Kinosaki Onsen Hot Springs Stay

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 888

Unwind from your Kyoto sightseeing in the traditional Japanese way, staying at Kinosaki Onsen. Stay in a traditional Ryokan in Kinosaki, enjoying a range of unique traditional bath facilities.


This 3-day stay lets you experience the onsen, a mainstay of Japanese tradition and health.

Transfer from Kyoto to the beautiful village of Kinosaki, and check into your traditional ryokan accommodation. Sleep on a comfortable futon, enjoy a multi course kaiseki traditional dinner, and bathe in the traditional hot springs that define the onsen experience. Most baths are gender separated, but you’ll have access to your own open-air hot spring bath from your room. With two nights here, do as much or as little as you’d like, perhaps taking in the Onsenji temple, or exploring the town before returning to Kyoto.
