(Kinosaki Onsen, Kyoto-fu, Hyogo-ken) Classic beautiful onsen town - a shrine built to celebrate onsen! The vapor baths (hammam) is where bathing is elevated to a level on the Japanese know how to do!! Perhaps the most interesting onsen town in Japan, located very close to the Japan Sea. So many classic ryokan to explore. The incredible “Soto-yu" is here (indoor, outdoor, saunas, waterfalls, cave baths, hammams and Jap/Euro type spas). Give me a yukata!!
