Lovely quite location, beautiful garden. The place is not far from many restaurants, shops and Osaka castle. You do need to take transports to go Osaka's main attractions (Dotombori, America mura...). We stayed in the HUGE tea room for 3 days. Our hosts were both friendly, helpful and welcoming. Having stayed in other minshukus, we found the place was a little bit overpriced but otherwise very enjoyable!
