Kinosaki Onsen

1300 year old hot spring town

Kinosaki Onsen at night

Nestled in a valley, surrounded by mountains and sea, this hot spring town is filled with the tradition and culture of old Japan. Gazing at the classic architecture as you stroll along the willow and cherry blossom lined river, it’s easy to understand why Kinosaki attracts both Japanese and foreign visitors seeking to experience a piece of history and culture. The nostalgic ambience greets you the moment you arrive. The entire town feels like one large singular ryokan. The station is your entrance, the streets the hallways. The inns are your rooms and the hot springs your bath. Slip on your yukata and indulge in some total relaxation in one of the largest ryokans you will ever visit.

PROFILE | MY ARTICLES

I hope I can express to you how special my town is. A town that I feel is one of a kind, a miracle onsen town, and is beautifully suited for yukata.
