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. :)

We would defiantly stay here again and recommend this apartment, it is in a great location near a major train station and good neighbourhood. Ryan and Fumi were very nice and met us at the train station even though we arrived rather late. Any issues or questions they were a quick text message away. Also their local knowledge and advice was greatly appreciated and helped make our trip a great one. Thank you Ryan and Fumi! I would recommend this apartment to anyone travelling to Osaka
What an awesome find in Osaka. Very close to the JR, Midosuji and Sakaisuji lines so that helped very much. Very quick and efficient check in, greeted by sweet treats and and an abundance of info on Osaka goods. Most importantly, very very clean and tidy and has everything you need. Communication with the hosts were amazingly fast and easy.
very nice house! all the equipments needed and very good location too! Ryan and Fumi are very welcoming! Hope I can come back later:P
Although we didn't meet Ryan & Fumi when we stayed at the apartment, they provided very clear instruction for us to checkin and checkout, and they are very helpful for our requests. The apartment is fully equipped, very comfortable and clean. Also, the location is very good, just few minutes from JR train station. We love this apartment much.
The apartment was fantastic, very conveniently located right around the corner from a train station, and Ryan was gracious enough to meet us at the train station upon our arrival and give us tips on local spots to check out in Osaka. Highly recommended!
Ryan and Fumi were extremely warm, welcoming and helpful.
Extremely detailed instructions, smooth check-in and out. Very cosy apartment and very close to the train station! Thanks Ryan & Fumi, we really enjoyed our stay! :)
