2nd Floor (by Japanese and US counting; UK, EU and AUS counting: 1st), with JET BATH! No elevator/lift.
This is a fully furnished Studio type apartment with fully working kitchen. It was renovated by a local real estate developer who is originally from Austrailia. It's special features include a big oven from Germany, a BIG JET BATH, a NEW fashionable sofa-bed, a dishwasher, Pocket Wifi and LAN internet service and basic cable service. It's in the same building as my other listing called "Great apartment". We own the building. :)
It's a spacious one bedroom bachelor pad with a full sized bed comfortable for two. The sofa bed we recently added is a double bed size. We allow up to three people in this listing to stay. We would consider two adults and two young children.
Like many apartments in Japan the space is well designed but smaller than western size. In this apartment, I feel cozy and very comfortable. It's quite large for Japan; about three times the size of my first apartment here. It has a standard Japanese heating and Airconditioning unit that's governed by a remote control. The stairs are a standard width and high for Japan which is slightly steeper than in America but don't pose any significant barriers for entry.
The kitchen is a galley space towards the front of the apartment. It has a dishwasher a four burner stove, and oven, a microwave, a refridgerator and all the bits-and-bobs you'd need to cook and eat in the apartment.
The bath is a nice whirlpool jet bath and the toilet is a western style toilet with all the special buttons. :)
Close to the apartment you'll find that it's a brisk 5 minute walk from Shinseikai, the Osaka Zoo, and Tsutenkaku Tower. This area is famous for a 100 year old TV/radio tower that is now used as an observation tower and it's many kushikatsu (fried food on sticks) restaurants.
There is one double bed and a NEW fashionable sofa-bed. We often provide a Japanese futon as well if needed. Please tell us if you'd like us to prepare both beds. :)

CHECK-OUT: any time up to 11 PM. Anytime before.
1.Can I store my luggage before check-in/after check-out ?
The apartment has no storage area outside of the apartment for luggage.
I suggest using a coin locker at the nearby station or almost every station has coin locker in Osaka as it is very safe and convenient.

The calendar is usually up-to-date.
One Night reservations are not accepted. Last minute booking is OK. (Please let us know your expected arrival time)

-- Age over 6: (second child under 6) Usual additional fee!(Counts as a guest)

4. WHY IS THE PRICE DIFFERENT THAN WHAT I AM CALCULATING?
The total price is composed of three parts:
1) [nightly price] x [number of nights] + (Extra guests fee) The nightly rate can be found on the calendar.
2) Cleaning fee(one-time fee)
3) Service fee(one-time fee set and collected by Airbnb, typically between 3% and 12%)
Exchange rates might also change the price. We have our prices in USD.
The cleaning fee, the extra guest fee, the weekly discount and the monthly discount can be found under "additional fees" in the description.
Prices will fluctuate during peak seasons, holidays, and special events.
Enter in your specific dates on the calendar to see the current price for those days. Discounts for weekly and monthly stays are subtracted before the additional guest fee is added.
5. Will I get charged for the deposit ?
- Security deposits help cover accidents that occur during a reservation, like spilled wine on the rug, a broken window, or an non-returned key. Hosts must add a security deposit to their listing before a reservation is booked. Security deposits can't be handled off-site in cash, as off-site payments are a violation of our terms.
When a reservation is accepted, the security deposit details and guest's payment information is stored. No charges or authorizations will be made to the guest's payment method unless the host needs to make a claim. A host has 48 hours after the checkout date to make a claim on the security deposit.
6. Will you give me a discount?
-Sorry no. We set our prices to about half the price of a normal hotel in same area. As mentioned before we set weekly and monthly discount.
