What is “CharinCo”?

CharinCo is the nickname for bicycle in Japanese. It is an endearing expression and what we call that old bike we hop on to meet friends for a drink in town. At CharinCo Hostel we are all about experiencing Osaka as a local would.
Hop on a Chari and explore Japan’s capital of food and fun.
See beyond Shinsaibashi, Dotonbori, Osaka Castle, and enjoy a slice of local life at your own pace


CharinCo is a home outside home for everyone. We have bunks, baths, western and Japanese style private rooms.
We have chic lounges, serving cold beers and, of course, bikes for rent.
Our friendly staff knows a thing or two about Osaka and are happy to point you to a good time around town.


CharinCo is located right in the middle of the action.
We are just 20 minutes by train from Osaka Station and a 10-minute walk from Osaka Castle.
The rest of Osaka is within 30 minutes by bike.
We love travelling through the city by bike.
There is simply no better way to take in all sights, sounds and flavours.
