Wonderful!”

Location is wonderfully serene with beautiful scenery and clean air. Definitely check this place out if you're looking for an authentic onsen experience. From the rooms to the food to the hot springs themselves, everything was lovely. The rooms are a bit older, but we were still very comfortable. The yukatas were a nice touch, and we wore them to dinner and breakfast. The food was very delicious - the hosts also own a miso shop and the miso soups were amazing! There were a few hot springs you could utilize - an indoor one, one just outside, and one in a round bath area surrounded by woods and nature. Note that the hot springs swap, so make sure you enter the right one! The location is a bit further away in the mountains, so take the 17 bus from Kyoto station to the last stop and give the host a call. A staff will pick you up to bring you to the ryokan.

This onsen/ryokan is really, really lovely. The food is traditional and good. I loved the hot pot. There are many temples within walking distance. Take the 17 bus from Kyoto station to the last stop. Give the Ryokan a call and someone will come collect you. The perfect end to a day of walking is relaxing in hot water. Perfect.

Very nice and quiet place ”

I stayed one night in this mishunku japanese traditional house. It was a very pleasant stay. The house and room are very simple, no luxury (which is ok because I didn't come here for luxury !), but quiet and peaceful. I loved the area, the room (futons are so cosy with all the blankets), the diner and breakfast. By the way I was shocked to see other guests not touching the breakfast at all and then they just left the eating area with all the food on the table ... So impolite ! No respect at all! All the food was really good with fine dishes, pickles, home made miso ... Typical and delicious. I also enjoyed the Onsen (traditional outside hot bath) 3 times, amazing moments surrounded by the nature ! So if you are looking for a quiet place (with quiet staff) to feel the traditional vibes of japanese country side, this is the perfect place. But if you are looking for luxury, proper bed, western breakfast, staff always behind you asking if you need anything ... this place is not for you.

Nice town nice package and value for money”

The Ryokan is not able to reach by walk from the final stop bus station, but no worries, there will be a van to pick you up from bus station, and you will need to prepare the money in your mobile to call the resort host. The Ryokan is real traditional Japanese that you can experience real Japan. Ohara has not much population and people are just nice as local, most of them are farmers. Ohara is charming and cute surrounded by greenery and mountain. The village is really quiet, but I've never felt alone when I traveled alone...

Ohara No Sato is tucked in treeline on a lush hillside. Ohara is a very charming farming village with important temples near by. Expect to : wear a yukata, sleep on tatami, eat local miso hotpot, be naked with strangers and respect the rules and traditions of a Japanese onsen.

for the money, you can't beat it. it gives you the full onsen experience. it's like taking a bath in a Korean Dolsot Bibimbap tub. The dinner package is decent in a dining room with everyone else. so its less personal than the traditional onsen experience.

Thank you for coming to stay. You had two different ID reservations for the first and second nights. You make a reservation with different rates for the first night and the second night. When you booked my Minshuku, you checked the details of the reservation and if there was a problem, there was no problem making the reservation you wanted. I checked the futons and pillows in your room, but there was no problem. As a precaution, I asked a futon supplier for cleaning. I am sorry that you are not satisfied.

Thank you for staying. My Minshuku aims to maintain Minshuku, a traditional Japanese countryside. So the type is different from the hotel in front of the station or modern Ryokan. There are no convenient and comfortable facilities compared to them. If you need comfortable and convenient facilities, the hotel in front of the station is better. Basically, all of my Minshuku services are self-service. Instead, you can experience Minshuku, a traditional Japanese countryside. Futon, Miso, Onsen, Kotatsu, Nature, etc. Recently, facilities like my Minshuku have been reduced. I am sorry that this time did not fit your taste. Thank you.

HEAVENLY!”

Food, Onsen and Staff

Ohara no sato is a quaint little hovel in North Kyoto; even though Ohara sounds like its part of Kyoto, it feels like a small village on its own actually. There's only a few buses that go to Ohara from Kyoto station (you HAVE to do your research properly on transport). People in Ohara are marvelously helpful and nice, though I wouldn't recommend going there without at least some basic Japanese knowledge. Onsen is heavenly for first-timers whom never tried Onsen before. Water is just nice at 28C and there's 3 small public baths (including 2 open baths) + not much crowd. At night it has literally the bare minimal street lamps in rural surroundings, though walking/exploring in the daytime is very refreshing and fun. Please do not attempt to go the hotel at night; tery to travel to Ohara no Sato before sundown or esle you will stuck navigating in the darkness alone. Like i said, it is literally a village on its own and activity dies down after sunset.

Awsome Experience”

Indoor and Outdoor Onsen

We took the bus from Kyoto to Ohara No Sato for one night to experience traditional Japanese Bed & Breakfast with Hot Spring. The ride took about 50 minutes, and we called the Inn at the bus station for a pick up, and there were there within 10 minutes. You could ask the bus station attendee for an area map and walk there, and it should be less than 15 minutes. It was cold and snowy, and we had a medium suitcase with us, so waited for the pick up service. The room and the inn is very authentic Japanese, and there is a public bathroom. Dinner was amazing! It was a nice miso soup hot pot. Make sure you are ready to eat while sitting on the floor and also sleeping is on the floor, that's Japanese style. The onsen experience was amazing, because it was outdoor with bamboo trees around, and it was snowing! They switched the male and the female onsen every other day so you get to experience a slightly different setting. The staffs speak very little English, but enough. "Food, rice here, shower there, bed here, key here, safety box there, dinner 7pm. etc."

First of all, communicating with the staff was very convenient. We came right at the tails of a typhoon with evacuation warnings but they helped assure us of the safety and whether or not the buses were running. They were also super considerate and willing to allow us to cancel for free the day before. They provide shuttle service to and from Ohara bus stop, which was important since we arrived at 8pm when it was dark. Most of the staff had at least basic level of English to communicate. Check in was a breeze and they let us eat dinner (which we booked with the room) as they processed our ID’s/passport (make sure to have your passport/zairyu). The miso nabe was flavorful and more than enough. The unlimited side dishes and various kinds of miso were a treat. The rooms were tatami, clean with a/c and a fan. The baths were also clean and functional. 15mins from bus stop,5mins from Jikkoin. Ohara is known for shiso but do try Oohara no sato’s miso and miso ice cream, if you dare.

Ohara No Sato was an absolute delight. We loved the facility, the staff and the food. The onsens were fabulous! Especially since we had the surprise of a fresh snow fall! It was wonderful. We highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to enjoy a traditional Japanese guest house and onsen. We only stayed one night but would recommend two minimum.

Relaxing cultural and countryside experience”

Onsen, kind staff, good food

Excellent ryokan! Very close to Sanzen-in Temple, one of the best temples and gardens I've experienced. Great, friendly staff who picked us up at the Ohara bus station. Great location for people who want to avoid crowds of tourists and quiet nights with an onsen that looks out towards the mountains. Natural hot spring tub with maple leaves hanging overhead and mountains in the background. Excellent place for meditating and relaxing. We went sightseeing in Kyoto on day one, and the walk back at night from the bus station to the ryokan was peaceful with lots of stars in the sky. Kyoto Station is one hour from Ohara bus station. Very grateful I chose this ryokan!
