Just a few train stations from tobu nikko station, this onsen town may be rejuvention spot for locals, esp. Elderly and good for family activities. There are many activities offered to the tourist, such as outdoor onsen, rafting along kinugawa river; best local sweets:-Hachiya baum kuchen shop cake. Esp. Hazelnut cake which ic very quick sold out!!

I only stayed in the town for one hour while waiting for my train back to Tokyo, but this town was so cute that I wish I had more time there. There are maps everywhere to tempt you into trying new things, and you can see that from that city you can go to onsen, or Tobu World Square or... More

Kinugawa is just a separate stop from Nikko however if you are no going to any of the theme park & you are on a limited schedule then you might just consider to skip this place:- 1. Normal Japanese town without much attractions. However I do love the oni (orges) statues that placed all around the town and see how... More

We bought the two day Kinugawa Theme Park Pass from Tobu railways office in Asakusa. The train took about two hours to get there, as the city gave way to farmlands and countryside. We arrived in the town of Kinugawa Onsen at about 9am in the morning, as we had a busy day planned. The railway station and surroundings is... More
