Located 5mins from ShinOsaka JR/subway with all best things you need on the 2nd floor. Welcome drinks and frozen glasses and brand new aircon for all seasons. 40'tv,sofa, towels and heaps of others. Help with Japanese aged whisky for those who are looking!!!
Located on the 2nd floor, accessed by lift or stairs is easily accessed. Once in you are in you can find a clean, modern and bright apartment which has the options for cooking if need be, making toast for breakfast if, and a large fridge for anything you buy. It also has your welcome drinks inside!!! Use the frozen beer glasses too!!!
The bed is a typical Japanese double bed and bedding style is changed dependable on seasons. Fresh clean towels are supplied along with toothpaste and tooth brushes.
The 40' TV sits in the room opposite the sofa and you can sit on the bed and watch too after those long touristy days. A chromecast is also connected.
The bathroom is typically small like most Japanese ones, it has a bath, shower, sink, toilet all inside. It's cozy for sure and those who are tall like me may find the toilet experience interesting, with knees very near the wall. Hot water is always in ample supply and unlimited so don't be shy and is controlled by a unit next to the kitchen.
The kitchen is small but very usable for cooking with an IH cooker with pots and pans, plates, knifes/forks and chopsticks.
Tea and coffee is also there for you to use also.
If you are 4 guests then we will provide a mattress and futon and also a futon to go on the sofa bed.
