What Are 'Onsens'?

'Onsen' is Japanese for 'hot spring'. As a volcanically active country, onsens can be found all over Japan. In Kinosaki Onsen the original temperature of the spring water exits the source at about 80ºC, and is then regulated by each bath house to around 42ºC. Kinosaki has seven public bath houses. As an overnight guest at a ryokan in Kinosaki, you can receive a free pass to all of them!
