The furthest of the onsens in Kinosaki, I loved how it wasn't overcrowded (I could be wrong as I came here early in the morning). Standard indoor pool but it's outdoor pool is nice as you're right next to nature.

That’s what the onsen brochure said. This onsen is the one end of town, across from Osenji Temple and the Kinosaki ropeway. It is about a 15-min walk from the train station. A very nice onsen with a nice outside bath (RO-TEN-BURO). You get a...More

I used the outdoor pool. It's non peak hour at about 12.50pm. Not over crowded at all. Peaceful and calm.

It is somewhat older than the other baths and there were only two grannies when I went, which meant I had the outdoor bath ALL TO MYSELF! It was awesome. The other 2 baths to which I went before were crowded and noisy. Perhaps due...More

This was our second favourite onsen in Kinosaki after Satonoyu...it has lovely outdoor baths with views of the mountainside behind Kinosaki. A little harder to get to than the other baths as it's at the end of town away from the station, but worth the...More

You should consider this onsen if you are going to the Ropeway. This makes a very good side trip after the hike up the peak. This one is the furthest away from the train station. It is not as glamor as the other onsens as...More

Ko no Yu (鴻の湯) is the furthest public onsen from Kinosaki station, and nearest to the ropeway entrance. Its exterior is very charming with 2 Japanese stork statues, and there's a mini garden for photo-taking enthusiasts. This onsen is said to bless its visitors with...More
