Mimura-San was an excellent host. She has an excellent knowledge of attractions within Osaka and the surrounding area. Upon my arrival, Hisae and her husband provided me with Hanshin Tigers baseball tickets and we attended the game together. It is an experience I will not easily forget.
Hisae is also an amazing cook and provided hearty breakfasts. Ask for a home-cooked Okonomiyaki or Takoyaki (Osaka famous foods) and she will prepare the ingredients for you and show you how to cook them.
The location of the Mimura's apartment is central and is easily connected to all parts of Osaka by the JR loop line. Osaka also has a lively craft beer and foodie scene, ask Mimura-san for advice if you are interested in culinary adventures. Overall I would recommend the Kita-Umeda, Shinsekai, and Namba districts for food, drink and nightlife.
If I return to Osaka I would easily stay with Mimura-san again, the apartment is very clean, spacious and full of amenities, in addition to the location.
Personne charmante sa info erronée mais bien ds l'ensemble sa petite à améliorée bonne experience
Very cosy and comfortable and, as I quickly discovered, a great location to discover Osaka from. Hisae is very friendly and accommodating. I would come back again.
Hisae and her familiy was very hearthful and kindness. The appartment was a perfect place to go to other sightseeing. Also the location is amazing. I will come back :)
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
It was a good experience. It's a very nice and convenient family.
The bedroom is very comfortable and food is very good.
C'était une bonne expérience. La famille est très gentille et pratique (ils m'ont cherché à la gare).
La chambre était très confortable et la nourriture nickel !
Hisae is a fantastic host, I had a great time staying with her family. She offered a warm welcome and even collected me and my heavy bags from the train station. Her home is in a good location within easy walking distance to the nearest station - from here it's very convenient to catch connections into the city centre.
She is a great cook and even though she says she can't speak English, she really does speak a little. So don't worry about communication issues. Even though I stayed for just one week, I had such a nice time in Osaka and I will definitely stay here again!
Fantastic stay. Very nice and welcoming family.
I felt welcomed at the Mimura house, and if I had any questions I always got help. I also got privacy in my room even while other guests were there. You can survive on English here, but if you want to practice your Japanese that works too! Definitely good for experiencing the culture first-hand.
