House details












Tsubame is a beautifully designed 60-square-meter vacation home located in western Osaka’s harbor area. Artfully renovated in early 2019, this home offers stylish interiors, an earthy Japanese color scheme, and plenty of room suitable for groups of up to seven people.

The home’s design, layout, and location make it an excellent choice for a variety of traveling groups. Those who want to embrace the Japanese interior design style but want to retain western comforts will love Tsubame’s effortless blend of both elements. Whether it’s hosting groups of friends, families, or even couples who want a little extra space, anyone who stays at Tsubame feels right at home.

One of the other excellent and popular features of the house is that it’s just a 35 minutes walk or a 10-minute drive to Universal Studios Japan’s  (USJ’s) doorstep. Home to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the newly opened SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™ Universal Studios Japan is one of Osaka’s most popular tourist destinations and is well worth a visit next time you’re in town.

It’s an ideal home for those wanting to stay a little longer, as it’s adaptable and easily livable. If you want to spend a little extra time in Osaka, Shiki offers discounted prices for monthly and long-term rentals so that you can move right in and start enjoying the city.


Tsubame boasts an incredible location near some of the biggest theme parks in Osaka. A short taxi ride will take you to Universal Studios Japan (USJ) in under five minutes, and Utsubo Park, Kyocera Dome, and Osaka Aquarium in under 15 minutes. When you want to venture into central Osaka, Chidoribashi Station is just ten minutes away by foot. 

From the house, it’s a direct train to Osaka Namba Station, where you can visit attractions like the Dotonbori canal, Hozen-ji Temple, Shin-Kabukiza Theatre, and Kuromon Ichiba Market. For a day-trip to Kobe or Nara, the Hanshin Namba line provides a convenient connection between the three cities. 

If guests want to explore Osaka’s waterfront side, there’s a direct bus line, number 81, which travels between the house and Maishima Sports Island and takes about 30 minutes. Around the area are an athletic field, a BBQ park, and a scenic seaside promenade. 

Tsubame offers good access by car to both the shinkansen (bullet train) and the airport, with Shin-Osaka Station a 20-minute drive and Kansai International Airport a 40-minute drive. Alternatively, you can reach Shin-Osaka Station, the station which services the shinkansen in 40 minutes using public transport, and Kansai International Airport in one hour twenty minutes on the train.


Tsubame is ideal for groups who want a full living and dining space to relax and unwind. The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, stovetop, microwave, and all the cooking and cleaning utensils you may need for a delicious meal at home. The living room features a 55-inch television with Netflix for streaming your favorite movies and TV programs, and the bathroom is stocked with toiletries, bath products, hair dryer, and fluffy towels. There’s also a washing machine, detergent, iron, and ironing board for convenience. 

At the front of the home is a large genkan area, which leads into a spacious kitchen and dining area. Featuring a fully-equipped kitchen, six-seat dining table, and separate restroom, this is a wonderful place to share meals and entertain. Sliding doors open into a spacious living room with traditional tatami floors and a convertible single sofa bed. The back of the home is where you’ll find a modern bathroom with a separate shower room and a luxurious, deep bathtub. 

The second floor opens onto a lovely first bedroom with tatami flooring, a semi-double bed, and rustic wood beam ceilings. The second bedroom has two double beds, designer wallpaper, and cozy recessed lighting. A shoji (Japanese sliding paper door) separating the two rooms can be opened to create a spacious communal area. 

All the beds, including the single sofa bed in the living room, are fitted with soft, comfortable sheets and bedding. For your comfort, every room in the house has an air conditioning and heating console.
