The space

This is a large HOUSE, a 5SDK!, The ONLY listing that is a True House (Not 2br Apt) just a 3 minute train ride to JR Osaka,near the main action in a tranquil area,
suit a large group/family, close to the Yodogawa river Nature reserve, FREE WIFI too!

Please note that this is a true spacious 2 story (with 3rd story rooftop covered verandah ) old yet renovated
***** HOUSE *****.
This House is NOT a tiny space age dogbox apartment/townhouse pretending to sleep 4/8 people in 1/2 bedrooms like some of the other propertys do -
check the details!!!
This is A Home away from Home.!!!

The two main highlights are the LOCATION and SPACE.
Located ONLY ONE train station from all the action, sparkle
and buzz of Osaka proper, you dont pay the exorbitant
prices nor get a cramped/tiny apt, nor do you have to contend with all the noise, pollution, crowds and hastle of the city centre. Located in a quiet residential area surrounded by one-way streets; also only a short (5) minute walk to the vast Yodogawa River Nature Reserve. The area has its own nightlife including a few notable restaurants, 24 hour Chain restaurants, and convenience stores and 3 supermarkets in walking distance. You have your own system kitchen with Gas cooking and Microwave etc etc.
A 3 minute walk to the NEW Yodogawa Ward Office/Spa/Pool/Gym Complex too.
Osaka is the CENTER of the Kansai Area,
so handy to explore the unique treasures of KYOTO,
the sophistication of KOBE/Sannomiya,
the worlds largest oldest wooden building/Buddha in NARA,
Japans largest fresh water Lake BIWA,
the Romantic Inland Sea, and natural playground of Awaji Island, let alone ALL that Osaka itself has to offer,
from the grand Osaka Castle and Park to Grand Temples to the nations most popular spot Grand Front in Umeda, to the cool shopping/partying/just hanging out/clubbing in Umeda/Namba/Shinsaibashi, to the huge USJ and port area , the ZOO and Spa World, etc etc.
Osaka is the perfect Center/Base/HUB for exploring all of this.

Please note the entire house per night sleeps up to 8 comfortably so though more suitable for a group/family, the rate schedule is negotiable
Longer stays a discount is negotiable depending on security deposit-
Also have a charming little hideaway cabin/shed nearby for a single- handy central yet compact fun quiet and secluded-4500 yen per night
NB usually do my email reply's most nights.

1 x Queen expensive spring mattress,
1 x Double spring mattress,
1 x Double (Firm) sponge mattress (sofa too)
1 x Double (Medium) sponge mattress,(folds to floor sofa too)

Dec2013 Pyscho Warning Update
Had hundreds stay 98 percent have been fine.
Just had my first Pyscho.
Please note just to confirm AirBnB policy
and my own position,
IF I find your behaviour or manner etc to be unacceptable, I may cancel your booking immediately.
Likewise If you find Me or the House to be unacceptable Please just state that and do not
stay and please Cancel immediately.
Most Guests like me and many Japanese
are reasonable, helpful, pleasant , polite, clean, modest, TOLERANT and have a sense of humor/reality.
This is Japan. This is OLD yet Renovated House.
Once the Ice is broken Japanese do speak freely,
If you hate Japan or Japanese or have a in/superiority complex
PLEASE do not come and certainly do NOT stay
A standard single business hotel room nearby is
about 9m2 sleep ONE costs 50usd and 300usd on Saturdays and Holidays which BTW have been FULLY BOOKED recently.
My House is more than 10x this size,
costs relatively cheaper
sleeps up to TEN to TWELVE
and has far more facilities,
like a new FULL COOKING Kitchen,
a Rooftop Balcony,
Privacy/Freedom a Hotel room cannot offer,
an includable covered car space, etc etc.
It is essentially an OLD House mostly but not all
renovated lived in by Japanese who most definitely
do NOT share the same customs and standards
that many foreigners do.
I speak English and perfectly.
MOST Japanese DO NOT.
Expect a little culture shock, prepare and you will
Enjoy it.
I do my best to make sure ALL Guests are as familiar and settled as can be realistically
I also expect a positive review and if
the Guest is not happy let me know privately
and leave NO review.
IF this warning has caused you any real
concern PLEASE do not come, nor book me.
Everyone else WELCOME to a door to a fun and cultural worldly Heaven,
Japanese Style.

We had a great time staying at Jay's house. It was v. Spacious and comfortably fitted all 6of us in 3 different rooms, and the were plenty of gas heaters provided (1 per room) to ensure we never got cold. Jay's done some nifty changes around the house to make things more convenient too. Plenty of snacks and condiments were provided so we didn't have to buy any sauces or cooking stuffs. The house itself was actually at a different address, not near Nakatsu, but actually next to Juso Station which is a main station and had access to all local and express Hankyu trains which was a bonus! Jay himself was an extremely helpful and generous host who gave us lots of tips on living in Japan and the local area. We had an unfortunate incident where the gas was temporarily cut off due to unusually high usage (there were 6 of us after all). And within Half an hour Jay had consulted the Gas Company and physically came over to help us reset the gas. So we were all very happy :):) Definitely great location and v.spacious place to stay in. Only downside is the stairs to the second level are rather steep .

Host is very kind hearted! Our flight delayed till midnight but he still waited for us. We paid 5000 JPY as OT cost. After all check in was done, it was 3 am in the morning. We got up at 7 am, but one friend locked herself inside the room, and we had to call host for help. This trip was very happy to stay here, the place is clean, quiet, comfortable!! We will choose Jay again at our next trip to Japan! But we will not trouble he that much!
