After two weeks of exploring Kyoto mostly on foot, there were some taxis involved :), I was ready to sit back, be pampered and relax in Kinosakionsen. I booked my room well in advance of going to Japan and was very pleasantly surprised that they accepted single travelers at this famous Ryokan. From the moment that I arrived at Nishimuraya... More

What an amazing experience we had at this ryokan! We were all first time travellers to Japan (my husband and I travelled with 3 other friends) and misjudged the times for the bullet train from Tokyo and so we ended up arriving extremely late here. We had booked for one night and were worried we would miss out on the... More

We stayed here for one night to get the full Ryokan onsen experience, and although it was expensive we both agree that it was worth every penny! The first thing to commend is the service. The hotel reception had been in constant email contact - arranging our meal (allergies etc..) and transfer to the hotel from the station. When we... More

This is without doubt one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences. We rank it up there with Lake Palace in Udaipur or Falaknuma in Hyderabad. Ultra-luxury with the most attentive service you could imagine. The website does not do justice to Nishimuraya. Our room was huge and we booked standard, so I was convinced we were given an upgrade - not the... More

This ryokan was recommended by my sister, who had stayed here a few months before me. Nishimuraya Honkan is, as far as I can tell, the best ryokan in Kinosaki Onsen, with the best onsen facilities, a lovely building (and a gorgeous courtyard garden) and very nice staff. The location is very central, within walking distance of all the other... More

We wanted to stay at a higher-end ryokan and picked Nishimuraya Honkan because of its reputation online and travel materials we read had great things to say about the ryokan. We stayed one night and ordered the seasonal kaiseki dinner + breakfast. We weren't disappointed! Upon arrival, we were greeted with a staff member who spoke English very well. He... More

Kinosaki is one of the famous onsen (hot spring) towns in Japan, located on the western Japan sea coast. Due to the mountains between Osaka/Kyoto and this area, it is not easy to get to, but there are direct trains from both cities. They will pick you up from the station, but you can also eaily walk (<10min). It is... More
