Kaori's place ! We really enjoyed this luminous room, the neighborhood is quiet and full of charms ! The people are really nice and pleasant ! It's really well deserved by the transports, so if you want to spend some time far from other tourists and live a good japanese experience go to Ashiya and enjoy this spacious room, plus you will be welcomed by a beautiful and gentle person, thank you Kaori !
Staying at Kaori's apartment was a nice experience. Prior to our arrival, Kaori sent us detailed information about her home and it's location. Therefore we had no difficulties to find the apartment. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and very close to a train station.
We really enjoyed her self-made bread =) We would recommend this apartment to everyone visiting Osaka.

Nice to meet you someday and somewhere on the planet.
