Orientation

Kinosaki Onsen is flat and easily walkable, about 20 leisurely minutes from end to end. Trains arrive at Kinosaki Onsen Station, in the southwestern corner of town. From here, Eki-dōri heads north and intersects with the willow-lined river Ōtani-gawa. Turn left on the streets paralleling the river, Kitayanagi-dōri and Minamiyanagi-dōri (north and south willow streets), to reach most onsen, inns and restaurants.
