A 360 degree view of Osaka is very unusual. I have a fabulous rooftop terrace next to a shrine with 600 year old trees. The apartment has stained glass windows and is unlike anything you will find in Osaka. An authentic Japanese neighborhood. Great! I am on the third floor with no elevator - but my 80 year old parents are able to negotiate them! I have two beautiful felines which add a lot of fun to my space.
You need to remove your shoes at the entrance to my apartment. If you get cold feet please bring some slippers, though I do supply some indoor slippers and I always have extra warm clothes you can borrow if you need to. If you are coming from a hot climate - I have loads of jackets you can borrow so you dont need to bring too much. More room to carry home your shopping! You can smoke, but that must be outside and on the roof space. You cannot be too noisy late in the evening, as this is a residential area, though drinking on the roof is quite acceptable. You need to be an animal lover as non animal lovers will not be welcome. Basic respect should be given to neighbours and all those around you.
The area is extremely safe - so if you decide to come back late - there is absolutely no problem with walking home at night. There is no curfew at all. You can come and go as you like.
