The best Onsen Town in all japan! Take the trains from Kobe, Osaka, or Kyoto. Leave your luggage behind and take an overnight bag to bring back Tajima Sake!

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.
