Walking along the streets you hear the click clacking of Geta in the cobbles. It’s very easy to find your way about whisky walking along the canal

Even if it's raining, the streets are charming. You can see a lot of people walking around, many wearing traditional yukata although seeing this on western people seem quite off, sometimes even clumsy. Nevertheless you can experience all and the calmness of the onsen town....More

Lovely place. It's not as other onsen towns that are only pedestrian, but in Kinosaki Onsen cars are allowed in almost every street. Still, everything is beautiful, peaceful and photogenic. Lovely town.More
