Ryokan Okuda
Ranked #232 of 407 Hotels / Ryokan in Kyoto
Reviewed June 3, 2012

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 the bathroom. The bath/shower is downstairs - lovely, deep, hot onsen and hand shower. Breakfast was served to us privately in a little breakfast room next to our bedroom. Very simple - just toast, fruit and tea/coffee but it was a nice way to start the day. The innkeeper was such a lovely man. He spoke only very limited English but we managed to communicate through hand signals, etc. On our last morning he walked us and our luggage out to the bus stop and helped us board the right bus for Kyoto station. The location is what makes his prices a bit higher - right in the heart of Gion, easy walking distance to restaurants, temples in Eastern Kyoto, the main shopping street, etc.

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 bath every night. The ryokan was quiet and we rarely heard other occupants. My husband had no trouble finding it from the train station (we took the shinkansen from Tokyo). I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a unique experience!

Room Tip: We had the room upstairs in the back which had a seating area and a private bathroom. The room was...
