Mamiko San is such a great host! It was my first time in Japan but Mamiko San make it easy. The apartment was very nice and warm for me and my friend. Hosted by Mamiko San for 5 days 4 night, we felt like we were actually living at our own apartment! You don't have to bring along your towel, body shampoo, hair shampoo and conditioner. All are provided by Mamiko San! Very convenience!
Mamiko San also provide a slow cooker and non stick pan. There's also a small fridge and even washing machine! About the bed, there are also extra pillows and futons and blankets inside the wardrobe. Because me and my friend are like American size woman, one of us had to sleep on the futon. But it was very comfortable that we didn't feel tired next morning.
We arrived early in the morning at Kansai airport which at 8am. We asked Mamico San if we could check in earlier since we might feel tired from a long trip on the flight. Mamiko San allowed us and for your information, no extra charge on us!
The direction to the apartment from Shin-Osaka station was given clearly. When we arrived, there was a small construction near the apartment. Sadly it kind of noisy. But if you plan of traveling the whole day and not staying most of the time at the apartment like us whom only spent time at the apartment from 11 pm to 9am, it should be no problem.
Extra information, if you are a Muslim, the qiblat direction would be between '11 to 12 o'clock from the center door. Means you will stand and face the left corner of the room, near the TV. That was the qibla direction we used. If you are using an accurate app or compas, please check it again. We used Muslim pro app and also the direction of the sun.
All in all, Mamiko San is a great host! You can ask anything from her and she will try to reply you as soon as possible if she's not busy with her work. The apartment is fully furnished with nice amenities provided. I would recommend this apartment to all my friends if they want to travel to Japan and want to stay at Osaka prefecture.
Thank you so much Mamiko San for being a nice host to us. Hopefully we can meet in future!
