Backyard Open!

We started to open the backyard of J-Hoppers Osaka for our guest!
It's been used by only staff,but we changed a half of the backyard to open space with some benches.
Though not many guests have used yet and no decorating because it's been still cold since we opened, but we expect that it would be a good place for our guests to relax in the sun, without climbing upstairs to the rooftop!
Also, we will have BBQ party there.. can't wait!!

*Opening hour*
(Because there is the elementary school right behind of us and we should care of them.)
Mon-Fri. 19:00-24:00
Sat.,Sun.and holiday 7:30-24:00

Plum blossom in Osaka

The plums started to blossom in Kansai ! If you are looking for some places to enjoy their sweet fragrance, you will of course think about Osaka Castle's park. But here comes some others recommendations in Osaka area :
* The Hiraoka Plum Garden, containing 400 trees. You can go there by Kintetsu train, in around 45mn from Osaka (440 yen, from Tsuruhashi St. to Hiraoka St.)
* The Domyoji Tenmangu Shrine, containing 800 trees. You can go there by Kintetsu train, in around 20mn from Osaka (340 yen, from Osakaabenobashi St. to Domyoji St.)
* A little bit farther, the Minabe Bairin Ume Festival, the largest plum grove in Japan : 80.000 trees. You can go there by JR train, in 2 hours from Osaka (4510 yen, from Nishikujo St. to Minabe St.)
