Warmly welcomed by the female owner and although she doesn't know how to speak English but she manage to show us what to do in the Ryokan patiently. It is located just opposite Kyoto hospital. So you have to bear with the siren in the midnight :) the room is tatami style, so bear with the noise of the next... More

Very rustic feel, coupled with a very amiable old owner who speaks excellent English. Having an onsen bath was a pleasant surprise -the owner will ask you in advance when you want a bath, as he has to get the water running. The rooms were simple but equipped with the necessary stuff. Our room didn't have a private bathroom, but... More

We recently stayed in this lovely Ryokan for 2 nights and would to have stayed longer. The wonderfully friendly host has limited English but we managed to understand each other very well. I wasn't expecting the onsen so that was a lovely surprise. We had a large tatami room with ensuite and sitting area behind a paper screen...all beautifully traditional.... More

You have to do this. Brilliant. I've stayed at Okuda Ryokan twice now. Once in 2010 with my Mother and my Aunt for 3 nights and the second time was until just yesterday for 4 nights with my partner. I just love it. It's extremely traditional with tatami mats, futons, sliding paper doors within the rooms, green tea sets etc.... More

Ryokan Okuda is a very simple but yet a warm accommodation; it is located in a quite street near the Gion area which is one of the prime tourist locations. The owner is very hospitable and his simple breakfast was a perfect start for our day. We had bath and toilet inside our room which was very spacious for japan's... More

Ryokan Okuda is comfortable and clean. Our room was nice and large with a small sitting area off the main tatami mat room and while it wasn't ensuite there was a sink in the room. There were bathrooms down the hall which are shared but it's a very small inn (maybe 4 rooms?) so I never encountered anyone else in... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights during a week-long visit to Japan (my first time). We loved the location, as we could walk to many of the Kyoto sights while at the same time able to experience a traditional Japanese inn in a quiet part of town. The innkeeper made breakfast for us each morning and drew our... More
