Ryokan Yamamotoya

Ryokan in Kinosaki Onsen

Right on Yanagi-dōri, conveniently located for Kinosaki's soto-yu (public bathhouses), this long-running ryokan (350 years!) is well kept and welcoming. Rooms have river or mountain views but no private bath (sink and toilet only). Solo travellers are accepted in spring and autumn only and must pay a single supplement.

It runs brew-pub Gubigabu next door.
