Book Cafe Un

Rest With A Book

Kinosaki Onsen has long been a beloved muse for various Japanese artists and authors, even inspiring the celebrated Japanese writer Shiga Naoya to write a book entitled  At Kinosaki.

Book Cafe Un is Kinosaki Onsen’s modern-day twist on the town’s tradition of being a haven for the arts, furnished with mod-art lamps, book sculptures, and even private work spaces inspired by popular symbols found around Kinosaki.

Those looking for a cozy retreat during their stay are welcome to pop in for a coffee and some sweets while they browse through the endless walls of books lining the cafe.


Dorayaki, two small pancakes stuffed with Japanese bean paste and flavored filling, is Book Cafe Un’s staple sweet.

A bar on the first floor sells coffee, teas, and alcohol for visitors to enjoy while they relax and read.
