An elegant and authentic stay at a renowned hot-spring resort

Nishimuraya Honkan

Kinosaki Onsen Nishimuraya Honkan checks all the boxes for an elegant Japanese retreat. Before you even set foot in one of its beautiful onsen baths, its traditional “Sukiya-zukuri” architecture and perfectly-pruned Japanese garden offer instant tranquility. "Sukiya-zukuri" is the same architectural style that inspires most tea houses. Rooms feature "tatami" mats, sliding "shoji" doors, and the option of a wooden terrace overlooking the garden and a private open-air bath — the ultimate in luxury. There's always something different to enjoy from the comfort of the terrace — the garden's cool summer breezes and delicate winter snowfalls.

The communal onsen consists of three separate baths, each in a different style. The town of Kinosaki is known for its seven famous onsens, and it's a tradition when visiting to don your "yukata" (cotton robe) and try each one of them to discover their delights. Guests of Nishimuraya Honkan have free access to all seven onsens for free. After a bath, settle in for authentic Japanese "kaiseki" cuisine, famous for Matsuba crab, a type of snow crab, and Tajima beef, known for its high marbling. Enjoy the warm hospitality of Nishimuraya, and renew your spirit in Kinosaki.
