Kinosaki Onsen Shinonomesou

A Traditional Onsen Ryokan in the Center of Kinosaki

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 the four seasons, with willows and cherry trees lining the Otani-gawa River, which runs through the center of the hot spring town. Touring the public bathhouses (soto-yu) 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. Shinonomesou is located in the central area of Kinosaki Onsen, just seven minutes' walk from Kinosaki Onsen Station, making it convenient to visit the bathhouses and stroll along the willow-fringed Otani-gawa River.

A private family bath is also available in the annex. For touring the public bathhouses, you have a variety of choices of women's yukatas. Strolling around in a very nice yukata of your choice will be one of the wonderful memories of your trip.
