Want to savour a quintessential Japanese experience? The Nishimuraya Hotel Shogetsutei is the largest ryokan-style hotel in Kinosaki Onsen with both Japanese and western-style accommodation for couples to choose from.
Kinosaki Onsen is located on the Sea of Japan in northern Kansai and is known as the country’s most beautiful spa town. With its little stone bridges crisscrossing the willow-lined Otani River, Kinosaki Onsen looks adorably romantic, especially in the evenings when the lanterns cast their warm glow across the strolling couples.
The Nishimuraya Hotel Shogetsutei sits at the base of a mountain and is surrounded by a lush pine forest. It has 98 guest rooms, both Japanese and Western-style and some Japanese-style rooms have private open-air baths.

The unique experience of spa-hopping dressed up in yukata and geta - a casual kimono and wooden flip-flops. There are seven public hot-spring baths in town and when you stay here you get a complimentary yumepa pass giving access to all of them. It’s such a great way to experience a part of Japan’s unique heritage.
Dining & Leisure
Ricca Restaurant serves up the finest French and Italian cuisine but the star of the show is the famed Kaiseki dinners,especially when the local Matsuba Snow Crab is in season from November to March. Served in a private dining room over several hours, these 12-course tasting menus are worth the trip to Kinosaki Onsen alone - an epicurean masterpiece!
Spa & Wellness
For a private five-star bath experience, book one of the hotel’s three spa suites featuring a glass-walled lounge for relaxing, a bathroom with showers, a wet room and a private terrace hot tub overlooking the peaceful forest view.
