I have stayed in nicer ryokans but this one is nice and relatively affordable. Its location is ideal for people who want to visit all 7 onsen spas that the pass issued by the ryokan allows you to visit. Book the plan without meals. There are plenty of good food around.

As mentioned before by other guests, Yamamoto Ryokan is well run in an Onsen town worth while visiting. We enjoyed the ambiance in town and especially in the ryokan. Staff is very friendly and professional. Also helpful in choosing an Onsen that suits you. We did not have dinner at the ryokan as we are not big eaters and there...

Yamamotoya is perfectly situated in the center of Kinosaki Onsen about a five-minute walk from the train station. Since it is a small town, location might not seem that important, but when you decide to venture out in your yukata robe and geta wood sandals, you'll appreciate the proximity of the hot springs as you get used to walking in...

Yamamotoya is a traditional inn located in the heart of Kinsaki Onsen. The inn has 15 rooms facing the very picturesque river that runs through the town. The rooms, layout, and food are pretty much what you would expect for the price with Yamamotoya being in the low to mid priced range (Ryokans can be notoriously expensive). The room was...

This was a very classy ryokan hotel, so it was a little pricey in comparison with other ryokan we had stayed at; moreso when you note as well that meals are not included automatically - they are extra, and must be arranged for in advance. There are plenty of local restaurants to choose from within walking distance as alternative options...

Right in the middle of the seven public onsens overlooking the canal in a great location. The rooms are nothing special, but are clean and quiet. We didn't have a chance to try their food unfortunately with quite a number of restaurants nearby. Good value at $200 AUD/$150 US per night.

We had a lovely stay in this traditional ryokan. Warm and friendly. The location is good. It located at the heart of Kinosaki-onsen town and in between the 7 public bathhouses. Three down the road on the right and another three down the road on the left. Around 8 mins walk from train station. Once we came out from the...

We picked this hotel because the price was quite reasonable for a night stay with 2 meals at a traditional onsen ryokan. We were happy with what we got. The room was spacious and overlooked the canal. There is a nice peaceful atmosphere along the canal at night. A service staff comes in to serve the meal during dinner time...

Great experience and best location! It is a traditional Ryokan well located in the city center. (actually there are two main streets in Kinoski Onsen).

It was really a 3.4. Rooms are good view over the willow lined canal was great. Clean and onsen is nice for a ryokan. The whole experience of Kinosaki is great fun. Walking the streets in Kimono and Yukata. They have little ice cream or beer stops along the way as you walk from onsen to onsen. Reason for the...
