Located in the Central Area of Kinosaki Onsen
Kinosaki Onsen in Toyooka, Hyogo Prefecture, has a long history of over 1,400 years. It is a famous hot spring site with beautiful scenery of all four seasons, with willows and cherry trees lining the Otani-gawa River, which runs through the center of the hot spring town. Public bathhouse (soto-yu) touring in yukata and geta is one of the true charms of Kinosaki Onsen. Each of the seven public bathhouses has its own origin, history and guardian deity. It has long been believed that people who visit all seven bathhouses will gain seven kinds of good fortune. Shinonome-So is located in the central area of Kinosaki Onsen, just seven minute's walk from Kinosaki Onsen Station, making it convenient to visit the bathhouses and stroll along the willow-fringed Otani-gawa River.
