We loved our stay at the Hearton Nishi Umeda.
Even if it hadn't averaged less than AUD60/night it still would have been a great choice. Booked a semi-double so arrived knowing that room was small.
Check-in was so perfectly polite - he just wanted to check we knew we would only have one bed (we are a gay male couple) and he smiled when I said yes, we knew. Had room up on 18th floor and although would have been great to be looking out at Umeda Sky Building we had no complaints with view across to Hilton and beyond.
Pillows were very odd and imagine we could have asked for different/more but wasn't an issue.
Hotel is located right next to an arcade filled with restaurants and cafes and even a supermarket and it took all of five minutes to walk from the Osaka Station (not Shin Osaka Station). We caught a JR rapid from Kansai Station (about JPY2100 for two) instead of the high speed JR train as we knew we could walk from Osaka Station and njot have to change trains at SHin Osaka.
Had buffet breakfast one morning in the restaurant in the lobby and was perfectly adequate. Beers downstairs in the other restaurant and bit confused by happy hour as although we bought three each only first was at happy hour prices. Not worth worrying about.
Used laundry down in the basement - JPY300 for a wash and 100 per 15 minutes of dry. For us a god send as we sweat like pigs while we were in Osaka, and continue to as I sit here in Hiroshima typing this.
Highly recommend the Hearton Nishi Umeda

The walk yesterday had inflamed my toe beyond the initial onset of the gout. Fortunately, checkout time wasn't until eleven and we were able to extend that until …
... where priests in robes compose poems to pray for good fortune for the year ahead. Once the poems are written the priests place them in a small wooden boats and send them floating down the stream in front of them. In the stream they also send small saucers of sake floating that you can try to fish out with a bamboo pole and drink for luck. At the end you can have a poem composed for you that you ...
... 13 meters above the hillside below. In addition, the Otowa waterfall is located at the base of the main hall. There are three streams of water where visitors can use the long arm cup to get water to drink. The site of the Kiyomizu Temple also features the three storied Koyaso Pagoda. While we were at Kiyomizu Temple, it started to rain on and off. We were able to use the Temple as shelter from the rain.
As we left Kiyomizu Temple, we wandered in ...

Game shows and afternoon dramas are back on some television stations, and the cherry blossoms will be out in two weeks. The average current memory capacity of most people is three weeks. All ought to be humming along again by April 10.
So, echoes of the past,...All Quiet on the Western Front.
