Interaction with guests

Me (Japanese) and my husband (English) have run Daruma house for a few years now and have had a chance to meet a lot of great people along the way.

We can help you plan your stay, offer advice on the quickest, cheapest and easiest way to get around Kansai and also offer recommendations for local restaurants, bars and things to do.

We can tell you the best and cheapest places to watch traditional Japanese or Kabuki, Bunraku, Rakugo and Sumo. Or to find something off the beaten path? We can help introduce you to the underground Osaka most tourists miss out on. Strange and interesting bars, performers, events and local bands.

*We can provide directions to our place from Namba or Kansai international airport or can come pick you up if you'd prefer.

Noriko was a cheerful host, her family was extremely nice and welcome. The place is around 15mins walk from Namba Station, surrounded by restaurants opens till midnight, it is very convenient for people who want to enjoy the night life of Osaka. The room itself is just like the picture, clean and big. I would definitely book again for my next trip to Osaka!

The house owners are very kind, and their English speaking is good, they can communicate well with foreign people, and the place is very close to the convenient store, and not far from the station.

Staying at Daruma House was like a dream to me. The tatami room is exactly like shown in the photos, if not better: cozy, lovely, spacious and definitely Japanese style, with a futon as bed, a small table, wardrobe, air-conditioning system, Japanese zabuton cushions and lamps. Daruma House also provided towels and the use of the kitchen, fridge and washing machine. I also asked Noriko-san whether a check-in could be moved up in the afternoon instead of the evening as agreed, due to a typhoon approaching the city, and she was quite helpful with that. The location itself is awesome, just a few minutes' walk from the Nanba shopping district. A conbini and an okonomiyaki restaurant are just opposite Daruma House. Should I come back to Osaka in the future, I'd definitely love to stay at Daruma House again, and feel like coming back home.

I really loved my stay there! Noriko and her husband are so kind and their son is so cute! The communication was good to. It is near to Osaka Namba Station (about 5-10 minutes walk) and easy to find because of the family mart and the vet around it. I got a diffrent room from the one at the pictures because I was just one person. It was smaller but still enough room and there even was a small balcony. I wish I can come back again someday! :)

Great traditional tatami mat room. Close to several supermarkets, and public transportation. Dontonbori and Den Den Town are at walkable distance. Great experience overall.
