A very nice experience. We liked the traditional Japanese ryokan style with tatami mats, the location (walking distance from some of the major temples and the geisha district) and the very helpful host.

We stayed here for three nights and used it as our base for exploring kyoto. We had a large room with Tatami mats, and a screen with seats and an en-suite behind it. The en-suite was chilly in March, but that's the only negative thing I can say about the place. The owner is a fantastically friendly gent who couldn't... More

My husband and I would like to try living in a Japanese house. We decided to choose ryokan Okuda in a very last minute. Beside its great location, we like it because the pics gave us more rustic and traditional feel :) Well it was a bit hard to find the ryokan luckily I know a bit of hiragana and... More

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

Staying in Gion

Neighborhood Profile
Gion
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
