This is a home stay type guest house. Iron-framed 3 stories building. Guest rooms are 1st floor. We (family of 3) live on 2nd and 3rd floors. The guest rooms will be comfortable for 3 people to stay. Three beds are available. Kitchen and full bathroom that guests can use exclusively are equipped on 1st floor. Other basic amenities are also there. No shared ones. (See pictures.) I am fond of talking with guests in English. Long stay recommended, because you can enjoy yourself staying in Japan.

The space

The guest rooms are large enough to hold 3 guests. When you stay here more than 1 month, I recommend 2 people. You can use the rooms more spaciously. You can use various pieces of kitchenware and tableware at the kitchen freely. Luggage space is also available.

Guest access

All space of 1st floor is exclusively for the guests. We accept only one group of guests. So, you can enjoy 1st floor as your own spaces. Only exception is the entrance where is shared space. You are not allowed to go upstairs and to enter the storage houses in backyard. Thank you for your cooperation.

Interaction with guests

I like conversation with people. I am happy to help you plan a trip or give some advice for staying in Japan, if guests like. We never trespass guests' privacy, if guests want to keep themselves only.

Other things to note

I might get into the guest rooms for the purpose of cleaning or maintenance. I will knock on the door and say "Hello" before getting into, when cleaning or maintenance is needed.

This is a 6-star hotel or higher. It was truly a pleasure staying at Otto-san's house. He was extremely helpful, friendly, kind, and joyful! He even went to the station to pick us up, ensuring that we get the destination correctly! The place was clean, close to the station, and close to major sights! About a 3 minute walk to the nearest station and plenty of convenient stores nearby. He email us, providing his best of his abilities to assist us! Please stay at his place, you will NOT be disappointed, guaranteed!!

Another 10-day stay at Otto-san's place. Very well taken care of and spent some time together at restaurants and Karaoke, as well as having a sukiyaki dinner prepared by Otto-san. Great experience and spending well within budget as can buy food stuff at nearby supermarkets to cook. I look forward to come back for the third time!

We highly recommend anyone to stay at Otto's place. If you are concerned that it is not right in Osaka, don't be. It is a five minute walk from Sakaishi station with a rapid train into Osaka. It is close to the grocery store and nice and quiet. Otto is meticulous and everything about the home is perfect. Otto met is at the train station and walked us to his home. He has fresh slippers for us and has purchased some food already which was so wonderful as we were starving! The kitchen is very well equipped and has tea, coffee, salt, pepper and oil, making cooking a breeze. He has a house manual with very clear directions on how to operate everything so there is no guessing what button is the right one. He also labeled all the soap, shampoo etc. in English. His home is very quiet, safe and is perfect for a couple or a family of 3 (our 8 month baby was with us) who wants easy access to Osaka but somewhere quiet and homey to come back to.

Thank you very much for staying here and giving us a nice review. Your daughter is so cute (KAWAII). I was very happy to meet her. Surprising enough, she was not noisy as such a very small. I hope all of you will come to Sakai again.

We were so taken care of by Otto-san, right from the picking up at the train station, and plenty of info given before departure. The room is on the ground floor with easy access. We had the entire floor with all the needed amenities, kitchenwares, washing machine and you name it. Otto-san even stocked up enough of good food in the fridge for the guests to kick-start their stays. We had dinner twice with Otto-san at two good restaurants,one at Shin-Inmamiya (八重勝)and once at Korean Barbecue restaurant nearby. Both restaurants recommended were exceedingly good. We went to Nara Park, also recommended by Otto-san, lots of deers. Otto-san gave us some seeds to feed the deers. We did so much shopping. AEON mall near Yamato River is good place to shop, H & M in there was good and cheap. Yamato River was very pretty and good for cycling. You could see lots of birds. A lot of sakura cherry blossom if you come end March to early April. Nara Park has the most Sakura around and very pretty. Vini is staying at Sakai to do one year of Japanese Language studies, and she needed a bicycle. Otto-san brought us to buy one secondhand one which was good and cheap. We strongly recommend Otto-san's place to anyone who wishes to explore Osaka and nearby places. Trust me, you will not regret it staying here!

On our arrival he took us round the neighbourhood n showed us shops we'd need. He provided enough food in the fridge for us so we didn't have to go directly to the shops. The place was really well equipped with everything you'd need. It was very clean. He was always helpful with information. He gave us privacy. We enjoyed "happy hour" each week and we'd speak some English. He explained many mysteries about Japan to us. We felt cared for by him, but he wasn't invasive. We were here for 40 days. We bought second bicycles which meant we could ride to many interesting places near here. The rotenmbro very close to here is wonderful.

Thank you very much for staying our house and the nice review you sent. I also enjoyed talking with you over a couple of drink as "happy hour". You are the one of the best guests in Airbnb, I suppose. I hope you will come again here in Sakai in near future.

집이 사카이시에 있어서 대중교통을 이용하는 여행이라면 여행루트에 따라 조금 차이가 있겠지만, 렌트카라면 강력 추천합니다. 오사카시로 올라가기에도 와카야마시로 내려가기에도 괜찮은 위치! Otto씨가 처음에 배웅도 나와주시고, 과일을 비롯해 먹거리들도 준비해주시고, 지내는 동안 우리집처럼 편히 있을 수 있게 많이 배려해주셔요. 늘 연락하면 답변도 빠르고 친절합니다. 마지막날 밤에는 같이 신세카이에서 맛있는 것도 먹었습니다. 아무래도 일본의 집들은 건물과 난방 방식이 우리나라랑 달라서 겨울엔 조금 춥겠지만 난방을 빵빵하게 하고 자면 됩니다. 주택가라 조용하고, 차로 5분 이내(도보 8~10분 이내)에 마트들과 편의점들도 있고, 차로 5분정도 거리에 온천(목욕탕)도 두군데 있습니다. 여러모로 정말 너무 잘 지내다 왔어요. オットーさん、ありがとうございました!
