We stayed here over the Christmas period. This was a truly authentic Japanese onsen experience and is highly recommended. I would consider myself a relatively experienced user of Ryokans and would rate this one extremely highly for service, authenticity, comfort and particularly food. What I liked: - The amazing matsuba crab kaiseki (only in season for part of the year).... More

Kinosaki is a magical place and this is a delightful place to experience it from. The service is outstanding - friendly and helpful in equal measure. Our garden room was stunning. We upgraded on the meal although some more beef and fewer crab courses would have been good! The Onsen here are good for when you have explored the town.... More

Over Christmas, we stayed at this lovely ryokan where we dined fabulously and bathed religious (it's an onsen town afterall)! We upgraded our in-room kaiseki dining to the Matsuba Crab menu which turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip! The quality and presentation of all 12 courses was simply top-notch. We loved how everything was prepared... More

I brought my mom and brother with me to Kinosaki for our first time and I am so glad we stayed with Nishimuraya Honkan. (It was so worth the splurge.)

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
