Street of Kinosaki Onsen, Toyooka

4.5
Take a leisurely stroll down Street of Kinosaki Onsen, the center of the traditional resort area. Famous for its "onsen" (Japanese hot spring spas), pop into one of the seven traditional spas to sample a range of different treatments and relax in the naturally warm water. Watch locals walk around in their "yukuta" (a casual, summertime kimono) between the onsen and "ryokans" (traditional Japanese inns) in a pleasant scene of traditional town life. For a special treat, buy a bag of eggs by the main fountain, and have them boiled in the hot water while you wait. Put Street of Kinosaki Onsen and other Toyooka attractions into our Toyooka itinerary website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • There were still a lot of tourists in plain clothes during the bright time, and I felt that the atmosphere was different from what I thought. But at night it changes completely! The sound of clogs echoing in the city with beautiful lights creates a beautiful view. It is better to go around the hot spring by taking yukata and clogs absolutely!

  • This was my favourite location in Japan and the place I will remember the most. I went in January when it was winter and there was nothing better than walking outside in the snow and then going into the Onsen to warm up. I am not sure how it would be during the other seasons, but in winter it was definitely incredible as it became white from all the snow.
  • Kinosaki Onsen wasn't my cup of tea. Yes, there are 7 different Onsens you can visit and dip into. Of the 7, only 4 are impressive in my opinion. The rest are more like small hot swimming pools. The water in all of them runs around 40 degree Celsius, which might be too much for some. Be mindful on how to take an Onsen bath and cover your tattoo if you have any. The town itself is extremely stressful to navigate during the day. There are no footpaths but a LOT of car traffic, meaning you spend most of your time squeezing against the walls. Not relaxing at all. During night time however, the town is way quieter and most of the bathers will walk around town wearing traditional Japanese outfits, which is charming. The streets are also lit up with lanterns, giving off a cosy atmosphere. The cable car and the mountain is definitely worth a visit.
