The place is a 2-storey semi-detached house in a quiet farming area just 10 minutes walk to JR Nishi-Akashi station -15min to Kobe or Himeji, 38min to Osaka +only 3hrs to Tokyo by shinkansen!
Close to supermarket and shops, cafes, restaurants + 24hour convenience store.
The house has two entrances:
The 1st floor is your 1LDK with small private bathroom
(bedroom is 6 large size tatami mats)
The other entrance goes to the stairs for the 2nd floor (2 rooms and a verandah), which I use about two afternoons/evenings a week. If your relatives or friends visit Japan we can organize these rooms as short-term guest rooms. Of course you can use the verandah whenever I am not there.
It is an unfurnished place as is normal in Japan but I bought light fittings, stove, fridge and basic stuff for my cousin.
Long-term contract(at least 1 year) for quiet single person.
39,500 yen month (No key money but do need a refundable deposit)
Pay for your own utilities/Internet
No pets allowed but maybe if you have an old indoor cat we can find a way to hide it :)
If you are looking for a place you can have home-parties and entertain friends, play loud music and be a typical "gaijin", then this is NOT the place for you :) But if you need a quiet, but really convenient, place to escape to after work then this might be what you are looking for. Being a farming area = lots of free organic veg and of course free fresh air :)
I really do not need a tenant but I have lived in Japan for a long time and I know the challenges of being a foreigner in this confusing country. I like to help people who have similar lifestyles or interests to me so I need to know a little about you please.
