We would like to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to all those who have passed away due to COVID-19, including their families and all those involved. We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to healthcare workers, the government, government agencies, and everyone else who is committed to preventing infection.

In response to the recent declaration of emergency, Hyogo Prefecture and Toyooka City have requested the suspension of businesses, and Kinosaki Onsen is prioritizing the social responsibility to prevent the spread of COVID-19, giving top priority to the safety of guests and employees. We have decided to close all the ryokan/inns in the Kinosaki Onsen Ryokan Association from April 27th to May 31st*.

*Select ryokan have decided on a reopening date later than May 31st. Please see here for a list of those ryokan and their planned reopening dates.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
