HEAR FROM OUR LOCAL KINOSAKI EXPERT
Welcome to my town of Kinosaki Onsen. I am the fourth generation ryokan master of Tajimaya Ryokan here in Kinosaki Onsen. Before beginning my work here I lived and studied in Las Vegas for four years. Living abroad gave me a new prespective and appreciation for the beauty of Japanese “Wa” and the remarkableness of my town.
I invite and urge you to come and experience the tradition of my town. I highly suggest staying in a ryokan and taking an extra day to do almost nothing, just relax in your room with a book. On the other day you should definitly experience the hot springs, wear a yukata, order a kaiseki dinner at your ryokan and enjoy the atmosphere and nightlife of Kinosaki Onsen.
