From the website:
it is a word that depicts sea surface and the sky
being brightly lit up by the setting sun.
Osaka is known as “The Land of setting sun”
since the sea lies to the west of the city.
OSHITERUYA is also a set phrase in Japanese poetry
that are called makurakotoba.
It exclusively describes Nanba region in Osaka
and it even appears in lots of poems
included in the oldest collection of Japanese poems – Man’yoshu.
In the days past, merchants traveling from east Japan to west Japan
would pray for safety of their families and their travels
each time they saw Nanba’s beautifully twinkling sea
after finishing a long and tiring travel.
We OSHITERUYA members do our very best
to make this place a beacon that brightens
travelers dreams and travels.
Furthermore, our guesthouse is conveniently located near
enchanting Imazato station area of Kintetsu line (Osaka-Nara),
which holds atmospheric old-styled trading districts.
