Take a break from the city and discover the ancient pastime of onsen – a traditional-style Japanese hot spring spa that have been utilized by weary travelers for centuries.
Kinosaki Onsen is one of Japan’s most beautiful onsen towns and on your brief visit you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a pass to visit up to 7 of the most iconic local onsen baths.
To complete the experience, you can also dress up in traditional Japanese robes (yukata) and wooden clogs (geta) to fully embrace the era the town represents. You’ll also enjoy an authentic multi-course kaiseki dinner at your tatami-matted ryokan guest house.
A wonderful place to enjoy no matter what time of year you visit, this quaint town blossoms in every season. From the snowfall in winter to the changing colors of autumn, the 8th century onsen town is a step back in time to old-world Japan.
