Fully renovated designer apartment by Dotonbori River in Namba, Osaka. 5 min walk to main stations and less to stylish cafes, restaurants, funky shops in Amerika Mura, groovy Minami Horie, Shisaibashi, Dotonbori. Lots of parks and supermarkets too!

The Space

Newly remodeled super groovy designer apartment in the middle of the hippest area of Osaka, Minami Horie. Fantastic river and city view from the balcony is all yours to enjoy. Only 5 min walk from JR Namba (OCAT), Shinsaibashi, American village, and a short train ride from Umeda and all other major city centers.

Beautiful bathroom with GROHE appliances including a rain shower. Broadband internet access and Wi-Fi are included in our rental charge along with all utilities. Great shopping, cultural entertainments (Kabuki & Bunraku), theaters (Osaka's famous comedy shows, movies, and much more!), dining and wining (yes, Osakans love their food before anything), and romantic city getaway (river cruise, 5 star French restaurant, and you name it!) can all be enjoyed as well as Osaka Castle, a number of local parks for children and amusement parks including Universal Studio Japan and Kaiyukan(the world famous aquarium).

There is basically EVERYTHING you wish to have for your city holidays. Just ask us for local tips, we will gladly offer ideas and recommendations. And of course, we are the Osakans!

  • We had already stayed at Yukikos' in Kyoto and the Osaka property was even better. Fantastic location - just where you want to be. Very easy access to Dotonbori but right in the thick of Namba (more local and interesting). Very roomy for a one bed and well thought through. We stayed an additional two nights we loved it so much. We really recommend the property. Thank you.

  • Awesome apartment in absolutely the most convenient, charming and relaxing neighborhood in Osaka. Extremely close to the action of Dotonburi, Shinsaibashi & Amerika-Mura all within 10-15 mins walk or enjoy the quaint local area of the apt in Minami-Horie -- cool, hip and this is coming from a New Yorker, a Williamsburg, Brooklynite of over a decade.

    Rob and Akiko were both super helpful before and during our stay. They were quickly responsive and easy to reach when we could not figure out how to switch shower-heads and followed up prompty. Domo Arigato for your warmth and hospitality!

  • We were really happy with the stay we had in Osaka in Yukiko's apartment. Her communication was prompt, informative and friendly, the apartment itself was just what we were looking for, comfortable, very well equipped and in a great location, close to Namba and Orange st but on a quiet street.
    The apartment is really nicely decorated with a very good bathroom, we felt really at home there.

  • The apartment is as lovely as the pictures suggest - spacious, comfortable, and fully equipped. In terms of distance, very close to hip shopping/cafe areas and subway stations. We definitely enjoyed our stay there!

    Thank you very much Yukiko!

  • Yukiko's apartment is at a great location. It's easily accessible from Namba OCAT and Dotonburi.

    The apartment is nice and trendy. We had 4 people sharing it and space was sufficient. She also had lots of kitchen utensils for whipping up late night snacks! We truly enjoyed our stay there!

  • This was an excellent apartment in a great location. The subway and JR lines are nearby as well as plenty of great areas for exploring Osaka. It was very easy to find, as per the directions provided. Yukiko was the perfect host, always available if we ever had any problems. Definitely recommend this apartment for couples or small family.

  • My boyfriend and I immensely enjoyed our stay at Yukiko's apartment - it made a very comfortable, spacious base from which we could explore the vibrant city of Osaka. Great location near fantastic shopping (especially for guys) and very close to the bright lights and good food of Dotonburi. Highly recommended - we would definitely stay here again.

  • Yukiko's apartment on the canal is located in a very cool neighbourhood Osaka. It is in walking distance to great bars coffee shops food and fashion with easy access to the subway

    The apartment itself has been nicely renovated and is super comfortable with plenty of comforts including washing machine full kitchen with appliances music system large flat screen tv and DVD and a selection of dvd's and music cd's to use

    I would stay there again for sure and would look at staying in her other accommodations in Japan because of our experience in the Namba Canal apartment

    Yukiko's communication prior to our stay was excellent and we really appreciated the bowl if goodies and hand written welcome note for our arrival

    Thanks Yukiko

  • This was my second stay at this location and it was also perfect!

    There were lots of amenities to make my stay enjoyable. When I had questions about the place, there was always someone immediately available. The place was very, very clean. The neighbors were quiet and the elevator was always pretty fast.

    If you're planning to stay in and cook a lot, this is a great place. Grocery stores are close and the kitchen literally has everything you need.

    Plenty of extra bedding and linens and towels. Even a place to hang your clothes.

    I will definitely stay here again!! :)
