Hisae-san is really friendly and do everything she can for help you.
Also its a great cook.
I have enjoyed my stay at their home.
Great location to get to USJ, downtown and if you want to see the harbours. I only stayed 2 nights, but it was good :)
Mimura-San was a great host! She fetched us from the station we arrived at when we informed her the train was delayed. She made us feel really welcome and we even had dinner together with the other homestay guests. We stayed at her place because we wanted to go to summer sonic, that was nearby. Her home is really close to USJ too! She lent us her bikes and we cycled there and back, without having to squeeze into the trains with the crowds. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Mimura-San!!!
She was so nice and frindly. Dinner was very good and we had a lot of fun.
The stay was really nice. Hisae was kind cooked for us unforgetable dishes und dressed us up in real kimonos.
We also got the opportunity to go to a baseball game with Hisae and our roommates, which was so much fun. We definitely recommend.
As it is not placed in the middle of Osaka you need a 10min walk or a taxi ride to the next JR Station. But that is already the only drawbag discovered.
We liked it very much :)
My review is late, but better late than never!
Mimura-san's place was great!!! I went there with my sister and the room was perfect! We slept in a traditional Japanese room, with futons. We shared the place with another guest. I loved the place because it was fully decorated with One Piece merch!
Mimura-san lives next door, so it's easy to contact her if you need something. She picked us from the train station and was willing to drop us near the aquarium, but we cancelled the activity. The train station isn't far from the place. Easy to go downtown! Well located.
For breakfast, hmm yogurt, bread, some noodles.. Eatable. Depends every morning!
She doesn't speak English, but her son does so no worries if you can't speak Japanese!
Truly a great experience. Worth the money!! Mimura-san, arigatou gozaimasu!
It's our first time to be the guests to stay with a homestay family after we have been a homestay's host around 6 years ago. Thanks a lot to Hisae for her kindness to pick up us from the train station in the late night. She had prepared the delicious Japanese breakfast every morning for us. She also helped us to wear the Japanese traditional Kimono. We're really felt that we had a local living style. Our best experience in Osaka were the times spent with the Hisae family. Thank you for everything. We will miss you and hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes.
The family is very welcoming. Every morning there was a lovingly prepared Japanese breakfast on the table. It's such a great feeling waking up to a prepared meal.
They are interested in your plans and also offer help if you need any.
The area is rather quiet, but with the nearest station you have easy access to all the surrounding cities, such as Nara, Kobe and Kyoto. Universal Studios is only a few minutes away.
Since they offer more than one room you might be able to meet some other travelers. One night we all went to a karaoke bar and had lots of fun!
I am glad I stayed here for the first time when I came to Japan. Hisae is a very kind person who helps you when you have questions and gives good advise when you go sightseeing in Osaka. From the station it takes only 10 minutes to Umeda so it's quite central. I can always recommend staying here.
Stay at Mrs. Mimura lovely place was my first using Homestay and it was absolutely great!
All the rules were fair and clear and I felt even better than at home with it.
I highly valued the privacy I was blessed with, although, when I needed it, we have spent some wonderful time together.
I highly recommend staying with Mrs. Mimura.
I will definitely go straight to her place next time I will be in Osaka!
