    Aw man, that sounds so great! I started using Airbnb while I was on exchange this year, and I’m really glad that this alternative is available – instead of just (expensive) hotels or (crowded) hostels. Plus this apartment is all decked out in Muji! My fave!! Will definitely consider this if ever my family decides to go to Japan. Great post!

    Can’t wait for your article on your Japan Trip. We are booked to go there as well.

    nice review! very helpful for me as i am preparing for a trip to osaka this year.
    is it possible to request for the email address of teppei? i tried checking out the link that you provided in the article however, only his contact number is listed in his airbnb page. and i cant seem to find him immediately at airbnb. i was hoping to get in touch with him as soon as possible.

      Hi! I’m not sure it’s okay for me to give it, since in the AirBnb guidelines, we’re not encouraged to share our host’s info. You should try messaging him through AirBnb page/chat. He replies super fast!

    Hi Gretchen, thanks for this! I actually booked this Airbnb apartment for our trip next year! 🙂

    I have a question, though, when you applied for your visa, did you indicate in the application form that you are staying in an Airbnb apartment? I have read in some sites that Airbnb is actually illegal in Japan, and I’m just worried that this may jeopardise my visa application.

    Thanks in advance for the help! 🙂

      Hi Clarisa! Yes, I actually indicated that I was staying in an Airbnb apartment and even put the contact details of our host. 🙂
