Hi!! Welcome to Osaka Hana Hostel
What’s the kraken? haha
I had been stayed in Brisbane for 10 months for working holiday.
It was lovely and awesome!
Everyone who I met in Australia is so helpful and thoughtful…
If I had not met them I could not learn English and spend great time…
My English is still not enough, but I would like to make your day in Japan!
So let me help as much as I can.
Please tell me about your country and language!
I am very curious!!
I am looking forward to seeing you.

I used to live in New Zealand and Australia when I was a student. Inspired by this experience, I have interested in the other countries, too. I have traveled 51 countries so far.

Moved to Osaka in 2015 and I have loved this city because the food such as Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki are so delicious and people are also nice and kind.

I will try my best to make all the guests at Osaka Hana Hostel feel the same way with me.
