French guest house located in the Osaka city which aims to be a bridge between Japanese and French culture but also to welcome you in a very comfortable and friendly space. L'Auberge du Tanuki Noir (Maison D'hôtes) is a non-smoking, fully air-conditioned area with a concierge service for luggage and also for receiving parcels. You can find the free following equipment: Wi-Fi, fully equipped shared kitchen, digital bathroom, large bath products and towel, HD TVs in the living rooms, coffee machine, oven, microwave, Kakigori machine etc.
I discovered Japan in March 2016 as part of the gift I gave to my mother, we traveled throughout Japan for 40 days on a tour. Following this discovery I found that there was no service for the French, so I returned several times in 2016 to deepen my knowledge of the country. At the end of 2016 I definitively left France to come and prepare my living time in Japan with only a large backpack and my English as luggage. After many adventures but also 22 months of constant efforts, I was finally able to open my guest house and start my activity here in Osaka.
The Benten district is located 12 minutes by Jr from Umeda station with direct access to Kansai Airport (KIX). You will find the Sanja temple, the great Solaniwa onsen, neighborhood restaurants and shopping centers. It is also right next to USJ (Universal Studio Japan) and the Kaiyukan Aquarium.
