===Here are details about the room===

Small wooden floor room.(7.44 ㎡)
One double size bed is provided.
An air conditioner is set in this room.

☆Bed room 2☆
Wooden floor room.(9.95 ㎡)
There are two single beds and one futon can be set for 5th guest.
There is an air conditioner in this room as well.

☆Living room&Kitchen☆
There are a dining table and chairs.
Kitchen is connected to the living room.
There are tableware, cooking equipments, an electric kettle, detergent, sponge for washing, trash bins, trash bags, etc.

☆Bath room and toilet☆
Toilet and shower room are separated.
In the shower room, soap(liquid type for body), hair shampoo, hair conditioner are available for guests so you can freely use them during your stay.
The shower room is small, but if you just take a shower, it is no problem. If you like to soak in the bath tub, this room is not suitable for you as the tub is small.

In the toilet, toilet paper is provided.
Also, there are always toilet cleaners including antiseptic solution for the toilet seat so you can freely use them when you need.

☆About the view from windows☆
There are buildings, an old building company near by the apartment, so if you are particular about nice view, the room would not be suitable for you.

☆Other information☆
One pocket wifi(mobile wifi) is available for guests in stead of home wifi.
You can bring the wifi during you are out, but there is limitation so please turn off whenever you don't need.
If you use 3GB within 3days, the speed of wifi connection will be slow next day and it takes for a day to recover. I have understood that mobile wifi is more convenient than home wifi for tourists, so I have provided the pocket wifi so you can have wifi connection when you are out.

If you are all adults(Five adult guests), the room will be narrow especially if you bring many suitcases, so if you want spacious space, this room is not suitable for you. This room is suitable for family or a couple/two couples, or friends. There is no lock at each room's door.

Guest access

Since this is private flat, you can freely use everything in the room.

Interaction with guests

Usually I meet guests to pass the room key.
In case of emergency and it is impossible to meet you when your arrival time, I will tell you how to check in by yourself then and will come over your flat to greet you(just for a few minutes) when you are in the room.

I am sorry that I cannot make any reservation(e.g. Restaurants, tour, transportation, etc.) instead of you before your arrival. I can only help you when your plan is 120% sure after your arrival.
I had helped to make reservation before but understood that travelers' plan could easily change always and it could be difficult to be punctual for guests. In order to avoid any trouble between guests and something you book, I no longer make any reservation in stead of guests, but will help you to get information if you tell me what information you need.

☆During your stay☆
Please feel free to contact me when you need help or have questions.
I will go to your room to help you directly.
For example, if there are lack of daily necessities(such as tissue, toilet paper, trash bags, etc.), I will bring it. Usually they are provided in the room already, but if they run out during your stay, please let me know.
We can keep in touch through airbnb message system basically.

If we both have time and you are interested in talking to Japanese or asking about something in Japan, let's spend some time together.
I know travelers are very busy everyday, so I cannot ask you to hang out from me, but if you ask me, I will be glad to join you if the timing is good for me then.

I would like to meet wonderful people and have friends in the world, so I will be very happy if I can become one of your good friends.

Meeting new people is exciting and sharing different culture is quite interesting, so please let me know about your country if there is time to talk together. I will be very happy to hear that!

☆Check out☆
If the timing is good for me and you would like me to come to your flat when you leave, let me come over your place to greet you.
Otherwise please just message me when you leave.(I will tell you how to check out by yourself then.)
If you have already planed what time you would like to check out, please inform me in advance or during your stay.

☆After check out☆
I am very happy if I could be your good Japanese friend.
I hope to see you again in your country in the future.

Other things to note

Usually house cleaning is done every check out, so no one enters the room to do daily cleaning during your stay. If you accidentally make something dirty/stain, please let me know ASAP so I can go to your room and try to remove the stain soon. If you inform me ASAP, it could be easier to remove the dirt so I would deeply appreciate if you could contact me soon in that case. This is very important for you as well because if the stain remains after you check out and it is difficult to remove, I may reach out to you for help to cover the cost, so in order to save the cost each other, let me try to remove/clean it ASAP during your stay if it happens.

☆When you are in the apartment☆
The building is just a normal apartment(not a hotel), so keeping quiet anywhere(both in the room and outside of the room) in the building is the most important manner in order to keep your stay. (This manner can be a rule common around the world when you are in the apartment though.)

If someone makes complaint about noise due to your room or yourself, I will come to your flat immediately to confirm the situation and may have to stop providing the service then. When you are outside of the room but still in the building, please talk very quietly or keep silent as possible. Anyway, If you stay quietly, it will be no problem at all.

☆Washing and drying clothes☆
Please use the washing/drying machine in the flat.
Please DO NOT put any hand washed clothes in the machine when you use the drying machine as the machine could be damaged as well as it is dangerous. Also, please DO NOT hang any hand washed clothes in the room as water can spill from the clothes and the floor can be damaged.
If you would like to wash during night hours, please let me know each time.(Washing machine can be used from 7:00am-10:30pm(Last start) and drying function can be used for 24 hours.)

☆If there are children☆
I know it is difficult to train children to be quiet all the time, so if you think being quiet is difficult for your children, I recommend you to stay at a good hotel so you all can feel more comfortable.
I know some kids like dancing, singing, running and jumping, but in the apartment, it is impossible to do it.
If children jump on the floor/tatami/beds, the noise will reach down stairs and next to your flat as well, so if they start doing those activities, please try to stop it ASAP.

Also, if children jump on the beddings, beds, futons, pillows and comforters/quilts can be damaged and if something breaks due to those activities, I may reach out to you for help to cover the cost to buy new one.(Since I have provided good quality goods for beddings, they are expensive.) If you use with care and just normally, it is no problem at all. Just No jump or run on the beddings and in the room please.

☆About the view from windows☆
There are buildings, an old building company near by the apartment, so if you are particular about nice view, the room would not be suitable for you.

☆About TV☆
There is no TV in the room, but wireless TV(only Japanese TV program) can be provided with request. Please let me know if you need the TV at least one week before your arrival so I can provide it for you beforehand.

☆When guests check in☆
When your arrival, I may clean(just wipe with clean wet towels) your suitcases and cover wheels on them in order to keep cleanliness as sometimes it is difficult to remove dirt which is made by suitcases(especially wheels). Sorry, but I will finish cleaning quickly.

☆Any request?☆
If you have any requests or something that you would like me to provide during your stay, please feel free to let me know before you come. I will try to prepare as possible if your request does not exceed my capacity for extra preparation.

☆Regarding towels☆
Usually one bath towel is for one guest, but if you need another one during your stay, feel free to ask me.

We stayed at Iku's for four nights in March 2017. Iku is the perfect host and we immediately felt at home. Iku met us at the apartment and gave us a run down on how everything worked. Iku was available if we needed a change of towels or assistance with any of the appliances etc. The apartment is in a great location, close by to subway and train stations, restaurants and shopping. Iku keeps the apartment fantastically clean with everthing you need. There was enough room for four adults. We have no hesitation in recommending Iku's apartment.

Response from Iku:
Dear Alan and your wonderful family, Sincerely thank you very much for your stay. You are such a thoughtful person! Thank you very much for giving me this very nice review this soon. I hope you safely reached Tokyo and have seen some cherry blossom already. I felt very happy and comfortable during your stay as you all were truly sincere and considerate to me. I already miss you all. Please contact me when you visit Osaka again in the future. I would like to take a photo with you next time(probably in your beautiful city!). Keep in touch!!

Iku is a great host with good English communication. Her place is very neat and well organized on manual. The location is in the central of everywhere and close to subway station and many department stores around. Iku had been helpful with everything for needed. Would definitely recommend Iku's place when visiting Osaka.

Iku is the most polite, reliable and helpful host I have ever met. Her English is excellent that we communicate very well all the time. She provides a lot of useful information and solves our needs in our trip. She is eager to help and always stands by us whenever we need. I am so thankful for having Iku as our host. She is more like a friend instead of a host! She introduced us to join the local summer festival and wear Yukata which is one of the highlights in our trip. Her smile and warmth makes our trip a perfect one. The apartment is clean, comfortable and well-equipped with electrical appliances. All you need can be found there. It locates in Umeda and accesses traffic network within 8-10 minutues. New Hankyu Department Store and Lucua 1100 is nearby which is good for shopping and dining. There is a construction site recently but doesn't cause big noise at all. I highly recommend Iku's apartment to all. I will absolutely visit her place again very soon. Wish Iku every success in her future!

I used Airbnb for the first time, and it was the best time to stay in Iku's room. If I visit Osaka again, I would like to stay here again. I liked the cleaner rooms than the pictures and the close proximity to Osaka, Umeda and Nakazakishima stations. Above all, Iku's friendly, real-time response, hand notes, Surprise gift, etc., leave a warm memory for Osaka. It is highly recommended for Osaka visitors who use Airbnb. Thank you~!

lku is the kindest landlord I have ever seen. She responsed instantly for anything you ask for her help even something not related with the apartment. She gave me lots of cares and information especially really useful traffic and local culture things before I arrived which saved me a lot of time. Besides, she always tried to meet your requirement for the rooms. For the apartment, it is so clean and I felt really comfortable during that time. lku will explain anything in very detail about the apartment with kindness. In the room, lku prepared all the things that we need (really sweet). I will defenitely book it again next time and recommend it to all of you.

This is our second time staying at Iku's place. For both times, we felt like home. Iku's place is very clean and comfortable. She prepares everything travelers may need in her house including travel guides, band-aid and even makeup remover. The location is perfect, minutes away from the Umeda shopping area and Osaka station, plenty of restaurants with various kinds of food to try. We weren't affected by the on-going construction near Iku's house. Iku is the best host I have met. She picked us from the railway station, gave us detailed information about the surrounding area and quickly responded to anything we need during the stay. She is always considerate and helpful. Airbnb has always promoted itself to be a platform for people to meet more friends and stay at home in a foreign place. I have found home in Osaka with Iku's hospitality. There is no reason for not booking Iku's place. If you are coming to Osaka and found Iku's place still available, BOOK IT!! It will make your trip so much better.
