WHO ARE WE?
THE LAST WORD
We have lived in Japan for over 15 years, and we love the Kansai area and want you to be able to enjoy your stay here, just like a local.

Once again, ask us any questions you may have, and then book this fantastic apartment as fast as you can. You are going to love your time spent living in the center of Osaka!

Other Things to Note
We do not accept check-ins after 22:00 (10 pm). Be sure to confirm your travel itinerary for your estimated arrival time at the apartment, and contact us for advice if you are not sure if you will be able to make it in time from Tokyo or Kansai International Airport (KIX).
We have truly enjoyed our time hosting more than 450 guests in two years in our homes in Osaka, Kyoto, and Nara, but we do have lives outside of hosting. That means that while we always plan to meet our guests for checking-in and orientation to the apartment, the neighborhood, and Kansai in general, we don't have all day to wait around for your arrival.
We have had more than our fair share of guests telling us, "we should be there around noon", and then come walking through the door hours later because they "wanted to grab some lunch, do some shopping, and look round the area" before arriving to check in.
When you tell us your approximate time of arrival for checking-in that first day, please do your best to keep to that stated time. If you are unable to keep to your given schedule, then do us the courtesy of calling or emailing us immediately with your new plans. While we can be flexible within an hour or so, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to wait for you to arrive much beyond that time frame.
In short, please be as considerate of our time and schedule, as we are of yours. Thank you!
House Rules: Hey, we want you to have a fantastic time on your visit to Kansai, Japan. We will treat you as a cherished guest, but frown upon:
-You treating our cherished home like any ol' hotel because you "paid for it". Sorry, but money at the door does not buy you the right to trash our place. We would expect things to be in the same state as you found them in on your arrival.
These seem like pretty common sense rules to us, and hardly worth the mention. Experience has taught us how wrong we could be.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
