"In northern Hyōgo Prefecture, Kinosaki is one of Japan's best places to sample the classic onsen experience. A willow-lined canal runs through the town centre, and many of the houses, shops and restaurants retain their traditional charm. Add to this the delights of crab fresh from the Sea of Japan in winter, and you'll understand why this is one of our favourite overnight trips from the cities of Kansai."


Nishimuraya Honkan

"Best Onsen Ryokan" in Japan, as rated by Lonely Planet

"Now in its seventh generation, this luxurious hot spring inn is the real deal. Its maze-like layout lends a sense of privacy, the two onsen baths are exquisite, most rooms look out over private gardens, and there's a private gallery of art and historical artifacts. Seasonal kaiseki (Japanese haute cuisine) meals are the final touch."
