Where To Stay In Osaka: West Japan Airbnb



If you’re looking for accommodation on your trip to Osaka, I highly recommend this airbnb place we rented just last week. It is located inside one of the alleys of Kuromon Market. 5 minutes walk from Nippombashi station. Dotonburi and Shinsaibashi are 10 minutes by foot and so is Namba Center.

It has 3 bedroom 1 toilet and 1 bath. Very spacious and can accommodate a group of 10.

All in one Japanese toilet! Over toilet sink, wherein after you flush, water comes out of the faucet on top of the toilet for you to wash your hands then recycled to fill the toilet reservoir for the next use. Awesome! It also come equipped with sensors and automated bidet for front and rear wash.


One of the three rooms where four of us slept (we are a group of six). No beds just tatami mats and futons.

The kitchen is well equipped.   On our fourth night, we decided to eat in. Around 5pm before the market close, most of the sushi and sashimi are on sale. We bought those and cooked kobe beef. Beef cuts and ready to eat salad inside the supermarket are not bad either. Even the strawberries are on sale at this time 😉 . Food choices is never a problem because you are inside Kuromon Market where the food is epic.


Just outside the alley is a 24 hour supermarket.



Yi, our host, was very patient and helpful in answering all my inquiries and questions thru email before and during our stay. She sent a vey detailed info on how to get there without hassle. The only con I could think of was there is no pocket wifi included with our accomodation. That’s why we rented one from Pupuru. All in all we really enjoyed our stay here.

So here’s the video of the place if you wanna see. Please excuse our voices 🙂 .

Disclaimer: This is not a paid post. We paid the amount they advertised (group of 6 for 5d4n).
