We think of the Kinosaki Onsen town as 'one ryokan'.
The station being the entrance, the streets being the corridor, the public bathhousess being the interior baths (baths of the ryokan) and the ryokan being the guest room and the stores being the gift shop.
We warmly welcome not only the guests to our own ryokan and shops, but we warmly welcome all guests to the town as if they were our own. This is one of the attractions of the "Kinosaki Onsen Ryokan (the entire town of Kinosaki Onsen)"


In the spring, the sakura flowers proudly bloom (Kiyamachi-Dori and the area around the springs Motoyu), and in the early summer the fireflies dance(Kiyamachi-Dori), and the willows grow new green leaves (Yanagi-Dori). In the autumn, the trees dye their branches with beautiful fall leaves (Kiyamachi-Dori, the small streets with sakura trees around Motoyu) and in the winter, the beauty of the snow fall covers the land as if it was beautiful white make up.
The streets of Kinosaki Onsen change their expressions with the seasons and the beauty is extremely alluring. The allure is not only the sights, but also the seasonal scents, the sounds of geta (wooden clogs) walking through the town provides the five senses with seasonal excitement. Any time you visit Kinosaki Onsen, you will be met with an enjoyable onsen town with the deepest of tastes.

7 Outdoor Baths

"Kinosaki Onsen is also known for the ability to tour the town's seven different outside or public bathhouses and their hot springs. Each hot spring is also said to promote a different fortune such as good luck, granting of a wish, business success, safety, and good health for your family. Each onsen features different types of baths such as "open-air baths", a "water-fall bath" and a "cave bath".
Also, the first person to enter each location every day will receive a special "Ichiban Fuda (first person ticket in the form of a wooden plaque)" . Please enjoy your time touring the public bathhouses and their hot springs.
