We are a couple of teachers, travelers, and animal lovers looking for one or two people to watch over our home and 2 young cats from late September to mid October. This is a great time to be in the Kansai area of Japan as the weather is nice with warm days and cool evenings.
Our apartment is a mix of modern and traditional on the top floor of a 4 story building overlooking the surrounding neighborhood. There is NO elevator so you must be fit enough to walk up and down several flights of stairs. It is also a hilly neighborhood so you will get your exercise! It is a residential area but we are located on the main street near some small traditional bars and restaurants. A grocery store is steps away and a 24 hour convenience store just 5 minutes walk. The nearest station is a 15 minute walk (uphill). It is on the Midosuji subway line which gives you direct access to all the most popular parts of Osaka city. There is a bus stop 5 minutes away that will take you to the subway station or Toyonaka station on the Hankyu line. We have a couple simple bicycles you are free to use as well (if you are brave enough to tackle the hills!) High speed WIFI available.
Our two adopted tabbys are twin brother and sister and will be six months old in October. They are inseperable, where you find one, the other is sure to be nearby (if not lying right next to them). Kiki is very playful, vocal, cuddly, and curious. She loves to be held. Shinobi, aka Shin-o, is the larger and lazier of the two. He is more independent and loves naps. They have had blood tests, vaccines, and will soon be fixed. They are strictly indoor cats.
Our vet is just around the corner and speaks English in addition to Japanese.
The twins love attention and affection. They are your typical kittens with bursts of high-energy play followed by long naps. Those with experience caring for cats are strongly preferred. You must be willing to spend most nights at the apartment and not be away for more than 2 days at a time.
It shouldn't be a problem though since you will be about an hour away from great places to explore including Kyoto, Kobe, and Nara. The bullet train from Shin-Osaka provides quick access to Tokyo, Nagoya, Hiroshima, Mt. Fuji, and more. We'll provide a lot of information, materials, and handy tips to optimize your experience. Like hiking, waterfalls, and nature? We know some great local trails and parks! Traveling on a budget? We can help! We speak English, Japanese, Portuguese, and some Spanish.
The apartment is eco-friendly and we appreciate those who share a desire to live in harmony with our Earth and all the creatures on it.
We look forward to learning more about you!
