Though Japan has a vibrant and wonderful culture and we truly hope that you enjoy your stay here with us, there are some cultural differences between Japan and other countries that we'd like to first inform you about. As such please kindly take a few minutes to read the following points prior to your trip so that your stay in Japan is as enjoyable and problem free as possible.
While we wish you a wonderful stay and not have to bring up any rules and regulations, Japan is still a country that is largely unaware of the sharing economy trend and to ensure that everything goes smoothly with your trip, we ask you to comply with the following:
1.) Upon arrival you will be asked to sign a "lease agreement" after confirming your booking. The purpose of this document is simply to ensure that your stay with us is legal as without this agreement, AirBnB rentals currently operate in a legal grey zone nearing the illegal side of grey. Additionally this document also outlines the standard cultural norms expect of ANYONE who is residing in a Japanese residential building. By opting for AirBnB instead of a hotel you too will be expected act appropriately as someone residing in a residential building. The terms are as follows:
Guests will be expected to pay for any and all damages incurred during the course of their stay. Please use common sense take care of our properties while staying with us. This includes lost keys whose replacement costs vary, from 500 yen for older simple locks, and range upwards to 25000 yen as newer buildings have more complicated computer chip-included lock systems.
We offer pocket Wi-Fi routers to all of our guests but due to the initial cost of the device , should it be lost or damaged you will be charged a fee of JPY 40,000.
As a general rule of thumb, please be quiet when in the vicinity of our properties. Even in urban areas, residences tend to be on the more quiet and peaceful side of things and as such we ask you to keep this in mind to not disturb those in the area where you stay.
As a cultural rule, "public spaces" such as the lobby or elevators are areas where people tend not to make much noise. As such, should you have a big group we ask that you not crowd these shared spaces, especially considering how small they often can be. As luggage and bodies can quickly fill up Japan's tiny elevators, we ask that you wait outside should everyone not be able to ride the same elevator to avoid bothering those in the same building as (wait at least two minutes for it to return to the lobby floor).
While in other countries having social gatherings of friends at one another's houses is a common occurrence this almost NEVER happens in Japan. People here prefer instead to gather at one of the many bars, cafes and clubs that are open until the early morning due to the incredibly close living conditions. This is a critical point to remember!
While we encourage our guests to have a good time while in Japan, we ask that you please consult us first before being rowdy in the any of our apartments. Even in the big cities, things get pretty quiet at home after 10 PM and though we do the best to soundproof our listings to the extent possible, if there is a formal noise complaint made against us we will have no recourse but to charge a JPY 10,000 penalty. As such, we kindly ask you to respect your neighbors and keep quiet at night.
While AirBnB does indeed operate legally in Japan, many Japanese are still unaware of the sharing economy and are not yet accustomed to the idea of sharing with outsiders. Though we hope this will change in the near future, to avoid any formal complaints from both the building management and other residents we request that you refrain from speaking with or interacting with anyone on the premises. If you have any questions please address them to us and not the management of the building as they will not be able to help you.
Additionally should anyone ring the door bell, please do not answer it. 99.9% of the time the inquiry is a sales person and not of interest to you. In the rare case that it is not, please do not answer and contact us directly so that we can handle it.
All of our listings are non-smoking. Should you end up smoking in the rooms, it will require a special cleaning to remove any smell or stains. If we discover that a guest has smoked in his or her apartment, we will be forced to charge JPY 10,000 to cover the cost. For rooms with balconies, it's OK to smoke outside on the balcony but please properly dispose of your cigarettes when done.
Additionally Japan does not allow smoking outdoor except for designated areas. Police have been cracking down lately on smoking outside of these areas and as such for your own benefit, we'd like to remind you to please be mindful of others when enjoying a cigarette.
2.) Arrival information
Download the PDF file that we will send you and keep it on your mobile device, or print it out. The file contains all the directions and instructions necessary for your check in.
Please be quiet after 10 PM both inside and outside the house.
Remember to send a message a day before you check in to verify your check-in time and also another message to confirm the checkout procedure.
Sign the lease agreement after booking by replying to the email you will be sent with both your name and the date of signing.
Please use common sense while staying with us, for example dry off completely before exiting the bathroom, turn off the lights and air conditioning before leaving, etc.
1. We can help you alter or transfer most reservations usually free of charge.
2. If you make a reservation and cancel within 24 hours there will be a ¥5000 service fee. In order to claim this benefit you must not be arriving within one weeks time and must cancel within 24 hours.
3. If you cancel between 24 hours to 72 hours within booking and still less than one week until arrival there will be a 25% cancelation fee.
4. Outside of these exceptions standard cancellation policies apply.
5. We charge 3000 YEN/hour for late check out.
Wonderful! Owner gave us a super clear instruction how to get there and do the check in. Even small kids would understand. Super easy. Very convenient location just 1 metro stop from osaka umeda station. From nearest metro, only about 200m walk, very near. So if you bring big luggage, it should be no problem, metro station got the elevator and it is flat road to the apartment. Apartment is really nice, as seen in picture. We save lots of money and time staying here. Would recommend to anyone
Great location, and the apartment is very comfortable and convenient. But the portable wifi was not working !n
A rather tiny room, suitable for 3 people but not fit able for 4 or 5. The toilet is spacious and clean. The location is near the subway station
Great location close to the bars and restaurants around Umeda. Getting to the apartment was a breeze as Jeffrey gave very clear directions. The apartment was compact but just big enough for 3 people. The bathroom was a good size and a great shower.
Cleanliness of the apartment was a big let down, as was the lack of a working wifi. Also the balcony was inaccessible due to the laundry left outside. We raised these concerns to Jeffrey and in fairness he has offered a partial refund for these issues.
We were a party of three plus a 1 year old baby, so the apartment was a bit small for us, but otherwise it was well organised and neat. The location is great, walking distance to Osaka/Umeda station.
Communication with the host was not very smooth. Only use the AirBnB website, do not try the reply button on your mail client, otherwise messages will go unnoticed. We received three different instructions on how to leave the keys, only the last one, given directly by phone, made sense.
The wifi was not good, basically we could not us it due to its slowness, but probably the idea of having a portable wifi is a good one.
Not much equipment in the kitchen, but we did really need it.
So, we recommend as a basis for going around Osaka, not for long stays and not for more than two people.
