★ description

our house is located in a small, safe, quiet neighborhood surrounded by gentle flowing rice fields & a serene, peaceful bamboo forest.

we designed & renovated our house & property to offer guests a perfect balance of traditional japanese detail with touches of asian decor here & there throughout the house, all the while providing modern conveniences that include 2 fully equipped kitchens, wifi thru-out the property, a spacious indoor/outdoor shower & bath room, and separate toilets for visitors.

the house & property are quite large (by japanese standards…) and can accommodate a large number of guests—even 15 or more. even so, you will no doubt often feel that you have the entire place all to yourself.
it is perfect for families with kids (ask about possible discounted rates for young children), couples who want privacy & intimacy, or backpackers who want to take advantage of our years of experience hosting & guiding others around the wonderful nature spots that the kansai area has to offer.

you will find everything you need here, whether you are choosing to take it slow & relax & get away from it all in serene solitude, or planning to spend each day & nite out site-seeing, shopping, eating, drinking, dancing & partying.

we provide bicycles for free. use them to get to & from our local station, to go grocery shopping or to dine out at one of the many restaurants in the area. or simply explore the area, riding along the river nearby, visiting the neighborhood shrine, or visiting the local hotspring facility just 10min away (which, by the way, is one of the most famous in the osaka area!).

accommodation in japan

whether it's a condo, apartment, hotel room or private residence, japan is notorious for small, cramped dwellings.
japanese houses are not constructed for privacy. if there are walls at all between the rooms then usually they're very thin and, more often than not, simply sliding partition doors.
however, our properties are quite large by japanese standards.
our photos do not use a wide angle or fisheye lens—so be careful when browsing listings by other hosts. most likely their places are very small & cramped.
our decoration & furnishings are sparse & simple, on purpose. we know that foreign guests need space to relax & accommodate suitcases & personal items, etc. when browsing other hosts places, be mindful of cramped conditions that appear cozy & home-like in photos, but actually will leave you no space to move around.

who can stay

first we want to say that we absolutely do _not_ discriminate.
our listings & any activities that we host & take part in are open to all people at all times. we do our utmost to be fair and assess each inquiry individually on its own merits.
