Yamamotoya is in the middle of Kinosaki Onsen, this makes it very easy to stroll to the bath houses, we did two rounds of touring, before dinner and before breakfast. Staff are very service minded, even the maid who took care of us couldn't speak English tried her best to communicate in Japanese and body languages. We got a big... More

Kinosaki onsen is a special place, and the accommodation you choose is all part of the experience, so if you're going to stay overnight it's not worth skimping to save a few thousand yen. That said, Yamamotoya is one of the more reasonably priced ryokans in the town, though this does not mean that there is any economizing in the... More

When we look back at our trip to Japan this will be a genuine highlight. The whole Onsen experience is one that has to be done. Yes it is expensive, but for us one night was enough. Everything from the greet at the station to the time you leave has been thought through. The excellent food in your room at... More

There are so many ryokans in Kinosaki onsen. It was very lucky that my wife and I could stay in this impressive ryokan, Yamamotoya. My wife wanted to have an experience in Japanese traditional ryokan and I was also ryokan virgin. The clerk at the information center in front of train station introduced this ryokan to us. It was the... More

What an amazing place. It was snowing when we arrived after a long-ish journey from Hiroshima but the friendly welcome ,including a courtesy pick up from the train station was warming. The room was so authentic Japanese and overlooked a Japanese garden. Rooms very spacious and on arrival we were given tea and instructions on how to wear our Yukatas... More

I have never been to a hotel that can greet you by your name on your first arrival. They did that. They remembered the shoes for each of us, always nicely placed them at the door when we intended to go out. They served our dinner in our room, 8 dishes each! They sent our luggages to the train station,... More

This place exuded all the charm you would expect from a traditional Japanese ryokan. The staff were very helpful and dressed in lovely kimonos. Our room was on the ground floor and had a lovely alfresco overlooking a sweet Japanese garden. It was large by Japanese standards with an annex, bathroom, toilet, living/sleeping area and alfresco. On arrival we were... More

We had a great time in Yamamotoya. The inn is 1 minute away from two public onsens, and 3 minutes away from another. The service was great. The dinner was a feast. The standard yukata is free. The futon is very comfortable. It was a great first experience in a ryokan. The only thing to note is that wifi was... More
