Kinosaki Onsen, Best Onsen Town

"Kinosaki is one of Japan's best places to sample the classic onsen experience." -- Lonely Planet

"In northern Hyōgo Prefecture, Kinosaki is one of Japan's best places to sample the classic onsen experience. A willow-lined canal runs through the town centre, and many of the houses, shops and restaurants retain their traditional charm. Add to this the delights of crab fresh from the Sea of Japan in winter, and you'll understand why this is one of our favourite overnight trips from the cities of Kansai" -- Lonely Planet
