An onsen for good fortune, Ichino-yu is one of the must visit for Kinosaki visitors. A captivating "indoor cave" is a main feature of this onsen, and it is also centrally located for visitors staying in ryokans.More

Dear Hoon M, Thank you very much for your review. It is our pleasure to know you enjoyed the contrast between the roughness of the cave rock and the gentleness of the hot spring water. We hope to see you again.

This hot spring is good, but there are others that are better in Kinosaki. The good thing is that it is RIGHT in the center of Kinosaki and it was very near my inn.

This one has a quite nice outdoor bath. Visited here on May and it happened that I was the only one bathing there at the time. So it was very relaxing. Second best public bath in Kinosaki in my opinion.
